Improving Academic Performance

Relaunch of the MyGuru Blog

Posted by Mark Skoskiewicz on Sun, Aug 26, 2012 @ 02:36 PM

This is an introductory post for the re-launch ofMy Guru’s main blog.  This blog will try to offer information, resources, and advice related to education in a broad sense: tutoring, test prep, educational technology, and career advice.  We have separate blogs on our site related to the GMAT, LSAT, MCAT, ACT, SAT, etc. which will cover content specific to those tests.  Those blogs have explanations of specific concepts, do practice problems, and provide information about complementary resources related to applying to graduate schools.

The focus of this blog is just to provide information and advice about accelerating your education, whether you are in high school, college, or beyond.  For example, at the high school level we will be talking about things like how to balance getting good grades with participating in the right types of activities so that you have the potential to create a powerful college application.  We will talk about the need for AP classes and why they are such a good idea.

At the college level we’ll discuss how to accelerate your journey from student to getting that first job - what types of classes to take, how to excel in those classes, and how to build your resume.

We will also be sharing some thoughts, advice, and updates on the role of technology in education.  My Guru will be offering a way to do one on one tutoring online right here on our website at some point soon.  We believe accelerating the use of technology in education is extremely important.

Finally we will hit on a few other topics that are very relevant to our students.  For example, the skyrocketing cost of education at the high school level, the undergraduate level, and for graduate degrees is something we discuss a lot at MyGuru.  We’ll discuss tips, resources, and advice for how to proactively manage the costs of your education.

We look forward to offering interesting and helpful articles.   If you have any thoughts or ideas for things you’d like to read about, let us know.
