Does your student need a better environment to complete their daily homework assignments?

Do you have multi-aged students that have different needs each?

If you said yes to any of these three questions, our Supervised Study Lounge might be a great fit for your student(s).

In keeping with Lagniappe Educational Service’s commitment to maximizing the academic success of every student we tutor, we now offer the full range of options for after-school academic assistance for students K-12.

Personalized Tutoring, Studying Guidance, Quiet Environment

Peer Distraction

While our standard Varsity Homework Lounge is geared towards motivated students that require less intensive support in lieu of a studious conducive environment, our Varsity Homework Workshop is primarily for those that may require more intense academic support for their success. 

While we keep our VH Workshops under 5 students per room, per educator, each student is provided with the personalized assistance needed to get organized and started with their assignments in a more uninterrupted environment.  Our goal in our VH Workshops is to provide as much assistance as needed to complete their assignments and better comprehend the subject matter.

SAT Test Preparation FAQs

How can I improve my SAT score by 200 points?

There is no right or wrong way to increase your SAT score as long as you put in the work. SAT prep courses are a great way to improve your SAT score. For more information on SAT scores, check out our guide on SAT scores.

Are SAT prep courses worth it?

Yes, SAT preparation classes are worth it. Our tutors review material students have learned in ways they may not have encountered. ACT preparation sessions will help identify strengths and weaknesses, provide a study plan, and allow students to practice taking tests released by ACT. We have an edge because we take every test as they are released to stay fresh on techniques and material. This dedication to remaining current has lifted some of our highest achieving students from not only being accepted to the colleges of their choice but to them receiving scholarships for those colleges.

STAAR Test Prep FAQs

Is the STAAR Test Hard?

The STAAR test is meant to be an assessment of what a student has retained at the end of a school year. However, COVID-19 protocols appear to have caused a decrease in the percentage of students who pass portions of the STAAR test. The section that has been affected the most by a lack of in-person instruction is math. Therefore, some extra tutoring in all areas, but especially math, would be beneficial.

What is a Passing Score on the STAAR?

Each grade level receives a unique version of the test that requires a score of 25% to 35% to pass, depending on the district. Parents will receive a report card that shows their child’s overall performance in each area.

How Many Times can you Retake the STAAR Test?

The test is given three times per year in the fall, spring, and summer. It can be retaken at any point, provided the high school student has passed the appropriate course.
