What People Are Saying

“Nailing Ninth made all the difference for my son’s move to high school. The transition was much more relaxed than he expected. I’ve felt confident allowing him to manage his schoolwork as a result and he’s done great!” (Julie, Parent)

“[Our daughter] worked very hard and has learned a lot about how she learns and how she needs to study in order for her test scores to more accurately reflect what she knows. Thank you and SOS for your part in the heavy lifting that helped to bring us here.” (Amy Shutkin)

Private Workshops

With 30-days’ notice. SOS4Students can create a private workshop this summer for small groups of students who are friends/classmates (minimum group size is four). This is ideal if your students can’t attend one of our scheduled workshops on the dates scheduled. Private workshops are help Monday through Friday. Contact us at for more information and pricing.
