Proudly Serving Local Maine Communities for Nearly 20 Years

Welcome To The Study Hall

The Study Hall serves hundreds of students each week in a variety of subjects, but each student comes to us for a different reason.  Most of our students attend after-school tutoring sessions at least twice a week.  During these sessions, the tutor and student follow school curriculum to strengthen the subjects that need attention.   At The Study Hall, we will familiarize ourselves with each teacher and school in order to meet the expectations of everyone involved. The Study Hall customizes the tutoring experience to fit almost any student need. During the summer, we help students achieve credits through independent study and offer a variety of enrichment programs for all ages. During the school day, we work with several home-schooled students in needed subjects. If you have a unique situation, give us a call. We specialize in finding solutions that are best for the individual student – just ask any of the 5000 students we have worked with!

The Study Hall Difference

Solutions that fit your needs. The Study Hall offers customized tutoring plans for each student. It all begins with the first session where we assess the student’s strengths, weaknesses, and educational goals.  From there, we create a program just for them.

Ahead of the curve. Our expertise and personalized approach make us the best at what we do. We prepare students more effectively than other programs because each of our students has a tutoring plan geared to their specific needs and aspirations.

More than just a tutoring center. And you are more than just a client. We help our students gain confidence so they can reach high and achieve more – in school and beyond.
