Test Prep & Tutoring in Columbia

All C2 students begin their programs with a full-length Academic Assessment. Gina uses the results of these assessments to identify each student’s academic needs. With this information in hand, Gina meets with students and their parents to discuss the results and establish academic goals. Gina and her teachers are then able to create a fully customized program designed to build on strengths while addressing weaknesses, thus maximizing student results and boosting student confidence.

Gina leads a team of expert tutors. Several of C2 Columbia’s tutors attended the very same high schools their students are currently enrolled in, including Dulaney High School, Eleanor Roosevelt High School, Mount de Sales Academy, and Gilman School. C2 Columbia’s tutors graduated from some of the top schools in the nation, including Harvard University, Brown University, Swarthmore College, and the University of Maryland at College Park. These impressive academic backgrounds allow C2 Columbia’s tutors to not only provide academic support, but also guidance through the college admission process.

Kenneth graduated from nearby Eleanor Roosevelt High School before studying Computer Science at the University of Maryland, College Park. Though Kenneth specializes in math, chemistry, physics, and other STEM fields, he is a versatile teacher capable of helping students in many subject areas. “I’m very fond of the variety of topics I have the opportunity to teach,” Kenneth says. “Nowhere else would I be able to cover the entire range of physical science and mathematics in a single day with a wide range of students at all skill levels. Because of this, each day is exciting and brings new challenges.”
