The majority of our students are middle- and high-school age. However we can provide beneficial support for students of any age and grade level. We work with students as young as third grade as well as students in college.
The majority of our mentors are graduate students in the Educational Psychology department at the University of Texas and and Texas State University. Dr. Creasy personally interviews each mentor and looks for individuals who understand the learning process and have an excellent personality and background in teaching, coaching or counseling.
Dr. Creasy matches students and mentors based on personality, the mentor’s strengths, and the student’s needs. The goal is to create a match that fosters a strong working relationship where both the student and mentor have a voice.
