Preparing for a high-stakes exam can be challenging but LAS provides individualized instruction that leads to measurable results. The LAS Test Prep Method is a structured, evidence-based approach to learning and achievement that begins with an Individual Education Plan. LAS Educational Coaches understand the significance of a goodness of fit and the working alliance between a student and an instructor. LAS Test Prep provides One-on-One Meetings, Hybrid Workshops, and Crash Courses. LAS instruction is individualized and provides support and accountability, to strengthen test-taking skills and enhance achievement outcomes.
Educational Coaching is often associated with homework completion, test preparation, and test remediation, based on backfilling knowledge gaps. With 25 years of experience, LAS knows that academic support must extend beyond knowledge gaps and tutoring to support students at the point of need and reduce or mitigate the factors that impede their learning.
LAS Coaches understand that every student learns in a unique way and requires executive functioning skills to do so. Executive functioning skills are mental processes such as self-regulation, planning, focus, decision-making, and memory. Because they mature over time and are dependent on many factors, LAS Coaches provide differentiated learning strategies to their students and residents. Differentiated approaches help students identify their strengths, emerging skills, and potential obstacles, so they can learn how to learn effectively and achieve at the highest levels.
