About Us

How we started

Compass Points Solutions originated in the spring of 2012 to meet the needs of students transitioning from elementary school to intermediate and middle school. Middle school can bring dramatic increases in the number of tests taken as well as increased homework loads. Students may find themselves overwhelmed by these demands because they have never been specifically taught the skills they need to manage their work or their time. Over the past several years, the number of complaints from parents about the amount of work and the number of tests students are taking has grown.

Compass Points Solutions, through its CPStudySmart class,  offers ways to help students learn specific skills to make their study time more effective and their school experience more successful. We offer one-on-one tutoring as well as special programs to help your child succeed.
