Research Mentorship

Our network of 90+ tutors and mentors help students delve deeper into subject matter that interests them and think academically about their passions. Our mentors are pursuing research themselves, either at the PhD or Masters level, and are able to guide students in their own research. Learning to do academic research, prepare for competitions, and even publish one's own findings as a high school student can help open many doors in the realm of college admissions and beyond!

Why Should You Have a Research Mentor in High School?

Developing Your Interests
High school classes and extracurricular activities are limited and do not allow students to delve deeply into their interests. For example, if a student is interested in understanding more about environmental science, most high schools will not be able to provide curriculum and guidance on that topic. Working with a Research Mentor, students can look into how environmental science, current events, and issues in their community are connected, gaining valuable experience and knowledge in the process!
Developing Your Interests
Thirst for Knowledge
Instead of telling colleges about how much you enjoy learning, you can show them by turning your thirst for knowledge into an important project. Doing your own research, possibly publishing the results, or even assisting your mentor in their research, are all ways to showcase how excited you are to learn and be an active member of the academic community.
Thirst for Knowledge
Up For A Challenge
High school, college, and the rest of life are all full of challenges. While many students show that they are not afraid of a challenge by taking difficult AP, IB, and other college level course, many fewer students embark on academic research that is local, focused, and unique to their story. Embarking on your own research alongside an experienced and nurturing mentor sets you apart from the crowd and prepares you for other academic challenges in your future.

21 Years of Happy Clients!

Linda, Private School Parent
I’m sharing the photo of our very happy Yale-bound seniors!! My girls could not be prouder, happier, or more grateful!! The girls are 2 of only 3 kids, not only accepted to Yale early, but accepted to any of Yale, Harvard, Princeton!! Typically there would be 10 from that cluster!
Jenny, New York Mom
I wanted to tell you that [my daughter] got into Michigan. She was also accepted at U Mass and UVM with merit money and Binghamton as well, but Michigan is huge – apparently very few students were accepted so far and she is the only one from Beacon. Thank you for your help - we are thrilled.
Lissa, High School Student
Michael S. is so smart, patient, very enthusiastic, and he helps me stay motivated and engaged. It is so clear he wants me to succeed and I can't thank him enough for all that he has helped me with over the past few months.
