About Our Academic Assistance

The Krupnick Approach offers academic and educational assistance to students ranging from middle school to graduate school who are looking to benefit from additional one-on-one support. 

Our founder, Dr. Joseph Krupnick, received his B.A. (Social Studies), M.A. and Ph.D. (Sociology) from Harvard University. His wife, Emily Krupnick, is chief management officer.

While in school Dr. Krupnick deepened an appreciation that learning does not take place in a vacuum or exclusively through exposure to the written word.

Dr. Krupnick and his colleagues work with students in areas such as executive functioning, language processing, attention, college prep, test prep, and special academic-related subject matter to help develop compensatory skills that harness students’ strengths and galvanize their intellectual self-confidence. We coordinate with students, teachers, and parents to customize programs that target academic subjects (often English, history, math, and science), standardized test preparation, and general skill building.

We work hard to co-construct a learning environment that students can begin to manage and, ultimately, come to enjoy. Over time, Krupnick Approach students report improvements in grades (averaging increases of at least two letter grades); in test scores (averaging 7+ increases on the ACT, +250 on the SAT); and in general academic productivity. As important, they report being excited about the process, looking forward to the sessions, and looking forward to school.


We only hire team members who have scored in the 99% on all standardized tests.
