Frustrated students, who cannot find the information they need ot do their work

The New "R"

The "Three Rs" used to be enough. Today, however, when teachers airily suggest students "just find it on the Internet," and knowledge workers average one and a half business days out of each week looking for information online, can we really afford to ignore research skills any longer?

Despite the seemingly intuitive nature of the Web, we adults often have trouble finding what we want online--imagine what children experience!  

Beat the odds.

Let To The Point Research teach your child the tips and tricks that research professionals use: when to use different search engines, the tools that make searches yield precise results, and strategies for moving beyond the Web to lesser-known sources.

To The Point Research trains students, parents, executives, employees, and research professionals in online and offline research techniques. In addition, we can consult with your school, company, or organization on search strategies for assuring that your productivity rises and frustration dissipates.
