Description

At LA Tutors 123, they believe that it’s more than just the grades that make a great well-rounded student. Each one of you is creative in his or her own way: some of you blog; others curate documentary photography on Instagram; still others find imaginative ways to solve problems in their public and private lives. Creativity is the air each one of us breathes, but sometimes we get so concerned with grades that we forget that imagination is our natural problem solver.

One way to showcase your creativity is to innovate either by solving a problem, by designing something that helps others solve problems, or by enhancing our relationship with whatever matters to us. Innovation is what brings our technical skills and our hopes together in unique ways.

It also provides opportunities for gaining real-working experience in a chosen field, and gives students the chance to connect with professionals outside their circle who might be able to help students get into their top choice program. In the end, innovation makes people look at the bigger picture, which is the best preparation for college, graduate programs, and more.
