Established in 2009, Scholar’s Secret is Indy’s first and only academic coaching service for high-performing, college-bound students. We also offer top-quality research and editorial services for writers, as well as a variety of consultative and training services for community and other organizations.
Meet the Coach
With Scholar’s Secret, you get an experienced college instructor, professional writer, skilled public speaker, and master’s degreed librarian – all in one! With over 25 years of professional communications and research experience across corporate and academic sectors, Susan Schlag, academic coach, knows how to “bring information to life.”
Susan served on the faculty at IUPUI University Library, where she discovered her abilities to “simplify the complex” and make research fun! She earned her BS in Communications from the University of Illinois and Master’s in Library and Information Science from Indiana University.
For College-Bound Students
Scholar’s Secret’s academic coaching services are specifically geared for motivated teens who want to perform like college students now. We offer both assignment-specific and semester-long programs to help you improve your writing, research, and presentation skills. Term papers, speeches, college / scholarship application essays, and those nerve-wracking college entrance interviews are just a few of the areas in which Scholar’s Secret helps you outshine your peers and achieve your academic goals. Contact us today to discuss what’s best.
Whether it’s a thesis, presentation, grant proposal, or manuscript, we’ll take your written work over the top! If you need help with your research, we can help you there, too. We’re well-versed in nursing and allied health sciences, informatics, social sciences, and business; but will jump at the chance to edit your art, education, and library science documents, too.
Pressed for time? Quick turnaround is our hallmark. Contact Scholar’s Secret today with your editorial challenge.
For Area Professionals
Scholar’s Secret offers strategic consulting services to help local organizations answer “need-to-know” questions about their communities, customers, or other constituents. We’ll plan and facilitate everything from stakeholder input sessions to in-depth one-on-ones so you can take the next step with confidence.
We can also design and deliver team retreats, planning sessions, and custom training workshops. Contact us for details!
