Acquiring a deeper understanding of the world – be it through the lens of social science, history, biology, or psychology – is one of the most crucial aspects of a modern education. TA can help you both refine your project and acquire the skills to enable you to see it through to a satisfactory conclusion — skills that will serve you well when it comes to doing further projects in the future.
Possibilities for projects (including former TA projects):
-Demographic surveys of student populations
-Collection of biometric data to evaluate correlations with other characteristics
-Analysis of governmental econometric data
-Documentation of health conditions of immigrants in Tokyo
TECHNOLOGY PROJECTS (SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE)
The interface between software and hardware; manipulating machines and code to build robots and drones; designing programs – these are all crucial skills in today’s digital world. Coding, designing, and test-running such initiatives are now regarded as an essential part of a contemporary education, and TA is proud to offer some of the highest-quality training and assistance in this field.
We have supported students on numerous technology projects:
-Chess-playing artificial intelligence engine
-Application of player-tracking devices and analysis of data in sports environments
-Algorithm for automated identification of individuals from visual data
-And far more

One area that we’ve identified is the preparation of middle school students for the increased academic rigors of high school. Starting from 9th grade, the core skills of reading and writing take on new…
During this holiday season, many instructors, students, and parents were traveling. We’ve compared notes about the best ways to pass or make use of the time in transit, irrespective of where you’re coming and going to. Justin – While you’re in transit: Put your work away “Trying to be productive while on a plane is…
“Is there a doctor on the plane?” Niko, a TA instructor who recently started medical school at the University of Nevada – Reno, was recently on a flight from San Francisco to Tokyo, when the call went out over the announcement system. “I didn’t really think I was qualified,” he said later, “but I wanted…
It’s already December, and that means finals and then winter break, when you can at last relax, feast on good food, and work on your college applications!

Hard work produces results. This goes for studying as it goes for anything in life. But could students’ hard work be going to waste if they aren’t studying and working in an effective way? Researchers have conducted experiments in this area and, in the January 2013 issue of ‘Psychological Science in the Public Interest’, a thorough…
The test season is in full swing: many students have checked off the ACT and the SAT (yesterday!) and others are in the middle of AP exams. Naturally, we’re seeing many of our students come in with elevated levels of stress and anxiety.
In this post, we’re going to do a high level review of the 5 key things colleges will be looking for. In the next few posts, we’ll take a deeper dive into each area.
