Student-Specific Approach to Learning
At Academic Tutoring & Testing, we believe that all students have unique learning styles. Our tutors and staff treat each student as an individual and focus on making a plan that helps them succeed in and out of the classroom. We offer a free consultation to all clients so that we can better learn about our students' needs. We also work with counselors, teachers, and learning specialists to determine the best course of action. Our sessions and tutors are flexible. We understand how busy high-school students can be, and we are more than willing to work around your schedule. You can sign up for as many or as few classes as you need.
Whether your child is gifted or diagnosed with an attentional/processing disorder or learning disability, we believe that your child is more than a label. Our highly trained, experienced tutors are equipped to address the academic needs of all types of learners in a variety of subjects. We offer flexible tutorial sessions year-round to meet students’ individual needs in school subjects including, but not limited to, math, science, English, AP courses, and foreign languages.
95% of our students improve their ACT scores—average increase 3.5 points
We don’t use canned programs. Instead, we use real ACT and SAT exams to teach our students individually tailored tips and strategies to help them succeed. In our ACT and SAT prep classes, students work one-on-one with a tutor, who is trained in teaching students how to achieve on standardized exams. During the sessions, our tutors break down each section of the ACT/SAT, providing strategies such as how and when to guess, time management, shortcut solutions to problems, how to use the calculator efficiently, and how to manage stress throughout the exam. We also have a great deal of experience helping students who are granted extended time on the exam learn how to best use it.
Assistance with Online and Alternative Education Plans
ACA Tutoring has a long history of helping students find creative ways to get through difficult courses (e.g., online learning), balance busy extracurricular schedules with education, and make up credits that were missed due to illness or other issues. We work directly with school, parents, and students to implement a plan that works best for all parties. We are also an accredited proctor for several online school options.
In the News
I highly recommend Academic Tutoring & Testing for families seeking college test prep. My son Graham had scored well on the ACT but felt he had a couple of points still left in him. His tutor taught him the strategies he needed to achieve that goal. Graham’s high ACT scores helped him reach his ultimate goal of attending the United States Air Force Academy.
