Test Prep (SAT, ACT, etc)

Depending on sports and academic schedules, we usually recommend preparing for an SAT 6-12 weeks in advance.  Tutoring involves an initial testing session and a parent conference. (Alternately, you can bring in scores from previous SAT or ACT tests you’ve taken.)  Schedules can be designed to accommodate each student.
 

Academic Tutoring

Academic tutoring is most often for a class in which a student is struggling and can be anything from a one-time review for a test to yearlong support in the subject.  Below is a partial list of the subjects we tutor, in order of popularity.  If your class is not on here, please ask–these are just the most common.

  • SAT/ACT prep
  • College applications/ essays (not strictly a class, we know, but often more work than all the other classes put together!)
  • Algebra II
  • Algebra I
  • History
  • Latin
  • Precalculus
  • Chemistry
  • Geometry
  • English
  • Pre-algebra
  • Writing
  • Spanish
  • …and more!
