Test Prep and One-to-One Tutoring in the Philadelphia Area

One on One Tutoring

At A+ all instruction is one-to-one. We believe one on one tutoring is the best way to help students learn since many of the distractions inherent in a classroom environment are eliminated. In addition, the student is more apt to open up to a tutor with questions or concerns in the more private setting of a one-to-one tutoring session. Your student also benefits from the consistency of meeting with the same tutor each time.

Experienced, Highly Trained Instructors

Quite simply, we hire only exceptional tutors. Our tutors not only have outstanding academic and test preparation backgrounds and skills, they have the ability to teach and motivate students effectively. All tutors are rigorously screened, trained, and performance evaluated.

Totally Customized Instruction

Our tutors determine your student’s strengths and weaknesses as they work together, so the pace and focus of the one on one tutoring program can be adjusted as needed.


Tutoring can take place either in your home or at one of our offices located in Montgomeryville and Jenkintown, PA. We match you with a tutor who can meet with your child at the times most convenient for you and your family. Your child won’t miss any lessons due to scheduling conflicts.


Our curriculum is specifically designed for one-to-one instruction. It is the result of thousands of hours of research and development combined with our experience of working with thousands of Delaware Valley students. As the tests change, our curriculum is constantly being updated and improved.

Customer Service

A+ Test Prep & Tutoring will assign a tutor based on the information you provide about your child’s personality, educational background, strengths and weaknesses, and the results of any evaluations we perform. We strive to make the perfect match between student and tutor from the beginning. If, however, you are not pleased with the tutor for any reason, or if you feel your student does not have a good rapport with the tutor, please notify our office immediately and we will be happy to assign a new instructor. Our office staff will contact you from time to time to discuss your satisfaction with the tutor and the tutoring program, and the tutor will periodically report to you with specific information about your child’s progress.

Progress Reporting

A+ is committed to maintaining close communication with you. Our state of the art, online student progress reporting system gives you 24/7 access to information about your child’s lesson schedule, homework assignments, progress reports, and practice test scoring and analysis.
