Student Testimonials from Philadelphia

Since 1992, thousands of students in the Philadelphia area have worked one-to-one with our tutors to prepare for the ACT and SAT. Our personalized approach to preparing for the ACT and SAT has proven successful time and again. Our average score improvement on the SAT is consistently about 200 points, and according to a recent company study, 80% of our SAT students improve their scores 150 to 390 points.

Here’s what a few of our Philadelphia SAT and ACT students have to say about A+ and our tutors:

Drew Fullen

I cannot say enough good things about A+ Test Prep. I felt well prepared on test day. Specifically, I learned how to incorporate examples from history and literature into my essay, and learned several ways to arrive at math answers more quickly. Thanks A+!

One of the best things about A+ Test Prep and Tutoring is that you truly feel like you are in a partnership in support of your child.  The relationship doesn’t end with each session; they are constantly working to find ways to help your child. My daughter really struggles with math, but with the support of A+, her downward spiral is being turned around. Her confidence is coming back as her grades go up. The online tutoring has made it easier for her to fit the sessions into her busy schedule. She has responded very well to them because like most teens, she is extremely comfortable online. It has been better than face to face tutoring. I feel really lucky to have A+ on our side.

A dramatic increase and an Ivy League early acceptance – Mission Accomplished! Our experience with A+ for both SAT I and II tutoring was incredible. Kudos to A+ for helping Chris to realize his potential!

240 Point Increase on the SAT      

Chris is an excellent student, which is why we were surprised and worried when the SAT stumped him on the first attempt (even after he had been prepped in a class offered at school). Following his prep work with two amazing A+ tutors, his SAT score increased 240 points. Chris’ tutors took time to connect with him and understand his learning style. We returned to A+ for subsequent SAT II Math tutoring and Chris’ SAT II score improved 100 points. He was accepted into his first choice school, the University of Pennsylvania, and we couldn’t be more pleased. I would be happy to speak with anyone about our wonderful experience with A+ Tutoring.

It was really worth the effort. I wouldn’t have gotten as good of a grade without it. Thanks a lot!
