A+ Featured Student: Matthew Headley

Matthew Headley, a current Upper Dublin High School student, is the youngest of three brothers who were all able to raise their test scores and achieve their goals with the help of A+ tutors. Reflecting on her sons’ success, Beth Headley gushed, “I was thrilled with all my children’s results and the tutoring they all received. They all improved their test scores more than you even promised! I believe your program truly works!”

A “very motivated and very detail-oriented student,” according to his English and Reading tutor, Barbara Lommer, Matthew earned an impressive 32 on his October ACT, which was a 6 point increase for him!

We recently spoke with Matthew and his tutors to get a better understanding of how they were able to accomplish this remarkable feat.

A+ Featured Student: Regal Noye

We spoke with Regal Noye, a senior at Radnor High School, who recently completed the A+ SAT prep tutoring course. He was thrilled with his results and with his tutor. We asked Regal what made preparing for the SAT with A+ such a rewarding experience for him.

After his mother came across a post about A+ on Facebook, Regal began his A+ journey by taking proctored diagnostic SAT and ACT exams. He was intrigued by the insights he gained as a result of taking the diagnostic exams. Based on the analysis and feedback from those diagnostic exams, and on the advice of A+ directors, he decided to prep for the SAT rather than the ACT.
