Applying to college can be stressful. Fortunately, recent changes to SAT/ACT Essay and SAT Subject Test requirements have simplified the process for most students. The SAT/ACT Essay and the SAT Subject tests are now required by only a small number of schools, giving many students the chance to focus on SAT or ACT test prep or to take only the tests guaranteed to highlight their strengths. Although it is always a good idea to verify what the schools on your list of preferred colleges want from applicants, there are some general guidelines to consider as you plan ahead.

The PSAT is administered in October, and not only can it give you a sense of your potential SAT score, but it also can help inform your preparation for an even better score. Plus, score high enough on the PSAT and you could qualify for the National Merit Scholarship. No wonder it can be an anxious wait for results!
When does the wait come to an end? How can you access and interpret your results? What should your next steps be? Fortunately, you don’t have to wait for those answers.
A+ Test Prep & Tutoring helps students get to the next level. Sometimes that means preparing a student to earn the few extra SAT points he needs to be accepted into his dream school. However, we also help students with a broad range of learning disabilities to prepare for the SAT and ACT. As a parent, you may feel stress, anxiety, and guilt about your student’s learning issues—but you’re not alone. Whether you live near our Montgomeryville or Jenkintown location or prefer in-home sessions, our tutors can bring your student the specialized attention he needs to succeed. The following are some reasons that A+ Test Prep & Tutoring’s one-to-one services may be particularly beneficial to students with special learning needs.
This week we’d like to spotlight A+ tutor Tom Spencer. Tom is a software development management consultant, with a bachelor's degree in math from Bucknell University.
Tom works with our ACT and SAT prep students on the math portions of the test. He also tutors our Philadelphia-area students in Algebra, Calculus, Geometry, Probability & Statistics, and Trigonometry.
McLean Dyer is the kind of person one thinks of when the phrase “practice makes perfect" is used.
Though McLean is from Wayne, Pennsylvania, he’s attending high school at Saddlebrook Tennis Academy, a premier tennis academy in Wesley Chapel, Florida.
This week we'd like to spotlight A+ tutor Bob Wolpert. Bob, a full-time math teacher for more than 40 years, who specializes in geometry and algebra tutoring for our Philadelphia area tutoring students. He also works one-to-one with our ACT and SAT test prep students on the math sections of the college admissions exams.
All of our Philadelphia tutors love working with our students on a day-to-day basis. To get an idea of why they love doing what they do, we decided to ask them at a recent professional development conference.
