ACT Tutoring: Top 5 Reasons You Should Consider A+

February 14, 2015 

Your student has worked hard to build a college résumé with good grades and solid extracurricular activities, so his or her preferred school is bound to send an acceptance letter, right? As we all know, unfortunately it’s not that simple. Standardized test scores also play a big role in colleges’ decision making, so you want to ensure your student is doing everything possible to maximize his or her ACT score.act_tutoring

One-to-one ACT tutoring instruction is a great way to improve his or her score on this important test and increase your chances of admission to your favorite school.

Here are five reasons to consider ACT tutoring from our team at A+:

1. Personalized Help  

At A+ Test Prep and Tutoring, we are well aware that each student has different strengths and weaknesses. Instead of using a generic test preparation book made with a “one size fits all” approach, our one-on-one ACT tutoring program is customized to your student’s specific learning style and needs. Our experienced tutors will analyze your student’s skills, teach all the necessary content, and share effective test-taking tips and strategies. Furthermore, A+ offers personalized online tracking of your student’s one-on-one sessions and practice exams results so that you can review his or her progress.

2. Practice Makes Perfect

Included in your student’s personalized ACT tutoring program is the opportunity to take three actual ACT practice exams. These practice tests allow your student and you’re A+ tutor to see what strategies you have applied correctly, and where you need more practice. Additionally, research has shown that 57% of students who take the ACT more than once increase their composite score upon retesting, so taking practice tests ahead of time can help your student score higher when you take the actual test. 

3. Dedicated Tutors

We require our tutors to take the same test they will be preparing your student for—and not only do we require them to take it, but they must also score in the top 10%. After performing well on the ACT, our tutors go through a rigorous screening, interview, and training process. Furthermore, our tutors represent a wide range of professions—from writers and editors, to engineers and medical students—who not only assist your student in preparing for the ACT, but can also answer your questions about careers and life beyond high school. 

4. Available Anywhere

While A+ Test Prep and Tutoring is a Philadelphia-based company with offices in Jenkintown and Montgomeryville, our tutors are available to serve you wherever is most convenient. In-home tutoring is available, as well as on-site tutoring at local schools and libraries throughout the greater Philadelphia area and the Delaware Valley.  If none of those locations work for you, meet us in our custom designed virtual tutoring rooms for online tutoring, available to anyone.

5. Happy Clients

We know that the services we offer are top-notch, but you don’t have to take our word for it. Since 1992 we at A+ have helped thousands of students prepare for the SAT and ACT. Parents and students alike comment on how helpful the personalization of the ACT tutoring programs are, and the positive effects they have on building student confidence and improving students’ standardized test results.
