A+ uses SAT and ACT materials created by Summit Educational Group, which is based in New England. Summit’s course materials are constantly revised and improved to keep up with the latest changes to the SAT and ACT exams. In addition, based on our more than 20 years of experience in one-to-one SAT and ACT preparation tutoring with Philadelphia-area students, we have developed our own grammar curriculum to supplement the Summit course materials.
We provide each test prep student with math and verbal course books, math and vocabulary flash cards, a grammar packet, and actual SAT and ACT exams. All A+ students complete at least four full-length actual SAT or ACT practice exams during the test prep program.
In addition to the diagnostic SAT or ACT exam that each student takes prior to the beginning of a test prep program, students take short pretests in both math and English. These pretests allow us to quickly determine students’ strengths and weaknesses and to incorporate skill-building exercises into our program.
