Benefits of Tutoring and Test Prep

There are several key reasons that make SAT / ACT tutoring and test prep an essential part of the college application process.

  1. Competition is stiff, and acceptance rates to some colleges, such as the Ivy Leagues schools, can be as low as 5%. Developing test-taking skills and strategies can give students an edge over the competition.
  2. Many college scholarships for academic excellence are not available to students unless they achieve a specific PSAT, SAT or ACT score. In general, the higher the score, the more college scholarships are available.
  3. ACT and SAT scores are an equalizer for colleges, placing students from all high schools across the country on a level playing field. If a student’s grades and activities are not exceptional, a higher score may help get him or her into a college or university that would otherwise say no.

Effective tutoring can boost your scores and help you reach the goals you have been striving for.
