*Average is calculated based on reported scores before and after tutoring. We can help determine realistic goals for every student. Almost always, these goals are far exceeded and we are proud to hear the countless success stories! While we know that our tutors will give your student the keys to success, sometimes outside factors can influence individual results that are simply outside our control. Be confident that we will do our best to help overcome any obstacles and put your student on a path to academic success! Scores are guaranteed to improve – or you can re-take the course for free a second time! To qualify for a free second class, students must have completed all assignments and homework, as well as attended every class. Finally, parents must provide documentation of tests taken before the first day of class as well as after the final class day.

  ** For 1-on-1 tutoring, we encourage students to regularly take a proctored or at-home practice exam. Parents are able to administer at-home exams. While the exams are provided free of charge, there is a $25 charge for grading by an SAT specialist. This fee also includes a detailed score report with our individualized recommendations.
