College Admissions Tutoring, SAT, ACT, School

College admissions is often a mystery for families. As an incoming class is shaped, usually holistically, there are far too many qualitative and quantitative factors that come into play. Among these, grades at school and SAT & ACT scores are important, and this is where the highest quality tutoring comes into play.

The most important pages on this site are Named Validations along with Hundreds of Testimonials and About Me. Please read them and call me directly at 833-628-4833. I take great pride in providing by far the best tutoring available for schoolwork and standardized testing, and seeing my students succeed! While others provide unsubstantiated hype – my proven results, prominent named validations, and hundreds of testimonials are what matters. I personally provide all instruction, and one-on-one educate each of my students to reach their full potential and excel.

Contemplate the following scenarios. The landscape is constantly changing, and this food for thought must be taken in context with an open mind.

  • Two students have comparable transcripts and extracurriculars. For a test optional college, one applicant submits great test scores while the other does not submit any scores…
  • Highly selective colleges want to approach a “zero percent admit rate”…
  • For the same course, a teacher at one school covers much more material and is a tougher grader than a teacher at another school…
  • Different teachers at the same school teach and grade their classes differently. Unfortunately, colleges usually do not know grade distributions between teachers at the same school…
  • From an article in USA Today High School Sports: “I wish every recruit at this camp had his GPA on the front of his jersey, and his standardized test score on the back of his jersey”…
  • This may spark a heated debate as everyone has their own priorities: “We go to school and participate in extracurriculars, we do not go to extracurriculars and participate in school”…
  • The championship lacrosse playoffs are scheduled as a Friday night game the day before the SAT… (this actually happened to one of my students)
  • Some high school coaches are not teachers and don’t care about academics (unfortunate but true)…
  • A student aces math at school, but the SAT or ACT math score doesn’t align…
  • A student aces the math SAT or ACT, but the math grades at school don’t align…
  • A student aces math at school and aces the SAT or ACT, but the material was never learned correctly in high school and the student struggles at college…
  • The goal is not just to get into your college of choice, but also to succeed there. Solid academic preparation is paramount. Did the student memorize methods and procedures, or truly understand the material…
  • The art of tutoring has been tarnished by the overwhelming crowd of commodity tutors and services. Anyone can “hang a shingle”. Check the job boards to see what you’re really getting before engaging a particular company, large or small…
  • Your student’s teacher may not be a subject matter expert for the class, but was assigned the vacancy. Will the student be well prepared for the next school year? The colleges will see the grades and never know…
  • A number of math and science teachers at prestigious private high schools don’t have degrees in the subjects they teach, and some are only a few years out of college and learning on the job. One day that teacher may be phenomenal, but for now the student pays the price. Look up teacher profiles, and eyes wide open when a college but not a major nor concentration is listed…
  • Learning the material from school is paramount, but classroom teaching is not one-on-one. A student without a renowned tutor to teach them properly can form wrong foundations, upon which future material is layered…
  • Done properly, SAT or ACT math preparation is a journey towards educational excellence to develop problem solving skills, learn the material correctly, and build strong foundations. Mastering and creatively using knowledge leads to future college success…
  • Standardized test prep done poorly does much more harm than good. A student may not be satisfied with their scores, not master the requisite skills and material, or worse, find themselves floundering at their dream school… (I also tutor college students.)
  • Learning how to learn and mastering problem solving skills go far beyond college. They are necessities for future success…
