Frequently Asked Questions

WHO ARE YOUR TUTORS? WHERE DO THEY COME FROM AND WHAT QUALIFIES THEM TO TUTOR?

Our College Test Prep Tutors are experts in their field of study and successful students themselves—scoring in the 90th percentile or above on their own college entrance exam(s). They’re current college students, college graduates and teachers at the top of their classes and chosen professions. But these aren’t the only reasons they’re on our list of high quality Tutors. They also exemplify the positive energy and attitude that makes them great role models for kids.

HOW DO YOU GET STARTED?

Simply contact your local College Tutors location to discuss your student’s unique goals. We’ll start by assessing your student’s needs through a personal family consultation. It’s all part of our Complete Family Approach®.

DO YOUR COLLEGE TEST PREP TUTORS HAVE SUBJECT SPECIFIC EXPERTISE?

Absolutely. We would never allow anyone but an expert to tutor your child. Our College Test Prep Tutors have subject-specific expertise. If it's math, it's math. If it's science, it’s science. This allows your student to focus where help is most needed.

HOW MANY TIMES A WEEK SHOULD MY CHILD COME IN FOR TUTORING? HOW LONG ARE YOUR SESSIONS?

It will depend on the needs and goals for your student. Most Test Prep students meet with their College Tutor 2-3 times per week for a 60 minute session. However, many College Test Prep students choose to meet for 90-120 minutes per session. An ideal schedule recommendation will be built into your student’s Test Prep plan after considering their unique needs and other commitments. We’ve found that students who attend all scheduled Test Prep tutoring sessions and complete their homework assignments have the most success on test day.
