We grow together

“We do not have enough words to express our warmth and admiration for the marvelous team at Academic Approach. The teachers care about the overall well being and success of their students—not merely academics. They provided excellent feedback, identified strengths and weaknesses, and gave advice on course decisions and career strategy. Our boys found mentors and lifelong friends in their teachers at Academic Approach, and continue to keep in touch with many of them, long after having graduated from school.”

Seema Singhal, Parent, University of Chicago Laboratory School

“Throughout my time with Academic Approach, I saw a lot of results and overall I just became a better test taker. I had a good bond with my tutor. He seemed to get my learning style.”

Ben Schwan, Student, New Trier High School

“Our family has used Academic Approach for both test preparation and academic tutoring. We can’t say enough positive things about the results. Test score improvement is clearly demonstrable, but as important is the improved critical thinking and academic results in school. We truly appreciate what Matthew and his team have been able to achieve with our children.”

Michael & Susan Canmann, Parents, North Shore Country Day School

“While other companies focus on tricks to beat the test, Academic Approach focuses on problem solving and learning grammatical rules or reading strategies to assist with multiple choice tests. The results have been nothing short of remarkable; our students have qualified for more scholarships and have been admitted to more colleges.”

Susan Weingartner, Director of College Counseling, Francis Parker School

“Our experience with Academic Approach was outstanding in every respect. Our son’s tutor was a perfect match in his approach, the workload he assigned, and in personality. Our son so enjoyed working with Academic Approach that his test prep experience was fun — AND he achieved superior results on both his SAT and ACT tests the first time around.”
