One-on-One Tutoring for Lifelong Success

From acing that tough middle school math class to receiving that dream ACT/SAT score, our in-person and virtual personalized tutoring programs support students through every major educational milestone.

Middle School

No matter the high school entrance exam acronym your middle schooler is preparing for (HSPT, ISEE, SSAT, SHSAT, or the CPS Admissions Test), our tutoring will boost your student’s admission chances.


The most customizable of all of our customized tutoring services, academic tutoring helps students achieve their goals, whether it’s getting through a challenging course, preparing for finals, or raising their GPA.


Don’t let the chance to earn college credit pass your student by! Advanced Placement (AP) tutoring will help your student master course content and bring home those coveted 5s on their AP exams.


Our showstopper. Our bread and butter. Our award-winning ACT/SAT tutoring gets results because, quite simply, no one knows how to create data-driven, personalized, skills-based instruction like we do.

It's the Approach that Matters Most

We don’t just prep students for exams here at Academic Approach—we’re in the business of prepping them for life.

Our students soak up more than facts and figures; they master the art of discovery. They cultivate self-belief, forge resilience, and learn the magic of transforming knowledge into real-world applications.

With our helping hand, they’re not just acing exams—they’re morphing into relentless knowledge seekers. We’re not just about passing the test; we’re about crafting lifelong learners. 

Let’s get started on this journey together, shall we?
