AP Tutoring

Advanced Placement (AP) exams offer high school students the unique opportunity to pursue college-level coursework and earn college credit while still in high school. At Academic Approach, we understand the weight these exams can carry for a student’s academic future, and we’re committed to providing comprehensive, personalized support to help your student excel.

AP Overview

AP Exams and classes offer numerous benefits to students, from demonstrating a commitment to academic rigor to prospective colleges, to earning college credits that can free up time in a student’s university schedule. Our aim at Academic Approach is to help students realize and seize these opportunities, strengthening their educational trajectory in the process.

AP Exam Details

AP Exam Format & Structure

AP Exams typically consist of multiple-choice and free-response sections, with certain subjects having unique formats. At Academic Approach, we ensure our students are fully prepared for all facets of these exams, equipping them with strategies for both multiple-choice questions and free-response tasks.

AP Exam Administration & Scoring

AP Exams are administered by the College Board and scored on a scale of 1 to 5. We thoroughly guide our students through this process, making sure they understand how their knowledge will be assessed and helping them navigate any additional assessments that are part of their chosen AP courses.

Dates & Deadlines

AP Exams are only offered during a two-week period each year in May. At Academic Approach, we encourage our students to plan ahead, ensuring they have ample time to prepare and build the necessary skills to excel in their exams.


The cost of AP Exams is set by the College Board. While these fees can add to the financial burden of education, the potential return—in terms of college credits earned and future opportunities—makes them a worthy investment.
