This Summer Enrich Your Student with Customized Academic Skill Building

3 Key Steps to Getting Started with Academic Approach At Academic Approach, we know that no two students share the same academic strengths, learning style, or personality. Students are different in essential ways, so we make the time to develop a customized tutoring program for each one. This summer, we’ll be celebrating 20 years of helping students succeed through our approach, providing students with skills and strategies to increase both their standardized test scores and their overall academic performances. Students in 2020 were faced with difficult academic challenges: interrupted learning, cancelled benchmark testing, and a lack of consistent, individualized instruction. As your family plans to return to a ‘normal’ academic schedule in Fall 2021, our team at Academic Approach looks forward to providing you with the opportunities to support your student’s academic achievement and excellence. 1. Personalized Consultation: One of our expert directors will meet with your family to: Discuss your student’s unique needs, learning style, and aspirations Tailor an effective study plan that targets specific goals 2. Customized Tutoring Program: We’ll design a personalized program to: Identify high-impact gaps in skills & strategies through expert analysis Match your student to a tutor who provides a personalized one-on-one teaching experience Leverage our superior curriculum to help your student master high-impact skills Accommodate your family’s busy schedule 3. Ongoing Support: As students begin their programs, our directors will continue to work with your family to ensure your tutoring program meets your needs. Our goal is to guide and motivate your student consistently to become a more confident, successful test-taker and student. As the demand of the school year winds down this month, we see summer as a perfect time to engage academic enrichment opportunities for your student(s), especially our rising high school sophomores who are eager to launch their ACT/SAT prep.

You Just Took the April ACT…What Now?

3 Steps to Improvement   For those students who took the ACT in April 2021, we’ve outlined three key steps to create a path for your students academic improvement: 1. RETRIEVE YOUR SCORES  Scores from the April 17th ACT became available yesterday, April 27th. Try to retrieve your scores here as soon as today. 2. ANALYZE YOUR SCORES  Your score report provides some key information that can drive targeted instructional planning. You’ll notice percentage accuracy details under key curriculum categories such as Conventions of Standard English, Geometry, Functions, Statistics, Key Ideas & Details, and Interpretation of Data. This detailed analysis can help drive targeted instructional plans to spot treat efficiently high-impact, low accuracy areas of skills in order to drive further score growth. What’s more, for the December, April, and June national ACT test dates, ACT offers the Test Information Release service. Students can purchase a copy of the actual test questions and a report of the items they missed. The TIR is tremendously helpful in offering detailed insight into the specific question types that challenged students, providing an opportunity for reflection, detailed analysis, and learning. It’s that specific analysis that leads to the greatest growth. 3. MAKE A PLAN Once you analyze results and make a focused, personalized instructional plan, there are plenty of dates ahead for retesting. June, July, September, and October all present opportunities for retesting prior to early admissions deadlines. With ACT superscoring now available this can only be a benefit. Please let us know if we can help you analyze your student’s score report, identify key error patterns in your student’s TIR (Test Information Release), and develop a targeted plan for optimizing your student’s potential for further learning and growth.
