Getting Started

No two students share the same academic strengths, learning style, or personality. Because students are different in essential ways, Academic Approach custom-designs a test preparation program for each student. Our approach provides students with the tools to increase their test scores as well as master new skills that improve their overall academic performance.

What to expect:


Complimentary ACT or SAT

We begin our programs with a complimentary diagnostic test at one of our test centers. We offer a full-length ACT, SAT, or both if you are debating which test is right for your student. We analyze the score results and use our detailed, proprietary reports to design a tutoring pathway that meets your student’s exact learning needs.


In-Person Consultation

After the diagnostic test(s), one of our expert directors will meet with your family in person to:

  • Analyze your student’s test results together
  • Discuss your student’s unique needs, learning style, and aspirations
  • Tailor an effective study plan that targets specific goals

Personalized Tutoring Programs

Whether your student requires a few lessons or a more extended program, we design your program to:

  • Identify high-impact gaps in skills & strategies through diagnostic testing & 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 the most high-impact skills
  • Accommodate your busy schedule flexibly

Ongoing Support

Once the program begins, a director will continue to work with your family to ensure the tutoring is meeting your needs. Our goal is to consistently guide and motivate your student to become a more self-confident, successful test-taker and student.

Every Student is Different

We know our students; each one is unique. That is why our ACT, SAT, and Middle School test prep is customized to each student and school partner.

We improve your students’ standardized testing by tailoring our research-based, expert instruction and curriculum to your needs.
