At Academic Solutions, We Provide:

An In-Depth Analysis of Your Score

At Academic Solutions, we begin test preparation with a complete analysis of your most recent score and an understanding of the score you are trying to achieve. A student can present a score taken with a testing service (if he/she also has the test booklet used for that test) or the student can take a full-length practice exam at our facility.

In either case, we evaluate the score to determine which types of questions the student is missing and, from this, determine which skill areas need to be improved to achieve a better score.


A Personalized Score Improvement Program

Once we have analyzed the score, we will meet with you to discuss the results. In this conference, we will show you what areas must be improved to move from the current score to the score you are trying to achieve.

For students who are unclear about their college plans, we discuss their grades, classes, possible areas of college study and give them a variety of college options available to them with their current score and the new doors that could be opened with a higher score.

Re-Test, Re-Assess, Re-Focus

At pre-determined points in the program, the student will take additional practice tests. Each time the student takes a new test, we re-evaluate the score, re-assess the new test, and re-focus the student’s program to account for the score increase and the need to work at a higher level.

We will hold a parent/student conference to discuss the new results and the plan for moving forward.

We are successful because we have a totally different approach to test preparation!

Free College Planning Is Part of the Plan

In each of these score-conferences, we discuss new colleges that the student may consider and talk with the students about other colleges he/she has been considering.

We have found that the ongoing discussion of colleges and opportunities is not only motivating for the student but also enlightening as he/she is continually learning about schools and opportunities that might not have been considered. See our College and University Planning section for additional college and university planning services.

A Great Essay is very important

With the final increase of the student’s score, it is time to apply! We are there for you!

Students (and parents!) can be overwhelmed by the application process and the essays in particular. We will meet with you to help plan a great essay. Once you are done with writing the essay, we can help with the editing process as well by providing you with comments for further improvements. From start to finish, we want to see the student through to the end!

#1 We Focus on Developing Reading and Math Concepts

Our approach is simple: the higher skill level you have, the more right answers you will get on the SAT/ACT. In our courses, we teach the student to comprehend college-level reading, write advanced compositions, and understand how to solve complex math problems.

In short, we are preparing each student to take on college-level work and, through this, watching the ACT or SAT score climb. This approach has allowed students improve on the SAT of 200+ points and of 4 points to their composite score on the ACT!

#2 We Don’t Teach a Course, We Teach You

At Academic Solutions, our student-instructor ratio is 2:1 in math and 3:1 in critical reading/writing. This low ratio allows us to focus on one student at a time. We use your test to focus on the areas you need to improve. We have determined that courses of 10 or 20 students do not allow for this level of personalization.

By working with students individually we help them focus on their particular area of difficulty, show them how to use their schoolwork to develop skills and provide them with ongoing encouragement as they navigate the sometimes frustrating path of test preparation.

#3 Our Approach Works

At Academic Solutions, we teach students to break the passage apart as they read it and anticipate the questions they are likely to get. Then, by teaching our students the key critical reading skills continually measured on the SAT and ACT tests, they develop the reading strategies they need to tackle the questions with the confidence of a strong reader.

At Academic Solutions, each student will acquire the important reading skills he/she will use on the test and take with them for greater success in college!
