How We Differ and Why it Matters

Excellence for College figures out EXACTLY what is going wrong and fixes it! We provide ongoing and detailed analysis of each student’s progress. Many agencies stop there and keep students from reaching their full testing potential. In contrast, our programs include  personalized assignments that strategically target areas in need of improvement.

Many tutoring agencies just provide a “score report.” That report typically shows how a child performed in limited number of pre-defined areas of the practice test. At that point the student is simply tested again.

With each Excellence for College assignment and practice test, our finely tuned analysis allows us to identify “trouble spots” within more categories than what agencies provide. We then strategically target these areas with specific assignments, and take it one step further as we build on skills by working them into the actual test framework. In doing this, students gain practical experience using what they learn within the framework of the test. Our track record is proven and our system works.

“Amy provided outstanding tutoring to my daughter. A friend recommended Amy to assist my daughter in Honors Chemistry. Amy helped my daughter to really understand the concepts and to be able to answer the most difficult problems. She was very proud of her A in the class. When we started looking for an SAT tutor I was overjoyed to find out that Amy also helps students with the SAT. She helped my daughter acquire the skills she needed along with a new confidence that I haven’t seen in her before. She went into the exam confident that she was going to do well and she did. She got a 2340.” Parent of Junior, Saratoga High School
