New:  Free SAT / ACT Diagnostic

Click here to enroll for the June 13 free SAT / ACT diagnostic service

Nth Degree Tutoring is now offering a free SAT / ACT diagnostic service on a few select dates.  The first one will be Wednesday, June 13, 2018, 10 am – 1 pm.  Enroll at the appointment calendar (see menu bar above).  The test will consist of 1/4 of an SAT and 1/4 of an ACT (except essays) and scores will be available that day.  You will immediately know if you have an advantage on one test over the other.

After the initial diagnostic, SAT / ACT lessons are booked hourly.  There is no SAT or ACT course on the calendar because it will be tailored to your hours!  Call to inquire.  Recent success stories include an 800 on the SAT Math 2 Subject Test and a student who brought her ACT score from 23 to 28 and was accepted to Harvard.

I recommend focusing on SAT or ACT in the summer, when school is not a distraction.  In the summer, it is best to meet 2 – 4 hours / week, and I will assign homework.  I do not assign SAT / ACT homework during the school year, because homework usually keeps students very busy and they should be focusing on that.

Yep, we’ll work on essays too.

I do not offer group lessons for the SAT or ACT.  I know from experience (and I’m sure you do too) that groups of high school students get talkative and lose focus, and the atmosphere soon deteriorates.  I insist that my office is always distraction-free, so I only work with high school students one or two at a time.  If you and one friend are interested in SAT / ACT lessons, I will reduce your rates by 25%.
