Our tutors' focus is to assist students in meeting their educational goals while building confidence and a positive attitude toward school and the classroom setting. The one to one student to tutor relationship allows us to build a trusting bond with those we tutor. The result is a student who is academically accomplished as well as confident.

#TestPrep

We focus on providing students with the tricks and strategies necessary for each individual test (ACT, SAT, PSAT, ISEE, GRE, and GED), taking into account the student's own strengths and weaknesses.

Since the program is individualized to each student's needs, there is no set number of sessions. The number of sessions and time necessary to prep for the test is determined by many factors: target date, current test score (if applicable), goal scores, and student availability.

#Enrichment

Enrichment services go above and beyond what is offered in the classroom. Support is offered for organizational and study/test-taking skills. We also offer concept reinforcement, remediation, and/or reteaching. Individualized sessions are designed to match your child's learning style and motivation.

Summer Camps

Academic Solutions has opened registration for our ISEE summer camps! Expose your 8th grader to strategies to help him or her achieve on the ISEE. We have a camp that introduces students to the format of the test and offers them section specific strategies to help answer many of the question types they will see on the test. Monday through Thursday will be spent going over the individual sections of the test and culminates in a practice test on Friday.

We are also currently offering camps that review strategies and formatting on the ACT and SAT individually. Do not know which test to take? We offer an ACT vs. SAT camp that looks into both tests. Do you have a senior who needs a little help with his or her college essays? Take a look at our College Essay Camp.

ACT vs. SAT

This camp compares the two admissions tests. Not sure which test is better for you? This is the camp to sign up for. Each day we highlight the similarities of both tests and showcase the strategies and tricks that are applicable to both tests.

Additionally, we help students navigate the differences and how to use the individual formats to their advantage. On Friday, we offer a practice test that incorporates question styles from each test.

In the two-hour group sessions, senior high school students will

Review the differences between the Common Application and Apply Texas.
