After calling or emailing us, your child is assigned a First Class Prep tutor. All tutoring sessions are one hour and take place at either FCP offices or a location convenient for both the student and tutor. For academic tutoring, our tutors can meet with your child on a weekly basis to build and strengthen important skills, develop effective study habits and improve overall coursework and grades.
SAT, ACT, SAT II, SSAT TUTORING
The initial session is used to evaluate a student’s strengths and weaknesses and to establish a rapport between tutor and student. Based on this initial session, we put together a timeline and personalized game-plan based on the student’s strengths and weaknesses, preferences and schedule, and individual scoring goals. We play a significant role in helping students and parents 1) understand the testing process, 2) set goals based on student’s scoring potential and college aspirations, and 3) develop a timeline and game-plan for reaching those goals.
Most students meet with their First Class Prep tutor once per week in the months leading up to their SAT and ACT tests. Importantly, students also periodically take full-length timed practice tests to build endurance, measure progress and prepare for the actual testing experience. The practice tests take place on weekends (usually Sunday mornings). The days and times for tutoring sessions are determined by the tutor and student, depending on the student’s schedule and preferences.
DO YOU NEED OR WANT ADDITIONAL SESSIONS?
For students who need or prefer additional time per session, or more than one session per week, we are happy to provide a discount.
NO LONG-TERM CONTRACTS—JUST RESULTS!
We pride ourselves on the fact that we do not lock parents into long-term contracts. We want students and parents to sign up with us (and refer us to friends and family) because you are absolutely thrilled with our level of expertise, support and results…and not because you’re financially obligated due to signing your name to a long-term contract. We want our RESULTS to be the reason you sign up with us and stay with us.
