The ACT Test Prep Course Helping Students to the Top 1% in Mason,

Loveland and West Chester, OH.

A+ Tutoring & Test Preparation has PSATSAT and ACT Prep Cincinnati courses for two types of students. First, for the student who has “fallen behind.” Whether it be because of a learning disability or even laziness, some students find they need to play “catch up.” Our SAT, PSAT, and ACT preparation course provides help for Cincinnati students who have fallen behind. Other students are quite gifted, but need someone to show them how to gain the competitive edge that will keep them ahead. They may not be good test-takers, may have missed out on perfecting a skill that they never mastered, or, yes, may be hampered by lack of motivation.

Our SAT, PSAT, and ACT preparation help provides for gifted students who want to make their mark. There is a third type of student: the nervous one. Test anxiety affects both advanced students and those who need to work on remedial skills. A+ Tutoring also offers help in overcoming test anxiety to help maximize potential. It may seem strange that similar techniques often can solve different problems, but this can only be done with a guide who can show the way…

“Melior est enim sapientia cunctis pretiossisimis.” Proverbs 8:11

In Latin, we learn the valuable words, “Wisdom is indeed better…than all the most precious things put together.” So what is wisdom? Some call it a natural part of learning. Some say it is eternal. Yet, hopefully all would agree that to understand the principles of things, to get a bigger picture of learning and of life, is something that cannot be valued enough.

Very few students deal with the PSAT, SAT, and ACT tests as just some walk in the park. There are even obstacles that can happen on the way to test day: sickness, boredom, changing schools, social pressures, and fear. But with a systematized, customized program, starting with a laser-focused diagnostic test, the end can be much more reachable than initially thought. Test preparation, or even studying in general, is about a process and a system to get to the right answer. Whether it be study habits in math and reading, critical thinking skills, programs to treat test anxiety, or even speed reading, we believe a good tutor can make a great difference in the life of a student with the pupil’s cooperation preparing for the ACT and SAT tests.

We provide mostly in-home tutoring in the Tri-State area in Southwest Ohio, including Greater Cincinnati, West Chester, Loveland, Mason, Milford, Monroe, and even parts of Dayton, though now we do have an office for test prep near the Tri-County Mall in Cincinnati where we also prep students for the ACT and SAT.

Mr Disalvo’s students have been able to use his techniques to help students get perfect scores, with as much as a 15 point increase on the ACT with 100s of points increased on the SAT. If you’d like a free consultation on the potential of your child, just call 5139399033.

ACT Announces Test Changes in 2015 to Rival Collegeboard's

The ACT corporation has announced some changes to its test to happen in 2015, which many believe to be a retort to the recent drastic changes announced by College Board to their PSAT and SAT. The College Board Corporation has declined comment as to the significance of their own changes, though SAT and ACT test prep is still working well with the A+ techniques, even to the 99th percentile, right here in Cincinnati.

Why They Chose A+ Tutoring For Test Prep

Real ACT Preparation Books are Crucial for ACT Prep Class in Cincinnati, Mason, Loveland and West Chester

There is currently about a 70% similarity between the SAT and ACT exams. This is why it often makes sense to give both tests a try and see which test is right for your child.  Interestingly enough, students who have tutored with us for the SAT test and have scored even about the 90th percentile or greater have excelled even more with the ACT with just a couple of sessions of ACT prep. In other words, the SAT course provides a solid foundation for the ACT, as it teaches critical thinking skills and forces students to be careful.

If students are solid with content on the ACT:  mainly  English grammar rules, math formulas through trigonometry or pre-Calculus, and the fundamental concepts of science through physics and chemistry, they can do even better preparing for the ACT test.
