At A+ Tutoring Test Preparation we realize not all students come to us in a “super” state.

Some are frustrated, some have been stunted in their growth, have seen academic and even personal challenges, and may really need a change in their lives.

Mr. Michael DiSalvo, in his background in psychology and critical thinking, is uniquely equipped to bring out what is “super” in a wide variety of students.

This is why he has seen some students start at the 5th percentile on the ACT (i.e. an 8) and end up in the 50th percentile (i.e. a 23), and others start with a 24 and end up with a 33.

Whether you are searching for a coach to motivate an intelligent child, to find an obstacle in a frustrated student, or be the spark in a high achiever to help that prodigy stay on track, A+ Tutoring Test Preparation of Cincinnati, OH, can help you discover the right path to accomplish the mission.
