Mission Statement for the Program

  • You will receive personal private tutoring at an affordable price. Students are instructed one on one in a comfortable venue rather than a seminar room with other students with different needs and objectives.
  • Your tutor is qualified to instruct you in preparation for all of the components of both the SAT and ACT at one time and in one location. You will be able to mix and match the components of the two testing programs you need to prepare for. And, you can schedule the sessions whenever you want.

The Program Structure

  • Private tutoring sessions are provided for the verbal and math components of the PSAT, SAT and ACT including all components of the AC. Preparation fothe required essay for the SAT and the optional essay for the ACT is included.
  • For a total of ten sessions students may select sessions for each component – verbal and math – or combine the two to meet individual needs.  We find students often want to schedule more sessions for one component than the other, thus tailoring the program to individual needs diagnosed by the tutor.
  • Students may want to schedule more sessions than the ten for the complete program. Individual sessions may be scheduled on a per session basis.Fee Structure:  Regarding the fee structure for the program contact James Heryer through our contact form in the sidebar.
