“Exceptional tutoring service. I had the pleasure of working for Above-Grade Tutoring for over a year and can’t say enough good things about them. I worked with a total of four separate students over that year and the curriculum plan was always personalized and catered to that particular student. That was such a welcome surprise. It’s far too common for other tutoring companies and even schools to utilize one curriculum map to cover a wide range of students. However, Above-Grade Tutoring refuses to use this “copy & paste” curriculum method. AGT sees the benefit in differentiation and understands that all students learn differently. This is why they will never place all students on the same linear path for the way they have to learn. They get to know the student first and plan that student’s curriculum accordingly. There really isn’t a better tutoring company in all of Chester county and even PA. I’m very grateful and benefited greatly from my time at AGT and recommend them to any and all struggling students!”

“It’s been such a pleasure working with Karen as a Tutor at Above-Grade Tutoring. She is an amazing supervisor and goes the extra mile to assure comfort, guidance, and any assistance needed. There have been times when I needed flexibility, and she was open to my needs. As for tutoring, I love it! The children I’ve been paired with have shown so much growth and determination about learning. Above-Grade Tutoring was the best opportunity I was given and to this day I am still enthusiastic about it. Working for the company has opened all sorts of doors for me. And for those that are applying for a position, the pay was great 🙂 . One thing for sure, Karen will always take care of you.”

“I had the opportunity to work with Karen and AGT tutoring this past summer as well as a little bit over a year ago. Coming from the perspective of a professional tutor, I can truthfully say how caring and authentic Karen is as an individual and leader of AGT. She truly puts her heart and soul into her work and each of the clients she takes on. This was consistently evident to me in the vast and differentiated curriculum I always received as a tutor, in addition to the unique method given to me and followed by all my fellow tutors. Karen will stop at nothing to make sure your precious children, teens, and young adults succeed.

“If you know of anyone in the Chester County area that might be falling behind grade level in any subject or if you just want your student to be better prepared for what has become a cut-throat environment in higher education, I think you should heavily consider Karen and AGT.

“It is with fervent hopes that I will return to AGT after I receive my teaching certification and Master of Science in Education. I already miss it and warmly carry the memories created with my students through it.

“Two thumbs all the way up!”

~ Matthew M.

“I’ve taught from grade school through graduate school, and Above-Grade Tutoring is the best tutoring company that I have known so far. The company has all the hallmarks of a perfect place for any student wanting to achieve academic excellence, regardless of his or her current challenges. The staff is very professional, with amazing tutors passionate to help students. Contact Karen Davis, you will be glad you did.”

~ Maxwell O.

“As a first-time tutor, I had nothing less than an excellent experience under the supervision of Chester County Director, Karen. Without her guidance and patience, I wouldn’t have been able to fulfill my duties day-to-day. What’s so great about this company is that they work closely with the families to identify the students’ needs and the goals they want to achieve. Every student has an individualized lesson plan created personally for them. Above-Grade Tutoring provides all the materials to aid the tutor and student. They really care for their tutors and the development of their students. With daily check-ins and progress reports, the academic success of students is always in sight. Thank you, Above-Grade Tutoring and Karen, for giving me this opportunity to make a difference in a child’s academic career!”
