Here are the steps we’ll take to get your child extraordinary results – fast:

Step 1

Comprehensive Diagnostic Skill Assessment

Students take a free comprehensive diagnostic skill assessment to identify their skill levels. They take this assessment online, right from home.

Step 2

Personal Consultation 

We meet with the student and their family in their home for a free personal consultation to go over the assessment and identify the student’s goals.

Step 3

Personalized Curriculum

We custom-create a personalized curriculum that addresses the student’s skill gaps, as well as accelerates them where their skills are strong. No two students have the same curriculum! We always align tutoring to the topics the student is studying in school. Our program combines three areas of academic need: remediation of skill gaps; help with current school assignments; and a boost ahead in areas where students demonstrate readiness.

Step 4

Perfectly Matched Tutor

We carefully pair each student with a perfectly matched tutor, considering both skill levels and personality.

“ABOVE-GRADE TUTORING is amazing! I could not be more thankful for the wonderful service they provide. My son was really struggling with school. With Above Grade Level’s tutoring services, I’m happy to say my son is getting A’s. Our tutor comes prepared for every session and diligently works with our son to make sure he understands all the materials. You can tell that she really cares, which makes all the difference. From the bottom of my heart, thank you ABOVE-GRADE TUTORING!!”

Chester Springs

Fantastic Results! We’re very pleased with our tutor and with your program. The results have been fantastic! We needed a certified Reading Specialist, and you sent a perfect match for our 2nd grade daughter. She has made 6 months’ progress in just 19 hours of tutoring! The best part is she loves tutoring and is excited to see her tutor!”

“My daughter was struggling with math and feeling very discouraged. Her tutor showed her math from a completely new perspective, at a pace that was comfortable for her. After tutoring, she scored 300 points higher on her SAT! We love our tutor and highly recommend Above-Grade Tutoring for SAT prep!”
