A HIGHER SCORE
The most important thing to know about test preparation is that excelling on an exam takes more than just knowing the material, just like excelling at public speaking takes more than just knowing the right words.
Alongside knowing all the material, standardized tests and AP exams require test-taking strategies, time management skills, organization, and emotional strength. Our process goes beyond teaching the subject matter to teach students all the skills necessary to master the test.
The best part about our process is that all of our tutoring is one-on-one. This approach eliminates the social pressures that often hold students back from admitting confusion or difficulty. Each student will receive the attention and guidance needed to succeed come test day.
At Homework Helpers, a higher score is within reach!
Students We've Worked With
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
You've probably seen it. Slogans like, "Raise your score 500 points...GUARANTEED!" Of course we're exaggerating, but the reality is that many people fall for these false promises only to be disappointed later on. Why? Because unless that company is taking the test for the student, there's absolutely no way to make such a guarantee.
When parents ask about our "Guarantee Policy," our answer is very simple and transparent.

Our Test Preparation Process
The Steps Necessary for Success.
The test prep process starts with a benchmark practice assessment(s). This practice assessment is a realistic, retired released test (SAT/ACT) or a test that closely aligns with whichever test your student wants to prepare for.
Score & Analyze
This assessment is hand-scored by a member of our team, usually the same day. During this time, we'll analyze the students' performance, identifying question types and concepts that will be reviewed once sessions begin.
Review & Plan
Our staff member will sit with each student and family to review the results, answer questions and make a customized plan. The plan will include the frequency and focus of the sessions and what the goal score should be.
Throughout the test preparation process- every 2-3 weeks- students are encouraged to sit for the full length test as a way of measuring progress and reevaluating, if necessary, the students plan of action.
The Structure of Our Sessions Explained
Let's get down to work! During the first hour, the student and tutor will cover incorrect questions from the benchmark practice test. The tutor will identify concepts to review, teach strategy and incorporate testing and time management techniques.
Time to measure progress! Now that the student has spent the first hour learning, discussing strategy and gaining more confidence, it's now time to put that knowledge to use. Students will test in the area they just reviewed. Once completed, the test is scored and the student is given feedback on their results. This test will be reviewed during the next session.
Our college planning team will create an action plan based on the services that are agreed upon in the initial meeting. All this will be communicated to the parent and student, including setting goals and deadlines to have objectives achieved.
