SAT/ACT Preparation Critical to Success; Tutor Doctor State College Can Help

With more than 2 million students taking the SAT and ACT tests every year, competition to get into the best colleges and universities is higher than ever. The best way to help your child prepare for the big test is to hire a professional from Tutor Doctor State College.

The professional tutors from Tutor Doctor State College will not only help alleviate the stress that can come from trying to prepare for the SAT and/or ACT tests, but will also help build the skills and habits your teenager will need to succeed.

Tutor Doctor State College, a rapidly expanding one-on-one, in-home tutoring service is designed to help students from ages 4 to 96, offering the community and students a private, easy way to prepare for the SAT/ACT tests, assist in any of area of schoolwork (including college) or even help adults learn the basics of such things as email, the Internet and more. Local entrepreneur and owner of the local Tutor Doctor location Kevin Price has seen first-hand how valuable tutoring services can be for students looking to achieve higher scores on the ACT/SAT tests and how it can help get them into the first college or university of their choice. Higher ACT/SAT scores can also help students qualify for more scholarships.

“The ACT/SAT tests have been an important part of the college admissions process for years and now with more students fighting to get into the best colleges and universities around the country, preparing is more important than ever before,” said Kevin Price. “At Tutor Doctor, we help students of every ability maximize their potential when getting ready to take the big test. Preparing for the SAT/ACT tests can be a stressful time, but with our programs that are specifically designed to fit the needs of each individual, we can alleviate the stress and fear that comes with getting ready. Our proven programs have seen SAT scores increase by 200-300 points or more and ACT scores increase by 3-5 points or more.”

The rise of tutoring is becoming so pervasive that it is changing the face of education. Due to heightened competition in the classroom and governmental programs requiring schools identified as failing to provide tutoring to students, this $4 billion dollar per year industry, once an upper-class phenomenon, has extended to the middle class and beyond. In fact, tutoring has continued to grow at a record pace and in each of the past three years, consumer spending on tutoring has increased 7 percent to 10 percent.

“In today’s fast-paced world where dual incomes and high academic competition are the norm, one-on-one, in-home tutoring ensures that each student is being given the utmost attention and tools for success,” said Price. “It also gives our tutors the satisfaction of seeing their students’ progress and eliminates the parents from becoming a taxi service by not having to bring their children to a tutoring center. We come to you.”

In addition to servicing school-age and college students needing help in various subjects, Tutor Doctor State College has also proven valuable for the rapidly growing home-schooled population, for special needs students and for seniors wanting to learn technology skills.
