SAT Prep Naples and ACT Prep Naples – This college prep instruction is offered in either a One-to-One, or small group setting. Students work under the tutelage of our highly trained staff. The objective of A+ Skills SAT™ & ACT® Prep™ is to increase each student’s emotional confidence and SAT™ and/or their ACT® scores significantly. That said, it must be understood that achieving this goal takes student dedication to the SAT™/ACT® test preparation process including attendance at all scheduled sessions as well as timely completion of all homework assignments.  Also, we suggest that students practice, practice and more practice so that they become easily comfortable with the instructions and formats, etc.

We recommend that each student take an individualized SAT™ or ACT® diagnostic evaluation which we provide and which is based on real SAT™ and ACT® practice tests. The purpose of the diagnostic is to focus student efforts to the weaker areas while cutting down the time spent on the stronger areas.

Also included in our training will be the very important general and specific problem and test taking strategies to maximize each student’s results. Students will learn and practice alternative methods to solve certain types of questions and will practice self-pacing for the lengthy exams.

A primary benefit of the One-to One and Tutoring Buddies test preparation approach is to focus on the student’s weaker areas which when combined with the use of the diagnostic test is quite powerful as many of our past students have shown. Take a look at the MANY happy testimonials!
