Road to College - Overview
SAT & ACT Tutoring
While these standardized tests are but one part of the application process, doing well on either, or both, will greatly enhance your chances of acceptance by the college of your choice. Regardless of the weight placed on scores by colleges for admission, they are still important for merit/academic scholarships and financial aid. Like anything, practice makes better…and SAT & ACT testing is NO DIFFERENT! Learning test strategies, understanding how the test-makers design questions (what they are asking for), and building self-confidence are the keys to mastery.
New England Tutors offers one-on-one and small group test preparation to best prepare your student for the test(s).
College Essay Writing Assistance
The college essay “speaks” to the Admissions counselor. Depending on the school, thousands of applications are submitted — but what MAKES YOU DIFFERENT is what matters! SAT scores, G.P.A.’s, extracurricular activities may be equal for many applicants. The college essay is about you personally, in your own words. An outstanding essay is the element that could get you noticed, and ultimately accepted!
College Application Assistance
From college selection, essay assistance, FASFA form help, to interview preparation and even joining you on college tours- New England Tutors is with you every step of the way.
