I guarantee that if you follow the program we lay out together in the Consultation Session, your son or daughter will improve, whether in grades or test score. While I don’t make concrete guarantees about the specific GPA improvement or percentage increase possible, my students’ ACT score improves 5.25 points on average and their grades typically improve a full letter grade if we’re doing academic coaching.
A note on grade and score improvements: Improvements are influenced by several factors, including the number of tutoring sessions conducted and the amount of time that the student spends doing independent preparation between sessions. Some factors are more difficult to quantify, such as how quickly the student learns or which sections of the material are specific strengths/weaknesses. These differences will affect the number of sessions needed. Also, “outside” factors such as test anxiety, attention/focus, and confidence issues can play a role in a student’s final grade.
