"I appreciate Tried & True Tutoring's no pressure style. They allowed me to make a decision that is best for our students, and our students love T & T's classes."

-Kathy H.
Counselor, AHS

Since 2011, Tried & True has been partnering with schools, districts, and community organizations to impact students’ college admissions success.  In-person or online, we offer valuable family presentations and student orientations regarding admissions testing, practice SAT and ACT test events, and of course a variety of instructional options for classroom and one-on-one tutoring to raise SAT and ACT scores. And since getting into college is not just about standardized tests, families rely on us for the academic assistance needed to do well in school, especially with the transition to distance learning.

Student Orientations

Let’s be honest: most students aren’t looking forward to the standardized testing required for colleges.  That’s why Tried & True created this presentation designed to introduce students to the structure and content of the PSAT, SAT, and ACT.  Our goal is to provide them comfort as to what to expect on test day.  We will review the most frequently tested content areas and question types while discussing the importance of their own personal timing and guessing strategies.  Students leave this presentation feeling like they received an edge on these important tests.

Practice Exams

Practice SAT and ACT tests have multiple benefits.  They identify which test would best represent a student to colleges, help test-takers understand the endurance necessary to complete the exams, can lead to detailed diagnostic reports highlighting students’ strengths and knowledge gaps, and much, much more.

Professional Development

 Over the years, schools have requested that we share our knowledge of the PSAT, SAT, and ACT with their faculty.  We can lead an engaging conversation tailored to the unique needs of your faculty on anything from an introduction to the tests’ content areas to a more in-depth dialogue how test preparation can be in alignment with their curriculum.  We can even loop in class test scores if we do a complete grade-wide practice exam for the most robust conversations.
