DESCRIPTION

We are currently meeting with students either in-person and outdoors or via Zoom. On Zoom, tutors are able to use a whiteboard function, screen share, annotate on shared documents for live instruction, and more. We tutor the HSPT, the ISEE, the SSAT, the SAT, the ACT, and most academic subjects in elementary, middle, and high school.

For HSPT tutoring, we are thrilled to announce the completion of Accepted: The Ultimate Guide to Success on the HSPT – an interactive workbook designed to prepare students for the HSPT online and in-person. This includes a licensed membership to IXL through Archimedes so that students can practice foundational skills if needed.

When we’re working with students on their homework from another teacher’s curriculum, we do our very best to stay consistent with how the material is being taught in the classroom. Always, we customize our style and approach to the specific student we’re working with based on his or her preferred learning methods and modalities. Most of our sessions are one-on-one; group sessions are especially popular around finals and AP exams.

Subject-based tutoring:

When we’re working with students on their homework from another teacher’s curriculum, we do our very best to stay consistent with how the material is being taught in the classroom. Always, we customize our style and approach to the specific student we’re working with based on his or her preferred learning methods and modalities. Most of our sessions are one-on-one; group sessions are especially popular around finals and AP exams.

HSPT prep:

We are thrilled to announce the completion of Accepted: The Ultimate Guide to Success on the HSPT – an interactive textbook designed to prepare students for the HSPT online and in-person. This includes a licensed membership to IXL through Archimedes so that students can drill foundational skills, if needed.

In HSPT tutoring sessions, students learn dozens of frequently-appearing test vocabulary words, master key grammatical concepts, memorize the math that needs to be memorized (percent to fraction equivalencies, number of pints in a gallon etc.), and internalize, early on, the essential rules of the standardized-test-taking game.

ISEE prep:

In ISEE tutoring sessions, tutors break down the question types in each section and teach the test taking strategies and techniques that go with them. Students learn dozens of frequently-appearing test vocabulary words, practice sentence completion strategies, break down the quantitative comparison section (question types most students have never seen), build reading comprehension skills, learn time management for the essay portion and more.

SSAT prep:

In SSAT tutoring sessions, tutors break down the question types in each section and teach the test taking strategies and techniques that go with them. Students learn the guessing strategy unique to the SSAT, dozens of frequently-appearing test vocabulary words, practice analogy strategies, break down both quantitative sections, build reading comprehension skills, learn time management for the essay portion and more.

SAT/ACT prep:

Our SAT/ACT prep focuses on breaking down the question types in each section and learning the test taking strategies and techniques that go with them. Students will practice active reading, usage/mechanics, rhetorical skills, synthesis, expression of ideas and standard English conventions for the Reading and Writing sections.

Students will practice algebra, advanced mathematics, problem solving, and data analysis for the Math section. ACT students will review and practice techniques for the data analysis required in the Science section.

Additionally, tutors will not only give students insider tools to approach the essay writing process, but make the experience creative and exploratory.

Since the SAT and ACT are content-based exams, tutors will help students set up comprehensive study plans, as we see the best results when students make a commitment to completing practice problems and other homework outside of tutoring sessions.

FAQ: 

We offer 1 hour, 1.5 hours, and 2 hour long sessions. Please note, all test-prep sessions are 1.5 hours long.

If you are in the greater Los Angeles area, we are available to come to your home. Currently, most in-person sessions are being held outdoors due to COVID-19. Otherwise, we work with students nationwide and sessions are held remotely via Zoom.

Testimonials:

We had our twins tutor and train with Archimedes for their HSPT test. My son will be attending St. Francis and my daughter FSHA this coming school year.

We had heard from everyone around us that we had to use Archimedes and when we did we knew exactly why. They are extremely professional and know what they are doing. It was a great experience for both of our children.

They each had a different tutor that worked with their specific needs. They both did excellent on their tests and got into all the schools they applied for. If we had to go back and do it again we definitely would use Archimedes again. We actually will look into them when our twins need help in the future.
