Academic Tutoring – Grades 9-12

Stressed Asian Female Student

"I can honestly say that my experiences with each of my tutors was nothing short of spectacular. They are not only wonderful tutors, they are all committed, understanding, friendly people. During my last-minute, panicked cram sessions that would occasionally run as late as 1:00am, my tutors did whatever it took to keep my attention and keep my work rate up (sometimes that meant feeding me chocolate periodically). I would recommend Great Expectations to absolutely anyone because I am confident that their tutors are capable of helping any student through whatever academic challenges may arise.”

If you go to an Information Session at any top tier university, you are likely to hear some visiting high school student ask, “Is it better to get a B in an AP class or an A in a regular class?” Almost without fail, the Admissions representative’s response will be, “It’s better to get an A in an AP class.”

While standardized tests, extracurricular activities, and admissions essays play influential roles in college admissions, more than 50% of a college’s decision still comes down to a student’s transcript. Admissions officers not only look at your GPA, but also at the rigor of your coursework — did you challenge yourself at every turn? Taking Honors or AP classes demonstrates to colleges that you are eager to challenge yourself and are not afraid of college-level material or workloads. Remember, in their eyes, doing well in standard high school-level classes doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be ready for the challenge and pace of college-level courses; taking and excelling in advanced classes is the best way to prove that you are.

Don’t wait until you’ve dug yourself a hole that you can’t get out of before deciding to get help. Our tutors will not only help you gain a deeper understanding of the material presented at school, but they will also teach you effective study habits and organizational skills while preparing you for upcoming assignments and tests.

If you feel like your struggles extend beyond a particular subject or teacher, consider meeting with a Study Skills Counselor. High achieving students are often unknowingly frustrated by a relative weakness in an underlying learning skill such as focus, working memory or processing speed. Our Study Skills Counselors can help you to identify the root of your learning struggles and identify a way forward. For more information, please visit our Study Skills page.
