On Monday afternoon, a parent from New York City called Biltmore Tutoring because she had “heard” that we had successfully defended four students whose scores were invalidated by the College Board.
We had once published an article giving parents advice on what to do if their students’ scores were challenged, because it’s happened to us a few times.[Read more…]
One-Week Boot Camp Classes are Affordable and Highly Effective!
At Biltmore Tutoring, we do lots of private tutoring and test prep. However, we have also had great success with our small group SAT and ACT test prep classes (in fact, some of our largest score increases came from class students, and especially ones who combined a class with a few private lessons to tune up with material that they needed a little one-on-one help with).
Biltmore Tutoring’s SAT and ACT test prep ‘boot camps’, which have just been announced for the summer of 2019, are affordable, effective, and allow students to prepare for the exam over a one-week block during the summer. These classes will prepare students for the tests which will take place in the late summer and fall. All books, practice materials, access to all of our incredibly effective test prep strategies, master’s degree instruction, the use of our student response system, and two free practice tests are included!
Class dates for the summer ‘boot camp’ style classes are listed below.[Read more…]
Have you ever tried to help your son or daughter with their homework or a school project? In elementary school it’s pretty easy, but once your child enters middle school or high school, it starts getting a lot harder.

And getting help from a teacher isn’t usually a recipe for success, either.
So what are the benefits and advantages of hiring a private tutor? First, they aren’t your child’s teacher and they aren’t their parent, either. Private tutoring offers a fresh perspective and your child knows that their tutor is there to help.
