The A+ Approach
A+ began with just one student over 30 years ago! His success opened the door for many others to find similar success. The student is at the center of what we do at A+. We combine exceptionally caring and effective educators with targeted academic support.
The result is SUCCESS!
• Test Prep
• Skill Improvement
• Course and Homework Support
• In All Subject Areas
Reading Improvement: The A+ Way
Welcome to A+ Tutoring's amazing reading success stories! Hallie was a first grader, struggling with reading. Our Reading Specialist identified specific skills Hallie needed to review, and most importantly, the ways she learned best. An A+ plan was designed, Hallie began meeting with her tutor, and in a few short weeks, her confidence and reading skills began to soar!
The FCAT reading assessment challenges students at the elementary, middle, and high school level. Craig is another A+ success story! As an SLD student, he had little hope of passing the Reading FCAT. Meeting with his tutor, one on one, made all the difference! Craig's reading scores more than doubled after tutoring at A+. His last FCAT testing put him over the top! Fantastic job, Craig!!
Reading also challenges college prep, home school, and prospective nursing students! A+ offers students the chance to prepare and excel on their FCAT, PSAT, SAT, ACT and TEAS tests. With one on one support and guidance on selected practice, verbal test scores improve significantly, as students build skills and strategies for success.
Each student has an individualized reading improvement plan including:
• Targeted Skills Review
• Specific Practice that coordinates schoolwork, test preparation, and strategies for success.
Math Improvement: The A+ Way
Math can be a true challenge! The A+ approach makes a difference for…
• Elementary and Middle School Math
• Algebra I & II
• Calculus • Analysis of Functions
• Math for College Readiness
• Intermediate College Algebra
• College Algebra
• Finite Math
• College Trigonometry
• College Calculus
Our A+ math tutors encourage and build skills every step of the way. Students find our patient and positive, coordinated approach essential in the road to math success. Individual assessments are often utilized to provide a valuable picture of a student's skills needing to be targeted for review. The review provides the foundation, while direct practice using the student's current curriculum, and test preparation bring struggling students A+ improvement!
Science Improvement: The A+ Way
Science is confusing for many students. A+ students find success every step of the way!
• Earth Science
• Physical Science
• Anatomy & Physiology
• Micro Biology
We offer standard, honors, AP and IB, one on one, tutoring for every science student. Chemistry and Physics students often find these sciences a "foreign" language, and both have a strong math component which compounds the challenge for many students. Our patient tutors and encouraging skill approach builds mastery, which is the key to success.
A+ Chemistry, Physics, and Biology tutors guide, review and explain in the way each student learns best. Practice, which includes key terms, concepts, and formulas, is designed for student success. An integrated approach using the student's text, notes, and study materials is enhanced with targeted review provided by his or her tutor. A suggested study plan with strategies to increase mastery is presented for use between sessions.
Test Prep: The A+ way can make ALL the difference!
• EOC • PERT
• GED • ASVAB
High school often does not truly prepare students for the FCAT, PSAT, SAT, and ACT. The FCAT is required for a standard high school diploma. The SAT, and ACT are nationally recognized tests to measure college readiness and are required by most colleges for entrance.
The A+ success approach assists students who have never attempted one of the challenging exams, as well as those who wish to improve their score. We identify verbal and quantitative skill strengths or weaknesses and create an individual plan for skill and score enhancement. Our tutors utilize a strategic approach to aid mastery. In addition, SAT students are provided individualized essay writing practice. With a strong skill based approach, test strategy enhancement, and one on one tutoring, we build student success!
Florida implemented End of Course (EOC) Exams in Algebra 1, Geometry, Biology, and U. S. History, for a student to receive credit in the corresponding class. EOC results have shown significant gaps between student learning and skill mastery. Simply put, many students attend classes and pass tests but never really master material. We provide EOC review and improved skill mastery!
The ASVAB is required for induction in the armed services: Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force or Coast Guard. We prepare applicants for both the reading and math sections of this test. With our A+ Approach, the goal is true mastery of both verbal and quantitative skills on the ASVAB.
The PERT is a college level assessment tool that many schools utilize to measure a student's level of mastery. PERT preparation and practice is available with intensive skill enhancement and our A+ strategic approach.
Prospective nursing students are required to pass the TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills), a multiple choice test, covering English, math, science and reading. TEAS practice and prep can make all the difference in how students perform on this test.
The ISEE is utilized by private schools to determine if a prospective student meets entrance standards. This is a multiple choice test which covers basic to advanced reading, math, and writing skills. The ISEE is a timed test, which challenges many students who do not take time to prepare. Our A+ Approach provides assessment and practice for every part of the test.
We also prepare students for success on the General Educational Development (GED), and Full Sail Entrance Exams.
Study Skills: The A+ Way
Many students are challenged by organization, test prep, and study skills. At A+ Tutoring of Central Florida, we approach each student on an individual basis. At the outset, a student's needs are evaluated and a program is planned specifically to address the identified needs. Some students need more assistance with organization and preparation for tests, while other students are challenged by the actual study skills of note taking, prioritizing, outlining, and time management. The areas each student needs to master becomes the focus of his or her tutoring sessions and our patient tutors encourage every step of the way.
Home School Support: The A+ Way
We offer curriculum support for all elementary, middle and high school subjects. Some students attend tutoring only one or two hours weekly, while others attend many hours weekly to complete a particular curriculum, a parent directed course of study, or a Florida Virtual School (FLVS) course. Our approach is an individual one, so we provide effective support to help your student succeed, build skills, and meet his or her educational goals. Students immediately feel successful and, as a result, both skills and confidence soar!
Educational testing is also available to determine your student’s specific skill needs or to fulfill county requirements for annual student evaluation and record of student progress. Call us to discuss your student and how we can work together to help your student succeed. We would be glad to put you in touch with other parents whose students we have successfully assisted!
