    expand_more

    The earlier the better! When students come to us right before it is time to apply to college, there is only so much we can do. We can certainly help these students with score improvements and craft as compelling an application as possible, but we are given experiences and data points that cannot be altered.

    When students come to us early in their educational careers, we pair them with a counselor to help them develop as applicants, students, and people early on. We help students strategize early, build their profiles, and stand out from their peers. We help students explore and develop their academic interests, engage in unique and meaningful extracurricular activities, strengthen their personal qualities and leadership skills, and ultimately, position them to get into the best schools possible.

    It takes A LOT of hard work, strategy, determination, and self-reflection to get into the school of your dreams. At AP Guru, we are here, every step of the way, to help you get there.

  • Do test prep courses work?
    expand_more

    Yes! Standardized tests focus on a small, unique set of skills and topics. By knowing exactly what types of questions are on the test, a student gains a distinct advantage. Furthermore, a great tutoring company can build on this advantage by providing a highly individualized learning experience and a wealth of fantastic strategies for all types of students.  We have the evidence from thousands of students across 10+ years that great improvement is possible for nearly everyone.

  • Do you only help students who want to go to top schools?
    expand_more

    No. We know that each student is different and has unique goals and aspirations. Our focus is to help each student excel in the tests and exams they are preparing towards.

  • What kind of results should I expect?
    expand_more

    In terms of academic scores, for students not already at the top of the range, we typically want to see at least a 20 percentile rank improvement (the actual raw score this translates to varies across the scale). Going from the 50th to 70th percentile or from the 70th to 90th typically opens up a whole new range of schools for students.
