ACADEMICS


Just as top athletes need a performance plan to reach their peak potential, top students need academic support to perform their best intellectually. Whether it be specific subject tutoring, or standardized testing preparation we learn about your child and provide a tutor that is both a personal and academic fit. This personalized approach makes learning more engaging and leads to superior results. Throughout the process, we evaluate students both to measure their progress, and to gauge the effectiveness of our methods. Academic success is a partnership.

ADADEMIC PLAN

• Evaluation of learning styles, strengths and weaknesses, and goals; pairing with a tutor that is a strong fit for all of these areas.
• In addition to our own resources, our private teachers will follow the same textbooks you use in class to ensure that our tutoring sessions are targeted and effective.
• Unlike larger corporations, Bulldog Tutors provides truly customized tutoring sessions. Our tutors adapt to your learning goals and style before, during and after each tutoring session.
• Customized study plans to be utilized between sessions
• After each session, your tutor will provide updates on your progress so that parents and students can keep track of improvement.

WHY BULLDOG?

We have a history of producing top scorers on the SAT. Our tutors are not schoolteachers who have never taken or are many years out from having taken the SAT themselves, but are high-performing individuals who have rigorously discerned the best and most effective methodologies for the SAT. The result: 1-on-1 SAT tutoring with our top SAT tutors allows for an accelerated score increase from the average to above average range, but more remarkably, students who are high performing are able to easily break through plateaus between the 95th-99th percentile (as determined by the College Board).
