About Above Grade Level - Tutor in Scotch Plains, NJ
Serving Greater Union County
Above Grade Level provides in-home tutoring in Scotch Plains, NJ. We offer tutoring in all areas of elementary and secondary education. In-home tutoring subjects include math and science, reading and English, and PSAT, ACT and SAT Prep. Our Scotch Plains, NJ tutors use an expertly-developed proven curriculum to tutor students from Kindergarten to 12th grade. We also provide tutoring for college level courses as well as specialized tutoring programs for home-schooled students and tutoring programs for adults.
Our tutoring system begins with a standardized student evaluation. This evaluation was developed by professors at the University of California, Berkeley. The evaluation pinpoints the student's academic strengths and weaknesses. From the evaluation, we identify the specific areas a student needs tutoring help, and then design a custom learning plan.
The learning plan forms the foundation for our Above Grade Level tutoring and is administered, along with our proprietary curriculum, by our expert tutors. Our tutors can also instruct your child with lessons they are currently taking in school to ensure their success. Our Above Grade Level tutors will also mentor your child in developing effective study habit skills. These foundational study habit skills instill self-confidence to ensure your child performs well at school.
Above Grade Level Tutoring is proven to be effective in improving your student's grades and is 100% guaranteed to produce positive results for your child.
STRATEGIES TO EASE TEST ANXIETY
As a parent, how often have you been surprised when you thought your child would do well on a test at school only to discover afterward he/she did not receive a passing grade?
At Above Grade Level we often hear from parents their children suffer from test anxiety and they ask us to help their children with strategies to overcome it. Test anxiety is very common and can affect any student and leave parents perplexed and searching for answers. We’ve experienced firsthand the effects of test anxiety and used these strategies to help them:
- Provide the best study environment possible. This will include a clean, organized study area. Remove distractions like TV, iPods, and phones.
- Understand the learning methods which work best for your child. Would incorporating auditory, visual or Kinesthetic (hands-on) strategies increase their chances to retain the material required for the test?
Fabulous help for my daughter who struggled a lot with algebra. The tutor was a huge help and she is going to end the year on a high note.
My son was doing very bad in physics and english and the tutors both helped a lot. He is happier and his grades are much better this year with help from above grade level tutors.
Huge help! We used a tutor for math and english and my daughter's grades went up a lot. Strongly recommend.
My child was struggling with math for a long time, and homework time was especially frustrating. But thanks to Above Grade Level, my child's grade is now an A! We are so pleased with their tutoring program.
We used Above Grade Level for SAT tutoring and could not be happier. My son's scores improved by 320 points after 10 hours of tutoring which was amazing. The tutor saw his weaknesses and built them up and also helped a great deal with his confidence.
Above Grade Level has been a HUGE help for my daughter. She was struggling with both algebra 2 and analytical reading/writing. After a few short months (really after just a few sessions), she was much more confident and her grades improved dramatically. I would strongly recommend this company. Gail is patient and understands the needs of each student. Both tutors we are using (one for math, one for English) are fabulous!
Kevin and Kenny have both helped my two boys. We were able to get an extra 100 points on SAT with just a few hours of pointers.
We have been so happy with our Statistics Tutor, Julie. My daughter was struggling and stressed out every night with her homework. Julie is supportive and built her confidence! She will finish the year with a B+!
High Quality, knowledgable and friendly
My son worked with a great math tutor over the summer. He was very friendly, developed a good connection with him, was organized and explained concepts clearly. I feel that my son was well prepared to start the new school year. I will use this service again in the future if necessary.
Great Tutoring Service
Thank you for your service. Speaking just of my own situation, I have 2 sons, at different academic levels, with busy school, work and athletic schedules. I found Above Grade Level to be accommodating & professional dealing with these issues. Our tutor (Kevin) was very experienced and respected by both of my sons. I strongly recommend Above Grade Level to families with children in high school.
A great tutoring service
We have been very pleased with this tutoring service. Our son was deficient in Language Arts, and we have seen great improvement since he began tutoring. They are also very flexible-we asked for extra help with Math and they accommodated us right away-we saw great improvement there too. His tutor, Manny, tutors him in both subjects, as needed, and our son really enjoys working with him. All in all, a great resource for parents struggling to help their kids academically.
Great first experience with a Tutor service
This was the first time I have ever used a tutoring service. It was a very good experience. Gail was informative and shared all the options. She did not pressure us to do more than we felt we needed. She identified a tutor that fit the age and personality of my child. The tutor came twice a week and was on time every time. Gail would check in ever few weeks to ensure we were happy with the progress. The service was a bit more than our budget could sustain for a long period of time, but I understand that it is fair for the market. I will come back again in the future.
Our 11 year old daughter does well in all subjects except Math. No matter how hard she tried on her own, she struggled in class, with homework and on exams. In the new school year, we started using Kevin at Above Grade. Kevin comes to our home and is always on time. He is patient, experienced and our daughter looks forward to their weekly review. She is now more confident and expects to do well on her Math exams. We could not be happier with the result!
Above Grade Level has been absolutely amazing to work with. I have tried Mathnasium and other forms of tutoring, but with Above Grade LeveI I was able to see immediate results. My son needed to improve his SAT math scores and with at home tutoring he wrote the test beyond our expectation. I emailed the owner (Gail) the moment we received the scores, as her company is a huge part of my son's success. We absolutely love our tutor Sonali. She has a passion for teaching and her skills are extremely effective. I highly recommend Above Grade Level if you want to see great results!
Professional, warm, and caring
Since day one, we have all been thrilled with the wonderful, warm, and caring tutor my son has been working with. We feel very lucky to have found Above grade level. We highly recommend!!!! My son's attitude and confidence in his school has taken a 360. We could not be happier.
Made a huge difference!
My daughter was struggling with reading and writing. I was looking for a tutor but what I got with Above Grade Level was so much more than that. Not only did her reading and writing improve drastically - very quickly - but we have also seen a huge difference in her self confidence. She's like a different child now - sits down to do her homework with no arguments and her grades are much improved. We couldn't be happier!
Amazing calculus tutor!!
We made such a great decision when we chose Above Grade Level for summer calculus tutoring for my son. The tutor was excellent and I appreciated all your help and understanding along the way. It was a great experience and my son's summer school grades are proof of that! Thank you!
Above Grade Level is where you want to go, I love that the tutoring is in the privacy of your own home and is one on one. My son wasn't doing well and his self esteem was down. Once we started with Above Grade Level, he is once again a happy kid. He looks forward to his tutors coming every week and his grades have improved. The tutors have patience and are very kind. Above Grade Level goes above and beyond to help your child. I highly recommend Above Grade Level for your child's needs. I couldn't be happier but, more importantly my son's self esteem and his happiness are what matter and that's what we got from Above Grade Level with Gail Switsky.
Our Tutor Saved us
I was looking through my daughter's Grade Portal and was horrified to see she was tracking and "F" in Pre-Calculus with only 4 weeks left to the marking period. I called Gail at Above Grade Level on Tuesday and Ivan our Tutor began tutoring on Sunday. Charlotte finished the marking period with a "C+". We were so relieved and happy! We continued the tutoring and this marking period Charlotte achieved a "B+". I would recommend this company to everybody!!! Gail was professional and efficient and Ivan was inspiring and thorough. He not only helped her grade but also boosted her self esteem.
