How our test prep works
DETERMINE BASELINE & GOALS
First we establish your baseline score, either through a prior test or a new practice test. We’ll also discuss your admissions plan and timeline.
ESTABLISH A PLAN AND START PREPARING
Next, we’ll create a plan and your tutor will implement it with you. Sessions will occur regularly (with the same tutor) that take the stress out of the prep process while boosting your score.
MAKE SURE YOU’RE ON TRACK:
Once every few weeks we will reevaluate your progress and refine the study plan and tutoring to improve weak areas.
A Typical Test Prep session
Your tutor will review any prior “homework” with you, noting any errors so you recognize and avoid them in the future.
Your tutor will teach you the academic concepts covered by the exam. These might include math, science, reading comprehension, grammar, writing, etc.
It’s not enough to just learn content. Successful students understand how to recognize “patterns” in questions and avoid getting tricked.
You’ll learn how to combine content and strategy to tackle any question on the exam.
Your tutor will assign specific sections of the exam based on your session, and full-length exams (less often) to make you familiar with the test-taking environment.

Common Challenges with the AP
Since it needs more time and requires a deeper knowledge of the subject, the Advanced Placement Program is typically more complex than standard exams. Students may choose tests from a variety of dimensions, each with its own set of challenges. Commonly, students struggle with preparation because they are not motivated and consistent with their studies during the year. Most exams last 2-3 hours and not being adequately prepared can result in unfavorable outcomes. At TutorNerds, we aim to match students with their ideal tutor match for them to get the most out of their learning experience. Our teachers will re-teach the curriculum, provide helpful learning tips, and highlight the most important do's and don'ts.
How to get the best AP tutor near you
With young students who take AP, it's important to partner with a tutor who can explain these concepts in a way students can understand. The tutor needs to know the material, but also has to have experience working with young students in particular. It all comes down to experience: Has the tutor produced good results with AP students before. That's why students get results from TutorNerd: Our tutors make difficult concepts easy to understand (check out all our five-star reviews). The way we ensure the success of our students is that we individually hire our AP tutors. That's why we guarantee our services: If you don't love your AP tutor, you don't pay.
