The Inspirica PREMIER ONE-ON-ONE Process
Schedule a Free Consultation
Test selection is an essential but far too often overlooked part of the admissions process. Since the early 2000s, colleges and universities across the United States have treated the ACT and the SAT as interchangeable options, leaving each student free to take the test that best fits his or her testing style. When the College Board redesigned the SAT in early 2016, the need to choose the right test became even more acute as the differences between the tests became even more significant.
Unfortunately, some high schools do a poor job of explaining these differences to their students, and in some cases they don’t even make the attempt at all. To fill that gap, our team of test experts developed the Agnostic Diagnostic, a proprietary tool that simulates all the sections of both the ACT and SAT in a single test session. Our team reviews each student’s results and then crafts a personalized report that includes starting score ranges and an individualized testing recommendation. We will review this report with you at no charge during a follow-up consultation.
Once the test has been selected and the contours of the program have been outlined, we’ll get to work matching you with one of our world-class tutors. This part of the process usually takes about 24 hours, and once the match has been made we’ll introduce you to your tutor by email so that your program can get underway.
Our tutors are the very best at what they do, and each has been through an extensive process of training and mentoring from their first day on the job. We believe so deeply in the power of one-on-one tutoring, in fact, that we make one-on-one mentoring a part of each tutor’s regular responsibilities, no matter how long they’ve been with the company. That’s why no matter which member of our team we match you to, you can rest easy knowing that your program is being guided by one of the best tutors in the world.
Once you’ve been introduced to your tutor and scheduled your first session, we will send you a package of tutoring materials. This package includes both proprietary and third-party materials selected by our team of test experts, and every item we include has been chosen by them as the best available tool for the job. We also give each student access to our digital curricula, adaptive testing platform, and a library of on-demand videos.
Because no two students and tutoring programs are the same, and because the needs of each student often change as the program evolves, we provide our tutors with access to a wealth of digital materials via the Inspirica Cloud. Throughout each program, our tutors will use that system to supplement the materials provided at the start of the program, allowing them to carefully target each student’s individual strengths and weaknesses.
Last but certainly not least, each student will also have access to a suite of official tests. These tests will be assigned by the tutor at regular intervals throughout the program as both full-length practice tests and homework assignments. We will make certain that you practice how you play and play how you practice, putting you in the best possible position to succeed on test day.
Tutors meet with their students every week for two hours, and programs typically last three to four months, bringing the total number of tutoring hours in a typical program to somewhere between 25 and 30 hours. Each session builds on the last and is tailored to the individual performance of each student every week, so no two programs are ever exactly alike. Sessions are billed at $250/hour, and you are billed in arrears every two weeks based on your schedule of completed sessions.
As with any kind of training, the results that you see will depend in large part on the work that you put in. Homework is assigned by every tutor between every session, and each student typically takes two full practice tests each month. These tests are completed using our digital testing platform, which provides immediate access to the student’s results and provides the tutor with a wealth of analytics that will be used in the next session to assess performance and guide the program to its next test date.
Nearly every student takes the official test more than once, and many test up to three times before the program is complete.
As a parent, you’ll be given access to Teachworks, the program-management and billing platform through which you will see a complete schedule of sessions, review your bi-weekly invoices, and update your credit card information. Teachworks is also the delivery mechanism for feedback from your tutor about your child’s program.
We want this process to be as transparent and simple for you as possible. If you have questions about the tutoring process or would like additional feedback, your child’s tutor is never more than a phone call or email away; if you have questions or concerns about other aspects of the program, the same is true of our office staff. When you work with us, you get more than a great tutor: you get a team of people committed to helping your child succeed.
