College Essay and Test Prep Guidance



Navigating the transition from high school to college can be really challenging. Students have to balance studying for SAT or ACT, selecting and completing the right courses in their senior year, writing college essays, and managing athletic or extra-curricular demands. Anxious students can find this process particularly challenging. Having a trusted academic expert and coach to help your teen succeed on the critical college essay and on standardized tests that count for 30-40% of the application's value. Don't leave the prospects of his or her collegiate career to chance. Alliance has developed a network of highly trained and experienced tutors, the best available in the country, who can work side by side with your teen to guide them. Alliance also offers proprietary test prep programs specifically designed for anxious test takers that will help the student increase their score through 'diagnosis, drill and deliver,' a patented three-phase system that has proven, guaranteed results. We have never failed to bring up a student's test scores dramatically, typically by hundreds of points for the SAT. Above all, we help your teen get in, and stay in, the college that best fits their aspirations. Alliance Tutoring's college essay and test prep service includes:

Standardized Testing Process

The tutors will assist the student in the entire standardized testing process, from general approaches to test performance, to specialized academic material, to strategies to “crack” the SSAT, SAT, ACT, GRE, AP and other associated testing.  We’ve never failed to dramatically improve a score, even after just one session.

Complete College Essays

The tutors will assist the student in completing all college essays: general and supplemental, drafting and redrafting until the essays well represent the student’s positive qualities.  We’re experts on what college admissions officials seek and how to customize the essays to get noticed.

College Transition Assistance

Our tutors provide total support– in academics, extra-curricular and social life– in the notoriously difficult transition into college.  With a 38% attrition rate in the first year alone in American colleges, nothing could be more important than providing this support.
