Proven Teaching Approach

We recognize that every student is unique — in personality, learning style, and goals. That’s why we customize every single one of our programs to fit the individual. Our programs take place one-on-one, in-home or online, and are tailored to the student’s pace, strengths, and areas for improvement. Our continual process of assessment and customization is the key, guaranteeing that the content is always serving the student’s needs, helping to build confidence, and improve scores and grades. Learn more about our approach.

Our Approach

Free Practice Tests

Summit offers free proctored practice tests to serve as a diagnostic tool and help inform test prep planning. We make it easy and convenient for your students to take practice tests by offering options for online and in-person proctored practice tests. Much like a scrimmage or dress rehearsal, practice tests remove the mystery of the test, reduce test anxiety, and increase confidence. Students take practice tests throughout their one-on-one tutoring program.
