At Study Bridge, we guarantee that your child’s ACT scores will increase after our private tutoring sessions. We offer the following guarantees for our tutoring programs:
|Tutoring Program||SAT (2017)*|
|15 Hour Program||Increase of at least 100 points|
|36 Hour Program||Increase of at least 200 points|
*The composite score range for the new SAT (2016) is 400 to 1600.
However, students must complete all of the following components of our tutoring program to maintain eligibility:
|Practice Tests||Complete all SAT Practice tests within the program|
|Tutoring||Complete entire tutoring program including all tutoring hours within the program|
|Homework||Complete all homework assignments by the end of program|
|Scores||Submit final SAT scores and official baseline scores|
|Test Date||Take SAT within one month of the last tutoring session|
As illustrated in the previous tables, we guarantee a point increase according to our program’s hours. Our Point Increase Guarantee is based on the new PSAT and SAT score range. Students who score a 1200 or higher on the new PSAT (2016) will be guaranteed an increase in scores.
If your child fulfills all of the required components but still does not achieve our guaranteed score increase, we will provide compensation. Your child will receive an additional 10 hours of free tutoring, where we will provide new learning materials. We can also provide your child a new tutor upon your request.
Guarantee for the SAT (2016)
To calculate a student’s score improvement, we use your child’s PSAT scores as the baseline. If your child has not taken the PSAT but has taken an official new SAT test (2016), their first SAT score will be used as the baseline. If your child has taken neither the PSAT nor the official SAT, we require parents to proctor an SAT practice test for their child and submit a signed proctor verification form.
The test must have all the time limits of the official ACT and must be completed in one sitting. Identifying a student’s baseline score is critical for helping our tutors determine where a student needs to improve. Therefore, Study Bridge requires the completion of an officially proctored SAT test before the first lesson.
