Your child’s GPA is still the most important factor in college admissions, and academic tutoring can help them.
The most important factor in college admissions is not standardized test scores, the college admissions essay, letters of recommendation, or anything else. It’s actually a student’s GPA. Why? While all of the other factors of a student’s application are the result of their work over a short period of time, a high GPA shows colleges that students can remain motivated and achieve goals in the long-term.
The best kind of academic tutoring is preventative maintenance—fixing the problem before it begins. This is especially true of subjects with topics that build on themselves, like math, science, or foreign languages.
