Vint Hill Educational Services was designed to provide students with a one-to-one, customized, and supportive tutoring experience, taking into account each student’s skills, challenges, goals, and learning styles. Due to our individualized approach, VHES has demonstrated success in helping students increase their test scores, improve their grades, and adjust to the increasing demands of academia. Our tutors work closely with families to develop the most appropriate lesson plans, focus on the most relevant material, and modify services as needed to ensure that students meet their educational objectives.
Whether a student needs help preparing for exams, making sense of course material, or just getting organized for school, VHES offers specialized services to address each student’s academic needs. These services include Test Prep, Subject Tutoring, Mock Testing, Academic Coaching, and College Planning and Preparation. We also offer a hybrid package that allows students to receive both tutoring and coaching services concurrently. This is a great option for those who need more than just help understanding content or keeping up in class. Tutoring hours are also transferrable if students would like to switch to another service.
Full-scale Diagnostic Reports
Our test-prep program includes a full diagnostic report that shows how the student is performing in each dimension of standardized tests such as the ACT, SAT, SSAT, ISEE and HSPT. This detailed report is the basis for test-prep planning and instrumental in helping us customize a tutoring program that addresses the most pertinent test sections. For students taking both the ACT and SAT, we also provide a concordance chart with test recommendations. In addition, VHES offers students the option to take a practice test at home, in a group setting, or individually with one of our proctors.
We arrange sessions to suit each student’s schedule and preferred location. Most students choose to meet with their tutor in the home once or twice a week, but sessions can also be held at a public library, a local coffee shop, or our office locations if the home is not the best option. Our tutors work directly with parents to arrange sessions that work best with the student’s schedule.
All VHES tutors are required to have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree and to demonstrate content knowledge by passing multiple subject-specific diagnostic tests. We hand select the best tutor based upon the student’s needs and personality style, and parents will receive the tutor’s profile for review and approval. This profile includes the tutor’s experience, education, background, and approach to helping students succeed. Whether a student wants to brush up on a few concepts or needs intensive instruction in a particular subject, we strive to create an optimal tutor-student fit that is conducive to improved scores and school performance.
Quality Tutors with Relevant Experience
VHES offers flat-fee packages with no gimmicks or hidden costs. Each of our test-prep packages includes a baseline practice test, a full set of course books, weekly homework, access to our Teachworks parent portal, and session notes that detail the progress your child is making throughout the program. Extra sessions can be added to any of our packages, while tiered discounts are available for students who need long-term tutoring.
All-inclusive and Flexible Packages
Most importantly, VHES has demonstrated success in helping students reach and exceed their academic goals. We track our students’ scores to ensure improvement and modify programs as needed to resolve any ongoing challenges. Our most recent performance evaluation shows that our test-prep students are approximating score increases of 130 total points for the SAT and 4.5 composite points for the ACT. Moreover, our programs equip students with valuable, practical, and long-term skills such as strategizing their approach to exams, optimizing their learning style, studying more proficiently, and managing their time more effectively. We at VHES take pride in the efficacy of our services and the progress of our students.
