We recognize that the decision to invest in SAT/ACT preparation is an important and often difficult one, given all the options. In light of this, my goal is to help you understand how Ventura County Learning Center SAT/ ACT tutoring is different.

You should know that Ventura County Learning Center specializes in highly personalized, 1-to-1 tutoring in the convenience of our center. Private SAT/ACT tutoring is a premium service. This allows your child to receive undivided attention which leads to greater lesson engagement and accountability than what can be achieved in a classroom or group setting. 

We want you to know that one-to-one tutoring is and always has been our only focus. From an educational perspective, 1-to-1 tutoring is a unique specialty with specific curriculum-designed needs. Too many companies simply take their small group or classroom SAT/ACT materials, change the covers, and hand them to 'tutors'.  We focus on their weakness as an individual based on their practice test.

Personalized SAT Tutoring

Ventura County Learning Center recognizes that every student's abilities and needs are unique. For this reason, we've developed one of the most innovative and personalized private SAT/ACT tutoring programs in the test preparation industry. Our SAT/ACT tutoring program adapts to your child's abilities in two specific ways:

  1. Practice Test Assessment
    Before meeting with a tutor, your child will take an initial diagnostic exam. The results of this exam, as well as your child's performance in the first few sessions, will be used by the tutor to determine the focus of the program. The tutor will cater to your child's unique strengths and weaknesses. Over the course of the program, your child will take additional practice tests to track progress and ensure that he or she is achieving the desired results.
  2. The Right Tutor for Your Child
    We recognize that the better your child connects with his or her tutor, the more motivated he or she will be during our program. For this reason, we work directly with you (and your child) to better understand your child's interests, personality, and learning style. We incorporate these factors into the tutor selection process. We work hard to provide your child with a tutor with whom he or she will work well and easily learn from.
