AP Test Prep

AP Test Prep in Phoenix, AZ

With the help of an expert AP test tutor, you may improve your scores and your chances of passing your AP exams, strengthening your college application.

As a Phoenix high school student with a goal of gaining admission into a top college, you likely understand the importance of taking advanced placement courses and exams for the college admissions process. Highly selective college admissions committees want to see that you’ve taken the most rigorous curriculum available at your high school, including advanced placement classes. Because the difficulty of classes varies greatly from schools all over the Valley and the nation, admissions committees also want to see that you have taken, passed and scored well on your AP exams. This helps them to understand that you have a true command of the material and helps you to stand out among the sea of applicants. With the help of an expert AP tutor from Going Ivy, you may improve your scores and your chances of passing your AP exams, strengthening your application.

The Importance of AP Test Tutoring

The importance of your AP tests depends on where you want to attend college. Colleges that are not as highly selective will sometimes grant college credit to you if you pass these tests and allow you to skip past some introductory or core courses. These courses and your AP exam test preparation will also help you to build your skill set, allowing you to understand how to study later when you are in college.

For the most highly selective schools such as the Ivy League institutions, you will not receive college credit for passing your AP exams, but they are still important for your admissions prospects. Harvard will grant academic credit to certain students who have taken and passed AP exams, but it will do so only if those students have elected and meet the eligibility guidelines for advanced standing. Even if your chosen school does not grant credit for your AP exams, most still want to see that you have taken the exams and passed. Scoring fives on several AP exams may help to strengthen your application because admissions officers will be able to see that you have the requisite skill set to be successful in your college courses. Taking and passing your AP classes and exams may also translate into higher scores on your standardized college admissions tests, including the ACT and SAT, which also impacts the strength of your college applications.

The Going Ivy Difference with AP Test Preparation

While you can purchase AP test preparation materials or hire any tutor among a large number for help with your AP exams, choosing Going Ivy can give you an advantage. We use a results-driven, industry-leading approach to AP tutoring, and all of our tutors are the best available. Our AP tutors are the top scholars in their respective academic fields and are terrific communicators so that they are able to coach and teach you in a way that is easily understandable.

We begin by getting to know you so that we can understand your unique learning style and needs. We then design and implement an in-depth, personalized plan that is designed to help you to obtain the best score possible on your AP exams. Instead of teaching students in large groups like some of our competitors do, we have found that students do the best when they work with our expert tutors one-on-one. We are focused on helping you to be motivated and to maintain your motivation throughout the test preparation process in order to maximize your success.

Today’s students are busy, juggling multiple responsibilities and activities. Our tutors recognize this and are able to be flexible with helping you. We can meet you near your school or home, or you can come to one of our tutoring centers. Some students prefer to receive their AP tutoring via video conferencing with top scholars at the nation’s leading colleges and institutions. We have tutors who are embedded on elite college campuses such as Harvard, Barrett Honors College and Princeton who are able to give you their full attention while also letting you see a little bit of what life is like on their campuses.
