Score Improvements - McElroy Tutoring

I keep detailed records of my students' progress.  Here is a typical improvement chart for a McElroy student taking the SAT. 

(On average, my students improve 180 points on the New SAT, 5 points on the ACT, 20 points on the GRE, and 100 points on the GMAT.)



In the spring of 2005, I taught a series of SAT-preparation courses in Point Loma, California.  The purpose of this class was to help my students find an affordable way to prepare for the SAT, and to quantify their score improvements under controlled conditions.  (All students were required to take 4 full proctored diagnostic SATs.)  The average combined improvement for these students was 254 points!
