At the primary and middle school levels (grades 5 to 8), Chevy Chase Prep’s tutoring covers all core subjects and integrated projects. At the high school level, we specialize in English across the curriculum--especially in modes of academic writing—history and social sciences, mathematics from Pre-algebra and Algebra 1 through AP Calculus, and natural and physical sciences, including AP courses. We keep current on the curricula of many local schools, public and independent.
Chevy Chase Prep discusses differences between the ISEE and SSAT to offer informed options. We usually advise high school juniors to take the SAT and ACT once, and to re-take their better test. At all levels, we pre-test to baseline performance, tutor regularly to practice test-taking strategies and control of material, and post-test to assess sustainable mastery of strategies and material. Also, Chevy Chase Prep offers an array of exclusive SAT/ACT test prep packages.
Chevy Chase Prep’s lead essay coach is a specialist in rhetoric and composition. She has facilitated improvements in secondary school writing assessments, and reviewed essays and writing samples to make competitive college admissions decisions. She truly enjoys guiding students in the writing process, from creatively brainstorming topics, to crafting clear, concise, and mechanically sound expositions, to fine-tuning and submitting polished pieces of work.
Chevy Chase Prep’s founder exudes pride in successfully placing hundreds of students, some of whom have earned highly competitive scholarships. We custom design placement packages that may include identifying and researching college and university “fits,” fully completing applications to ranked sets of “reach,” “match,” and “safety” schools, applying for scholarships, interviewing and touring, and carefully weighing options to make well-informed decisions.
