From a Compass tutor: "Whether I’m working with an ice skater, budding engineer, or musician, I find that their passions inform the way they learn, as well as the way I tutor.” -Amira D., Northwestern University
From a Compass family: "Determining which test (ACT vs. SAT) to prepare for was streamlined based on diagnostic testing and analysis by Compass. Our tutors then identified how my teens best learn and taught them in an efficient, effective manner with clearly set expectations. Scheduling the one-on-one sessions was easy and the tutors worked around our calendar. Both kids increased their ACT scores by 8-10 points. I have many friends who have used other companies and private tutors, and from what they tell me, none of them even remotely compares to the high bar set by Compass." -Parent of two New Trier students
