Why Beck College Prep?

Why Beck College Prep?

Beck uses a disciplined, proven, and advanced approach that focuses on the individual needs of the student right from your own home. It’s personal and tailored to the student, and our results speak volumes. In fact, all of our students have attained admission to a four-year college.

BECK COLLEGE PREP PROVIDES THE FOLLOWING AMENITIES FOR SUBJECT AREA TUTORING, TEST PREPARATION, AND COLLEGE COUNSELING PROGRAMS:

Motivational

We are our students’ academic cheerleaders. When homework, studying, test preparation, and college applications seem overwhelming to students, we motivate our students to reach their academic potential. Beck College Prep tutors do not let students quit on their academic goals.  

Simplification

Beck simplifies the overly complicated and stressful college application process through a personalized step-by-step plan for each student. This simplification is translated into our Subject Area and/or Test Preparation tutoring programs needed to help students attain admission into the college they desire. 

Extensive Time & Dedication

With the average class size of schools increasing, teachers cannot address or identify each student’s strengths and weaknesses. In addition, according to the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), a U.S. public school college counselor manages on average the caseload of 471 students. Therefore, the average public school guidance counselor does not have enough time to provide students with the time and dedication throughout the college admissions process.

At Beck, we provide an around-the-clock service. We spend as many hours needed with our students to provide the best comprehensive tutoring, test preparation, and full review of all the student’s college applications. We provide the needed academic prescription to correct your student’s academic deficiencies.

Unique Research & Matching Process

With regard to Beck College Prep’s college counseling services, Beck uses various innovative research methods to create a College Match List. Beck creates this match list by utilizing a student’s college resume and academic data along with their unique collegiate priorities and goals to create an individualized and diverse list of safety, target, and reach universities/colleges.

Results-Oriented

Subject Area Tutoring: Students that received instruction from our tutors usually increase their class grades by a minimum of two letter grades.

Test Preparation: After using the Beck 5 Step Method, on average, students increase their ACT diagnostic score by 3 points and increase their SAT diagnostic scores by 200 points.

College Counseling Program: Every student that has received assistance from Beck has received an admission acceptance from a four-year university and/or college. No matter the extenuating circumstances (i.e. low GPA, low test scores, lack of student involvement, etc.), Beck knows how to market a student’s strengths to gain admission to a college/university on the student’s individualized College Match List.

Flexible Scheduling

Beck college advisors and tutoring instructors will go to a student’s home or an approved location based on the parent’s preference.

Persistent Tracking & Communication

Beck will consistently track and report improvements in grades for subject areas we are tutoring. For test preparation (i.e. ACT/SAT tutoring) instructors will consistently track a student’s score improvements as well as progress in the student’s completion of the testing preparation plan.

With the help of Beck College Prep, my son is now a University of Miami Hurricane!!!”

“Beck College Prep knows how to push you to perform well, and is always open to your opinions.”

– Jake Tobizyck, Class of 2016 Student at Westminster Christian School

“My son is in 8th grade and often has two and three tests and quizzes on the same day. I hired Beck College Prep to review his subjects with him and help him study for his exams. He has an excellent tutor who is well-versed in all subjects. She comes to the house and works to accommodate everyone’s schedule. She is tough when she needs to be, but my son enjoys working with her. I highly recommend Beck College Prep to anyone who needs after school tutoring.”

– Michelle Starke Class of 2018 Student at Riviera Prepatory School

“Beck College prep personalizes the sessions to your learning needs and to the specific things you need to work on more.”

– Jennifer Vazquez, Class of 2016 Student at Coral Reef Senior High School

“Beck College Prep always has my best interest at heart.”

– Lexi Gomez Class of 2016 Student at Palmetto Senior High School

“Before I found Beck College Prep, I had numerous tutors. Those tutors made me feel like my ACT score would stay the same no matter how much I practiced. Beck College Prep’s tutor had the ability to understand my learning style and provide clear and concise instruction. Not only was my tutor entertaining, but when I felt overwhelmed her confidence on my intelligence and skills pushed me to continue to practice. With my tutor’s help I improved my ACT score by 4 points. I gained admission to schools such as Boston College, University of Wisconsin, Boston University, and many more schools. I am glad I found Beck College Prep. Now, my sister uses their services for school, and her school grades have significantly improved.”

– Winona Paez, Class of 2015 Miami Country Day School

“ I contracted Beck College Prep at the beginning of my Junior. I was very stressed with the entire test prep process. I tried to do it on my own, but it seemed to be very overwhelming. Beck College Prep matched me with an excellent tutor that really understood my weaknesses on both the SAT and the ACT and quickly corrected them. I am not going to lie, they assigned a lot of homework and demanded that I practice consistently. But in all fairness, without the personalized curriculum they made for me, I would not have been able to improve my score by 4 points from my original diagnostic score. Beck College Prep helped me increase my chances to get into the college of my dreams.”

– Kheori Du Puch, Class of 2016 Ransom Everglades School

“I stopped trying to understand my children’s homework since 9th grade. Beck College Prep continues to be the Tutors that allowed both of my children to have outstanding scores in both the ACT & SAT tests. The equally daunting task of College Prep, has fallen to them and is allowing my son to apply to all of the schools he dreams of attending. College is a business and as a busy parent I find it impossible to navigate without hiring professionals. Without hesitation I wish to promote the services of this wonderful company.”

– Lance Opland, Parent of Class of 2015 & 2016 Students at Coral Gables Senior High School
