Tavistock Tutors offers US admissions tutors in the London area. Studying abroad has become an increasingly popular choice in recent years, particularly in the US. However, their admissions systems are quite different from the UCAS system in the UK, and if anything, the competition for places is even fiercer. US students have an inherent advantage due to their understanding of the system; contacting Tavistock Tutors can help level the playing field.
Our tutors have vast experience of the US admissions system, in every subject. They know what admissions tutors look for, and what sets a student out from the crowd. This is especially important due to the emphasis placed on extracurricular activities in the US. Our educational consultants will ensure that you’re matched with the right tutor for your needs and subject. No one takes this process more seriously than Tavistock Tutors and we believe it is the key our success, and yours. As a result, the tutor you’re paired with will arrive with a plan of action tailored towards getting you into your first choice US educational institution. Despite the obvious pressure attached to US college admissions, our tutors will do their upmost to create a stress free environment conducive to achievement. From you first lesson, you will feel like progress is being made.
The main hurdle for a UK applicant to the USA is the lack of a GPA or grade point average. US colleges accept English qualifications such as A-levels but it is often up to the applicant to explain the meaning of these qualifications. In addition to this, English language qualifications and visas are also necessary and can prove complicated. It also goes without saying exams such as the SAT and admissions essays will take different formats compared to their UK equivalents.
