Baron Education believes in unlocking the potential of every student. High school is a great opportunity to lay the foundations for a successful college career. Your student has the power to get on track for his or her ideal college through careful class selection and academic achievement. We offer one-on-one tutoring in all academic subjects to help your student succeed throughout high school.
Test prep is the key to success on the SAT and ACT. We offer prep classes both live and online that offer proven test taking strategies while working with real test questions. For a more personalized approach, private tutoring allows your student to work closely with an expert on developing great test-taking skills and identifying specific areas to work on.
While test prep is integral to college admissions, it is only one piece of the puzzle. We also offer college admissions consulting to ease the often-stressful process of college planning. One-on-one consultations with our experts allow you and your student to make a game plan to get into his or her choice college. Whether you need help identifying colleges to apply to, preparing for college interviews, planning your student's curriculum, or writing an excellent application essay, we are here to help you through the entire process.
No matter what your academic needs, CollegeDrive will partner with you and your student to help achieve your goals.
What Our Students and Parents Say About Us
I had a great tutor! He showed me various techniques and strategies that allowed me to master the art of the ACT. I started with a score of 25 and ended with a final score of 33! I highly recommend College Drive. They are well worth the time and money and they really know how to help students excel.
My son finished his ACT's and was glad to have had the specialized help from CollegeDrive. Thank you! When Jackson's results came back he had moved up 7 points! I am very pleased.
A big thank you is in order to the staff at CollegeDrive. Not only are you so helpful over the phone, but the class my daughter attended had a great impact on her ACT scores. Her "PLAN" English score was 20...and her ACT score came in at 27 (Reading went from 22 up to 32). She is pleased with her scores and is very thankful that she was able to attend the class on such short notice. I absolutely love the fact that we have a quality test-prep study class right here in Evergreen. Thank you!
I've been in sales for 20 years, and a thank you is rare. So I just wanted to contact you and say thank you so much. I just got a text with about 48 exclamation marks from my son, and he got a 31 in math, and he is super excited! He needed a 30 to have a really good shot at getting into the Mechanical Engineering program at CU. I just wanted to say thank you so much. That's a huge improvement over his first score (5 points). Like I said, you don't get enough thank yous in this world, so I thought I'd share that good news and say thank you.
We are very excited, and my daughter is extremely happy with her scores. If anyone is on the fence with using CollegeDrive, I'd say got for it 100%. It'll improve your child's SAT scores. They'll be more comfortable when they take the test, and I think it will improve their scores greatly. CollegeDrive was an excellent experience.
My child's experience with CollegeDrive was great. He was able to figure out the patterns based on the program and he increased his score by 190 points. The impact was superior.
Our son had scored a 1070 on his PSAT last year, and after taking the course, scored a 1290 SAT and is quite happy and proud of his result. I would highly recommend your program from a cost, time commitment and result basis. Thanks for helping achieve his goals on the SAT.
Our son just wrapped up high school. Prior to your tutoring, he had scored 1110. The final time that he took the SAT (after tutoring), he scored a 1220, which increased his out-of-state scholarship award from $1500 to $3500 per year!
I would just like to take a moment to share our experience with CollegeDrive. He had taken the SAT and cam out feeling like he was not fully prepared for the Writing & Language and Reading sections. After taking the class, he improved all of his scores and improved his total by 160 points! Thanks again, we would highly recommend this class to other seniors!
