Group Classes

In addition to individual tutoring, Better Edge offers test prep and enrichment classes. Half the price of individual tutoring sessions, these Group Classes meet once or twice a week.  Each class is 1.5 hours. Since Group Classes enroll between 2 and 4 students, the tutor has the opportunity to work closely with each individual student.


How It Works

For Group Classes, the cost is $40/hour.  Pay-as-you-go with a credit or debit card at the end of each session.

If you miss a session, you can make it up.  We offer multiple sessions of each class per week, and we have multiple tutors who can teach each group class.

Cancellations may affect the group rate for other students. For example, if there are only two students in a group class and one cancels, the group class becomes, by default, an individual tutoring session, which is billed at a slightly higher rate.  (Of course, we will do our best to find a new student to join the small group.)

Group Classes are held in a central location for the students in the group. The tutor will provide handouts, books, and other materials for the students.


Our Classes

We offer 2 test prep Group Classes: the SAT/ACT and the SHSAT. The SAT/ACT class is designed for sophomores, juniors, and seniors in high school preparing for either exam. The SHSAT class is designed for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students preparing for the SHSAT exam (which is generally taken in 8th grade but also offered to students in 9th grade).

We offer 3 enrichment Group Classes: Summer Reading, Persuasive Writing, and Creative Writing. Summer Reading is a course that focuses on improving students’ reading ability, reading comprehension, and general English Language Arts skills. Summer Reading is offered on two different tracks: Middle School (grades 6-8) and High School (grades 9-12). Persuasive Writing is a course that focuses on building students’ argumentative writing skills. It is also offered on two different tracks: Middle School and High School. Finally, Creative Writing is a course designed to develop students’ ability to write imaginatively in the genres of nonfiction, fiction, poetry, and drama. It is open to all students.

Group courses are held at a central location that works for all students in the class. We will do our best to find a class time that fits your schedule.
