Our mission is simple and straightforward:
Our students come first, always!
Westside Tutoring & Testing Services (WTTS) has been tutoring, mentoring, and coaching students for over 35 years.
Initially part-time and later full-time, Westside Tutoring & Testing Services has helped hundreds of students reach their full potential:
One student at a time!
Westside Tutoring & Testing Services specializes in (but not limited to) tutoring, mentoring, and coaching students diagnosed with learning difficulties (e.g., ADHD, Asperger’s syndrome, dyslexia, traumatic brain injury (TBI), etc).
Furthermore, Westside Tutoring & Testing Services is not “School 2.0.” Every tutoring and test preparation session is one-on-one. Every course of instruction is tailored to meet our student’s needs, goals, and desires. Additionally, every session is designed to bring out the very best in our students.
To that end, we take the shortest, most effective route to success:
Once again, one student at a time!
With our mission in mind, we help students get back on track as quickly as possible, routinely going from Cs, Ds, and Fs to As and Bs in a matter of a few short weeks. Education does not have to be an ordeal. In fact, learning can be and should be fun.
We share our love of learning as we connect with our students. Therefore, by sharing the experiences we have gleaned from over three-and-one-half decades of working with hundreds of students, we can engender striking change in a relatively short period. It has been a wonderful experience for student and tutor alike.
Westside Tutoring & Testing Services has also helped scores of students prepare for and master all of the following examinations: HSPT, SSAT, PSAT, PLAN, ACT-COMPASS, AP (all subjects), CLEP (all subjects), PARCC, ACT, SAT, SAT Subject Tests, OGT, GED, GRE, LSAT, GMAT, MCAT, PRAXIS II, ASVAB, and many more.
Westside Tutoring & Testing Services has had the honor and privilege of working with (i.e., tutor, mentor, coach) students from Ashtabula to Sandusky and Suburban Cleveland to Wooster.
WTTS students hail from Amherst, Avon, Avon Lake, Bay Village, Brecksville, Broadview Heights, Huron, Lakewood, Macedonia, Medina, North Olmsted, North Royalton, Olmsted Falls, Painesville, Rocky River, Sandusky, Seville, Solon, Strongsville, Vermilion, Westlake, Wooster, and many more.
Westside Tutoring & Testing Services students have also come from Hawken School, Magnificat High School, St. Ignatius High Schoool, St. Edward’s High School, St. Joseph’s Academy, St. Peter’s, St. Raphael’s, Lawrence School, University School, and many more.
Test Anxiety is Not a Permanent State
Testing does not have to cause undue stress. To that end, we teach our students to understand the difference between eustress (good stress that helps you perform at your best) and distress (negative, destructive stress based on fear and worry: irrational thought). We teach students how to approach test taking in a completely new way.
Once again, test anxiety does not have to be permanent.
By learning how to anticipate, focus, prepare, and master, Westside Tutoring & Testing Services’ students learn how to put test anxiety behind them once and for all. Testing does not have to be, nor should it be, a painful ordeal.
Finally, Westside Tutoring & Testing Services’ students have attended or are now attending many of our nation’s top colleges, universities, and professional schools. They have learned how to excel as productive, focused, and confident students in any setting. We are also extremely proud of the fact that several WTTS students have gained admission to the United States Military Academy, United States Naval Academy, United States Air Force Academy, United States Merchant Marine Academy, and United States Coast Guard Academy over the years.
Westside Tutoring & Testing Services students learn how to excel in academia and in life!
Whether you (or someone you know) need help preparing for an upcoming final exam, entrance exam, proficiency test, academic subject, or college application and essay, we can help. We have helped struggling students master history, English, AP Chemistry, AP Physics, etc.
Westside Tutoring & Testing Services is committed to one end:
Our students’ success, both short and long term!
Our mission remains clear:
Our students come first, always!
