Above Grade Level

October's updates

Visit our booth at the Livestyles Expo!

We will be participating at the Lifestyles Expo this coming Nov 9th. Come and stop by our booth!


When: Saturday Nov 9th from 9 to 4pm
Where: Star Hill Family Athletic Center, 100 Gerber Drive, Tolland, CT 06084 http://www.lifestylesexpoct.com/
Raffle!: We are offering a raffle open to all visitors at our booth! One free assessment and a number of free tutoring hours! You can use it for up to one year! Great present to your family, or any of your friends in the Tolland county area!

Free SAT mock tests are back!

Back by popular demand, the full fledge SAT and ACT mock tests are back!


The concept is to offer students a free-of-charge, full-fledged 4 hours SAT, or ACT test, using the College Board SAT tests or the Barron's ACT tests.

We will proctor each test and meet with the family to review the results, identify areas of strength and weakness, and offer relevant tutoring programs.


Aside from identifying improvement areas, there are advantages for high school students to go through the 4 hour practice test: Learning what to bring to the SAT or the ACT, organizing themselves, managing their time, approaching the questions and nibbling away at the anxiety related to taking exams.


When: Saturday Nov. 16th (8am-12pm), Saturday Dec 7th (8am-12pm), Saturday Jan 11th (8am-12pm).

Where: Star Hill Family Athletic Center, 100 Gerber Drive, Tolland, CT 06084

OUR UNIQUE APPROACH

Our Assessment

At Above Grade Level, we believe that an effective tutoring program should begin with an accurate assessment of the student's academic strengths and weaknesses.


Our Assessment is:

1. Free of charge

2. Created by professors at the University of California, Berkeley

3. Fully adaptive so it adjusts based on the way the student answers the questions

4. Available for students who need tutoring in Math and English


After the student completes the assessment, we arrange for a free in-home consultation to discuss the results in detail and recommend a tutoring program.

Our Curiculum

Our curriculum has been developed over the last 30 years and is constantly updated to meet state standards (such as common core requirements). After assessing your student's unique skill gaps, we create a customized curriculum to ensure academic success. This curriculum forms the basis for the in-home instructional program conducted by our professional tutors.

Our guarantee

We are so confident in our assessment, curriculum, and tutors we guarantee the result!


Your student will improve at least one full grade level or 10 percentage points in mathematics or English after 24 tutoring sessions* or we’ll provide 15 additional hours at no further cost.


*The tutoring sessions must be completed in a timely manner and as recommended by the individualized learning program developed for your child. Results are based on the initial and follow-up assessments done by Above Grade Level.

Above Grade Level

Above Grade Level provides an internationally proven in-home tutoring and academic enrichment program based on over 30 years of experience. We have helped hundreds of students in Math, English and many other subjects. We are confident we can help your child too!


We begin with a comprehensive on-line assessment developed by professors at the University of California, Berkeley that pinpoints skill gaps in math and reading. Then, we create a customized curriculum to ensure academic success. This curriculum forms the basis for the in-home instructional program conducted by our professional tutors.
