2020 Brings Exciting Changes for Baltimore Education Company: Now Offering Point-Based Guarantees for Virtual Tutoring

0

When you think about test prep, you think of companies like Kaplan or Princeton Review, both of which offer class-based programs on an expedited timeline.  Maybe you know a few people who have had success with these kinds of programs.They’ve been around forever. These courses provide instructors with pre-written lesson plans, recycled questions and homework assignments, and virtually no individual attention.  And this option will work for some students— because it sounds a lot like school.

Commercialized, class-based options are more affordable. Their affordability is why customers keep coming even when the results aren’t consistent or proven.  Those with the money, who want to avoid the wasted time and middling results the class option often delivers, will seek out one-on-one tutoring.  But even then, it’s difficult for parents to find a reliable company or tutor. How does a parent know when they’ve found a test prep option worthy of a lofty investment?

Streamline Tutors, a Baltimore-based test prep company, is taking the guesswork out of the equation. Starting in February 2020, Streamline will be offering point-based improvement virtual tutoring packages.  This means that parents can make an investment in their students’ future with guaranteed results— in the size of 150 or 200 points of improvement— to the tune of $20 per SAT point.
