    A Success Academics is A+ in my book!
    This was my first time using a tutorial service. I must say, I could not be more pleased with the results. I wanted to get my son (a senior in high school) additional help as he prepared to take the ACT. His tutors were Mr. Darryl Marquette and Ms. Johnnie (JR) Redding. Both were amazing! They interacted well with my son and were able to present the information to him in a manner that was clear and concise. The techniques shared were invaluable. Thanks to both Mr. Marquette and Ms. Redding, my son's ACT score improved 9 points. We all were pleasantly surprised. I would definitely use them again. If you are in the market for a tutor, I highly recommend them.

    My high schooler needed some extra help in preparing for SAT/ACT testing and we hired "A" Success Academics, Inc. to do the tutoring. Both tutors did a fine job in giving my daughter the tools, abilities and courage to do well on her test. Thank you!

    I had a great experience with A Success Academics. They helped me in so many areas and gave me the confidence I needed going into my test.
  • Kevin Brown B. Aug 4, 2016
    The instructor was extremely kind, professional, and especially knowledgeable about math and science subjects, I highly recommend his program to any student trying to score higher on the Act and Sat tests...
  • Arle W. Jul 12, 2016
    We had a wonderful experience with A Success Academics, Inc. and plan to use them for any academic needs moving forward. Darryl was really able to connect with my son and it made my son feel extremely comfortable to share his weaknesses, so that he could receive the necessary instruction. Every child learns differently and has varied experiences from the next student, so tutorial sessions and tutoring can never be 'cookie cutter' if you want to see success in your scholar. A Success made sure that my son received his own sessions that were tailored to his needs. Regardless of his scores on the exam, he felt confident and prepared walking into the test. The way that A Success Academics, Inc. worked with my one and only, made me very pleased and I have recommended them to others, as a result of their professionalism and the manner in which they attacked the test, shared strategies and made my son feel like he was receiving instruction by someone who really cared about them as an individual.

    Mr. Marquette was awesome. He was professional, knowledgeable and made my daughter feel extremely comfortable. I have no doubt that he gave her the exact tools needed to ace the ACT. She was poised and ready at test time. She enjoyed her time with him so much that she asked if we could continue the relationship should she need it in the future.

  • Adjoa D. Jan 19, 2016
    My daughter had a four hour session to prepare for her upcoming SAT exam. When I left her, she seemed very lethargic and uninterested. Four hours later, upon my return she was totally different; energetic and engaged. The tutors were very hands on and broke past my daughter's wall. They offered assistance throughout the week leading to the SAT and were very personable. I have no doubt that she's going to excel.
  • Stacy W. Jan 17, 2016
    My daughter Sydney needed tutoring for the Math portion of the SAT. I was able to have a discussion with Mr. Marquette before the first tutoring session to express my concerns as a parent. He was very hands on, thorough and professional. Mr. Marquette actually held Sydney accountable for her role in this process. The overall experience was positive. Sydney's SAT Math score increased and her confidence grew. I will definitely use "A" Success Academics, Inc. again. Thanks Mr. Marquette!
  • Makenzie L. Jan 17, 2016
    I have had many tutors in the past but none of them have helped me grab and understand the concepts like Mr.Darryl. He helped me improve my SAT math score by 50 points. I would definitely recommend him to any student struggling with math because he's the best.

    I selected Darryl Marquettte to assist my daughter Makenzie with her SAT preparation after interviewing several other individuals and companies. I made the right choice! Darryl was personable and professional. He was thorough and efficient, all while making sure he went at a comfortable pace for my daughter. We are looking forward to seeing an increase in her math score! I have already recommended Darryl and A Success Academy to several of my friends and coworkers and plan on hiring him to tutor my 10th grade son Myles as well.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Our typical process starts with a phone conversation to discuss specific needs (ie subject to be tutored, desired day(s)/time(s) that are most convenient for client etc.) Pricing will be discussed during this time as well.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I was hired to tutor math (statistics) at UCLA as an undergraduate to fellow undergraduates that were struggling. Upon graduation I began teaching with a public school district in the Los Angeles area. While working in the public school system in Los Angeles, I volunteered with local non profit organizations to provide academic support in the area(s) of math. I later relocated to Atlanta and began working as an educator in the public school system and eventually decided to start my own academic support / mentoring program.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
The inspiration behind “A” Success Academics came from two sources, GOD and "OUR" children. I have always had an affinity for young people and helping to shape lives. After working as an educator for many years, I watched over and over, kids fail not because they lacked knowledge, but they lacked "chemistry". Chemistry in any relationship is fundamental, without it there’s no connection. In order for the learning process to happen, there has to be a connection. God has always been a part of my life. I was led spiritually to take a leap of faith and start my own way of presenting academia to students, a way that would reach the highest of achievers to the lowest, but still make it enjoyable and build long lasting comprehension. Through “A” Success Academics, I have accomplished this goal.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I've worked with ALL types of students including K-12, College and Adults. I/we truly embrace diversity and have worked with students that were below grade level, on grade level, advanced students as well as students with learning disabilities
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I would advise potential clients looking to hire a tutor to ask the following questions: 1. How long have you been tutoring? 2. What are your qualifications, certifications or credentials? 3. Can you tell me a little bit about your teaching philosophy? 4. What can I do to support the tutoring process? 5. How will you communicate with me, and how often? 6. Do you have references I can speak to? 7. What’s your availability? 8. Where will the tutoring sessions take place? 9. How long is each tutoring session? 10. How much do you charge per session? 11. Are there other fees (for materials or assessments, for example)? 12. What’s your policy for cancellations and make-up sessions?
