Great question! Our clients have seen tremendous success. It is not uncommon for our clients to see an ACT improvement of 6-8 points and an SAT improvement of 300-400 points. Many have seen more growth!
For every 10 hours of prep you receive one free full-length proctored test. Additional mock tests can be purchased at a $100 fee.
All of our tutors bring their unique personality and approach to the table and they have all scored in the 98 percentile and above on the standardized tests.
We believe there is no better material then actual test questions. We pull from previous tests and official guides to help your student understand and practice for the test.
Hate to sound like a broken record, but it truly depends on the student. Those students who come in with content mastery, that diligently do their homework and take session-time seriously could prepare in as little as 10-15 hours. However, we find that most students require between 20-30 hours to prepare.
Rather then focusing on “beating the test” we help students “understand the test”. We help students understand the content underlying the test to ensure they master the foundational learning concepts. Then, we help students apply this knowledge towards test strategy and best-practices test-taking skills.
Similar to the above, every student is different! Some students work best when they do not have any time pressure and others find success when the clock is ticking. We start working with students as early as the summer after sophomore year and as late as 6-weeks prior to test date.
Just as every student learns differently, they test in unique ways as well. The SAT tends to be a better test for those who are strong in logic and the ACT for those who prefer content. As the ACT is more closely tied to classroom content, we feel it may be a preferable test for many students. If you are going to spend 20-30 hours studying for a test, shouldn’t it help you in school as well?
Either way – we would be happy to give your son/daughter a FREE full-length mock ACT and SAT providing a customized report and recommendation.
