PSAT Preparation (recommended:  15 hours)

The PSAT/NMSQT is generally given in the student's sophomore and junior years.  While it is similar to the SAT in format, there is currently no essay requirement.  This test is used to determine eligibility for the National Merit scholarship program and, as such, it is advisable to prepare well for it.  We recommend two one-hour sessions or one 90-minute session each week.

SAT or ACT Preparation (recommended:  20 hours)
Students learn basic methodology for approaching each test.  Because these tests are longer than the PSAT and because students usually take them at least twice, a longer period of preparation is necessary.  We recommend two one-hour sessions or one 90-minute session each week.

Ultimate Test Prep Package  

If you are interested in establishing an ongoing academic tutoring relationship (for example, for a ninth- or tenth-grade student), or if you feel that you may need more hours to achieve desired results for one of the standardized tests, any hours over and above the first twenty are billed at $89 per hour, a 10% discount.  Make sure to talk about this when you contact us!

SAT Subject Test Preparation (formerly SAT II) 

(recommend 6 hours per exam)

SAT Subject Tests are a good way for colleges to measure your proficiency in a given subject.  If your college counselor suggests you take one or more, let our expert teachers help you to prepare!
