Test Preparation For College Admission

OUR CREDO: A solid academic foundation not only improves test scores – it lays the groundwork for future educational success.

Our tutors have more than four decades of experience preparing students for national standardized tests. We work hard to help each student realize his or her greatest potential. Many of our students have gained admission to Ivy League schools, and other top colleges and universities such as Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Amherst, Bentley, Stanford and more.

Our success is based on evaluating and addressing the gaps in each student’s knowledge of math, English, and other academic subjects, while building on his or her strengths. We strongly believe that test-taking tips and tricks will not raise test scores significantly if a student does not have a solid understanding of the subject.

We engage students in a deliberate course of study, helping them master the fundamentals and then challenging them to apply those principles to a broad range of sample problems. They can then attack the test with confidence, trusting their well-honed reasoning skills, instead of gambling on superficial strategies.

“I was accepted Early Action to Yale and will be enrolling there undecided in the fall. When I consider the factors that led to this result, I think of the massive help you gave me in boosting my [SAT] scores to a level that I really didn’t think I had in me. Your books and teaching not only raised my scores, but also helped my vocabulary and grammar, both in writing and speech.”
– Greg C.
