Each student undergoes a full practice exam under simulated test conditions. After which an eight-page score report is generated that breaks down each question by difficulty and type. This information is used to pinpoint individual strengths and weaknesses for targeted, personalized tutoring. Both ACT and SAT practice exams are available. If unsure which exam the student is best suited for, we recommend taking the ACT and then SAT practice exams on consecutive weekends.
Parents and students consult with our admissions test professionals to set college-specific testing goals. The appropriateness of ACT vs SAT is considered, and in conjunction with the score report, a progressive tutoring plan is devised to best reach target scores.
Students engage in a personalized curriculum to improve individual weaknesses and maximize effectiveness of the preparation. Tutors are all experienced educators and high scorers on recent exams. Tutoring is provided over 12, one-on-one 90-minute sessions, ideally once per week during the school year and twice per week during the summer. Tutoring should commence at least three months prior to the actual test date. Additional sessions can be purchased in three-session packages.
Every session concludes with homework from real exams to be completed at home. Students take a minimum of 3 full exams in simulated exam environment as part of tutoring. In addition, parents and academic consultants can review session notes and score progression online.
Students can sit for their exams with confidence that their weaknesses have been personally bolsterd, their test taking strategey has been honed, and without anxiety as they have accumulated several full exams of experience.
