The Best SAT & PSAT Tutors
Some people are terrific test-takers, while others are great at explaining concepts. We only hire instructors who are exceptional at both. Company President Brian Stewart personally evaluates and trains every SAT tutor. Before we offer candidates an interview, they must have test results in at least the 95th percentile and extensive instructional experience. Before working with students, tutors must complete a rigorous teaching evaluation to demonstrate that (1) they can explain any question students might have on the practice tests and (2) they can offer customized SAT and PSAT content instruction and strategic advice to students. No wonder less than 4% of our applicants are hired. For more information, please check out our Testimonials and Staff Intros.
Highest Quality SAT Test Preparation Materials
Practice only makes perfect if you are using the best materials. Our students use previous real SAT and PSAT tests, SAT & PSAT practice tests we have created, and SAT & PSAT tests that are designed to be more difficult than the actual tests to help students push their limits. The quality of our materials and methods has been recognized by Barron’s Educational Series, which selected company President Brian Stewart to author several PSAT and SAT books.
Completely Personalized Instruction
Working with students one-to-one enables us to meet their individual learning needs. What works for one student to prepare for the SAT or PSAT will not necessarily work for another. Among the factors we consider in customizing our test prep:
- How has a student done previously on the PSAT, ACT, and/or SAT?
- What is a student’s baseline knowledge of English grammar, SAT Vocabulary, SAT math, or other key SAT test content?
- Does the student receive testing accommodations, such as extended time, due to an IEP or 504 Plan?
- To what extent should we discuss test anxiety?
- What are the student’s goals for National Merit Scholarship recognition, an SAT score, and college admissions?
