Simulated SAT Exams

Our program features simulated exams, with actual SAT I content, proctored and administered under true timed test conditions. Scores are analyzed to diagnose each student’s strengths and weaknesses. Practice tests to do at home also are provided.

Expert Teachers

We have state-certified Reading Specialists as teachers, not college students. Our math teachers are also experts in both content and SAT test strategies, embracing time management, handling test anxiety and point scoring guidelines. All are trained in the Estelle Finkel method of SAT test strategies and solutions. They teach you to identify the questions that are best for you to answer in the limited time you have.

Small Groups

Classes are usually limited to 5-to-15 students. There is a high degree of individualized instruction. Class instruction and dates are as scheduled.

An All-Around Boost

Each and every SAT preparation course we deliver helps the student immeasurably in developing knowledge and test-taking strategies to use in all academic areas.

Your tutors prepped both of my children for the ISEE exam incredibly well in a very short number of sessions, and each went into the test feeling confident and well-prepared (and achieved great results). Thank you!”

-Betsy Z., Parent

You have given me the confidence I need to succeed on these standardized tests. I scored higher than I could ever imagine on the reading section of the ACTs and I have to say it is thanks to you.”

Thank you so much for all your help over the past couple of years! In the end, I got a 710 on Critical Reading, 800 in Math, and 760 on my writing in the SATs. I will be attending Northwestern University next fall. I could never have done it without you.
