Complete Test Prep Program 

PSAT/NMSQT®/SAT®/ACT® Lessons. (14 lessons, 2 hours each). In each class, you will learn how to tackle a concept you’ll see on the tests. Our instructors will guide you through the content, strategies, and techniques you’ll need to master in order to do your best.

Classes consist of:

  • Small groups (no more than 12 students on a roster)
  • Specialized material for each class meeting
  • Homework for additional practice
  • Diagnostic Testing

Diagnostic Test 1 – Baseline scores provide a starting point.

You’ll take the first diagnostic test before attending any of your lessons. This gives us information about your strengths and weaknesses. You can come in any day we are open to take Diagnostic Test as long as you start the test at least 3 hours before we close. Questions from the test are used throughout the lessons as teaching tools; however, we do not review this test with you. You haven’t learned our strategies yet, so we just want to see where you are.

Diagnostic Test 2 – It’s time to check your skills.

Following all your lessons, you will take a full-length test to put the strategies you’ve learned into practice. The test will be reviewed in the last class session. As you review the test, you’ll learn about your strengths and weaknesses, ways you can improve, and strategies you may have overlooked. Students then have the opportunity to attend workshops to hone their skills and further master the material.

Workshops

  • Each workshop is a 1-2 hour instructor-led practice session.
  • The are interactive sessions, which will provide practice for each section of the test and review test-taking strategies.
  • Can be scheduled at your convenience. We recommend one workshop per week until you reach your goal. Workshops are offered year-round.

Practice Tests

Practice tests give you the opportunity to practice everything you’ve learned in a real testing environment. You can take a test any day we are open, but you must start the test at least 4 hours before we close in order to complete it. You can start taking practice tests after you’ve gotten a few lessons under your belt, so that you can begin putting your strategies to good use. They’re a great way to see where you stand and how far you still need to go.

Test Reviews

We all learn from our mistakes…that’s what a test review is all about. You need to schedule a test review which allows you the opportunity to see what problems you missed – whether you made a simple mistake, or you find yourself struggling with a particular topic.

Vocabulary Development

The vocabulary lab offers a chance to review anytime we are open. The lab exercises will test your knowledge and give you more words to study, with over 50 units in all.
