1-on-1 Test Prep Tutoring

Achieving your full potential on a college admissions exam requires a course of preparation tailored specifically for you

Our exceptional tutors can design a curriculum based upon your skills, abilities, educational background and challenges to create a test prep experience that is efficient, targeted, and effective. Our 1-on-1 tutoring is a perfect solution for students who have intense schedules, unique circumstances, or would benefit from working closely with an encouraging test prep mentor.

Our instructors have a track record of helping students reach their goal scores on a wide variety of standardized exams, including:

  • SAT
  • ACT
  • PSAT
  • SAT Subject Tests

We prepare our students for every aspect of standardized tests, teaching content mastery as well as useful strategies, developing a mistake-proof process, effective pacing and beating test-day anxiety.

1-on-1 Tutoring Packages 

Our 1-on-1 test prep tutoring starts at $130/hour, and we offer discounts for packages of 15 hours or more. A 15-hour package is what we consider to be a comprehensive course that will prepare our students for all aspects of the SAT or ACT. Since most students take the test more than once, many of our students complete more than 15 hours of work over the course of their preparation process (ie. a 15-hour package for the first official test and 4 – 6 hours for the second test). 

There are a lot of factors that go into students’ improvement on the SAT and ACT (student motivation, engagement, bandwidth, timing, etc.), but we’ve seen consistent results through our one-on-one test prep tutoring services. On average, we see a score improvement of at least 1 point on the ACT and 40 points on the SAT for every 5 hours of tutoring a student completes. Thus, we make the following recommendations about how many hours of tutoring you should consider:

  • 5 hours: students targeting improvement of 1+ points on ACT or 40+ points on SAT
  • 10 hours: students targeting improvement of 2+ points on ACT or 80+ points on SAT
  • 15 hours: students targeting improvement of 3+ points on ACT or 120+ points on SAT
  • 20 hours: students targeting improvement of 4+ points on ACT or 160+ points on SAT
  • 25 hours: students targeting improvement of 5+ points on ACT or 200+ points on SAT

Please keep in mind that these are conservative, average improvement levels. Motivated and engaged students are regularly able to exceed these average improvement margins!
