What does our ACT program look like?

The total number of sessions per student will vary based on their individual abilities. We welcome all new ACT students to take a free diagnostic practice test with us prior to tutoring in order to gauge their strengths and weaknesses. Based on those results we will recommend a plan for your student. Most students will have completed 8-10 verbal (1 hour) sessions and 8-10 math (1 hour) sessions prior to their first official ACT. However, the best way to know what set up would be best for your specific student, is to call us…any information you can give us will help in our determining what type of program would be a best fit.

How do you know if your student should take a Subject Test?

Use this link to see which schools: require, accept, or consider within the application process these tests.

SAT Subject tutoring is similar to the General SAT and ACT tutoring. Students still meet for one hour appointments. The number of appointments will be dependent on the student and what factors they bring to the table: AP class, Honors Class, etc.

Call us, and we can help set up a plan!


GRE and GMAT

GRE and GMAT Tutoring is available for one-on-one tutoring.

Students would meet with a Verbal Tutor and a Quantitative Tutor. The number of hours a student meets with the tutor(s) is very subjective; at this point in their academic career they may be very strong in one area vs. another. The best way to decipher how much time would be needed is to first complete a practice test prior to coming to the center.

Please use these links to familiarize yourselves with each test respectively.
