FAQ

We offer customized one-on-one tutoring for many standardized tests. This is either in person or online.

To start the process, please schedule a consultation.

Other than getting to know each other, the immediate goals of that meeting will be to figure out:

what test to take and when to take it
what materials to use
how often tutoring should occur

We’re specialists: All we do is test prep.
We’re experienced: We have been in the tutoring business since 2014 and are priced according to experience level.
Acquiring top talent requires top compensation.

Tutoring session cancellation/rescheduling policy: We require at least 24 hours’ notice for any changes or cancellations – otherwise, we reserve the right to charge you for the full appointment. I realize this may sound strict; however, short-notice changes and cancellations usually mean that we are not able to fill the time slot and we, therefore, lose income. Furthermore, students who would have liked to schedule during that time generally miss out since they don’t know the slot is available.
Working with an independent tutor is the most efficient and effective way to master a high stakes exam because every meeting is customized to you. Whether you’re wicked smart and want to go from the 98th to 99th percentile – or you want help with almost everything – we’ll focus on what you need at all times.
 
Not near us? We’ve worked with people from all over the country using online tools like Skype and Zoom. (Better a good tutor online than a mediocre one in person.)
 
We’ve also helped students with all kinds of different learning disabilities and learning styles.
It’s essential that students are able to accomplish things outside of tutoring sessions so that they can make faster progress. We usually assign about 3 hours of homework per week, which is often best split up into daily 30-minute sessions.
 
Once students come into tutoring, we’ll go over their corrections to test their understanding.
 
Important: It will help your child if you make sure not only that he is working on test prep for the agreed upon time, but also that he has a distraction-free environment. This means no cell phones or other electronic devices, no interruptions, and no T.V. or music. Seriously.

Tutoring is not a common career, so most tutors are working part-time while they finish grad school or look for a “normal” job in their field of interest. This is particularly true of tutors who work for big organizations (Kaplan, The Princeton Review, etc). In fact, the bigger the company or organization, the less likely it is to have veteran tutors.
 
We all have several years of experience and are in this for the long haul.
 
Our greatest value comes from our insight, so we can tell students exactly…
 
what to do
how to do it
and how long to do it for
 
…in the most efficient and effective way possible.
 
With us, students go far beyond just getting questions right. We help them fully understand the concepts behind questions, identify the best methods to use, and recognize takeaways to help with similar questions in the future.
 
It’s our hope that we can not only significantly raise their scores, but also help them feel more confident, decrease their stress about the tests, and in general, make their lives (and yours) a little easier.
