I have been very impressed with both the content that they are covering and the cheerful encouragement that Julia has been receiving from her tutor! As a remote parent of a child in boarding school, sometimes I don’t always have a clear picture of what is going on, so it was a welcome surprise to be able to observe this interaction.

When students begin their college application process, they face a veritable alphabet soup of intimidating exams, among them the PSAT, SAT, SAT subject test, AP tests, ACT, ACT Aspire, TOEFL, and TOEFL IBT. As schools compete to attract prospective students and admissions offices are flooded with applications, college applicants must deftly navigate an increasingly complex landscape of college entrance exam requirements and alternatives.

For students applying to elite schools, having excellent grades isn’t enough; they also need high scores on their entrance exams in order to differentiate themselves from the other highly qualified applicants. While a growing number of test-optional schools offer a refreshing alternative, more high schools are mandating that their students complete some form of test preparation. Here’s the hard truth: the majority of colleges, for better or worse, still use test results as a barrier to entry for any student who does not hit the mark.

Now more than ever, students benefit from working from a test-prep expert, someone who can help them navigate all this complexity and keep the exams in perspective. Our instructors have helped students complete thorough preparation to get the scores they need, without interfering with their schoolwork, athletics, and other extracurriculars.
