Test Preparation

Students Taking Exams

"Don't prep - you'll get an awesome score!"

-Nobody, ever


Does your student need support preparing for standardized tests like the PSAT, SSAT, ISEE, SAT, or ACT?


I can help. My student's score improvements range from 100 to 350 points. 


​I make your student's strengths show through private, one-on-one test preparation.  Online private lessons offer both scheduling and content flexibility, for students managing test anxiety, students needing to even out or level up lopsided scores, students needing specific academic coaching, or students needing very specific question-type coaching.


Repetition leads to retention: I work with your student, tailoring my curriculum, and creating a study plan with timelines, homework, and weekly timed-testing practice, using current and historical exams. Every student is looking for highly individual scores for the scholarships they want or get admission into the school of their choice.


This is a three-month process: if you’re ready to put in the time, we can get your target score. 


Previous students have utilized the problem solving, critical reasoning, and effective communication skills they’ve learned from their work with me both for standardized testing and in classes, achieving grades and scores that got them accepted into their top choice universities.

If you have any questions, contact me.


The trick with any standardized test is: get more answers right.


We get more answers right.

“J had gotten 1260 on his SAT, but we told him unless he got a scholarship, his top choice college was out of reach.  After studying with you for only two weeks, he bumped it up to 1330!  He got the $10,000 honors scholarship!”
