How much tutoring do you recommend for standardized test prep?
If your student has official scores below 30 on the ACT and/or 1400 on the SAT, we recommend five months of consistent tutoring with sessions occurring once a week (approximately 30 hours of tutoring). Each session is 1.5 hours.

What is the concept review phase?
Does your child know how to punctuate non-essential clauses, identify dangling modifiers, complete the square of a quadratic function, or rationalize the denominator of an imaginary number? The new SAT is very concept-heavy. Without dedicated comprehensive review of all the concepts on the test, an easy or medium question can seem hard simply because of a lack of familiarity. Therefore, we commit an appropriate amount of time to learning and reviewing all of the relevant concepts prior to engaging in practice tests. The concept review phase is thorough and absolutely necessary.
How does scheduling work?
Consistency is key! We recommend students pick a day and time that they can commit to for the full arrangement. Scheduling will be agreed upon by management, the tutor, and the student/parents. We will help you strategically pick two test dates that align with the tutoring arrangement. If you know you are going to miss a session, it is imperative that you alert your tutor 24 hours prior and reschedule the session as soon as possible.
