How Improvement Packages Work
Instead of paying for tutoring hours, pay for results. With the help of a SmartyPrep Certified Tutor, your student will prepare for up to 3 consecutive SATs or ACTs until his or her score reaches (or surpasses) one of our package point thresholds. Each package terminates as soon as your student reaches or exceeds the point improvement threshold. If your student falls short of the package’s improvement threshold after three tests, you will be reimbursed $20/point for every point below the threshold on the SAT and $666/point for every point below the threshold on the ACT, given that your student remains package eligible.
Eligibility Requirements
Students whose diagnostic score is between 1050 and 1250 (SAT) or 22 and 27 (ACT) are eligible for our score improvement package. Students must take our free 1-hour cognitive assessment before we commit to the package guarantee. Students whose cognitive assessments indicate a need for accommodations (ie extra time) must seek and be approved for the appropriate testing accommodations recommended before an improvement guarantee tutoring package can commence. All agreed upon test sittings must include the recommended testing accommodations.

Our one-on-one test prep curriculum has three phases:

Phase I (Diagnostic Review): 1 -2 sessions

Overview of the test structure, concepts, and test-taking strategies

Phase II (Concept Review): 1 – 3 months

3-4 hours of homework each week

Thorough breakdown and analysis of each concept in isolation through targeted homework (Streamline’s test prep books and SmartyPrep). In addition to reviewing previously learned concepts, students will also be taught some higher level concepts from the ground up.




Phase III (Practice Tests): 2 – 3 months

Now it is the time for students to progress from awareness to mastery. During this phase, students should expect to complete one timed full-length practice test per week. Completed tests will be reviewed each week during the subsequent tutoring session.

*In addition to the time spent in session, Streamline students are expected to complete 3-4 hours of homework every week.

*We see students through at least two official tests — the first after completing the concept review phase and the final upon completion of the entire curriculum. Students should attend at least one proctored practice test prior to each official test.

*Tutoring sessions typically take place once per week and each session is 1.5 hours. Sessions can take place at either location (Roland Park or Owings Mills) or virtually.
