Test Prep

Our tutors are ready to help you prepare for such tests as the SAT, ACT, SSAT/ISEE, GRE and MCAT. Besides our familiarity with the test materials and administration, we have a complex understanding of the psychology behind each test. We also understand people and how your individual learning style and personality affect your approach to test preparation.

We begin with a detailed assessment of you, from your goals and dreams to your individual strengths and weaknesses, as well as any personal challenges that could prevent you from performing your best. We will then work with you to develop a personalized test prep plan, which we will refine and adapt as you work your way through the process.

Subject Tutoring

Our highly trained tutors provide expert assistance with more than 50 individual subjects, from algebra to calculus, Greek to Japanese, and art history to political philosophy. Whether you need short term help to get ready for an exam, or ongoing assistance with your chosen major, we will be by your side. Your tutor will assess your current skills and challenges, and design a customized study plan that uses a variety of materials and methods to ensure your complete understanding of the topic. The goal is to help you transition into learning on your own, and we will provide you with the skills, knowledge, and tools to make that goal a reality.

Admissions Consulting

Whether you are a first-time college applicant or trying to get into the medical school of your dreams, we understand that the admissions process can feel overwhelming. Our admissions consultants are hand-picked from among the best in their field, having spent time on the admissions committees for top schools across the country. They have a deep knowledge of what schools want, and understand how to guide you through the process.

In addition, our admissions consultants understand how important it is to find just the right fit. We will get to know you as a person, and help you brainstorm a list of schools that fit you holistically. When you are ready to begin applying, we will help you frame your personality, experiences, and interests into a cohesive narrative.

Academic Coaching

A gap between actual abilities and performance in the classroom is unfortunately very common. Some people do not test well. Some learn differently. Some struggle with note taking, time management, or organization. Whatever your individual challenges, academic coaching can bridge the gap between abilities and performance.

Your academic coach will work with you to identify and unravel your current classroom challenges. The next step is to create a customized plan for addressing the underlying issues and boosting your performance. This process may take time, but we will stick by you for as long as it takes.

As you begin to implement your new plan, your academic coach will observe and provide feedback. As you learn and grow, your plan will adapt to include even higher-level skills that will propel you to excellence.
