Test Prep

Standardized test prep should be efficient and effective. Signet's process is tailored both to the test and your unique needs.

Though the tests may be standardized, students are not! Signet can help you identify and tackle your own personal testing obstacles. Contact us for a free initial consultation.

Studying for standardized tests can feel like a slog: overwhelming, never-ending, and even irrelevant. But testing still plays a key role in the college admissions process, which means students need to do their best. Our tutors help you focus your efforts and set concrete goals so that you spend exactly as much time studying as you need to — no more and no less.


We provide test prep services for just about any standardized test you might take in high school and beyond.

    The Signet Method



    Your tutor will begin by getting to know your goals, strengths, and weaknesses. They will help you identify what you're struggling with - study skills, content, anxiety, or something else.



    Unlike big test prep “factories” that use the same approach for every student, we tailor a study plan just for you and your learning style. You’ll work with the best study materials for your needs, including Signet’s proprietary tools and other materials.



    Your tutor will track your progress, give you feedback, and adapt your study plan to move you up the score ladder step-by-step. Realistic practice experiences will make you 100% ready. Your tutor will stick with you until you’ve met your goals.

    My son had aspirations of attending a top tier university, but his preliminary SAT assessment indicated he had to improve his test-taking skills if he were to reach this goal. Signet customized a lesson plan for him. His tutor correctly assessed his areas for improvement and worked with him one-on-one to strengthen those skills he needed to do well on the SAT. All of my son's hard work paid off in the end: He improved his combined SAT scores by 250 points which helped him gain acceptance into a top 5 nationally ranked university.”
