Test Prep

Our test prep process is efficient, relevant, and effective. It’s tailored not only to the test but also to your unique needs.

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.

Our Results


Jonah increased his SAT I score by

Victoria increased her GRE score by

Jenny increased her SSAT percentile score by

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.”
