TEST PREPARATION – SAT / ACT / HSPT / OTHER
 

Whether preparing students for standardized tests (SAT, ACT, HSPT, GRE, GED, CBEST, CAHSEE, etc.), or classroom quizzes and tests, Scholars tutors are experts in helping students understand test content, improve pacing, become more productive in test settings, relieve test anxiety, and achieve higher scores.
SAT & ACT TEST PREPARATION -- 1:1 TUTORING and SMALL-GROUP CLASSES
SAT and ACT test scores are critical elements for consideration by colleges and universities. Applicants may be competing with thousands of others, so every point is important.
We know how to use the best tools to attain higher scores. Our tried-and-true prep program has resulted in improved scores for hundreds of students – making their college aspirations more attainable.

1:1 TUTORING: Through our individual test prep tutoring, we identify and target each student’s weak areas - whether specific subject comprehension, strategy, pacing, or test anxiety.

SMALL CLASSES: SCHOLARS’ unique small-group setting allows our specialized tutors to work closely with each student, addressing challenges, issues and questions as they arise. Students then enter test venues with less anxiety and better understanding of test procedures and strategy, and exit with scores that better represent their true potential.
Included in all our SAT/ACT Prep program is our expert analysis of students’ previous test score reports.
SAT PREP CLASSES
Knowing test strategy is a vital key to success on the SAT test. In our course, specialized Scholars SAT tutors instruct students on test strategy while reviewing subject content within each of the test components – Reading, Writing-Language, Math & Essay. Students prefer our small-group setting and individual attention to their questions and concerns over impersonal, formulaic “chain-store” options.

We will explain the pros and cons to taking the ACT.
