We offer our expert test prep tutoring for $160 per hour and academic math tutoring for $120 per hour, which is automatically billed at the end of each session. There is no commitment to big packages, so you’ll never pay for test prep tutoring your child doesn’t need.

What’s the difference between the QAS and the SAS? Which should I order?2021-02-16T22:19:55-05:00

The short answer is that the QAS is the more useful of the two, and you should always order it when possible. For a more detailed answer, check out the blog post we wrote answering this question.

When do students typically meet?2021-02-16T22:17:49-05:00

Session Frequency

In the vast majority of our programs, students meet with their tutors once per week.

Session Times

When sessions are scheduled is dependent on student-tutor availability, but tutors typically meet with students after school on weekday afternoons and evenings. Our doors are closed on Sundays to give our tutors a day of rest and the option to worship if they choose.

What is the difference between the SAT and ACT? Which test better suits my child?2021-02-16T22:14:44-05:00

The differences between the SAT and ACT have been stark in the past, but over the past 5 years, the tests have become very similar. The ACT is a faster-paced test. However, there are some other more nuanced distinctions between the two. We wrote a nice blog article about it.

Every student is different and some students perform better on the SAT, while others excel on the ACT. Before recommending a program to any student, we always have them take SAT and ACT diagnostic tests. Contact us to find out the next available diagnostic test dates and reserve your student’s spot.

Where are you located and for what areas do you provide SAT tutoring?2021-02-16T22:09:18-05:00

Our tutoring offices are located at 230 Sugartown Road, Suite 20, Wayne, PA. We provide tutoring to any student able to travel to our office or able to meet virtually through our video-conferencing platform.

Do you offer tutoring for Academic subjects?2021-02-16T22:05:22-05:00

We believe that truly great businesses excel at doing one thing well. Our mission is simply to be the best ACT and SAT tutoring company in Wayne and on the Main Line, which means we will stick to what we do best—SAT and ACT test prep!

Do you come to the house?2021-02-16T22:02:56-05:00

The vast majority of our ACT and SAT tutoring takes places in our offices in Wayne, PA. We prefer sessions in the office environment since it offers a distraction-free space that allows students to remain engaged and focused throughout the entirety of their sessions. If your student is unable to come to the office, we do offer in-home test prep for an additional fee per session.

Test prep is expensive! Why is that?2021-02-16T22:01:47-05:00

Perspective is important. When you compare the investment in test prep to the investment in a chicken sandwich, it is expensive indeed! However, a chicken sandwich will not get your child into Swarthmore with a $100,000 scholarship. All joking aside, maximizing your child’s test scores will increase the scope of colleges they are admitted to and increase their merit awards, the value of which can range from $10,000- $200,000.

Do you offer group SAT prep classes?2021-02-16T22:00:22-05:00

Our President’s first test prep job was working for a big-box national chain teaching classes of 15 students. That experience both inspired his love of test prep, and left him with the conviction that group classes would never be as effective as individualized test prep tutoring. Since then, we have stayed true to our mission of only offering 1-on-1 SAT and ACT prep.

Do you offer a score increase guarantee?2021-02-16T21:58:50-05:00

Nothing in life is a guarantee! We know that’s not a satisfying answer, but it’s an honest one. If your child puts in the work, his or her score will increase. Our promise to you is that our instructors will provide your child with all of the tools necessary to raise his or her SAT scores.

What kind of increase can I expect to see in my student’s scores after SAT prep?2021-02-16T21:56:57-05:00

If a student is dedicated to their SAT or ACT prep program and puts in the work, her scores will improve. Exactly how much they will improve depends on the student’s baseline scores, ability, and effort. A 50 point increase from a 1550 to a 1600 seems impressive to some, while a 200 point increase from 900 to 1100 might seem unimpressive to others. No matter what your student is capable of achieving, our instructors goal is to help them reach their greatest potential.

There are many test prep tutoring services around Wayne, PA. What makes your service different?2021-02-16T21:50:27-05:00

We eat, sleep, and breathe test prep.

That’s why our tutors sit for the official tests at least once a year. That means they show up at a high school on a Saturday morning, and take the SAT and ACT along with hundreds of teenage students.

Our standards are higher than the competition’s.

To be hired, every tutor on our team has to receive scores of 1550+ on the SAT and 34+ on the ACT. Once hired, tutors undergo a rigorous 8-week training process which ensures that each instructor is equipped with the tools they need to maximize student success.

Aren’t the SAT and ACT becoming obsolete as more colleges switch become test-optional?2021-02-16T21:45:20-05:00

Not exactly. The latest research on test optional policies suggests that most students who do not submit scores are disadvantaged compared to those who do. Students submitting scores within or above a college’s 50th percentile score range give themselves a competitive advantage. Who are the real winners by colleges going test-optional? Colleges. More information about this here.
