SAT and ACT Prep

Most US universities require applicants to take a standardized admissions test.

Alongside school exams, these tests help universities evaluate applicants' academic potential.

There are two admissions tests: the SAT and the ACT. Both are multiple-choice and evaluate students' logic and reasoning

abilities by testing them on core skills (grammar, reading, math, writing and science). Most US universities accept either test.  


Getting the score you need on these tests requires preparation - and starting early is essential!

How we raise your SAT and ACT scores

Tutors. Our tutors are selected by our Senior Tutor, who has taught over 300 SAT and ACT students. They receive weekly training and take a real SAT or ACT once a year to make sure they are on top of any changes the tests' content and structure. 

Lessons. Our lessons are tailored to each student's needs and are highly effective at raising their test scores. Tutors work with students to make a personalised plan that is monitored by our Senior Tutor. We offer individual and group lessons. We limit group lessons to six students to ensure that all students get the individual support they need.

Strategies and techniques. Aside from content, our lessons cover strategies and techniques that are specific to the SAT and ACT. Our tutors train their students to actively and effectively execute these strategies on the tests.

Should I take the SAT or the ACT? 

Good question! Choosing the right exam for you is the first - and perhaps most important - step in your preparation.

The SAT and ACT test the same content, but they have slightly different structures. Neither test is easier than the other,

but one test might be better suited for you. And for some students, the SAT or ACT will be more than just easier… will be a perfect match for their learning styles and abilities.


This is why choosing the right test for you is so important: it means you means you will already be at a comparative advantage when

you start your test prep. So how do you know which test is better suited for you? Here is some information to help you decide

We can also arrange for you to take free diagnostic tests to help you decide which test to take and plan your preparation.
