Test Prep

Your Custom-Made Test
Preparation Program
 

Other companies come in with a cookie cutter version of the SSAT & ISEE prep -- not us! We believe that every student is different and that you deserve a flexible system in which to learn. We have some "systematic" lessons that we teach, then we focus on YOUR weaknesses and get your child into the schools of his or her choice!

All of our programs are 100% customizable. If you want more hours, we can do that! If you're running out of time, we'll work with that too.
