Test Preparation

Our test preparation services cover:


The focus of our ACT tutoring is to get you ready for test day. We first analyze your baseline score, then determine the best plan for YOU from now until test day. If you don’t have a baseline ACT score, then we’ll give you a simulated practice test to determine your strengths and weaknesses for each section. You and your experienced Prepped and Polished tutor will go over your previous homework assignments, then work on test content (math, science, grammar, reading, essay), pacing strategies, test-taking strategies, and relevant exercises and drills. All parents get a detailed session report at the end of each session. When your student goes into the ACT knowing how to answer each question confidently, then we’ve done our job.

AP Exam

We tutor our students one-to-one for all of their AP exams so they go into test day knowing what to expect. At Prepped and Polished we help your child deliver an optimal performance on test-day with unique one-to-one AP exam preparation. Our calculated test-taking strategy begins before the first day of classes. We consult with you and your child to determine what AP course or courses will best exemplify their unique talents and build a strong foundation for the next stage of their academic career.

Grad School Tests

Does your child need an experienced ISEE instructor? We’ve been tutoring the ISEE test since 1999. Experienced ISEE tutors get students best-prepared for the ISEE. Your child will go into test day knowing what to expect and how to tackle each question on the ISEE test. We offer both online ISEE tutoring and in-person ISEE tutoring.

Our one-on-one, custom-designed SAT programs are rigorous, thorough, and tailor-fit to meet the individual student’s needs. We first get a baseline score, then design a plan of attack to ensure the student is continuously working on problem areas, learning key strategies, and doing drills, exercises, and homework assignments to ensure content mastery. Each student gets custom-designed homework assignments consisting of practice test sections, relevant practice drills, and vocabulary. After each session, the parent will get a detailed session report. Your tutor will be Prepped and TrainedSM certified. Our tutors are knowledgeable, reliable, relatable, motivational, and communicate effectively with both student and parents.

SAT Subject Tests

Since 1999 we have prepared students for their SAT subject tests. The subject tests are one hour long and you can take up to three of them in one sitting. Do you need a lot of tutoring in preparation for your subject tests? Probably not as many sessions as needed for your SAT program. But if you score low initially and need to learn more content found on your subject test, we will increase the number of sessions accordingly to get you Prepped and Polished.

Simulated Tests

Our simulated test day helps to eliminate students’ test anxiety and gives them the confidence of knowing exactly what to expect on test day. You can sign up for a private administration 7 days per week or sign up for a group testing date, which occurs on the first Saturday of each month.
