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, 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/test-taking strategies, and relevant exercises/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-on-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-on-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

We prepare upcoming grad students for their GRE, GMAT, LSAT, MCAT, and MTEL exams. We custom-design each program to fit your specific needs, address problem areas, and create a rigorous plan of attack so you go into test day prepared and confident.


Does your child need an experienced ISEE instructor? We’ve been tutoring the ISEE test since 1999. Experienced ISEE tutors build student confidence and effectively prepare them 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.

Simulated Tests

Our simulated tests help to eliminate students’ test anxiety by giving 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.


Is your child getting ready to take the SSAT test? Need an experienced SSAT tutor to help guide your student each step of the way? Since 1999, we have helped students prepare for ALL levels of the SSAT test. Experienced tutors know what materials to use, how much homework to assign, and what strategies to teach. Experience matters when it comes to preparing for ultra-competitive tests like the SSAT.

Test Prep Selector (ACT/SAT)

The Prepped and Polished Test Prep Selector ACT/SAT Hybrid Test is our proprietary formula that best determines which test fits your student best! Worked and reworked over the past 15 years, it is the most comprehensive ACT/SAT Hybrid test on the market. It was created to predict whether your child will be more successful taking the ACT or the SAT (or, in rare cases, if your child would be better off taking both).

We’re here to help.

We at Prepped and Polished help students in Massachusetts, across the USA and around the world get a professional edge in the classroom with subject specific tutoring

At Prepped and Polished, we help students of every skill level and age group, as well as those with various neurodiverse traits, reach their full academic potential while fostering lasting confidence and instilling strategies that can be applied throughout their schooling and professional careers. Unlike most traditional extra help sessions that take place in a crowded classroom, we hold our K-12 academic tutoring sessions in a one-on-one setting to give your child the individualized attention they need to thrive.

We understand that even families who recognize the importance of academic tutoring for their child often forgo it due to logistical challenges like busy schedules and transportation complications. We address this reality by offering a range of flexible attendance options. In addition, we hold our in-person sessions at our Newton, Natick, Wellesley or Sudbury, Massachusetts offices. There is also an option where our tutors can travel to your home and conduct in-house sessions for your convenience. Sessions can even be attended remotely using face-to-face video conferencing and live screensharing software. These options can be combined and adjusted as you see fit.

We take a completely personalized approach to K-12 academic tutoring. Following an initial meeting with you and your child, we pair them with a tutor who can cater to their specific learning style and is compatible with their unique personality. From there, we craft a course of study designed to fortify their current curriculum, sharpen existing strengths and directly address any areas that can be improved upon. The Prepped and Polished team includes professional educators and graduates from some of the most elite schools in the nation including Harvard, Columbia, Dartmouth, Brown, Vassar, Duke, the University of Michigan and MIT. These accomplished individuals bring valuable personal insights acquired over their academic and professional careers to every tutoring session.

No matter what area of studies your child needs assistance with, you can count on our team of professionals at Prepped and Polished to help them foster content familiarity, improve test scores and build lasting confidence. We specialize in subject specific tutoring for topics like math (arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, calculus, statistics, and more), science (biology, chemistry, physics, earth science, physiology, anatomy, and more), languages (Spanish, French, Latin, German, Korean, Chinese, Farsi and more), history (US and world, sociology, psychology and more), and English (writing, essay editing, critical reading, grammar review, vocabulary, literature, and more).
