Students start with an online proctored quiz to evaluate their existing Math and Verbal skills and complete the course with a practice ACT and SAT. Students leave the course with a far more informed understanding of how to choose between the two tests. Throughout the course, they build math, reading, and writing content knowledge that serves as a foundation for formal test prep.

What Comes Next?
Many students use our essentials program as a launchpad for test prep. We recommend following this course with either customized private test prep tutoring or enrolling in a test prep course aimed at your selected official test date.

Nothing makes us happier than helping our students reach their goals.

In the beginning I was struggling with Verbal and Reading section on tests, but this has helped me learn new techniques and skills to approach English questions on the test. I feel more comfortable already when it comes to ACT and SAT Verbal questions. I liked how we would work through problems together in class and have the opportunity to ask questions as well.

Our instructor was very nice and a good teacher. They provided in-depth explanations with good articulation of the points.

Addison T.10th Grader at British International School of Boston

I liked how we learned by going through the content and then doing practice problems rather than just going straight into it. I find it difficult to learn math over Zoom, so I liked how we did a bunch of it together.
