We are responding to our community’s precautions for COVID-19 with solutions for families under quarantine or in isolation.

  • We are still providing tutoring and homework support for students continuing their education with online courses.
  • Many students don’t have regular access to a computer for teleschooling or similar solutions to quarantine. We can design a curriculum, personalized just for your individual child or children, for you to follow at home to help them from falling behind in school.
  • Many parents are already home-schooling. Many more are considering it. We can help with home-schooling with information, resources, and learning plans that meet standards of boards of education across the U.S.
  • We are temporarily reducing fees for test prep and college counseling to only $80 per hour.

You’ve put in the hours at school. You’ve put in the work. You know this. You got this.

But ACT, SAT, PSAT — college admissions tests, college essays — these are the most important tests you’ve ever taken in your life. Their results determine what schools will admit you, what degree programs will accept you, what scholarships you’re eligible for, and more.

Get ready for Test-Taking with ACT prep, SAT prep, and more

Our SAT prep classes and ACT prep classes in San Diego help you master what’s on the tests and, just as important, how to take them and other standardized tests.

Because no two students are the same, with the same interests and ambitions, we personalize your ACT and SAT test prep based on your future academic pursuits and what’s right for you.

Enroll in a complete ACT or SAT prep course or take ACT/SAT prep classes only for the areas you need

Colleges and universities here in San Diego and across the U.S. accept both ACT and SAT test admissions. We advise you on the best test for you and your academic goals.

SAT test prep is focused more in language arts, for example, with an overall concentration on logic and reasoning. ACT test prep, however, might be better for students in advanced math and science.

You may think you only need help in certain areas. You’re solid with math and science, say, but reading and writing is a little wobbly. We can recommend the best ACT test prep classes in its subject areas (English, Math, Reading, Science) and the best SAT test prep classes in its subject areas (Reading, Writing and Language, Math With and Without Calculator).

Compete for National Merit Scholarships with the PSAT

PSAT test prep gives high-school sophomores and juniors a preview of how to take tests, like the later SAT and ACT, to assess performance. Plus high scorers on the PSAT are eligible for National Merit Scholarships.

In 2019, 30 students from here in San Diego County were awarded scholarships of $2,500 each. So don’t think of the PSAT as just a “trial run" for the next year’s SAT and ACT — think of it as an opportunity to earn money for your future.

Learn better and score higher on classroom tests, standardized tests, and more

Test-taking in college and the high-school years before college is intense. That’s because the goals are a little different. These tests measure what you know as a student now, in San Diego — but they’re also designed to predict your performance in a world of possibilities.

Our prep classes for reading and writing tests, as well as for math and college math placement, get you ready for them. We give you a comprehensive review of the subject areas you need, and we also show you how to apply these techniques in more specific areas like science or business administration.
