Standardized Test Prep

Since opening our doors in 1983 as the first company in the world to offer one-on-one tutoring for college entrance exams, Inspirica has been the go-to firm for students aiming for entrance into competitive US colleges and universities. We have worked with every type of student in every academic circumstance and on every type of test, so from staff to tutors, our approach is grounded in the simple fact that each child and family is unique. We have a dedicated team of test experts whose job it is to create the optimal curriculum for each type of program by combining exceptional proprietary tools with carefully curated third-party materials, including a digital testing platform that will allow you and your tutor to assess your performance on a question-by-question basis as you work towards test day. And we believe that how you get a result is as important as the result itself, so our work centers on building the confidence and habits each student needs to meet any challenge head-on.

The Tests We Tutor

ACT

ACT

The ACT is the first of two major tests used by colleges and universities during their admissions processes. Preparation typically begins near the end of a student's sophomore year or during the summer before their junior year, lasts roughly three months, and involves two or three official test dates. Our Agnostic Diagnostic test can help you decide whether the ACT or the SAT is the right test for you.

SSAT

SSAT

The Secondary School Admissions Test
is used for admission to private elementary and secondary schools throughout the United States. Preparation typically begins in the summer or very early fall, lasts three to four months, and involves at least two official test dates, of which one can be a "flex test" taken with a local education consultant.

PSAT

PSAT

The Preliminary SAT is not used during the college admissions process, but students seeking recognition in the annual National Merit Scholarship competition often spend a month or two preparing for the October test to maximize their chances for recognition. Prep therefore usually begins in the late summer or early fall of their junior years.

SAT Subject Tests

SAT Subject Tests

The SAT Subject Tests are a collection of 20 multiple-choice tests on individual subjects typically offered in high schools across the United States. Many colleges and universities require the submission of two or more subject test scores as part of a student's application. Preparation nearly always begins in the spring of the school year in which the student is taking the course, with test dates in late spring or summer.

ISEE

ISEE

The Independent School Entrance Exam is used for admission to private elementary and secondary schools throughout the United States. Preparation typically begins in the summer or very early fall, lasts three to four months, and involves at least two official test dates selected from the ISEE's peculiar "testing seasons" calendar.

SAT

SAT

The SAT is the second of two major tests used by colleges and universities during their admissions processes. As with the ACT, preparation typically begins near the end of a student's sophomore year or during the summer before their junior year, lasts roughly three months, and involves two or three official test dates. Our Agnostic Diagnostic test can help you decide whether the ACT or the SAT is the right test for you.

GRE

GRE

The Graduate Record Examination General Test is used by graduate programs across the United States in their admissions processes. The test involves a mix of math and verbal content that students frequently have not encountered since high school, so the preparation process usually involves a mix of tutoring and self-study. Testing is conducted at private facilities according to each student’s individual schedule, and students usually test multiple times to achieve their maximum scores.

GMAT

GMAT

The Graduate Management Admission Test is used by business schools throughout the United States for admissions. Like the GRE, this test involves material students often have not seen since high school, so preparation often requires a mix of extensive self-study and tutoring. Testing is done on individually scheduled dates and on a computer system that adapts the test to each student’s individual performance.

LSAT

LSAT

The Law School Admission Test is used for admission to law schools throughout the United States. As this is the most difficult of all the standardized tests used for school admissions, preparation tends to be extensive, often lasting six or more months and involving a dozen or more practice tests. Most students test two or three times, with the dates scheduled far in advance on a calendar like those of the SAT and ACT.
