Which One-on-One ACT / SAT Prep Option is Best for Me?

Are you looking for a blend of instructional methods, or do you prefer consistent one-on-one work with a coach?

If you engage most easily with a variety of forms of instruction, Dynamic Prep is perfect for you. This 12-lesson course uses on-demand video lessons and small-group practice test review sessions to supplement a consistent spine of one-on-one meetings with an expert test-prep coach. Dynamic Prep truly gives you the best of both worlds, combining a mix of pedagogical settings with the knowledge that you’re never more than a week away from a session with one of our test sensei.

But if you’re looking for one-on-one instruction all day, every day…

Do you prioritize flexibility or uniformity in your approach to one-on-one instruction?

If you prefer a more flexible approach, Elite Prep is absolutely the way to go. You’ll schedule one-on-one sessions with members of our team of test ninjas at the days and times of your choosing, and you’re free to work with one tutor from start to finish or switch it up as you go; it’s entirely up to you. You can choose between a package of 7 sessions and a package of 10 sessions; because you’re paying in advance, you’ll save $50 per session either way. Plus, if you pick the 10-session bundle, we’ll add a credit for an 11th session to your account at no additional charge!

If you value consistency in both scheduling and teaching style, Premier Prep was designed for you. Choose your tutor either by reviewing your options on the site or by consulting with one of our Program Coordinators via chat or phone, then reserve a spot on your chosen coach’s roster and get rolling.
