ADVANCED PLACEMENT AND SAT SUBJECT TEST PREP

Our approach to AP Exams and SAT Subject Tests relies on finding the perfect balance between reviewing content and honing test strategy. Many of the test-taking techniques that our tutors are masters of are extremely effective on these tests, but content necessarily makes up a more significant part of preparation here than it does for many other assessments.

Because of that, our tutors only qualify to work on these tests if they have extensive knowledge of the specific exam and its content; many even own graduate degrees in the relevant subject area. Your tutor will be an expert, and he or she will ensure that you go into test day feeling like an expert as well.

LOCATIONS

In-person tutoring is available for the SAT Subject Tests and AP Exams throughout the greater Boston, New York, and Philadelphia metropolitan areas. It is also available in-person at our tutoring center at the Boston Sports Institute in Wellesley, MA.

Online tutoring is available worldwide. Sessions take place using Lessonspace, an easy to use distance-learning platform that allows the student and tutor to share screens, videos, documents, collaborative whiteboards, and more. 

PRICING

Our one-on-one tutoring programs come in two varieties, with our most experienced and in-demand tutors billed at the higher of the two rates, and with both varieties offered at a 10% discount for online-only programs. We customize our work to the unique needs of each student, so we require no upfront commitment of hours. You pay only for the sessions you schedule, and you are billed only after those sessions have been completed.  There are no fees for changing or cancelling an appointment so long as any changes are made more than 24 hours in advance.

About the tests

Advanced Placement classes give students the chance to take college-level courses, master college-level content, and earn college credit while still in high school. College Board offers almost 40 different AP courses in a variety of subject areas, and most American high schools offer some number of those to their students. Every AP course has a corresponding exam, which is administered at the end of the term, and most colleges and universities will offer credit only to students who achieve a certain score on the relevant AP exam.

The SAT Subject Tests are a collection of 20 hour-long subject-specific tests that focus on content covered in classes traditionally offered to high school students throughout the United States. The results of these tests are used in the college application process in a variety of ways, with many schools requiring the submission of two different SAT Subject Test scores along with any application. Preparation for the SAT Subject Tests is typically done over the course of four to six weeks and involves two full-length mock tests, and most students take each Subject Test no more than twice. Learn more here.
