With hard work and our help, your best score is within reach.

Four Simple Steps. One great score.

Select Your Tutor

Talk to us in chat to review your options, schedule a call with one of our Program Coordinators to discuss your needs in detail, or skip all that and select a tutor directly using the roster below. A full bio, including all areas of specialization, is available on each tutor's public homepage.

Reserve a Roster Spot

To ensure that every student gets the attention they deserve, each tutor only takes on a limited number of students at once. Because of this, there is a one-time fee for claiming a roster spot, and it includes the cost of all the materials you will use throughout your program.

Access Your Materials

Next, we'll introduce you to your tutor by email, deliver your first batch of digital materials, and provide you with immediate access to your tutor's private homepage, which includes their calendar, file-sharing system, contact information, and more.

Schedule Your Sessions

Finally, book your first SHSAT prep appointment using your tutor's real-time availability. Schedule single sessions and pay as you go, or book multiple sessions in advance – it's entirely up to you. And if you ever need to reschedule, you can do so at no charge with 24 hours' notice using the same simple system.

Talk with a Test Prep Expert

The application process can feel like a whirlwind: you’ve got a lot to think about, and things can move very quickly. Fortunately, our Program Coordinators are experienced, knowledgeable, and ready to help – whether this is your first time through the process or your fifth, our team will help you select the prep program that best fits your goals, timeline, and budget.
