Test Prep FAQ

When should I start SAT/ACT prep?
This can be quite variable - especially since some students require more preparation than others. However, if possible, we recommend starting SAT prep by the summer of the sophomore year to be in time for the PSAT administration during the fall. Scores on the PSAT taken during the junior year will count for National Merit scholarships.

Retaking the SAT: how many times is too many?
Everyone, of course, would like to take this test only once. But retrospective studies have shown that students rarely achieve score increases after taking the SAT three times. You should prepare for the SAT wholeheartedly, with the intention of making your first time your last time.

How many SAT Subject Tests do I need to take?
This is one aspect that varies from college to college. But even highly selective colleges require applicants to take no more than three SAT Subject Tests. Most highly selective schools only require two SAT Subject Tests.

Where are you located?
We offer our services to students across the globe through Skype and Google Hangouts. We currently offer in-person sessions to those living in the greater Houston area.
