We believe that test prep is all about the methods, not a student’s intelligence. Anyone can reach a perfect score if they follow the right procedure and put in the work. We focus on using smart testing strategies, good note taking, rigorous practice, and time management to help students achieve their best scores. We also believe parents are an integral part of supporting students through the test prep process and keep our parents in the loop by inviting them to class and sending email summaries of classes if parents cannot attend.
For SAT/ACT, classes are typically 1.5 hours at a time, weekly. Classes are held in person at our office in Santa Clara or online via Skype. We assign 1.5 hours of homework per class. All our classes are private, one-on-one instruction.
During our first class, we will produce a customized learning plan and timeline of how long we think your student needs tutoring for, what score goals to aim for, and how long we will spend working on different topics. Typically, we work on one section at a time of the SAT/ACT before moving onto the next to ensure a student fully masters the skills and concepts necessary for a section. At the end, we will review to ensure that the student retains all necessary information.

Understanding why you made a mistake and what went wrong in the process are just as important as understanding how to fix the mistake. Students reflect with teachers on how their new actions and behaviors will avoid mistakes from before.
From day 1, we create a clear long-term plan so students know where we are going and what our expectations are. Students take detailed notes, keeping track of tips and learnings for review and to keep parents in the know.
Both the prep process and test day can be stressful! We work with students on stress and time management skills to make the process positive and productive.
Students do extensive homework to practice and refine the learnings from their sessions. This includes targeted practice drills as well as full practice tests.
Schedule appointments with us on demand. We can focus on specific topics, or form a plan for how you can improve your score long term. We respond to all emails within 24 hours.

I took the ACT 2 times before and was stuck around 32. I wanted to get to 35+. Just when I had given up, I found Angela. She is really motivating. I felt like my score was stuck before but she was able to quickly pinpoint errors that were easy to fix. Even after our first session, I already felt like she made a huge difference.
