FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Students in our 6-Week Flagship Courses meet twice a week for 3 hours with a Prep Expert Instructor and take a self-proctored full-length exam once a week for 4 hours. During the 3-hour classes, Prep Expert Instructors teach students new test prep methods, demonstrate how to master every possible test question, and answer questions from students regarding the previous practice exam and homework. During the 4-hour practice exam simulating test-day conditions, Prep Expert students learn how to build the stamina and confidence they need for exceptional performance on the actual exam by applying the knowledge they have been learning in the classes to official test questions. Following this proven structure, many students see score improvements every week!

Our 6-Week Flagship Courses typically start at $999, which works out to $16 per hour for course time. Please note that we do have dynamic prices, and they may rise due to demand and start date; therefore, we recommend enrolling as early as possible to get the lowest price!

We understand that students occasionally miss a couple of classes or tests during their course, or even start the course a week late. Students in our online courses can view recordings of the classes they missed. Please note that a certain amount of missed class time may void the guarantee associated with your course. To learn more, please visit our Terms of Service.

The answer to this question is as soon as possible. We find that students who take our classes as freshmen or sophomores typically get the highest SAT or ACT scores, go to the best colleges, and win the most scholarships. It’s also beneficial to take an SAT course before October of your child’s junior year so that they score high on the PSAT in order to become a National Merit Finalist (equivalent to $100,000+ in college scholarships). In addition, our courses not only teach students how to become better at the SAT and ACT, but also how to become better standardized test-takers in general. The strategies students learn in our courses will help them on the SAT, ACT, PSAT, AP Exams, SAT Subject Exams, State High School Standardized Exams, GRE, GMAT, MCAT, LSAT, etc.

We have hand-selected a small group of highly qualified instructors who have mastery teaching Prep Expert Perfect-Score Strategies℠. All Prep Expert Instructors must score in the 99th percentile of the test that they teach so that only absolute masters of the exam are teaching your student. Our instructors also need to have significant previous teaching and/or tutoring experience and be very gifted, dynamic teachers. Accolades of our instructor group include having degrees from Harvard, Yale, and MIT, achieving perfect SAT and ACT scores, and having advanced graduate degrees (PhDs, MDs, JDs, MBAs, etc.). Our elite, experienced instructors generate incredible SAT and ACT results for our students!

We conduct SAT and ACT prep courses both online and at select in-person locations. The majority of parents enroll their students in our online courses. To see if there are any Prep Expert courses are running at an in-person location near you, look under “Course Location” on the applicable SAT or ACT search pages or call us at 1-877-345-7737 to ask!

Traditionally, students better at problem-solving questions should take the SAT and students better at content-based questions should take the ACT. However, with the redesign of the SAT in March of 2016, both the SAT and ACT are more similar than ever. Therefore, it does not matter which exam your student takes. Colleges and universities do not prefer one exam over the other. One advantage to preparing for the SAT is that it will also prepare students for the PSAT that is administered in October of their junior year, which can qualify them for National Merit scholarships!

We offer some of the the best score guarantees in the industry. If your child’s SAT score does not go up by at least 200 points after fully completing a 6-Week Flagship SAT Prep Course, or if your child's ACT score does not up by at least 4 points after fully completing a 6-Week Flagship ACT Prep Course, we will refund 100% of your money! Please see our terms for full details.

Our online classes are taught in a virtual classroom program that is live over the internet. The instructor and a whiteboard are visible. The students will view a lesson that is identical to a regular classroom with a teacher at the front of the room drawing on the board. Students can use the chat box to interact with the instructor and other students. In addition, the entire class is recorded and for future viewing if students cannot attend a session or need additional review. Please see our terms for full details.
