Mock tests are an integral aspect of comprehensive test preparation.
Your first SAT and ACT mock tests are totally free for the public. If you want to take more mock tests with us after your freebies, the cost is $40 per test.
If you register for any of our classes or tutoring, you get unlimited free mock tests for the rest of your life.
All Mock Tests include a detailed score report pinpointing your strengths and weaknesses.
The most effective and flexible method of test preparation. Fully customized sessions, targeting exactly what you need, using the most powerful teaching methods anywhere. We'll match you with the perfect tutor. Available in Durham, Raleigh, or on Skype -- anywhere in the world.
We are very confident in our process. Private tutoring packages of 10, 20, or 30 hours all come with guaranteed score increases of 2-5 points on the ACT, or 150-250 points on the SAT, depending on number of hours and the experience level of your tutor.
