Test Prep Classes in the Boston Area

Good preparation is one of the key factors in the outcome of standardized tests such as the SAT and ACT.  Research has shown that more time spent with test preparation can increase the final score. Equally, retaking a test, generally will results in an improvement of the score.

The goals of most test prep are:

  • Comprehensive Material Review
  • Improve Memorization Techniques
  • Improve Test Strategy
  • Improve Time Management 
  • Improve Confidence
  • Reduce Anxiety

Many Test Prep courses offer guarantees for score improvement.  For example, Princeton Review has a one course that offers a 1400+ SAT score guarantee and another course based on Private Tutoring with a guaranteed score of 1500+.  These can be helpful tools when applying to competitive colleges but they come at a price.

Prep Courses are offered in different styles with different potential for score improvement and price tags.  

Prep with Books  This is the least expensive way and has served many students well in the past.  There are some advantages of this method  like cost, portability, ability to take notes and no time limitations. The cost of a good SAT book is about $30.- Students who are self-motivated can do well with this method.

Self-Paced Online Prep  Self-Paced Online test-prep courses are similar to book-based prep with the difference that they use software and video technology to make learning easier and more fun. Students who are self-motivated can do well with this method. The average cost for a self paced online course is around $150.

Live-Online Prep  These courses offer online classes with actual teacher/student interaction.  They offer 10-20 live classes on evenings and/or weekends. These courses are best for students who benefit from live interaction and who need the extra motivation a class offers. The average cost of these courses are around $500 to a $1000 

On-Site Test Prep These courses take place in an actual classroom and offer the benefit of a class-like environment with student/teacher interaction.  Many of these classes offer additional benefits which are similar to online courses. In the Boston area Princeton Review offers on-site prep for a number of courses.  The cost of these classes are between $500 and $1,000.

Private Tutoring Private tutoring offers personalized attention either live-online or on-site.  The cost of these classes ranges between $100-$400 an hour. In the Boston area Princeton Review offers both online and on-site private tutoring in Newton Centre.
