At College Prep Tutoring, we provide tutoring services for students who are applying to high school, college, and graduate school. 

Our youngest students are preparing for admission to some of the county’s top private/independent schools with the ISEE (Independent School Entrance Exam).  The Bishop's School, Francis Parker, and La Jolla Country Day all require this test.  Some students applying to private high schools will need to take the SSAT (Secondary School Achievement Test).

Students who are planning ahead begin preparing for the PSAT the summer before their sophomore year of high school. 

SAT IIs or the Subject Tests (parents may remember them as Achievement Tests) can be taken in 9th, 10th, or 11th grade... sometimes even in 12th grade. 

SAT and ACT instruction begins in 10th or 11th grade. 

Our greatest success stories come from students who prepared for the SAT the summer before their Junior year.  They took the SAT the first week in October and then the PSAT for the National Merit Scholarship Competition the following week.  These students are relieved to have their SAT completed in the fall of their Junior year and thereby able to concentrate all their energy on their GPA and extracurricular activities.

It is best to take the SAT Subject Tests in May or June of the year in which you are studying the particular subject in school.

College graduates must take the GRE in order to apply to graduate school.  The GRE underwent a major change on August 1, 2011.  Our students have done extremely well on this "new GRE," despite the fact that historically, student scores drop after a test revision. (When the GRE last made updates in 2002, median scores dropped seven points and continued to decline for the next five years.)
.
The GMAT is best for Business School applications, and the LSAT is required for Law School admissions.

Your personal tutor can help you prepare for standardized tests and assist you in the writing and revision of your personal statement.

Our services are customized to you and your needs and we have a flexible schedule because we know you are busy.
