Our mission at College Prep Tutoring is to help you achieve your dream of getting into the best college or university you possibly can. We will help you prepare for your standardized tests and will be happy to assist you in planning, writing, and polishing your applications.

The founder of College Prep Tutoring, Kathryn Adelstein, has been preparing students for standardized tests since 1996. Test-taking is a skill that can be taught and scores can improve dramatically through coaching and supervised practice. 

Kathryn began her success with Kaplan Test Prep. After scoring above the 95th percentile in all sections of the GRE (math, verbal, analytical), she began teaching for Kaplan. She soon became one of the most sought-after instructors for private tutoring in the state of New York. Now that she has returned to San Diego, she is looking forward to helping you get into a top university or college.

At College Prep Tutoring, we prefer to work individually with students. A one-to-one program enables students to focus on building their strengths and overcoming their weaknesses. Each student will have his or her own customized strategies for test preparation and Test Day. 

A San Diego native, Kathryn attended The Bishop’s School in La Jolla, CA. She received her undergraduate degree at the University of Pennsylvania and her graduate degree in history at the University of Wisconsin
