Test Prep

SAT vs. ACT

Intelligentsia takes a different approach to standardized test prep than most tutoring companies. We start by gaining a thorough understanding of the student’s skills by introducing strategy and content for both the SAT and ACT. Then we determine which test will be the best platform for the student’s strengths, and proceed by teaching strategy, pacing and content based on the numerous mock tests our students take. Our sessions hone test-takers’ instincts, allowing our students to make quick judgments with confidence and accuracy.  Moreover, all of our test prep tutors are adept subject tutors, uniquely enabling them to bridge the gap between classroom comprehension and testing skills.
