F.A.Q.

Most students prefer the convenience of Live Online, but for those in the New York area who want the most immersive experience possible, we offer in-person instruction.

Live Online is done by 2-way video, which literally makes it a virtual classroom complete with a marker board, etc.  To provide the best possible service, it is important for the instructor to be able to see the student(s), their reactions, how well they’re following along, etc.

Students in the New York area who want the most immersive experience possible are welcome to visit us at our location in Midtown Manhattan.

Yes, to both. With any purchase of 20 or more hours of instruction, you needn’t worry about
tracking down what is needed to ace your test. We’ll handle it.

Yes. We’ve had many students with ADHD, and all remained very focused. The most important factor is the instructor— the difference between a top-ranked one who eats, sleeps, and breathes standardized test preparation all day every day, and a rookie who just took a test, is like night and day.

The exact number depends on several factors, such as your current aptitude, the score that you want, and whether you need assistance with only one section of the test or all of them. Most students require 40-60 hours of instruction to fully prepare for a test.

From sheer experience—thousands of students—most prefer 2-hour sessions; the consensus is that 1 hour flies by, but more than 2 is too long.  In terms of frequency, our students generally have 1 to 3 sessions per week, but 2 is most common. Spreading out test preparation at a rate of once per week takes more than twice as long for it to be completed, and is recommended only if keeping up with the homework of 2 sessions per week isn’t feasible.  If there isn’t much time until Test Day, 3 sessions per week is ideal, as long as the student can keep up with the homework.

Four months. However, it can vary based on current aptitude, desired score, and your personal situation. We’ve had some students in school and working in two jobs, others doing nothing besides test prep and babysitting, and everything in between. All have met with success, but the more you’re available for test preparation, the less time it will take.
