Test Prep Sessions
Advance Academy offers a number of tutoring sessions for test preparation. Contact us for more information!
TOEFL Test Prep
These sessions focus on the skills that will be required for the Test Of English as a Foreign Language. This test is required by high schools and colleges before foreign students may be admitted. The are several components to this test: reading, writing, speaking, and listening. We provide the instruction, strategies, vocabulary, grammar structures, idiomatic expressions, and study guides. We will walk the student through practice sessions for writing and speaking. Please be advised that this test is extremely comprehensive and covers a lot of material. Schedule sessions early to provide enough time for the student to become familiar with the exam. Please contact us for more information.
These sessions are designed for all college-bound high school students preparing to take the SAT. We administer and score full length practice tests every week, provide rigorous vocabulary, grammar, and math drills and we offer personalized feedback on timed writing. Our experienced instructors are dedicated to guiding our students to success by building confidence and sharpening their critical thinking and writing skills.

The Instructors will also teach students how to identify their weakest topic(s) and assist them by providing intensive targeted practice to boost their test scores.

We also offer a comprehensive ACT program for students who prefer to take ACT instead of SAT. Students will know the overview and form of the exam. In our comprehensive 8 weeks course, students will learn 500 new vocabulary and complete over 8 practice tests. Just like the SAT test, it is important to learn strategy for test taking and internalize the strategy. These strategies include how to make the best guess when you do not know the answer and know how to analyze passages to make the right choice.
