Individualized Test Prep Tutoring

State test day arrives and like clockwork: butterflies in the stomach, sweaty palms and jittery nerves. It’s natural to get nervous before a big state test. With our test prep program, your child will learn useful test-taking strategies to manage his or her nerves and feel calm and prepared on test day.

Getting Ready for the SAT and ACT

If your High School student is preparing for college and is worried or scared about how to study for the SAT or ACT exam, our test preparation program is designed specifically to give them strategies to relax and focus. It’s completely normal for a student to be nervous, and our strategies will help calm the nerves and focus the mind. Many students ask, “how do I study for the ACT?” or “how do I study for the SAT?” Sylvan can answer those questions and help your student be ready on test day.
