Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer in-person lessons?

Yes - we will work with your schedule to provide one-on-one, in-person lessons at our office in Potomac.

Which test should my teen take (and when)?

We can help answer that for you using our proprietary assessments, developed to accurately determine which is the better test for your teen.

What is the Breakthrough Test Prep Strategy System?

  • Teach students how to become efficient readers by developing a reading range between 300-1000 wpm depending on purpose and content.

  • Show students a way to learn and remember vocabulary by learning the most common prefixes and the most common roots – gaining a 'sense' of over 500,000 words!

  • Teach students techniques to reduce test-taking anxiety.

  • Provide students with a step-by-step approach to the critical reading beginning how to find the thesis as well as the “Post-it Note Technique” to provide clarity of focus. 

  • Cue in on the equations and concepts on every SAT or ACT.

  • Focus on an awareness of test format to maximize scores.

  • Learn the 20 most frequently tested grammar rules on both the SAT and ACT.

  • Learn the essence of the ACT math and science by learning - cut through the jargon and create a customized strategy based on efficient pacing techniques

How do you know how many lessons are required?

The optimum number of lessons is determined by the information provided in the assessments and profiles, as well as the intended test date. Rather than a one-size-fits-all program, we call our approach Tuition Based on Potential Score Goal.

Do you guarantee that your students will improve?

We cannot guarantee performance, but we DO guarantee that the strategies and techniques taught use when applied. The majority of our students experience a minimum improvement of 40-120 points per section on the SAT (3-6 points on the ACT).
