The Importance of SAT and ACT Prep

SAT and ACT prep can be one of the best investments into you or your child’s collegiate future.  That is, if you spend your money wisely.  It’s important to do your research when it comes to picking a tutor, and a prep company.  Not every SAT and ACT prep company is the same.  Here’s some things to consider:


The best way to study for the SAT or ACT is to practice using real SAT and ACT problems.  Some of the larger SAT and ACT prep companies create their own imitation SAT and ACT problems.  At best, these problems are an approximation of real SAT and ACT problems.  It makes much more sense to use real SAT and ACT problems.  At Higher Learning Test Prep, we’ve compiled problems from real SAT and ACT tests from the last few years, and turned these problems into our curriculum.  That way, what you see is what you get on test day.  You’ll also want to make sure you’re not getting put on auto-pilot.  The only way to improve on the SAT and ACT is to focus on your specific issues with the test.  Avoid test prep companies with a one size fits all mentality.


No matter how great a test prep company’s curriculum, it all comes down to great tutors.  Make sure your SAT or ACT tutor is someone who knows the test, and knows how to teach it.  All too often, larger test prep companies as well as companies that offer but do no specialize in SAT and ACT prep will pair you with an under-qualified tutor.  At Higher Learning Test Prep, you’ll never have to worry about that.  Our SAT and ACT tutors are the best in the business.  And, despite our affordable rates, they’re the highest paid tutors in the business.  We believe in keeping great people around, and compensating them accordingly.  That way, they’re happy, and so are our students.

Flexibility and Accessibility:

Here at Higher Learning Test Prep, we’re aware that students today have busy schedules.  That’s part of the reason we tutor our SAT and ACT students using Skype or Google Hangouts.  No need for commuting.  Test prep doesn’t need to be another hassle in your otherwise busy life.  Some test prep companies will charge a premium for in-home tutoring.  But here at Higher Learning, we want to provide the best SAT and ACT test prep in the world at a reasonable rate, all from the convenience of your computer.
