From there, we have two ACT/SAT test preparation options that
delve deeply into the nuances of the test:

Our intensive, all encompassing program structure will immensely improve your child's performance on the ISEE (lower/middle/upper), HSPT, and/or SSAT and prepare him or her for the academic challenges of 8th grade and beyond.

"TRA really helped and after taking the official SAT, our daughter commented that the strategies she learned allowed her to answer a lot more questions with confidence. We give TRA two thumbs up!"


- Mitch S. (Via Yelp)

"Well, I got a 767 on the verbal, 773 on the math and 728 on the reading.  I placed in the 96th percentile of the SSATs and 99th overall! So, thank you so much for your help, apparently, it really worked!" - Daniel (grade 8)

2016 Lower - Middle ISEE Data

For 2016, we have seen an increase in score percentages based on our student average hours working with our tutors and teachers at TRA.  Our biggest milestone is our Mathematics achievement with an average increase of 27 percent!  Top scorers have received about 42 hours of instruction at TRA.

We begin with a practice test that serves as a baseline to determine your child's strengths and areas of need. From there, we meet to discuss the student's goals and design his or her test preparation program. Based on test scores, we work with the student to overcome areas of need while strengthening his or her current skill set. Students not only see an improvement in grades and performance, but also develop long-term test preparation skills. Schedule a complementary meeting with us:

Option A: Pay As You Go
After the student has taken the initial exam, we offer individual sessions on a pricing sliding scale. Depending on scores, we recommend two hours of instruction per week for 12-18 weeks. These sessions are 1-1 in order to target specific problem areas and to ensure maximum retention. We assign weekly homework to help students practice what they have learned. When the student is ready, we proctor a follow-up test to gauge the student's improvement and use the results to inform a course of action for continued success.


Option B: The ACT/SAT All-Inclusive (group sessions available only during summer months)

This program is available for either the SAT or the ACT and offers 25 session hours of direct instruction as well as two practice exams, two family conferences, and all course materials. After the student takes an initial practice exam, we follow up with twelve hours of small group sessions that focus on general SAT strategies. We then assign weekly homework to help students practice what they have learned. With the remaining thirteen hours of instruction, we delve deeply into the nuances of the test as per the needs of the individual. These sessions are 1-1 in order to target specific problem areas and to ensure maximum retention. We then schedule a second practice exam to gauge the student's improvement and use the results to inform a course of action for continued success.
