There are many options for our children when preparing them for their college entrance exams …. we were blessed when friends referred Test Prep Gurus to us.

Professional, caring and conscientious, they helped our son achieve results that will make a big difference, while also boosting his confidence in the process. A wise investment.

Grand Slam! That’s how I would describe my son’s overall experience with Test Prep Gurus. His tutors were encouraging while challenging, systematic as well as comprehensive, and attentive to his individual needs. Bottom line... they helped him raise his score by 400 points! Thank you for your dedication to partnering with students to better their future. Seeing my son’s face and listening to the excitement in his voice as he pulled up his final test scores was absolutely priceless!

Test Prep Gurus also offers study skills training and/or academic tutoring.  

Our study skills programs are rooted in our unique growth mindset methodology. We focus on teaching broader skills that will last a lifetime: grit, mindfulness, and learned optimism, in addition to instilling specific organizational and time management skills . Our instructors take time to articulate and understand the student's short and long term goals. From there, we establish how school can act as a springboard to reach those goals.

Our growth mindset instruction empowers students to tackle and overcome their specific obstacles with determination and confidence, while coming to understand that intelligence and talent are not stagnant, but developed over time.  When appropriate, we also incorporate exercises to help students better manage anxiety caused by the pressures of school and the college admissions process.  

Make an investment in your child's future.
