“Test Prep Gurus was one of the wisest investments we made for our son. Due to the superior instruction, he was able to improve by 8 points on the ACT and score in the top 1% in the nation. Now he’s eligible for merit aid from USC, a school that would otherwise have not been feasible. The management was also extremely communicative and insightful through every step of the process. This program went above and beyond our expectations.”

- Jason and Cami Weiss, Parents at Troy High School

Last year, we helped the The Webb Schools rank in the top 10 boarding schools in the country for highest SAT scores.

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. They simply under promised and over delivered. 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.

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.
