Learn from Anywhere

Our virtual instruction platform affords families around the globe the opportunity to work with Test Prep Gurus. Our goal is to provide international students with convenient and effective access to the best instructors in the world that would otherwise be unavailable due to the challenges of time and distance. 

Many of our virtual instructors are bilingual and/or trilingual and have previous extensive experience living and teaching abroad. Chinese families can be assured that we can pair students with instructors who speak Mandarin or Cantonese.  

We provide instruction for all academic subjects and standardized examinations, including the ACT and the SAT. Our virtual test preparation program is reserved for a limited number of students who are dedicated to achieving the best ACT and SAT scores possible.  

Work with the Best

Test Prep Gurus ranked #1 as the best test prep company in the western United States for helping students achieve the highest score improvements on the ACT examination (contact us for more details about this independent study). 

Our unique growth-mindset teaching methodology unleashes our students' potential on the ACT and SAT. Higher scores enable our students to consistently gain admission to the top colleges in the nation, including Princeton, Harvard, Chicago, Yale, Columbia, Stanford, MIT, Duke, Dartmouth, Cal Tech, Northwestern, Brown, Cornell, Notre Dame, Georgetown, and all of the University of California campuses, including UC Berkeley and UCLA. 

Test Prep Gurus works closely with numerous elite independent schools, including The Webb Schools, a private boarding school on the West Coast of the United States with a large community of Chinese and international students. We understand the expectations of international families and the work that is necessary to help students gain admission and succeed at American universities and beyond.

"Just wanted to let you know how excited I was with our SAT results! Imagine how surprised we were to see her jump 230 points in such a short time! I’m sure you see this all the time, but I cannot say enough what an amazing job you guys did, and all without us leaving our living room.  This has changed her “dream schools” into schools she has an excellent shot of getting into.  She loved both her math and English tutors and her results speak to what an excellent job they did.  Keep up the great work!  Expect to hear from me again in 4 years, when I get to repeat the whole process!"

Final thoughts: It's important to keep in mind that the technology used actually isn't the biggest difference-maker between a mediocre virtual learning experience and an excellent one. It's having a dedicated team of experts committed to a single goal -- helping your son or daughter realize their aspirations for the future.
