Test Preparation

To achieve a great score on a standardized test, you must learn not only the test subjects, but also strategies to perform under time constraints. Besides the lack of English, most international students have specific needs according to their countries of origin and previous education. Our full-time courses cover the entire content of the exams, with a special focus on those topics that pose the most difficulty for international students. 

This specialized focus gives students an edge that "all-in-one" test prep companies cannot provide.

TOEFL IBT program

The Test of English as a Foreign Language ® (TOEFL) measures the ability of an international student to function in North American English as it is spoken, written and heard in an academic setting. Most colleges and universities in the USA require a TOEFL score before admitting an international student.

Our TOEFL IBT (Internet-Based Test) preparation program starts every month and lasts 3 months. During the first month, we teach strategies while presenting the four sections of the test: reading, listening, speaking and writing. In the second and third months, we focus on individual students' needs and extra practice while reviewing each session in depth. 

GMAT & GRE programs

The Graduate Management Admission Test® (GMAT) is designed to measure basic verbal, mathematical, and analytical writing skills that have been developed over a long period of time through education and work. It is a requirement for most business schools and MBA programs.

The Graduate Record Examination Test® (GRE) also has three sections: verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning and analytical writing. The GRE revised General Test replaced the GRE® General Test. Featuring the new test-taker friendly design and new questions, the revised test more closely reflects the kind of thinking you'll do in graduate or business school and demonstrates that you are ready for graduate-level work.

The GMAT & GRE courses are led by experienced test preparation instructors with 99th percentile overall scores and supported by ESL specialized teachers to ensure your success as an International student.

The full program lasts 3 months. Every 4 weeks a new session starts giving students the flexibility to choose starting dates and schedule according to their needs. Classes are offered Monday-Thursday from 9am to 11am and students spend 16 hours each week at the school library performing self study tasks. 

SAT preparation

Many colleges and universities use the SAT and SAT subject tests for admission decisions and to advise students about course selection. Those tests assess your academic readiness for college. Our SAT teachers have degrees from the most prestigious universities, are test experts and exceptional teachers. Lessons cover the SAT's critical reading, writing, and mathematics sections, and the PSAT/NMSQT.

During self study hours students have access to lessons featuring interactive activities and multimedia content to create an engaging learning environment. The customization and convenience of our SAT subject test programs allow individualized lesson plans. Once a student finds the right fit, the possibilities are endless.
