Your best score is just around the corner.   

Our team of experienced tutors will create a customized test prep program that will position you for admission to the college of your choice.  Here’s how:


Selectivity and Focus

SAT or ACT?  The right test is crucial to student confidence, motivation and success.  We begin with a careful assessment of each student and generate a test recommendation and personalized test prep strategy with one goal in mind:  produce the best possible score.

A Customized Test Prep Program

Test prep needs to be as individualized as students are unique.  From the confident test-taker shooting for a top score to the nervous first-timer in need of strategies to curb anxiety, our tutors customize students’ curriculum according to their goals, abilities, learning preferences and timetable.  

Practice, Practice, Practice

Our homework assignments will reinforce skills without wasting time on busy work.  Regular full-length practice tests aimed at simulating test day are included.


We build in regular communication with parents and students to track progress and encourage accountability. 

Talented, Experienced Tutors

Our test prep tutors are all top scorers, well-trained in our strategies and possess years of teaching experience.  They also share our core values:  a deep and wide-ranging curiosity, an empathetic and patient teaching style, and a responsiveness to each student’s unique way of learning.

Proven Strategies

We are constantly refining our home-grown curriculum based on our students’ test results and the specific requirements of adolescent learning.

Engaging Tutors

Our Chemistry tutor is very engaging. Our daughter enjoys working with him, and her grades are already improving. Most importantly, he’s really helping her get over the key hurdles of understanding concepts.

Tutors that Understand Students

Our daughter is really enjoying (!) working with our tutor and finds her style and approach helpful and engaging, along with meeting her ‘where she is.’ I appreciate that our tutor has experience with both middle and high school students. She can relate to the challenges our daughter encounters with the volume of material she has to learn in her Spanish class and be prepared to demonstrate in a final semester exam. I am hopeful the strategies they are working on will help her as she moves into Spanish 3 in 10th grade in a few short weeks.

Encouraging, Motivating, and Intelligent Tutors

Our SSAT tutor was fantastic! He was so encouraging, motivating, intelligent, and had just the right balance of staying focused without making our son feel pressured or stressed for his SSAT prep. They really connected, and I’m not sure I would have gotten my son to study for the exam if it weren’t for our tutor. Your company is fortunate to have him!

Flexible, Goes the Extra Mile

Tungsten Prep is very flexible, always goes the extra mile, and can help with a wide array of academic needs. They helped our 16-year-old son get through the rigorous demands of junior year. We’re not sure what we would have done without them!

Professional Tutors

We’ve tried a number of tutors in the past, but the professionals at Tungsten Prep were the best we’ve worked with by far! They really listened to what we needed, and their ability to understand how a child learns best and work to their strengths was amazing. We are so happy to have found them!

Great Test Prep Tutor to Student Rapport

Our daughter loves working with her ACT tutor. They have a great rapport. I’m impressed with her too. I’ve chatted with her about strategy, and she always proposes a thoughtful, insightful approach. I left a review on Google and read some of the other reviewers’ many positive comments. Thank you very much for connecting us with one of your Superstars. I feel like a VIP!

Tutors that Do Outstanding Work

I want to let you know how wonderful our test prep tutor was. He did an outstanding job with our daughter and exceeded all of our expectations in terms of being prepared. This preparation allowed him to meet our daughter where she was and improve her readiness for the SSAT. He gets my highest recommendation. Thank you for the great choice!

A Focus on a Great Tutor Match

Our Math and Physics tutor is a perfect match for our daughter. She looks forward to working with him and readily acknowledges how helpful he is. He really has a wonderful way about him, boosts her confidence, and teaches all at the same time. He’s a delight and a big success.
