Tuition & Courses

What We Teach

We specialise in US and UK school and university entrance tests. For US college admissions we teach the SAT I, the ACT, the SAT Subject Tests (SAT II), and the PSAT.

US Entrance Tests

For US school admissions we teach the ISEE, SSAT, HSPT, and COOP, as well as the Common Entrance exam for UK schools. We also teach the UKCAT, MAT, PAT, STEP, and ECAA for UK university entrance.

Individual Tuition

Our individual tuition is the most focused way to prepare for your entrance tests and can take place at our London teaching centre or at your home. Using our diagnostic tools and bespoke test materials, we're able to identify those areas where you need to concentrate the most, building up your foundation of verbal and quantitative skills in the different areas that the test requires. Once you've mastered these, we'll focus on test technique, looking at how to put these skills into practice and focusing on question types and timed practice. Come test day you'll feel fully prepared, with both a deep understanding of the test content and the skills to tackle each section.

Our tutors are all experienced professionals who have a perfect score in the sections they teach. They're not just knowledgeable: they're selected for their ability to communicate and motivate, ensuring your lessons are inspiring and fun.

Group Courses

Our group courses for the SAT and ACT are some of the most popular ways to prepare for the tests. Group courses are held in each set of school holidays, usually over four or five days. They're an intensive but fun way to get the skills and knowledge required to excel on the tests. Working with specialists in each section of the test, you'll study in both small classes and individually, getting daily feedback on the essay component of the test. Students complete the courses with both a thorough understanding of the content and skills that the tests require and the knowledge of how to prepare for test day.

Course Dates

We also run group SAT and ACT courses for schools. Our partners include some of the leading schools in the UK, Channel Islands, and Europe, including Charterhouse, Brighton College, KCS Wimbledon, Careers Jersey, and the International School of Brussels. Schools courses take place on a weekly basis during term time or are offered intensively during the holidays. To find out if your school offers a group course programme, contact the school directly or email us at

Online tuition

For those students who live further afield, we offer test preparation online via Skype or similar platforms. It's a great way to access support without having to travel, while maintaining all of the support and focus you'd expect from one to one lessons. Many students who board also combine individual tuition in the holidays with online support during term-time, and if you travel regularly it can be a great way to stay in touch with your test tutor during the holidays.
