**Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), all proctored exams will currently be held via Google Meet. In-person exams will resume as soon as it is safe to do so.**
One of the unique services we offer during our proctored exams is that our proctor walks around and notes the progress each student is making at different time markers; he/she will then advise the student's tutor whether he/she is behind pace vs. ahead of pace, going in order of the questions vs bouncing around, etc. This gives us a LOT of information to work with, so we strongly recommend signing up for as many exams as possible!
We regularly host proctored exams at the Beverly Hills Library, Pacific Palisades Library, and the UCLA Powell Library, as well as occasionally at other locations. Exams are typically held on Saturdays at 9:30 or 10:00am or Sundays at 12:00 or 1:00pm, depending on the library's opening time.

REMINDER: All packages include free proctored exams*, which are valid for the duration of the package and should be used prior to the package completion.
New families are encouraged to start with a Test Prep Diagnostic! Our Test Prep Diagnostic allows students to take one of our proctored exams and then meet with a tutor for two hours to break down the results. Beyond simply going over wrong answers, the tutor will help determine the biggest factors at play in the student's score. Is the student missing key grammatical or mathematical concepts? Is he/she unaware of how to strategize on the test--when to guess or skip a question, read or skim a text, assume or confirm an answer? Does he/she run out of time and not finish sections? Is the anxiety and stress of a 4-hour exam taking its toll? Or is the test riddled with silly mistakes (2+3=6)? The diagnostic provides insight into how much help is needed and in what areas, and therefore how best to move forward.
