Test Prep and Tutoring:  SAT/ACT/ISEE/SSAT and GRE

Please contact us to discuss your goals and we will suggest the best program for your student.  We work with middle school and high school students and are experienced customizing our programs for students who received Extended Time on standardized tests. We offer individual tutoring at our Borel Place Center in San Mateo and in students' homes throughout San Francisco and the Peninsula.  For students applying to graduate school, we offer individual preparation for the GRE.

Using diagnostic assessments, Marble Arch designs test prep and tutoring around the student's strengths and weaknesses.  We utilize a suite of books and tools developed by Summit Educational Group in Boston.

Proctored SAT and ACT Tests

Marble Arch offers individually arranged private proctored tests at our Borel Place Center in San Mateo.  The SAT and ACT  can be  be arranged for a weekday or Saturday morning with a minimum of one week's notice.  Students will receive a diagnostic score report approximately one week after testing which will be reviewed with one of our test prep tutors.    We can offer proctored tests for students who receive Extended Time, need audio or large print tests.
