Your prep course enrollment comes with 15% off future 1-on-1 tutoring

Our test prep courses provide comprehensive coverage of the exam: every topic tested, strategies for each section and problem type, and of course, a big dose of practice. For many students, that’s everything. A robust foundation and a push in the right direction can transform the SAT and ACT from monstrous to manageable, providing a critical boost on their path to the summit.

Some students, though, face a different sort of mountain. Familiarity and proficiency aren’t always enough to open the most exclusive doors; students aspiring towards the highest scoring ranges must display an even more nuanced mastery of the SAT or ACT. The same can be true for students hoping for extraordinary point gains or students with particular challenges on these exams. Exceptional improvement can require an even greater degree of individual time and focus, which is why some students choose to supplement their course enrollment with 1-on-1 online tutoring. Our expert tutors address each student’s strengths and weaknesses with a personalized, nuanced approach that can help students reach their peak potential.

Why it works

Who it's good for

  • Students taking the SAT or ACT multiple times
  • Students hoping to score above a 1400
  • Students looking for very large score increases
  • Students lacking foundational content knowledge (e.g. missed a year of math during a school transfer)
  • Students with diagnosed learning disabilities

If you’re not sure whether these apply to you, ask! A (free) consultation is a great way to address the nuances of your scenario.

    Start with a consultation

    1-on-1 online tutoring is highly individualized, so we start the 1-on-1 conversation with a (free) 30 minute consultation. In the consultation, we’ll discuss starting scores, goals, timelines, and anything else related to your particular scenario; we’ve been teaching the SAT and ACT for over 20 years, and one thing we’ve learned is that each student is a bit (or a lot!) different. To get started, simply fill out the form below – we’ll reach out to schedule the consultation.

    Let us know!

    We know that everyone’s a bit scattered right now, which means that even schedules designed for a particular school don’t necessarily fit your circumstances – or time zone.

    Not to worry!
    We have several different options to prep the SAT this fall, including group courses in various time zones. We also offer 1-on-1 tutoring, which is almost infinitely flexible. If you’re having trouble lining up a schedule, please don’t hesitate to reach out; we’ll arrange a (free) consultation to help craft a personalized game plan – whatever your timeline.

    If you have any questions about our courses or the SAT in general, please don’t hesitate to contact our International Coordinator at colton@highergroundlearning.com.

    Planning on taking the ACT as well?

    Students in Egypt face some (seriously unfair) obstacles around the SAT. Over the past couple years, students from Egypt have suffered from cancelled exam dates and even cancelled scores – which means many students are proactively planning to take both the SAT and ACT, just in case one exam falls through. 

    If you’re hoping to prepare for both exams, consider adding the ‘Online Tutoring Package’ to your enrollment

    The scheduled group classes will be geared towards the specific nuances of the SAT, but the majority of the content and strategies for the SAT apply to the ACT as well. As such, students transitioning from the SAT prep course towards ACT preparation are welcome to use the 5 hours of follow-up tutoring for ACT-specific prep. Our tutors are very experienced in both exams and can help students re-apply the concepts from the SAT class towards success on the ACT down the road. Plus, follow up tutoring provides the opportunity to cover ACT-only topics like the “Science” section.

    If you have any questions about either exam or about the prep course in general, please contact Colton Wright, our International Coordinator, at colton@highergroundlearning.com.

    We're prepared.

    Like hundreds of schools and businesses around the world, we faced some pretty abrupt changes in Spring 2020. Luckily, we already had a strong background in teaching 1-on-1 test prep online – which meant we were well poised to adapt to all-online programs.

    We always strive to provide the most effective prep possible, so moving a course online involves more than a Zoom meeting link. If a course does end up online, we take full advantage of the opportunities created. Free from geographic restrictions, online classes can utilize longer timelines, smaller class groups, and multiple instructors. Our classes this spring are spread over 6 weeks rather than 3 and sort students into classrooms of 5-7 students, providing a more relaxed pace and making sure students can still connect with their instructor – even if they never get to shake hands.  

      We believe strongly that it’s everyone’s responsibility to proactively manage the spread of COVID-19, so we’re prepared to move any course online if necessary. If that happens, we still maintain our flexible refund policy (10 days prior to the originally scheduled start date). 

    If you have any questions about our courses or the SAT in general, please don’t hesitate to contact our International Coordinator at colton@highergroundlearning.com.
