SAT, ACT, SSAT, and ISEE Exam Preparation
Our tutors prepare students for college admission (SAT/ACT) and independent school entrance (SSAT, ISEE) exams. Our tutors are English and math specialists who assess and monitor students’ strengths and weaknesses and adjust individual instruction as students progress. Test preparation familiarizes students with the format of the test, including various question types, and teaches strategies for answering questions and composing essays. Practice sessions improve pacing, increase confidence, and reduce anxiety.
Learners visit our tutoring centers from a wide range of locations. Following are some of the most common:
Beverly, Boxford, Brookline, Danvers, Dedham, Dover, Hamilton, Lynnfield, Marblehead, Middleton, Milton, Natick, Needham, Newton, North Reading, Norwood, Peabody, Reading, Salem, Topsfield, Wakefield, Waltham, Watertown, Wayland, Wellesley, Wenham, West Roxbury, Weston, Westwood, Wilmington
Individualized MCAS Test Preparation
We offer tutorials in MCAS test preparation. The MCAS, or Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System, evaluates how well students are meeting the Massachusetts Department of Education’s learning standards. CLC prepares students for the English/Language Arts and Mathematics strands of the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks. Based on the student’s school MCAS report or a CLC administered pre-test, we are able to determine specific areas that need improvement. Our experienced teachers design a program for each student to enable him or her to achieve an acceptable score on the MCAS exam. A post-test can confirm the level of improvement.
GED Test Preparation
General Educational Development (GED) tests are a group of subject tests which, when passed, certify that the taker has high school-level academic skills. The GED is comprised of five tests: Language Arts Reading, Language Arts Writing, Social Studies, Science, and Mathematics.
Only individuals who have not earned a high school diploma may take the GED tests. Common reasons for GED recipients not having received a high school diploma include adult immigration to the United States, homeschooling, leaving high school early, the inability to pass required courses or mandatory achievement tests, the need to work, personal problems, and wanting to get into college early.
