Test prep

More than just tips and tricks

Building confidence in taking tests results from the knowledge, skills, and motivation that lead to increased test scores and success in college.

We build this assurance by equipping coaches with testing materials and detailed student data, so they can better meet your student’s unique needs.

Doing well on the SAT and ACT requires more than tips and tricks. Main Street Scholars helps students understand why the test matters and how it can change their college-going trajectories. Students need to feel motivated to use this test as a lever to unlock opportunity, and they need the strategies to perform effectively. Combined skills and strategies build test-taking confidence, leading to outcomes that set students up for success.

Test Prep

We provide prep for the following tests:

ACT
SAT
SAT subject tests
High School Placement Test (HSPT)
California High School Proficiency Examination (CHSPE)

Our students have raised SAT scores from 80–300 points, raised ACT scores by 6–10 points, and have helped a student achieve the coveted perfect score of 36 on the ACT.

We also offer full-length proctored practice tests for both the ACT and SAT. Tests are approximately 8 weeks prior to the actual test date, giving students an opportunity to get acquainted with the testing process and receive feedback on their performance. See dates below.

Test prep during Coronavirus

The Coronavirus pandemic has changed nearly all aspects of daily life, and college admissions are no exception. Along with Liz Murphy College Advising, we have developed strategies for ACT/SAT test prep during this time.
Jamie Weintraub has spent over 20 years customizing strategies for every type of test-taker. By taking the time to understand each student, she is able to help them gain confidence, build on their strengths, overcome their weaknesses, and raise scores.
