In addition to SAT and ACT test prep, Back to Basics provides a wide array of 1-on-1 test prep services for students and adults. Services are provided in our center, your home or other location. Costs are based on a per-hour basis. Our tutors can provide prep for specific sections or all of the required test sections for the exams below:
General Education Development (GED)
If seeking prep for all sections, students can expect to complete approximately 60 hours of preparation time for math, science, social studies, reading and writing. Prep is offered one subject at a time.
Graduate Record Examinations (GRE)
Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT)
High School Entrance Exams
Many private high schools in Delaware require students to complete a High School Entrance Exam (HSEE) for acceptance, placement and even to determine scholarship eligibility. These schools include but are not limited to Tower Hill, Tatnall, Wilmington Friends, Sanford, Charter School of Wilmington, Ursuline Academy, Salesianum, Caravel Academy and more. Tests and test dates vary from school to school. Tests given include the ISEE (Independent School Entrance Examination), Terranova, HSPT (High School Placement Test), and SSAT (Secondary School Admission Test).
Back to Basics’ experienced tutors provide tutoring prep specifically designed around each school’s testing criteria. We provide a thorough review of test content, test-taking strategies and test timing for the exam along with essay prompts. Students will receive several practice tests, as well.
The prep is offered in a 28-hour package administered over the course of 10 weeks. Be sure to check the targeted school’s website for test date(s) and schedule your child’s prep with our office in advance, allowing for a full 10 weeks of service.
First time test-takers can expect to complete approximately 15 hours of prep per section, which will include a thorough review of test content along with several practice tests.
