Test Prep



The Pinnacle approach to pre-college test prep involves review of both test content and structure of all segments of both tests, including strategies that are correlated with improved test outcomes over time. Individual tutoring (the only format that is now being offered) is priced at the rate of $90/hour and is scheduled by appointment.

For those who wish to determine which is their stronger test (which is our recommendation for best outcomes, since all colleges accept either test) a special package rate is available as follows:

Administration, scoring and review of two full diagnostic tests (1 SAT and 1 ACT) with 1 additional administration and review of the preferred test: so 15 hours of testing and in-depth review at the price of $1200, a savings of $150.

Also available is test prep on the student’s choice of test at the rate of $90/hour, time variable. This can be either whole test review or segment review for problem areas.

  1. Every college will accept either test, and they are more alike than they used to be. However, there are still subtle distinctions that may lead some students to perform better on one more than the other. This leads me to recommend that students do some trial testing to see which test they prefer or are stronger in and then zero in on that test.
