What We Do For Test Prep

Our tutors will help students prepare for Standardized Tests, including SAT and ACT Tests, using the following techniques:

  • Teaching strategies to break down difficult concepts into manageable parts
  • Tailoring strategies to each student’s strengths and weaknesses
  • Providing deliberate practice that focuses on improving areas of weakness and refining areas of strength
  • Creating a practice schedule that will help students complete the steps necessary for success
  • Teaching students to be metacognitive and make their learning visible

Disciplined Minds Tutoring is great. I’m so glad that I chose them for my SAT prep. Every tutor at Disciplined Minds is amazing and does whatever it takes to make sure you increase your score. Each tutor learns your strengths and weaknesses while working with you and will develop a plan to help you be as successful as possible on the SAT. I got an 1100 on my PSAT before I went to Disciplined Minds. I increased to a 1380 on the SAT. This was a huge achievement for me and I could not have done it without Disciplined Minds.

Jessica and Will have raised my Reading and English scores 14 combined points. They’ve really helped. Totally recommend!

My son’s ACT subscore for Reading improved greatly in just a few weeks with Jessica! Amazing results received and we were also extremely happy with the strategies and work he did with Greg in math and science!

I felt like I was being listened to and encouraged. Nicole‘s positive attitude made me feel confident and helped me concentrate.
