Score At The Top provides students with the most innovative, creative, and successful SAT and PSAT prep – in small group, custom group, private, and semi-private sessions. Our cutting-edge SAT/PSAT strategies achieve results that speak for themselves. There is no one better than Score At The Top for preparing students for the SAT, PSAT, and other standardized tests! Our SAT- and PSAT-prep curricula were designed by Score At The Top founder, Judi Robinovitz, who worked for Educational Testing Service for 23 years, and consulted to the College Board for whom she wrote their first test-prep software and strategy chapters of their first test-prep books (the Board scaled back the books because Judi’s strategies were too insightful!). No other SAT-prep provider can boast of a pedigree like ours!

Our private SAT and PSAT tutoring and small group SAT and PSAT workshops are designed to make test-takers more comfortable with the test-taking experience, increase scores and self-confidence, and teach skills that are as important in school and life as they are on the test. Interactive SAT and PSAT sessions focus on test familiarity, content, and the test-taking strategies students need to score at the top of their potential.
A comfortable but lively pace offers significant opportunity for questions and answers. We begin with an overview of the SAT or PSAT and then introduce the most effective strategies for each type of test question in reading, math, and writing. Students use newfound strategies to solve and then discuss actual test questions.
We take a long-term view, motivating students to become word conscious and showing them how to work towards improved critical thinking as well as active reading and writing skills. Also, we integrate into our curriculum a thorough review of the most commonly tested math concepts, with significant emphasis on effective computational shortcuts, time-saving approaches, and valuable checking strategies. Students do homework before each session, typically consisting of a full-length actual test or selected test sections, vocabulary-building, math drills, and/or outside reading. With confidence-building incorporated into every session, Score At The Top students truly become SAT test smart!
Preparation for the PSAT and SAT are very similar. The PSAT is a shorter, easier version of the SAT; the PSAT consists of older SAT questions that have never before been published. While the test-taking strategies are identical for both tests, students practice with either SATs or PSATs, depending on the next test they are taking.
