BASIC PREP PACKAGE to "Amplify & Clarify"

This streamlined course touches on all topics included in the math and ELA sections of the exam. 

Some families want their child to "have as many options" as possible when applying to schools, but don't have time/budget for longer, more costly prep. these prep sessions are perfect you!

Also great for any student that has already done or is currently in a prep course but wants to amplify and clarify that material. Some very advanced students can do well with this package. 

This option includes 8 tutorials and 2 practice exams (onsite when possible.) 

This basic series is great for bright students who've been studying on their own, or who've already taken a prep class and want to warm-up and dig-in to be fully ready for the exam.

It's never too early or too late to get started! 

(prep usually commences no later than the first week of the school year.) 


Study strategies:

offered as part of ongoing tutoring.

How to take an organized approach to academics.

If taught as a separate "course" the fee aligns with "anytime-you-want to start" test prep."  (meaning PSTS generates the materials)


The Writing Lab

All levels

  • Skill development in editing,  grammar, punctuation and other seemingly unwieldy issues included in a curriculum developed by PSTS that covers 8 types of writing. Of course, it is "tweaked" specifically for YOUR child.  



It isn't difficult to find test prep in Park Slope - but prep classes are VERY different than tutorials. There are "big box" or "one size fits all" programs that charge hefty fees and use scripted programs...but our tutorials and test prep are completely geared toward your child.
