What is Marin Test Prep?

A private education company started in 2006 and specializing in preparing students for College and High School entrance exams.

Can Marin Test Prep really help?

Yes! Our courses can dramatically improve your scores. Marin Test Prep’s unique learning systems are specifically designed to optimize anyone’s score regardless of academic level or ability.

What can a student expect?

Top quality, professional test prep from a friendly, experienced, and knowledgeable instructor.

Which study materials do you use?

Marin Test Prep uses official questions and tests. ACT & SAT students also receive copies Adam’s course books, ACT Unlocked and SAT Unlocked, which cover every subject and topic. All study materials are provided free of charge.

Do you assign homework?

Homework is assigned after every lesson. Students are also encouraged throughout the course to take ‘ownership’ of their tests by practicing independently with the wealth of extra questions provided.

Do you offer practice tests?

Marin Test Prep offers, at no extra charge, full-length practice tests that simulate day-of-test conditions. Tests are given at our test center in San Rafael and results include a detailed diagnostic evaluation.

Where are private lessons taught?

Private lessons are taught in your home or at the Marin Test Prep Center in central San Rafael.

Do you train students who request extra time?

Absolutely! In fact, students who need extra time often benefit most from our performance-based programs.

What sets you apart from large test prep services?

The sad truth is that most large test prep services hire temporary and underpaid grad students, provide them with only a few days of training, then send them out to read from a canned script.

These tests are far too important to worry about getting stuck with a poorly trained, inexperienced tutor. At Marin Test Prep, you can be confident of receiving top quality, professional instruction from a test prep specialist committed to your success.
