Where are lessons taught?

Do you train students who request extra time?
Absolutely. In fact, students with special circumstances often benefit even more from this training.

What sets you apart from large SAT prep services?
The sad truth is that most large SAT services hire overworked 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.
With Marin SAT Prep, you can be confident of receiving top quality,
professional instruction from an test prep specialist committed to your success.
