SAT Subject Tests
Cardinal Education administers a diagnostic practice test to every student before beginning tutoring. This allows us to assess the strengths and weaknesses, get a baseline score, and develop an individualized tutoring plan for each student. Tutoring sessions typically last 1.5-2 hours and are held 1-2 times a week; the schedule is adapted to fit your student’s particular needs, goals, and timeline. All our sessions are 1-on-1 tutoring, which we have found to be the most successful way to motivate and raise students’ scores. All Cardinal Education test prep specialists are experts in the tests they teach. We not only know the best way to do each problem, but we can also explain each question in several ways your student will understand.
