We make test prep an important step in your education. 

A full course consisting of tuition in all sections of the ACT can take between two and six months.  Our curriculum has been developed by our own team of tutors - we focus on teaching the skills necessary to succeed at the ACT, not merely on repeated testing.  We are both creative and thorough in our preparation.

To optimize individual progress, our ACT preparation classes are run in small batches. Each batch consists of no more than five students and usually meets two or three times a week. For those with special requirements or schedules, we also teach the same content in one-on-one classes.

We are registered with US-based Academy Technologies, which allows both teachers, parents, and students to keep track of individual progress. This online system makes it possible to focus on the specific needs that each student might have, whether it be in punctuation, trigonometry, vocabulary, or data interpretation. It gives us insight into how individual students think and, thus, brings us closer to each student.

Welcome back to the SAT

Essai is expanding our offering – beginning in 2019, we will be offering full tuition for the SAT. We took a brief hiatus from the SAT when it was overhauled in March 2016; however, we have now been able to build a programme of study suited to the new 1600 SAT format. Just like our ACT curriculum, we have a programme built around small classes, teaching the skills necessary to succeed in the SAT and in college.

There are four international test dates for the SAT per year. Due to the examination schedule of most students in India, we recommend that you aim to take the test on May 4th and December 7th.

The ACT and SAT are both rigorous tests that demonstrate a student’s readiness for college. Please get in touch to see which is right for you.
