SAT Practice Test Graded Report
Practice test technology breaks down up to five official College Board SAT practice tests into subscores like Problem Solving & Data Analysis. Students know where to focus and don’t waste time answering prep questions that don’t help raise SAT scores like other boring SAT prep courses.
One-on-One Coach Meetings
Students meet one-on-one with their expert SAT teacher for 30 minutes at a time and are monitored daily. Coaches efficiently teach personalized SAT test strategies and hold students accountable with text messaging throughout the week so parents don’t have to.
Weekly Practice Assignments
Coaches assign focused practice based on the SAT subjects students need to work on each week. The weekly assignments are designed to fit in a student’s busy schedule so he or she doesn’t fall behind because of extracurriculars or academics.
Practice Technology Developed at MIT
Smart Question technology, designed at MIT, teaches SAT concepts by adapting to each student’s strengths and weaknesses. Students improve scores faster than traditional SAT prep courses with short, consistent SAT practice sessions, instant feedback, and many hours of instructional videos created by SAT experts.

Practice makes perfect. Instant progress reports show students their score improvement in each section in real time. Students build confidence, stay motivated, and defeat test anxiety with regular practice and coaching.

“I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for SAT tutoring. It is a great way to get SAT prep done on your own time in an effective way. It is a lot easier than sitting in a classroom for 3 hours.”

Coaches aren’t just SAT tutors. They motivate and mentor students.

Testive Coaches are different from SAT prep tutors because they are experienced motivators. It’s no secret that teenagers aren’t exactly ecstatic about SAT prep. That’s why the biggest hurdle for SAT test-takers is the motivation to do the work. We hire teachers who can push high school-aged students to master the SAT and get into their dream schools. Coaches have 24/7 insight into what their students are doing and use it to to keep students motivated with regular communication.

Testive Coaches hail from the world’s top universities and tout top 1 percentile scores on the SAT and ACT. Coaches meet one-on-one with students over video chat and teach concepts on the SAT Math, Writing & Language, and Reading tests. Coaches also teach test-taking strategies like how to pace yourself for the four-hour SAT test.

Make sure work gets done without looking over your student’s shoulder

The Testive Parent Portal is the only online tool that gives parents access to their students’ daily SAT practice progress, real-time score improvement, and detailed meeting notes right from the Coach. Succeeding on the SAT takes a team effort and we’ve found providing parents with the right information to cheer their student on is key.

“To optimize motivation, Testive uses a combination of machine and man. Students access practice tests and content drills online that include instant feedback and video explanations of concepts and solutions for incorrect answers. But the real tech twist is in a proprietary algorithm that adapts to student skill level to focus learning and reduce practice time, itself a motivation enemy.”
