About the SAT Subject Tests.

The SAT Subject Tests are a set of one-hour multiple choice exams that measure knowledge and skills in a specific subject area.  These are the only national, standardized tests that allow the students to pick the subjects that best showcase their strengths.  Many colleges and universities require students to submit scores from one or two SAT Subject Tests as part of their application.  


To succeed on these tests, students must have a strong grasp of the subject that they select, as the SAT Subject Tests require comprehensive knowledge of the subject matter.   

How We Can Help

For SAT Subject Test Prep sessions, our tutors will come to your house or any other convenient location.  We provide all SAT Subject Test Prep materials for our students, including prep manuals and practice tests.  In general, we recommend weekly 1-hour sessions for 4-5 weeks leading up to the SAT Subject Tests.  Outside of sessions, students can expect 1-2 hours of homework per week.

  • Biology E/M 

  • Chemistry
