With more than 25 years of experience, Prestige Prep is the premiere boutique NYC tutoring agency for academics, test prep, and admissions consulting. Operating for 20+ years exclusively on family referrals, you can’t beat our custom-tailored approach to YOUR family’s specific needs. We know that navigating New York City’s public and private high school admissions processes can be stressful and difficult. Let us help! From the alphabet soup of entrance exams – SSAT, ISEE, SHSAT – to tours, applications, and interviews (sometimes for parents, too!), our team has navigated these waters for more than 25 years and helped students get into the schools of their dreams. Our test prep process for SHSAT, ISEE/SSAT begins with students taking a proctored diagnostic exam. Our exams – offered at a 25% discount to you – are hand-scored and analyzed by testing experts (not just a computer!) to overview areas of strength and weakness in both content and test-taking strategy. We use this to devise a test prep plan fit to your student’s needs. When it comes to admissions, certain schools can be great for one type of student and terrible for another. That is why our process starts by articulating an appropriate list of schools that “fit” your child’s unique personality and academic self. Then, we create a schedule to ensure that all applications are completed and submitted on time. This incorporates advising your child on all essays, coaching for interviews, and guaranteeing that everything runs smoothly along the way.
