How our test prep works
DETERMINE BASELINE & GOALS
First we establish your baseline score, either through a prior test or a new practice test. We’ll also discuss your admissions plan and timeline.
ESTABLISH A PLAN AND START PREPARING
Next, we’ll create a plan and your tutor will implement it with you. Sessions will occur regularly (with the same tutor) that take the stress out of the prep process while boosting your score.
MAKE SURE YOU’RE ON TRACK:
Once every few weeks we will reevaluate your progress and refine the study plan and tutoring to improve weak areas.
A Typical Test Prep session
Your tutor will review any prior “homework” with you, noting any errors so you recognize and avoid them in the future.
Your tutor will teach you the academic concepts covered by the exam. These might include math, science, reading comprehension, grammar, writing, etc.
It’s not enough to just learn content. Successful students understand how to recognize “patterns” in questions and avoid getting tricked.
You’ll learn how to combine content and strategy to tackle any question on the exam.
Your tutor will assign specific sections of the exam based on your session, and full-length exams (less often) to make you familiar with the test-taking environment.

Common Challenges with the PSAT
The PreACT, also known as PLAN, is similar to but less common than the PreSAT exam. The PLAN is taken in 10th grade to prepare for the ACT, which is taken in 11th or 12th grade. The PLAN exam is very similar to the ACT which can be more difficult for high school students as this is their first time doing a test of this size with a college-level curriculum. The PLAN assesses students' abilities in English, Math, Reading, and Science, so proper knowledge of all four dimensions is needed. TutorNerds professors will assist you in mastering all PLAN dimensions, allowing you to achieve excellent results on your ACTs.
