Small-Group Classes FAQs
How are your classes better than the rest?
We develop our own curriculum and content, we only hire experienced educators, and we keep student-teacher ratios small. We are leaders in the test prep publishing world with best-selling workbooks available to the general public. Our course curriculum and content are developed to complement these workbooks and aren't available publicly! Only students enrolled in our classes and courses receive access to this exclusive content. We don't hire high school or college students. Though there are many brilliant students out there, a successful class must be led by an experienced educator. There is no substitute for real-world experience. We staff teaching assistants to help teachers help with classroom management. They also keep the class on track by answering questions and providing challenge materials to students who need it. This way, the class is as personalized as possible for a small-group experience.
Who teaches your classes?
All of our teachers go through a rigorous 5-part interview process. A typical teacher will have 5-10 years of relevant classroom or tutoring experience. This means our teachers can properly manage classroom dynamics while moving through the curriculum. For larger classes, teaching assistants help manage behavior and logistics and also help students who require more attention.
How large are your classes?
Our private classes range from about 8 to 14 students. To make sure students receive as much individualized attention as possible in a classroom setting, we will always maintain a single-digit student-to-teacher ratio.
What if I need to withdraw from class?
We’re sorry to see you go but know that sometimes life happens. Please refer to our policies page for more information.
The class I want to register for isn’t open yet. Can you put me on a waitlist?
Absolutely! Send us an email and we’ll gladly put you on our mailing list for when our next registration rolls around.
Do you partner with schools or other organizations?
Yes! We often partner with schools and not-for-profits to provide programming for their students. In many cases, we are able to provide school-based tuition discounts, too! Please contact us if you are interested in setting up a partnership.
What happens if I miss a class or practice test?
We strongly encourage students to attend every class and practice test. Still, we know that sometimes life happens. If a student must miss a session, we may be able to help, depending on the student's class format and enrollment. With at least three days' notice, we may be able to offer students enrolled in live, in-person classes
  • a seat in a different live, in-person class (subject to availability)
  • a spot in a live, online class (subject to availability)
  • a video recording of a live, online class session
Similarly, with three days' notice, we may be able to offer students enrolled in live, online classes
  • a spot in different a live, online class (subject to availability)
  • a video recording of a live, online class session
Of course, private one-on-one tutoring is always available (additional tuition applies). Please note that no refunds or credits are offered for missed class sessions.
How do you use technology to help improve learning?
Technology should supplement learning. We use technology primarily to collect and analyze student performance on coursework, homework, and practice tests. Our teachers and tutors use this information to help tailor their teaching to the questions and topics their students need help with most.
