Our Process

Can-Am.Tets.Prep.AcademyAt Can-Am Test Prep Academy, we take the SAT and ACT seriously!  For private tutorials, we offer new clients a 1.5-hour free initial consultation to demonstrate our unique process and methods and to determine whether instructor and applicant are a good fit. Classes may be arranged in various formats, depending on the students’ needs, the time frame available, and the family’s finances:

  • private one-on-one tutorials at our office,
  • private face-to-face on-line tutorials,
  • group workshops – either online or in the classroom.

Our classes are unique in that our instructors make use of multimedia, which is constantly enhanced and updated to reflect changes made by the testing manufacturers.  Our electronic teaching method allows the instructor to cover more ground in all the components of the SAT and ACT during tutorial sessions.  This innovation allows us to move at a fast pace, having diagrammed every question and problem set electronically.  Our visual approach to instruction is both entertaining and highly effective with today’s tech-oriented students. It is not unusual for students who have completed our classes to increase their scores by 200-300 points or to break the 1400 SAT bench mark. In the ACT, our strategy has allowed students to crack the 32 composite mark. We coach students on test format, test content, and strategies for all components of the ACT and SAT, including essay-writing.  We familiarize them with the traps and sneaky attempts designed to draw them to the wrong answers in the SAT.  Scores go up when we show our students how to spot these ploys and help them identify particular skill sets they need in order to improve their scores. Since time is a major factor in writing the SAT and ACT, we teach strategies which are geared towards finding solutions and choosing the correct response efficiently and within the shortest time frame possible. We assign homework and we encourage students to do mock tests to make sure they are ready for the real test.

We have literally spent thousands of hours working with students and developing strategies to help them succeed on standardized tests. Time flies when students are absorbed in Can-Am’s exclusive Power Point tutorials.  Our dynamic teaching method will enable student to become test-savvy, increase their scores, and help them gain admission to their top choice university.

Our track record is evidence of our success. Can-Am students have gone on to successfully gain admission to American colleges and universities, including highly selective institutions such as all the Ivy League universities, Stanford, Caltech and some of the top American liberal arts colleges.
