Can-Am Test Prep Academy is unlike any other test prep agency.  Our focus is not on prepping a huge number of students and sending them through the revolving doors of ACT and SAT.  We truly care about each individual student and their well-being is of primary importance to us.  By teaching them to relax and not stress out about standardized testing, we strengthen their confidence. Our unique methodology of using PowerPoint presentations and multimedia to get our strategies across and to keep students fully engaged, makes the sessions fun, lively and informative, is perfect for visual learners, and has brought us accolades from students and parents alike.  Our revolutionary approach and focus on strategies to beat the test, creates better test-takers of our students.  We have had the privilege to teach the SAT or ACT at some of the top schools in Vancouver including Mulgrave School, Saint George’s School, West Point Grey Academy, Southpointe Academy, Board of Education Burnaby School District 41, and Continuing Education Richmond School District 38. 

Our students have excellent results and we are proud of our track record!  In the past five year, our students were admitted to Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Cornell, Carnegie Mellon, Stanford, UChicago, UPenn, Caltech, Johns Hopkins, NYU, Wellesley, Tufts, Brown, Dartmouth, Berkeley & other UC campuses, as well as to other U.S. colleges and universities.  While we train a new group of test-takers, we look forward to hearing the success stories of the students who have graduated from our program as they go through university and beyond. See our testimonial page for more details of our fish - diversity concept, racism and isolation

Can-Am Test Prep Academy has been preparing students for US university entrance exams since 2006. We hold classes in the Greater Vancouver Area at a number of schools as well as online to serve our students who hail from across the world. Our goal is to maximize the score of every student. We strive towards this goal through a skillful presentation of the concepts, strategies, and timing necessary to reach one’s target score. Our approach is personalized to the needs of each and every student.  Below are some highlights of how we work/our services:

  • Instructors with 20+ years experience in SAT and ACT preparation
  • Outstanding and engaging classes
  • Working with students across the academic spectrum
  • Working with student/athletes
  • Classroom preparation, online tutorials, and/or private tutoring
  • Can-Am Online Tutorials are interactive one-on-one tutoring in an online format
  • Well-versed in the latest trends: reading and researching changes and new developments
  • Students benefit from the same methodology which has helped hundreds of students get into their top-choice universities for over a decade

We have designed a unique electronic teaching version for SAT and ACT preparation (including SAT Subject test prep for Math I & II, and Physics) which we use to help train students prepare for these standardized tests.  These PowerPoint presentations allow us to cover more ground in all the components of the SAT and ACT during each tutorial session.  This visual approach to instruction is highly effective with today’s tech-oriented youth and students are able to increase their scores after completing our course.  Can-Am Test Prep’s students have gone on to successfully gain admission to American universities including Harvard, Stanford, Caltech, Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Duke, Princeton, Yale, Georgetown, University of Pennsylvania, Johns Hopkins, UCLA, UC Berkeley, and US colleges including Amherst, Vassar, Haverford, Colby, Colgate, Hamilton, Wesleyan, Middlebury, Bowdoin, Barnard, Pomona, Wellesley and others.
