Standardized Test Prep

Scoring well on a standardized test could be the deciding factor in whether or not you receive an acceptance letter from your first choice school. For this reason, it is critical for students applying to a college or graduate program to prepare and do their best on the corresponding entrance exam. Tri-Ed currently offers tutoring services for the SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, and Praxis. Working with an experienced tutor can help you master the skills necessary for the test and give you tips on test-taking strategies. Tri-Ed Tutoring can help you prepare and get the score you want!
