It goes without saying that mediocre and average students need test prep. At a first glance it seems that smart students do not need test prep. We had many smart students who took the exam first time preparing by themselves and got a score in the 90th percentile only. They took the exam second time after prepping with us and got a score in the 99th percentile. What changed? Given few years, smart students can dissect the exam and ace it. Unfortunately, the system makes them extremely busy and they don't have that kind of time. Our super smart faculty have spent decades dissecting the exams, understanding the types of questions being asked, tabulating the frequency of question types, developing strategies to solve questions at lightning speed, refining methods for managing the short exam time and stress level, mastering techniques to memorize complicated formulas and avoiding careless mistakes, and much more. When smart students come to us they get all these in few weeks of time with us, and hence they do superbly well.

Our rates are very competetive and have the lowest P/Q (price/quality) ratio. Pricing depends on class level (school, college or university), level of difficulty of the material, time frame of commitment, faculty experience level, effort involved, class size, economic factors and others. We also offer pricing based on base fee + performance fee. The latter is tied to students score improvement. This is basically a "short call option" for you, to those of you who understand finance.

Learning and exam scores depend on many factors beyond the test preparation or tutoring period, and all these factors are not in ClarityEd's control. Those factors that are in ClarityEd's control, ClarityEd will guarantee results. That is, if the student attended all the classes punctually, has not been late to any class, if Private or iPrivate program has not cancelled or rescheduled any class, attended each class completely, paid full attention during each of the class lectures, cleared up confusing topics, finished all the homeworks and exams assigned to the student by the requested time, has been in good health, has no mental or family problems, if Private or iPrivate program has worked with ClarityEd for at least 20 hours, the exam was of usual difficulty level, took the exam to the best of his/her ability, took the standardized official exam within 30 days of finishing the classes with ClarityEd, and still the student's score/performance on the official exam has not been higher than the student's score/performance on the same official exam, most recent, before joining ClarityEd, ClarityEd will refund the full money paid or let the student retake the same class with ClarityEd at no cost to the student whatsoever. For the guarantee to apply, the student must provide official proof for each of the above things and request for a refund in writing within 7 days, that is, ClarityEd must receive within 7 days, after the exam result has been announced.

Once the school starts, it is extremely hard to find a big chink of time to prepare for the standardized exam without effecting the school grades and activities. The best strategy is to prepare in the summer and take the exam in the summer. But, they don't offer test dates in the summer, as usual, so take the exam immediately after the summer at which it is offered, ie SAT in Oct and ACT in Sep. The next best time is after the Christmas holidays, ie SAT in Mar and ACT in Feb. So, start in summer of Sophomore year and take exams in fall and/or winter of Junior year.

It depends on the score you are aiming at and how busy your schedule is. We recommend start preparing at least 6 months to 2 months ahead of the real exam date. Note that any amount of prepping is better than not prepping at all.
