Lessons are provided through internet-based calling and an interactive whiteboard. This allows the student and tutor to solve problems together using visual aids, graphs, drawings, etc. You can interact in real time from anywhere with internet connection, including the safety and comfort of your own home!
Tests are about more than just content knowledge. They require sustained attention, performing under pressure, and time management. This program prepares students for success by teaching skills and strategies to overcome these difficulties.
During the first session, the tutor will take time to understand the student’s specific difficulties on the exam. They will work together to identify goals, specify strengths and weaknesses, and construct a study plan.
During SAT/ACT lessons, students will work through Pronto Test Prep’s customized curriculum, which combines expert concept knowledge with the strategies necessary to feel confident and prepared on test day! Lessons are interactive, intertwining new concepts with relevant practice problems taken from prior exams. This allows students to work through REAL SAT/ACT questions with expert guidance.
The tutor will monitor progress throughout the sessions and assign targeted homework and periodic practice tests. This strategic approach allows the student to prioritize their studies for a more effective, efficient approach.

Hi, there! I'm Wendy, a test prep expert and the Primary Tutor at Pronto Test Prep. I graduated from UCLA with a degree in Psychobiology. I prioritize connecting with students and using my psychology background to work with students with a range of strengths and weaknesses, including students with attention problems, learning disabilities, and test anxiety. I pride myself on creating a non-judgmental and accepting tutoring environment where students are free to ask questions and make mistakes.
I have been tutoring for over 10 years, with 3 years specializing in online test prep. I also spent 5 years working in Chemistry, Biology, and Psychology research labs. My strong teaching background combined with diverse professional experience has provided me with the tools to explain a variety of subjects in a relatable way. My tutoring style focuses on providing encouragement while asking guiding questions to engage the student in the learning process, and learn to independently guide themselves to the correct answer. I believe that test-taking skills can greatly improve performance and can be taught to any student, regardless of the student's starting point.
I love building confidence in my students and seeing them achieve or surpass their goals! These test scores have helped students get accepted to universities and become eligible for the scholarships they were striving for. I love hearing these success stories and helping guide students and families through this college admissions process.
