SAT Preparation Program
Welcome to our page and thank you for your interest in our Program! We have been proudly serving students in Massachusetts for over 15 years. The course we offer is unique, and the results speak for themselves.
Higher test scores can create opportunities. Students often find that they:
Reaching higher goals can pay off in a big way.
Just a few examples of the unsolicited feedback we have received...
-I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for working with Mary in preparing for her SAT exams. I greatly appreciate your gifts and talents in this area and I know Mary loved working with you too. You made her comfortable and your personality and sense of humor made the sessions most enjoyable. With thanks, Kathy M
-Thank you so much for being a great tutor. I was so lucky to have the pleasure to work with you this summer. I hope to hear from you again soon! Thanks again -Tiffany
-Katie did great on her test! Above average in math- Thanks SO much -Dotty M

-Thanks for taking the time to help me prepare for the SAT. I used your strategies a lot and they helped me be more efficient while testing. I ended up with 620's on both the math and verbal sections. Thank you so much, I really appreciate everything! -Liv C
-I wanted to let you know that Jeffrey benefitted a great deal from taking the SAT Prep course with your company. Overall, he achieved A 210 point improvement. We were also very impressed with M and think highly of him. Thank you for making such a difference! You have an excellent program. -Linda B
-Thank you so much for your time and dedication to help me with the SATs. You're the best tutor I've ever had! -Emily (Aw, shucks!)
Note: I could keep going, but you get the point. One thing that always surprises me is when we receive a payment/check that literally has "Thank You!" written on the memo line :)
We offer the latest test-taking techniques and study methods. The SAT Prep course runs for 12 weeks. Sessions are conducted in the comfort of the student's home, unless otherwise requested.
Students often have very busy schedules. We understand, and our tutors are able to arrange these private lessons during afternoons, nights, or weekends.
This is not a "one-size-fits-all" course, nor is it like groups you might find at your high school or nearby college**. We work hard to customize instruction. We carefully evaluate each student by combining information from PSAT/SAT scores, academic progress and parental feedback. The program is then adjusted to best challenge and support the student.
** There are SAT "boot camps" and groups available through schools and other tutoring companies, and a few of these options cost less than the private tutoring we offer. However, doesn't it make sense to choose a company based on RESULTS, not on the dollar amount of a course? Cheaper is not better if a student is bored or lost in a crowd. Cheaper is not better if you don't see measurable improvement.
Proudly serving Massachusetts towns and cities such as Leominster, Fitchburg, Lancaster, Bolton, Stow, Sterling, Westborough, Harvard, Acton, West Boylston, Worcester, etc.
SAT Prep Update: Registration is closed for the March/May/June exams. We are now booking for the October 2020 exams. Note: We normally have a waiting list every season, so it's best to call early. You've been warned :)
Feel free to call and chat with a real person about your needs and concerns. A course can look great on paper, but a live consult can give you a better sense of the quality of the program. Questions welcomed! There will be no pressure to sign up - we promise. (978) 534-9101
Tuition for the course includes 12 weeks of private instruction, all books and related materials, and access to a tutor for extra help outside of scheduled tutoring hours. There is a $100 non-refundable deposit required to hold a slot for each student.
Payment for the balance of the course is due IN FULL within 21 days of the invoice date. You will be billed close to the start date of the booked session. We don't currently offer payment plans. Sorry for any inconvenience.
*Locally owned and operated: BES is not a national chain, or a "Big Box" corporation. We are part of our community, City Hall employees, doctors, dentists, elected officials, guidance personnel, teachers, and principals have sent their own children to us. We even had the pleasure of working with Winter Olympian Erika Lawler when she was in high school
* A puny ad budget: BES can't afford to hire actors to portray happy students on televisions or in print ads, so we rely heavily on word-of-mouth referrals to generate new clients. The best endorsement doesn't come from recognizing a "brand" name, it comes from your neighbor or friend who has used an effective SAT Prep program.
*Flexible coaching program: We offer private sessions, which can cater to a student's specific strengths and needs. Further, a student who has learning challenges can get extra time with a tutor, and an advanced student's course can be accelerated to raise the level of challenge.
*Stats That Rock: Our SAT PREP program produces real results, and we have the numbers to prove it. We don't hand-pick our best scores to artificially inflate the final results, like some courses do. Ask us... we like to brag!
*Extended student support: Students can call the assigned tutor for extra help outside of normal tutoring hours. There is no extra charge for this.
*We care! We don't treat students like a number. We offer real-time support. We will make the effort to call parents to report any issues (such as missing homework), and of course, to talk to you when there's good news!
Each and every student is important to us. Call today! (978) 534-9101
