Welcome to CATES Brussels!
A New York-based company, CATES opened its operations in Brussels in Spring of 2012 when we were invited by International School of Brussels to design a variety of on-site test prep programs specifically for ISB students. Our programming in Brussels has grown since then, and we now provide US university test prep services for students all over the region, including students at Saint John’s International School, British School of Brussels, Lycée Français Bruxelles, and The Antwerp International School.
In the past few years, we have worked successfully with Brussels-area students interested in attending university in the United States. We prepare students for the ACT, the SAT, TOEFL, and a wide range of AP and SAT II Subject tests. We offer classes, small group sessions, private one-to-one sessions, and semi-private programs of study. We also design personalized courses for groups who may need test prep services for tests which we do not regularly offer classes. All of our services can occur both in-person and/or through our proprietary e-learning platform online. We offer Free Mock Tests to the public.
Our approach focuses on the particular needs of multi-lingual students, with a special emphasis on mastering material such as the SAT Vocabulary, SAT Essay and idiomatic grammar for the SAT Writing section. Our program of SAT Math preparation has also proven especially strong, where our students see their scores increase by up to 150+ points. In addition, we teach a series of highly successful strategies for the SAT Critical Reading section. Overall, our students have improved up to 600 points on their SAT Composite scores and by as much as 5 points on their ACT Composite scores. On TOEFL, our students consistently score over 100.
CATES Brussels offers regular classes at ISB and now Saint Johns International School. We run SAT Foundation courses, SAT & SAT Subject Test Master Classes, AP classes, and ACT classes. Our hallmark is customization, so we can also create tailored programs of study on an individual and semi-private basis, as previously mentioned. All of our preparation, group or private, includes the use of our Free Mock Tests and access to our suite of diagnostic & analytical tools.
CATES Brussels is run by Head Tutor & Client Services Associate Christina Vantzou. Christina hails from Kansas City, Missouri in the United States, attended the prestigious Maryland College of Art, and has lived in Brussels for almost ten years. She possesses over five years of tutoring experience for the SAT, SAT Subject Tests, ACT, AP, and creative writing. Christina and her team of tutors in Brussels are excited to work with you in class and privately, and look forward to getting started!
You may contact Christina at +32 (0) 494 99 76 68 or at Christina@catestutoring.be.
For the convenience of ISB families, we have created a downloadable CATES Test Prep & Admissions calendar, coordinated with the ISB College Counseling office. On it you will find all relevant dates and deadlines integrated into one general timetable.
We also have a special international hotline number for Brussels families: +1.917.620.3039.
