Test Prep Classes

Test prep classes begin with a diagnostic test, which allows us to build a profile of each student, and provides a baseline against which to measure progress.

A Customized Approach to Test Prep Classes

In addition to our private tutoring and test prep, CATES offers classes to small groups of students who prefer to learn in a collaborative environment. For those students who excel in a small group format, and wish to maximize their budget, our group test prep classes are a perfect solution.

Our test prep classes begin with a diagnostic test, which allows us to build individual student profiles, and provides a baseline against which to measure progress. We group students according to their strengths and weaknesses, and customize our classes based on their common needs. Mock tests give students the opportunity to apply their new skills, and allow the class leader to adapt to the students’ changing needs.

Our courses change with the seasons, so please check in regularly with our course finder to see what new courses we have to offer!
