Standardized Test Prep

MLS Test Prep Team

Krista Irish, Scott Pecaro, and the entire test prep staff bring an enthusiastic “coaching” style to academic and test preparation instruction. Our approach is both intuitive and structured. We work to provide students with individualized strategies, skills, and plans in order to maximize their achievement. Our flexibility and ability to analyze both the task and the student response allows us to maximize student achievement. 

With so many test prep programs out there, why choose MLS?

Quite simply, our program works. We understand that no two students learn or test in the same way, and we tailor our program to each student’s needs. Most students face a variety of challenges when preparing for tests. We first identify these challenges and then design strategies for our students to plan for success. Our students work hard and are motivated to do so.

If you choose MLS, we develop a plan with you and your student to reach your child’s goals. By the end of our program, your student understands the structure of the test, learns key test strategies, and discovers ways to maximize his or her strengths. Our talented staff consistently manages to do this in a relaxed and stress-free manner without compromising results.

Critical Test-Taking Accommodations

Students who have a documented disability as defined by the College Board, ACT, Inc. or other testing services, may be eligible for accommodations on important standardized tests. We help families navigate the steps of receiving such accommodations.  The standardized test team evaluates the value to an individual student of specific accommodations such as extended time, multiple day testing, etc., and coaches the student through the best use of accommodations.
