Benefits of Working with Denver Test Prep

  1. Expertise Denver Test Prep utilizes our most experienced instructors for our nonprofit group programs. All instructors have achieved top 2% test scores, and our management team is actively involved in all programs.
  1. Impact A 3-point increase on the ACT or 100-point increase on the SAT has the same effect as raising a student’s cumulative GPA by 0.3 points, enabling students to maximize their admissions chances and scholarship dollars.*
  1. Flexibility Denver Test Prep customizes each program to meet the specific needs of the students and organization.
  1. Value Denver Test Prep provides instruction at significantly reduced rates for nonprofit and school partners. When appropriate, students or donors can contribute to program costs to further reduce expenses.

“I really liked that my tutor helped me to develop my own pace, but challenged me to increase my stamina in answering questions. In a sense, my tutor helped me feel comfortable with myself when prepping, which in turn helped relieve the nervousness that I often feel when taking tests and ultimately resulted in an improved overall score.”
