Our approach to test preparation is founded on the belief that both the traditional Western approach to education – one that emphasizes organic learning as well as active and cooperative interaction between teacher and student – and the traditional Eastern method – one that focuses on systematic repetition and memorization – have merit.
Combining the two allows students to reap the benefits of both approaches and enables them to achieve the high scores necessary for entrance into the world’s top universities.
We offer privates and courses for SAT, ACT, SSAT, and ISEE. We also offer private lessons for top school entrance exams, e.g. LNAT, BMAT, UCAT, MAT, Oxbridge entrance exams, etc. Contact us to learn more!

The Edge’s proven Test Preparation approach divides all the standardized tests that we work on into three areas:
Core concepts that students must know in order to succeed on the given test – for examples, the Pythagorean Theorem in Math, or Subject-Verb Agreement in English Grammar
Since test makers largely assess the same competencies year in and year out, standardized tests use similarly structured questions again and again to evaluate students’ proficiency in these areas. Learning the areas. Learning to identify and respond to these repetitive structures with set strategies can boost students’ performance on even more difficult questions.
Proven tools and method to deal with different types of questions. By learning to deploy both micro- and macro-strategies, students can avoid the common pitfalls of wrong answer choices, get the opportunity to answer even the most challenging questions, and improve the efficiency with which they progress through.
