Why Choose Sandweiss Test Prep for Your SAT Prep

Since 1998, Sandweiss Test Prep has been offering comprehensive test preparation services, academic tutoring, and admissions consulting to high school and graduate students throughout the Puget Sound. We’ve helped students attending public high schools in the Seattle, Shoreline, Edmonds, Everett, Mercer Island, Bellevue, Northshore, Issaquah and Lake Washington school districts and beyond, and just about every area private school as well.

We also work online with individuals or groups of students throughout the U.S.  If our course schedules do not suit you, please let us know!  We can create a customized test prep program for you.

We are a local company dedicated to providing professional, high-quality instruction, individual attention, small classes, and affordable rates, all with the goal of helping you succeed on your SAT. Our test prep provides the most effective support you’re likely to find when researching SAT course options. We’ll teach you to tackle every question type in detail, provide you with practical strategies for managing each section, and help you maximize your overall score.

In addition to providing expert test prep, we can also counsel families through all aspects of the college admissions process.  Let us know if you’d like our help navigating the path to finding and applying to your “best fit” schools.

*During the summer of 2021, we are planning to offer both online and in-person, small group, SAT course options.  Online courses are held via Zoom with lesson times specified in synchronous time, and the number of students is capped at six  to ensure that all students receive the attention they need.  In-person courses will be held in our new Seattle office which can hold up to five (fully vaccinated) students per class.

We will continue to primarily use our online proctoring system so all students can take their practice tests at their convenience at home.  For students taking in-person courses, we will offer in-office proctoring on a limited basis for an additional cost; please let us know if you’re interested in this.

In addition to providing proof of vaccination (2nd dose received at least two weeks prior to the first class), students attending in-person courses will be required to comply with any other WA State and CDC group safety guidelines in place when the course begins.
