SSAT, PSAT, & SAT Test Preparation Program

 Zion Learning's SAT Prep Program is designed to not only guide students to higher test scores, but to enjoy the one-on-one attention of problem solving. We understand that students need a space where they can make mistakes and express what is challenging them.

"Thoughtful, smart and positive in-home tutoring that drastically improved my child's SAT scores at a reasonable price. I was a little reluctant to try a brand new business for my child's SAT tutoring -- especially during a year where the SAT test has changed a great deal. But I decided to take a chance on Zion Learning after meeting founder La'Vonnda Haynes. My son is a straight 'A' student but struggled to do well on standardized tests, especially the math sections. Under La'Vonnda, his SAT score increased 120 points from his PSAT score, with the greatest improvement seen in math. I will note that I used another well-known and very pricey SAT tutor for an older child (also a very good student) and got far more mediocre results."
