    Varsity Tutors - Free SAT and ACT Prep
     
    Varsity Tutors’ new Test Prep 4 All Initiative. Like you, Varsity Tutors believes that higher education can have a tremendous impact on people’s lives, and that college admissions should be fair for all students.

    That’s why we’ve developed the nation’s first ever free live, online prep classes for the ACT and SAT. As the lead instructor for Test Prep 4 All, I think this would be a great resource for your students for a few reasons:

    • The classes are free for everyone, regardless of socioeconomic status. Every student should have the tools and opportunity to earn their very best score on the ACT or SAT—and with Test Prep 4 All, they do.
    • The curriculum is world-class and has been developed in-house over the past 10 years. In addition, I have over 10,000 hours of teaching and tutoring experience.
    • Enrolled students can benefit from a wealth of resources, including 25 hours of live, group instruction; a digital test prep book and app; an adaptive assessment tool; weekly homework and practice exams.
