In a 90-minute live online class each week, students will learn key information, core test strategies, and critical skills for the SAT and ACT.

At the end of the course, students complete a full-length online practice test with a live virtual proctor to help gauge their progress and understand how to best focus their remaining prep efforts before exam day.

"We used Livius when my son couldn't write his college application essay. The counselor there was just terrific. She got him organized, helped him pick out a topic, kept him on track, and he ended up with a great essay that he was really happy with. She also helped him prepare for his college interviews. She knows a lot about the process and had good advice about how to do his applications."

"Best tutoring service we've experienced in the Greater Boston area. Very responsive staff and excellent communication with parents regarding tutoring sessions, scheduling, planning. Excellent tutors and lots of flexibility. For us, they stepped into a difficult, time-constrained situation and made everything work."

"I attended ACT prep here after completing an SAT/ACT comparison. I felt prepared for my ACT and my scores showed wonderful results. Livius' small classes allow instructors to thoroughly grade writing prompts and provide detailed feedback. Thanks to Livius' instruction my scores granted me admittance to Harvard."
