Program Highlights

    • Pine-Richland Community - Goldstein Test Prep is run by Pittsburgh natives for Pittsburgh families.  Since 2010, they've been running free information sessions for Pine-Richland families, and annually helping over 100 Pine-Richland students prepare for the SAT and ACT.

    • Accolades - Goldstein Test Prep was recently selected by CBS Local as one of the top SAT/ACT preparation programs in the region.

    • Options - Goldstein Test Prep offers group courses, private tutoring, and combination programs for both the SAT and the ACT. Every family receives a free consultation and ongoing support to determine which tests might be best for students to pursue. They also work with families to determine the appropriate number of hours students need to meet their goals.  While small enough to have individual relationships with their families, Goldstein Test Prep offers flexible options in order to find the right program and price point for each family.  

    • Elite Teachers and Mentorship - All teachers have scored in the 99th percentile of test-takers and have attended an Ivy League or equivalent undergraduate program.  Goldstein Test Prep instructors are young, ambitious, and talented.  Full-time tutors each have at least five years of experience teaching SAT and ACT preparation. Also, having recently and successfully traversed the college admissions process, instructors are in a unique position to serve as mentors to their students (see featured instructors at the end of the document).  

    • The Right Approach - Students learn how each question type is designed to test them on a very narrow set of skills, specifically step-by-step thinking processes.  By pulling back the curtain on the SAT and ACT, Goldstein Test Prep seeks to empower students. They also review every concept that students will encounter on each test.  Students develop a clear system for each section and know exactly what to expect on test day.
