MJ Test Prep was founded by Dr. Matthew Joseph, who did his doctoral dissertation on the efficacy of coaching for the SAT. For over 20 years, Dr. Joseph has assembled the best tutors to help students in all areas of college testing and admissions.
The core of our philosophy is the idea that the SAT, ACT, and other standardized tests are highly repetitive and predictable, and that you can improve your score dramatically through deliberate practice using real test questions.
As tutors, we have several responsibilities. Its our job to organize the material on the test and present it to you in a way that you can understand and absorb. We have to provide efficient, effective strategies, and clear, concise, instruction to teach you the strategies. Then we must give you lots of practice problems, arranged in useful ways, to give you an opportunity to rehearse the strategies and improve your accuracy, speed, and endurance. And we should provide personalized, specific, and useful feedback and suggestions based on your performance on homework and tests.
