Scholarship Opportunity

 Highest Quality  &  Lowest Cost

 Fees could  be waived for students with financial hardships

 As a result of using Rajiv Gupta and Aspire Test Prep, several of our students raised their SAT scores significantly.  All of them found the prep useful, in part because it showed them how to recognize and use the shortest solutions  possible. It has been our experience that not all test prep courses teach this way. Since we are a boarding school  and many of our students do not have personal transportation, Rajiv was extremely accommodating and held his  classes on our campus. We encourage any parent looking for test prep for their child to contact Rajiv and we will  recommend him to our upcoming sophomores and juniors who need additional help studying for the SAT and/or  ACT.

 Great tutor and highly professional! Our daughter enjoys the sessions and we can see the progress she is making  weekly. We would highly recommend using Aspire Test Prep, as the sessions are interesting, fun and beneficial! Her  test scores continue to improve.​​

 Aspire Test Prep helped my daughter tremendously as she prepared for the ACT. The sessions were focused, productive and enjoyable for her. Mr. Gupta was flexible and responsive to her specific prep needs. And her test results improved dramatically! Highly recommend!

The National Association for College Admission Counseling states:

"Admission Offices Identify Grades, High School Curriculum, and Test Scores as Top Factors for First-Time Freshmen: The top factors in the admission decision for the Fall 2015 admission cycle were: grades in college preparatory courses, strength of curriculum, overall high school GPA, and admission test scores. Among the next most important factors were the essay, a student’s demonstrated interest, counselor and teacher recommendations, extracurricular activities, and class rank."

U.S. News - Education states:

"How do colleges and universities decide who will get their merit scholarships? Grade point averages, standardized test scores, and the strength of your high school curriculum often play a significant role."

Parents - we see test prep as an "investment" with a                                  potential for significant returns i.e. scholarships

Why Prep?

Why Prep with us?

Targeted preparation for standardized tests is key to scoring high on these tests.  Every child needs to prepare regardless of how they are doing in school.  The need to be prepared is no different from the targeted preparations needed for sports, athletics, music recitals, etc.  Test prep makes you familiar with various types of questions/formats, develops speed & accuracy for timed tests, and provides confidence for test day.
  • We have highly qualified instructors (including the Founder) who are exceptional teachers as well.
  • We teach students how to recognize the Shortest & Easiest solutions based on fundamental concepts, which is crucial for timed tests.
  • We provide lots of practice through multiple in-class proctored tests leading to the final test day.
  • We teach test-taking strategies that provide confidence to students.
  • We have small batches (6 students maximum) for more personalized and effective learning.
  • We have significantly lower course fees as compared to the large tutoring/test prep companies.
