Why is taking a standardized test prep course important?


There are a number of substantive answers to this question, including:


- Through the process, the student experiences a standardized test.

- The student has an opportunity to experience the level and calibre of difficulty of the material that comprises the standardized test.

- Feedback offered to the student enables her/him to assess areas of strength and identify areas of opportunity for improvement. 

- The student has an opportunity to benefit from the guidance offered by an educator throughout the preparation process.

The DEFT Learning Academy Math and English Language programs have been designed to foster excellence in our students' standardized test results.

For the ambitious student


Preparing to write a standardized test requires an above-average level of organizational skills and a commitment to follow a process through to completion. Depending on the standardized exam schedule and when the student plans to write the standardized test, there could be more than six hours of homework to complete on a weekly basis to prepare for the test. 

Our resources


Students who choose any of the standardized test Prep courses do so because they seek an advantage over other students. They wish to significantly improve their scores in order to be selected by their Secondary School, College, or University of choice.  In order to enable this, our standardized test prep programs are primarily based on resources that have been developed by the creator of the appropriate standardized test.  After offering standardized prep courses for other organizations that created their own programs, I've confirmed that the choice of resources used to prepare is of paramount importance in helping a student perform well on a standardized test.
