ACT-American College Test

    This is a test that should be taken by every High School student in his or her junior/senior year (if he/she is planning to pursue further studies in college or university). The ACT Assessment is designed to assess high school students' general educational development and their ability to complete college-level work. The tests cover four skill areas: English and writing, mathematics, reading, and science reasoning. At the Kendall Park Learning Center our experienced and certified tutors will prepare you for facing the challenges of ACT, will prepare you for the test as well as will give you study tips and teach you some test taking skills.


    This is a test that should be taken by every High School student in his or her junior/senior year (if he/she is planning to pursue further studies in college or university). The new SAT is a reasoning test which assesses student’s knowledge in mathematics and critical reading & writing. Each class offers an extensive preparation in sentence completion and reading comprehension, logic and rhetoric, analysis and interpretations, semantics, etymology, word relationships and roots, denotations, connotation, and vocabulary. In writing students will work on usage, sentence and paragraph correction and improvement, and the essay. Extensive practice reinforces the skills and strategies that are taught, and several mastery tests are included for each part. In mathematics the course provides a complete developmental review of the four categories tested in the mathematics section of the SAT: Arithmetic-Numbers & Operations, Algebra & Functions, Geometry & Measurement, and Number Patterns, Probability, Statistics, & Data Analysis. Extensive use of actual SAT questions, practice tests, and regular drills are incorporated into lesson plans.


    This Class offer thorough and detailed information in the subject areas chosen by the student. We prepare student for SAT-II in the areas of: Literature, United States History, World History, Mathematics (Level I/II), Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Foreign Languages (French and Spanish).


    PSAT/NMSQT stands for Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test and National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. This test has two purposes. One, it is a kind of rehearsal for students who plan to take the SAT, which is the test most colleges require for admission. Two, it is used to select students seeking National Merit Scholarships which are awarded spring term of the senior year and to choose students for the National Assistance Scholarship Program for Outstanding Negro Students. A further side benefit of the test is that you can have your scores reported to colleges interested in students scoring in your range, and you will receive a barrage of pamphlets, catalogs, and brochures telling you about those schools.


    The SSAT is an admission test that measures verbal, math and reading comprehension. By clearly demonstrating a positive correlation between student performance on the test and academic success, the SSAT is a valuable tool in helping students and schools make the right match. The SSAT has become the common and preferred admission standard for independent schools. In Kendall Park Learning Center our certified and experienced teacher will prepare you for the SSAT!

    • Reading Comprehension: Reading comprehension passages are narrative or descriptive and are drawn from the fields of humanities, social studies, and science. This section measures the student's ability to assimilate what is read and asks the test taker to recognize central ideas, draw inferences, determine the meaning of vocabulary words in context, and apply information.
    • Quantitative Skills: The Quantitative portion measures understanding of mathematical concepts, computation, routine mathematical manipulations and problem-solving as well as recall of factual knowledge. The questions measure different levels of understanding and vary in difficulty.
    • Verbal Skills: The Verbal section is composed of synonym questions measuring verbal aptitude and analogy questions measuring the ability to identify logical relationships between concepts.


    We prepare students for proficiency assessment in the areas of Mathematics, Language Arts Literacy, Science and Social Studies. Students will be introduced to such topics as:

    • Language Arts Literacy: prewriting, drafting, editing publishing and public speaking, recognition of text organization (characters, setting events, recognition of cause and effect, comparing and contrasting, forming of opinions, drawing conclusions and many more).
    • Science: Processes of Science, Life science, Physical science, and Earth science.
    • Mathematics: methods and strategies, problem-solving strategies, number sense, concepts, and applications, spatial sense and geometry, probability, statistics, discrete mathematics, patterns, functions and algebra. Social Studies: history, government and politics.

    We prepare students to score high in NJ ASK.


    We prepare students in the areas of verbal, quantitative skills, reading, language and mathematics. The verbal skills section includes synonyms, antonyms, analogies, logic, and verbal classification questions. The quantitative skills section includes series, geometric comparisons, non-geometric comparisons, and number manipulations. The reading section asks students to answer questions on short passages of varying styles on a range of topics. The mathematics section includes mathematical concepts and problem solving drawn from arithmetic, elementary algebra, and basic geometry. The language section tests capitalization, punctuation, usage, spelling, and composition.
