Granite Test Prep
Mindfulness Powered: Test Prep | Tutoring | College Counseling
ACT | SAT | GRE | LSAT | MCAT
Their test prep services are powered by a “mindfulness-centric” holistic approach. Students are encouraged to go beyond simply memorizing test content and learn how stress reduction, focus training, and test taking strategy will help them overcome those pre-test jitters and perform at the highest level.
Granite Prep sessions will include all the fundamental of your test (math, grammar, reading, science, quantitive reasoning, etc..), but will also offer students the opportunity to learn how to excel at “test taking intangibles”: test day diet, sleeping to score well, meditation and relaxation to reduce test anxiety, focus training to boost attention, and much more.
At Granite Prep, they encourage students to think about test taking as an athlete might think about an event, considering how both mind and body can work together to perform at the highest level.
MATH | SCIENCE | WRITING | HISTORY | more...
Granite Prep offers subject based tutoring for all ages and almost all subjects. Whether you are high school student struggling with pre-cal or physics, a college student struggling with a history paper or economics problem set, or a lower school student struggling with multiplication tables, Granite Prep has an expert educator for you.
Students working with a Granite Prep educator on classwork will have access to the same brain training exercises as students participating in the test prep curriculum. Our educators are driven to not only help students learn the academic skills needed to thrive in math, science, writing etc… but also to help students learn the intangibles of academic achievement like focus, calm, and attention, through Granite Prep’s proprietary mindfulness-powered brain training exercises.
Granite Prep educators hold advanced degrees and certificates in education and are experts at crafting a program to help you achieve your academic ambitions no matter what the situation. We have worked with valedictorians, struggling students, struggling students who became valedictorians, and everyone in between!
COMMON APP | ESSAY | FAFSA | SCHOLARSHIP
Unfortunately applying to college is not a simple process. Applicants can be overwhelmed by the sea of acronyms and vocabulary: FAFSA, CSS profile, IDOC, HOPE, Common App, TSAC, EFC, and many others can become household words. Let Granite Prep’s expert college councelors help guide you through the process. Support in this complicated time can be important for three reasons. First, as college acceptance rates continue to decrease, acceptance to your dream school becomes ever harder; having expert guidance can ensure that your college essay is concise and captivating, you are only submitting your strongest test scores, and that your activities and resume tell a coherent story. Secondly, college is expensive; working with a Granite Prep financial expert will ensure that you don’t leave money on the table in the form of scholarships and merit awards. Finally, college can be taxing on family life and stressful on parents and students; Granite Prep will ensure that your family finds much needed peace of mind and conviction as you move through this transition. As a mindfulness powered platform, we ensure that all support we provide families is directly contextualized within finding genuine enthusiasm, passion, and calm when thinking about the future.
