Monmouth Test Preparation Services is unlike any other test prep option available.

studentsWe offer the cost-efficient and personalized service of a single, local "off-the-books" tutor. At the same time, we are able to offer our own unique strategies and rigorous courses, like the large test prep firms. With MTPS, the same individuals who developed the strategies will be teaching them.

Everything we do at Monmouth Test Preparation Services focuses on allowing the student to simplify and de-stress the exam experience. Our strategies eliminate wasted time, limit distractions, and allow the student’s natural talents to shine through. Whereas many other tutors merely sit idly by while students repeatedly test, we know that preparation goes well beyond simple familiarity. We leave no stone unturned when it comes to preparing our students. We discuss everything from testing registration to properly managing the test day experience. There will be no surprises on test day when you work with us.
