ETP was created by three passionate educators who bring decades of experience in independent schools. As teachers, admissions advisors and administrators, our experience over the years prompted our group to create Educational Test Prep, LLC. At ETP, we have observed the pressure parents and their children have been facing in the independent school admissions process, particularly when it comes to standardized testing. In doing so we became determined to create a test preparation course that would alleviate test anxiety and allow children to access the knowledge they’ve gained in the classroom.
We have observed countless students who get good grades and perform well in school, but then turn out test scores below the proficiency they demonstrate in class. Our experience has led us to conclude that standardized tests speak their own language, and through ongoing exposure to testing language, we can naturally become fluent. Thus, ETP has developed a unique and proven method of test preparation, one that calls upon each student’s ability to acquire language through immersion and ongoing exposure. We have piloted a program at an independent school in west Los Angeles and have seen profound and nearly universal score increases. The experiment proved that this program works!
