Exclusive Summer

Test Prep Program


Thinque Prep proudly hosts its annual summer test preparation workshop. The program is designed to aid students in developing the proper foundations to approach the SAT and ACT tests. While other (shorter) classes only focus on "test hacks," we take the time to really delve into the foundations of reading, writing, grammar, and mathematics so that students can develop the skills to succeed on both the SAT and ACT. We cap our class sizes at 8 students so that students are to receive individual assistance as well. This class is co-taught by Joyee Lin, perfect score recipient on the ACT and SAT, and Nina Calabretta, a college English instructor.

* In an effort to continue serving families with travel restrictions as well as public health concerns, this course will be offered both online and in-person.  Both classes will be following the same curriculum.

Hello, students and parents! My name's Joyee. (Pronounced "Joey" like the baby kangaroo.) I'm a test preparation expert and personal guide for students in high school pushing hard to achieve their goals - and setting them up for success in their next stage in life.

  • Students are expected to complete an average of 3-4 hours per week of assignments on their own outside of class.

  • Because class size will be capped, students are expected to be active participants in the classroom setting.

  • Make-up lessons will not be allowed. If students wish to have a make-up lesson, families will be asked to purchase one of the additional private tutoring hours. We have provided the final 4 evening classes as review sessions so that students will be able to review any material missed.
