At LogicPrep, we are a mind gym – an intellectual but highly sociable team of tutors, mentors and coaches to students. In plain terms, we are a radically different brand of college test prep (SAT/ACT/Subject Tests/APs) and advising that makes the student – the whole student – our priority, and creates an entrepreneurial, intellectually curious, joyous, and compassionate environment for learning and self-discovery. This tone is set by our brain trust of tutors and advisers, whose EQs are just as high as their IQs. Through one-on-one support, they help students appreciate all forms of intelligence, become the best version of themselves, and get into colleges where they will thrive, not just as scholars but as human beings.
