For over a decade, Advantage Testing of Austin has helped students prepare for the most important tests of their lives. We have seen first-hand how test preparation can be more than tips and tricks—it is a vehicle for intellectual growth and academic confidence.

We provide one-on-one tutoring for exams including the SAT, ACT, ISEE, SSAT, GMAT, and GRE. Many of our tutors have academic and professional backgrounds in areas such as mathematics, economics, physics, literature, and essay writing. We tutor these and other academics subjects, working closely with educational specialists and counselors to develop strategies for academic and personal success.

Advantage Testing of Austin is located in Westlake Hills. We are also available on campus at the University of Texas at Austin. For students in other cities or those who are traveling, remote tutoring is available. Contact us to discuss your tutoring options.

In partnership with Breakthrough Austin, our tutors design and staff an annual series of SAT and ACT courses for Austin-area students who hope to be the first in their family to attend college.
