For more than 25 years, Advantage Testing of Long Island has set and raised the bar for excellence in educational services in Long Island. Launched by Vairam Alagappan in 1990, we have prepared thousands of students for standardized tests and academic courses, helping them reach their academic and professional goals.

Our services include preparation for the SCAT, SSAT, ISEE, CHSEE, AMC 8, AMC 10, AMC 12, ACT, SAT, SAT Subject Tests, AP Exams, GRE, GMAT, LSAT, DAT, and other standardized tests. Additionally, we provide academic tutoring in a wide range of subjects from middle school through graduate school, college application counseling, and interview training for college and professional jobs, including management consulting.

Advantage Testing of Long Island serves students throughout Long Island from the Hamptons to Queens. Open 7 days a week, our office is a few blocks north of the LIE service road and the Northern State Parkway, and we are within walking distance of the Roslyn LIRR station on the Oyster Bay Branch. Our standalone building was designed exclusively for tutoring and testing in order to provide our students with an outstanding learning environment.

In addition to in-person tutoring, our tutors work with students in Canada, Europe, and several domestic and international boarding schools via Skype. Interested students should speak with our program consultant to discuss distance tutoring options.
