For over 20 years, Advantage Testing of Philadelphia has served the local scholastic community, delivering outstanding educational services and helping students reach their academic and professional goals.

We offer one-on-one tutoring for the ACT, SAT, SAT Subject Tests, PSAT, SSAT, ISEE, LSAT, GRE, GMAT, and many academic subjects. Our tutors develop individually tailored programs that complement each student’s schoolwork and guide them to academic and personal success.

Advantage Testing of Philadelphia maintains two tutoring locations, providing our students with easily accessible and exceptional learning environments. Through Advantage Testing of Philadelphia’s original location in the Main Line, our tutors have prepared hundreds of students for college and graduate school admissions exams. Our new location in the Cira Centre carries on that tradition of excellence in West Philadelphia.

Our tutors are also available to Skype with students outside Philadelphia. Contact us to discuss your tutoring options.
