Advantage Testing of Westport provides exceptional educational services throughout Connecticut. Launched by Westport native Alex Freedman, who has over 15 years of experience, Advantage Testing of Westport has a growing number of tutors who help students realize their academic and professional goals.

Our services include preparation for all standardized tests such as the ACT, SAT, AP Exams, GRE, GMAT, and LSAT, tutoring in a wide range of academic subjects (including all levels of math through multivariable calculus, US and world history, government, biology, chemistry, and physics), writing instruction, and college application counseling. Working with educators, counselors, and learning specialists, we develop individually tailored programs that complement each student’s schoolwork and achieve a consistent strategy for success.

Director Alex Freedman, a graduate of Staples High School, has a deep understanding of the public and private schools in Fairfield and New Haven Counties. We have successfully worked with students from Greenwich Academy, St. Luke’s School, Staples High School, Greens Farms Academy, King School, Hopkins School, Greenwich High School, Darien High School, Wilton High School, and many more.

Serving families from Greenwich to New Haven, Advantage Testing of Westport maintains tutoring offices in both Westport and Darien that provide our students with convenient learning environments. We also tutor students remotely; if you are interested, speak with our program consultant to discuss your tutoring options. Collectively, we have worked with over 1,000 students, not just in Connecticut but also in Europe, China, India, Australia, and Africa.

This summer, we are offering new online courses: a Creative Writing Workshop, an AP Chemistry Boot Camp, and a Computer Science Boot Camp.
