About Us

Gold Test Prep (GTP) was established in January 2010 by a group of Harvard students who genuinely believed in the value of personal instruction offered at an affordable price. Ever since, we’ve delivered quality instruction for college and graduate school entrance exams and have also helped clients navigate the application process.

Our Method

Practice Exams

Practice makes perfect. Our courses emphasize constant practice so that you get intimately familiar with how the writers of the test think. Then, you can beat them at their own game.

Unparalleled Expertise

Our tutors are all graduates or students at elite institutions around the country. They have personal insight into each test they specialize in, and top scores to back it up.

Continual Review

We review missed or skipped problems at least twice to solidify new vocabulary or concepts before applying new material to new problems. We aim for maximum retention and comfort with the material.

Proven Results

Each of our students have seen their scores improve after completing one of our courses. Contact us and we'll do our best to help you fulfill your academic dreams.
