Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is your hourly rate?
All one-on-one admissions exam tutoring begins at $125 per hour. If a student's preferred meeting location is more than 20 miles from the intersection of Mockingbird Lane and Preston Road (Dallas, Texas), we charge a $25 distance bonus per session to reimburse our instructors for time and travel expense.
Q: Where do students meet with their instructors?
Assuming a distraction-free study environment, a student's home is the default location for all one-on-one tutoring. Please let our office know if your student would prefer to meet in an alternate location (e.g., public library).
Q: Which materials do your instructors use?
Unlike other test prep companies, we reject a "one-size-fits-all" curriculum. As a result, our instructors have the flexibility to customize lessons to your student's specific needs. That said, our instructors primarily utilize official practice questions taken from released exams, which allows students to learn key strategies and concepts in their tested context.
Q: When AND WHERE are practice exams offered?
With some exceptions, proctored practice exams are offered every Saturday morning at 8:00 am at 13155 Noel Road, Suite 900, Dallas, TX 75240. Exam instructions will begin promptly at 8:05 am, and students who arrive late will not be seated. Please make sure your student is aware of both the testing location and strict start time.
Q: MAy i request a specific instructor for my student?
Certainly. However, we cannot guarantee an instructor's immediate availability. Many of our instructors have a large client base of satisfied test prep students, and word of mouth travels quickly. If an instructor is currently at capacity, we would be happy to place your student on a wait list for the next available instruction slot.
Q: Should my student take the ACT® or SAT®?
There are many factors to consider when deciding whether your student should take the ACT or the SAT. (Our website contains a list of major differences between the two exams here.) Your student's in-person diagnostic will provide a data-driven starting point for this decision, and we will guide you in selecting the exam best suited to your student's individual strengths and weaknesses.
Q: Do you Also offer college counseling services?
No, Pegasus Test Prep does not offer college counseling services. We confidently refer all of our clients to Catherine Marrs at Marrs College Admission Advisors. Catherine Marrs is a Certified Educational Planner with more than 15 years of college advising experience, and her expert insights into the complex application process are an invaluable complement to our test prep services.
