Can you tell me about TestMagic students?

  • All of our students have one thing in common--they want to raise their test scores. Some students start studying with us quite early (a few years before they need to take their tests), but a few begin studying at TestMagic with only a month or two to prepare for their tests.
  • Most TestMagic students are high school students or middle school students and attend such schools as Lowell High School, Lincoln High School, University High School, Urban High School, Lick-Wilmerding, Chinese-American International School, Sacred Heart, Saint Ignatius, and many others. Many students travel from Marin County, the South Bay, or the East Bay to attend TestMagic.

What is TestMagic like?

  • TestMagic is a place for you to come to raise your score. Many students study for many hours after class at TestMagic. We like all of our students to stay as long as they want to study, to ask questions, to use the computers, etc. We have created the ideal study environment for hardworking students.
  • TestMagic is a small school and we focus on each student as a unique person. We are truly devoted to helping our students reach their academic goals in the United States. Because TestMagic is a small school, we can offer you better advice than other people can because we know all of our students very well.

Why should I study at TestMagic?

  • In a word, you should study at TestMagic to raise your score. All of our test prep classes have one goal--to raise your score. We will not teach you something that is not related to your test. For example, if you are studying for the TOEFL, you will not learn pronunciation or read the newspaper. You will only learn how to raise your TOEFL score. TestMagic knows the tests extremely well. We spend all of our time working with students and researching the tests. We honestly believe we have one of the best test preparation schools in the world.
  • We are test experts--we spend thousands of hours developing materials and teaching methods for our classes and students.
  • We have the latest computer software and materials for the test that you are preparing for.

What can TestMagic do for me that other schools cannot do?

  • TestMagic teachers are coaches, not just teachers. In other words, we work with you one-on-one to make sure that you do the best that you can do.
  • We will work with you and show you the best way to raise your score. Most of our students spend six to ten hours per day studying. We will give you a personalized study plan and tell you what you need to do to raise your score.
  • We will help to keep you motivated. One of our jobs is to help you want to study. We will do anything we can to help you keep up a good attitude!
  • We plan each class according to the needs of our students. We do not follow a pre-determined plan like many other "cookie cutter" courses. For example, if we see that some students are having a really difficult time understanding GMAT sentence correction, we will prepare a special lesson for those students so that they will learn the area they need to focus on.
