Intensive preparation for the SAT test in Reading, Math, and Writing & Language and the ACT test in English, Math, Reading, and Science, and the SAT Literature and Mathematics Level 1 and Level 2 Subject Tests, as well as college essay and admissions coaching.

Our approach centers on in-depth review of key topics, test-taking strategies, and extensive practice to familiarize students with the test material and format. Students receive ACT and SAT prep books containing full-length practice tests at no charge, tests from the College Board and ACT websites, and recent SATs and ACTs that have not been published.

Aspen Tutoring

We offer comprehensive preparation for all sections of the SAT and ACT exams, as well as assistance with college essays and the college admissions process. Combined, we have over 20 years’ experience as tutors and teachers, including at the college level. We are committed to helping our students realize their potential and present their best academic profiles to college admissions officers.

Aspen Tutoring is conveniently located in a quiet and comfortable home two blocks from downtown Ridgewood. We begin with a complimentary session to assess each student’s skill level and develop a unique program of study. We see students daily from 3:00pm until 9:30pm.

Marlene Burton founded Aspen Tutoring in 2008. She chose the name Aspen for its symbolism. The aspen tree is fast growing, has deep roots, and has leaves that shimmer to maximize exposure to sunlight. It is adaptable and resilient.
