Owned and operated by experienced Ridgewood High School graduates Sarah Burton Kahandaliyanage and Meaghan Ozaydin, Aspen Tutoring offers highly effective preparation for the SAT and ACT, centered on in-depth review of key topics, test-taking strategies, and extensive practice. All sessions, both one-on-one and small group, are taught in a quiet home setting conducive to learning. We recognize that the college admissions process can be nerve-racking for students. We strive to boost their self-confidence and give them a sense of mastery over the test-taking phase of the process.

Aspen Tutoring

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

Small group classes and one-on-one sessions are conducted in a quiet and relaxed home setting just a few blocks from downtown Ridgewood. We begin with a complimentary meeting to assess each student’s skill level and develop a unique program of study. We see students daily 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.
