With so many demands, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with the testing process without guidance from an industry expert.

I have been a private Test Prep Tutor since 2007, helping legions of students get to their dream schools.

 I have partnered with cognitive assessment companies, essay writing coaches, academic and admissions advisors, and mindfulness experts to help my students navigate the testing process easily and manage any obstacles on the way. Let's choose the right course for you.

From choosing the right test, to developing s study plan, I offer support at every step. Best of all, I take the stress out of test preparation.

I hit a plateau in my GRE practice test scores after 3 months of intense self-study and had only a few weeks ahead of the MBA application deadlines. I reached out to Anna, who was unfazed by the time crunch and immediately outlined a systematic strategy. She directed my learning and practice based on my weaknesses. She also helped me grow out of old habits and tweak my mindset to become an efficient test-taker. My score improved drastically and was well above my target schools' averages. I got admitted to several top MBA programs and am Wharton-bound this fall. I couldn't have done it without Anna's support!

I wanted to reach out and thank you for all of your preparatory work with Zachary for the SAT.  He has received a scholarship award of $33,500 per year for five years.  Zach's counselor said this scholarship grant was likely due to his 1500 SAT score.  Clearly well worth the small amount of compensation we paid to you for working with Zach. Again, just a huge thank you!


Knowing what to expect from a college standardized test gives a student a major advantage. Feeling confident when you walk into the test center contributes to great results.

Anna guides her students through the maze of questions and information so thoroughly, that they are extremely prepared.  Her tips on how to take the tests are invaluable. Having Anna as a tutor helps to calm your child and let them focus on an overwhelming situation. It's the best investment a parent can make. We were lucky to have found Anna!

Anna was thorough and supportive. With her help, I am working on my graduate degree at a top tier program.

Anna tutored my three sons for the ACT. Her style of teaching was structured and thorough. She held the boys accountable by giving prep work in between sessions. The best news is that it worked. All three students were very happy with their scores (and so were their parents)!  We highly recommend Anna!!


Anna Silverman tutored our daughter for the ACT over four months. Anna is highly professional. While focusing on the content of the test itself, she was also able to understand our daughter’s most problematic academic areas and psychological insecurities. Not only did our daughter’s score improve to a much more competitive level, but she also developed confidence in her knowledge and resilience in dealing with tests and other academic challenges.

Anna Silverman is the consummate professional. She was punctual, organized, and flexible. Most importantly – she really knew her stuff!

Our friends told us that time with Anna was a worthwhile investment, and they were right; my son’s scores improved tremendously under Anna’s tutelage.


Anna worked with my two daughters on ACT and SATII prep.  Her tutoring style worked very well for both of them.  Her demeanor is very relaxed, which is helpful when kids feel stressed about testing.  She did not come with a set lesson plan that was general for all students, but rather focused on what each girl needed to work on.  She also spent a lot of time on test-taking strategies.  She gave them a lot of work to do, which we found very helpful, as neither of my daughters would have worked so hard if it hadn't been assigned.  She was also very encouraging throughout the process.  In the end, both of my daughters saw big improvements in their scores!

When my daughter needed a tutor we knew we wanted someone who had experience working with students from the Bergen County Academies and understood all of the pressures to do well on the exam (both school and personal pressures).  Anna was referred by another BCA parent so we felt confident that Anna would understand the BCA expectations.  During the course of the tutoring lessons Anna helped my daughter learn how to pace herself through the exams, explained strategies, and gave her constructive and/or positive feedback on her progress.  Knowing that Anna was able to give our daughter the ability to focus and do well on the exam was very reassuring.  Our daughter's test results put her in an excellent position when applying to college.  Thank you Anna!

-The F Family

Anna tutored my two daughters and we have recommended her to many friends. Anna had a tremendous impact! She motivated both my children, improved their scores, and helped them get into their first choice school. Anna was the best tutor we have ever had in every sense of the word. She was tough and demanding with the kids but did it in a way that motivated them to work hard. You are hiring a gem!
