Teaching Students

Why Choose Us?

Prep1on1 was founded in 2007 by Wendy Goldstein. She saw a gap in the educational market and envisioned a company comprised of highly trained and dedicated instructors who provide the best individualized tutoring within the DMV. We continue to hold ourselves accountable to these values.

Customized Curriculum

We create a customized plan that begins with students taking our complimentary, signature BESTtest diagnostic.

This allows us to determine which entrance exam is most suited based on their educational strengths. Once we have the results from the BESTtest, our Prep 1 on 1 team will discuss the next steps with the student and their family. During this consultation, we will create a comprehensive plan that details the most effective one-on-one approach.

Our Team Of Tutors

We are proud to have a team of well-educated, accomplished tutors. Each one of our Prep 1 on 1 tutors passed the rigorous training process and strict screening method.

We consider the tutors part of our team, as they have the mutual desire to see students reach their highest potential. In addition, our tutors have a proven track record working with high school students to boost confidence and overcome test-taking obstacles.

Convenient Scheduling

We know our clients are often busy with classes, homework, sports, and other after school activities.

Because of this, we create tutoring timelines to fit into each student’s daily schedule. We offer the options of tutoring at our Potomac office, your home, a public library, or select private schools.

Personalized Support
and Customer Service

It’s completely understandable that challenges often arise during the test prep and studying journey.

Our team is here to maintain ongoing communication with students and parents to answer any questions and provide feedback. Plus, our tutors will send detailed notes following each tutoring session. In addition, Prep 1 on 1 emails periodic newsletters containing relevant information about our services and testing. Clients can log-in to our personalized, online tracking system to review weekly homework test scores.
