SAT Subject test prep

Looking for an opportunity to showcase your skills beyond the SAT? Let AJ Tutoring help you with the SAT Subject Tests.

SAT Subject test prep sessions


We meet with students for three or four 90-minute sessions per subject, and students complete two 60-minute practice tests for homework.

Course Content

We cover test-taking skills such as timing, guessing strategy, and question interpretation. Based on a student’s performance on the first practice test, we pinpoint and fill in content gaps.


We use proprietary materials, updated annually to reflect the current content and format of each SAT subject test.


Insider tip:

 While we have an excellent record of success with all of the subjects, our biggest score increases come from the Math Level 2 SAT Subject Test, with many students improving over 100 points.

More information about the SAT Subject Tests

Unlike the broad SAT, the SAT Subject tests focus on specific subjects taught in school. Because students are already preparing for finals at the end of the junior year, May or June is a good time to take the SAT Subject tests. Acing the SAT Subject tests is a great way to show what you’ve learned throughout the year.

The best way to see which SAT Subject tests are right for you is to take practice tests and score them. You can also order The Official Study Guide for All SAT Subject Tests through the College Board.

Although the University of California system no longer requires the SAT Subject tests, it recommends them for students seeking to distinguish themselves in a competitive field. A few colleges that recommend or require two SAT Subject tests or the ACT are Brown University, Georgetown University, Caltech, Rice University, and Tufts University.
