Group Class FAQ

What happens after I register?

Someone from our team will contact you within 24 hours of registering to answer any questions you have and to confirm payment details. You and your student will also be sent login information for your tutoring portals. This will allow you to access and sync your class calendar. 

What do the group classes cover?

Students start by learning the overarching skills and strategies that allow them to navigate the SAT and ACT more effectively, then dive deeper into the nuances of the test. This includes, but is not limited to:​

  • Gaining insights into how the exam makers design test questions, which allows students to stay one step ahead. 

  • Developing a plan of attack when it comes to reading and annotating passages, understanding questions, and navigating distracting answer choices in the Reading section.

  • Learning the fundamental skills and nuanced language rules that are necessary to succeed in the Writing section.

  • Understanding best patterns and practices for the notoriously tricky questions and strenuous pacing of the Math section.

  • Diving into what "Science" means on standardized tests, and how to understand what those questions are actually asking of students.

  • Identifying a time management and pacing strategy that enables students to not only survive but thrive during a 3-hour exam! 


Will my student take practice tests?

In addition to live classroom time, students will have access to unlimited practice tests. Marigold Prep will score, review, and analyze every test they take, and every family will receive a data-driven report with detailed and personalized feedback. 

How many students are in each class?

Classes run with a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 6 students to ensure personalized, comprehensive, and collaborative instruction.  

What are the payment details?

Credit card information is required to hold your student's spot, but we will not charge your credit card. Instead, someone from our team will follow up with you within 24 hours to discuss and confirm payment options. 


How do I know if a group class is right for my student? 

Give us a call at (415) 237-3377 or book a complimentary consultation here! We can discuss your student's testing history (if any), goals, and needs to help determine if a group, individual, or customized hybrid program is appropriate.
