Inspirica’s Approach ToAP Test Preparation
Inspirica was the first tutoring firm in the world to prepare students for Advanced Placement tests beyond what teachers were doing in class. When we started AP tutoring 30 years ago, students were seeking to be placed in a more advanced class during their freshman year or to graduate early. Today, AP tutoring is extremely popular because students know that a 4 or 5 AP score is yet another opportunity to showcase more great scores on a college application.
We have seen and analyzed every AP test that has been published over the past 30 years. As a result, we know every permutation and variation of question type and have created our own proprietary test strategies using our vast knowledge of the test. We have seen each type of question and every variation of question type. Additionally, on a pedagogical and psychological level, we have worked with every type of student, and we will know how best to inspire and motivate your child to achieve his or her personal best score on each AP test.
Our approach is, of course, personalized, and each tutor uses the initial diagnostic to craft an individualized course of action focusing primarily on shoring up strengths and attending to areas that need support. Our preparation has both a strategic and a psychological component because scoring well means going into the test with both a mastery of the material and an attitude of confidence and success.
Contact us and we will move forward, creating a uniquely customized tutoring plan that’s targeted and time efficient and that we are confident will give your student the best chance for a great AP score.

Frequently Asked Questions
AP Test Preparation 101
Advanced Placement (AP) tests are offered in a wide range of subjects and are typically taken at the end of year-long courses in the relevant subject matter. AP tests are two- to three-hour exams combining multiple-choice sections and free-response questions and are intended to simulate a final exam for a college course. As such, a great score on an AP test can earn a student the ability to place out of required college courses and earn college credit. Each college and university has different AP credit policies, but many offer some sort of reward for high scores. Furthermore, taking AP tests makes a serious statement about the rigor of a student’s high school curriculum and shows ambition and a student’s drive to take on a challenge that can impress admissions officers. AP tests will cover one academic year’s worth of material, and expert support from an Inspirica tutor can help push a student from proficient to college credit worthy! Inspirica has tutors who can offer this specialized, professional support and who know the format and grading rubric intimately. Your Inspirica tutor will not only help prepare your student for the content he or she must know but also teach crucial game-changing test strategies.
