Introduction: Thinque Prep is the only educational consulting firm to have a tutor who has achieved both a perfect 1600 the SAT and a perfect 36 on the ACT. Please see our pictures for proof! Thinque Prep specializes in the personalized mentorship of students and their families through the entire pre-college process. We have experts in the SAT, ACT, SSAT, ISEE, AP exams, and college admissions. With so many recent changes to college admissions process -- standardized tests, financial aid, the application process -- the educational landscape has never been more competitive or confusing. We are here from the first summer program to the last college acceptance letter. Our experts even provide support for students who need pre-professional support in college. We don't just "tutor," just "prepare students for tests," or just "edit essays." We prepare students to become contributing members of society. We closely work with students in three categories -- academic inquiry, personal development, and holistic educational planning. There's nothing as satisfying as helping a young person figure out how to put their best foot forward. It's never too early to start thinking about college, so give us a call for a complimentary consultation today!

Test Prep Services

We used Thinque prep for both admissions and test preparation. This year was a difficult year with the pandemic but Michael and Nina were both there to guide our Isabella to a great test score. She improved 150 points and will be using her improved score for her college applications.

Test Prep Services

We were happy to have met Joyee and his team. They were able to get us in last minute for a consultation and a first lesson and during that meeting my son replied and said 'this guy really knows his stuff.' I'm looking forward to seeing the results.

ACT Tutoring

I cannot say enough about Thinque Prep and Joyee Lin. He is dedicated to his students success and does a very thorough job of preparing them for the ACT or SAT test. My son, Zack, who is very bright but requires a lot of patience worked with Joyee over the summer and brought his composite ACT score up from 30 to 33. His math score increased a full 4 pts. and he scored a 35 in English. Thinque Prep has other services related to tutoring and college application preparation. Zack will be working with Joyee on his college application essays. Joyee is in California and we are in Texas but this was never an issue as the sessions are done via video chat. The office manager Jen was great to work with and the appointment process was easy to navigate. I found the rates to be very competitive for like services. If there was a way to give extra stars I would!!

College Admissions Counseling

Thinque Prep was an amazing asset to my family and I. This was my first child and I was extremely confused with the all the rules and requirements that colleges have these days. I met with Joyee and he helped clarify everything. He walked me through a timeline for testing, course selection. He help set up my son for a proper testing schedule. We talked through colleges in depth. He connected me with a world class research opportunity for my son. He also hosted a essay workshop over the summer where he invited actual college representatives to work with the students. They read through his essays and gave him constructive criticism. I can't thank him enough for all his help, and we will be continuing to use his services -- in both test preparation and college guidance -- for all my children.

ACT Tutoring

Joyee of Thinque Prep was able to offer comprehensive services not just in tutoring, but in test preparation and college counseling. He is extremely knowledgeable and able to help improve ACT and SAT scores. But, he also is very helpful on guiding the student into which types of schools would be a good fit for him/her. He and his team were able to work hard to help my son out. My son boosted his SAT scores high enough to qualify for a $19k scholarship at his number 1 college. Thanks so much!
