A privately-held, family-owned and -operated test preparation center, TestMagic has been supporting successful academic and standardized exam achievement among Bay Area students since opening its first learning center in San Francisco in 1998. Over the years, TestMagic has grown from a single storefront to multiple learning centers catering to the academic requirements of students ranging from grade-school tutoring all the way to graduate exam preparation. Throughout this period of growth, our commitment to the communities in which we work has never wavered. We work hard to become part of the fabric of families whose children attend our classes, as we believe that education is a holistic process that includes parents, teachers, and tutors alike. Our focus on the needs and goals of each individual has guided TestMagic from its beginnings and is the driving force behind both why we do what we do and how we do it.
We refer to our different physical locations as “learning centers” because we do so much more than just prepare students for success and standardized tests. In addition to our test-prep services, TestMagic offers private, one-to-one subject-specific tutoring designed to help students improve aptitude in a particular subject, prepare for a difficult test or research and complete a challenging assignment. And as with all of our learning programs, the student’s needs are paramount. So, great care and consideration are given to matching the tutor with the student. We go beyond just aligning subject expertise, looking as well for compatibility and respect in the student-teacher relationship to create a learning engagement that builds student self-confidence and initiative. Our students don’t just come out with a higher grade in a class or better result on a test—they carry with them a sense of accomplishment that that will carry them to future self-driven success.
