Preparation Strategy

 The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet. ~Aristotle
MyTjprep offers a comprehensive plan to prepare elementary and middle school students for the TJHSST / AOS (Loudoun) Admissions exam. We are committed to working with our students until they obtain all of the skills they need to have a competitive edge in TJHSST / AOS admissions process.

We also prepare students for various competitions, including Word Masters, MathCounts, Continental Math League, Virginia Math League, and the AMC 8 and 10. These competitions are great extracurricular activities that will strengthen students' TJ / AOS applications as well as their resumes in general.

Our Teaching Philosophy

  • MyTJPrep has invested a great deal of time and research into perfecting its learning goals and test taking strategies. These proven strategies have helped our students achieve their fullest potential in TJ Admissions, AOS / PSAT and SAT exams, Math contests, and Computer competitions.
  • Our success is reflected by the impressive MyTjPrep TJ / AOS admission rate. In addition to excellence in test prep, MyTjPrep pursues the goal of making our students proficient learners prepared to take on high school and college. Our primary goal is to help our students develop needed problem solving and critical thinking skills.
  • We are very humbled to note that parents drive their students to our institute not only from in and around the DC area, but from as far as Richmond (~110 miles each way) for our 2.5 hour classes, based solely on the quality of the education we provide.
