Terms and Conditions

Tutoring Policies

A parent or guardian must be home for the entirety of any sessions taking place in the home. Tutoring sessions may also be held in a public place such as a library. Any student dissatisfied with the quality of instruction after the first session is entitled to a repeat of the first session with a new tutor at no extra charge, see guarantee.

Students are responsible for canceling scheduled tutoring sessions at least 48 hours in advance of the scheduled tutoring time. If a student does not cancel a scheduled session at least 48 hours in advance, he or she may forfeit that tutoring session at the discretion of their tutor and this may result in being charged in full for that session. Students are responsible for coordinating the schedule of all tutoring sessions with their tutor. There will be no refunds given on any unused tutoring sessions. Tutoring sessions can be transferred or “gifted” to a sibling, friend, or any person of your choosing.

Cancellation Policy

The cancellation of any Revolution Prep small group course (SGC) or on-campus program is subject to a minimum 10% cancellation fee per student. If you have enrolled in a private tutoring program, at least one session must be completed prior to any cancellation request. If materials have been shipped, a refund will be processed once Revolution Prep receives the complete set of unused materials to our home office. Once issued, refunds typically take 5-7 days to post. Refunds will not be issued once a course or private tutoring program begins. In the event of a scheduling conflict, any course enrollment can be moved to another location or rescheduled to a later session without penalty. No refunds will be issued for any Virtual Tutor course.

In the event that a school or Revolution Prep cancels a practice test that is not part of a course, all payments for this practice test are considered a donation to the school and are non-refundable. If requested, Revolution Prep will mail a practice test to the student. Once the test is completed and mailed back to Revolution Prep (postage not included), Revolution Prep will grade and post the score on the student dashboard for review.

Late Registration/Missed Classes

There will be no prorating or refunds given due to late registration or missed classes. Each student is encouraged to make up any missed classes at another location or in a future round. Students may also purchase individual tutoring blocks to make up missed classes. Unused tutoring blocks will not be refunded, however they may be used for future tutoring sessions in any subject that can be reasonably staffed.

Practice Exams

Score reports should be posted on the student dashboard within 7-10 days of taking the practice exams. Please note that hard copies for practice exams will be disposed of three weeks after taking the test. Please check you scores regularly and contact us immediately should there be any problems so that issues may be addressed in a timely manner. For exam concerns please contact 877-738-7737.

Guarantee Details

Please note that if you exercise one of the guarantees detailed below, you will not be eligible for other guarantee offers. In order to receive any of the benefits of our guarantees, the student must meet all of the Revolution Prep Graduation Requirements. We define Graduation as follows: the student must attend every class, take all five practice exams included in your test materials on a timely basis (all sections and essays whether assigned or not), and complete all homework assignments in order to graduate from the Revolution Prep program.

Readiness and Satisfaction Guarantee

If you take a full-length SAT®/ACT® prep course(defined as any Revolution course for the SAT/ACT with a minimum of 18 hours of direct instruction,) and you don’t feel ready to take the test, or are unsatisfied with our course for any reason, you are entitled to repeat the course. When repeating a course, the student must supply their own materials and purchase a new set of tests.

If you have 18 hours or more of tutoring for the SAT or ACT, and you don’t feel ready to take the test, or are unsatisfied for any reason, you can enroll in a Group Course (either on campus or online). When choosing this option, the tutoring student must supply their own materials and purchase a new set of tests.

Love Your Instructor Guarantee

For Group Courses, if you don’t love classroom instructor, you will be allowed to change to a different course with the same format (but you can change from classroom to online if that better suits you).

For private and academic tutoring, if you don’t love your tutor, we will find you a different tutor that will be a better match, and you can then repeat the first tutoring session for free. In the event that there are no other tutors in your area for the subject you are taking, you can choose to do your tutor sessions via our live online classroom.

Money Back Guarantee

If you take a full-length SAT/ACT prep course (defined as any Revolution course for the SAT/ACT with a minimum of 18 hours of direct instruction) or an 18 hour or more tutoring program, and your official test score does not improve by at least 10 points on the SAT or 1 point on the ACT, you are eligible for a full refund. You must meet the following Graduation Requirements:

  • You attend all sessions, take all five practice tests provided in your course materials, and complete all homework within the time period scheduled for your program.
  • You take the official test within 10 weeks following the final session of your program.
  • You present your official test score report to us and request a full refund within 8 weeks following the official test.

How We Measure Improvement

For purposes of measuring improvement, we consider an official test score to be your total, official SAT/ACT score (all sections combined). Your “Baseline Score” will be determined as follows:

  • If you have taken an official SAT/ACT test six months or less before the start of any Revolution Prep course, your Baseline Score will be your prior official SAT/ACT score.
  • If you have not taken an official SAT/ACT test six months or less before the start of your SAT/ACT, your Baseline Score will be the result of your first Revolution Prep practice test.
  • We will compare your Baseline Score with the results of your score on the official test you take within 10 weeks following the final session of the Revolution Prep course.

Revolution Results Guarantee

Revolution Group Course, Hybrid Course and Online Course Students – Not happy with your score? Want more time to prepare? Want to boost your score even more? Loved the course so much you want to take it again?

If you did not raise your score by 200 points on the SAT test**, by 3 points on the ACT test**, or if you’re not satisfied for any reason, just give us a call. As long as you go to class, take the practice exams, and do your homework you will meet our graduation requirements and can repeat the Group Course for free. You must use your original class materials and can purchase another set of 5 practice exams. (Repeat of Hybrid Course only includes Group Course class.)

Revolution Tutoring Students – We guarantee your tutor will be the right fit. If you’re not satisfied with your first session, we’ll replace your tutor and repeat the session for free. All tutoring students who have completed at least 20 hours of tutoring with Revolution Prep may attend the entire Group Course free of charge (using original materials) after meeting the graduation requirements for his or her program.

Measuring test score improvement – We will compare the results of your official SAT or ACT test taken within 30 days of completing our course or tutoring program with either a) your first practice test score, or b) an official SAT or ACT test score taken within 6 months of the beginning of our course or tutoring program.


We reserve the right to reschedule or cancel any course. Factors outside of Revolution Prep’s control may affect class schedules. In such events, we do our best to schedule a convenient make-up class; however, we cannot guarantee a make-up session will be scheduled or that the make-up will fit the schedule of every student. If a student misses an exam he or she is welcome to take it at home and mail in the answer sheets to Revolution Prep or take the test online for immediate scoring. Exams should be placed in a manila envelope with the correct postage.
