was an early pioneer of test preparation. It had
its first students in 1975. Its founder, Mr.
Miles Fulton Pewitt, had recently finished law school
but was interested in creating a business that utilized
his best skill: doing well in standardized tests.
a legal career was a dubious choice in those days.
Prep courses were not popular and in some cases
were even considered to be gimmicky business activities.
At that time many people considered that tests such
as the SAT measured a student’s math and reading
ability. Miles knew that for the most part, this
test really measured the student’s ability to take
seemed contemptuous to the educational establishment.
For years and years the creator of the SAT, the
Educational Testing Service (ETS), claimed that
prep programs were a waste of time and money. Their
reasoning - they claimed that the SAT was not manipulable
and measured long-term skills that could not be
taught in short periods of time. With such claims
coming from such a prominent source, Studyworks’
early years were difficult. Slowly Studyworks grew
and times have changed. We are now the third largest
SAT prep group in America and have courses coast
to coast. More remarkable is the fact that ETS now
promotes its own preparation programs.
we have grown substantially, we endeavor to maintain
the quality and concern that we have had for over
25 years. Our teachers are the best-paid and best-trained
teachers. Good teachers must not only have advanced
degrees, but must also prove that they can motivate
students. Studyworks’ philosophy to test preparation
has always been that teachers should not only know
their subject material - they must also know how
to deliver it in a fun and interesting fashion.
Our decision to limit our services to just test
preparation and tutorial classes has enormous drawbacks
economically, however, it allows us to concentrate
on the strategies that are peculiar to those exam.
But our subject limitation and our teaching philosophy
are not the only things separating us from our competitors.
We have distinctively
better guarantees, schedules, and prices. Our maximum
class size is 15 students. However, it is rare for
all classes to fill up to their maximum and on the
average, you should expect about 12 students in
your class. We also have the only 200-point guarantee
in the industry for our SAT program. Even if your
score improves, we will give you $10 for every 20
points you fall short of the 200-point goal.
gives the student some assurance that Studyworks
is dedicated to their improvement. More importantly,
it gives Studyworks the best record of how well
its students improve. Since Studyworks requires
a copy of the official results from students if
they do not improve 200 points (and actually pays
the student for sub - 200 point improvements), only
Studyworks has a statistically valid way to measure
student performance. Average improvement on the
SAT is 180 points for students who scored between
1400 & 1600 before attending the Studyworks
(Singapore), we recognize the needs of the local
students in preparing for their education. These
include test preparation (SSAT, SAT, etc.,),
school preparation (tutorial classes in English,
Math and Literature) as well as language preparation
(English, Mandarin classes). For a full range

Studyworks is "the real Prep source"!
this has provided an adequate summation of how Studyworks
has evolved over the past 25 years.
