Test Preparation & Mock Testing

Following our mission to ensure students learn well, we use test preparation as a framework to teach students about content, test-taking strategy and pacing approaches that capitalize on their strengths and help them with specific ways to overcome challenges.

Our tutors are skilled educators who instruct with sound pedagogy. We also offer mock testing in order to inform instruction.

We offer test preparation in private tutoring sessions at students' homes, our office, and remotely. Our clients are welcome to put together small groups for tutoring, and we also contract with schools to offer test preparation for NNAT/OLSAT, AABL, NYS ELA & Math Exams, ISEE, SSAT, Hunter High School Entrance Exam, CTP-5, SHSAT, HSPT, TACHS, Regents, SAT and ACT Exams.

"When I began consulting with families, I had to learn so much about this business and this aspect of the education field the hard way. This course aims to empower other certified educators to successfully consult with families on anything from school placement to educational planning.  I walk you through the lessons I have learned in establishing an amazingly successful consulting practice here in NYC. My goal is to provide educators, who know they have the potential to make a difference in the lives of students through a consulting practice, with the tools they need to work with clients and make a strong living doing so."- Mary Miele.

I founded Evolved Education in 2014 in order to provide holistic tutoring to students. I, along with my colleagues, including Deanna Hyslop, explored our approach to tutoring.

We created the Evolved Education Paradigm in 2016 and published Supporting School: A Guidebook for Parents and Educators as a tool to provide a road map for supporting students well.

Deanna and I spoke at the International ADDCA Conference where we presented an aspect of our book, specifically our SEPAQ Inventory, which aimed to screen a student's social, emotional, and physical development. Using this tool, we aimed to understand these important areas of a student's functioning both in and out of school. We feel strongly that these areas of a student's development impact their academic performance and their ability to progress through a tutoring program.

In the years which have followed our initial work at Evolved, I have remained curious about a student's learning experience. This has caused me to update my understanding of our paradigm. I now include areas such as Thinking and Behavior, Executive Functioning, and School Match within the paradigm I consider when thinking about a student and their learning experience.

What remains steadfast for me is my desire to ensure that every student learns well. I am obsessed with this company and wish for it to define the landscape of tutoring and education consulting.

In our work, I wish to provide each of our clients with services and information which enable them to learn well. I am committed to the quality of our work and the people who work here and who we serve.

At present, Evolved Education is operating in a place that is beyond my wildest dreams, and yet, it is still within the realm of my vision. For here at Evolved, we are all evolving constantly - learning well, supporting each other, and achieving our goals.

I am always happy to hear from you and thank you for your interest in Evolved Education!

Warmest regards,


Learning Specialist & Education Consultant

Mary E. Miele
