Personalized Test Prep & Tutoring


About Me

Jay Lipman founded Test Your Best in 2003 and has been dedicated to test prep since 1999. For over 20 years he has been sharing his proprietary strategies with students, training tutors, and mentoring test-prep professionals. An NYU School of Law graduate, Jay maintains membership in the Connecticut Bar.

About Our Students

TYB students come from around the world in search of expert guidance for higher scores. Some attend school locally, others are at boarding school or college, and yet others are working professionals.  Whether taking the LSAT, GMAT, GRE, ACT, or SAT, our students consistently earn dramatic score increases and gain admittance to their top choice schools.

About Our Services

Long before remote learning became necessary, Jay already had developed his online tutoring system in order to help boarding school students in the U.S. and working professionals in Europe and Asia. Students sometimes start with in-person tutoring and continue with online sessions when they move away. International students sometimes do the bulk of their work remotely and then “turn local” a few weeks before their test, working more intensely as test day approaches.

In the DC metro area test prep can take place in-home, although remote tutoring is now the more common choice of venue.

Every goal-oriented tutoring session runs from 1.5 - 2 hours.

Additional Services

We Can Help With:

We help many of our students polish their essays and make their way through the application process.

Academic Tutoring
