Our Policies

PandaTree’s AP® Test Prep lessons are taught by AP-experienced tutors using specially designed materials. Tutors spend time before and after each one-on-one lesson preparing individualized feedback for the student. For these reasons, PandaTree’s AP® Test Prep lessons cannot be done with PandaTree’s regular lesson credits. Our policies for PandaTree's AP® Prep Program differ from our normal policies.

PandaTree FAQs

How is PandaTree's Advanced Placement® Prep Program different than regular PandaTree lessons?

PandaTree's AP(R) Prep Program is designed for high school students who will be writing the College Board(R) Advanced Placement Spanish Language and Culture exam, or the Chinese Language and Culture exam in May.

The focus of the course is to help students practice for the exam with realistic exam questions and personalized feedback and coaching by AP-experienced tutors.

The 25-minute lessons can be purchased as single lessons for $65 each, or as a subscription with weekly lessons for $160 for 4 weeks.

The program is taught by AP-experienced tutors using a specially developed curriculum.

Students will generally prepare and submit a practice exam question before each class.

What typically happens before, during and after a lesson?

Before lessons, students will typically prepare a test question and submit it to their tutor 24 hours in advance. Depending on the type of question, the prep work could take 5 to 50 minutes. The tutor will review the work in advance of the class and prepare feedback.

During the class the student and tutor will review the assignment, the tutor will share detailed feedback, and student can make corrections with coaching from the tutor. As needed, they will discuss strategies for best answering that type of question and may do additional practice.

After the class, the student can watch the video of the class for additional review and can practice any new vocabulary added to their personalized word list.
