AP/IB Test

We work in tandem with local school curricula so that students have a chance to reinforce their understanding of the material. Instead of cramming for the test in the spring, our students prepare from day one to guarantee their success.


Even proficient English speakers may have trouble taking the TOEFL. We make sure your English skills are paired with test-taking know-how to maximize your score.


Navigating applications to the many prestigious private schools in the Pacific Northwest can be tricky. With over 25 years of local experience, we know what it takes to maximize a student's score to show their full potential.


We will tailor a study plan to fit your student’s needs, maximize their scores, and help them learn and grow.

  • Plan

    We begin with an initial consultation to discuss goals and a placement test. We will then match you with a tutor and create a custom study plan.

  • Learn

    Good scores come from real learning. Our tutors help each student to know not only what the right answer is, but what makes the right answer right.

  • Practice

    Tutors assign regular practice to build familiarity, target areas of weakness, and practice using effective study tools.

  • Evaluate

    Assess progress by regularly taking timed mock tests and reviewing scores.


“The sessions at BLC, both individual and in groups, are extremely intensive and mind-strengthening. They used many different ways of teaching, in order to fit every person's style of learning, and didn't just teach information but skills.”

Jeffrey L.


“I highly appreciate the SAT online class my daughter took this summer, which greatly improved her English and Math. The most impressive part is that her score went up from 1170 to 1400+ on her mock tests.”

“My high schoolers have been attending BLC for more than 3 years now and are very happy with the results. The teachers are awesome and Mrs. Kim is always there for us. We love BLC! My daughter’s SSAT score was great after she studied with very experienced teachers. We highly recommend BLC for everybody. My son is very happy to be part of the BLC family. He loves his teachers and studying is fun for him. His GPA is much better and as a parent I am very thankful.”
