Regents Prep Overview
Helpful information about classes, Regents Exams, FAQ & Exam HElpful Tips
How do we run our classes?
At Evolve Exam Prep and Tutoring we keep our classes small to give each of our students the individual attention they require to review topics that need to be broken down further and to answer all questions. Smaller classes are statistically proven to positively affect learning.
Class Size: 10-15 students (max 18)
Time: 9am - 4pm EST (multiple short breaks and a 45-minute lunch break)
Location: The Murphy Center - across the street from Iona College Main Campus (taught in comfortable air-conditioned classrooms)
Students will receive a review book created by Evolve Exam Prep and Tutoring containing worksheets, Regents questions, and thorough content review.
All our instructors are state certified teachers with multiple years of experience and exam prep experience as well. We take the time to interview our teachers and prep them to be fully able to cover complex subjects, answer questions, and have a strong classroom presence that helps our students feel comfortable and confident.
Evolve Exam Prep and Tutoring teachers will review the content topics encompassing a full-year’s curriculum through mini-lesson. Each mini-lesson is followed by Regents practice problems, and the teacher will review the problems and answer questions after each topic session. Our teachers will answer student questions during class time, and break-time can be used for additional questions. Teachers will also cover strategies and best practices for the specific Regents exam that the students are taking.
For our students to have the best experience possible – please notify us in advance if a student has any special needs that may need unique accommodations in the classroom. Our goal is always to bring the best and most informative experience for all our students, so we will always abide by them and do what we can to accommodate every student.
[*If your child cannot perform well in a class of 18 or requires further individual attention in certain subjects, Evolve Exam Prep and Tutoring offers private tutoring and small group sessions for 2-7 students, we're happy to suite the needs of all different learning styles and methods]

What are the Regents Exam requirements?
Students are must achieve a score of 65 (55 for Special Education students) or higher on Regents Exams to pass. However this only qualifies for a local diploma as long as they compensate with a score of 65 or higher on another Regents exam.
Students with disabilities still must earn minimum 55 scores on Regents exams in Comprehensive English and math. NYSED considers a score of 75 to 80 to indicate college readiness, with a score of 75 to 85 being a cutoff for admission for some selective colleges and universities and a score below 75 being a threshold for placement in remediation for some schools, including CUNY schools.
What are the Regents Diploma exam requirements?
In 2014, the Board of Regents created the 4+1 option, where students must pass at least 4 regents exams one per subject and pass 1 additional Regents exam in any subject.
