Located in the heart of Cocoa Village, come see what keeps us a step ahead of the bigger companies.

At Ingram Test Prep, we take standardized testing seriously.  We are full-time, professional tutors. After earning 99th percentile scores on the SAT and ACT and attending NYU and UPenn, we now help our students achieve outstanding results by teaching content and strategies, as well as motivating students and inspiring confidence.  Throughout the past 12 years working in test prep, Maxwell (“Mel”) Ingram and Henry Beavers have continuously analyzed the latest trends in the tests and continuously refine their tutoring methods.

That maximizes your score improvement and efficiency in the test preparation process.

If you’re ready to earn a great score on the SAT, ACT, GRE, LSAT, or in your advanced math and science coursework, you’ve come to the right place. We offer one-on-one tutoring, small group SAT/ACT classes, as well as mock SAT/ACT practice tests, all at the office in Cocoa Village.

Request an in-person or virtual 30-minute consult, email us at mel@ingramtestprep.com, call 321.300.2040, or fill out the contact form at the bottom of this page. At the moment, we have limited time for returning calls due to extremely high interest, but please reach out anyway – we love getting to know you!

Note: The next official SAT dates is March 12, 2022; the next official ACT dates are October 23, December 11, and February 12. All universities, as well as Bright Futures, accept either test without preference.
Note: Class of 2023 students are encouraged to start SAT/ACT preparation now! Junior year (or any time after the completion of Algebra II!) is the ideal time to invest in test preparation, if the goal is several hundred points improvement before application season kicks off in the fall of the senior year.
Note: Class of 2022 students have until August 1, 2022, to submit test scores for the Bright Futures scholarship. The required SAT scores are 1210 and 1330 -OR- ACT scores 25 and 29, for 75% and 100% tuition coverage, respectively, at any Florida public university.

Happy Families

Mel Ingram is wonderful! My son took a 6 week ACT prep course with Mel. He bettered is original score of 27 with a 31, which qualified him for the Bright Futures’ Florida Academic Scholars (FAS) covering 100% of his in-state college tuition. Money well spent.

When my daughter was struggling with her college entrance exams, I once again turned to Mel. With Mel’s help, my daughter also raised her score multiple points. Just recently, Mel helped her study for a college Algebra final. She nailed it with a 90% after receiving average scores most of the semester.

But, more important than the test scores was the confidence Mel instilled in my daughter. She left every tutoring session feeling smarter, believing that she could and would do well. For that, I will forever be grateful. Mel has the amazing ability to break down concepts and reach students on their level. I cannot recommend Mel Ingram enough.

Ginger A., an MIHS parent

The proof is in the pudding. As a direct result of the ACT score my daughter was able to achieve after Mel tutored her, she was offered USF’s and UCF’s top merit scholarships – $20K and $30K respectively. That’s an awesome return on investment! And more offers are likely once other schools decide on admissions. Mel is a great tutor and a great person for a teenager to look up to. Highly recommend.

Set up a free consultation

Working one-on-one with a tutor is all about customization. We strive to meet each student’s needs, and we like to know as much as possible about the student’s academic background, the family’s needs, and the goals for the program of study.

A 30-minute in-office or virtual consultation is how we’ll get started! At least one parent(s) or other interested party should attend. (Sometimes a grandparent, a relative, or a family friend arranges the student’s classes; these parties’ input is welcome.) The student should also attend. We’ll talk about test prep, college admissions, scheduling and the test prep timeline, as well as the student’s academic background. For Fall 2021, consults are generally available Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, 9-9:30pm, and on Fridays, 6:15-6:45pm.

Small Group Classes

Engaging, dynamic small group instruction.

Fall 2021 group classes are now underway! You can enroll at any time; classes are designed so that new students can start at any point. There are three different class levels available this semester. Each group class meets weekly and is limited to five students.

For Starting SAT scores 820-1050: Tuesdays, 7:30-9pm, $50
For Starting SAT scores 1050-1170: Thursdays, 6-8pm, $60
For Starting SAT scores 1170+: Wednesdays, 7-9pm, $60


Each two-hour session is $60, paid by credit/debit card only, at the time of the session or through the pay link in the confirmation email.

What’s included, and what are classes like?

All group classes are led by Mel. With a maximum of 5 students, your learner absolutely gets individualized attention in every class. All course materials are included – there’s no need to purchase additional supplies or books.  We use only official, previously released exams in our prep. In each class, we work through chunks of material in the SAT and the ACT, across all sections of the test – Reading, Writing and Language (English), Math, and Science – that have been carefully selected for each group’s score level. Students work through practice problems at their own pace while Mel helps every student in turn. For questions that stump everybody, we come together for mini-lessons. Students enjoy the active learning, which is one of the best ways to learn (and retain) new material.

When can I start?

We’ve designed the group classes to be self-contained units so that no student will come in feeling “behind” the other students, so you can start anytime.
