Costa Mesa SAT Prep


Get a FREEConsultation!

Our SAT Prep program in Costa Mesa is hands down the most unique, comprehensive and personalized in Southern California and possibly in the country. One of the biggest reasons why our program is so different has to do with how and why The SAT Prep Program was written in the first place. What most parents don’t realize is that every large SAT Prep company hires writers to put their programs together. Are these writers even tutors? Are they qualified? Are they in touch with the students' needs? Not necessarily! Believe it or not many SAT Prep programs in Costa Mesa that are put together by the larger companies are not written from the perspective of an average student, they are just made to look attractive and cover details in the SAT test. Unfortunately that will not get the job done.

This is why Tier One Tutors was created, and is also why we've been so successful thus far. The SAT Prep program was put together over the period of a full year AFTER official practice tests for the new SAT were disseminated to the public. Unlike every other company in Costa Mesa who wrote programs before they even knew what exactly was going to be on the new test, we pushed the money aside and took the path of idealism.  This has finally paid off in our unbelievable and unique approach to the SAT!

The writers of the SAT Preparation program are the two young, ambitious and dynamic owners of Tier One Tutors, Brian Mupo and Steven Dorfman. The two of them spent countless hours over the course of a full year writing and developing their new program. The reason they felt so confident that they could create something unique and different is because they went through the struggle on the SAT themselves before they mastered it. Both went through SAT preparation courses and spent a myriad of hours preparing on their own while in high school. After a long hard struggle both achieved their ideal scores. Upon entering college, they independently recognized that helping others to accomplish what they did was of the utmost importance.  Hence, Tier One Tutors was born serving all of Southern California, including Costa Mesa.

Costa Mesa: A Cultural Center with Spanish Roots

A city of around 109,960 residents, Costa Mesa is a great coastal town in the south of California. Here, we will explore the background of this town, which was established in 1920, and incorporated in 1953. We will discuss its roots in Spanish explorers, transformation from Harper to Costa Mesa, what it looks like today, as well as why Costa Mesa well earns the right to use the city motto, “City of the Arts!” Hopefully this article will give you some insight into why Costa Mesa is such a great place. 


Costa Mesa was first visited by Spanish Catholics in the 1760s. Soon after their visit there, a mission was established in the town named San Juan Capistrano. The land where this town was established was granted to a man by the name of Jose Antonia Yorba by the Spanish Empire in 1801. The railroads would bring settlers to the area around 70 years later. This town, known as Fairfield, was flooded and abandoned around a decade later.  Harper later sprang up in the same area. Known as a farming community, it was not until around 1920 that the residents changed the name of their town to Costa Mesa, meaning coast table in Spanish. 

Costa Mesa Today

Since the 1950s, Costa Mesa has grown into a small town with light manufacturing, tourism, and retail. The majority of residents living there are Caucasian. Mostly, you will find single-family households in the area, with around 3.3 people per household. Most residents are aged 18 to 24 years old. The average resident is about 37 years old. The majority of residents here rent, as opposed to buying houses. There are also slightly more males living in the area than there are females. 

Culture and More

Costa Mesa is home to the Pacific Amphitheater, the Segerstrom Center for the Arts, as well as the South Coast Repertory Theatre. Each year, these places host well-known musicians, comedians, and performers. They host plays, as well. The fair in Costa Mesa is the one of the largest of its kind in all of California, and occurs every July. There are plenty of parks, libraries, various businesses, newspapers, and schools in the community. A municipal golf course is also located there. One of the largest shopping centers of its kind in the nation, South Coast Plaza, calls Costa Mesa its home.
