The MTEL Prep Course provides an overview of the test, an intensive review of the skills assessed by the test, the opportunity to take sample tests, and strategies for test-taking. It will be held on Saturdays from June 9th through June 30th from 9:30 a.m. until noon. The cost is $199, which includes all materials.
