When I was preparing for college, I went to a group course offered at my high school. They told me that if I was a good student, I should guess on all the questions I didn’t know. That was incredibly damaging, negligent advice because there was a scoring penalty for my incorrect answer choices. I was an A student— in honors and AP classes— but I was NOT not a great test-taker. My scores reflected the poor instruction, and I was devastated when a classmate said to me, “I thought you were smart.” I’ve never forgotten that comment.
I’ve worked with students for over 25 years preparing them for the SAT-ACT. Many of my students have already tried the local prep resources offered at their high school. Some have gone to nationally known courses or even other private tutors. Their complaint is generally the same; they disliked the course, and it didn’t afford them the “guaranteed” results.
There are many options and questions when it comes to SAT and ACT prep. That’s why I offer a complimentary consultation for parents and students. I want my clients to be confident that my program can make the difference. I’ve developed a course that focuses on tips and strategies that transfer to any test that students will encounter. The prep is comprehensive and intensive, consistently developing students into better readers, writers, and mathematicians. I teach students to think logically, under time constraints, for optimal results. My students have renewed confidence and a very specific plan of attack. They will know exactly how to take the test and work towards getting the score they desire.
Years ago, my parents thought they were doing the right thing for me, but they didn’t get the bargain they’d hoped for. I’m dedicated to providing instruction that is unparalleled and worthwhile. It takes an investment of time, and my commitment is to expertly guide students as they prepare for a very challenging test. I’ve found that individualized instruction is the key to success: now, you can too!
