What We Do
Our job is to increase your student’s scores on the SAT and ACT tests, plain and simple.
We use a variety of effective test prep methods and we keep students on their toes. In one tutoring session, we might review twenty SAT vocabulary words, isolate and practice three common types of SAT and ACT math problems that your student finds difficult, discuss and improve a practice essay, and study SAT and ACT Reading strategies.
Our instructional methods emphasize strategy, practice, pacing, confidence, humor, and a personal relationship with each of our students.
Because we hate being bored (with a passion!), we keep this dry SAT and ACT prep material from becoming boring to our students. “Wow, that last hour just flew by!” is one of our favorite compliments to get from students!
Most importantly, we’ll get results.
