About Us

Practice is an important element for all activities, including preparing for the SAT and ACT. Our classes include daily hands-on practice-&-review, allowing students to see same-day test results. Score increases over 200 points have resulted from this innovative hands-on approach, with student confidence building from Day 1!

After over 35 years of helping students “take the next step to college,” it’s comments from high school college & career counselors that really make me as excited today as I was back in 1985:

“Your classes get immediate results.”

“I’ve seen improvements I didn’t think were possible.”

“Your strategies work on all tests, not just the SAT.”

“How do you keep up your high-energy level?!”

…and from students:

“I can’t believe how quickly the time passed!”

“I never learned anything like this before.”

“The test seems so much easier now.”

“Why can’t you be our teacher?!” (my response: …because if I taught this for more than a week, the class would become boringly repetitious! The program-length is perfect for maximum results!)

…and the ultimate inspiring comments:

“I got my scores back, and they’re even better than what I got in the class!”

“My SAT scores met the NCAA requirement and now I’m eligible to play college football!”

How can a coach not be inspired to want to keep helping kids succeed when there’s so much at stake!
