The SAT is a college entrance exam accepted by every college across the country. It's made up of three primary sub-sections: Writing, Math, and Critical Reading. The SAT is used by colleges as a tool to predict student success at the collegiate level.
High school counselors are busy and frequently don't have time to focus 1-on-1 with every student. Our counselors never work with more than 8 families in a given school year and will help your student through every step of the application process. Simply put, we have time for you!
Whether you're planning on heading to Med School (MCAT), preparing to head into the court room (LSAT), live life at the edge of the board room (GMAT), or looking to expand your horizons in the arts and sciences (GRE), Get Smarter Prep can assist you in achieving your goals.
I just thought you'd like to know that I absolutely crushed the SAT!! My total score was a 2270! Up from the 2050 I had scored before. My reading and writing sections went up quite a bit, but my biggest gain was in math, from 600 to 730! Thanks so much for all the help you gave me. It was a lot of fun working with you, and just the few sessions we had paid off big time!

Our experience with the entire Get Smarter Prep staff was extremely positive and beneficial. After taking the ACT prep class, my daughter was able to significantly raise her scores in the sections that she felt were not her strengths. We felt like this opened her up to some opportunities that might not have otherwise been possible. She also felt more confident and calm when taking the test, which really enabled her to do her best. We will definitely use Get Smarter Prep with our son!

We are definitely pleased with the ACT test preparation that you provided for our daughter... Not only did she learn some very effective testing techniques and strategies, she was very enthusiastic about the weekly classes and was motivated (by you as well as herself) to do the homework. The significant increase (7 points) in her score was beyond our expectations! We are optimistic not only about acceptance to colleges, but also about tapping into the pool of merit based scholarships.
Thank you so very much for your assistance with Katherine and your patience with our rescheduling!! We are so pleased with the results of your tutoring! It has given her a huge boost of confidence as she prepares her college apps. Thank you for working with her!
Thanks! Following your ACT prep class my son Taylor scored a 30 ... up from the 23 on the first practice exam you gave him ... thank you for your practical preparation, for your extraordinary efforts to work with his schedule, for the increased confidence and opportunities his performance has given him.
Thanks again and again.
I received my SAT results in late October and was pleased with them. I had a 2160 composite, 800 CR, 650 math, and 710 writing. My PSAT, however, was much more impressive. I earned a 230 composite which consisted of an 80 on reading, 74 on math, and 76 on writing. This absolutely guarantees that I will be at least a national merit semifinalist. Thank you so much for the tutoring. It definitely paid off!

I just wanted to let you know that I got a 28 on my ACT!!! That's 5 points better than the first time I took it! I was so excited and just wanted you to know :) And I wanted to say thanks for all the time you put in because it helped a lot! I appreciate you!

Get Smarter Prep helped me prepare for the ACT and SAT without repetition of areas I already was proficient in. They helped me pinpoint my weaknesses and attack them head on until they became, in some instances, my strengths. They designed a plan that made the most efficient use of my time... I improved my overall scores more than I ever thought was possible. My tutor truly was insightful in tailoring my tutorial sessions to fit exactly what I needed.
As competitive as today's college admissions are, I know that I would not have been able to get into my college of choice without having the test scores I did, and Get Smarter Prep raised my scores in every category: Reading, Math, and Writing. Thanks so much!
