About Us

Our Lead Instructors

We specialize in top-quality standardized test preparation. We created our company in 2014, as we saw a great need for additional avenues for students to build test-taking skills and gain familiarity with standardized tests. We wanted to bring the vast knowledge of our combined experience in the classroom and teaching an elective ACT Review course to a larger number of students. As a test-prep business, we host Crash Courses prior to each national ACT exam and PSAT exam. Our goals are to instill confidence, remove fear and doubt, and provide mastery of key concepts. We aim to help students TEST WITH CONFIDENCE!
