About Us


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!

Ruth Zumwalt (1971 - 2019) was the epitome of an educator. She spent 20 years in the classroom, with her focus primarily on teaching high school biology. She spent her last two years as Edmond Public School's Science Content Specialist. Anyone who ever met Ruth knew that she was first and foremost an educator and an avid champion of women in education.
