"Hey Rob,

I just wanted to reach out to you and say THANK YOU for all of your help preparing me to do well on my standardized tests. Before I came to you I was struggling getting my test scores into the upper ranges, but after I completed your video series, got feedback on my essays, and took more tests I got scores in the 99% for both the SAT and ACT.

Ultimately, after the long and stressful college admissions process, I narrowed my two options for college down to Harvard and Yale, and I decided to commit to Yale University. Although I have always been strong in school and extracurriculars, I really feel like your assistance put me over the edge and played a role in my admission into some of the world’s best colleges. I have recommended you to many of my friends and teachers at school because I truly believe you are an amazing tutor with so much to offer.

Thanks again so much and I wish you the best of luck in your future!"

Here is a small selection of what you'll learn in these courses - check the individual course pages for more details.

SAT Courses

  • Key skills necessary for Reading mastery, including Paraphrasing, Identifying Trap Answers, Managing Time, Inference, and Attacking Hard Questions.

  • What to do when you get stuck between two choices that both seem right - only ONE is correct, and you'll learn how to identify the right answer and eliminate the wrong one.
  • How to solve the "two part" questions that require you to find specific lines of evidence in the text to support your answer to a previous question. These can be tricky!
  • The two major question types - Grammar and Rhetorical Skills - and how to answer them with ease.

  • How to use these concepts to solve the most common question patterns that appear over and over again quickly and painlessly.
  • The solutions to every single problem (over 1000!) from eight real SAT Practice tests, completed on video in real time.
  • and so much more!

"Rob is an amazing tutor. I would not have been able to get a 31 on the ACT without his help and guidance. His methods and tips on how to approach each section sets him apart from other tutors. If a particular topic is troublesome for you, he will explain it until you understand it perfectly. In addition to his tutoring , the videos on his website are extremely helpful and full of information. Rob is always willing to help and easily accessible to answer questions when ever he is needed. Whenever someone asks I always recommend Rob as an ACT tutor."
