Class of 2020
Over the years, I’ve had excellent results helping students increase SAT/ACT scores with short turnaround times. I quickly diagnose problems, and focus on solutions. A student last year came to me disappointed with her test results after working for months with another tutor. With two weeks of 1:1 work that I designed based on her score report, she increased her ACT score 7 points, surpassing what the track coach required for a place and scholarship at her preferred college.
With only ten days to prep before the November SAT, another class of 2020 student crossed the threshold she needed that helped her gain admission to Notre Dame; another student achieved his goal of a perfect score.
A future engineer discussed her credentials and desire to be a robotics engineer. She was not reaching high enough in her college selection. I suggested Cornell University as a fit, where she gained admittance and an 85% scholarship package.
A Westfield High School student wanted to complete her entire Common Application before summer ended, so she could maintain her excellent GPA and apply ED to the honors nursing program at TCNJ. She earned numerous excellent early admissions options and merit scholarships, including Binghamton University Decker School of Nursing, Seton Hall Honors Program, Pace University Honors Program, and Drexel’s Honors Program, but when the letter from TCNJ came in, she was all set.
A New Jersey student wanted to stay local
deeply committed to his parents, who depend on him for many household tasks. NSCA helped him realize options he was unaware of. He stepped up his admissions game … and stayed local.
Result: His guidance counselor updated me, saying “Michael is doing great as a junior at Princeton University. Thank you for helping him realize his potential.”
