I missed the mark. While my scores were okay, I knew I was capable of better.
After graduating college a couple of years later, something weird happened. I started working as a test prep tutor. And I loved it. I immersed myself in the tests— I took every test that was available, learned all of the strategies, and filled in all of my conceptual gaps. I even started sitting for the official tests myself, and, to my surprise, I scored near-perfect on the SAT and the ACT.
How could it be? How was it that after I struggled so much with the test in high school I was now doing so well?
I realized that after working for several SAT tutoring companies big and small and helping hundreds of students, I now had the strategies, the concepts, and more importantly the confidence to score highly on the test. With the right concepts, strategies, and mindset, any student could score highly on these tests.
I started Critical Point Test Prep because I know what it’s like to struggle to increase my scores, and I’ve made it my mission ever since to give every student the skills they need to succeed on these tests.
