Service One





Prep Process

  • Our tutors are top-notch, each with thousands of patient and entertaining hours of experience teaching students how to improve their scores and each regularly scoring perfect scores on both the SAT and ACT.
  • We teach an array of strategies, helping your student choose the strategies that work best.
  • Our curriculum covers:
    • Overview of the test,
    • Global PSAT/SAT or ACT strategies, and
    • Targeted content mastery.


  • We cover all the material over 8 two-hour sessions for SAT or ACT, 7 sessions for the PSAT.
  • While we generally meet once a week, we can extend or condense that timing according to your student's needs.
  • Students who want signficant content area tutoring can allow additional time for additional sessions and practice.  
  • Mastery of the SAT, ACT, or PSAT requires practice, like learning any new skill; your student will have 20-30 minutes of individualized and targeted practice every day.
  • Your student will take a minimum of three practice tests:
    • One before we begin, in order to focus our work together,
    • One about midway in a proctered environment ($125 value)
    • One about a week before the test date in a proctored environment ($125 value)


Susan Powers, founder, has developed our strategies and curriculum over 12+ years of tutoring.

  • We use only College Board or ACT materials for timed practice. For targeted skill-building, we use only hand-selected materials from top-rated and personally tested publishers.

  • Our curriculum and tutors take a toolbox approach, fitting the best strategies to the student.

  • Since different materials work better for different students, we match the books your students uses to his or her needs.

When should my student begin studying?

With flexible schedules, we can get most students prepared in a short time, if the student is willing to put in the preparation time.


Most students will benefit from a longer preparation time, meeting once per week for the eight weeks or so before their test date.
