Really Important Stuff
My name is Susan Powers. I am currently the mom of an 23-year-old college graduate and an 19-year-old sophomore in college. I understand first hand the desire for your future college student to have all possible opportunities open to him or her.
I began my career in test prep over 25 years ago when I started teaching Kaplan SAT and GMAT courses for fun. I enjoy seeing students' minds and eyes light up and watching their confidence building week after week. I founded Woodlands Test Prep ten years ago because tutoring one-on-one or in small group classes is even more rewarding -- students make so much more progress when attention is devoted to their specific needs.
