Really Important Stuff
My name is Susan Powers. I am currently the mom of an 22-year-old college graduate and an 18-year-old freshman in college. I understand first hand the desire for your future college student to have all possible opportunities open to him or her.
I have taught Kaplan SAT and GMAT courses just for fun. I enjoy seeing students' minds and eyes light up and watching their confidence building week after week. I founded Woodlands Test Prep because tutoring one-on-one or in small groups is even more rewarding -- students can make so much more progress when attention is devoted to their specific needs.
