Our Unique Approach
Named Best SAT and ACT Test Prep by CBS Los Angeles
“Powerful Prep was a great find for our son. His tutor, Elise, provided incredibly personalized and detailed instruction. In just ten sessions, our son improved his ACT five points — from a 27 to a 32. It’s clear to me that Elise and Powerful Prep gave him the materials and tools he needed to succeed. I would highly recommend this company!”
“My tutor is extremely knowledgeable and supportive, and he really targeted the areas I needed specific help in. I started out with a 1940 SAT score, and after just 4 sessions with Powerful Prep, my score went up to 2100. I would definitely recommend this service to anyone looking to improve his or her SAT/ACT score.”
