      “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!”
