      “Such fantastic SAT test prep! I needed a test prep tutor that could cater to my weaknesses (math!)  and help hone my strengths and Powerful Prep did that and more. One-on-one with a great and knowledgeable tutor, flexible hours, and a strategy that made the test process less intimidating. I got a huge score boost and best of all, got into the college of my choice! I definitely recommend to anyone looking to boost their SAT/ACT score.”

      “We are extremely happy with the results our son has seen working with Matt and the Powerful Prep program. During the time Matt tutored our son he was able to increase his score by 500 points. A direct result of Matt’s ability to assess our son’s learning  needs and apply the Powerful Prep techniques to meet our son’s needs. This is a results driven program and Matt has the utmost professionalism. I highly recommend Powerful Prep!”

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.”
