It is important to know early on which examination, either the SAT or the ACT, is best suited for any given student. The diagnostic SAT and ACT examinations I provide attempt to determine the examination which would most fully demonstrate to college admissions committees the academic aptitude any given student would exhibit in a university context.

It has truly been a privilege tutoring your son for the ACT. He is a brilliant student with an even more brilliant work ethic! Your son is my best performing ACT student to date, with reference to official ACT standardized test scores attained. I believe he will make a remarkable entrepreneur and formidable businessman.
