Bio

Looking for massive score gains on the SAT or ACT? Look no further: I'll teach you all you need to know. My name is Valen, and I scored perfect scores on the SAT and ACT, which were my ticket to Yale University.

Looking for massive score gains on the SAT or ACT? Look no further: I'll teach you all you need to know. My name is Valen, and I scored perfect scores on the SAT and ACT, which were my ticket to Yale University. After graduating from Yale, I taught test prep classes at various top-tier schools such as Princeton Review and Compass Education. After a couple of years learning and teaching the techniques offered at these schools, I went solo. I drew the best strategies and methods from all these schools and built my own training program. Since then, I have coached hundreds of students across the country to achieve stellar results on the SAT and ACT. Through my comprehensive training, students will master the material, hone their test-taking techniques, and even devise their own timing strategy for all portions of the test. Whether it's for the SAT or the ACT, my test-prep program truly the total package—the only prep you will ever need.

What’s more, once I assess the student’s strengths and weaknesses in the first lesson, I then tailor my curriculum to his or her individual needs. This personalized approach is what gives my program the edge over the competition: it allows us to make the greatest amount of progress in the shortest possible time. And with a program that is this comprehensive, this personalized, and this efficient, the results speak for themselves:

On average, my students increase their SAT scores by 200-250 points. They increase their ACT scores by 5-7 points. Students who work harder get even better results.

My program generally takes about 30-40 hours to complete. More advanced students can complete it within as little as 20 hours (i.e. 10 2-hour lessons).

Since big-name schools such as The Princeton Review have tons of overhead expenses and rely on brand recognition, they charge as much as $280 per hour for their highest-quality tutoring—quite the strain on one’s wallet! But I don’t have all those administrative costs. The result is that my rates are 60%-75% lower than theirs, but you are gett
