People want to succeed. There is just something in us that drives us to do better, be better, live better. That's why standardized tests exist in the first place. Someone decided that filling in ovals on multiple-choice exams could boost us toward this common human goal. Whether you agree with this philosophy or not, you'll still end up taking the test. That's where I come in. My goal is to help you find your own personal success, whether that comes from learning how to focus while studying, earning scholarships from your SAT score, or making it into the top medical school in the country. Hopefully, I'll succeed in my venture, too.
