Academic Coach Elizabeth Petersen
I have developed successful programs for helping students succeed on the SAT, the PSAT and the ACT. Whether you are taking a test for the first time or retaking one to improve your scores, I know what you need to know, and I can help you learn it.
Students have earned perfect (800) and nearly perfect (780) SAT scores and ACT (36) scores after sessions with me, and they have been admitted to many competitive colleges. Students have also qualified for National Merit Scholarships after working with me.
In addition to their use for admissions, higher test scores are used by colleges for awarding financial packages, and students can save thousands of dollars by improving their scores.
With my background as a writing teacher and writer, I also help students with college and application essays that make a difference.
Check out the testimonial page to see what students and their parents have to say about their results.
I have over 30 years experience teaching writing and English in secondary schools and colleges and over ten years teaching SAT and ACT prep in small groups and privately.
