- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Our founders and SAT/ACT instructors always stay on top of changes to the SAT and ACT. We also stay up to date with the best practices of education and technology in general so that you get the best student experience.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
We were fed up with expensive SAT/ACT prep classes that cost a lot without delivering results. We figured out how to master the SAT and ACT, and we created PrepScholar to share our strategies with you. By being online, we save on a lot of overhead costs that other companies suffer from, which means we can lower our price and work with many more students. Education is an incredibly important problem in this country. We're getting started in education by working on a test that matters the most to student's college applications - the SAT/ACT exams.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure the prep program you decide to use has everything you need. Students don't have the time to compensate for any missing pieces of a study program. Your ideal prep program will have: -customization to your strengths and weaknesses -detailed study lessons to teach you content -thousands of realistic practice questions -detailed answer explanations so you can learn from your mistakes -motivational features to keep you studying -helpful customer support Each one of these is important to maximizing your score results. Even if you don't work with us in the end, you need to choose a program with all these aspects.
