One-on-One SAT/ACT

Test Prep

Customized Lessons 

Not all students thrive, and not all schedules align, with a group class setting. That's okay. We offer One-on-One SAT/ACT Prep Sessions to fit your schedule, at your location. Life is complicated; SAT prep shouldn't be. Take advantage of our flexible One-on-One Lessons. Get in touch today, and let us help you excel.

College Admission Consulting

Personalized Attention

Applying to college is complicated. We can help. Our TRACKiT! Admissions & College Planning Curriculum guides students from self-assessment and standardized tests straight through to acceptances and enrollment decisions. School search, applications, essays, scholarships, NCAA athletes - relax, we cover it all.

Our daughter was skeptical about doing online SAT Prep lessons...but Acumen provided her with individual analysis of her testing strengths and weaknesses. They really dedicated themselves to helping our student be successful. Not only did she enjoy the class and the Acumen instructor - her SAT score improved by 260 points.

Thank you Acumen!

I just wanted to thank you for your amazing work with our son. He scored significantly higher than his PSAT. Your class gave him the skills, confidence, and taught him how to be strategic with his time. Money well spent!!!
Thank you, thank you!

My Story


Personalized. Friendly. Flexible.

I recognize the potential and work to unlock the ability in each student, and, with a customized approach, our clients’ test scores and confidence consistently rise. Students' results prove this system works.


Before striking out on my own, I spent over a decade as a director and award-winning teacher for an international test prep company. More importantly, as a parent to two teens I know just how stressful the college prep phase can be.

Let me help.

I’m a patient, adaptable, successful Teacher.

Our team is ready to help your student reach his or her goals! 

Making Every Class Count

We know how difficult it can be to find a reliable teacher to focus on Test Prep. Teachers must motivate and guide students to success. As experienced SAT and ACT Tutors, we identify students’ problem areas and work with them in positive, constructive ways to achieve success. We offer small classes, proven strategies, and the personalized attention you deserve to reach your full academic potential. 

Doug, I can't thank you enough!

I can't remember a time when (our son) was so excited about learning. He said he learned more from you in an hour and a half than he did his whole school year in math!


Many, many thanks!!
