Welcome to ACUMEN Test Prep

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 Tutors, we identify students’ problem areas and work with them in positive, constructive ways to achieve success. Lessons are designed according to students’ needs, with an emphasis on confidence-boosting activities. We offer small classes, proven strategies, and the personalized attention you deserve to reach your full academic potential. 

My Story

Personalized. Friendly. Flexible.

I recognize the potential each student has, and with a customized approach, 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 SAT Tutor ready to help you reach your goals.

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!
