Erase the Fear Out of Test Taking 


Empowering through Preparation

Though the words SAT prep and ACT exam often strike fear and loathing into the hearts of students and parents everywhere, this process does not need to be painful.  Learning how to ace the SAT and other standardized tests can actually build confidence, bolstering students’ self-esteem for the challenges ahead.



From a satisfied test prep client

Though Dr. P. had been recommended to me last fall, another (less expensive) tutor worked with my son on ACT prep this spring instead.  Unfortunately, my son’s scores and skills stagnated during that time.  So, I reached out to Dr. P. this summer in the hopes that she could do something to help raise my son’s ACT scores.  Because she charges a bit more than our previous tutor, we began with just a 10-hour package.  We wound up buying two more.  Not only did Dr. P. teach my son the basics of algebra and geometry that enabled him to raise his ACT score by 5 points, with improvement in every section. She gave him the confidence that he needed to believe that he could do it.  Medical issues, changing schools, and ADD had diminished my son’s academic self-esteem, but through patient encouragement and nurturing structure, Dr. P. showed him that he had the skills and intelligence to perform well.  I’m so thankful we found her — and sorry we didn’t use her sooner.  I recommend Dr. P. and Crimson Coaching to any family whose child needs to take a test, improve skills, and learn content. — L.D., Lower Westchester County
