Ransom Everglades-SSAT Student Success

Thank you for your company’s help on bringing up my score on the SSAT.  With my SSAT tutor’s help I brought my verbal score up from a 59 to a 95.  I got into all three schools I applied to.  That includes my first choice of schools, Ransom Everglades School. Thank you again.

What a great experience! Our son’s tutor, Michelle, was excellent. While she covered all the material in depth, the approach was highly customized based on areas that needed extra attention. She was able to take what seemed like mundane tasks and made them manageable and easy to complete, ensuring he was completely prepared by test day. Alexis was super organized and always updated us on progress. He even sent our son cookies on his birthday! Of course, results matter- and Prepped and Polished delivered. I’d recommend them without hesitation.

Our Prepped & Polished SSAT tutor met with my 6th grade son via Skype just a handful of times after an SSAT score that was lower than we expected. She helped him immensely with the verbal section, timing throughout the test, as well as mindfulness exercises to calm his nerves. We are delighted with the results — an excellent score!

We had an outstanding experience with Prepped & Polished, our tutor (Jon) was just terrific. He not only prepared our daughter exceptionally well for the ACT but he also helped to reduce her anxiety and set her expectations about the entire testing experience. They weren’t least expensive alternative, but well worth the investment, especially given that our daughter was just admitted to her first-choice school (Boston College). I will most definitely use Prepped & Polished again when my younger daughter is ready for the college admissions process.

Our 6th grade daughter struggles with executive function and organizational skills. Alexis and I engaged in a lengthy detailed discussion of my daughter’s strengths and challenges, and he reviewed data I provided with extreme care and understanding of what our goals were as a family. In short, I wanted to enable my daughter to be more in charge of her homework planning and execution, which required a strategy that spoke to time management skills.

Alexis found a terrific tutor match for us. Allison has been instrumental in teaching our daughter time management skills in a way that speaks to her, and has taught her habits that work for her. It has been a blessing to have P&P in our corner and we look forward to a long-standing relationship with Alexis and Allison.

If your child is struggling with organization and time management, now is the time to teach them to get a handle on it, and P&P is the source to help you get there.

Great SSAT test preparation services! Our son got a 99th percentile overall on the November test, and still wants to take the December one to see if he can get a perfect score. Thanks for the help!

Our son took his SAT one last time in Cct. and he got 750 math, 760 reading, 780 writing. Tremendous improvement!

Sarah is a student who joined Prepped & Polished to prepare for the SAT Dubai. This what she has to say: 
I got my scores yesterday and I got a 710 in reading!  I never expected I’d actually go up a hundred points.
Thank you for working with me, it really paid off.  I never would have put in so much work if you hadn’t been assigning it every week.
It was great working with you!

SAT Dubai Student Sarah H. (Dubai, UAE)

I completed my test yesterday and am extremely happy with my results. I got a 6 on the Integrated Reasoning, which was better than any of my practice test scores. My Quantitative was a 49 and my Verbal was a 34, for a total of 690, which tied my best practice score. The dry-erase sheets were actually easy to get used to. The pens dry very quickly (within a second or so), so I never had any problems smudging the text.
I saw one data sufficiency problem during the test that was especially hard and reminded me of a practice problem you pointed out as one of the hardest. It involved finding the remainder of a variable when it is divided by 5 and the clues didn’t involve any concrete numbers, just more variables.
Thank you for all of your help with the ACT test preparation. My dad and I are thrilled with how everything turned out.

Alex L. (Sherborn, MA)

I had my two boys work with Alexis for both the SSAT and SAT Preparation and their scores improved substantially. Our son just got a 34 on act. Great training from the master!
