I paid $400 for three days a week, for 4 weeks leading up to SAT to improve VERBAL ONLY on my childs SAT. Feedback a week before was how hard they were working and how great it was going. The score ended up WORSE on third attempt with help than on first two attempts solo. Thanks for nothing. Based on verbal report, paid $185 more to help with AP class, schedule problems were not worked with, teacher did one session and watched homework being worked on then helped with wrong answers. Never again!! three sessions paid for never received because they wouldn't work with schedule. Office staff was very friendly and made me feel at ease. I've since received a $10 late fee because the $185 was paid late, even though they didn't give him 3 of the lessons, owner won't answer my call to remove late fee.

The SAT is an assessment of essentially a student's academic abilities learned during his or her previous 11 years of education. In order to make significant improvement in college admissions test scores,like the SAT or ACT, it is recommended that students attend a minimum of 2-3 months in preparation, totaling between 16 and 24 hours of instruction. Some students need 3 or more months if their academic foundation is weak and below their grade level in school. Since I do not know who submitted this review nor the student taught, I am unable to reference his or her initial test scores prior to preparation to determine the results of the one month of sessions attended. I also am not able to review your account nor session instruction to provide you with feedback. As the founder and owner of Total Learning Concepts, I can assure you we have worked with literally thousands of students since 1986 and have an impeccable record of success with them.
