Different from head to toe. 


From New York City to Kuwait City and Venezuela to China, we're the test prep and academic coaching choice of the most discerning families around the world.


Our reported score improvements reflect growth over a single year, not from sophomore scores.

Our students usually achieve test score improvement results in excess of 4 to 6 times the national average.


SAT, ACT, and GRE Preparation

When push comes to shove, most colleges and universities require test scores-- and good ones, at that. Let us put to work for you the proprietary expertise Elizabeth published in her books Outsmarting the SAT and Acing the ACT. Students around the world rave about our tough love and creative approaches that reinvent what it means to prep, and their scores show it. We successfully prepare students for tests they have to take with skills they'll use to be more successful in high school and college, since a successful college experience is the whole point, anyway.


Academic Coaching

While time is out of your control, you can control what you do with it. I can help with everything from managing your calendar to developing new tactics for studying and retaining information. Learn to enjoy school or get even more on top of your game. Our test prep method teaches students new note taking skills; academic coaching enhances the process. 

My roster always includes students with ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, post-concussive syndrome, or other learning and processing differences. Show me your IEP!

The Writer's Academy

We may spend more time communicating with each other using the written word than ever before, but that doesn't mean we're becoming a culture of strong writers.

Whether you're learning to write a five paragraph essay, developing academic applications, or even developing a lengthy work of fiction, Elizabeth is a professional, three-times published author who can help.
