  • Life skills, not just higher scores, gained from the SAT/ACT test prep. 
  • How tutoring prepares students for their life’s adventure.

  • The very real skills gained during the journey of test prep. 


Key Takeaways: 

  • Be more positive with your student, it will help to remove the frustration and help them cultivate a growth mindset. 
  • Everyone should be a teacher. If you are a parent, you are a teacher. If you are an adult out in the world, you are a teacher. 
  • It is not just about the score – it is also about the life skills your student is developing. 
  • Escapism is the killer of adventure in life. Lean into each challenge and approach it with a constructive mentality and you will create an amazing foundation for your life’s journey. 


Everybody’s story is unique. Everybody’s life is an adventure. Everything is serendipity. And that’s what we’re here to do is to prepare people for the adventure of life.” – Barak Moore
