Test Geek: Our Story

Test Geek was founded on the idea that quality test prep is all about quality tutors. There is no prep company with higher tutor standards, and we are passionate about recruiting and training the best test prep tutors on the planet.

Since its inception, Test Geek has grown quickly. Today, we offer test prep at the highest level and employ over seventy of the best SAT and ACT tutors in the business. Our core mission has stayed the same, but the tools we offer our students have expanded significantly. Test Geek now publishes its own set of SAT and ACT prep books, Solved, and has created one of the highest-quality test prep video series available. We are investing heavily in digital learning environments, and we also partner with schools across the country to provide organizational prep programs.

These new tools are great, but our core value hasn't changed: It's all about tutor quality. Let's take a look at the team.

He received his Bachelor's in Economics there, and continued to receive a certificate in Full Stack Web Development from the University of Texas Austin. He has tutored intermittently, primarily teaching test prep.

He also believes it is his duty to equip students with tools to become better learners themselves. This entails welcoming unique and creative approaches to solving problems, encouraging students to connect the relationships between different topics and subjects. He recommends using external sources and materials to learn and supplement understanding. He is very excited to have the opportunity to work with you!
