For students with a history of struggling on standardized tests...

It's time to try a different approach.

There are few worse feelings for a student than feeling like they've tried everything, and none of it has worked.

And for students with a history of struggling on standardized tests, that frustration can get compounded with the pressures of junior and senior year. What happens when, after several months of practice, tutoring sessions, courses at school, and a few attempts at an SAT or ACT, that final score still isn't where everyone hoped it would be?

Most test prep options won't help.

  • If a student has repeatedly done poorly on standardized tests in the past, then the traditional SAT/ACT class or tutor will not help—not because they don't know what they're doing, but simply because their processes are not specifically designed to help students who aren't confident test takers make meaningful improvements.
  • We have found that, when students learn to approach a learning challenge as a game, they can break through to new levels—even if they’ve never done so before.

"I want to thank you for working with Matt. Not only did you help him increase his test scores, you also helped boost his confidence in himself. I found that there was improvement in his overall grades after working with you. He had the confidence to continue to challenge himself in his senior year with AP and college credit courses."

"When I first started working with MuchSmarter, I believed that I was hopeless when it came to standardized tests... I got a score that I never thought was possible for myself."
