For students who have struggled with math or reading for years...

If a weakness in a key skill or subject is dragging a student's scores down on the SAT or ACT, it's time to try a different approach.

Play MuchSmarter ACT

Trouble with reading or math can stop kids cold on the SAT/ACT.

Students that regularly struggle with a specific section of the high school curriculum are often having a hard time because they have yet to develop a skill that makes success in those subjects possible.

And that struggle often compounds when it comes time to talk about college applications and standardized tests. And a student who has struggled with reading or math since middle school is extremely unlikely to go into an SAT or ACT and somehow outperform their skill level.

Most test prep options won't help.

  • And it's not because they're bad at what they do: they're simply not designed to help a student who has been struggling with a core skill for years overcome that weakness.
  • These students need a new relationship with math or reading. They need a different approach.  
  • We've found that students can establish a new relationship with math or reading when they are taught to see each of them as a game of skill that they can master and enjoy.  

"I had been struggling with math ever since 6th grade. When I began to work with Much Smarter, math became much clearer to me. I not only improved my grade, but I learned new ways to approach a problem and gained the confidence I needed to do well. I'm so grateful to Much Smarter for not only improving my grades, but helping me understand and approach problems and difficulties with an open mind, and confidence that I can do anything."

"I've always been extremely hard on myself. No matter how well I did on a test or a project, I would never think it was good enough. In school I felt like if I did not grasp something right away, I would never be able to. I particularly struggled with this mentality during my preparation for standardized tests..."
