  • "Thank you so much, Pinnacle Prep. My daughter started from a 520 in math and 620 in reading/writing on her PSAT and after working with you, achieved perfect 36 ACT scores in math and reading! Her composite went up 9 points overall! My son also did really well. Thank you for all your help over the years with both our kids."

    — Lindsay, parent

  • "When I saw the SAT for the first time, I didn’t think I’d be able to even finish a section, let alone do well. But I soon became an expert test-taker — I went up 140 on the Math and 170 on the Verbal. I honestly do not think I could have mastered the SAT had it not been for Pinnacle Prep. They are real professionals who take their jobs seriously and make sure every student succeeds. Without them, I wouldn’t even apply to the schools I am considering. Pinnacle Prep is frankly outstanding."

    — Aaron, Yeshivah of Flatbush, University of Pennsylvania

  • "I went from up 170 on the Math and 170 on the Verbal after working with Pinnacle Prep! I love my tutor, and I actually looked forward to when she came because she was fun to be around while studying. She had a really good way of explaining things so that the solution was memorable."

    — Claire, Blair Academy

  • "Without Pinnacle Prep’s help and support, it’s possible I would not be at Williams College today. I was ecstatic to go up hundreds of points from my PSAT and achieve an 800 on the Verbal and 790 on the Math! Before working with Pinnacle Prep, the SAT intimidated me. However, my tutor was able to focus our time on specific areas and help eliminate my weaknesses. When it was time for the actual test, I was confident I could handle anything it had in store for me."

    — Will, Greenwich High School, Williams College

  • "I was very, very pleased with our tutor and would recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone looking for personalized instruction. He tailored the course to fit my daughter’s needs, strengths, weaknesses and schedule. He kept us apprised of her progress and development, with lots of follow-ups. He worked out a very effective and manageable SAT/ACT schedule for my daughter and helped her achieve a 35 on the ACT. "

    — Caroline, Parent

  • "We would recommend Pinnacle Prep without reservation. Our son benefited greatly from his work with his tutor, both academically and personally, and his score went up 360 points!"
