American born Chinese, Jennifer was a great athlete at Palo Alto High School with a good GPA. However, she had to have an SAT score above 2100 for her college application. She tried multiple learning centers in the Bay Area, but no success.
ivyGoal was able to quickly identify her weakness in reading comprehension and designed a custom SAT prep program for her.
"My daughter is an athlete, but she still needed a 2,100 SAT score to go to her dream colleges. We tried multiple SAT prep services and my daughter improved from 1,700 to 1,950, then was stuck between 1,900-2,000 scores. Nick was able to pin-point my daughter's weakness and recommended a tutoring approach targeting certain areas. Finally, she scored just above 2,100 and was accepted by 13 out of 15 applied Ivy League schools and UC Berkeley and UCLA. It is very important to our family that my daughter's college dream became true. I want to thank Nick for his knowledge and service. "
