Our son raised his composite ACT score from 28 to 31 (with an 11 pt. increase in English!). This was the result only 3 sessions with ColPrep. We also used ColPrep to guide him in composing his college essay, as well as tutoring for one of his classes (Physics). We couldn’t be more pleased with the people and service.  BOTTOM LINE: ColPrep helped make our son a more attractive college/university candidate, opening opportunities for him that might not have been there otherwise.  We highly recommend ColPrep!

We cannot say enough good things about Col Prep! In six total tutoring sessions, our son improved his ACT composite score by 6 points, with an 11 point increase in English. From the very first meeting, our son connected with his tutor who gave him the skills and confidence to soar. He is now excited about applying to college and embracing his future. He looks forward to working with ColPrep on his essay writing this fall.

ColPrep Tutoring has been instrumental in giving my son the confidence and tools he needs for success. Between the one on one tutor for his high school classes and the ACT prep class which helped him get a score of 31, my family can’t recommend them highly enough!  Thanks so much!
David and Kristen Caraher, parents of junior student, 2020 

My ACT scores just came in today, and I made massive improvements in both English and Math. My scores rose over 3 points in both the English and Math categories! I got a 34 composite, 36 in English, and a 33 in Math, Reading and Science. Thank you so much for your help!

Thank you for working with my son on his Science ACT section. He consistently improved during the time that ColPrep Tutoring worked with him on the Science testing. His Science score improved from a 26 on the pre-ACT to a 36 when he took the test with the rest of the junior class!

With your help, Tyler significantly improved his overall SAT score from 1210 to 1370 and specifically reading/writing, from 570 to 700!!!!  No doubt the 1-on-1 tutoring and focus on reading/writing helped Tyler. No need to super score, will only be sending colleges these results!  Very excited as this will help increase Tyler's chances getting admitted to schools and crossing fingers even maybe a chance at some scholarship money.

"How about 1370 SAT score? - 140 point improvement!  I am so thrilled and so is Gresham.  We cannot thank you enough for your help.  You stepped right in and got right to work and we are so happy and this is a game changer in so many ways.  And all of this took place in one month! Thank you for advising us to play to Gresham's strength and include Math in the mix!"

Rick Perry, parent of East Chapel Hill senior, 2019

I can’t thank my son's ColPrep tutors enough for the huge difference they've made in his test scores! When he started working with them, he was struggling in several sections. In addition to helping him build those skills, they've also taught him the strategies and tools needed to conquer the ACT and SAT. His test scores have increased significantly and we couldn’t be more thrilled!

K.L., mother of Emerson Waldorf High School junior, 2019

I just got my SAT scores back. I went up 380 points total! Thanks to the strategies I learned in the SAT course, I felt like I cruised through the test. Thank you so much!"  

Michael Lane, CHHS junior, 2018

"For two 17-year-old boys to like working with their ACT tutor speaks volumes! The test strategies for them and feedback for me are truly at the highest level. I can't recommend your team and services enough!"
Stef Perry, mother of two Jordan HS juniors, 2018

"My daughter has been a different person since her meeting with you for organizational strategies and study skills. She has a confidence and enthusiasm I have not seen lately!  Thank you so much."

My daughter improved her ACT score by a full 5 points, which made her competitive for her reach schools!  In fact, she was accepted to one that was very high on her list!"

My son went up 8 points on the English portion of the ACT!  Holy cow!  We are very pleased. Thanks for your help."

"Your SAT prep class helped my son so much. After finishing your spring class, his score went up almost 200 points.  I'm a big fan of ColPrep Tutoring!  
Margaret Doherty, parent of CHHS junior, 2017


"We wanted to let you know that our daughter was accepted to all ten schools she applied to. She was offered over $20,000 at three of them. She has chosen Harvard! Please pass this along to her tutors. Your help was exactly what we needed. We are very proud of her." 
Heidi and Michael Lanford, parents of a WCS senior, 2018 

"I am in to NC State! So many of my friends were deferred, and I know it was an especially hard year to get accepted. I'm so glad you suggested I change my essay idea and be more vulnerable. It felt right and honest, and I'm so happy! Thanks for the writing lessons - they will be so helpful as I enter college as a confident writer!"
