I felt I was well prepared for the SAT-test. The SAT tutor was very nice and helpful. She was also flexible with the location and time of the classes. Overall, I was very satisfied with the SAT program and would recommend it to other people.

I wanted to take the opportunity and thank you for your support and effort during the last couple of weeks, especially as you have also committed time on the weekends and during holidays!! This is much appreciated. I think that we managed to produce some very good essays in the end, which will hopefully be recognized by the schools.
