We're back, live and in-person in the classroom in Glenwood Landing.  Space limited!

Your Child May Be a "Tweak" or Two Away from CRUSHING the SAT or ACT....

If your son or daughter is fed up and stressed out about not hitting their top SAT or ACT score...OR short on time and looking for the HIGHEST SCORES IN THE LEAST AMOUNT OF TIME....

Our crash courses are just what the doctor ordered!

Most test-takers need at least two-three attempts at the ACT & SAT to do their best.  Time an again, we've seen that last-minute brush-ups can create "Aha" moments that translate into meaningful score improvements...

...which, obviously, mean better odds of admission to your child's "Dream College"...

...and earning a bunch of generous scholarships to help defray the obscene cost of college...

So that you can comfortably afford tuition without scrimping your lifestyle or mortgaging your home or retirement up to the eyeballs!

Marissa's teaching a focused, intensive last-minute "Crash Course" for the August ACT & SAT (details below).  

The course covers tips and tricks, as well as "just enough" content to make a difference on the exam.

Class size is small so that everyone gets personalized attention, and so that we can make a reasonable attempt a social distancing (see below for more on that stuff).

"I just received my ACT back and my score increased from a 24 to a 28. My parents and I are thrilled! Please pass my thanks along to Marissa she was a huge help!"

Luke Verdon

"My son found Marissa to be an amazing teacher who explained math concepts well, taught him grammar in a way he was able to remember and showed him strategies to significantly help his reading comprehension. Marissa is kind, smart and patient and made my son feel confident and comfortable going into the SAT. On his first attempt at the SAT we saw a big score increase and we owe that to Marissa! I highly recommend Marissa and Lockwood College Consulting!"

Cindy Samide

"I want to thank you for starting your tutoring service. Marissa has shown my son how to understand the English, Math and Science sections and he has shown tremendous improvement on all parts of the ACT that he feels confident that he will score much higher than his last test, which he took without any tutoring. [EDITOR'S NOTE: Peter went from a 24 to a 31! And got into his top choice college :)]"

Barbara Rowan

"Hi Marissa, Katie and I wanted to be sure to thank you for all your efforts on her behalf. The scores came in this morning and she got a 32, up from a 30! She earned a 35 in both english and reading, up 3 and 2 points respectively, a 30 on the math, up 3 points, and a 29 on the science which stayed the same. She went off to school with a big smile on her face. Hopefully these couple of points will give her a leg up in the application process. Thanks again! Dawn"

First Class Guarantee

Because we're so confident that you'll love our live classes, we are putting our money where our mouth is with this simple, no fine print, no weasel clause guarantee:

Take the first class. If you decide, for any reason - even no reason at all - that our instruction isn't for you, just tell us that day and we'll promptly and cheerfully refund 100% of your tuition.  No hassles, no hard feelings, and we can still be friends.

NOTE:  Cancellations within 48 hours of the first day of class or no-shows are subject to a $50 fee, at our discretion, because the spot you signed up for represents a seat that another family could have taken, and paid for.

About our Covid Precautions

We're not doctors or scientists, but here's how we are conducting our live, in-person classes

We are not going to police whether or not your child is vaccinated because it's a personal choice and none of our business.

Due to current COVID levels, we ask that students wear masks during our class.

The above seems reasonable to us, based on local school district and CDC guidelines, but we are in the tutoring and college advising business, we are not scientists.

If you are not comfortable with this approach, you should not enroll.  If you do enroll, you are assuming the risk of infection, no matter how remote that may be.

As stated above, we reserve the right to conduct one or more classes online if infections rise and we determine in our best, reasonable judgment that this course of action is best.

This is a sticky, highly-charged subject, so please contact us if you have questions or concerns.


If you have any questions about content, strategies taught, scheduling, you name it - book a FREE Test Prep Strategy Session with our Master Instructor, Marissa, today!



Classes are held in our new Glenwood Landing office. Materials fee of $30 collected 1st day of class.
