ONLINE ACT & SAT "Crusher" Classes To Get Into Your Dream College And Win Thousands In Scholarships

Convenient, focused, intensive ACT and SAT instruction...GUARANTEED!

Only 25 spots available to preserve optimal student-teacher ratio. Seats given out first-come, first-served.

The Difference

There are approximately 500,000 test prep options on the internet, so, naturally, you might be wondering, "What's so great about YOUR test prep classes?"

I wouldn't blame you for asking, because there's a lot riding on your decision.

Higher scores mean greater odds of getting into your life-changing, Dream College...
...and can make or break your chances of getting thousands - even tens of thousands - in scholarships!

So let me lay it out on the table why you should feel confident when you say "Yes" to our classes. Here is a short list of factors that differentiate us from the rest of the test prep world:

  • Experienced, Full-Time Instructor.  This is a full-time gig for Marissa, she eats, drinks and breathes test prep.  Other companies plug their part-timers into their "systems" before they move on to grad school or wherever they're headed. Marissa worked for one of those other companies, ask her to tell you her war stories some time! 
  • We use REAL ACT & SAT exams, not "Fakies" that other companies use, sometimes to demonstrate how much you need their instruction (the 98 lesson package!). This means that you are better prepared for the actual tests, and that you are maximizing your efficiency by prepping with legitimate materials.
  • REAL scores. Other test prep companies are notorious for "rigging" your initial diagnostic tests, which are WAYYYYY harder than actual tests.  Then, presto!  They show you an amazing score improvement when you take a real test!
  • Time management.  We teach you how to stay on pace and blow through the time-wasting problems, so you can score your absolute best.
  • Small classes.  We keep our classes small so that each student receives personalized, tutoring-style attention, but at group rates!
  • Psychology. Get into the minds of the test question authors, so you understand where they're trying to "getcha"  - so you can avoid score-killing traps they're hoping you fall for!
  • Psychology Part II. Your brain! We'll teach you how to say "Goodbye and good riddance!" to panic and anxiety, one of the biggest causes of low scores!
  • Efficiency.  Marissa teaches EXACTLY what you need to maximize your scores in the shortest amount of time, no more, no less. We want you to stay with us for the PRECISE amount of time and instruction that you need, not a minute longer! (We don't recommend the "3 Year Plan" to our clients.)
  • Different approach than a high school teacher.  Test prep is not a high school course or AP exam.  Marissa teaches strategies to score your absolute best on the tests, not regurgitate information in a high school academic course.  She doesn't waste time on gimmicks or catchphrases to "game" the tests, either.
  • Relaxed.  Our tutoring center is down by the water, which doesn't really matter if you're participating from another state or country.  But we do try to keep the unpleasant, weird rite of passage known as standardized testing as enjoyable and low key as possible, which means your child will do better on his/her tests.  The more relaxed they are, the better they'll perform!
  • Bigger picture approach. Test prep is one, important piece of the college planning puzzle, but we look at this process being about more - the 40+ years of your child's life, not the four years of college.  We can help create a balanced and realistic  college list, applications and essays, financial aid and scholarships, and selecting a major that is both satisfying AND lucrative...so your kid can get off mom and dad's payroll sometime (wouldn't that be nice!)

"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
Northport, New York

"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
Syosset, New York

"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
Wantagh

"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"
