    I rarely write reviews. I spend a lot of time reading reviews, but just don’t write many reviews. I decided to share my experience to help others make a decision on the right SAT prep for their child. My son took the Rutledge Learning Academy’s SAP/ACT prep course during the summer of 2019 (prior to his junior year). I was very pleased with the course and the instructors (one for Math and one for English). The class is done live, online and recorded to review/watch later, if needed. SAT and ACT prep books need to be purchased from Amazon for the course. The instructors also provide a very detailed packet (via email) with lots of useful information. Doing well on the SAT exam takes strategy (in my opinion). The Rutledge Learning Academy course focuses on SAT test-taking strategies, time management and effective/efficient “guessing” strategies. There is some knowledge-based information, but the course primarily focuses on how to approach the question/problem, solve it as quickly and efficiently as possible, and/or recognize when it’s best to “guess” and move on. My son also took another local, in-person, one-on-one SAT tutoring class at over twice the cost of the Rutledge Learning Academy in the summer of 2020 (prior to his senior year). That class seemed to focus more heavily on tutoring/teaching the subject matter (i.e., how to solve the problem), not strategies for effective SAT test-taking. I personally felt like I wasted my money with that course, simply because doing well on the SAT is less about knowledge and more about strategy and time management. His SAT score did not improve from when he first time took the SAT in 2019, after completing the RLA course. As with all classes, you get out what you put in. Attending class provides the tools to do well. To actually do well on the test, you must practice the tools and strategies that are taught. I highly recommend taking the Rutledge Learning Academy class and then applying those strategies by doing practice problems outside of class, taking the practice tests in the books and also taking the Khan Academy Tests online. Overall, I was very pleased with the Rutledge Learning Academy and felt like I got a lot of value for my money. I plan to have my younger son take Brian’s class next summer (prior to his sophomore year).

    Mr. DuBoff’s SAT prep classes for English was very useful. My son improved his score by 70 points with a final score of 750 in SAT English. Mr. DuBoff helped him understand the various language constructs and how to use it appropriately in the writing section. He also went over the various strategies to analyze the text and answer the questions. He explains everything in detail with examples making it easier to understand. It was a very good course to prepare my son for the SAT.

    I expected maybe an 1100 on the SAT, a 1200 if i was super lucky- I got a 1400. All in part to Dr. Rutledge and Mr. DuBoff. Great sociable teachers and good use of SAT prep books, especially practice tests.
