Tyler Hoffman

    As a recent high school graduate, I understand the difficulty of standardized testing and the college process. I am also well aware that high school students often feel overwhelmed with classes, sports, and other extracurricular activities.

    I strongly believe that I can help alleviate some of this stress by teaching you how to tackle the SAT or ACT. Having recently studied for and taken the SAT myself, I am very familiar with the concepts that are frequently tested, as well as the most efficient and effective way to arrive at the correct answer. In addition, last summer I had the opportunity to step into the shoes of a “test maker” by designing ACT practice sections for Ivy Bound, so I can help you recognize common patterns and traps that many students fail to notice.
