I have known George for decades. He has a very clear and dramatic effect enabling students to think and rise to their full potential. George’s influence on so many lives has had significant impact, and I greatly admire him for doing this.

SAT & ACT Preparation:
Perdocere is proud to provide by far the best math preparation for the SAT, ACT, and SAT subject tests. Teach the required material, drill practice exams, detailed decomposition of and solutions to problems, expose underlying themes, question categories, time management, and test taking strategies. Perdocere takes a unique approach to teaching the math portions of these tests – Perdocere actually teaches the math! No tricks that try to replace learning and comprehension, no gimmicks with fancy names, no relying on memorizing formulas. High scores are earned through a combination of the best tailored instruction, diligent work by the student, developing proper problem solving and test taking skills, and drilling practice exams. Perdocere students consistently achieve superior scores and develop creative problem solving skills for success now and in the future.

Whether to take the SAT or ACT?
The most certain way to determine whether a student has a propensity for one test over the other is to take a separate practice test for each. Perdocere not only analyzes the results of these practice tests, but assesses the abilities and capabilities of the student by direct observation during the examination process. It is usually straight forward to then determine which test is better suited for the student. Single tests that attempt to determine this propensity suffer from a lack of consideration for a wide variety of factors. The math portions of the SAT and ACT are distinctly different and require very different preparation.

ACT Test Changes:
The ACT announced section retesting and superscoring, starting in September 2020. I am pleased to have always personally provided, by far, the best private ACT preparation and the best private tutoring for schoolwork. The goal is not just to get into your college of choice, but also to succeed there!
