Funny, made things clear and related things to real life. The SAT / ACT course was very helpful, I don’t think I would’ve improved my reading skills without it. This course also gave me strategies to break down a reading. I got a feel for the SAT and had practice in areas I struggled in.

Meet a Honolulu SAT Tutor: Kevin M.
Kevin M. became familiar with standardized tests at a young age, having spent most of his childhood working with professional instructors and tutors after he was diagnosed with ADHD. Kevin struggled to pay attention in class and even though he studied hard for tests, his performance never reflected his preparation, which "led me to feel incredibly frustrated, because I really wanted to do well in school," shares Kevin. Kevin's parents worked closely with his school, and after multiple rounds of neuropsychological testing with a variety of doctors, Kevin was determined to have ADHD, which helped his academic struggles be understood in a completely different light. Kevin's guidance counselor helped his parents find a tutor to work with him, teaching him effective test-taking strategies and guiding him to study in ways that allowed him to retain important information. "Working with a tutor didn't immediately make school easy for me," Kevin clarifies. "Learning was still difficult, but I'd finally seen that it wasn't impossible, and knowing I could do it gave me the motivation I needed to keep working hard."
A native of Rhode Island, Kevin grew up dreaming of attending Brown University but knew there was no way his family could afford such a prestigious school even if he managed to be accepted. "If I really wanted to go there, I knew I needed financial assistance, and it seemed like a high SAT score was one realistic way of getting scholarships. So, I decided I would work however hard I needed to in order to ace the SAT," Kevin says with a smile. Kevin worked with his long-time tutor to prepare for the SAT, in addition to participating in an online prep course that offered him flexibility around his ongoing commitments and extracurricular activities. "By the time the real SAT came around, I'd taken so many practice exams and studied so many questions, nothing was a surprise, and I was relaxed and confident enough to work to my full potential."
Kevin's hard work and dedication were rewarded when he not only received his official acceptance letter to Brown University, but also received generous offers of financial aid, ensuring he could afford to attend the school of his dreams due almost entirely to his outstanding SAT score. Kevin graduated from Brown with a degree in education before obtaining his master's degree with a specialization in education policy from New York University. Kevin ultimately accepted a position with a well-known educational consulting company that allowed him to work with schools on identifying better ways to serve the needs of students with learning differences, ensuring other children would receive the support that had been so beneficial to him as a child. After three years, the company offered Kevin the opportunity to transfer to one of their offices in Hawaii, and after consulting with his husband, he gladly accepted. Shortly after moving, Kevin began offering weekend seminars for neurodiverse high school students on how to prepare for the SAT, using the skills he'd learned during college, as well as the ones he'd developed from his own tutoring experiences. His workshops became so popular that wait-lists began to develop, and when he was invited to join the team at Manhattan Review, he couldn't have been happier. "It's the greatest privilege imaginable to support my students," he shares, "especially the neurodiverse ones, because they're not afraid of doing things differently and they genuinely want to learn." When Kevin isn't making the SAT less terrifying to his students, he enjoys creating furniture from reclaimed pieces of wood, visiting local bars to support the live music scene, and stargazing with his husband at the J. Watumull Planetarium.
