The College Advisory Service has been dedicated to helping students maximize their potential on the S.A.T. for over twenty- five years. Because we recognize that students have busy schedules, we have a carefully refined, in-depth approach with highly experienced teachers working as a team. As a result, our students enjoy success in obtaining excellent score increases with a reasonable time commitment and the most flexible make-up policy available in the area. In addition, we believe that rarely can one person teach well to all sections of the test. That is why our students are taught by three teachers, each teaching only in his or her area of expertise. This provides our students with specifically targeted instruction in all areas of the test.
