Meet Prep Expert Success Story Student Caolinh P.

Caolinh wanted to fine-tune the high SAT score he already achieved.

Prep Expert student Caolinh P. first came to us with a 1470 SAT score. 1470 is already a pretty fantastic score, that many other kids would aspire to already. However, Caolinh wanted to score even higher, trying to get to that perfect score and knew that he needed help in fine-tuning her weak spots with the test.

That’s why she and her parents did their research into different test prep companies and, after deliberation, eventually decided to sign up for our signature SAT prep course. After signing up, Caolinh immediately dialed in her focus and began absorbing and practicing Shaan’s various tips.


Caolinh’s Most Helpful Tip

The tips that helped Caolinh out are ridiculously simple but important.

When we first reached out to Caolinh to asked what she felt was the most helpful tip she learned, she simply responded with,

“…I believe I definitely benefited most from the test-taking strategies. All the tips and tricks really helped me feel more confident while I was taking the test.”

Indeed, we’ve found that for many students, the actual strategies for tackling the test, such as timing, all add up and create confidence for handling the format itself. Being able to analyze question prompts quickly and then formulating the correct answer choice efficiently is daunting for anyone. However, those difficulties are why our instructors take so much time breaking down the strategies and then providing sufficient homework and practice tests for students to sharpen their practice of them.

After working hard in our course and finally facing the SAT itself again, Caolinh can finally enjoy the fruits of her labor with a score of 1590 – a near perfect score! Right now, Caolinh is in the process of applying to schools, so we have yet to know where she finally chooses to go. She did inform us though that her interests are ambitious,

”…I’m looking at either History or Creative Writing combined with Music.”

In terms of future career after school, Caolinh is equally as ambitious,

“…Ideally, I would be able to work as a historian, professor, or as a politician, where I’d be able to use both History and Creative Writing and still be in a position to have time to continue playing music.”


Given her high score and interests, it’s impossible to imagine that she will not end up at a school that allows her to flourish.
