Testimonials from Parents and Students

Parents

- ¨ The score improvement was great, but I was mostly impressed with the motivation that my child gained from you – not just on the SAT, but in school, and in all things measurable. You, or your course, I’m not sure which - has ‘transformed’ our boy. I can’t thank you enough! ~ Mrs. Hamblin

- “Clarke just got his scores. He improved his scores by 110 points to a 1460. Improved math by 60 to 760 and reading & writing by 50 to 700. This should qualify him for the Palmetto Fellows scholarship!!! We appreciate all of the help." ~ Ginger Cunningham

- “Brett told me he was so nervous when he was checking his ACT scores because none of his friend’s scores went up, but you can not believe the excitement in his voice when he called to tell me that his score had improved 6 points to a 24, and that he had qualified for the Life Scholarship! It was a wonderful experience to hear him so excited about an academic accomplishment. Thank you. Thank you. ~ Mrs. Burnett

- Just wanted to say thank you! My daughter Ellie was at the class at Ben Lippen HS in April. Her goal was to get over 1200 for the Palmetto Fellows Scholarship...well she got 1240! That is 150 points higher than the last time! She is hoping for even higher in June! Thank you! We'll be signing up our next daughter in another year or so! ~ Tricia Williamson

- Hi Jonathan, this is Blair McDow, Eliza's mother. Her three SAT scores look like this: June 2013 (no prep work at all beforehand (Crit. Reading: 490 Math: 500 Writing: 590). Then she took your class in December (Crit. Reading: 520 Math: 560 Writing: 610). In May, after taking your class again as well as a 4 -hour 1 on 1 tutoring Module, (Crit. Reading: 630 Math: 560 Writing: 610). So just counting the Critical Reading and Math, her total score went from a 990 to an 1190 after taking your class twice and private tutoring. Up 200 points! She also went from a 21 to a 28 on the ACT this past time (1270 Equivalent SAT score).

- ¨ SHE DID IT! Maigan was able to bring her Math up to a 560, and her highest Critical Reading Score was a 540 from the October SAT, so she improved 120 points total, and qualified for the Life Scholarship (worth $5,000 per year). Thank you so much for your help. ~ Robyn Nieri

- “I’m not calling for my son. He took your course a while ago ~ and went up nearly 200 points. He’s 21 now. The reason I’m calling is because I wanted you to help two of my friends’ children. Just like Pam Stuckey gave my your name because her child had come through your course and gone up 200 points, I figured I’d pass on the information to these moms also.” ~ Wendy Wolf

- ¨ Hey man, wanted to sign my son up for your course, but I also wanted to update you on my daughter, who also took your course. She ended up 80 or 90 points higher on her SAT (on what was already a very high Critical Reading & Math Score), and 5 points on her ACT score! She was accepted to all 8 colleges she applied to, and ended up with over $300,000 in scholarship dollars over 4 years at the University of St. Louis. ~ Armando Colombo

- ¨ J.T. met with you at the Lexington Library for a 4-hour tutoring module, and improved his score 120 points and went from a 1240 to a 1360. We were so thankful after he got those scores, and I was amazed at the points you were able to put on his score in such a short time. That score secured his admission to Furman Honors, USC Honors, and Davidson Honors. I wish we would have known about you for my older daughter, but I’m spreading the word to everyone I know now. - Brenda Brittingham

- ¨Just wanted you to know that Michala improved her scores 130 points (100 in the Math and 30 in the Critical Reading) after the first time through the course. She’ll be there for the July course also! ~ Donna Grinnell

- ¨ My boy is the kind of kid that kind of keeps to himself most of the time, so when he called me in the middle of school today, I immediately thought, "Oh no, what's he done now?" Of course, I was thrilled when he told me he was calling to pass on how he’d done on the October SAT. He was up 160 points! I'm not sure he's ever been that excited about something relating to academics, and we have your course to thank. ~ Hugh Wilson (no relation to me)

- ¨ My daughter Meghan has tried to call you several times to tell you the good news on her SAT scores. Meghan took your May SAT class in Florence, SC. Before your class, Meghan got a 970 total on her SAT. After your class her score went up 180 points to an 1150. Needless to say we are thrilled! Her math score alone went up 120 points. Since we now know she is capable of a better score, her next goal is 1200. She will be attending your summer camp in July in Columbia. Thank you for your help. - Carolyn Green

- ¨ Just wanted to give you a quick update. Carson’s scores came up again this time. He now has a 1250 (620 Critical Reading/ 630 Math). This allows him to meet all the requirements for the Palmetto Fellowship, and to qualify for some nice academic awards from the colleges he is looking at. Just to remind you, his baseline SAT score was a 1110. After taking your May 2009 course he scored an 1140 (up 30 points). He took the course again and on the October 2009 SAT scored an 1170 (up 30 additional points). He took your course a third time for the January 2010 SAT (retaking the course is free regardless of how many times you retake it), and scored a 1250 (up an additional 80 points). Since we began taking your course, his score has increased 140 points. It was certainly worth the investment. I will encourage other parents to get their children to take the course, and be willing to stick with it 3 or 4 times. Thanks for your help. My son is really proud of his SAT score now. - Clyde Nance

- ¨ We are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hannah is now up a total of 160 points on the SAT through your program. We still have some work to do, but we are still hoping to get some good scholarship dollars. - Pam Brandon

- (Update:) “ Hannah is up a combined 230 points since we enrolled in your course. 40 more points, and she’ll have earned a full college scholarship! - Pam Brandon

- (A Final Update from the Brandon family:) “Hey Coach Wilson! Well I got it!!! Finally!!! I went up 70 points in the reading for the March SAT. My total score, since enrolling in your class, has gone up 300 points! Thank you so much for everything you have done to help me improve my score! I now have a full ride to Winthrop! Thanks again!" - Hannah Brandon

- ¨ Just wanted to let you know Sam came up 120 points on SAT. Yea! The entire score improvement was in the Math Section. He will be ready to start back with classes in the fall. - Becky Lourie

- “Jonathan, I am very remiss in sending this BUT Nes did it!!!! He made a 700 on the nose in Math! (This score is significant because it garnered him a 1400 on the SAT, and qualified him for the Palmetto Fellows Scholarship worth $30,000 over 4 years - on the June SAT - which he took on the same day as his high school graduation.) We were still in Camden after 1:30, and his graduation in Sumter started at 2 PM, but he got there in time for the Valedictorian speech. You were right in your prediction that it would be a worthwhile adventure. Many, many thanks for your help. Nes would make a good poster boy for you now!! My daughter is a 10th grader this year, so I'm sure our paths will cross again. Best wishes! - Carole Arnette

- ¨ [True to her promise, Mrs. Arnette’s daughter started the course (following in her brother’s footsteps) a few years later, and we received this from Mrs. Arnette]: I know you have been hearing from many parents in Florence about the upcoming Columbia class because I’ve been telling everyone about you. Adele is planning to participate in that course too. You will be pleased to know that after the last Florence Course, she jumped up 90 points to an 1170. We are crossing our fingers for that last 30 points ASAP! Thanks! - Carole Arnette

- ¨ Here are Nico’s new SAT scores. Math = 600 (up 60 points) Critical Reading = 600 (up 120 points). We are up 180 points through your course, and he has a 1200. He’s a junior. When should we get back into your course again? - Liza Legaspi

- ¨ My son’s score improved a 140 points! Thanks! - Mrs. Rast

- ¨ Hi Jonathan, Mission Accomplished! Our son got his June SAT scores today, and got a 620 on Math and 630 on Critical Reading. That is an increase of 100 points following his two private sessions with you the week before the June SAT. Thanks to all your help he’s a Palmetto Fellow! Thanks so much! - Mrs. Fitzgibbon

- ¨ Thanks so much for helping my son with his SAT score. He had quite an attitude about taking the course since he enjoys his day dreaming time. He kept his attitude at bay, and I must say that you are tops in my book now. He came home the first day and said he actually enjoyed it! I think he was really impressed with you. Thanks again for your help, and for inspiring my son. I’m not quite sure what you did, but he doesn’t impress easily. I am so pleased. - Mrs. Baker

- ¨ I won’t forget you! Thanks! - Mrs. Weathers

- ¨ Well I’ve just got to tell you, when we opened up our son’s SAT scores, we nearly fell out of our chairs. He improved in every section (70 points total), and we simply couldn’t be more happy. He now has a 1350 (Critical Reading & Math), and is eligible for a whole lot more scholarship money than he would have been before we began working with you. Use me as a reference anytime! - Mr. Croom

- ¨ My son’s score went up 130 points. He couldn’t have done it without your help. Thanks! - Mr. Levy

- ¨ We got (my daughter’s) PSAT scores yesterday. She had much improvement. Her scores are as follows: Critical reading 61 (94th percentile), Math 64 (96th percentile), Writing skills 61 (96th percentile). Needless to say, we want you to work with her again this summer. – Mrs. Kocher

- ¨ We are so excited to share with you our news that Jordan improved his SAT score in November by 200 points!!! Our initial goal was to “crack” a 1000… now he’s 10 points away from becoming a Palmetto Fellow. Thank you so much! - Mrs. Berry (He improved an additional 30 points on the following SAT).

- ¨ Jonathan: Tyler's highest Math score is now a 560. His highest Critical Reading Score is a 610. He improved 140 points after taking your course, but wants to go to Clemson, (so he will be in your next course needing at least 30 more points). Thanks. Diana Floyd

- ¨ Just wanted to let you know Cole’s SAT core went up 90 points! (from a 1010 to an 1100)! Cha-Ching (Cole qualifies for the $5,000 SC Life Scholarship as a result)! We’ll see you at the Florence course on Saturday. Thanks! - Nealie Smith

He beat the 1400 point barrier, smashing it really, and qualified as a Palmetto Fellow. USC accepted him into their Honors College. Since he began working with you his Junior year, he improved his SAT score by over 300 points according to my calculations. - Peter Killman

- ¨ Well Brooke our daughter came through the course back in the spring and improved her score by 160 points. We’re going to send her back this fall to see how many points you can put on her score the second time through the course. I also think the SAT Prep Forum (Our “7/11 Convenience Store” for all things SAT) will be valuable for her as well. - Bill Inman

- ¨ Chynna just received her SAT scores from the last test – she improved 150 points! We’re very pleased with this score improvement. - Jerry Harrison

- ¨ Just wanted to drop a note and let you know that Cameron is up to 1210 so far on the SAT. This is a 140 pt improvement since the first time he took your course. We’d like another 40 points if we can get it. In the meantime, thanks so much for all your work. - Russell Patterson

Her highest math and reading combined score now is 1130. She is so excited and she wants to take the SAT one more time and concentrate on the Critical Reading, so hopefully she can increase her reading score enough to reach 1200 for palmetto fellow. Thank you so much for helping her and working around her busy schedule! Thanks again and Take care! - Kaye Wilson

- “Jonathan, 1360 (700 Math 660 Reading). Increase of 220 points. Now he wants to break 1400! Thank you, Peggy Kinney

Students

- ¨ Hey Coach Wilson this is Will Slagsvol, just wanted to let you know I just got my SAT scores back from my last test (I had to take it February 20th because of weather) and I have improved 100 points since I joined your class. I went from a 1030 to a 1130 on this last test. Thanks so much for the help!

- ¨I started the course with an 980 baseline SAT score (Critical Reading & Math). I was only able to attend 4 of the 5 class sessions for the October SAT, but my score went to a 1230! My Math score went from a 470 to a 620. It helped me really simplify the math to the point where I was doing such simple things on even the hardest ‘Level 5’ problems. ~ Robert Barrow

- ¨ When I started this course, my score was so much lower than I wanted it to be., But the course not only made the Math easier but it helped me in the Critical Reading Section too. Each section went up 100 points ~ so a 200 point score improvement so far! ~ Anna Lousie Segars

- After the first time through the course, my overall SAT score went up 100 points. I went up 60 points in the Math and 40 points in the reading. I hope to keep going up when I take the course again (free under the Unlimted Free Course Retake Provision) ~ Hanna Niebuhr

- ¨ Coach, I got my June scores in a few weeks ago, and I wanted to let you know how I did. This time I got a 1360! The breakdown was a 610 in the Math, and a 750 in the Critical Reading. [His baseline Math score (pre course enrollment) was in the low 500 range, and the baseline Critical Reading score around 600 ~ resulting in a 200 plus point score improvement in the course]. It been great! - John Behnke

- ¨ Coach, I’ve improved 100 points after taking the course one time ~ I’ve got some really high goals, so next time I’d like to get at least another 100. - Sawyer Lee

- ¨ Hey Coach! I just wanted to let you know that my June SAT scores came in today. I ended up making a 590 in critical reading, a 700 in math, and a 650 in writing. So I ended up making a 1290. But I made a 600 on my last critical reading so I guess I actually have a 1300 (this is the correct calculation). I really appreciate all the time you spent with me to try and improve my math scores, it seemed to really pay off,as I improved 80 points! I guess I should now focus on Critical Reading for the next SAT in order to make my score look really good (: Thanks. - Mandy Smoak

- ¨ Hey Coach, I wanted thank you for helping me improve my SAT scores. Your SAT prep classes have helped me so much!!! I wanted to let you know that my math score has gone from a 560 to a 650 and then to 740! My reading is currently at a 610 ,and I was wondering how I should go about improving that score. My goal is to have a 1400 in the SAT. If I improved my reading by 50 points, I could have a 1400. What should we do next? Thanks again for everything you’ve already done for me. - Emily Brittingham

- ¨ Hey Coach Wilson! Just checked my March SAT scores. I now have a 1220 on the SAT - I’ve got the Palmetto Fellows Scholarship now ($7,500 per year for 4 years)! My math score went up from a 480 to a 570 this time (90 point score improvement) - with the Writing Section I have an 1870. Thanks for your help. - Molly Brandon

- ¨ Coach! I just received my first SAT scores back, from the March 14 SAT. I got a 600 on the critical reading, 710 on the math, and a 580 on the writing. I am so excited to have received this score (a 1310), and have your SAT course to thank. I was only supposed to get a 1250, according to my PSAT scores. Thanks so much! - Jessica Tobey (not every student enters our course with a ‘baseline score’).

- ¨ It was a fun, and very interesting class. Coach Wilson helped me increase my SAT score a lot. My math score alone improved by 120 points! - Carolyn Bian-Lingle

- ¨ I’m up 90 points the first time through the course! The next time I take the SAT, I think I’ll do even better because I’m really starting to understand ‘the system’ now. - Matt Wykal

- It boosted my self confidence, and helped me score higher than all of my buddies! - Rachel Lehman

- ¨ First of all, I want to tell you my SAT score. This time, I improved my verbal score 50 points (bringing my total score improvement to 90 points)! I’m thrilled, and I couldn’t have done it without your help. - Katie Chapman

- ¨ Sorry I never got back to you sooner, but I got an 1120 on my November SAT (which was up 100 points from my October SAT), but on the December SAT I got an 1030 or something around that, but I think that was because I hadn't attended hardly any of your classes that month. So thanks so much for all your help and helping me get the Life Scholarship (: Thanks again - Meaghan Fox

- ¨ I am writing to thank you for all the help you gave me with the SAT. My score increased by 120 points, (170 if you include the writing section). I look forward to seeing you very soon in both the SAT Prep classes, and the Speed Reading classes this fall. - Katrina Knight

- ¨ I needed a 1200 (on the SAT) to get the Palmetto Fellows Scholarship. After taking Coach Wilson’s class, my score went up 70 points, allowing me to qualify for the Palmetto Fellows Scholarship. The course was worth a couple extra thousand dollars in scholarships each year. - Cari Walsh

- ¨ Hey there Coach, it's Caroline Jones! I was enrolled in your June SAT prep class, and it worked wonders for my score. I went up 80 points to an 1150. I am taking the course for the November SAT in hopes of more improvements then. (There is no additional cost to retake the course - regardless of how many times a student needs to come through it to get the score improvement they need).

- ¨ I’ve gone up 120 points so far, so I’m pleased. I still have some work to do to get the Palmetto Fellows (just 10 points). I’ll keep you posted. - Katrine Victoria

- ¨ Hey Coach Wilson, I have been meaning to tell you how I did on my last SAT. I went up 70 points. This was so exciting for me because now I will receive a $2,500 college scholarship each year! I would have to say, studying everyday during my study hall with your online forum and your step by step instructions was most helpful. Thank you so much for your help! - Megan Shahoud

- ¨ Coach: I went up 100 points from the March SAT to the June SAT, and I took the June SAT with my wisdom teeth having just been removed, so hopefully I can do even better when I take the test again under more optimal conditions. - Caroline Matthews

“Now, I could go on for hours about why I believe my course is the best SAT course out there, but I’ll leave you with this simple truth: I do what I do because I want to make an impact in your kid’s life – one that no one ever made in my life.

You might be surprised to know that I was not a very good student in high school.

Moreover, to this date, I have never come across anyone who scored lower than I did on the SAT. In fact, if it weren’t for……...”
