Mr. Schmidt’s strengths as a teacher are not limited to his ability to captivate and inspire confidence on the often-daunting SAT. It is his personality, his energy, and his ability to relate to his students on an individual level that make these classes truly exceptional. Mr. Schmidt taught lessons in an interesting and unconventional manner that would prove successful when I took the test last fall. As a student who, at times, felt that the course would be unnecessary, I was happily proven wrong when I received my test scores. I would highly recommend Prepare to anyone wishing to end the dramatics that tests like these often are. Mr. Schmidt’s classes instilled the confidence and the information necessary for me to understand exactly what the SATs were and were not, and therein lay the difference.
