A 99th percentile scorer on both the SAT and ACT exams, Jim Addeo is the sole-owner and teacher of Prowess Test Prep. His approach to test prep is two-pronged.  Firstly, it is crucial to refine the student's test-taking strategy, which involves expert time management, smart decision making, pattern recognition and a deep understanding of how the test is written such that the student can avoid traps and exploit short cuts. Secondly, the student must gain fluency of academic curriculum in the proper order, targeting the most commonly tested concepts first thus clearing the most efficient path to maximizing score.   In these veins, Jim is constantly rewriting and adapting his personal curriculum to stay up-to-date on continually changing exams.

Balanced Comprehensive Prep

Prowess has two levels of zoom-online SAT classes - a six-week Level One course and an eight-week Level Two course.  Course curriculum is equally weighted across all test sections for a balanced approach to test prep.  Students will learn not only the most crucial academic curriculum but also the test-taking strategies, shortcuts, and methods that aim to maximize score.


Individualized Attention

With private tutoring, it's possible to laser-focus on the precise needs of the individual.  This option works well for those who only want help in very specific test areas or for those who wish to follow up a group course with a second wave of prep that will hit matters more deeply.
