Prescott helped improve my ACT score by 8 points. I was always a nervous test taker, but Prescott got me to relax and understand how I could increase my score one step at a time. It worked!

Prescott helps our students open wide the windows of opportunity for high quality post-secondary education. I’ve seen amazing composite score increases from our students who’ve worked with Prescott Tolk on SAT/ACT prep.

Prescott Tolk was a major influencer and contributor to the successful college acceptance of my twins, Clark and Gwyneth. His sense of humor and positive energy make what could otherwise be a daunting learning process fun.

I took the ACT twice and got the same score both times. After working with Prescott, I was able to boost up my score. He was very flexible with meeting times, which was helpful with my busy schedule. I highly recommend working with Prescott for anyone who is struggling to reach their full potential on the ACT!

Improving one’s ACT score requires a combination of reviewing the requisite curriculum, adopting proven test-taking strategies and repeatedly practicing  these accumulated skills in a timed setting. 


Above all, what separates Prescott’s program from others is a coaching mentality.  Preparing for these tests is like preparing for a marathon.  In working with his students, he continuously finds ways to maximize their potential and encourages them to engage the material on a daily basis.
