We are so pleased with Prep 1st and the instruction Velinda and Douglas Parker provided to our daughter Cierra. Douglas Parker worked closely with Cierra on math strategies, which boosted her confidence upon re-taking the SAT. Cierra truly enjoyed working with Mr. Parker and said that the concepts became more relatable with each session. We highly recommend Prep 1st as a critical component for effective SAT strategies for your student's success on the path to college and academic achievement.

So Happy That I Hear about Prep1st!

Prep 1st has an an outstanding team and they have a sincere desire to improve the test scores of their students. This is an extremely well spent investment. Our son's SAT scores improved hundreds of points. He couldn't wait to get to class and he felt like he was learning something new in every session. His Prep1st experience was also beneficial to his regular academics studies as he learned principals that could translate to the everyday classroom and study skills that he can carry with him into college and beyond. The enthusiasm that is exuded by the team spills over to the students as I could see the excitement of students when class time would come to an end. Thank you Prep1st and keep making a difference in the lives of students!

We were so happy to have heard about Prep1st and truly say that this was a well spent investment. Our son's SAT test score improved by hundreds of points and he was so exited to be a part of this learning experience. Many times students don't look forward to these additional responsibilities, but that's not the case with Prep1st. My hat goes off to the entire team as this is an experience that will positively affect your student. They will learn lessons that will also help them in all of their academic endeavors. Keep making a difference Prep1st! The team is so enthusiastic, skilled, and dedicated. I can throw up both my hands with gratitude. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you

Outstanding Results, Reasonably Priced

Prep1st delivers on their promise to help students achieve academic excellence! Our son increased his SAT score by 300 points over his practice scores, Prep1st doesn't just offer tutoring, they cared about my son as if he was their own creating opportunities for him to have one-on-one sessions if needed. They analyzed his test scores and focused their instruction to meet his needs. His grasp of the material and confidence improved, which contributed to test taking success. My son relied on the strategies he learned at Prep1st and we couldn't be happier with the results. Despite the pandemic, they were able to rally and offer sessions in a sanitized, safe environment with maximum social distancing. Don't look any further, Prep1st is the place to be. Thank you!

UP 110 points in 5 weeks!

My daughter went up 110 points in just five weeks of test prep. She started off with a 1080 but then ended up with a 1190 after just a few SAT prep sessions. My family and I are so thankful for this experience and will be test prepping our son here in hopes of a even better outcome especially since he has a whole year. The teachers are very involved with the students and make sure they have everything they need to succeed no matter how much time they have!

Excellent Prep Course

Prep1st helped my daughter increase her SAT score by 150 points! They provide strategies and tutoring that are essential to help your child improve their SAT or ACT score. Prep1st takes pride in their methodology to improve your child's test scores and they take the time to understand your child's strengths and weaknesses. I like Prep1st because they will work with your child individually and in a group classroom setting. They are very flexible in scheduling one-on-one tutoring. They also took proper precautions during the pandemic to make their classroom safe. Thank you Prep1st! My daughter couldn't have done it without you!

Committed to helping your child succeed

THANK YOU Mrs. Parker, Mr. Parker and the Prep 1st Team!! We were so excited to see the results of our son's second SAT today---he increased his math score by more than 100 points and his overall SAT score by 120 points.  The review of fundamental concepts, teaching of test strategies, and positive reinforcement and feedback all contributed to his confidence and ability. In addition to the regular classes, the before-class sessions with Mr. Parker helped his understanding of math concepts and reminded him of what he had learned earlier in school but forgotten. Mrs. Parker's no-nonsense and keeping it real approach with the students--and parents--was also an asset. They care about helping your child succeed to the best of his/her ability and seeing them through the process. This pandemic has presented many challenges to our high school seniors (and others). Just grateful that our son was able to take the classes and the two SAT tests...and that now he can use this higher score on his college applications. That's a big deal. Thanks again Prep 1st.

My son prepared for the SAT and ACT exam with Prep First and due to the excellent tutoring he received he achieved the scores he needed in order to get into the school of his choice. The Prep First is not only excellent because of it's excellent preparation skills it teaches but because they actually care about the kids they tutor and are available to them anytime they have questions. We were extremely happy with our son's scores and we owe much of his success to Prep First.
