This year we were fortunate enough to have two leading Boston television stations produce stories about Testive and how we've helped students increase their SAT and ACT scores.
In both stories, one thing was clear: both parents and students were happy with their decision to choose Testive for SAT / ACT prep.
This article reveals four reasons why they chose Testive.
First, New England Cable News (NECN) interviewed CEO Tom Rose and the Wissler family and featured them in their educational segment called "Making the Grade."
What stood out in this segment is what Joanna Wissler (mother) and her daughter Haley had to say about their experience with Testive, which helped Haley's score increase by 190 points.
Supportive one-on-one coaching
Joanna: "Her coach was able to quickly form a relationship with her and was very encouraging, kind, helpful and she trusted him."
Haley: "It was really nice to have somebody to talk to and ask specific questions. Something you can’t get from videos or doing practice problems on your own."
Convenience for the busy student
Haley: "A lot of test prep classes you have to go to a place at a certain time each week, but with Testive you can do it online and it's tailored directly to what you need to improve on."
Next, Boston CBS affiliate, WBZ-TV, did a piece about Testive in their "Eye on Education" segment.
For this interview, host Paula Ebben, interviewed Testive's CEO Tom Rose, student Alyssa Loessi, and her father Ed. This is what the Loessi's had to say about their experience.
Substantial score improvements
Alyssa: "When I got my PSAT score I felt really bad because it was below average, but [after using Testive] I’m really high up in the ranks for SAT scores. I went up 410 points, which is crazy.”
Opportunity to apply to top schools
Ed: If you think about the difference, a 400 point increase takes you from being able to apply to medium schools to being able to apply to really good schools.
