Dr Benthall -- After Hannah's last ACT exam, she got a 4-point increase over her initial ACT score. She was thrilled because it meant she would receive scholarship money so she can now attend Mississippi State University! Just wanted to give you a heads up! All the best."

Dr Al, I wanted to update you with the college decisions for our twins since it is getting close to the May 1st deadline. Our son is headed to UNC Chapel Hill and our daughter is going to Boston College. It has been a long journey through the college app process. Your help in prepping them for the ACT provided a major benefit for us. We couldn't have these opportunities without your service. Thank you so much!
My son's scores AND his confidence improved after taking Al Benthall's class. His SAT score jumped over 100 points, and his ACT score improved to a 34! Our son said that even though each test was different, he used a lot of the strategies and information that he learned from the course. This confidence helped him relax and focus during the tests. He said that Al was possibly the best teacher he's ever had - challenging, informative, and enriching. This course is truly a gift to your child!
I just received my ACT scores. I took Dr. B’s SAT prep class earlier this year. I came to him with a starting score of a 24 on the ACT, which equates to an 1180 on the SAT. After the first class, I made a 1320 on the SAT which was a 140 point increase! After I audited the class a second time, I decided to take both the SAT and ACT. On the SAT, I made a 1360 and a 32 on the ACT, which equates to a 1430 on the SAT! That means I had an equated SAT score increase of 250 points and a total ACT score increase of 8 points! I used everything he taught me in the SAT class and applied it to the ACT. The time management skills worked phenomenally well. I had extra time on almost every test section. Thank you, Dr. B so much for everything you taught me! I am eternally grateful!
