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!
Dr Benthall's class was instrumental in increasing my ACT scores.The strategies he teaches are very simple and straight to the point, allowing you to focus on the things that really matter. He makes class fun and the homework he assigns is very helpful in working out any issues you may have with each section. Most importantly, I was accepted to amazing colleges, including Yale University, Duke University, North Carolina State University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I will be attending Yale University in the fall. My composite score increased from a 32 to a 35 - a 3 point increase! My math and science scores increased the most, with my math score increasing from a 29 to a 34 and my science score increasing from a 31 to a 36, both 5 point increases! My english score increased from a 34 to a 35- a 1 point increase - and my reading score increased from a 32 to a 34 - a 2 point increase.
I want to thank Dr. Benthall for helping my daughter prepare for the ACT/SAT. You were so instrumental in helping her get the scores she needed. We both know that this was no easy task for my daughter. She initially started with the ACT which proved to be difficult to get the scores she needed. It wasnt because she couldn't get it (she passed the practice test that Dr. Benthall gave at the end of the ACT prep course) however due to her ADHD/high anxiety when it comes to taking test she could not focus properly. Because she isn't easily defeated she decided to take the SAT prep course with Dr. Benthall. He not only let her take the prep course (the class had already started by time we decided to take the course) but he worked with us financially. Dr. Benthall gave my daughter extra practice test and anytime she had a question he responded almost immediately. He encouraged her and gave her tips on how to calm her anxiety down when testing. She took the SAT one time and received the scores she needed to apply to the two schools she always dreamed of going. I am proud to report that she received a full academic AND room/board scholarship to East Carolina University. Also, she got accepted to the Study Abroad program and the Pre-Nursing program. She will be studying in Italy in January for 4 months!!!! Thank you Dr. Benthall for helping my daughter get to her next level. You are truly amazing and gifted. We appreciate all you have done!
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!
