Work With Experts
While pursuing academic careers, the founders of Gateway Test Prep worked as tutors on their way to becoming published authors in peer reviewed journals, nationally awarded fellowship recipients, and employees of top 10 universities.
The SAT is Critical
The SAT is Not Fair
The SAT is Flawed
The SAT is indeed arbitrary,
and it does not measure intelligence, yet it has persisted for decades as a critical institution. Your score is powerfully correlated not just with admissions decisions, but also scholarship distribution as well as long term income.
The test prep industry focuses on review and explanation. The problem is that most students can discern why an answer is wrong after they make that misguided decision. The point of sound practice is to change your decision making.
That takes method.
At Gateway Test Prep, all instruction will be in the hands of two expert PhDs who attended elite top 10 PhD programs in the U.S. as ranked by U.S. News and World Report. John earned his PhD in eighteenth century British literature, and Jack earned his PhD in structural engineering. We have earned perfect GRE scores, published in international peer-reviewed journals, and won countless fellowships and scholarships including distinguished awards like The National Science Foundation's GRFP, which remains one of the most prestigious national fellowships in the sciences. Above you can see Jack during his undergrad working with world renowned water conservationists in Australia as part of the prestigious NSF PIRE program. Unfortunately, the vast majority of test prep companies use inexperienced, underpaid, and uncommitted instructors who have little control over the test material. It takes direct and unmitigated access to someone who has personally mastered the SAT to ensure that you too can follow the very same path to success. At Gateway Test Prep, you will have the full attention of the founders and owners of the company; no uncommitted third parties ever deliver instruction, and we take pride and enjoyment in helping you shape a better future full of potential, opportunities, and excellence.
Our students have secured amazing opportunities
The Sat Is Still Critical
The recent headlines about the SAT are poorly worded and poorly reported. Just because a school makes the exam optional does NOT mean it is insignificant. "Test Optional" schools still consider your score.
Your SAT Score is not just for Admission
Virtually all scholarships still ask for an SAT score, even those you apply to throughout undergrad. Scholarship committees struggle to review countless applications fairly, and your SAT score will count. So will its absence.
