#### What Students Say

*“Mrs. Radha has been a great teacher and really helped me in my SAT. This year, her coaching allowed me to surpass my score goal and achieve a phenomenal 1560 composite score in my March 2021 SAT. In her classes, she always put in the time and effort to answer our questions, sort out our difficulties, and guide us through the best possible way to tackle the SAT. I had always had trouble with the comprehension section of the SAT, but Mrs. Radha’s coaching allowed me to overcome that obstacle. Furthermore, Mrs. Radha always pushed me to strive toward perfection. Her confidence in my abilities motivated me to perform my best and to never cut corners. Mrs. Radha also had great resources for her students to help us succeed. Our lessons and weekly full-length tests gave me many opportunities to perfect my time management skills for the test and helped me practice my approaches to difficult problems. Also, if I felt I needed more practice, I could always ask Mrs. Radha for an extra practice test to complete on my own time. Overall, Mrs. Radha’s coaching played a huge part in my success on the SAT and I do recommend her SAT prep classes.”*

*“Thanks a lot Ms.Radha, Darshan scored 1550! Just got the scores on the 16th. Very happy and thankful, we found you for our first son Goutham who also scored very well with your methodical and consistent repeated practices, and got placed in almost all the good UCs he applied for a Computer Science major in 2020.Your initial detailed methodical classes on English reading and comprehension and grammar analysis classes to prep and get the kids ready for the following test weeks are very helpful. Also, the varied ranges of SAT papers with different difficulties help tune the kids robustly to handle tough tests.”*
