The average improvement after Tom’s 12 hour core program is 4 points. A few of his students have even improved by 11 points at the 12 hour mark!

The national average improvement after a standard test prep program is only 2 points, and most programs run for over 30 hours!

Over the last 19 years, Tom has researched countless tests and test prep methods. He kept everything that is effective, and eliminated everything that isn’t. His program is designed for maximum efficiency in the shortest amount of time (with the least amount of effort). That is why his students usually get double the results in less than half of the time.
