NEW! Now Available: Test Prep & Tutoring Services
One of the most frequent questions I'm asked by parents and students alike is: "What do you recommend for test prep?" Another repeat question is: "Does 'test optional' really mean 'optional'?"
The data shows that students who submit test scores earn admission at higher rates than those who don't. Additionally, merit aid at many schools is directly tied to test scores.
Further, according to NACAC's most recent annual report, of all the factors that admissions officers take into account, GPA is ranked #1.
As a result, it became clear to me that in order to best serve students and families, we needed to expand our services and offer support in Test Prep and in Academic Tutoring.
We are genuinely thrilled to announce Elevated Admissions' newest team member, Vic Choudhry.
Vic is an exceptional tutor we have worked with personally many times over the years. While working with all types of students, he has demonstrated a remarkable ability to consistently elicit results that exceed expectations. His background speaks for itself:
Vic Choudhry is a certified, professional, and award-winning tutor in an array of subjects, including SAT, ACT, GRE, GED, Mathematics (Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus 1), Physics, Chemistry, English, and general study skills. With over 15 years of experience, Vic has worked with hundreds of students, both one-on-one and in classroom settings. Vic has a Bachelor of Science degree in physics with a minor in mathematics from Rutgers University and earned a master’s degree in physics from Illinois Institute of Technology. He is an elite instructor, tutor and mentor who received the “Tutor of the Year” award in 2018 from the National Tutoring Association. Vic was also awarded “Best of Thumbtack” (thumbtack.com) in 2015 and 2016. Vic previously worked as a chemist and physicist.
My toughest customer by far is my own teenage son, Aaron, who is a skeptical student on a good day.
(When will I ever use this? That's not due for weeks. Check out this YouTube video on the Right to Repair.)
Despite that, when I asked him how he felt about working with Vic, he said:
"Oh, he makes studying for the SAT more enjoyable than any other schoolwork I've done. He's the best."
