"My two oldest sons have attended the Colloquium Test Prep Course for the SAT for four years now, and with another son in the 6th grade, as a family we will attend for a total of nine years! Lisa Muehle provides dynamic instruction in a clear and comprehensive style. Not only have my sons increased their test taking abilities, their grades in their Honors English and Honors math classes continue to grow stronger. My sons are enthusiastic about the course and always come away with valuable instruction. Lisa's methods have given my sons the confidence they need to succeed on the SAT. I highly recommend Lisa Muehle's instruction to students looking to better their SAT scores."

With the small group setting and up-to-date materials on the SAT subjects and practice tests, our children are able to learn, practice and develop the critical skills necessary to be successful in taking the SAT test and in applying this knowledge in other academic areas as well."
