Learn what Khan Academy isn’t teaching you – effective strategies to maximize your scores.

We’re not saying Khan doesn’t do a good job — it is a solid place to improve your math foundation, and if you want someone to read to you, we suppose watching the reading videos might be diverting — but if you want great scores, AND you don’t have a lot of time, you need great strategies for taking the test and insight into why you are having trouble getting the scores you want.

It is time for you to consult a professional.  Someone who will discuss best practices for test taking with you; someone who will listen to you and your particular challenges.  Someone who will give you strategic preparation for superlative results.  That someone is Kate Dalby.
