Why Should My Child Prep for the ACT and SAT?

  • Free Webinar with Dr. Mark Tarpley

    June 14, 2020 - 6:00 PM Pacific

Why Should My Child Prep for the ACT and SAT?  Two reasons.  First, these tests are most often the fastest and easiest way to earn scholarships and attend the school of your choice.  With a solid score on these tests, the admissions process can quickly become much simpler and the financial reward can be significant.  Secondly, these tests are not like the classroom.  The skills and strategies students develop in the classroom do not directly transfer to success on the ACT and SAT.  As such, score growth on these tests is established through developing a test day mindset through proper coaching for this unique testing environment.  So, how should your child meaningfully and responsibly prepare for these tests in order to increase scholarships and attend the school of his or her choice?  Join Dr. Mark Tarpley, a highly experienced educator who started prepping students for these tests over twenty years ago, as he offers practical and thoughtful guidance in relationship to preparing for these very important tests.  His webinar will also offer thoughts on the ACT and SAT in light of covid-19, and its impact on college and university admissions.

To sign up for the Webinar, email matthewgallatin@clrconline.com.

The CLRC will be offering Dr. Tarpley's ACT/SAT Prep Course this Fall.  To register, go to
