A high SAT score make students much more attractive to their target schools.


By supporting students to master the SAT, I help them cultivate the same habits that will make them successful in anything they do.


Students learn techniques of self-inquiry to find their real sources of inspiration in order to live a life of fulfillment, joy, and financial success.


A high SAT score is also the easiest way to get more scholarship money. That return on investment is huge!


I teach students how to study so that the information STICKS. This results in most students improving their GPA as a result of taking my courses as well.


I empower your child to improve their college resume by taking innovative action to solve some problem in their community as part of their college journey.


The journey from high school to college presents an incredible opportunity to clarify your child’s talents, interests, and purpose while cultivating the study techniques and success habits that lead your family towards fulfillment.

Full-Time SAT Tutor & Academic Coach

Thomas Meli

With over 20 years of education experience, 500+ hours of compassionate communication training, and 6 years of coaching experience, I use scientifically proven methodologies to inspire your child to do what it takes to get their target score.

I love the SAT. I think it is a beautiful exam that challenges students to develop their critical thinking skills, analytical abilities, reading and writing skills, and study habits that lay the foundation of their success for the rest of their lives.

I use empathy to help students accept their own skill level and learning history as a jump off point to going where they want to go. This supports a baseline self-confidence that allows them to believe they can improve and grow.

Through creating meaningful connections between what students already know and what they don’t know, they gradually increase their mastery of the material. When all of these factors are present, students experience the safety to enjoy their learning journey and the pride that comes from creating great results.
