Saratoga High School, scored 1600 on the SAT.

My scores skyrocketed, from a lackluster 1490 to a mind-boggling 1600. Indeed, such a high score would be impossible without the professional aid of those at Thinktank. As such, I sincerely thank everyone at ThinkTank and encourage anybody that covets a high score to join ThinkTank.

Monta Vista High School, scored 1570 on the SAT.

I took the SAT Summer Boot Camp in 2013 before my junior year. It was extremely helpful in helping me achieve the score I wanted. I learned many tips and tricks. I became familiar with the types of questions that typically appear on the SAT. For instance, the preparation time spent on the critical reading section taught me how to deconstruct and analyze essay content within a minimum amount of time. The class also broadened my vocabulary, in both the critical reading and essay writing sections. ThinkTank’s SAT Summer Boot Camp really prepared me for the SAT!

San Mateo High School, scored 1580 on the SAT.

Before having gone to ThinkTank’s SAT Summer Boot Camp, I struggled to improve my SAT score. The Boot Camp exposed me to new ways to approach the SAT questions. Without Thinktank Learning’s help, I would not have been able to achieve the score I wanted – on my first try. I highly recommend that you take advantage of the valuable services ThinkTank’s SAT Boot Camp provides.

I had never attended anything like ThinkTank before and had no prior experience with the SAT. The SAT boot camp was an excellent introduction to the test and helped me quickly get accustomed to standardize testing. It undoubtedly played a large role in my obtaining of a high score, and I would definitely recommend the SAT Boot Camp to anyone willing to put in the effort to improve their score in a very short time.

Mission San Jose High School, scored 1600 on the SAT.

I enrolled in SAT I boot camp at ThinkTank Fremont center Summer of 2013. It was certainly a great help for me to understand how SAT works as the teachers there are professional and helpful. We went through a lot of practices and the classes were fun and practical. I liked the way teachers have in-depth discussions and interactive sessions in classes. The class drills and homework helped me re-organize the knowledge learned in school, and gave me guidance on what to concentrate more on. I was quite confident after the boot camp classes and I got a score of 1600 on the Dec 2013 test.

St. Francis High School, scored 1550 on the SAT.

The summer of my sophomore year, I attended SAT classes at ThinkTank Learning. Truth be told, when I first entered these classes, I thought that it would just be boring summer school. These classes were actually entertaining as our proctor would play vocabulary games and always make room for discussion. In my opinion, the most precious aspect of this class was the practice tests. ThinkTank provided a structured schedule of test taking that motivated me to improve my score each week. Overall, ThinkTank was essential to my high score. Thank you ThinkTank!

I would definitely recommend TTL’s college counseling service to my friends. It has definitely made the application process less stressful. My counselor, Johnny, was extremely helpful to me during the essay writing process. I was impressed that he took time to get to know me better. I truly appreciate the one-on-one time that he spent with me, brainstorming essay topics. He really helped me to see my own life experiences from a different perspective. My counselor’s knowledge and point of view was very helpful when we revised my writing. Thank you so much for the real time feedback and for your dedication to helping students.

Cornerstone Academy, scored 1510 on the SAT. Accepted to UC Berkeley.

I am currently a senior at Galileo Academy of Science and Technology. I remember exactly how I felt when I went to my first ThinkTank Learning seminar. I was so overwhelmed by all the information that they were feeding me. How could I possibly keep up my grades while simultaneously participate in extracurricular activities and study for the SATs and ACTs? ThinkTank helped me to focus on my strengths rather than stress out about everything else. I found the service helpful. I definitely liked my college admissions counselor; she was very easy to talk to and she always made me feel comfortable. The college application process was extremely stressful, but my consultant helped to alleviate that stress. I will be attending UC Berkeley in the fall!

During the start of senior year, just the idea of applying to college was a daunting task. However, with the help of Think Tank Learning, the process of applying to college was made much simpler. My counselor helped me answer all sorts of questions and carefully guided me through the intricate college application process; she also made my academic life easier as I could focus on schoolwork and my other extracurricular activities and not worry about my college application all the time. Furthermore, my counselor spent countless hours working personally with me to brainstorm ideas and revise my essays. Through Think Tank Learning, I became more confident in my writing and my application and learned how to present myself in the best way possible.

ThinkTank’s PCAP program was a novel experience for me. The system of brainstorming, writing, editing, and receiving feedback was tough to adjust to yet ultimately helped me create a more extensive essay than I could have written by myself. My counselor certainly helped me brainstorm and uncover new angles to take on the prompts as we dug up remnants of my childhood experiences I would not have thought of myself. He also stayed up very late helping me edit my essays, and him adding another point of view on my writing was generally helpful. He helped bring out more of myself and my voice in the essays, thereby humanizing my application.
