Alan Hsu

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.

Michelle-Li

Michelle Li

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!

Rick-Da

Rick Da

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.

Carlmont High School, scored 1550 on the SAT.

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.

Lillian Dong

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.

Jasmine Wong

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!

Agape Christian School, scored 1570 on the SAT. Accepted to MIT, Princeton.

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!

Daniel Hu

El Camino High, scored 1510 on the SAT. Accepted to Stanford University.

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.

St Cecilia School, scored 1570 on the SAT. Accepted to Dartmouth College.

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.

Lynbrook High, scored 1560 on the SAT.

I attended ThinkTank Learning from June until October 2013, during which I took the SAT Bootcamp and practice tests for English and Critical Reading. My English score greatly improved as I was taught the varying grammatical structures commonly found on the SAT. I was able to effectively apply them on the November test, on which I received an 800. My essay also greatly improved, as my teacher instructed me on the set formula I could use to succeed. I constantly received 10’s in the class, the highest he would give out, and an 11 on my actual test. Thanks to ThinkTank, I received a 1560 on my SAT!

Harker High, scored 1600 on the SAT.

Prior to attending my SAT training at ThinkTank, I hadn’t prepared for the SAT, so it was only practice I received prior to taking the actual test itself. However, it was more than enough for me to get the score I wanted. The instructors taught in a clear, easy-to-understand method and gave extremely helpful critical feedback on our practice tests and essays, which helped not only for the SAT itself but also in my regular writing skills. The bi-weekly tests that were administered provided regular practice, and helped us understand where we needed the most work to perfect our scores; I could see a clear improvement from each test to the next. I owe my success on the SAT exam to ThinkTank ‘s SAT Boot Camp, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who would like SAT training.

David Mai

Lowell High, scored 1570 on the SAT.

Although I knew the math part of the SAT very well, ThinkTank benefited me much in the writing section. They taught the grammar incredibly comprehensively, so comprehensively that when I just looked at the grammar section and read the questions I immediately catch the mistakes on my radar. However, I also think the many tests taken at ThinkTank helped me accommodate to the testing atmosphere and allowed me to better manage my time on the actual exam. As I got more practice my comprehension also strengthened, because I learned to read more effectively and quickly scan the pieces of information I needed to answer the questions. ThinkTank provides good classes that stimulate the testing environment and teaches the many basics of the exam.

Minda Lee

Saratoga High, scored 1540 on the SAT.

ThinkTank Learning helped me get a lot of practice with the SAT which helped me become more comfortable with the different types of questions. Practicing more also helped me finish the sections faster and that gave me more time to check my answers. ThinkTank Learning helped me improve the most on the critical reading and writing sections of the test. I learned different techniques for handling the critical reading passages and spotting errors on the grammar section that helped me answer questions a lot faster.

Amador Valley High School, scored 1560 on the SAT.

Though my time at ThinkTank Learning was brief, the skills I learned throughout the Summer Bootcamp Session became apparent as the weeks went by. What began as a mediocre score at best showed signs of improvement with every practice exam. My critical reading and writing scores dramatically increased, and although my math scores were relatively high ab initio, the instructor gave me practice and exposure to a wide range of question types, many of which appeared on the official SAT. The comfortable learning environment coupled with not only qualified, but also patient teachers set a path towards my success. Although it asks for hard work and diligence, the SAT Bootcamp at ThinkTank genuinely appealed to me and bolstered me up to the high scoring range.

Madeline Zheng

Mission San Jose High, scored 1590 on the SAT. Accepted to University of Southern California.

My main challenge was motivating myself to study and ThinkTank Learning really helped me with that issue by providing a very structured learning environment. They sat me down to take multiple practice exams and put my brain to work. I really enjoyed ThinkTank’s laid-back atmosphere compared to other testing centers. Their teachers definitely made our learning experience really enjoyable. One of the most memorable learning experiences during the course was when my critical reading teacher had us each put a post-it note on our forehead with a vocabulary word written on it. My classmates would then give us clues to the meaning of the word. After taking the class my SAT score jumped up about 100 points and I ended up scoring a 1590 on the official SAT test. I definitely recommend ThinkTank to a friend because it is one of the only places that can make such a boring test actually enjoyable.

Vista del Lago High School, scored 1570 on the SAT.

Wendy has always been interested in science and striving to push the boundaries of the universe as an aerospace or astronautical engineer. In order to guarantee a SAT score to leverage her dreams, Wendy enrolled at ThinkTank Learning.
