My son had private sessions with Ken Paille this past fall. Ken's sessions proved to be extremely valuable to Mike. Ken provided many useful test-taking and writing techniques and provided Mike with with the added confidence he needed to achieve his goal on the SAT administered this past November. Ken accurately assessed Mike's ability and areas for improvement at the end of each session, provided the necessary feedback, and assigned appropriate practice assignments to Mike to complete before the next session. Ken's weekly communication with Mike (copy to me) was most valuable. I anticipated and appreciated the progress report throughout the six-weeks. Mike appreciated Ken's intellect and coaching, and valued him as a person as well as an instructor. Mike’s scores greatly increased from the mock tests offered by Mindspire™ throughout the sessions, to the actual SAT that he took in November. We were all pleased and will highly recommend Mindspire™ (and Ken in particular) to Mike's peers. We thank you all!
