I highly recommend Top Score Education for SAT/ACT prep. Peter is an exceptional tutor. Peter instantly established a strong rapport with my 17-year-old son resulting in trust and credibility. They spent hours working together at my kitchen table and I was consistently impressed with Peter’s encyclopedic knowledge of the test and testing strategies, good humor, and encouragement. He genuinely cares about my son – and we are thrilled with the over 200 point improvement from when he took a practice SAT. Peter was everything I could not have asked for in a tutor – and more! My friends have used other companies, but comparing our experiences, I don’t think there is any program better than Top Score Education. There simply is no substitute for 1:1 tutoring. The convenience of Peter coming to our home was remarkable and Peter worked around unexpected sporting and social events. He was very communicative and kept me updated on my son’s progress. When my next child prepares for the SAT, Top Score Education will be the first call I make. I could not be happier that we chose Top Score Education to invest in our son’s academic preparation.

Peter, and the team at Top Score Education, communicated well with me as the parent and gave great updates on each lesson and throughout the process of my daughter's ACT preparation program. My daughter thought Peter did a great job breaking things down for her in terms of test-taking strategies as well as content-specific needs. He was very professional kind and patient with my daughter when she needed more support in certain areas.

Alex Chip and Top Score have been outstanding with all three of our kids. Their communication was excellent and there was nothing that could be improved. They really deserve 6 stars! Thank you Alex and thank you Top Score !

Thank you to Charlotte Halverson for helping prepare my daughter for her ACT. Charlotte helped my daughter build confidence and develop targeted testing knowledge and skills based on past test results! She was able to help her raise her score from first test to third test by 6 pts! (And 10 pts from the first practice test.) We couldn't have asked for better results!

My son had a great experience working with Top Score Education and Treat Shepardson on his SAP prep. Treat helped my son gain confidence in the test-taking process, format, and strategies necessary for success on the SAT!

Steven Feister was a fantastic tutor for my son's ACT prep. Steven was patient with my son and did an excellent job explaining the concepts my son needed to be successful. We have used Top Score for my son and daughter's test prep and enthusiastically recommend them to others for SAT or ACT prep!

My son worked with Peter Yao to prep for the ACT. Peter is amazing and really connected with my son and helped him zero in on the tweaks he needed to make and the areas he needed to focus on. My son ended up with a perfect 36 score. I can’t recommended Peter and Top Score enough. Both Jon and Peter were very professional and flexible. Highly recommend!!

Our experience with Top Score and Thais Menendez for SAT prep was fantastic, from beginning to end! Thais helped our daughter so much with tips and strategies and she was super patient with our initially reluctant kid. In the end, our daughter scored almost 300 points higher than her first test, and while this is probably not the norm, it certainly wouldn't have happened without Thais. She's wonderful to work with, approachable, and knows her stuff. We like Top Score so much that we are also using Marie to help with college essay writing. I can't say enough good things about them!

Santi Orozco was a superb ACT tutor! He worked collaboratively with my son to solve problems and identify areas of growth and strength. I strongly recommend Top Score Education for SAT or ACT tutoring and test prep!

Academic Tutoring: Master Subject Matter

Future scientists and math-averse students alike sharpen their skillsets and break through ceilings in our tailored Science Technology Engineering Math (STEM) programs. With a shared focus on the left and right cerebral hemispheres, we also provide growth and guidance to reluctant historians or young writers who emphasize the “human” in Humanities.

Skills-Based Learning: Go Beyond the Classroom

Students of all levels map their superhuman journeys through project-based learning programs like Project Build, where future executives develop organization and leadership, and Infinity Math, where potential city planners explore problem-solving strategies through critical thinking.

The Written Word program helps students discover their voice while strengthening their foundations of literacy and Study Skills Boost empowers students’ organization and self-advocacy skills.

Why Top Score?


I started Top Score Education in 2004 as an antidote to “band-aid tutoring”—rather than simply teach test tricks, the goal was to inspire students to alter the way they learn, read, write, and problem-solve. Our company shield features the letter Delta representing change, and a staircase emblemizing ascension. We energize students to embrace these symbols as catalysts for higher scores, greater confidence, and empowering self-advocacy. Our students win debate tournaments, rock robotic competitions, achieve perfect SAT/ACT scores, and text us Nietzsche jokes. Former students even return to teach with us.

We remain small and exclusively hire career educators for whom personalization is not a goal, but a mandate. We are advocates of our students, friends of our families, and guides in an education landscape that can be tough to navigate.

I invite you to join the Top Score Education family and gain a trusted and true partnership.
