Meet Treat Shepardson: Senior SAT, ACT, & SSAT Tutor.

As a veteran Top Score tutor with a wealth of experience helping students prepare for the SAT, ACT, and SSAT since 2018, I deeply understand what it takes to succeed on these critical exams. My teaching philosophy centers on student-driven learning and promotes critical thinking, close reading, and problem-solving skills far beyond the test.

I prioritize building deep relationships with my students, identifying the root cause of any disinterest, confusion, or apathy they may be experiencing, and providing the tools and guidance needed to overcome these obstacles. With a teaching style rooted in kindness, patience, and non-judgment, I work to instill a sense of personal responsibility and self-accountability in my students. By setting high expectations for effort, maturity, and critical thinking, I help students realize their full potential and achieve their goals.
