Alumni Success Stories

We have taught students from cities around the world, including the United States, China, Saudi Arabia and Jordan, teaching the SAT or ACT online, or in person in Vancouver. After finding success with us, many parents send their younger siblings to us as well.

Educational consultants also look for the best test preparation to help their students get into top universities. Two prestigious consulting companies, IWE Consulting and Key Admissions, refer their students to us.

From Students and Parents

We have taught students from these preparatory schools:

  • St. George’s
  • Crofton House
  • York House
  • St. John’s
  • West Point Grey

  • St. Michael’s (Victoria)

Watch this amazed student as he gets his score back while in the Your Score Booster office.

This really has been a dream come true. I couldn’t have done it without your amazing tips and tricks on the SAT.

We have been so impressed with the SAT/ACT results that Your Score Booster has been able to achieve for their students. Their comprehensive textbooks, easy-to-understand video solutions, on-line support, and the exclusive PointsBooster™ Method of test preparation have led KEY to actively collaborate with YSB for SAT/ACT prep. Their classes and tutorials are best in class, and we have seen first hand the dramatic improvements they have been able to achieve with our students. Although the SAT/ACT is only one factor in the complicated application process to highly-selective universities, YSB helps maximize students’ potential in achieving the scores necessary to be competitive candidates.

Here are some quotes from e-mails from Your Score Booster alumni and their parents

My tutors were amazing. I feel as though I was a lot more prepared working with Your Score Booster in comparison to other SAT prep institutions.

With your grand bank of tests, materials and online tutorials, I could practice on my own. This gave me a lot of flexibility to plan and control my schedule when school work got heavy. Your Score Booster ultimately lessened my stress from school while I prepared for the ACT.

Thanks again for the classes this summer. It's highly unlikely that I would have gotten into Harvard without your help.

It was most definitely worthwhile for us to travel from Calgary to Vancouver to work with Your Score Booster. My daughter went in believing she would do well, and the results were phenomenal!!!

Compared to the two fairly well-known places I went to before, Your Score Booster definitely helped me the most and took the least time, too..

Your Score Booster really helped Richard iron down the techniques for SAT essay writing, such as budgeting his time, and developing a strong thesis. He was able to not only complete his writing within the given time in the actual exam but also achieved a score that we are very satisfied with.

We had left it rather late, but Richard Dalton was able to focus our son on what he needed to do to improve his writing score. In just two sessions he improved his score by 130 points -- definitely worth it.

Your Score Booster came highly recommended to our daughter from her friend who had been accepted to Harvard. Your Score Booster was able to help enormously with teaching our daughter the methodologies and the work effort needed to be her best on testing day. Our daughter received an early acceptance to Stanford University, which was no doubt assisted by her SAT result.

For those who aren't naturally gifted at taking standardized tests, Richard Dalton does a great job of assessing each student's strengths and needs to increase confidence and ultimately test scores. The level of care that he puts into each student is unparalleled and the results show it. I highly recommend Your Score Booster whether you're new to these tests or simply want to further boost your scores.

I was struggling with the critical reading and writing portions of the exam since English wasn't my first language. Through Richard's individualized coaching, I gained a comprehensive knowledge of the exam.... I don't think I would be where I am today without Richard.
