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 Educational Consultants
We sincerely thank Your Score Booster for helping our students to improve their SAT and ACT scores and increasing their confidence so that we as an education consultancy can better help our students to achieve their educational goals. We will definitely continue sending our students to Your Score Booster!Maria Wang, director, IWE Study
Your Score Booster's comprehensive textbooks, easy-to-understand video solutions, on-line support, and the exclusive PointsBooster® Method of test preparation have led to KEY actively collaborate with Your Score Booster 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, Your Score Booster helps maximize students’ potential in achieving the scores necessary to be competitive candidates.Key Admissions

YSB helped me improved a lot for the SAT. The reading techniques and elimination strategy made combatting the exam less stressful and much easier.Annabelle Jiang, 1540
With your grand bank of tests, materials, tutorials online, etc., I can practice a lot on my own and if I have something I don't get, then I can ask the tutor. This gives us a lot of flexibility to plan and control our schedule when school work gets heavy. Since I excel at planning my own schedule (I set up everything), using Your Score Booster ultimately lessened my stress from school while preparing for the ACT.Wenyang (Sam) Shen, NYU Stern, ACT: 34
Your Score Booster came highly recommended to our daughter from her friend who had been accepted to Harvard.

Our daughter received an early acceptance to Stanford University, which was no doubt assisted by her SAT result.Leila Bell-Irving (Vancouver , Dunbar)
I am absolutely thrilled to be attending Princeton this fall. A huge thank you to Your Score Booster for helping me reach my goals.Austin Wang, 1520

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.Benedict Leung, St. George's School, Duke University
