Island entrepreneur to help students ace exams
Tue, Jun 28th 2011 03:45 pm
High school students find themselves battling nationwide over spots at universities that years ago were not nearly as difficult to attend. And their weapon is their Scholastic Aptitude Test score. What's the best way for them to get their scores up? A recent Grand Island High School graduate and young entrepreneur hopes to provide students with an effective, cost-friendly answer. A current undergraduate at Carnegie Mellon University, Tsembelis has been chosen by SAT/ACT program Ivy Insiders to start a Grand Island branch of the service company. Ivy Insiders, which was started by undergraduate students like Tsembelis back in 2003, has become a nationally renowned program known for achieving significant test score improvements. The course will allow students to prepare for their SAT and ACT tests by giving them 38 hours of preparation over three weeks in an intense, focused setting free of distraction and optimized for learning retention. Students will additionally receive two tutoring sessions with one other student, as well as a study plan once the course is completed that is 100 percent customized for a particular student's needs. What separates Tsembelis from other SAT/ACT tutors though? She's a young student who recently underwent the stressful college application processes herself.
