"I am so thankful for the programs that Dr. Sampath put together. By implementing his strategies, I was able to increase each ACT test category 4 to 10 points. You can tell he is truly invested in his motivated students. He gives you all the resources necessary to succeed. I would have never thought I could accomplish what I have so far, and it is all thanks to Dr. Sampath."

"Hi!

We received ACT scores. He received 35 on Math and 36 on the other three sections."

--Dublin Jerome (Rising Senior) Parent


"Hi Dr. Sampath!

How are you doing? I wanted to let you know that we got my son's scores! This was his first attempt after taking the boot camp in May/early June. This was with completing all English drills and a majority of the math in the short two week period. He has been studying since taking the test on June 8th, using the guide you provided to me. Thank you so much for your guidance, support, and structured approach. He knows there is still a lot of hard work ahead.

Thank you Dr. Sampath!"--Upper Arlington (Rising Junior) Parent


"Hi Dr. Sampath,

I just wanted to connect about my daughter and her recent score on the June ACT.

As you know, she did 1-1 sessions with you in preparation for the February test and scored a composite score of 34 (Eng-36, math-33, reading-36, and science-31). It wasn't quite her goal but she was determined to possibly “superscore” a 35 on the June test.

We just got her scores for the June test and she got a 35 composite (Eng-35, math-35, reading-36, and science-34). So proud of her!!!

Looking back at the entire process, you had many good things to help with studying, especially the cheat sheets! But you also had many good insights about the testing process in general.

When she returned to studying for the ACT after finishing her junior year, she already had a good base from her prep. for the February test. But now she was finished with school and a lot of stress was gone, and she could just focus on the upcoming ACT test.

I mention this because I've read your newsletters telling parents to get their students started early so that maybe they can test before the junior school year starts. Please keep telling parents that!!!

Although I feel she tried to get rest before the February test, I know she was still focused on so many other things that perhaps the ACT couldn't be her 100% focus. And she was tired- "fatigue" as I think you mentioned more than a few times. I believe she did better this time around, in part, because she was less stressed.

I also want to mention that she had been a little stressed about the science section the first time around. Her scores on the practice tests were inconsistent and then ultimately she did not perform that well on the Feb. science section.

To try and alleviate some of her angst, I got her the ACT science practice book. She did most, if not all the questions in the book. This additional practice put her at ease going into the June test and her score reflected that.

Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for all your insights in helping us navigate her ACT journey."

--Bishop Watterson (Rising Senior) Parent


"Dear Dr. Sampath,

I hope this email finds you well. I took the SAT on June 1st and ended up getting a 1530 on my first attempt (Reading and Writing 750, Math 780) which is equivalent to a 35. Your ACT cheat sheet was very helpful to my prep for that exam! Thank you!

Sincerely,"

--Olentangy Berlin Rising Senior


"My daughter received a 1420 (110-point increase from last test). Scored 740 Math and 680 English! We are still digesting the information and determining if she will take the ACT or not. She finished her final and got the scores and out the door to the pool!

Thank you for all your help and guidance through this process!"

--Olentangy Liberty (Rising Senior) Parent


"Dear Dr Sampath,

We are very pleased to inform you that our son got into OSU Biomedical Science, UNC Chapel Hill, University of Michigan, and Washington University. He chose OSU BMS as it was his first choice and also because he got the Morrill Scholarship.

He attended your boot camp summer before junior year and also PSAT/SAT coaching. He applied the techniques you taught him which helped him secure a near-perfect score on ACT and PSAT.

I feel that you listen, observe and help students in a very unique way that they value your input and that gets results. Many thanks to you for that.

Proud Parent. 🙏"

--New Albany (Senior) Parent


"Hello Dr. Sampath,

Hope you are doing well!

We wanted to share the good news with you that our daughter got into the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin and the highly selective (~180 seats) Canfield Business Honors Program.

We appreciate your timely help with her SAT/ACT coaching and the words of encouragement to get more rest and take care of herself. After your coaching, she felt confident taking the ACT (after a last minute switch from SAT :-)) and scored a 35.

We hope that more students benefit from your excellent coaching program. We continue to share your contact through our network.

Thank you! We appreciate your support and guidance in helping her get into her dream program."

--Round Rock, TX (Senior) Parent


"Dr. Sampath,

Hello and how are you? I hope well!

We wanted to share the wonderful news that our daughter was accepted and has committed to Brown University! (She also was choosing between Dartmouth and OSU honors.)

We know that her high ACT score and submitting it had to have helped her cause. She's the first Grandview student to get into an Ivy in many years!

Thank you for having your many programs to help her with her standardized testing. We're so glad we found out about you from the Grandview library!

One of our daughter's best friends and her family reached out about what test prep our daughter had taken, and we most definitely recommended you.

Thank you again,"

--Grandview Heights (Senior) Parent


"Hello Dr. Sampath,

I hope this email finds you well! I wanted to let you know that I accepted an admission offer from Purdue University, including the merit-based Presidential Scholarship from the college. Thank you so much for the advice and help you provided throughout the college preparation process!

Thanks!"

--Cornerstone Christian Academy Senior


"Dr. Sampath,

With college decision season behind us, we have some great news to share. My daughter got accepted into MIT, Caltech and Georgia Tech for Aerospace Engineering.

I wanted to thank you for guiding her so accurately to focus on boosting her profile instead of polishing test scores. Since then, she focused on research at a couple of labs at OSU, teaching robotics, science olympiad, and going to Nationals with the New Albany Rocketry Club. Due to these activities, she was able to generate a lot of impactful experiences that she could talk about in her essays, which were the bulk of her college apps (vs. one perfect number).

Thank you for your excellent guidance once again.

Regards,"

--New Albany (Senior) Parent


"Hi Dr. Sampath,

I wanted to let you know that I am happy with my score! I got a 1470, 740 English and 730 math. My previous score was 1330. I think I can do better on math so am mainly working on that before the April test at school.

I am working through all the problems in the workbook again. I got through them once but didn't have time to go through them multiple times and really master them. I am also reviewing the flash cards.

I really can't remember the specific topics that I had problems with. I am hoping that by working through more problems I will be able to get through the math section more quickly. I will let you know if I have any questions as I am reviewing everything.

Thank you for your help,"

--New Albany Junior


"Hello Dr. Sampath,

I wanted to give you an update on my daughter's college admissions.

She had several large SEC schools on her list, a few private schools and Georgia Tech. She was admitted to everywhere except Georgia Tech. She has been awarded scholarships to bring all of the out of state schools and private schools like Baylor and TCU down to at or below state school costs. Her biggest accomplishment in the admissions process was getting accepted into the University of Texas Computer Science department. She's still narrowing down her options to make her final decision but I wanted to thank you for your time and support with her. It made a distinct difference for her and has given her many great options.

Thanks,"

--Claudia Taylor Johnson, TX (Senior) Parent


"Hi Dr. Sampath,

Hope you’re well!

I wanted to tell you that I’ve finally achieved my target score. I got a 35!

Here is a list of practices that I found most helpful:

  • Making a list of errors for Math and Science (the only way to improve on practice tests was to keep these errors in mind and be cautious)
  • Memorizing the math cheat sheet (I couldn’t have taken the math section without it)
  • Pacing well for the Reading and Science sections
  • Working on stamina (both by sleeping well and by taking enough practice tests to get comfortable)

ACT report card from a student showing latest test and superscores.

Thank you for all your support this year; I cannot begin to express how much you helped me."

--New Albany Junior


"We attended a free ACT Crash Course prior to committing to 1:1 tutoring with Dr. Sampath. We heard about his free parent webinars from friends whose older child participated in private tutoring.

Dr. Sampath was able to structure tutoring in a way our son needed during the summer months (who wants to listen to their parents tell them to go to bed early, miss time with friends and even miss high school sports events?!). 1:1 tutoring and focused training advice allowed our son to focus on studying and be consistent with it. Our son improved his score by 3 points which was critical in obtaining a Letter of Assurance and Appointment to the US Air Force Academy.

Thank you to Dr. Sampath!"

--Bishop Hartley (Senior) Parent


"Good morning Dr. Sampath!

Hope you are doing well! My daughter and I just wanted to share some good news with you- late last night she was notified by Ohio State University that she has been accepted to the Main Campus for fall 2024! We are overjoyed with this news and relieved that the college acceptance process is now over.

We wanted to thank you again for all the tutoring sessions last school year for Algebra 2 and also for ACT prep. My daughter mentioned multiple times that the way you explain things "just makes sense." Also, your ACT videos are invaluable. I know she would not have been so successful with her ACT score (29) if she hadn't studied so hard, followed your suggestions, and worked through your workbooks and videos. We have recommended your tutoring and ACT prep classes to everyone we know.

Wishing you and your family a happy holiday season!"

--Upper Arlington (Senior) Parent


[Note: This student started at 21 and improved by 5 points twice on consecutive tests.]

"Hi Dr. Sampath,

I got my ACT scores back today and I just thought I would let you know what I got by myself. I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to be the best I could and for all the tips and practice you gave me. I earned a 31, which is 4 points higher than what I originally aimed to achieve. So again, thank you for pushing me towards that.

Here are my scores:

Thanks,

"Hello Dr. Sampath.

Just wanted to let you know - My son got his ACT score today and he scored overall 35 (36 Math, 36 Reading, 35 science and 34 English). He seemed a little disappointed with the 34 and very happy with 36 in Math without a calculator and overall he seems happy with it.

Thank you for all the tips and pointers you have equipped them with during the boot camp. My gratitude for all that you have done for them.

Thanks again and best regards,"

--New Albany (Rising Junior) Parent


"Dear Dr Sampath,

Just letting you know that my son is a confirmed National Merit Semifinalist. There was a recognition ceremony for the award at Dublin Jerome. We are very happy that he tutored with you. Thank you for all the advice.

With regards,"

"Hi Dr Sampath! I just wanted to let you know that my son got a 36 on the ACT!

Thank you so much for all of your support!"

--Worthington Kilbourne (Junior) Parent

Additional details from the parent:

"As you know, he took full advantage of your services and embraced your advice. Leading up to the exam he:

  • attended your ACT crash course [Note: This student had previously attended our SAT-PSAT Boot Camp.]
  • used your ACT handbook
  • attended your private tutoring to zero in on the most challenging areas
  • completed 3 practice tests the weeks leading up to the exam and then worked on the questions he missed in between each practice test
  • took the practice tests early in the morning on weekends with timer to simulate the actual environment
  • went to bed at 9:30 most nights leading up to the test

All of these activities helped him to gain confidence and remove some of the uncertainty.

Parent tip: Be sure to drive your student to the exam!"


"Dr. Sampath:

It was a fun morning in our house! Our daughter found out she got a 1520 on her very first try at the SAT, including an 800 in math! She was so excited and relieved! It's the first time in all her practice tests that she aced the math portion. There's no question in our minds that a great deal of her success came down to her commitment to the PrepAccelerator program and the personal tutoring and guidance she received from you. We're hopeful she'll now have access to some of her first-choice schools. Thank you again. Hopefully it's been a great day hearing about all your students' successes!"

"Good afternoon Dr. Sampath,

Below are my daughter's scores. She has a 31 superscore now! She's very excited!! For this test she focused on Science and English and didn't really try on the other sections so she scored lower there, but she went from her first test in science, a 25 to a 34!!! For English she went from a 22 to a 28!

First is the superscore then second is the July test.

Thank you so much for all of your help and coaching, it definitely made a BIG difference!

Best,"

Hope you are doing well! I took the July 15th ACT and got my scores back yesterday. My composite score was a 35 (35 Math, 35 English, 35 Science, 33 Reading).

I am not planning to take the SAT or ACT again, and will be moving forward to working on my college applications.

Thank you so much for all of your help this past year. I definitely couldn’t have done it without your guidance and resources.

Thanks,"

As you know, we subscribed to your online boot camp when school ended in May and my daughter devoted 8-10 hours a day from May 25 right up until the evening of June 9. She followed the sleep schedule and said goodbye to all distractions during study time. She accomplished what she set out to do.

Please tell your student families that with hard work and dedication they can do it too!

Thanks so much for your 1:1 tutoring sessions and your online resources. Without them, we wouldn't have seen this level of success.

Hope you have a great summer!

Here's a picture of the email she received."

 

UPDATE: "Even her writing score increased-- last October's score was a 6 and it increased to an 8 in June. Your writing tips were so helpful and she practiced them as well! So great news all around!

Hope you have a great day!"

--Upper Arlington (Rising Senior) Parent


"Hi Dr. Sampath,

Hope you are doing well since we last spoke. I wanted to let you know that my daughter has continued to improve her ACT scores. She was able to get her English up to a 34 and her Reading a 35. Her highest Science is 32 and her highest math is 31. She thinks your drills and content for English and Reading were especially beneficial in raising her scores. She may take the ACT one more time this summer to see if she can get her math up a couple more points.

Thank you!"

--Upper Arlington (Junior) Parent


"Dr. Sampath,

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you again for your PrepAccelerator courses.

Our son (junior at Bishop Watterson) found your boot camp to be very helpful & his February ACT test scores definitely reflect that! His composite score was a 33 - 32 math, 30 science, 35 English, & 33 Reading.

Thanks again!!"

--Bishop Watterson (Junior) Parent


"Hello Dr. Sampath,

I wanted to let you know how much your ACT boot camp helped my son. The first time he took the test he received a 26 in math and was extremely disappointed. But, after taking your course, and memorizing the recommended formulas and completing the drills, he improved his score to a 34! I will be sure to recommend your classes to others.

Thank you!"

"Dr. Sampath,

Good morning. We wanted to let you know that our daughter's school ACT testing scores came in, and she did very well.

S 36, M 35, R 35, E 35, so a composite of 35! One more section point, and she would have gotten a 36!

We're very proud of her, and we know she has been studying hard to earn the scores she received. Thank you for your prep classes, as that is a definite factor in how well she scored!

She's definitely getting some chocolate today! 😀"

[Note: Ohio's National Merit Selection Index cutoff was 216.]

"Hello Dr. Sampath.

My son did well on the PSAT exam I think. You may know better what his score means. He got a score of 224 and overall was 1500 - lost the points in the English portion.

Thanks again for your support and guidance to him in the ACT boot camp session."

"Dr. Sampath,

Hi! I just wanted to let you know that my son's ACT test results were released today. He earned a 35 in math and a 35 in English, which raised his composite score to 35! I can't thank you enough for tutoring him. Your tutoring style and worksheets were exactly what he needed and are the only reason he was able to improve so much and so quickly. As a reminder, he originally scored 30 in math and 27 in English. The 8-point improvement in English was completely beyond our expectations! He is very pleased with the results and sends his thanks as well. As a bonus, he is finding the grammar rules to be very useful as he writes his college essays. He also is enjoying the latest addition to his wardrobe--an analog watch!"

--New Albany (Senior) Parent


"Hello Dr Sampath,

Just wanted to thank you for your coaching / guidance for my son. He took the ACT this month and got a 36 score 🙂

He's a 10th grader at Kilbourne, so now that's one less thing to worry about for the next 2 years."

--Worthington Kilbourne (Sophomore) Parent

"I was referred to Dr. Sampath by another DeSales parent who just raved about him. I initially reached out for one on one coaching for my daughter but he advised the less expensive option of the group course would probably fit her best after we discussed current and target scores. She attended the two day ACT prep course via Zoom with other students. I cannot stress enough the amount of additional information Dr. Sampath has - his hints and tips were so helpful. Having access to so many prior tests was also helpful. My daughter put in the work and raised her score from a 23 to a 28 in five weeks. We were beyond thrilled! I can 100% say Dr. Sampath is amazing at what he does and I will recommend him to absolutely anyone looking to up their ACT score. He is also super friendly and genuinely cares about his students."

--Saint Francis DeSales (Senior) Parent


"Dear Dr. Sampath,

I've been hoping that I will have the opportunity to write this email since I got out of the ACT on July 16th. After finishing the test my usual exhaustion wasn't present. Instead I finished the test and thought to myself, "I hope in 10 days I can write an email to Dr. Sampath thanking him after I receive my score". Ten days later I'm sitting here writing this email after opening my scores, and I just wanted to say thank you. I appreciate all the hours we spent together going over ACT materials and strategies, and all your advice, whether it was about the ACT itself or fixing my sleeping habits, it truly proved beneficial. I was able to achieve a composite score of 33 on this exam, and my superscore is now a 34. Thank you for having the confidence in me that I could reach these scores when I sometimes didn't.

I am content with my score, however what I am most proud of is my score on math. I was able to raise my math to a 33 (from the highest it ever was before a 28). I reworked the Hard Math Package multiple times, and the Math Drills from the boot camp thoroughly. Additionally, I had the math cheat sheet memorized completely. After taking this past exam I know for a fact how helpful every single one of the materials you provided me with was. The most valuable advice, however, wasn't about the ACT itself, it was about sleep. As much as I dreaded going to bed so early, I believe it made a serious impact. Changing my sleep habits for the ACT has made me reconsider changing my sleep habits going forward. I was able to complete each section with leftover time, and wasn't exhausted after finishing the test (compared to previous times). In all, I appreciate everything, and thank you.

Below I have attached a screenshot of my score report for the July 2022 ACT and my superscore as well.

Again, thank you."

"Just wanted to give you my daughter's score from ACT [2 weeks after the boot camp].

She started at about a 29 on practice tests."

"We signed our daughter up for the April test since she has a busy summer planned and just in case she was sick or something for the March school test. She did a couple reading practices in between, but didn't really study much more."

--Thomas Worthington (Junior) Parent


"Dr. Sampath,

I wanted to thank you for your excellent guidance to my daughter the week prior to the April ACT. She scored a 35 on her first attempt. With such a short amount of time for preparation, I saw her going through a range of emotions as she tested herself each day, and your spot-on evaluation of her test results each day as well as the reassuring and practical suggestions to fine-tune the strategy went a long way in boosting her confidence day-by-day. Even though you coached her only for reading, I sincerely believe that the fundamental techniques she picked up from you were largely responsible for improving her science score as well. In fact, I think she will continue to reap its benefits throughout school and college. Thank you for such close monitoring and personal attention."

--New Albany (Sophomore) Parent

--Parent of (Junior) Homeschooler


"Hi Dr. Sampath,

My daughter raised her composite score by three points to a 29! (Missed a 30 by only one more point on any section... a 29.25 average overall.) Her goal was to get to a 28 or better to be in the range of last year’s median acceptance scores for some schools where she plans to apply this fall, so she was happy with this result.

Thanks for all your support of her in this process, both in knowledge and strategy, and in helping build her confidence about her ability to reach the goal. Together those made all the difference.  I am certain that if we had engaged your assistance sooner, she would have been well into the 30’s."

--Olentangy Berlin (Senior) Parent


"Dr Sampath,

We just got our son's ACT scores - he improved across the board to earn a composite score of 29 (vs 26 previously).

We also got his scores from the SAT a few weeks ago - he scored a composite 1350, which we are extremely happy about - your advice and guidance was excellent around taking the SAT.

Once again, thank you for your work with our son and your advice - we will now focus on applications with much better confidence around his target schools!"

--Worthington Kilbourne Parent


"Hi Dr. Sampath,

Scores from the August SAT were just released and I am very happy to say that I got a 1500! I am so thrilled to have finally reached my target score. Your boot camp and private tutoring sessions helped me immensely in reaching this score, and I cannot thank you enough for all the useful tips and encouragement you gave me. Being the night owl I am, I was reluctant to follow your advice on sleep at first, but making a conscious effort to get 8 hours of sleep helped me a lot with focus on test day. It feels great to know that I am finally done with the SAT and that I can just focus on college applications and enjoying my senior year. Thanks once again for everything Dr. Sampath!"

--Dublin Jerome Senior


"Hello Dr. Sampath,

My son received his scores:
English 34
Math 35
Reading 31
Science 36
Composite 34
Writing 10

We are very happy since this was his first attempt and he is a rising junior. We are very pleased with his scores and are thankful for your tutoring sessions. He found them to be most helpful and informative."

--Dayton, OH, Parent


"Dr. Sampath tutored our daughter in math, reading, and science after she attended his ACT Crash Course. We cannot recommend Dr. Sampath enough. He was direct and encouraging and put our daughter at ease while also holding her accountable to put in the work necessary to succeed. His targeted instruction and test-taking tips resulted in our daughter scoring a 35 on her first attempt taking the ACT."

--Olentangy Liberty (Junior) Parent


"Hi Dr. Sampath,

I just wanted to follow-up and thank you for your help for my daughter in her ACT preparation. She met her target score of 28 after working with you and working hard for the month before the test.

The quality of your tutoring far exceeds anything we have seen from other providers and at reasonable cost. You are wonderful at connecting with the students in a manner that makes them listen and take note.

While I know my daughter worked very hard studying and practicing the concepts you shared with her, you played a key role in her success.

Thanks again for your help!"

--Dublin Scioto Parent


"Dr. Sampath,

My son has reached his target score, and we are overjoyed! Per your advice in boot camps, he took a few timed tests, and we analyzed the mistakes he was making. We helped him customize a study plan addressing the weaknesses. Then he studied it a whole bunch.

Feb ACT-
32 score (33 stem score)
Math 31
English 30
Reading 30
Science 35

Previous composite scores were 27 and 28. English was consistently a 25. He raised his score 5-6 points in some areas.

Oh yes we are happy especially since he is now done with it and is a Junior. We are confident with over 4.0 GPA he will be in good shape for college applications.

Thank you so much for your devotion to your business and the kids! We really appreciated the class offering online and keeping them moving during Covid. My second son will likely show up in your class in a year or so. Until then- thank you!!!"

--Olentangy Berlin Parent


"Dear Dr. Sam,

I just wanted to send you a letter of appreciation for all of your help in J's ACT preparation. He first met you at one of your free lectures at Grandview Library. He absolutely loved your class and immediately asked me if he could attend one of your boot camps. I signed him up for your January class and he devoured every word you taught him. He came out of each class completely exhausted and drained but so excited for all of the tips that you provided. He was scheduled to take the exam in April, but the test was canceled due to COVID. His test was subsequently canceled in July, September and early October. He used his free time to take practice tests, memorize your "cheat sheet" and go over math flashcards. He was worried that he was going to forget all that you had taught him but he eventually sat for the exam at the end of October and got an amazing score of 32. While he was happy with his results, he really wanted to improve the areas where he didn't perform as well-English and the statistics portion of math. I scheduled 2 one-hour private Skype sessions in early December with you and J felt like it was very informative and helpful. Despite hundreds of December 12th test cancellations, he was able to take the test for a second time. We just found out that he scored a 35 overall... a 6-point improvement in English and a perfect score in math. We are SO incredibly thankful for all of your encouragement, advice and endless helpful tips. We will be recommending you to every one of J's friends!! Enjoy the holidays and I will be contacting you again in a few years for my daughter!!!"

"Hello Dr Sam,

I took your bootcamp last year in preparation for the February ACT. I took the ACT February 2020 and got a respectable score. However, that summer I decided to retake it. I studied using material that I saved from the bootcamp and also took a crash course as a refresher. I took the ACT (with writing) for the final time October 2020 and scored a 33: Eng-30, Math-32, Read-35, Sci-34 and Writing-8. Thank you very much for your time and knowledge!

I also recently applied and was accepted to Penn State! Thank you again."

--Tree Of Life Christian Schools Senior


"Hello Dr. Sam,

I recently received my scores from the September 12th ACT. I know you have a very busy schedule, but I wanted to thank you for all that you've done. In December 2019, I took my first ACT and received a 23. I took 2 ACTs in February and got a 26 on both -- one of them included a 21 in Reading.

Due to COVID-19, my ACTs in April and July were canceled. As a rising senior, the September exam was one of the last chances I had for Early Action deadlines.

Despite all of that, I'm very happy to inform you that I got a 33 (33 English, 31 Math, 34 Reading, and 33 Science) on the September ACT. I'm a little annoyed at the 33 in English, but I'm satisfied with my Composite score.

I cannot thank you enough for your help in the boot camps and the 1-on-1 sessions. Those two, along with the handbook, helped me tremendously.

Again, thank you for all that you've done, not just for me, but for all the students amidst this pandemic.

Best,"

Update (1 month later)

"Hello Dr. Sam,

I hope you're doing well. Just thought I'd give you an update on how I'm doing. A few days ago, I submitted my Purdue Early Action application. I'm currently working on OSU and UC's application. It feels good to submit the apps knowing I have a good ACT score."

Update (2 months later)

"Hi Dr. Sam,
I hope you're doing well. I wanted to give you an update about the college admissions process. 2 hours ago, I got an email from OSU telling me that I've been accepted! It's safe to say that this would not have been possible without your ACT Bootcamp and drills. I can't thank you enough!!"
--Olentangy Junior

"I'm a junior at Olentangy High School. I took the ACT for the first time last year, and I got a composite score of 30 consisting of a 24 in English, 28 in reading, 34 in math, and 33 in science. Needless to say, I was horrified by my English score. So I took some 1-1 hours with Dr. Sampath, and he went through all the grammar rules with me, walked me through practice tests, and gave me numerous tips on how to get through each section efficiently. I now have a composite score of 34! I was able to improve my English score by 10 points and my reading score by 7 points thanks to Dr. Sampath's guidance. I will be retaking the ACT soon in hopes of scoring even higher."

--Olentangy Junior


"Hey Dr. Sam!

I wanted to extend a most grateful thank you for the comprehensive advice your course provided. I studied all the practice material that you gave my classmates and I from Tree of Life Christian School (in November or December I believe), and it truly gave me the edge I needed over the test. I increased my 30 composite score to a 32 following your boot camp, and in my most recent take, the July test, I continued to review your tips and tricks and increased my score to a 35.25 composite. Thanks for everything, I appreciate it more than you could know!"

--Tree Of Life Christian Schools Senior


"Hello, Dr. Sampath,

I know this thank you note is a bit overdue since I got my ACT score a while ago, but now that I'm starting to apply for college, I'm really appreciating all the help you gave me at the library workshop that I attended. The tips from that workshop brought my score up from a 30 on my practice ACT to a 34 when I took it in February. Now that I'm going into my senior year, I'm so happy to have the pressure of the ACT lifted off my shoulders (although now I couldn't retake it even if I wanted to). So I just wanted to thank you so much for being generous enough to take the time to share your knowledge with us, and to let you know that it opened lots of new possibilities for me.

Thank you again,"

--Upper Arlington Senior


"Dr. Sampath,

I just wanted to thank you for offering your time and services last night for the ACT Crash Course.  My daughter felt it was VERY helpful, and provided her strategies/techniques to implement as she prepares for the ACT.  She even thanked me for registering her!! The info provided for the parents was also helpful.  

It is obvious that you are dedicated to helping the students and for that, I am truly grateful.

With appreciation,"

--Dublin Coffman Parent

"Thank you for the kind words about my daughter. Although her time with you was cut short due to the test schedule, the 5 weeks that she worked with you brought her score on the ACT up from a 28 to a 32!!!! That’s a tremendous improvement! Not only that, her science score went from a 23 to a 33!!! I believe that your direct and lighthearted way with the children really allowed her to be comfortable and comforted by you.

Allow me to also say that we paid $3,000 to a company that gets kids ready for college: tutoring and guiding them. She had taken the ACT 3 times (under their tutelage) and with each attempt her score stayed at a 28.

I know in my heart that you made ALL THE DIFFERENCE and I cannot thank you enough!

Lastly, of 9 schools that she applied to, she was accepted into 8 and offered several merit based scholarships!

My daughter has decided on The University of Southern California or USC, and will be a Trojan this fall! Fight on!!

My youngest will begin working with you this summer!!!

My best,"

--Jonathan Alder Parent


"I want to thank Dr. Sampath for everything he has done to get me my goal score on the ACT. Before going to Dr. Sampath, I would get low 20's on the reading and science sections. I would never be able to finish the sections without having to put random answers for the last passage; I just was not fast enough. I also went to two other tutors, but nothing seemed to work. However, this changed after I went to Dr. Sampath. His strategies allowed me to go from my 27 to a 30. His strategies are not like any of the other tutors I went to and I know that without him, I would have never been able to get my score. He also told me things I should do outside of the tutoring sessions to have the best chance of getting my score. Because of him, I will be attending The Ohio State University in the fall! I highly recommend him to anyone who is dedicated to getting a good score on their standardized testing."

--New Albany Senior


"Dr Sampath:

I wanted to drop you a note and let you know that my daughter received her ACT scores a few days ago. If you’ll remember, she attends Dublin Coffman High School, and she participated in your boot camp a few months ago in the Polaris area. I am happy to report that she got a 35 on the exam, which I believe places her in the top 1% of all test takers. Amazing!

While your boot camp was undoubtedly instrumental in her success, I wanted to also thank you so much for taking time outside of the boot camp to answer our questions and discuss strategies specific to her situation. If you will remember, we discussed that she should take the ACT exam early, with the thought that she could, if need be, just retake a subsection or two over in September to further improve her score. You also encouraged her to complete the writing section, which she did. The path you outlined and the advice you gave were critically important to her success, and have helped cement a bright future for her. For that, I can’t thank you enough!

Kind regards."

--Dublin Coffman Parent


"On the last Saturday before her junior year, our daughter attended Dr. Sampath’s free one-day ACT Crash Course at one of the Worthington Libraries. I felt bad making her spend a beautiful Saturday – her last Saturday of summer freedom! – indoors. About two hours after I dropped her off, I received – UNPROMPTED – a text from her: “This guy is awesome! He really knows what he’s talking about and he makes it fun!!”

Our daughter went on to attend Dr. Sampath’s two-day boot camp that was offered through her school later that year, as well as a handful of one-on-one tutoring sessions with him for math. It all paid off! Her ACT composite score increased from a stubborn 28 to a 32 (“33 if you superscore, Mom,” as she reminded me a few times.) As a senior, she was awarded some substantial academic merit scholarships early in the application process.

From a parental perspective, I could not have been more pleased. Dr. Sampath was easy to work with. His one-on-one sessions were customized to our daughter’s needs and he provided ample reference materials for her to continue to work from on her own. He also emphasized the need to get adequate rest leading up to the exam day, which is exactly what we parents tell our kids. But, of course, they actually listen when they hear it from somebody else! It’s obvious that Dr. Sampath truly wants to help kids succeed. He called us after scores were released each time to encourage and/or congratulate.

I’m so glad to have the opportunity to provide this formal testimonial. I recommend Dr. Sampath whenever I have the opportunity to do so because, as my daughter stated so enthusiastically, he knows what he’s talking about and connects really well with high school students!"

--Thomas Worthington Parent


"My son is a junior at Olentangy Orange High School and did improve after taking the 2 day boot camp, however not as much as I had expected. Come to find out he didn't do all the homework drills recommended or memorize the study sheet. So while he learned the tools he didn't practice them. Three months later after doing every single recommended drill and memorizing the study guide my son improved in every single section and his composite went up 4 points. Obviously this opens many more doors for him and makes him eligible for much more merit based aid. Thank you Dr. Sampath!"

--Olentangy Orange Parent


"Hello,

I attended your free ACT prep session at the Westerville Public Library earlier this year. I wanted to share with you that I retook the exam for the second time in December and utilized the tools you demonstrated for the Reading and Science sections.

I am thrilled to let you know that I had a 2 point increase in Reading (31->33) and a 4 point increase in Science (28->32), allowing me to bring my composite score from a 31 to a 32!!

Just wanted to share my gratitude for your help! :)"

--Westerville South Junior

"Dear Dr. Sampath,

I wanted to let you know that my daughter's SAT scores came in yesterday. She got 1450 with 800 in math and 650 in reading/writing. That is 120 points improvement over her last SAT, she improved in both areas by 60 points each, with a perfect score in math. Her weak area is reading/writing and she couldn't have improved this much without your help. You took advantage of her strong area, logic and math, to improve her in reading/writing. And you helped her improve not only from the technical standpoint but also increasing her confidence. That is a big deal. Thank you for your help!"

--Dublin Scioto Parent


"Hello Dr. Sampath,

I just wanted you send you a big thank you! I received a 30 on my ACT! This is a four point improvement and I’m so grateful. I couldn’t have done it without you. Before this test, I was skeptical; I didn’t believe that any tutor was going to be able to help me achieve my desired score. However, thanks to you, it seems the impossible has been done! I wanted to send you this so that you could let other students know that it is possible to get the score they want, even it seems out of reach. Thank you for all that you have done for me; I highly recommend you for any student that needs ACT tutoring.

Thanks again,"

--Dublin Jerome Senior


"Dear Dr. Sampath,

Hello! I hope everything has been going well for you since February. As college admissions start rolling around, I wanted to thank you and PrepAccelerator for helping me with the whole process. Thanks to this program, I now possess the 36 I wanted for an eternity. Many fears about college that were paramount before have been erased, and tons of opportunities come in the door every day. For example, I recently received serious attention from Princeton, Yale, Harvard, and many more. None of this would have been possible without you. Thank you for absolutely everything!

Sincerely,"

--Thomas Worthington Senior


"The PrepAccelerator ACT Bootcamp is a clear, concise program that will help any student prepare for taking the ACT! My son raised his score a total of 9 points by following Dr. Sampath's advice and method for studying for the ACT. If you are looking for test prep for your son or daughter, I highly recommend Dr. Sampath's ACT Bootcamp course!"

--Westerville North Parent


"Dr. Sampath’s 13 hour presentation helped me to get a high enough score on the ACT the first time I took it that I was able to go into my senior year with considerably less stress. His test taking tips were incredibly helpful and prepared me to focus better when test day came. The 13 hours were definitely worth it!"

--Worthington Kilbourne Junior


"Dear Dr. Sampath,

I hope you have been well. I would just like to let you know that the coveted ACT results came out today, and I got a 36! I am obviously very happy and indebted to you for helping me so much. I would also like to share that I didn't miss a single point on the reading or science sections, which is definitely because of the excellent technique that you taught me. Because of you I now have a wealth of opportunities that I wouldn't have had before. Again, thank you so much!

Sincerely,"

--Olentangy Liberty Junior


"Dear Dr. Sampath,

While my son was comfortable with Math and Reading, he needed guidance for the English/Writing portion. He needed someone who could clarify the concepts and answer his questions in a logical manner. Within a few 1:1 sessions, he was able to understand English analytically and got a perfect score on the PSAT. Thank you for the valuable guidance that you provided him!"

--Dublin Jerome Parent


"Hello Dr. Sampath,

I wanted to thank you for all your help and guidance. Thanks to you I was able to score a 36 on my first ACT. Thank you so much for all your help!"

--Dublin Coffman Sophomore


"Hello Dr. Sampath!

I set an alarm for 1:00 AM this morning to check my scores and after checking them I was too excited to go back to sleep! They were as follows:

English: 34   Math: 33   Reading: 36   Science: 34   Composite: 34

I want to thank you so much for all the time you have spent teaching students like me how to succeed on the ACT. I think that your instruction was the difference between my 27 composite starting score and my score now. When I decided to graduate early I was worried about being able to attain a satisfactory ACT score. That worry is gone and now I can focus on polishing my essays and application. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Best,"

--Dublin Scioto Junior


"Hello Mr. Sampath,

I genuinely want to thank you for all of the ACT prep help that you've given by tutoring me in the library on weekends. I honestly have improved so much thanks to your skills because I was able to practice and apply them during the test. Science was my worst section on the ACT, however I am very proud and thankful to say that I got a perfect score of 36 on that section.

June 2016 (base score):
Reading: 29   Math: 26   English: 25   Science: 23   Composite: 26

September 2017 (after one summer of PrepAccelerator):
Reading: 28   Math: 30   English: 29   Science: 30   Composite: 29

September 2018 (after two summers of PrepAccelerator):
Reading: 32   Math: 33   English: 31   Science: 36   Composite: 33

I just want to thank you so much for helping me, and changing my future because I never thought I would be able to turn my worst section into my best. Best of luck in your future classes, I hope other students can benefit as much as I did!"

--Olentangy Liberty Junior


"Dear Dr Sampath,

Thank you so much for helping my son with his ACT preparation. Not only did he gain knowledge and strategies, he also gained confidence from you telling him that he could do it. After taking your ACT classes, he had a 3 point increase, and this is allowing him to apply to the schools he wanted to go to. That early morning he checked his scores and had a big smile. It was such a relief for him and me. Thank you ever so much!!!"

--Thomas Worthington Parent


"Dear Dr. Sampath,

I would personally like to thank you for the free classes you offered at the Northwest Library a few months ago; they changed my ACT score, and thus my college opportunities, significantly. I had been stuck at a 31 composite for multiple tests, and without having the right information on what to study, I didn’t really know how I could improve my score. Then, I decided it would be in my best interest to come to your free classes at the library. I took notes on every slide, practiced with the sample problems you gave me, and bought and used the official red ACT book. I especially had been having trouble with science; on my last test before your class I got a 26 for that section. I took the ACT again in April after regularly reviewing the material I got from your class, and I was shocked at how much my score had changed. My composite was a 34, and I moved up to a 33 in science. This means that now so many more colleges and scholarship opportunities have opened up to me, and I credit that to your class and the work ethic you demonstrated.

Thank you."

--Worthington Kilbourne Junior


"My daughter had taken the ACT twice before working with Dr. Sampath. She wanted to increase her score, particularly in Science. My daughter had one very focused tutoring session with Dr. Sampath and it made a huge difference. Her Science score went up by 9 points and her Math by 5 points. Dr. Sampath is extremely intelligent, has a wonderful sense of humor and a true passion for teaching."

--Pickerington North Parent


 

"Dr. Sampath:

Just wanted to close the loop with you on our daughter's college journey. She has accepted an offer to become a student-athlete at Amherst College next fall. She was recruited by Amherst, Johns Hopkins, Tufts, Vassar, and Bryn Mawr and passed all of her academic pre-reads -- a huge accomplishment on its own. Thank you once again for all your support as she went through the testing process last summer. She would not have had these opportunities without her commitment to the process, her SAT performance, and all your guidance and support. She's extremely excited about her choice and her future, as are we. Cheers!"

"Dr. Sampath,

Heartfelt Thanks for Your Excellent Teaching – My Son Scored 34 on the ACT!

I am writing to share some incredible news and to extend my deepest gratitude for your outstanding support and guidance. My son, who attends John Jay High School in New York, has scored an impressive 34 on the ACT, thanks to your exceptional teaching and unwavering encouragement! His score improved from 26 on the April ACT to 34 on June 8th in just 18 days of training with your guidance which is truly remarkable and feels like a miracle.

After checking the ACT scoreboard, I couldn't believe my eyes. Tears rolled down my face as I realized that your dedication and expertise have not only helped my son achieve this incredible score but also built his confidence immensely. We once thought this target score was a challenging feat, but with your help, it became a reality.

Your excellent training and dedication in making my son understand the material were instrumental in this success. Your unique teaching techniques instilled confidence in him, transforming what seemed like a miracle into reality.

My heartfelt thanks to you, Dr. Sampath, for making this happen in no time. I will never forget your invaluable assistance in this regard. Thank you once again for everything.

Thank you Emoji"

"Good morning,

Do you remember tutoring our son in November 2022 for SAT when he was trying to raise his SAT for OSU CS? After your help, he was able to raise his score from 1480 to 1550.

Attending OSU has been our plan for three years, and at the last minute, on advice from our guidance counselor, we applied to several Ivy schools. I felt my Columbus State Community College kid (he completed 20 courses at CSCC and 10 at OSU) had no chance of getting in, but to everyone's surprise, he got accepted to the Carnegie Mellon Computer Science program, which has a 2% admission rate.

Thank you for helping our son to get to college beyond his imagination!"

--Dublin Jerome (Senior) Parents


"Hello Dr, Sampath,

Just wanted to update you that my son has achieved his target ACT score of 34. He did your bootcamp in Nov and it helped him a lot in English and Math. He didn't take the tests quite seriously yet, also his phone habits and late nights continued. We did a private consultation with you in early January and then he became a little more focused. He started to get a perfect score in Math in the practice tests. He took the ACT in Feb and scored 33 composite, Math 36, English 32, Reading 32, Science 32. He tested again in March and got Composite 33 again, Math 35, English 34, Science 31 and Reading 30. So his composite scores in both tests remain the same, but his superscore is 34.

Again, thank you for all your help throughout and giving the best advice possible."

"Hi Dr. Sampath,

My son had a great first round of the ACT. He scored a 30. He prepped intensively on the English (since he has the most trouble with this subject) & scored a 33 on the English section. He's going to take the ACT again in June, He scored a 30 on reading, 27 on math & 30 on science. THis time he wants to focus on the math and keep current on reading, science & English.

Thanks for your help!"

"I wanted to give you an update. My son got a 28 the first time he took the ACT -

27 in math
26 in science
24 in English
34 in reading

We did your free ACT Crash Course in January, and then we bought your self-paced ACT bundle. He completed the English section and did a little bit of the Science section. He took the test again Feb 28th and got a 32!

28 in math
36 in science!
30 in English
35 in reading

Just wanted to pass along our testimonial! He didn’t even look at Math or Reading in the bundle so the extra point in each of those was just from the tips in your crash course, but wow adding 10 and 6 points from the bundle!"

"Dr Sampath,

My son is a HS Sr at Gahanna school. He was your student at PrepAccelerator for his ACT preparation last year.

I'm very happy to let you know that he got admission in OSU for Computer Science program as per his wish. Thank you for your teaching. You motivated him very much and he used to talk about the way you taught him the techniques in studying. Your structured way of teaching and guidance helped him a lot.

I appreciate all your help and guidance in getting him to reach his goals.

Thank you,"

--Gahanna Lincoln (Senior) Parent


"Dr. Sampath,

Our son took the ACT in June 2023 and received a 31. He took your ACT Workshop [ACT Boot Camp] in November 2023. He took the ACT for the second time on December 9, 2023, and he got a 34. We believe your workshop was the key difference-maker for our son. His improved score will make a world of difference in terms of what colleges he will be competitive for. I observed part of the course and found you to be smart, a patient teacher, and possessed of a very good sense of humor. In short, the value of the workshop was many times what we paid for it, and we recommend it highly!"

"Hello Dr. Sampath,

I wanted to update you on my daughter's recent ACT test results. As you may recall, her goal was to achieve a 29 Composite score and she did it! I believe she is most proud of her Reading score as it increased 3 points from the June test and 6 points since she started working with you. Your 1:1 tutoring really helped her achieve this goal. Following your required techniques and adjusting her habits to test mode made a huge difference. Prior to working with you, my daughter worked with a different tutor and was not seeing results. She was getting very discouraged. In her 1st 1:1 session you told her that based on her success as a student, she was very capable of achieving her target score. The tutoring sessions with you really helped build her confidence, motivation, and belief that she could do this.

Thank you for your help, guidance, and support throughout this process. I wish I would have reached out to you much earlier as it would have saved us a lot of time and money. I will be in touch when my youngest child is ready to start this process.

With Gratitude,"

"Hello Dr. Sampath,

I wanted to thank you again for your help with our daughter's ACT prep. She gained 4 points on her composite score, 2 points on English, 2 points on Reading, 4 points in Science, and 7 points in Math. I asked her what was the most valuable part of her tutoring work with you. She said the handbook where you required her to memorize the Math formulas made the most difference. How you taught her to pace herself and use a watch while taking practice exams helped her to stay calm and focused day of was extremely helpful. Also 1-1 tutoring with Science was essential for her. You were able to recognize exactly what she was doing incorrectly and helped her change her mindset regarding this section of the test. You developed an instant rapport with her that allowed her to listen and trust you as the testing expert and built so much confidence for her walking into test day. On our first phone call, your recommendation of: ACT handbook, English Bundle and the 1-1 tutoring for Science was exactly what she needed. Thank you for being honest with us on what was required and not overselling us on unneeded items and tutoring. We are thrilled with her results and will be reaching out when it is time for our next child to need PSAT/SAT/ACT prep."

"Hi Dr. Sampath,

We wanted to thank you so much for the work you did with our son! Junior year, we knew he had strong grades, courseload, and co-curriculars, but that his test scores likely weren’t high enough to get noticed at the most selective schools. Your helpful study guides, practice sessions, knowledgeable teaching, and individual encouragement made a huge difference for him - enough that he ended up choosing between Columbia, Cornell, a full cost-of-attendance scholarship at OSU, and honors colleges at many campuses. We know that without that SAT score, his application wouldn’t have been nearly as competitive and his choices would have been more limited. Thank you so much for your guidance - we are so grateful.

Many thanks,"

--Worthington Kilbourne (Rising Senior) Parent


"Dear Dr. Sampath,

Thank you so much for all your teachings, coaching and suggestions during the ACT bootcamp! My son has learnt a lot from it. Your teaching is clear and engaging, breaking down hard concepts into easy to follow steps. The materials are very comprehensive and well organized. Thank you for the parents session too! It’s very helpful for us parents. (Now I have a better chance to get him off screen and go to bed early!) 🙂

Thank you for your recommendation and encouragement, my son has agreed to take the ACT test in July. I signed him up for the July 15 test (a bit far (1hr drive) since no close site available). He will focus on studying the bootcamp material in the next two weeks (he is out for a summer camp this week), and will do some practice. We’ll keep you posted about his ACT score.

Thank you so much for all your teaching and help! Keep in touch and Have a great summer!"

"Hello Dr. Sampath!!!

We couldn’t wait to share the exciting news on our daughter’s score!!! Thank you so much for all of your help! From the Bootcamp to 1 on 1 tutoring, it was all so valuable in increasing her score! We couldn’t have done it without you!!!

Thank you soooooo much!!!"

--Olentangy Liberty (Senior) Parent


"Good afternoon, Dr. Sampath -

I hope you are doing well and enjoying the warmer weather. I cannot believe it is the end of May and that high school graduations are upon us. My son will graduate from Saint Charles this Friday. We are so excited and proud of all of his accomplishments.

Just wanted to let you know that he has decided to attend Villanova University. He is ecstatic to become a Wildcat and get into his top school. He could have not done this without the dedication and hard work he put forth in both his school academics and standardized testing. Your guidance, knowledge and vast experience with standardized testing was beyond helpful. Thank you for your holistic approach (studying, sleep, no screens, etc) to successful testing. We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with you. We would highly recommend you and your bootcamps to anyone.

With deepest gratitude,"

--Saint Charles Preparatory (Senior) Parent


"Thank you Dr Sampath,

My son scored a 35! Officially done with ACT and no longer needs to take the SAT. HE thanked US for signing him up for the boot camp. The English tips were critical - his first practice test (before boot camp) was 24 - increased to 35 after taking your class and practicing!

He took one practice test and did zero studying before your course. I think the overall first practice was 31. He followed your study plan closely and especially paid attention to sleep and electronics. Our dining room table became the distraction free study area - his choice, we didn't have to get on him about it. Whatever you said and however you said it made sense. 😀

We (gratefully) will not need your services again!

Take care,"

--Upper Arlington (Junior) Parent


"Dear Dr. Sampath,

Thank you for getting in touch with me. We are very proud of our daughter for her improvement from 26.25 to 32 in a mere 23 days and of the work she has done with you. I have scheduled her to retake the exam in July. We will implement your suggestions and try to figure out some one on one sessions. Again, thank you for the way you have encouraged and trained her for this, it made a big difference!

Kind regards,"

--Columbus School for Girls (Junior) Parent


"Dr. Sampath,

I wanted to let you know that my son scored a perfect 36 on all sections of the ACT when they took it at St. Charles in February. He was pleased after only having the 36 via super score from his two previous ACT tests following freshman and sophomore years. He enjoyed your 1v1 sessions and I think benefited. Appreciate your help."

--Saint Charles Preparatory (Junior) Parent


"Hello Dr Sampath,

I wanted to share my daughter's school ACT results with you. She received 33 (36E, 35R, 31S and 28M). I wanted to thank you for all the advice and helping us navigate through the testing process.

Thank You!"

--Olentangy Liberty (Junior) Parent


"Hi Dr. Sampath,

I took the SAT last weekend and just got my scores back. I got 1540 overall, 780 in English and 760 in math. I missed 4 in reading, 0 in writing and language, and 5 in math. I will likely be taking the ACT this summer and will be back for more tutoring. Thanks again for all your help and mentorship.

Sincerely,"

--Worthington Kilbourne Sophomore


"Dear Dr. Sampath,

My daughter was in a recent ACT crash course that you offered and took the test on December 10. I thought you would appreciate her results as she did quite well - she got a 34 with a 36 in both the science and English sections. She raised her superscore from a 31 to a 35.  I will say this was done with minimal preparation - much to my dismay, she only looked at the math cheat sheet the morning of the exam. When she received a 31 back in March - there was zero preparation there. I don't quite get it but I think she is naturally a good test taker - she has always done well on standardized tests throughout her childhood.

I did want to convey our thanks for your support - I am sure, as is she, that attending your courses for both the ACT and SAT helped her in being successful. I have a freshman in high school who will no doubt benefit from your classes in the not too distant future and possibly some tutoring. I will stay in touch.

From our family to yours - wishing you the happiest of holidays and a prosperous New Year.

Warmly,"

--Olentangy Orange (Senior) Parent


[Note: Ohio's National Merit Selection Index cutoff was 216.]

"Hi Dr Sampath,

We are happy that our son scored 1480 and the selection index is 221.

Thanks for checking with us about him and thanks for all your help in the preparation."

--New Albany (Junior) Parent


[Note: Ohio's National Merit Selection Index cutoff was 216.]

"Hi Dr. Sampath,

I just wanted to let you know that our PSAT scores came out today. I got a 1470 and my NMSQT index is 219 - I think this will qualify for national merit in Ohio but I'm not sure.

Thank you."

--New Albany Junior


"Hi Dr. Sampath,

I received my scores today, and I got a 770 on the English section. I missed more than last time on the math, but I have a 1570 superscore. Thank you for your help and guidance!"

--Columbus Academy Junior


"Good morning Dr. Sampath.

Thank you so very much for all your help! I cannot believe it but in just three weeks with your coaching my son raised his score 90 points!!! He scored 1550!

Thank you again for your help and Happy Holidays!"

--Dublin Jerome (Junior) Parent


"Our son had taken the ACT twice previously and was not happy with his composite score. He had a 25 the first time then a 23. Since a couple of the programs in college he was looking at required a 27, he set that at his minimum goal. We had talked to a couple of parents and all had recommended Dr. Sampath. He had already taken Dr. Sampath's free class through school, we enrolled him in his October bootcamp. Dr. Sampath is extremely thorough and bootcamp certainly means bootcamp but it paid off immensely as he moved his score to a 29 when he took the test at the end of October. We are already planning on sending our daughter to Dr. Sampath when she is a junior!"

--Saint Charles Preparatory (Senior) Parent


"Hi Dr. Sampath,

We are glad to inform you that our son scored 35 on his ACT.

He definitely benefited from attending the boot camp and the strategies you taught. Thank you so much for that.

We are planning to register him for the SAT boot camp too.

Thanks,"
--New Albany (Rising Junior) Parent


"Dr. Sampath assisted my daughter with both the SAT and ACT and helped to raise her scores on both tests. Apart from his well-designed instruction (and encyclopedic knowledge of test content) he also provided counseling that assisted her test-taking strategies and boosted her confidence. His preparation materials are excellent study guides, and he monitors changes in test content on an ongoing basis. Dr. Sampath communicates well with high school students and provides instruction with a sense of both urgency and brevity. He is also very effective in communicating the importance of test results for college admissions and scholarships. This is a valuable service for any high school student."

--Delaware Hayes (Senior) Parent


"Hi Dr Sampath,

I just wanted to let you know that my son is a National Merit Semi Finalist! He attributes so much of his success to your class so thank you again!"

--Upper Arlington (Senior) Parent


"I would highly recommend working with Dr. Sampath. We looked at several different options for our daughter, from national tutoring centers to individuals, and Dr. Sampath’s approach is truly different.

He cares about his students and gets to know them to ensure he’s creating a plan tailored to their capabilities and goals. He communicates very well with the parents too, so you know exactly what to expect.

Through very efficient 1-1 tutoring, our daughter increased her math score by 7 points and overall score by 4 points. We felt very good about the investment, and we will be coming back to Dr. Sampath for our two other children."

--New Albany (Senior) Parent


"Thank you very much for sharing the math worksheets with my son.

Because he took your advice and solved all the problems, he was able to earn a 36 in math on the July ACT. This score combined with his highest scores from the June ACT of 35 in English and 34 in science, Coupled with his February ACT reading score of 30, created A superscore of 34.

My son thought he aced the math section after he saw the most challenging July ACT math problems resembled those that were on the worksheets.

Thank you again for your help."

--Columbus Academy Parent


"We have been so happy with PrepAccelerator!  Our daughter had 1:1 tutoring with Dr Sampath and was able to improve her composite score by 5 points.  The PrepAccelerator process made sense and worked well.  Your child has to put in the time to do prep work, but our daughter didn't complain and enjoyed her time with Dr Sampath.  We highly recommend this program."

--Dublin Jerome (Rising Senior) Parent


"Hello Dr. Sampath,

My son got his scores back & we are very happy to report:

Composite 36
Math 36
Science 36
English 35
Reading 35

This was my son’s first attempt of the ACT.

He studied the concepts and techniques from the ACT Boot Camp and 1:1 private tutoring. Thank you for your guidance and support. He is already able to put this test behind him as a rising junior because of you."

--Dayton, OH, Parent


"Working with Dr. Sampath was an investment. When my daughter took her first ACT in the fall of her junior year, we didn’t worry too much about it. She’s a high achiever (4.0 with Honors/AP), and we assumed she would do well. When her score came back as a 22, we were shocked. This score seemed to be way out of line with her academic record. Through word of mouth, we found Dr. Sampath. My daughter attended a boot camp, and we set up one-on-one tutoring to fine tune. Following his plan (memorizing cheat sheets, study and review, sleep recommendations, etc.), she raised her score to 29 in 3 months. After getting to know her strengths & weaknesses, he proposed the SAT may be a better fit. We pivoted test prep to SAT, and she ended up with 1390 (ACT equivalent 31) by the end of her junior year. Schools which offer merit scholarships (guaranteed money for specific stats) determine awards using both GPA and test scores. With this score, she now meets the criteria for a full tuition merit scholarship at U of Kentucky, or $24,000/year from U of Alabama, and MANY more. In terms of activities to increase admission and scholarship money, I cannot imagine that there’s anything that yields a higher return on investment than test prep."

--Bishop Watterson (Rising Senior) Parent


"Hello,
I attended your ACT boot camp over the long weekend back in February. I was reminded by your recent email that you sent that I wanted to thank you for the boot camp. The first time I took the ACT, I scored a 32 composite, but it was brought down by my science section, which I scored a 24 on. After one more attempt at the ACT in the fall, and my score going down to a 31, I decided to attend your boot camp. In March, I took the ACT and achieved a 35, including a 12 point science increase, from a 24 to a perfect 36. My other sections included a 36 math, a 35 English, and a 34 reading. The boot camp helped significantly with my test taking, and I just wanted to thank you!"

--Olentangy (Junior)


"Our son has really benefited from the courses that Dr. Sampath has to offer. He did his free ACT crash course first to see what it was about and then we paid and enrolled him in the ACT Boot Camp over President’s Day weekend. He learned so much about different techniques and strategies to do well on test day. We were a bit concerned because his PACT scores freshman year and sophomore year were a 22 and 23 but after all the help from Dr. Sampath, he went into the real ACT test in March and scored a 29. Not only that, but now he wants to raise his goal up a couple of points and do some 1 on 1 tutoring with Dr. Sampath to improve on those areas he didn’t score so well. My wife and I have been so impressed at how engaged he has been in the process and we owe a lot of that to the excellent work that Dr. Sampath does with the high school students and he really motivates them to want to do well so they have better opportunities to enroll in good schools and get more merit aid at the schools to which they apply. We would highly recommend his services to anyone looking for a way to improve their kids’ test scores."

--Bishop Hartley (Junior) Parent


"I just wanted to thank Dr. Sampath for helping my daughter in her ACT preparation. His coaching and guidance to my daughter in ACT preparation helped her to bump her score from 31 to 33. While I know my daughter worked very hard to get this score, Dr. Sampath’s way of teaching the concepts played a key role in her success.

We are really happy to share this feedback.”

--Olentangy Liberty (Junior) Parent


"Dr. Sampath,

Thank you for the comprehensive ACT boot camp. My daughter was able to increase her composite score from 30 to 34. I was pleasantly surprised to say the least as I did not expect her score to increase so significantly.

Thank you."

--Olentangy (Junior) Parent


"Good Morning Dr. Sampath,

I hope the summer is treating you well! I spoke with you in January of this year about options for my daughter and her ACT score. Based on your recommendations she attended your bootcamp in March and took the ACT again just recently. From the bootcamp, she walked away with a couple of important things.

#1 Only use the official ACT book and your study materials.

#2 Practice, practice, practice.

#3 Study - but do it a little at a time.

While she did not start studying until summer started and her test was mid-July, she did those three things and saw a huge improvement in her scores. (See below.) By no means did she study for hours on end - just 30 minutes here and 30 minutes there. Every time we got in the car for a long trip the book/materials were there and she did a little bit at a time to break up the trip.

Screen Shot 2021-08-06 at 5.27.10 AM
Screen-Shot-2021-08-06-at-5.26.50-AM

Thank you for drilling home those three ideas for her! She's pretty excited to know that starting her junior year she is not pressured with studying for or taking the ACT. She can be happy with her latest score if she wants to be.

The time she spent in the bootcamp was well worth it! Have a great day!

--Olentangy (Rising Junior) Parent


"Good evening Dr Sampath,

I just wanted to let you know that I have received my score from the June ACT. I am happy to tell you that I reached my target score of 28. I didn’t think it was possible to move up 4 points in just a month!

When you first told me at the boot camp I needed to memorize the cheat sheet for English and math, I thought you were crazy. Turns out memorizing both cheat sheets allowed me to turn my 21 in English into a 31, and move from a 19 in math to a 25 despite my dysfunctional calculator on test day. I had maintained my 32 in reading, and improved my science score by 5 points (25 in the end).

I cannot thank you enough for all the help you’ve given me. You helped me realize a lot of the mistakes I was making were silly ones that could easily be fixable with some practice. I completed all of the math and English drills you had given me, and went into my test center feeling confident.

Probably the most important thing I learned from the boot camp was the importance of my sleep schedule. About 2 weeks before my test date, I started going to bed at 9:30pm and waking up at 7am to study for 5 hours. This allowed me to get used to waking up early and thinking for that long of a period. By the time my test date had come along I wasn’t tired at all, and by the fourth section I still had plenty of brain power left.

Thank you again."

--Dublin Scioto Senior

"Dr. Sampath,

Update on Feb 6 ACT: our son is glad to report he increased his composite score 5 points. Previous composite 28.

Feb 6 composite 33:
34 math, 33 science, 35 English, 30 reading

He’s most excited by the change from 21 to 30 on reading.

He will take it again at school. He would like to squeeze another point on reading and science if possible. But overall he was initially stunned by the change and now is excited to start college shopping.

Thank you for the help - it really made a difference for him."

--Saint Charles Preparatory (Junior) Parent

"Hi all! I am currently a Junior at Dublin Jerome High School, and I scored a 33 on my first ACT and a 34 on my second. Getting those scores early in the process was almost unimaginable for me. When I took my first practice test without any preparation for the ACT or Dr. Sampath’s help, my score was not even close to that range. To be honest, I had no idea where to start, what to practice, or how to improve my score. I went to one of Dr Sampath’s crash courses at the library, and I already felt like I had a great deal of knowledge just within those four hours. A month or two later, I attended one of his boot camps, took copious notes, and practiced the way he had recommended by memorizing everything on the cheat sheets and reviewing practice tests. I was supposed to take the ACT once more on December 12th; however, my test center got cancelled. I know many fellow students who faced the same fate and, without these scores that Dr. Sampath helped me get early on, I would definitely be stressing right now since the circumstances are so unpredictable. I give Dr. Sampath all the credit for my score because truly, I could not have done it without his training, recommendations, and PrepAccelerator! Thanks for everything, Dr. Sam!"

--Dublin Jerome Junior


"Dr. Sampath,

I just wanted to let you know that I got a 34 on my first try on the ACT recently. I did well on English but a little lower than I expected on the other three. I got a 35 on English, 33 on math, 33 on reading, and a 34 on science. I’m happy with the score given how many times the test got postponed, but I’m still planning to take it again. Thanks for helping me out throughout the studying process. I think it really helped!

Thanks again,"

--Dublin Jerome Junior


"Hello Dr. Sampath,

I just wanted to say thank you for all your help with my SAT and ACT prep. I found your materials, teaching, and courses to be very helpful. I got my SAT results back from September 26, 2020, and I got 1460. It's not my goal score, so I will be taking it again in December, but I just wanted to let you know and say that I am grateful for all your help, and appreciate your insight.

Thank you,"

--Olentangy Sophomore


"Dr. Sampath,

Thank you so much for your help over the past year and a half. Before I got tutoring help from you, I had a 23 overall. After one crash course class, I went up to a 28 composite score. Then after a single 1 on 1 session, my composite jumped to a 30 and superscore to a 31. I cannot possibly thank you enough for the techniques and strategies I learned. I will make sure that when anyone needs help on the ACT or wants to improve their score, PrepAccelerator will be the recommendation I give.

Thank you,"

--Saint Charles Preparatory Senior


"Hello Dr. Sampath,

I hope you are doing well.

I wanted to thank you for all the guidance you provided in preparing for the ACT. Holding the free ACT crash course is very meaningful as it shows the depth of knowledge required to take the ACT and the value of the ACT Prep course. The ACT Bootcamp is vigorous and thoroughly prepares one for the ACT. After attending your classes and practicing many tests, I was still missing one or two questions in every reading practice test. The 1 on 1 tutoring I had made the magic happen- I was able to practice your strategies and was able to get perfect practice tests afterwards.

These events really helped me do very well on the ACT yesterday! I was able to complete and review all sections of the ACT. I also took the ACT writing test and it went well too.

Please continue to provide these opportunities, as they are very helpful and provide great strategies. We will recommend your services to all our friends and family.

Thank you!"

--Westlake Junior


"Hello Dr. Sampath,

Thank you so much for your incredible guidance throughout my ACT prep process and helping me achieve a 34. Before being referred to you by a friend of my parents, I tried self studying and getting help from another tutor. It seemed that my previous tutor and I were both unable to provide me with the crucial test taking skills needed in order to tackle the test. However, you were easily able to provide me with loads of tips and tricks so that I could achieve my full potential. Your explanation of test "hacks," thorough math and English cheat sheets, logical breakdown of test sections, and fun, patient teaching style, all helped me do the best that I could on the ACT. Thank you again and I certainly recommend those who want to improve their ACT score to come to you."

--Dublin Coffman Senior


"Hello Dr. Sampath,

I took your ACT boot camp back in October hoping to learn your techniques and cheat sheets, and that is what happened. I took the October ACT under terrible conditions. I hadn’t done too much tutoring before the test and went into the test already dehydrated. I got flustered on the first 2 sections and slowly started to develop a migraine. I couldn’t read well with the migraine. I got a 26 composite with a 26, 30, 21, 27 in test order. After the test I studied your techniques, cheat sheets, practice problems for English and math. I took the March ACT at my school and took the test with confidence. I got a 32 with a 34, 33, 31, 31 in test order. I want to thank you for all the practice and advice you gave me."

--Saint Charles Preparatory Junior

"Hello Dr. Sampath,

We would like to let you know what my son's ACT score is: 31.

Thank you so much for your excellent ACT Boot Camp Course. My son is deeply grateful to you. We're so fortunate to have met you, who can truly help all high school students on these ACT/SAT/PSAT tests.

Best regards,"

--Metro Early College Parent


"Dr. Sampath,

We wanted to let you know how our daughter did on the February 25th ACT. She was so excited with her score! Her composite went up to 33! She got a 35 on reading, 34 on English, and improved to 32 on math and 30 on science.

Thank you so much for your help! We look forward to sending our two younger children to you for test preparation in the next couple of years!"

--Big Walnut Parent


"Good morning Dr. Sampath! I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you! I sat in with my daughter on the boot camp yesterday and you are full of so much information that is very helpful.

You present it in a clear and fun way which really helps! It also helped settle her a bit with her concern about the cancellations and limited chances. Hopefully this next time around she will get the score she’s hoping for!! Your boot camp certainly gave her the tools to do well and now she has plenty of time to review and learn!

Thanks again for you professionalism and kindness. I will most definitely send people your way in the future! Stay healthy!"

--Dublin Jerome Parent


"Dear Dr. Sampath,

First and foremost, I just wanted to say thank you for all of your ACT preparation. Because of you, I was able to get the scores that I needed to confidently apply to my dream schools. As of today, I have been accepted to Northwestern, Washington University in St. Louis, UChicago, and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Thank you for your preparation and support.

Sincerely,"

--Tree of Life Christian Schools Senior


"Dear Dr. Sampath,

I just got my ACT score back from the statewide test date and received a 32 composite score with a 35 in English, 30 in Math, 33 in Science, and 29 in Reading. I went into the test with minimal practice and am aiming to do better on the July or September ACT (if that's still an option with the Corona Virus). Thanks for your support, great advice, and insights on test taking. It's amazing that since I came to you for tutoring that I've gone up 6 points in my composite score. 

Thanks for believing in me,"

--Worthington Christian Junior


"Dear Dr. Sampath,

Yesterday, I got my ACT results from the February 8th test date. As a sophomore, it was the first time I had taken the test and I am happy to report that I received a 35 (36 in reading and English, 35 in math, and 34 in science - 1 more point in any of these sections, and I would have gotten a 36)!  I also received a 10 on the writing. I am very grateful for all your help and kindness. I found the boot camp to be extremely helpful and wouldn’t have gotten the same score without your useful and efficient drills and techniques. I am relieved to have gotten a good enough score that I don’t necessarily need to take it again, but I am glad that it happened early enough in my high school career that I can take it again if I wish (without rush) and try for a 36. I wish you all the best, and once again, I thank you for all your help!"

--Dublin Coffman Sophomore


"Dr. Sampath,

We are beyond thrilled that our daughter achieved her goal score of a 32 on the Feb. ACT. The strategies you provided through your free crash course were a great foundation to start building her confidence. She then began to master those strategies by attending your 2 Day Boot Camp. Lastly, the addition of a few 1:1 private tutoring sessions really put a personalized strategy all together for her to achieve her score. I appreciate the phone calls to check in on her and they provided such encouragement that she would be able to achieve her goal with consistent practice and, of course, plenty of SLEEP! I will continue to recommend you to my friends and I know when our son begins his prep for the ACT in two years we will be sending him your way. Thanks!"

--Dublin Coffman Parent


"Dr. Sampath:

Last night my daughter got the results of her February ACT. She got a 31! She was so excited and happy. She has worked hard for this and we are proud of her.

We are thankful for the support you gave her (and us) so that she could go into the test feeling confident and prepared. This wouldn’t have happened if she just studied the big ACT book. Thank you so much for all the tips and tricks. We know that the instruction you gave her was the reason she did so well. A six point increase is incredible!!!

Thank you!!"

--Olentangy Liberty Parent


"Dr. Sampath,

Our family thanks you!  You helped both my daughter and my son to measurably improve their ACT scores, impacting the schools that accepted them and the scholarship dollars made available.  My daughter benefited from one-on-one tutoring to improve her math score.  She has always done very well in math and took advanced classes, but it was your tutoring that provided valuable tips to navigate the question types and time constraints in order to raise her score even further.  My son participated in your free one-day ACT Crash Course (what a great thing to offer the community!) as well as your two-day ACT Boot Camp.  He utilized the study materials and practice exams and saw his scores climb.  Just one tutoring session with you, along with individual prep work, raised his English score by two points after it was already in the 30’s.  You make the sessions fun, pack them with valuable information, and offer them at a great price.  But most importantly, you really care.  You followed up with each of them multiple times – cheering them on and offering additional assistance.

Thank you, Dr. Sampath.  We will continue to recommend PrepAccelerator to all who will listen!"

--Dublin Jerome Parent


"My daughter attended the November boot camp and took the December ACT. I just came to know her score, and her composite increased from 27 to 31.

She is a junior, and she is looking to improve her score even more in February. The boot camp was very valuable and we are thankful!

Thank you,"

--Pickerington Central Parent

"My daughter went from a 27 to a 31 on her ACT in just over a month, and I can honestly say that it was the PrepAccelerator boot camp combined with specific and targeted private lessons with Dr. Sampath that accounted for the 4-point increase in her score. I feel confident saying this because our family had previously invested a lot of money and time in another ACT prep course and my daughter achieved a 27. However, after she took the PrepAccelerator course and supplemented that with private lessons with Dr. Sampath, her scored jumped to a 31. This 4-point increase has given her far more options for college admissions and has everything to do with Dr. Sampath's personal and professional guidance, which came through most clearly during their private sessions. I should add that Dr. Sampath will be the first to tell you that no method or professional instruction without a lot of hard work will get the results your child wants on the ACT, but my daughter has a tremendous work ethic; she just needed the proper method to make the significant gains that she was capable of. I truly appreciated Dr. Sampath’s professionalism but also his sense of humor that made their private lessons enjoyable, and the results made it well worth the cost. I would recommend the PrepAccelerator course without reservations."

--Wellington School Parent


"Hi. My daughter took the 2-day boot camp after she took the June ACT. She received her Oct scores today...

Composite increased from 31 to 34.
English increased 4 points (29 to 33).
Math increased 3 points (28 to 31).
Reading increased 3 points (32 to 35).
Science increased 1 point (35 to 36).

Her goal was 34, but now she wants to go for 35 or 36 composite.

Thank you!!!"

--Dublin Coffman Parent


"I highly recommend the ACT boot camp offered by PrepAccelerator. My son took the class in the summer after completing his sophomore year. He took the ACT for the first time shortly after completing the class and got a high enough score that he doesn’t need to take it again. The course really prepared him for what to expect on test day and he received helpful practice drills and study guides. Dr. Sampath truly has a passion for preparing students for the ACT!"

--Dublin Coffman Parent


"Dear Dr. Sampath,

I came to you because I needed a few more points on my ACT to get more scholarships for college, and I only had a few more tests possible before college. I started off by studying for the ACT by myself and went down from 26 to 25. I first started one-on-one sessions with you in late February and met with you up until the week before the test in mid-April. You gave me a plan to increase my scores, and all I had to do was follow. Even though I was out of commission due to a mission trip and shoulder surgery, I still was able to get my English up 10 points, my Math up 5 points, my Reading up 1 point, my Science up 5 points, and my Composite up 6 points to a 31! Your plan was amazing and was something I never would have been able to do without you. Thank you for everything that you have done and being a great teacher – from the ACT to life."

--Worthington Christian Senior


"To potential ACT prep students and parents:

Our experience with Dr. Sampath has been nothing short of spectacular. My student lacked motivation although he is highly capable. His initial results on the test were far less than stellar.
After meeting one on one with Dr. Sampath, his motivation level increased, his confidence seemed to improve and he actually started studying intentionally for the ACT test!! Dr Sampath’s approach, guidance and unique & fun way of relating with my student has made a huge impact. I am overjoyed with the results since his score improved six points in one test.

I would recommend Dr. Sampath and his prep classes to anyone who is serious about getting the best results on their college entrance exam.

Sincerely,"

"Hello,

I took your 13-hour boot camp in August. I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help. When I was taking practice tests, I was averaging a composite score of 30, and my English score was sitting at 28. However, thanks to your boot camp, I got a 36 on English and a composite score of 35 on the October ACT. I can now apply to the colleges that I want, and for that, I am very grateful to you and your boot camp.

Again, thank you so much!"

"We can’t thank you enough, Dr. Sampath, for the techniques and strategies you taught our son on how to take the ACT test. The results were amazing! M. took the test twice after his several one-on-one tutoring sessions with you. The first time he took the test, he raised his score 3 points. The second time, he raised it yet another 2 points. M. was able to improve his ACT score a total of 5 points from a 28 to a 33 using your techniques and strategies. You have taught our son invaluable testing techniques that he’ll continue to use in the years ahead."

"Dear Dr. Sampath,

Our daughter attended your Ace The ACT Boot Camp on the last 2 Sundays of August and we have some great news we want to share with you.

We just received our daughter's ACT test score for the September test date and we are elated!

She not only attained a perfect 36 on the English portion, but her Science portion jumped from a 27 to a 35.  Amazing!

As we rode home after picking up our daughter at the conclusion of your paid program, we asked her how she felt about you, the course, and what her thoughts were about the actual ACT test that was then less than 2 weeks away.  She said she was very confident about the upcoming test, because she felt well prepared by your sessions. She told us you presented each section in a highly coherent fashion and provided test taking strategies and techniques in a very easy way to absorb.  She also said that your personality and delivery style connected well with the students.

So, THANK YOU, Dr. Sampath for offering such a highly beneficial program for students who are interested in attaining the most out of their potential.  You prepared our daughter well!"

"Thank you Dr. Sampath!

My son came to you after scoring 20 on his first ACT attempt. We both knew he could do better, but his nerves definitely had a negative impact. After just a few 1:1 sessions with you, his second attempt went up 9 points! For him, he needed a few academic tweaks but mostly just a confidence boost, which you provided. With that behind us, we can now focus on selecting a school. We have many more options now with a 29 ACT score!"

"Dr. Sampath -

I attended your ACT Boot Camp a few months ago, and I wanted to express my gratitude for your help in preparing for the test. I scored a 36 composite (35E, 36M, 36R, 35S)! I found your class *immensely* helpful for preparation, and I know that those Sundays were worth their weight in gold (literally, considering scholarships these days). Truly, thank you!"

"Dr. Sampath helped me raise my ACT score with just a few sessions. His tutoring content is created to help students know everything about the ACT, including content and organization of the test. Dr. Sampath has flexible hours that allowed me to fit sessions in after crew practice. His free sessions at libraries around Columbus are so informational and I would highly recommend these to students who want to be confident going into the test but are not interested in the expensive tutoring that so often comes with the ACT. With 13 hours of prep that had both practice problems and review of ACT content, I felt more than prepared. Dr. Sampath is different than other tutors in the Columbus area because he genuinely cares about helping us reach goals on a one to one basis. Dr. Sampath gave me foolproof tips that were easily applicable on the test and helped me diagnose what my weaknesses were."

"My high school sophomore attended PrepAccelerator's Ace the ACT  seminars at Northwest Library in Worthington earlier this year. Although it took a little persuading to get him to give up three and a half hours of free time on the weekend, he came away from the first session very enthusiastic about how much he learned in such a short amount of time and was eager to attend the remaining sessions. Dr. Sampath's breadth and depth of knowledge on what it takes to improve scores in each ACT subject area is truly impressive. He builds a rapport with students quickly and really cares about helping them achieve success. I have not found another test prep resource for my kids in Columbus that has been as beneficial and worthwhile. Highly recommend!"

"Dear Dr. Sampath,

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for what you do in the community. I think that I speak for most families including mine, when I say that most of us cannot afford private tutoring. The fact that you are willing to take time away from your family and job to plan materials and make slideshows for free speaks volumes about your character. Thank you so much for your help and I wish you luck in your future endeavors!"

--Thomas Worthington Junior


"Thank you, Dr. Sampath, for teaching the PrepAccelerator ACT boot camp that my son attended. He described your teaching method as helpful and enjoyable and raised his ACT score by 3 points."

--Upper Arlington Parent


"Dr. Sampath has a calming voice that kids want to listen to. He has a very scientific and personalized approach to tutoring that is vastly more effective than the mass online test prep services. My son raised his ACT score from 32 to 35 after a single session. I have no hesitation in referring his services to others."
