Ease Test Anxiety

“Other tutors gave my daughter a lot of work. We thought if she just kept practicing the test questions she would improve, but she didn’t. We switched to Kyo Standard where they taught my daughter to really understand the test content. Her test taking anxiety dropped and her scored improved by 8 points.”

– Vincent, Daughter Brown class of 2022

Build Your Confidence

“I started working with a Kyo Standard tutor after working with another tutor for several months without results. (The tutor) and the (academic adviser) immediately made changes to the way I approached the sections. They came up with strategies to work smarter and build my confidence. I achieved my target from 27 composite score to a 36.”

– Emily Stanford Class of 2023

Kyo Standard helped my son score a 36 on his ACT. Going into the test prep session, we didn’t know anything beyond SATs... because that’s what we grew up studying for. Patrick, the founder, had my son take a practice ACT and a practice SAT exam. He assessed the test results with my son and that was when the both of them concluded that ACT was a better fit for my son’s style of exam processing. I never would’ve realized this to help my son. Patrick set up a practice schedule for my son. Transparently, your kid has to commit to putting in the work that is assigned. Patrick would then go over the homework, strategy with my son. They committed and invested the summer between my son’s sophomore and junior year. Patrick was firm and coached with a voice that a child could hear—certainly, a parental voice would’ve been drowned out by my teenager. Patrick was also very invested in the coaching/mentoring relationship. He encouraged my son, helped rally him when it was needed, and pushed him like a coach would—no sugar coating. As a result, my son scored a 36. As an aside, despite not spending too much time studying for the psat (time was spent on the ACT), the skill set my son picked up from Patrick earned him a National Merit Commended Scholar award. My son got into all the UCs he applied to, including Berkeley. Ultimately, got into his first choice, Brown, and will be attending Brown. We will have our daughter train with Patrick when she’s ready.read more
