Tutoring News Post

I scored a Perfect 1600 on the New SAT (score report attached).

As you might know already, I've been teaching and tutoring the SAT for over 20 years.  Since I began tutoring the test, I have continued to take the SAT periodically to stay sharp and up-to-date, including a perfect 2400 on the May 2014 exam.

A new, "revised" version of the SAT was released in March of 2016.  In May of 2016, I took my first official 1600-point SAT since high school in 1997, and scored a 1520/1600 (99%).

That score was OK--but I'm a perfectionist, so I was determined to do better.  When I received my QAS report (Question and Answer Service) in the mail, I closely analyzed my results from the May test, and of course continued to obsessively work on SATs and PSATs with my private students, including the recently released SATs #5 and #6, as well as the 4 official practice PSATs currently available.

I'm happy to announce that on my very next attempt (10/1/16), I scored a perfect 1600--answering all 154 questions correctly (see below for full score report).

As of January 2024, I am still one of the only people in the world to have scored perfectly on both the 2400-point (2014) and 1600-point (2016) SATs. 

I also scored a perfect 36 on the April 2018 ACT, with all 215 questions answered correctly, and a perfect 340 on the GRE in 2020. 

Will I earn a perfect 1600 on the new Digital SAT aka DSAT as well?  Unfortunately, the College Board is no longer allowing adults and tutors to take the exam--but I've already had multiple private students earn 1500+ scores on the 7 international versions of the DSAT already administered in March, May, June, August, October, November, and December of 2023.
