The first time I took an SAT practice test I scored a 840...and Millie finally enabled me to reach my potential with an SAT score of 1400.

The first time I took an SAT practice test I scored a 840. After switching to ACT, using other tutors and still struggling to succeed, Millie finally enabled me to reach my potential with an SAT score of 1400. Millie’s approach to learning truly did break my pre-existing understanding of what education had to be. Throughout my journey, Millie's Co-founder & CEO Jenna not only effectively taught me how to succeed on my SAT but also developed a personal relationship with me that kept me motivated to study.

Millie was extremely committed to my success and accommodating to my needs, meeting me in Hong Kong, and skyping me even on my cruise! Millie also used their vast network to allow me to talk to a former architecture graduate from my top choice program, that helped me navigate my application to enhance my chances of acceptance.

& Gihan says...

The Millie team first connected easily with my son to understand him as a student and his university admission goals. Ariel (our counselor) implemented a holistic process to help close the gaps between where he is and where he needs to be. She is detail oriented, follows up closely with each task and keeps us well informed so as parents we know what needs to get done. Ariel is definitely improving my son's ability to gain admission to the university of his choice.”
