Homeschooling a high school student has been challenging, rewarding, frustrating, and fun. It isn't always easy and there are many demands throughout our days. One of the pressing issues is preparing for the SAT/PSAT. Taking one of the tests is inevitable and, therefore, extremely important to prepare for. Unlike most tests, the SAT & PSAT are from a different breed all together. They are longer, encompass more, and can cause high anxiety levels in the parents and student. This is because throughout school, students have heard the horror stories of taking the SAT and the "outcome" of getting a low score. 

But fear is not a necessary emotion when thinking about the SAT. As a member of the TOS Crew, I have been given the opportunity to discover that there actually is a way to prepare for the SAT and PSAT/NMSQT that can greatly increase your student's scores and decrease his anxiety. The College Prep Genius DVD set (recently revised & updated to the 2nd Edition) offers a remarkable strategy to help your student master the SAT, or as the website says...
"College Prep Genius is a revolutionary program designed to help students master the strategies behind the test and learn how to get the correct answers" (

How is it any different than other products you've seen on the market? Let me explain.

To start with, let me tell you what College Prep Genius doesn't do. It doesn't teach how to answer every single question by analyzing it, stressing over it, or teaching strategies that will apply to the test only. 

How this program does work is by teaching techniques and strategies for each section of the SAT, using ACRONYMS that are easy to memorize & simple to follow, exposing pitfalls that students fall into & ways to get away from them, and so many more wonderfully creative steps to increase SAT scores that will help pave the way for your students academic life.

The College Prep Genius program was developed by homeschooling mom, Jean Burk. While preparing her own children for the SAT, she began looking deeper into it and discovered patterns, tricks, pitfalls, question types, etc, that are on every single test. The result? Her son and daughter were offered full scholarships to so may schools that Jean writes "For my son, we received seven trash bags full of scholarship offers from colleges across the country – ALL based on his PSAT score!!!". From there she was able to put it all together and created College Prep Genius. She now travels the US offering her wisdom to students and parents with the intent of helping them get into college with great scores, which increases the opportunities for scholarships and possibly full tuition rides!

College Prep Genius has been featured on channels like NBC, CBS, Fox, and The Homeschool Channel. The following video is one of the show which will give you even more of an insight on the program:

The DVD set includes the College Prep Genius 325 page textbook, 79 page workbook(with extra printable homework pages), & 4-DVD's that have 12 lessons in total. Jean recommends allowing 45minutes to an hour for each lesson and working 2-4hrs a week on studying, depending on age & grade. She fully explains the SAT at the beginning of the textbook, which offered me a whole new perspective. I loved her candidness and thoroughness. It is quite apparent that Jean has put much time & devotion into preparing this program I encourage you to take a look at it for your student.
