Laura is honest and if your child is willing to work to improve, she’s the one for you. Take my son for example. His initial diagnostic was 1330 and his first SAT score was 1600. He eventually took his last SAT exam reaching his goal of over a 2000.
— UC Berkeley, Class of 2015
After tutoring with Laura, my child earned a perfect 800 score on the SAT Subject Math Level II test. Additionally, my child earned perfect 800 scores in writing on both the SAT and PSAT. My child’s overall SAT score was in the ninety-ninth percentile with an increase of 380 points. Laura Demko is simply amazing!
