“Angie helped our son with ACT prep and it was the best investment we have made on this college journey. She is prompt, helpful and professional. Most importantly, she helped our son with his test taking skills which dramatically improved his scores. She was recommended by a friend and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Thank you!!”

Leah Bronstein

Parent of Student

“I cannot say enough great things about Angela and Cindy! We used their services from essay assistance, to ACT tutoring, to applying on the Common App. Their knowledge was invaluable. It’s like the best kept secret you can’t wait to tell your friends. They both helped make the process of my oldest applying for college virtually stress free by making a customized plan for her. Thank you Compass Academics!!!”
