Welcome to MAC!
What is MAC?
MAC Testing is a holistic, student-centered teaching and learning community offering specialized, expert instruction in mathematics, science, reading, and writing. MAC teaches thinking: how to process, interpret, organize, and convey information of all kinds. For this reason, we defy the easy categorization implied by titles like “tutor” or “test prep.” Rather than supplying students with easily-forgotten, test-specific, "wise guy" tricks, we offer genuine education. What a student learns at MAC is immediately transferable to other academic work, as well as to real-life problem solving situations. When a student leaves MAC, he or she sees the world and the self—both in and out of school—with a greater degree of clarity, insight, and self-direction than ever before.
At MAC, we're straight shooters. We don't find ways around your problems—we help you identify and solve them as expeditiously and as pragmatically as possible. Upon enrolling, students take The Profile, so that they can be assured that their learning will be tailored to their specific intellectual and personal needs. We survey students' content-area knowledge and, where necessary, test or arrange testing for learning disabilities. When students leave MAC, they can be assured that their academic "holes" have been filled.
With students coming from all over the world, we know that a one-size-fits-all approach actually fits none. We also know how insanely busy you are, so we offer scheduling that is highly flexible, taking into account the rate at which students progress. At MAC, we diagnose, analyze, prescribe, teach, apply, and remediate. You learn, succeed, feel self-confident, and thrive!
What people say about us
Dear Dr. Mac, I haven’t had a chance to stop by, but I just wanted to reach out and say thank you so much for all your help throughout the rigorous college process. I attribute my success to you, as I would not have been able to get into Northeastern University, my top choice school, without your assistance. I am so excited about the next 4/5 years, I will keep in touch. Thank you again.
Sincerely, Joe L
Dr Mac, Thank you for your thoughtfulness. With your expert assistance not only was our daughter Samantha accepted at UPenn as a high school senior but next month she will graduate with a degree in nursing. Next year, she will finish her fifth year at Wharton. As you know, Roshen, Katherine and Shivani have been admitted to The Johns Hopkins University, MIT and Drew University respectively. Kudos all around! So glad we referred them to MAC.
Thank you, Mrs. & Mrs. N
Hello, Dr. Mac! Over Spring Break, I was accepted into Purdue University’s 7-year veterinary scholar’s program. With your help, I earned admissions into all of the ten schools to which I applied, included Cornell as a guaranteed transfer student for sophomore year. Thank you for all your help over the years. I could not have achieved all of this without the way you taught me to endure and succeed on long tests, to remain motivated and to write well. I wish you all the best with your current students. P.S. Erica C is going to Boston University; Prithvi B is going to UPenn; Abi H is going to Howard University; and Amolika G will attend The Johns Hopkins University.
