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
Dr. Mac, I cannot begin to tell you how thankful we are for all you have done for us. It is due to your teaching, support and guidance that George is attending The University of Notre Dame in the fall. In addition to his test scores, his writing skills and confidence have dramatically improved. There is no one person who has changed so many young lives and provided them with an opportunity to success in the future more than you. God bless you for all you do!
With much appreciation, Carol, Wayne & George
Dear Dr. Mac, I did it! I am going to college! I can’t thank you enough for what you have done for me. Thank you so much for pushing me hard to do my absolute best on the SATs. Thank you so much for your pep talks whenever I felt down. Thank you so much for the lessons, along with these powerful résumés and essays. Lastly, thank you so much for the countless memories and laughs. You will always have a special place in my heart. I am ecstatic to announce that I will be attending Drexel University with an amazing scholarship and will be majoring in biology with a minor in psychology. Thank you so much for everything that you have done for me. Love you so much!
Yours truly, Puja
Dr. Mac, Thank you so so so so much with everything . . . medical school apps, MCATs, college apps, SATs and now residency apps! I couldn’t have done it without you. It amazes me how far I have come, and I’m happy to say you were a HUGE part of it all. From paperwork to emotions, you were always there for me. Can’t wait to see you soon and to share with you where I get into residency. My personal statement came out great!
