Testimonials of Past MAC Clients

"Dr. Mac, I just graduated with an Associate's Degree and recently started the police academy. Everything that you taught me was one of the biggest reasons that I graduated and why I'm doing well in the academy."

- Mike Scanlon

"I cannot thank you enough for the incredible job you did with my son, Evan. To date, he has academic college scholarships totaling $399,600 over the next 4 years. Not only did you bring Evan's scores up 380 combined points since the PSAT but you prepared him mentally for taking the test, too. Having taken both the PSATs, as well as the SATs twice, Evan knew what he was up against. However, with your training, he went into his last test feeling confident as ever."

- Theresa Pastorelle

"Dr. Mac, I really appreciate what you've done for me, certainly one of the best things in my life. You really are a special woman for what you're doing. I just want to say thank you in so many ways."

- Syessence Davis

"I cannot begin to imagine where we would be right now without your expert help and genuine caring. Ever since we started bringing John to MAC Testing, you have proved to be a positive, upbeat, and incredibly helpful constant in all of our lives. John, a good student but a chronically nervous test taker, really came into his own after studying with you and your wonderful staff. Whether it pertains to the numerous prestigious colleges that he has now been able to apply to, or the ease he now feels when taking a test, John would not be in as good standing today had he not attended your extraordinary program."

- Theresa Taddeo

"I cannot say how grateful I am for your guidance because without you, I would never have been able to accomplish so much. When I entered MAC, my SAT scores were extremely low and I lost confidence in my abilities as a student and as an individual because I thought that I could never do better. I took the SAT twice, with an overall improvement to over 2000 on my score."

"Having just completed my undergraduate career at NYU, I am now looking back at my four years there and thinking of all the kind people who helped and supported me along the way. I thought of you immediately because there is no way I could have even started down this path without you. I remember filling out my early decision application at the last minute with you on Halloween. Your patience and dedication was incredible! I have grown, learned, and changed so much since then, and you helped make it possible. I did not just learn in the classrooms at NYU but also from working for you. You taught me to believe in myself and to always see the good in others. Your work ethic has always been an inspiration to me, as well. Again, thank you so much for all that you have helped me to accomplish and the lessons you have taught me."

"I never believed that I could accomplish such a feat--my acceptance into The College of New Jersey. When I sat down this October to complete my college applications, I knew that TCNJ was a reach for me. It is the school of my dreams though. It was just a week ago when I saw that large envelope from TCNJ. That was when I knew my hard work had paid off. It wasn't just a dream that came true; it wasn't a stroke of luck. it was all the hard work I had put into the entire college process that started at MAC Testing a year ago. I learned more than math and grammar at MAC Testing; I also learned how to write well and present myself on paper. These skills became essential when it came time to apply to college and write the array of essays which these colleges asked for. Thank you, Dr. Mac, for helping my dreams come true. You did not just teach me what I needed to know to get into college but you have also inspired me for life. I know as I go forward through the rest of my senior year and when I attend college at TCNJ this fall, I will still be using the tools I learned from everyone at MAC Testing. Thank you for your help, your guidance, and once again, your inspiration. Thank you."

- Lauren Debrowski

"Words cannot describe what you have taught me, but the one resounding piece of advice that has remained with me is this: that no matter how hard the obstacle, no matter how bleak things look, perseverance is the key to victory. As I push forward into the first few weeks of classes at Purdue University, that advice has certainly held true. Although some classes are certainly difficult, they are not beyond my ability, and they are not beyond me. What I learned from you was more than just how to get higher test scores: it was how to achieve greater things in life. Thank you."

- Dennis Chu
