"I worked with Norman to prepare for the ACT. Following his speed reading course, I read at triple the rate I did before. It's a skill I now frequently use in all my classes to get through dense passages more efficiently. Likewise his grammar course not only prepared me well for the ACT but also made me a much more confident writer. His test prep course has proved the most broadly useful. I now apply the techniques he taught me in all my classes and they have relieved the stress I had around test taking, and hugely improved my grades. Norman is wonderful. I heartily recommend him to anyone looking to improve their academic performance in any area!"
