About Us & Our Team

SAT/ACT Sense was established in 2008 by Steven Rossner, a former high school English teacher, who had also worked for a number of private test prep companies. After 15 years of tutoring students for the SAT and ACT, Steve felt it was time to launch his own test prep company.

Steve’s goal is to distinguish SAT/ACT Sense from the cookie cutter programs that many high schools and test prep companies offer. Instead, we use a more customized approach based on three criteria: the student’s personality, knowledge base, and level of commitment. In order to effectively match each student with the right tutor, Steve personally meets with each student and his/her family before the start of tutoring. To guarantee the highest level of success, each student receives both a formal assessment (with a complete Diagnostic Test) and an informal meeting to assess the student’s level of competency. Once we have a baseline, we design a personalized program to help maximize the student’s scores on test day.

All of our instructors must be erudite (an SAT Word that means “wise due to much reading and studying”). In addition, each tutor has to pass the appropriate Diagnostic Test with a score of 90% or higher in his/her particular subject. We have an eclectic team of instructors from all different academic fields including: high school teachers, college professors, and even MBA graduate students. However, all our tutors have one common purpose: to help each student we tutor get the highest possible score on test day by teaching the most effective test taking and time management strategies.
