ACT & SAT Prep Classes

All About Prepare

I am Peter Schmidt. I run Prepare and teach all of the classes myself.  I am a graduate of Saucon Valley High School, Columbia University (BA, English), Yale University (MM, Music) and the University of Houston, (MFA, Drama)

After performing professionally in musicals, operas, and plays in my 20's and 30's, I began coaching SAT prep at a family-owned firm in 1999. I found the combination of my formal education and theatrical experience to be an ideal formula for keeping students interested and motivated. I subsequently received my certification as an SAT instructor from The Princeton Review before moving on to become Director of Academic Development at ScoreRite, a test preparation and tutoring company in Los Angeles.

In the summer of 2004, I returned to Allentown to begin my own business, PREPARE Test Preparation and Tutoring. For the past ten years, it has been an honor and a privilege to teach over six thousand students back home in the Lehigh Valley. Hundreds of these students and their parents have supplied testimonials, many of which are scattered throughout this website.

The fact that I went up 300 points just proves that this class works.
