I simply cannot say enough great things about the Academic Center for Testing in Gulf Breeze. It's Terry Benson's brainchild. Although Addy was pretty sick last night, she actually wanted to go. Her practice ACT score in reading has already greatly improved. And, more importantly, her desire to do well in school has dramatically increased due to the climate of learning there. Plus, several uber bright IB students provide private tutoring. For those in the area, it is so worth checking out.

I'm so pleased with the results I've seen from Terry Benson's PSAT/ACT/SAT Prep. She offers group classes, practice tests, study sessions to meet individual needs. Because of this, Drew has felt confident and prepared taking these tests. Scheduling is also so easy through the Mind-Body app. Thanks, Terry

Awesome instruction for my rising senior in the tutorial sessions that she attended. ACT score came up 3 points! Would recommend this group of educators!
Autumn received her ACT score yesterday from the April test. Her composite almost doubled from her last score in December! There were numerous factors that may have contributed to her earlier score. However, I, as well as she, recognizes that all of the ACT prep workshops at the Academic Center for Testing prepared her extremely well for the April ACT testing. Autumn's statement to me, "Mom, the workshops in Gulfbreeze truly prepared me! They really worked!"
Thank you for doing what you do!
I just wanted to let y'all know that we received notification last Friday that Lawrence Uhl was selected for the Summer Leaders Experience at the United States Military Academy in West Point, NY.
Mrs. Benson has been a wonderful asset to my children! Both of my college-aged children took advantage of her tutoring services for test prep, and she taught them invaluable tips that helped them both excel with the PSAT, SAT, and ACT. I highly recommend her services.
We took advantage of the preparation for college workshop and also test prep as well as the course on writing the college essay. My daughter ended up being accepted to Notre Dame, her first choice!
My son scored 5 total points higher than his first test and 10 points higher on the English section, thanks to these instructors! I wasn't sure how much the classes would really help, but after going to just one class, I could see the change in his confidence level...he was actually looking forward to taking the next test! Now he'll be taking the college prep classes also! My youngest son will definitely take the classes before he takes the ACT/SAT....he may only need to take them once, after going through the courses! Thank you all so much for REALLY caring about our children's future success!
I worked with Mrs. Bookout to prep for a college scholarship interview. I wasn't sure what to do or what to expect, and there was a lot at stake with the interview. In one hour, Mrs. Bookout worked with me and it made all the difference. Because of her expertise I was awarded the Presidential Scholarship at the college of my choice. Whatever you do, make sure to see Mrs. Bookout before your college interview. It will be time and money well spent.
The college workshop with Mrs. Bookout and Mrs. Benson was very helpful. I was worried about what I was going to write my essay on and I wasn’t even sure how I was supposed to write a college essay. This all changed at the college workshop, Mrs. Bookout and Mrs. Benson were incredibly helpful and they actually took the time to sit down with every student to help them craft the perfect essay and resume. I came out of the workshop with an essay and resume that I am very happy with. I am very thankful that they offered this class and I have told many of my friends about it. I highly recommend it and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
