My name is Adam Piacente, teaching professional and founder of Marin SAT Prep, a private tutoring service that specializes in preparing students for the SAT, ACT, SSAT, & SAT Subject Tests*.

Our Courses

Combining long experience in instructional course design with a comprehensive analysis of the tests, I developed highly effective test prep courses that have significantly improved the scores of hundreds of students at every level of ability.

And your scores will improve too!

Our courses cover every subject and topic tested, teach proven strategies for efficiently and accurately answering each question type, and show you effective test-taking techniques to minimize fatigue and maximize performance.

Our Materials

Like any good test prep service, we use official training materials published by the makers of the tests, so you can be sure of practicing with questions most like the ones you are likely to see on test day.

When it comes to the SAT, Marin SAT Prep takes training to the next level with our flagship coursebook, SAT Unlocked, the only book that organizes the almost two thousand official questions of the OSSG by type and by difficulty.  SAT Unlocked’s unique SAT learning system makes it easy to master any SAT topic, and is what sets Marin SAT Prep apart from every other SAT prep service.

Our Tutors

Any course, no matter how well designed, is only as good as the people who teach it.  Marin SAT Prep tutors are all experienced teaching professionals thoroughly trained in the Marin SAT Prep learning system.  As tutors, we take a personal interest in helping each of our students succeed and always strive to create a positive and supportive learning environment that promotes understanding and builds confidence.

We look forward to hearing from you!
