"Our Patronesses gave Nick Standlea and Test Prep Gurus the highest of marks. His presentation “Reducing Anxiety in Standardized Testing and the College Admission Process” was highly informative and entertaining (and just as important, it did not include a sales pitch of any kind). I highly recommend that other National Charity League Chapters include Nick in their annual program!"
- Tania Jernigan, President, National Charity League: Monarch Chapter
"This was by far our best meeting of the year. Thank you for breaking down the many myths surrounding the SAT, ACT, and college admissions, and spelling out clearly what options students have. The girls were engaged, asking questions, really listening. After you left, the conversation continued; they were sharing stories, strategies, questioning each other on what they thought the best options were, etc. Your level of engagement is remarkable and everything you say to them is so positive and well thought out. I also appreciate the time you took to demystify the New SAT and the options you suggested for our girls; especially with them being the first to take the new SAT and how colleges will react to the new format. NCL is a wonderful organization and we have loved working within our communities with our daughters to build a brighter future for not only them, but for others. It’s nice to meet people with the same goals in mind."

"Nick gave an engaging presentation with extremely relevant information about the SAT and ACT and college admissions in general. Thank you Test Prep Gurus!"

“Thank you for coming and speaking at our Patroness meeting tonight. Your presentation was amazing and very informative! I received very positive feedback from the members. I plan to forward your information on to the other NCL Presidents in our area. I think NCL is a great organization for your positive message that you share with your audience...please feel free to share my e-mail and I would be happy to recommend you to any NCL Chapter. Thanks again.”
