Tests and the Rest: College Admissions Industry Podcast

Aug 25, 2021

Ready to learn the history, philosophy, and practice of an experienced professional in the test prep industry?


Meet Marina Yalon, who has spent over 15 years in the education sector, propelled by the belief that all students have the ability to learn and deserve access to quality education! Over the years, she's helped build schools in Guatemala, measure student achievement in over a dozen countries, and worked with more than 1,000 students to help them achieve their goal scores on the SAT & ACT. She is a graduate of Rutgers and Georgetown Universities. Through more than 10,000 tutoring hours, logged in-person and virtually, in the US and abroad, she's developed effective methodologies to beat these tests and help students achieve their goals. In addition to helping with test prep, Marina also has a proven track record of helping students develop robust math skills, increase their math academic performance, and develop math (and life!) confidence. She likes to say that she helps her students see that math (and other challenges) are all figure-out-able!
