Tests and the Rest: College Admissions Industry Podcast

Aug 27, 2021

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


Meet Lori Tofexis. Lori grew up in NY and NJ and attended the University of Pennsylvania, earning a degree in Communications.  She worked in television for a while (behind the scenes) and then took a job in Florida.  Eventually, Lori started selling sailboats in Miami and Ft. Lauderdale, which provided her the opportunity to go sailing every chance she had.

After raising her family, Lori decided to become a math teacher. She enrolled to get the credits needed to re-learn all the high school math that she had forgotten. This was actually fun for her, allowing her inner nerd to come out. She started tutoring kids in math. Eventually, one parent asked if she could help their daughter with the SAT.  "Why not?" she said. The rest is history.
