Tests and the Rest: College Admissions Industry Podcast

Dec 27, 2021

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


Meet Ian Siegel. Ian started Streamline Tutors in Baltimore, MD, in 2013 and has been tutoring full-time for a decade, primarily as an SAT/ACT tutor and college essay coach.  Ian consistently gets some of the highest score improvements in the country on the SAT and ACT.  He attributes his success to his ability to act as a mirror to his student’s actual potential, something that’s obscured by realities in school and society.  Most recently, Ian has made a study of our learning potential as humans, the most common impediments to authentic learning, and specific techniques for unearthing the incredible authentic learner in us all.  This investigation is captured in his manuscript 1-on-1, The Future is Ancient History: A Manifesto on Human Learning, which he hopes to publish in the next year.
