With 20 years of experience and over 3000 students, Span Test Prep can confidently say it raises test scores more than any other test prep course. Increased ACT and SAT scores can directly lead to significant scholarship opportunities, so STP teachers are determined to help each student reach his/her maximum potential.




Span Test Prep knows how much high schoolers have on their plates, so the STP program is designed to be the most efficient and flexible in the country. Students take tests whenever it is convenient for them, and then need only 6 hours of one-on-one time with a teacher to see a huge jump in scores.



"Span Test Prep with Mr. Greenspan spanned my score by 4 points in a very short time period. The fantastic one-on-one sessions were definitely the reason. With Span Test Prep, I learned how to time myself through every section, and, by the end of the course, I felt like I knew the test inside and out. With the combination of a few full test simulations and one-on-one sessions, Span Test Prep is the best way to prepare for the ACT and nail those pesky Geometry problems from freshman year.”

"My prep experience with Span Test Prep was nothing short of phenomenal — I felt that Mr. Greenspan really wanted us, the entire class, to succeed, to achieve the scores we desired. And he put in a lot of work and extra time to see to it that we reached that goal.”

Ben I.

"My experience with Span Test Prep was a very positive one. I received very good one-on-one attention and reviewed many different practice tests, which helped me feel very prepared for the ACT. ”

Patrick W.

"My score definitely improved and I was very satisfied with it. I think the main reasons were that it really helped me with time management and what to expect and generally how to handle the test. ”

Alexandra L.

"Because of the excellent test preparation from Mr. Greenspan’s ACT course, my overall score increased 7 points. As a result, I received a $28,000 college scholarship, which made this class a phenomenal investment.”

Briggs C.

"Taking Span Test Prep changed my whole perspective on the ACT. By learning more about the nature of the test, techniques to better manage time, and a specific understanding of the content, I was able to score higher surprisingly easier. I would definitely say that students who don’t take this course are at a disadvantage; Mr. Greenspan knows the test inside and out.”

Ryan was born extremely premature, 3 months early, weighing 2 pounds. When he was three days old he had a large bleed in his brain, in other words, he had a stroke. He has a left sided weakness and had significant learning disabilities. To be honest, we always tried to focus on his abilities instead of his disability. He always worked very hard in school, but it was a struggle.

When he took the practice ACT he scored a 12. He was mortified. More than anything, he wanted to go to college. He was completely unwilling to even consider community college. A university was his measure of success. He had taken the ACT two times and scored an 18 with each attempt. He took the school provided prep without any change, and he was becoming increasingly distraught that his options were limited due to his score.

As it turned out, you were his brother Stephen's tennis coach. We hosted a pasta party which is how we met you. You asked me if I had any other children, and I told you I had a junior. The pasta party happened to be on the same day as the Prairie State Exam, which is how we landed on the ACT topic.(Ryan scored another 18 on that attempt). Call it divine intervention, karma, things happen for a reason, the fact that you arrived on the right day, at the right time, does not go unnoticed. Due to your tutoring sessions Ryan's next ACT attempt was a 21! To this day, if you ask him who or what has impacted his life, he refers...to you, who gave him the opportunity that he didn't have previously.

For Stephen, you raised his score 3 points. That was worth $60,000 in scholarship money.

The test prep was fantastic. Dustin did a wonderful job tutoring Sofia and she feels prepared to take the exam in September. I really can’t say enough about Dustin - he was extremely helpful, personable and always willing to spend extra time with Sofia. Honestly, he went above and beyond our expectations.

I have three kids who used the Span Test Program.  All three improved their overall ACT score by 3-5 points.  One of my kids improved their science score by six points.  Mr. Greenspan taught my child a new approach to reading the scientific graphs and being able to pull out the relevant data to answer the questions. The overall score went from a 30 to a 33. Another child was scoring in the 25/26 range on English and got a 32 on the English portion of the ACT test.  Mr. Greenspan helped identify areas to improve and strategies to practice.  He provides real tests that allow the students to become comfortable with the material.  My kids really benefited from the one-on-one time.  Mr. Greenspan gave them so much confidence going into the test.

We had an amazing experience with Scott. I had not been specifically referred to Scott and Span Test Prep, but someone I knew had heard that he helps tutor for the ACT and I called him. For whatever reason, I had no doubt when Scott told me his clients go up five points on the ACT.  My daughter went up 5 points on the next test and another point the following test.  She got into her dream school and couldn't be happier!
