Coming to this class made me realize how the SAT asks questions, which makes getting the right answer much easier. By looking at my recent practice test scores, it is clear that the strategies taught or beneficial. This class, unlike others I've taken, is actually enjoyable.

SAT cram class -Murrin

I enjoyed the SAT cram class and thought they provided a lot of insight on the test. I feel that I knew more about the structure of the test, as well as the types of problems and questions that I can expect. This class also helped me learn to pace myself in each section and avoid running out of time.

SAT subjects -Alvarez

Originally I thought my SAT classes would be Really boring, but It couldn’t have turned out better. Sure, It was still a class, but I was never bored. Both Matt and Marlee were nice and understanding when people had questions, and I really appreciated that. Never once was I afraid to discuss a particular problem I was having, and they even made their respective SAT subjects interesting.

Impossible Math -Sheehan

I definitely thought that this class was worth the time, and the test taking strategies will undoubtedly be a lot of help. I finally found a new way to look at previously impossible math problems and I don’t get caught up in all the crappy details of the verbal passages anymore. Matt and Marlee, you guys are awesome people.

College applications process -Emanuele


We have had a wonderful and very positive experience with you guys. We found you both extremely knowledgeable and helpful, not only with regard to the the SAT, but with the entire college applications process.

You were always forthcoming and willing to discuss ideas and suggestions, as well as extremely professional in every regard. I know Michael enjoyed and really learned from you both. His comfort level was set very high immediately because of your outgoing nature and relative youth. I know he felt he could relate to you and really hear what you had to say with out feeling "preached to." He is going into his test confident and we are shooting for the stars.

Thanks you guys! It's been a pleasure!!

Colts Neck english courses -Gaines

I think that the math and english courses really helped! I learned a lot of new tricks that I never would have found out all alone! I feel more prepared now than when I took the PSAT.

SAT classes Colts Neck -Bukler

When I first began WaveLength, I thought it was really tough. Once I started having weekly SAT classes they facilitated all the problems I was having. Overall, I have learned many things that prepared me for the SATs and many general life lessons as well. I’ll definitely remember some of the life lessons I learned from Matt for my whole life. I also feel like I’m very comfortable with English, but not as much in Math. I learned a lot from both Matt and Marlee and I enjoyed the classes because they made learning entertaining.
Claudia Bukler, Colts Neck High School 2015, Colts Neck, Monmouth County, NJ 07722

Geniuses -Blanda

Coming to WaveLength, I felt intimidated, but I realized that Matt is certainly a teacher who deserves to be teaching. Although he can be quick and hard to grasp at time, I always felt like I was being taught by some other worldly being who had more knowledge and insight about the world than anyone else I know. Marlee is a pleasant woman, her ideas and tips were always really helpful. Overall, WaveLength has been very helpful, both Marlee and Matt are SAT geniuses and I’ve learned a great deal from them both.

Colts Neck SAT prep course -Hampton

My son Scott is taking your Colts Neck SAT prep course. I just wanted to tell you that he is really enjoying it. He loves going, which is amazing because it is after school and you’d think he’d want to be out of there. He especially enjoys the math teacher on Thursdays; he says it’s really great.

I just wanted to thank you for bringing your program to our school and giving him this opportunity.
Donna Hampton, Colts Neck High School Colts Neck, Monmouth County, NJ 07722

PSAT Colts Neck -Domino

From WaveLength I feel I learned a lot about the SAT that I would have never known. I feel a lot more confident taking the test now that I’ve had practice and learned tricks. I do believe WaveLength will give me the score I’m striving for. Based on just my practice tests I have already improved from my PSAT.

Local SAT tutoring -Dalton

Dear Matt and Marlee,

There are no words to thank you enough for everything you’ve done for Billy and for how pleased we were with your services.

From the very beginning we could tell we made the right decision when choosing WaveLength as the local SAT tutoring service for our son. With your backgrounds, education, and personal experiences you were both well qualified to instruct Billy in your respective areas of expertise, but it was your personalities that really made the difference. The enthusiasm you brought to our home every week was unbelievable, and the way you both were instantly able to make Billy feel comfortable and unintimidated was amazing. He respected both of you, he listened to both of you, but more importantly, he really liked both of you. He actually looked forward to his tutoring sessions!

Bill and I hold you both in the highest regard. You were always willing to talk to us, answer our questions and advise us. When it came time for college selection and all that the applications entailed, your advice and help was invaluable. I honestly don’t think we could have done it with out you.

Did Billy’s SAT scores improve? Yes they did, dramatically. And even though that’s what we signed up for initially, now that I look back on it all, the higher scores just seem like an added bonus. You both gave Billy so much more. You gave him encouragement and a confidence in himself that wasn’t there before. You had a genuine concern for him and respect for him and he felt that. You both became so much more than Billy’s tutors- you became his friends, our friends- and you will both be missed very much.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart,
Jill Dalton, Colts Neck High School Colts Neck, Monmouth County, NJ 07722

SAT format -Burke

While taking these classes over the past few weeks, I’ve learned the SAT format and how to approach the test. In Math, I’ve learned to put together many patterns while solving word problems that may benefit not only my math skills but my life. English has helped me with many grammar errors and has taught me how to write an essay. Taking the practice tests inside of the book has made me more comfortable with the SAT and has made me prepared to take the test. A little more help and studying wouldn’t hurt however these classes have really helped me a lot and have improved my knowledge.

SAT problems -Samson

After taking the WaveLength course I feel more confident in my ability to do well on the SAT. Before taking it, I did not not attempt SAT problems that I did not at first understand. Although I did find the math course more helpful than the English, I now look at the questions in both subjects in a new and more effective way.

SAT classes Colts Neck NJ -Cuthill

Both SAT classes were great. I feel that I learned a great deal both with Matt and Marlee. The both taught me a lot even about the SAT itself. Things that I didn’t know they helped me through and the class benefitted me a lot. This wasn’t just a basic knowledge course, it showed me tricks and tips on how to shave time off your test and that will get you those few extra points to boost my score. It really did help. It raised my score from a 1510 on my PSAT to an 1850. It was a great experience and definitely worth it.

Standardized test prep companies -Canetta

Last year the PTSO wanted to bring an SAT Prep Class to Colts Neck High School. We wanted to offer both the students and the parents the convenience of having an SAT prep class after school. After talking with numerous “big” standardized test prep companies, WaveLength was recommended to me by someone who had used them for private tutoring. I contacted them and was very pleased with what they were offering. We had two sessions last year, winter and spring. We received excellent feedback from both the students and the parents.

On behalf of the Colts Neck High School PTSO, I would like to offer you my recommendation for WaveLength SAT Prep Tutoring. Marlee Napurano and Matt Makrinos are professional, reliable and knowledgeable of the new SAT test. They have a way of getting through to the students. We will continue to use WaveLength this year for three sessions: fall, winter and spring. I highly recommend WaveLength to teach an SAT prep class in your school.

SAT habits -Kryzanekas

I liked the way Matt would keep everyone involved and come into class with the attitude that he wants to be there and try to get everyone to do better and progress. He and Marlee both shared helpful tips and SAT habits that would help me. I would not have done as well on the test if I did not take this class. I felt that my critical reading and writing scores jumped a lot because of Marlee and I also think that with Matts help I was able to work out some of the kinks in my math. He helped motivate me and so did Marlee.

Colts Neck SAT classes -Hozayen

Wavelength was a great experience. I learned the strategies necessary to succeed and felt myself improving with every class; This ensured that I was always motivated to do the work for the course. The SAT classes themselves were actually quite enjoyable. Marlee is a pleasure to be around and so much can be learned from her, and that isn't limited to SAT information. With her help I achieved an 800 in critical reading! Matt is an awesome teacher who instills confidence in his students. With their help I got a 2200 and into Cornell University!

History SAT subject test -Nadler

Wanted to let you know that my son Justin had an excellent experience with both Kevin Francolini and Daniel Sozomenu. Kevin prepped Justin for the US History SAT subject test and Daniel prepped him for the SAT. Justin worked with Daniel over about a 9 month period. Daniel was very accommodating with his schedule, worked effectively with Justin, and we saw a big improvement in Justin's scores.

We plan to work with Daniel again for our other children.

Thank you.

Reading skills -Khademhir

Hey Matt and Marlee I would just like to say you guys have really helped make more confident in both my math and reading skills and about the SATs in general. I am glad I enrolled in these classes and have definitely improved my real SAT score from my PSAT scores. Thank you again and please, continue to help kids in the future as they will surely need it!

Learned SAT -Keane

I really enjoyed and learned a lot from the class. I learned a lot about the SAT test that I did not know before. All the small tips both Matt and Marlee gave me made a world of difference. Both Matt and Marlee were so nice and taught me so much about the SAT and little things in life and for the college application process. Overall the class was great :-)

Colts Neck SAT prep class -Kalisz

WaveLength tutoring and test prep was beyond amazing. The experience here was very educational and was quite enjoyable at that. Matt and Marlee are profound teachers who teach what is needed and leave out any unnecessary information to help us understand better. I was quite impressed with the skill level each of them have for us. I am very impressed with this class and was happy I was able to enroll.

Helpful SAT prep -Balzotti

I think that this class was very helpful. I learned a lot of things that I would not have learned on my own. I feel more confident in my ability to succeed on the SAT. Marlee, I feel that my ability to take the reading and writing sections is better and I'm not as rushed. Matt, I feel confident in my answers as I can prove them and I have time to focus on them. I really appreciate all the little tips you have taught us, and THANK YOU!

Scores improved -Normoyle

WaveLength is a very good SAT tutoring center. I had two tutors before this and they cannot compare to WaveLength. I took the practice SAT for homework I saw my scores improved dramatically. The way they teach is different and better. The strategies they teach really work and help improve scores. I suggest WaveLength to everyone.

SAT errors -Moldaver

Marlee and Matt have a unique approach to teaching by taking common SAT errors and tricks and applying them to the questions. I definitely saw my scores get better in such a short amount of time (especially critical reading). They make the test less stressful by teaching a simple way to approach each question. Marlee really helped me improve on my weak areas and get even better at what I was good at. She is incredibly knowledgeable and does a great job conveying a huge knowledge base to us. The Skinny helps immensely, and I learned a lot from both classes.

Real SAT -Colts Neck

I thought this class was useful to me. I found some of the tips in verbal class were very helpful while I was taking the the practice tests as well as the real SAT test. Overall I took away a lot more knowledge than I had in the beginning.

As for the math class, I was a little slow with picking up some of the concepts in the first several classes, however I learned new ways on how to approach various math problems. Overall, I have taken away a lot of information that I had forgotten.

Thank you guys very much for helping me prepare for the SAT's. I hope that your business becomes very successful because you deserve every penny you earn.
Colts Neck High School Colts Neck, Monmouth County, NJ 07722

SAT writing -Colts Neck

With the SAT writing sections, I learned a lot because I even think I've been doing better in my regular writing classes. Today I had an essay in my history class and yesterday I had one in English, and I did better on the two essays than I usually do.

As for vocabulary, I know that I have acquired a higher level of vocabulary thanks to the cards and the list of words. I think that the writing and language portion was effective and will DEFINITELY be helping on SATs.

Thanks for all of the shorter ways to the math parts of the test. As a whole, I think that I'm prepared to take the test thanks to you two! Thanks for the help!!
Colts Neck High School Colts Neck, Monmouth County, NJ 07722

Score higher -Weinberg

Before WaveLength, I was truly scared for the SATs because I did not know how to take the actual test. WaveLength taught me crucial testing strategies. It taught me when to guess or not or what sentences to read and which not to. I believe WaveLength really helped me and will help score higher on the actual SAT.

Teaching skills -Rosenblum


I have known Matthew Makrinos and Marlee Napurano for over three years and have found their scholastic aptitude, teaching skills and acumen with the regards to the evaluation and management of the deficiency of students' educational background and the rectification of the same beyond reproach.

I wholeheartedly support their technique and strategies and believe that any student under their tutelage is bound to be successful with regards to academic pursuits.

Please let me know if I can provide you with any additional information.

Testing knowledge -Parlamas

Thanks so much WaveLength! You were instrumental in helping me achieve the score I wanted to achieve on the SAT.

Before sessions with Matt, my score was well below where I wanted it to be. Matt was able to teach me a systematic, strategic way of approaching the test. He also provided me with valuable testing knowledge and strategies to deal with questions that did not easily come to me. He helped me raise my score several hundred points in both math and verbal sections, which made the college process much less stressful.

I just recently graduated from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Looking back, I couldn't be happier I chose WaveLength.
