Kennedy Test Prep. The Standard in SAT/SHSAT Prep.
Operating since 2010, Kennedy Test Prep is a local family business with the highest SAT/SHSAT results in NYC. We offer a full money-back guarantee that we’ve never had to pay. Read that again if you haven’t already. Our classes are fun. We love teaching and care for your kids as if they were ours, because we are as emotionally invested as you are. The majority of our students come from our competitors and are disgruntled with the prep they’ve received. We suggest you save your money.
I was born in Jamaica, Queens, grew up in Woodside with my Korean mom and Irish dad, went to PS 199, IS 125, Brooklyn Tech and Queens College, and lived in Queens Village with my wife and kids for the past ten years. I’m NYC through and through, and I’ve taught every imaginable test — from the SHSAT to the LSAT — for over 21 years.
I went to the same schools as your kids, hung out at the same malls, and played ball at the same parks. I know what works for reaching and connecting with a NYC kid and what doesn’t, because it’s who I am.
After earning a BA in Theater while teaching for 6 years at Kaplan, I discovered that everything I learned for the stage was a necessary tool for engaging a room full of teens — and the Kennedy Edutainment approach was born.
Our family business is not a corporate conglomerate looking to monopolize a misguided educational system. We’re here to hone your skills using our gifts — and have a blast doing it. We want your kids to be the best because we’re the best — the best SAT/ACT/SHSAT Prep with the best teachers in the best city.

Through Kennedy Test Prep in Queens and Long Island, she continues to do just that.
"Your children are not paychecks. They deserve to feel special. At Kennedy, SAT/SHSAT we treat your children like they’re our own because we want them to succeed as much as you do. Your kids are our kids. In a respectful and caring environment, any child will succeed."

And yet none of that matters if the teacher doesn’t care for his kids... and Steven gives ‘til it hurts. First to arrive and last to leave, Steven is there for you to help you reach your full potential. Now if only his jokes were funny to other people...
