SAT & ACT Private Tutoring


My name is Adam Piacente, teaching professional and founder of Marin SAT Prep, an educational service that specializes in preparing students for college admissions exams.

Combining long experience in instructional course design with a comprehensive analysis of the tests, I have developed highly effective test prep courses that have significantly improved the scores of students at every level of ability.

And your scores will improve too!

Since 2006, we have tutored some of the highest scoring students in the Bay Area, but you don’t have to be a top scorer to see the benefits of our test prep programs. Students at every level of ability typically enjoy out-sized improvement over previous scores, while those who struggle with test anxiety or learning issues often benefit most from our services.


Founder of Marin SAT Prep, Adam Piacente is a retired attorney who designed and taught some of the very first law school courses in online legal research. He is the author of a number of textbooks on the subject as well as author and co-publisher, with Lexis Publishing, of the official launch guide for the legal research service.

After deciding to transition from law, Adam took a position as a private tutor and soon began developing new and more effective methods for teaching the tests that proved so successful, Adam started his own education company.

Adam is the author of the comprehensive SAT guide, SAT Unlocked, and the forthcoming ACT Unlocked.  Adam is available to speak with your group about admissions testing. Please contact us for more details.
