Thanks to the Walmart Foundation,, the Education Equalizer Foundation hosted its inaugural ACT and SAT prep course. “Any middle through high school-aged student preparing for the ACT and SAT exam should consider taking this course. It will help them secure money for scholarships in college and improve their test-taking skills,” said Dr. Kerwin Scott, EEF Co-Founder. The course is 100% virtual, and the class size is limited to ten students. The small class size enables test takers to get the tutoring they need to beat the ACT and SAT exams.
