To all of my students (those past and present) that just spent the morning giving “the beasts of all beasts” their best,
I am so proud of your commitment and dedication to be the best that you can be while meeting yet another of the thousands of challenges that are thrown in your path on your way to adulting.
You are amazing individuals, and I am so proud of you all! Now go and eat some lunch, take a nap, and veg-out in front of a screen!
Hello Homeschool Parents!
It is time to administer those EOY tests required by many homeschooling programs across the nation.
Do you have a homeschooled high school student?
Depending on your state’s testing requirements for home schooling, you could count an administration of the ACT by SMWUnlimited as your EOY testing requirement (as I would grade the writing portion of the exam as a certified ACT proctor and NC Licensed 9-12 English teacher).
The score report would be for your eyes only. This is a “no risk” way to start your ACT prep AND meet your EOY homeschooling testing requirements.
For this testing package, I will include . . .
- an official ACT practice test with essay (a value of $62.50). We can offer this practice ACT test online or on paper, timed or untimed.
- a score report and graded essay with an official ACT rubric ($40 value)
- a two-hour (face-to-face or online) coaching session, where your student and I will review your student’s score report and plan future goals that include a strategic focus on college and career planning (a $300 value)
-an online personality test with career targeted results ($25 value)
- an individualized study plan for future ACT test prep ($50 value)
-an online SMW digital test prep guide ($25 value)
-a reduced coaching rate of $50 per hour (normally $150 dollars per hour) for future ACT prep we might continue (an unlimited value).
Depending on your test results and your student’s future needs, we are happy to help with any live/online tutoring you might need to help him/her master this beast. We use a proven ACT Princeton Review, strategy-based prep program, and a targeted SMW Unlimited coaching plan based on your student’s individual needs.
At a $500 value, this package is on sale now for $350 dollars.
We would love to help!

AND OUR STUDENTS ARE KILLING IT!
Never in a million years did I dream that SMW Unlimited would start the year off so incredibly successful. After 20 years in education, SMW Unlimited was my first attempt at striking out on my own. It was really meant to help me rest after five years of teaching 120+ students a year in a high stakes tested subject here in North Carolina public schools. My students and I exceeded growth every year, year after year, but my family got very tired of the 60+ hour work weeks.
So last summer, I started SMW Unlimited with two corporate clients that I contracted to help with everything from shipping, website development, first-line video editing, and office management. I also launched a very successful Air BnB for a client that now celebrates 100% five star ratings and is a "Super Host" destination. I thought these clients would be the extent of it all here at SMW Unlimited. I was very wrong.
After we launched another successful ASPIRE ACT TEST PREP program in Person County in coordination with North Carolina State University and Princeton Review, my new personal assistant company turned its focus to another kind of assistance . . . TEST PREP and TUTORING. The ASPIRE program lead to inquiries about wether or not I would take on private students for ACT Prep and other writing specific tutoring. With the looming government shutdown, I launched SMW Unlimited TEST PREP, TUTORING, and COACHING in January of 2019 and the business has been booked ever since. I even subcontracted with another educator extraordinaire to keep up with the heavy demand.
We personally want to thank you all for trusting us with your lives, goals, aspirations, and children. There are a world of possibilities open to us at this point in time, but we will stay true to our original intention . . . "We will help as many as we can -- one need at a time -- for as long as we are able."
This is only the beginning . . . We can't wait to see where you all take us.
And Green Never Looked So Good!
SMW Unlimited has helped four students obtain perfect scores in the reading, science, and/or English sections this testing season.
Our growth range for cumulative scores ranged from 3 to 12 points this year (this point spread always depends on the hours and effort put in by individual students and their starting scores). SMW biggest success this year was taking one student with a 17 score to a 32 cumulative score during a 20 hour package. Since I started prepping students for ACT tests over five years ago, I have prepped several 34/35 scores.
SMW Unlimited is still working on tutoring that perfect math score. We did have one student get as high as a 35 (she only missed one problem). We have yet to see a sea of green on the math score report, but we will get there.
Just for reference . . . only 1 to 2% of the nation’s test takers score a 34 to a 36 on the ACT, about 10 to 15% score a 30 or higher, and about 25% will score a 26 or higher.
A 17 is considered an “at grade level” score for a NC Junior.
I can't tell you how much we love seeing all of this green!
