PROFESSIONAL TEST PREPARATION
THE IVY-LEAGUE CHALLENGE
After having placed over 2,000 athletes, we know that many young athletes have a considerable respect for the English language and are concerned about meeting the requirements of universities. We will therefore not leave you alone and offer you professional language courses in test preparation for the TOEFL, SAT / ACT and GMAT / GRE. Let’s take this hurdle together!
Why are the tests so important?

BELONG TO THE ELITE
WHAT MAKES OUR TEST PREPARATION SPECIAL?
We are very proud of our current test preparation. After installing the new system, our athletes were able to improve by an average of 15% in the tests. That difference can make the difference between thousands of dollars in an athletic scholarship or acceptance to an elite university.
When preparing our athletes, we rely on individual support with a determination of the status quo. This individual support has the advantage that, compared to preparation with learning books or group courses, you learn very interactively and can partially simulate the real test situation. In addition, we have the chance to promote every athlete individually and on the basis of their current performance.
- 1:1 teaching units of 45 min
- Performance analysis at the start of preparation
- Preparation strategy for supplementation outside the units
Our top priority is to advise our customers comprehensively at the highest level. After 10 years in the placement of athletes in the US, we come to the conclusion that college sports have a higher focus on athletic aspects. When it comes to team sports such as soccer, European talents are often left behind when they start their careers in college.
With this knowledge, we have worked intensively to create a program for you that will also prepare you athletically for sport in the USA and increase your chances of receiving a scholarship at a top university.
Since November 2019 we have been working with graduate sports scientist Kevin Speer, who works specifically with competitive athletes on their athletic abilities as part of his “DevelopAthletes” project. Whether strength, speed or coordination, Kevin will help you to get to the next level. He has years of experience working with athletes in a wide variety of sports and was himself a Strength & Conditioning Coach at the University of Florida. In addition, he has prepared athletes such as Alexander Ehrensberger and Fabian Weitz for their NCAA D1 careers in American football.
