Steve Sandweiss - Seattle, Tacoma
Steve Sandweiss has been helping students prepare for entrance exams to college, grad school, law school, and business school since 1991. For seven years he worked for Kaplan, the nation's largest test prep organization. In 1998, he decided that he could offer better quality courses at more affordable prices to Seattle-area students and formed Sandweiss Test Prep. He felt it was important to provide smaller class sizes and opportunities for individual attention for students to fully realize their test-taking potential.
