Who is TorchPrep?

Secret Sauce = Provoke + Instruct + Entertain

  • Fact: Tests are boring
  • Fact: Standardized tests are extremely boring
  • Fact: Test prep is unbearably, horrifically, unacceptably boring

Provoke: We push students to develop an innovative, creative, and strategic approach to both education and life as a whole.

Instruct: We deliver content in a clear, concise fashion that the listener can comprehend and build upon. Sound instruction is paramount for our success, and it is a hill we die on.

Entertain: We bring large amounts of energy, stories, and interpersonal skills to the table. Our zeal is enough to carry students through the entire Boot Camp.
