How to Ask Questions

Have a question about the SAT, ACT, or anything else? Send it to me and I may answer it on the show! Just email your question to


A few ground rules:

  1. I answer questions about the SAT; ACT; SAT Subject Tests in Math, Chemistry, and Literature; AP Calculus, AP English, AP Chemistry; College Essays & College Admissions. If your question isn’t from one of these topics, feel free to send it to me
  2. If you are sending me a specific problem from a test, please include the Test Source, image of the question, and the answer.
  3. The more specific your question, the better! Questions like, “How can I raise my score from X to Y?” or, “How can I improve on Critical Reading?” are too broad for me to give a quick, useful answer. Questions like, “I seem to have trouble with Two-Part Reading questions and always make this particular mistake – any advice?” are better.
  4. While I can’t answer every question on the show, I will try my best to reply to your email.
