About First Choice

First Choice Prep was founded in 2010 by Nick Wierda. Since then, Nick and his team of expert tutors and test prep professionals have helped more than 1,000 students realize their academic potential and achieve their goals on a variety of standardized tests. With twelve years of experience, Nick has logged more than 10,000 hours of tutoring and test prep. He has learned these tests inside and out, and he now regularly scores 1600 on the SAT and 36 on the ACT. He has also had the privilege of seeing the methodologies that work and the ones that need improvement, and, with that in mind, he has worked to create and continually improve First Choice Prep's curricula.

The secrets to First Choice Prep's success are the strengths of our pedagogy, the knowledge and talent of our tutors, the constant evolution of our teaching methodology and our single-minded dedication to helping our students achieve their full academic potential. First Choice Prep has also formed partnerships with several educators, learning specialists, and college counselors, in an effort to offer our students as comprehensive a service as possible.
