Josh Aronovitch, Owner ACE Sat Prep
Josh is a proud product of the Washington Township School district. After graduating from the George Washington University (2000) and Harvard Law School (2003) Josh worked for the law firms of Jenner and Block and Pepper Hamilton. Josh left law practice to launch ACE in order to give back to the community that has given him so much and to help others achieve their dreams.
Since launching ACE in 2008, Josh has worked with over 1400 students and the results speak for themselves:
"I have been more than 10 years in standardized test related teaching experience and have helped countless students achieve their college dreams."
Why Choose Our Coaching?
There are a large number of options out there to help you prepare to score your best on the SAT.
ACE offers you the best of multiple approaches and will become a true partner in your success.
A Personalized Approach
Scoring your best on the SAT requires a personalized approach, but most can’t afford the $3000-$5000 one-on-one tutoring packages offered by our competitors. Small group coaching with an intuitive and empathetic teacher can provide focused individualized attention at a fraction of the cost.
A Better Teacher Means Better Results
As of 2016 our courses are all taught by Josh Aronovitch, an experienced SAT instructor with over 10,000 hours of standardized test teaching experience. It is a founding principle of ACE that all our teachers will have ridiculously high standardized test scores. Why take a course where your instructor scored less than you want to? But excellence in standardized test taking is not enough. All our teachers will always have substantial teaching experience and natural teaching ability. Why take a chance on a course with a teacher that has never taught a day in his life? Why take a chance with a teacher that is not exceptional at the art and science of helping students to excel?
More instructional time plus more one on one attention means higher scores
ACE offers five, 4 hour lessons. That doesn't even account for the unlimited ability to "free repeat" the classes as much as the students needs or wants, as well as available video replays of the class at no additional charge.
One-on-one tutoring is also available for an additional charge.
No one should be held back from their dreams by financial difficulty
That’s why we offer significant discounts and extended payment plans based on financial need.

The answer to this one is easy – NOW.
Studies and anecdotal evidence show – the average student’s SAT score goes up each time he or she takes the SAT. Some of this is due to familiarity and reduced anxiety, some is due to a subconscious understanding of the patterns on which the SAT is based. The more you practice, on the real thing, or in controlled SAT conditions, the better.
When ACE founder Josh Aronovitch was in high school, he took the SAT 4 times.
(When Josh took the SAT it was on a 400-1600 point scale, adding his 800 SAT II Writing score gives you the equivalent score on today’s SAT).
The bottom line is this, it is never too early to start preparing for the SAT. While the math captures some of what is taught in high school algebra and geometry, all the math you need will be covered in the course.
Plus, once you are an ACE student, you are a student for life. You can come back and repeat individual classes or the entire course as many times as you want, for free. Josh will be available to answer your questions until you get into the college of your dreams, whether you first take the course as a Senior, or even as a Freshman.
Your score on the SAT is a huge part of the equation as to whether you get into the college of your dreams. It is ridiculous that a single standardized test has so much riding on it. That it means that much for your future…but it does.
That gives you two choices: 1) whine and complain or 2) do everything in your power to prepare and ACE the SAT.
The good news is that the SAT is a very teachable test. It is standardized. That means it is the same in key important ways, time after time, year after year. By studying the patterns of the SAT, you can prepare to answer those questions correctly, to anticipate what will be thrown at you.
But you don’t have the time to study SAT after SAT after SAT to find those patterns and figure out what they mean. That’s what we have done for you. The ACE SAT PREP course is designed to give you the tools you need to understand and master the SAT.
We know how valuable your time is. That is why we don’t give you all the same boring hours of homework like our competitors. Instead, all practice exercises are personally tailored and assigned based on your strengths and weaknesses. That is why we take the time to get to know you, how you learn, how you think and how you can be best prepared.
Some students prepare on their own, out of a book. But we have found that the time management, personalized attention, discipline and diverse approaches offered in a well designed and highly personalized course offers students their best chance at success.
A Special Note for Parents
You are placing a great deal of trust in me by placing your son’s or daughter’s future in my hands. I take this responsibility very seriously. That is why I consider it my mission to ensure that your child makes it into the college of his or her dreams. That means learning how they learn, dealing with issues of test anxiety, and allowing them to repeat parts of the course as often as they need to in order to master the content and strategies I teach. It’s also why I offer payment plans, and need based discounts to the course price. But it also means I help more than just the SAT score. This includes encouraging them to take challenging courses that look good on their transcript. It includes providing an extra set of experienced eyes on their application essays. It includes helping them in their college search. I am willing to work hard to be your partner in helping your children to achieve the goals and dreams their high school education has prepared them for. If there are any questions I can answer for you, please don’t hesitate to call me.
