Amy, a formally certified and licensed secondary-education teacher, received her degree from John Carroll University. She began her career in test preparation over 26 years ago working for Princeton Review. After gaining valuable knowledge and experience as a part-time tutor, she turned that passion into a career with Townsend Learning Centers. She quickly assumed the role of Director of Test Preparation Services, creating, managing, and administering all aspects of Townsend’s test preparation programs.
After leaving Townsend in 2006, Amy began Seeley Test Preparation Services – meeting the test preparation needs of several hundred students annually in the Greater Cleveland area. As demand grew for Amy’s assistance in improving test scores, Seeley Test Pros was born in 2012 with the addition of tutors trained in the successful methods and strategies of Amy’s experience. Amy’s knowledge of standardized tests is unsurpassed. Her methods and techniques for navigating through the ACT and SAT, as well as many other standardized exams, guarantee students who apply themselves and are committed to her methodology to obtain higher scores. “It takes 20 years to get as good as Amy!” writes one counselor. “I trust her with any one of my students.” Amy has helped over ten thousand students to maximize their potential, leading to admission to highly selective colleges and universities, receiving lucrative scholarships, or achieving National Merit status based upon high test scores.
Amy is the founder and co-host of Tests and the Rest: College Admissions Industry podcast, which discusses the latest issues in testing, admissions, learning, and education with leading experts.
Amy has received ACT Certified Educator (ACE) status in all of the six categories offered: Basics, English, Math, Reading, Science, and Writing. She is only one of a handful of ACT tutors nationwide to do so. She is also an ACE trainer of educators nationwide.
Amy is a co-founder of the National Test Preparation Association and a member of its inaugural Board of Directors. She has presented at national test preparation conferences and is a contributor to the Test Prep Tribe, a national collaboration of test prep professionals.
