The Franklin Report

Zinc was recently reviewed by The Franklin Report. This prestigious resource for the very best of New York awarded Zinc 5 stars, their highest rating.

In the world of high-stakes, high-level test prep, Zinc stands out for its holistic philosophy. Founded by former teacher Matt Bardin, the company takes the radical approach of treating standardized testing as a learning opportunity, not just another hurdle to jump over en route to the Ivy League. Bardin preaches a methodology based on close reading comprehension, sharpened focus and time management—not shortcuts and tricks. Clients say the methodology works wonders for the all-important SAT and ACTs, and that it has the knock-on benefit of improving students in other areas.

….References we spoke with were all extremely positive on the value, saying it was “worth every penny.” The company comes with great individual references, as well as some institutional recognition: Zinc partners with Trinity on the Upper West Side to offer test prep to their students. Those who expect the best (and can afford it) tend to find Zinc “an amazing company, much better than the competition.”
