Hi Pacific Point Parents! The Fall SATs are coming 🙂 Let’s get your family ready to CONQUER them.

Thank you for this privilege.

I’m Matt Hallock, Lead SAT Conqueror, former English teacher, and someone who believes wholeheartedly in your students.
And with Conquer the Test, my vision is simple: To bring your family confidence, peace, and a wide-open future by mentoring your student into their God-given potential and into SAT Conqueror-ship.

For you, the Parent


When I started teaching the SAT about 10 years ago, I had no idea what it would turn into. I started as a young kid just out of college, needing a second job on top of my full-time job and my seminary classes, so that I could support my newly pregnant wife and myself…all the way on the other side of the country.

I was a smart kid, did well on tests, and, on a whim, applied for a job at a tutoring center. That center specialized in coaching the SAT, so to get hired I had to take the test.

I’ve always been more of an English guy, so I told them, “Well, I could help kids on the Reading and Writing sections, but the Math? Doubt it.”

When my scores came back:

750 Reading/Writing
800 Math

They said, “You’ll be fine.” And thus my SAT career began.

But over the years, after working with dozens of students and their families, I saw a problem. These kids were hurting. They were:

• stressed.
• depressed.
• under insane amounts of pressure from friends, bad thoughts in their own head, teachers, the system in general, college deadlines, loving and well-meaning parents…you name it.
• doubting if they were good enough.
• doubting if they were worth anything beyond their academic performance.

In my 10 years of SAT work, I’ve seen so many kids get pummeled by all kinds of negative thinking:
• “I have to get this grade on that test in order to be accepted…loved…worth it…successful.”
• “I’m not a good test-taker.”
• “I hate tests.”
• “I’m not smart.”
• “I wish people liked me more.”
• “I wish I was good enough.”

What REAL ultimate good would I be doing them if I didn’t get at their heart?

Jesus loves these kids like crazy way beyond any test score. And they need way more than just some SAT strategies to help them unlock an archaic reading passage or a tricky math problem.

If I stopped there, then the problems that got them into the place of academic struggle would just continue. And what good would my coaching be if I helped them academically but left their spirit hurting and crumbling?

These kids needed to know Jesus and his love for them. They needed to receive his healing in their hearts and minds.

These kids needed a new perspective, a new way of seeing themselves, God, and the world.

They needed to be shown that they are not victims of ANY of the stuff that has come against them…including all things academically challenging. They needed to know that they are CONQUERORS–MORE than conquerors, according to Romans.


Enter…Conquer the Test

In addition to all of the SAT content, which is all the best strategy you can find on the market, I give my students a brand new way of seeing themselves and their lives…I show them what God thinks of them.

We cover:

• How to put the SAT in its proper perspective so as to begin to crumble test anxiety.
• Practical, in the moment, exercises to quickly decrease test anxiety.
• Your student’s worth, and whether or not they fit the definition of someone who is WORTHY of … someone’s love, investment, time, and energy.
• How your student can begin to retrain their mind to think DIFFERENTLY.
• The power of the words they choose to align with.
• Life-changing truths that God declares over your kids that directly impact their test performance.

Here’s a breakdown of the class, especially the SAT strategy…

Yes, I think I’m definitely keeping up with the coursework, and the strategies we’ve discussed so far have been incredibly helpful for both time management and cutting down avoidable mistakes that I believe have been responsible for the wrecking of my scores in the past. So far I’m finding the class to be very helpful to me; from the practical instruction to the structure it provides, I’m glad I decided to take it. I cannot say how valuable it is to me to have direct instruction from someone who genuinely cares for us as students and people, and I thank you for that.

I learned so much from Matt. Absolutely the best tutor I have ever had. He helped me to jump my SAT score from a 1440 to a 1860! His sessions were well planned and he provided lots of great study materials. Also, my writing and reading skills increased considerably. Thank you so much Matt!


So far I am really enjoying your class and getting a lot out of it. Thank you for all you’ve done so far, this class is 100% worth it.


Matt tutored my daughter. He is a fabulous tutor as well as a very nice person. It was a great experience for my daughter and she increased her total SAT score by 190 points.


What a pleasure it has been to watch Matt at work with our son! He is so impressive and knowledgeable. We interviewed 4 different tutors while looking for an instructor to help our son with the SATs. After all the interviews, my son and husband looked at me and said, “there is no comparison, no question…. Matt Hallock is the one”. His process for teaching the SAT test was very specific, with individual needs being addressed with each step. Matt was responsible and reliable and worked very well with our son. I would recommend Matt to ANY student or level. My son’s score increased by nearly 300 points!! THANK YOU MATT!!
