Ready to learn the history, philosophy, and practice of an experienced professional in the test prep industry?

Meet Mike Settele, the founder of Settele Tutoring, an SAT prep company that specializes in creating user-friendly SAT resources. Mike has published thousands of hours of SAT lessons on his YouTube channel, which are watched every day by students around the world.

Mike began his SAT career while an undergraduate at Johns Hopkins University, where he studied political science and philosophy. He started as a Writing section tutor for Capital Educators, a test prep company that runs courses in the Baltimore-Washington metro area. After graduating, Mike became a full-time program director for Capital Educators, but he eventually found his true passion helping to create their curriculum for the new SAT in 2016.

Once the new test was released, Mike moved to Los Angeles and founded Settele Tutoring, shifting his focus to private tutoring so that he would have time to create new SAT materials. He has since published the “SAT Packets” study guides for both the Reading and Math sections of the exam, with new editions coming soon for the digital SAT. In fact, when he’s not tutoring, Mike can often be found sitting on Santa Monica Beach, writing SAT questions.
