The PEC Approach

The Potomac Education Center offers a tutorial program expressly designed to meet today’s challenges in standardized testing. We provide one-on-one tutoring for the PSAT, SAT and ACT. The individual needs of each student are carefully assessed and strategically addressed. Each student’s program is customized to meet his or her specific needs and includes a unique mix of reviewing academic material, remedial instruction, and test-taking strategies specific to the SAT and ACT.

The PEC Story

The Potomac Education Center was founded in 1997 to provide high-quality test prep that would maximize local students’ entrance exam scores. Originally a corporation run by Penny Heltzer, Founder and Director and Ferne Levine, Assistant Director, the PEC is now a cooperative of highly qualified educators with advanced degrees and years of expertise. Our tutors teach proven test-taking strategies that have been developed and refined to reflect the ever-changing competitive environment.  Our students benefit from our individually customized curricula, reaching their greatest potential and gaining confidence.


What: A full diagnostic ACT to determine if the ACT is the correct standardized test for students. This is a highly informative first step in the test prep process.
