As a private tutor for the past fifteen years, Mauri Artz has met many great kids who performed well in
school but who were not great test takers. Some of these students suffered from test anxiety, or maybe
found test prep material boring and too complicated. Many teenagers simply did not fully understand
that preparing for the ACT® and improving their ACT® scores could change their lives, through college
acceptances or through the receipt of more scholarship or “merit” money.
Simple Tutoring® was born out of the desire of nationally acclaimed ACT® tutor Mauri Artz to provide
easy access to excellent, proven, successful test prep methods to those students, at an affordable price.
Mauri, an attorney and an author, has tutored students privately at a fee of $150 per hour. In high
demand across the United States and in other countries, Mauri has developed a unique approach to test
prep that engages these type of students: those that even might, at times, be a little laid back about
It has always bothered Mauri that many of the students who could benefit most from her tutoring were
the very ones who could likely not afford her services, nor would they have easy access to find her
assistance. In fact, the wealthy students who can afford excellent tutors receive a huge advantage. Mrs.
Artz feels that after 15 years of profiting from this upside-down system, she is now devoted to “giving
back.” Her mission is to help all students prepare for the test, to improve enough to achieve admission
to college and/or to receive grants and scholarships, or to begin college without remediation. Therefore,
for every course sold on Simple Tutoring, she gives away a course to a needy student through her
Benefit Corporation, The Public Tutoring Initiative. To date, she has made her course available for free to
over 14,000 underserved kids.
Every point on the ACT® can make a difference. Students greatly benefit: at no risk, and with a minimal
investment, students may now reach for the stars and feel much more confident doing so.
