Affordable online resources in math and science - for anyone
Hi, my name is Dr. David Partyka (click here to view LinkedIn profile) and I am the sole creator of the Test Boost web application (to read more about Test Boost, click here). This site is intended to serve as an affordable supplement to tutoring for any subject in math or science. As a teacher and a tutor, it has been my experience that many (if not all) students, if given the opportunity, would be provided with as many practice problems (plus meaningful feedback) as possible in order to maximize readiness for quizzes and exams.

Furthermore, Test Boost incorporates elements of social learning into the user experience. Test Boost users can form study groups, challenge other users to try and solve difficult questions, and receive recognition for exceptional performance on the Test Boost site, making learning a fun experience, not a chore. Give Test Boost a try and I promise you will love it.
