ACT ENGLISH Strategy Course Curriculum


Course Instructor: Nick LaPoma

aka Nick The Tutor

Owner of Curvebreakers

Juris Doctor, Benjamin N. Cardozo Law School

B.A. Psychology, Quinnipiac University

Nicholas LaPoma, aka "Nick The tutor," is the owner of Curvebreakers, a tutoring company on Long Island that helps students from all over the country prepare for standardized tests and improve their grades. While earning his law degree at Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York City, he began working for large tutoring companies, preparing middle school and high school students around the city for exams like the SHSAT, SAT, and ACT. He often felt their approach to test prep was too rigid, impersonal, and not adaptive to each student's learning style. Nick knew there was a better and more effective way to help students improve their test scores. A few years later in 2014, Nick founded Curvebreakers Test Prep and dedicated all his time and energy to preparing students for college. He personally scored in the 99th-percentile on the SAT.
