From the Owner

I grew up in Union County and graduated from Weddington High School prior to attending the University of South Carolina.  There, I covered over 200 events as a reporter for the Daily Gamecock,, and on the Rivals network.


In the course of covering hundreds of high school athletes, I found the vast majority had ample on-field training. In addition to school coaching staffs, plenty of private strength/conditioning/skills trainers are available for individual instruction. However, I also found a pervasive lack of academic resources given to the athletic community in the Carolinas and Tennessee. Athletes are expected to keep up with increasingly more demanding paperwork and rigid GPA/ACT/SAT requirements that most tutors do not oftenthemselves understand. Additionally, many tutors often fail to recognize the type of work athletes put into their sport. There is often a lack of understanding between the athletic and academic communities.


To bridge this gap, I created PREP to help athletes in Tennessee and the Carolinas in their academic endeavors. My door is always open; I want to go above and beyond to help students succeed whatever their goals may be. To see how PREP can help, check out our Services.

PREP fills the gaps in the high school athlete's experience, offering resources such as tutoring, SAT Prep and social media training in a sports setting. Athletes study alongside other athletes as they work toward their common goal of receiving a college scholarship. Put simply, PREP exists to help the athlete succeed in all walks of life. From the lacrosse goalie with a dream of playing for a prestigious academic institution to the star quarterback with scholarship offers from across the country to the back-up midfielder simply trying to raise her SAT score, PREP helps athletes excel off the field.
