Quick reintroduction: My name is Alberto Howe, and I am the founder of Affordable College Solutions. At one time, you either needed me to help you or someone else boost scores for FSA equivalency, Bright Futures, or college admissions requirements. February 14th marked my 20th year preparing students for higher test scores and other wonderful accomplishments. You know me for not tooting my horn, but I will toot going forward because you’ve helped me along the way. To show my appreciation, I share the following and thank you. I truly love what I do. Here are some results from my students who have participated in Broward County Library’s free SAT/ACT programs. – Mr. Alberto

Since 2002, I have conducted SAT and ACT programs for Broward’s teens. Our very first program saw 7 students at Main Library. In the last few months, we have had over 2000 teens register for our recent intensive, live online programs, clearly showing that we are serving our community’s college admissions needs.
