    Matty Steiner

    Matty is a Senior Director at Compass Education Group, a provider of one-on-one online test preparation and tutoring that works with thousands of students nationwide. Prior to joining Compass, Matty obtained their MA from the University of Chicago and a BA from UC Santa Cruz (Go, Slugs!). They have over thirteen years of experience in the testing industry and are regularly invited by counseling and admission professionals to explain the latest updates to the testing landscape.

    Eric Anderson

    Eric Anderson grew up in the Chicago suburbs and graduated from the University of Illinois. In 2015, while working in film and TV, Eric joined Compass’s Southern California team as a math tutor. He enjoyed the one-on-one tutoring experience so much that he made it his goal to bring Compass into the Midwest. Now, as the director of Compass Chicago, Eric hires, trains, and oversees a team of several dozen local tutors who work both online and in-home to help students achieve their admission testing goals. He’s excited to “talk testing” again with Warren Township families!

    Praise for Our IEC Symposia

    I appreciate the integrity of Compass. I never worry that my families are being oversold or offered unrealistic promises. I recommend Compass to students who have test anxiety, timing issues, need to move their scores by a few points at the top of the scale, or are trying to make huge leaps. And the results speak for themselves.

    Anne Holmdahl, IECA Member, NACAC, HECA, PNACAC & IECA Professional Member (WA)

    As an IEC, staying on top of the trends and changes related to the standardized testing landscape today is paramount. The guidance and expertise offered to IECs by Compass through workshops, presentations, and resources are essential to professional development.

    Laura Blanche, HECA/IECA/PACAC Member (PA)

    I trust Compass because they put integrity first, above sales or simply gaining another client. Compass is the leader in providing intelligent, well-researched advice on test prep. When a family chooses to work with Compass, I know I have a partner that makes me look good as well.

    Steven Mercer, ED.D., Former IECA Board Member & Vice President of Ethics (CA)

    Compass is my ‘go to’ resource for solid, reliable information on testing and admissions requirements. I value Compass as an educational partner, and it is on the top of my list for students who are looking for online test prep to fit their schedules. The Compass App and blog help me be the best consultant for my clients.

    Wendie Lubic, HECA & NACAC Member (DC)

    With a blend of humor, data, and facts, Compass' presentation offers much-needed clarity to the testing landscape. My students and families have already benefited from the information and resources I have passed along. Thank you Compass for making it a priority to keep IECs up-to-date on the latest testing research.
