Bill Ackerman has been helping students prepare for the GMAT, GRE, LSAT, CBEST, ACT, SAT and SAT Subject Tests since the Reagan administration. Beginning in 1986 with the Princeton Review Los Angeles office as an SAT verbal instructor, Bill went on to add SAT math and the graduate school entrance exams to his teaching repertoire and also served as the site director of the Palos Verdes and Encino teaching sites. In 1993, he joined the UCLA Extension faculty where he continues to teach preparation courses for the GMAT, GRE and LSAT, as well as serving as an online instructor for the Certificate in College Counseling program. In 2006, Bill received that same certificate from UCLA. Bill also owns and operates an educational consulting service called ACCESS, which he opened in 2002 to provide students with guidance in the college and graduate school application process. He has a master’s degree from UC Irvine and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana – Champaign.
