Grantly is a Nashville local and University School of Nashville alum. Soon after Graduating from Dartmouth College with a degree in economics and studio art, Grantly founded GRANITE®. Fascinated by understanding student motivation, productivity, and goal creation, Grantly has contributed to research studying factors impacting motivation and decision-making (specifically as it pertains to mindfulness) at both Dartmouth College and Vanderbilt University. Grantly likes to refer to these factors as “Test Taking Intangibles”®; he works to ensure all students at his center have a rich understanding of both standard academic content (math, grammar, etc.) as well as the intangibles of test taking (calm, focus, nutrition, etc.) Grantly is a certified KORU™ mindfulness instructor and has taught mindfulness classes for stress reduction and academic performance at his home base (GRANITE®), as well as Vanderbilt University and Dartmouth College. When not working with students, Grantly plays in a couple Nashville area tennis leagues; he loves cooking Indian food, charcoal drawing, and playing guitar. Most of all, Grantly loves talking with families and students about how they can achieve their academic goals!
Grantly Neely's Testimonials Success Stories Good Vibes
I’ve used Granite test prep, and my score went up 4 points from a 30 to a 34!!! I HIGHLY recommend this service for anyone trying to improve their score. Thank you so much!!!
Grantly has helped our son prepare well beyond what he had imagined, and the results far exceeded our expectations. We would refer him and his company to anyone preparing to take the ACT. He is professional, courteous, accommodating, and knows how to customize the learning process for each individual student. Thank You Grantly.
I would highly recommend Grantly for SAT/ACT test prep. He is very smart and professional, and has provided a well-thought out, individually tailored program. He worked closely with our son to customize the prep and to focus on improvement in specific skills and types of problems where help was most needed. And we have been impressed by his general guidance regarding test-taking strategies and mindset. We have been extremely happy with the results and the process.
I highly recommend Grantly Neely of Granite Test Prep. He worked with a group of students at the school where I work and provided excellent tutoring. Despite it being a large group, he provided individual feedback and encouragement, teaching them tips to the test to maximize their time. I look forward to seeing the improvements in their scores when they come out in a couple of weeks. Thanks again!
We've been extremely happy with Granite for ACT/ SAT test prep. Highly recommend Grantly! He's fantastic. Our next three children will definitely work with him.
Grantly and his team at Granite are fantastic. They have helped my senior with tutoring for the ACT and with the college application/scholarship process. The transition to virtual learning was seamless along with the process that has followed since. The staff is patient, very knowledgeable and eager to help. Great choice for anyone looking for any kind of help for you tutoring needs as well as anything related to college entrance.
We have absolutely enjoyed working with Granite Education for our daughter's ACT prep needs. Each person that we worked with was great. We were also offered flexible scheduling to fit our busy schedules which made the process much better. And the end results were great. We have found that investing in test prep on the front end can save THOUSANDS in college tuition on the back in. Now it's time to return to Granite for daughter #2.
