My son was looking to gain about 60 points to his SAT score in order to get into two Florida universities of his choice. Dr. Fikar assured us he could get him the 60 points plus some. The most recent January 2017 SAT scores just came out and my son scored 80 points higher. Aside from the promised results, Dr. Fikar was professional. He always responded in a timely manner, was on time for Skype sessions, gave the full allotted session time, and was very patient with my son. We found him late in the game and were fortunate to have 3 - 1.5 hour sessions just prior to the exam. I only wish we had found him earlier! ~ Marie Z., St Johns, FloridaFeb 24, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Dr. Fikar charges a flat hourly rate, and typically does not give discounts of any kind.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?My continuing education is to continue to take the Exams that I offer Tutoring for, and to continue to study and write books. There is no finer education than to master these extremely challenging tests.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I was a Physicist who enjoyed my work. However, while being a Professor at a University, I began taking the SAT and all of the other Standardized Tests every year and getting perfect scores, mostly for fun. I was also tutoring part time, and started to see how much fun it was to work one-on-one with students and help them achieve massive increases. So in 1995 I opened my first Learning Center and quit my day job, and the rest is history. I have written several Test Prep books, continue to take the Tests and score perfectly, and have watched hundreds of students achieve their highest scores possible. What could be more rewarding than that?
