Carl lead a 4 week SAT Prep Course for a group of 8-10 low-income youth with our non-profit organization in Santa Monica. Carl was a phenomenal instructor. Carl successfully explained the structure of the SAT, and the strategies necessary to score well. His warmth, humor and high energy kept our youth engaged, and reduced their anxiety about the test. Carl is also highly receptive to feedback, and can teach the course in groups as well. We hope to work with Carl in the future again.
She is a very good SAT and ACT tutor. She also helped me with my college apps.
My son went to Joyee for about a month for ACT prep. He thought Joyee knows ACT inside out! Joyee is a non nonsense guy and always straight to the point. He felt the sessions with Joyee were always very productive. After one month sessions with Joyee my son's ACT score went up 6 points! We are already planning to send our younger son to Joyee in a few years. Thank you, Joyee!
We just recently hired Daniel. So far, he was exceptional at explaining his services and listening to my son's academic needs. We hired him in preparation for the ACT. Daniel is customizing the ACT tutoring in relation to our son's learning style. My son was very pleased with his first session with Daniel, and learned so much about strategies and the break down of the ACT, all in just one session. My son looks forward to continue working with Daniel.
We chose Elite and were so happy we did! My son struggled in math and he needed more support than the school offered. College prep is tough, I couldn't even help him! Haha Well, we called Elite and Eric matched him up with Tony. We liked that Tony came to our house for a free session before I had to commit to ordering sessions. I always wondered how that worked so you know your kid will for sure like the tutor and want to learn! We're very pleased, thanks again.
Receiving tutoring for GMAT test prep. Steve is very friendly, knowledgeable, and gives solid, realistic advice. Will definitely recommend to all of my friends/anyone who needs a great tutor!
The ACT prep with Lawrence has proven to be worth every minute for my daughter. I'm relieved to know they'll be here to help my son in a couple of years, too!
This has been a very positive experience. We hired Jasmine to tutor on the ACT. Jasmine is professional, attentive and has already helped a great deal. We've signed up for ten more sessions. Jasmine was well prepared, offered great insight and we look forward to seeing a significant increase in the ACT score.
My daughter needed to raise her ACT score. She felt so comfortable working with Esmeralda. She raised her score 3 points on her next ACT and now has a full ride basketball scholarship.
Mr. Reid has helped me raise my grade from an F to an A in Pre-Calculus. Furthermore, he helped me train for the ACT. His tutoring is just phenomenal!
Cindy is an absolute visionary. I am a senior in high school, and I met Cindy a few months before I began this school year. My strengths academically are mainly in reading, writing, social studies, and philosophy, but Cindy has enhanced my knowledge and appreciation for mathematics, science, and my capabilities in problem solving as a whole. When I first met Cindy, I was in desperate need of a math tutor, but what I received was more than I could have ever imagined. Aside from her outstanding mathematical capabilities, Cindy has served as my mentor, ultimate problem solver, entrepreneurial guru, and ultimate inspiration throughout my college prep and application process. As a fellow performer, and actress, Cindy also has helped me explore my passion for theatre, and expand it to become a flourishing intrigue with anthropology, psychology, and motivational speaking. She is literally the reason that I am now travelling as a motivational speaker/ Body Positive facilitator to youth, ranging from middle school to high school. In offering her invaluable time, ambitious mindset, and incredibly compassionate demeanor, she has allowed me to find my true passions, and encourage others to do the same. Furthermore, Cindy is beyond this world amazing. Whether to call her an angel, an oracle, a goddess, a reincarnated Albert Einstein, or any other form of awe, I am not worthy to concretely say. However, I can attest that Cindy has absolutely changed my vision for myself and the world around me, my societal views and aspirations, as well as having enhanced my mathematical and test taking capabilities. Truly, Cindy is the most wonderful, kind, creative, talented, and intelligent essence, one could ever hope to meet or aspire to become.
Lola's SAT math prep tutoring was excellent. Her teaching style is patient, encouraging, insightful, and informative.
I started working with Stable Genius Prep in January to prepare for the General GRE. We assessed right away that the Quantitative material was my weak spot, and where I'd need the most help. I'm the type of person who really has to be able to understand something before I can master it, and I don't naturally think mathematically. In other words I can't just memorize formulae and when to apply them. Andrew was excellent with this. Even when I got answers right, he would make sure to go over with me what the principles were behind the problem. He has clearly had much experience tutoring pupils. Perhaps what had the most impact on me, and on my desire to work hard, was the patience he exhibited; it may have not even registered with him, but I noticed it. In the beginning I worked at an excruciatingly slow pace through everything from Arithmetic to Statistics and Probability. It took two hours just to get through ten problems. By the end of our prep, I was able to work through the same number of questions in about 15-20 minutes, and at a high level of difficulty. While my essay writing is normally solid, it was difficult to exhibit that within the 30 minute time limit. Andrew reviewed my practice essays with me and really helped me to develop strategies to write strong essays that follow the test instructions within the time allotted. Ultimately my Math score went from the 48th percentile up to the 83rd percentile! I couldn't be happier with my experience, and with the results we were able to get. I say "we" because by the end I felt like we were a team, with Andrew as my coach. He is a master of the material, and he understands how to teach it effectively. I definitely recommend Stable Genius Prep to anyone looking not only to get over a certain threshold, but to really maximize their potential and do as well as they possibly can!
Best SAT and ACT Tutors anywhere.
I first spoke with Victor about AP biology tutoring for my son. Victor always replied quickly and gave my son a full study plan for his class and the AP test. We started with tutoring at home and also had a few online sessions using Skype and Victor's whiteboard app which really helped my son, especially when he was getting over a flu. My son said he learned more in a month with Victor than he learned in a semester in class. I also called Victor again for ACT test prep for my daughter. He connected me with one of his great tutors, Josh, who was also patient and professional. My daughter really increased her scores in English, Reading, and Science thanks to Josh and Victor's guidance. I'd highly recommend Victor and his team for AP and ACT test prep. Thank you both!
Excellent SAT and ACT tutoring.
I came to Oliver at Verbal Ninja ahead of a big speech that had career and even life changing potential. I was speaking to a large group of fellow doctors, several of whom were what you might call “celebrity doctors.” Frankly, I wanted to upstage them. I myself have an acting background but have always had a lot of stage fright for public speaking. I worked with Oliver over the month leading up to the big event. I knew what I wanted to say, just not quite how to say it. He made my words sound like nothing I’ve ever heard before—yes, that good. Yet it still sounded like me…I felt comfortable and spontaneous. He sort of gave me the voice that I always thought I had inside, if that makes any sense. He also coached my delivery, voice, gestures, movement, eye contact, etc. etc. His tricks to conquer stage fright—especially the psychological aspect—are brilliant. The result? I think I killed it that night. Even my billionaire friend who came to see me said I spoke better than a lot of people he sees that speak on a regular basis. Even the owner of the company had this to say: “Thanks for everything, the event was great and we were very happy that you gave that speech, it was amazing! Not only the way you presented (like an actor) but also the content was very emotional, some tears were shed from Melissa.“ People came up to me afterwards and shared how I changed their view on aesthetics and really motivated them. All the “famous doctors” who spoke alongside me on the panel were super impressed as well. In short, Oliver came to me highly recommended. He leaves me even more highly recommended. If the stakes are high, he’s the guy.
I worked with Mr. Pestle during my senior year of high school in the school play. Despite never meeting him before, nor having any previous experience in a play or drama before, he showed a level of kindness and encouragement towards me that it is extremely rare in teachers of any form. His level of enthusiasm and obvious passion for what he does makes him a complete joy to be around, and also makes the experience for all involved much more inspiring. He works hard every session to get the most amount of work complete at the highest level of quality, while also maintaining a steady head and never losing his temper. One can always look forward to a class or session with him offering something new and intriguing to learn, and at the same time keep the atmosphere fun, yet with a high standard of professionalism. There is never a time working with him where anyone felt excluded, and he was always open to new ideas or even constructive criticism from subordinates. Given the opportunity, I would work with him again in a heartbeat. His kind and compassionate demeanor is contagious to be around, and his display of a high amount of knowledge and level of professionalism for his craft and trade gives comfort to all involved knowing they are in good hands. I would highly recommend working with Mr. Daniel Pestle to anyone. A great teacher, and a great friend!
Hands in the air for the BEST LSAT TUTOR PERIOD. I was weary of spending more money but I heard she was especially gifted with teaching applied logic to people who "should" be scoring higher but aren't. After our 3 sessions, we changed my entire approach and I am officially +11 from last summer. I told her she should double her price, she changed the trajectory of my life --I'm going to Vandy! She can take the most complex abstract concepts and convey them in a way that suddenly *clicks* without any condescence or sublte remarks for having taken two paid-for prep classes already. She's a Polly-Anna for late-bloomers/mom's/40+ and everyone else going back to school and I highly recommend her.
