Verified review

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.

Joyee is an exceptional standardized test tutor. I highly recommend him. I found Joyee after an exhaustive search for help with the PSAT/SAT/ACT for my son. My son's school recommended a large national test-prep company, but after investigating that option, we didn't think it was the right fit. My student already understands these tests and has some experience taking them; he needed a person to get him to the "next level" and not waste time going over basic review/prep. Joyee provides fast-paced and completely personalized instruction. He first diagnoses where a student is along the spectrum of readiness for these tests. He zones in on problem areas and has materials ready to strengthen these areas of weakness. My son has enjoyed working with Joyee and says their sessions have definitely increased his confidence for the upcoming tests. I appreciate so many things about having Joyee work with my son. Joyee is extremely intelligent, energetic, and dedicated; he knows what's he's doing and will provide concise, clear instruction; he has a good website where he exchanges files, keeps the tutoring materials organized, etc.; he doesn't waste time during online sessions (you will get your money's worth). I'd recommend Joyee for help with your student's test prep in any circumstances, but particularly if your child is scoring towards the top end of the scoring range and he/she wants that extra boost. Our family appreciates Joyee's assistance and feels it has been very beneficial to our son.

Dan was a life-saver! My son was up against finals in Physics and Math, we found Dan and he was working with my son within 24 hours and explaining concepts that had never been effectively taught.. My son walked into his exams with more confidence and understanding and for that we are very grateful.

I'm seventeen years old and took the new 2016 SAT test for the first time. My score was significantly lower than my GPA would indicate. I had several offers from tutors to assist in improving my SAT score. After reading the reviews and talking with several people, I choose to work with Sarah. I have had multiple sessions with her this summer. I highly recommend Sarah to be your tutor. She has a very pleasant personality and always makes sure you understand the current concept before moving on to another. She is very understanding of your schedule and will do whatever she can to work with you. I am ending my sessions only because to my pleasant surprise I have been offered an athletic scholarship after my senior year that will accept my current gpa and current SAT as completely satisfactory.

Cindy and everyone at Rainbow tutoring are some of the kindest individuals I have met. The wisdom Cindy bestowed on me while helping me through my college application process will be with my forever and I am so grateful. Cindy helped me figure out what I wanted in my college experience and gave me the tools to get myself there. She introduced schools that I wouldn't have seen myself at and helped me get myself to Santa Clara University. She is beyond inspirational and such an empowering woman that is a role model to any and all of her clients. Cindy and her team are smart, dedicated, and reliable- they are always able to help and are great mentors to have before going off out of high school and into a college or real life environment. Cindy especially is very clear and really walks you through the steps to understanding in both Math, Writing, and the SAT Prep. I am so thankful to have met and able to work with you guys !

I hired Ahmed for Math tutoring for my son who is taking the PSAT and SAT this coming fall. He had rave reviews about Ahmed. Ahmed was patient, incredibly knowledgeable, and able to explain the concepts to my son in an absorbable manner. I will continue using him for the rest of my son's high school math needs. Highly recommended.

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!

Victor is a genuine, intelligent, creative person, and an excellent tutor. I refer him with great confidence. Victor has an admirable ability to relate to different types of personalities and learning styles. He not only adapts his teaching to our daughters' unique situations, but seems excited by the challenge. Our children attend different high schools, and have their own unique talents and learning styles and challenges. One attends an academically rigorous private high school, while the other attends an academically challenging, local public school. Victor has tutored them both. Whether it's SAT tutoring or weekly math and bio, or a brush-up before finals, Victor is there. He is prompt, professional, highly competent and above all, energized by teaching. He asks questions. He does not spoon feed; rather, he takes the time to help our daughters discover the answers for themselves. My 17 year old earned a great SAT score, and a substantial 4-year scholarship to the university of her choice. She applied early-action to three schools, and gained admittance to them all. We credit Victor for helping her realize this dream. I now look forward to what my younger daughter will achieve, with his help, as he not only teaches her in the way she needs to be taught, but he cares. She knows this. He establishes a genuine relationship with his students; he helps them gain confidence, and trust themselves. I honestly cannot say enough about Victor, and the impact he has made on our family. He takes the worry and the (dare I say) struggle out of high school, creating space for my husband and I to be more supportive and less "annoying" to our children. It is a relief and a comfort to know such an intelligent, good person has our daughters' and therefore our own backs. Both of our girls' confidence and academic achievement have soared under Victor's tutelage.

    I wish I could give these guys 100 stars. Deb was extremely helpful. My son had a very low SAT score. Harry met with her a few hours every week.  His score jumped up. Arbor knew exactly what to do for his new SAT score and he got accepted to three Ivy League schools!!!. You can't ask for anything more. We are extremely happy with the results.
