Carl is an excellent tutor. We hired him for sat prep plus his ability to help our son catch up on his studies. He is very knowledgeable on what kids need help on and how to engage them. Our son loves working with him and wants to learn. We chose Carl because he has tremendous experience as an educator plus has an east coast background which was extremely important to us. He has proven to be a wise choice and we are so happy to be working with him. A month into this we are very happy. As parents, we have made the right decision. Carl is an excellent teacher. He is tough, challenging and inspiring. Even as two ivy-league graduates, we respect his advice on our son in regards to grammar and literature. Overall, we are extremely pleased with our decision.

Jeff helped us out with SAT prep. He was always on time - literally on the dot. His service is top notch. We were looking for a competitive program and have been burned by Compass. Jeff is a professional and got the job done. From beginning to end, a 350 point rise in score.

It was a great experience. She provided learning tools on the first day. That included the SAT book as well as vocabulary cards. She is worth the investment.

We are very happy with the tutoring my son received for the SAT. He needed help with both the math and English sections. Arbor knew exactly what to do for the new SAT.

Chris is an awesome math and SAT tutor! He's been tutoring our teenage daughter for a year in math, and recently started prepping her for the SAT as well. He relates well to teens, and he's great at honing in on whatever she needs help with in math. If you want to make math homework stress-free for you and your student, it's well worth the money!

Jenny tutored both of my boys. She was always courteous, and prepared. I first found her looking g for a SAT Tutor. She reviewed work and offered constructive assistance without doing the work for them. I used Jenny for 2 and 1/2 years. With my younger son. We recommend her to friends who have also used her tutoring. The convenience of having her is great so my teenagers are not meeting in a public coffee shop or library. I was able to be active in recommendations when needed.

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 !

For the past 5 years, I have been with Kevin Turner. From the very start, he was always supportive and helpful to everything I have done. Now, 5 years later, I am graduating Santiago High School, valedictorian of my class, accepted to UCLA, UC Berkeley, Johns Hopkins, as well as being waitlisted to Harvard and Brown. If not for the help that Kevin had given me in both SAT and Calculus, I know that I would not be able to say that I have achieved so much in my high school career. With help from Kevin, I found my SAT math score improve from 640, to 780, missing only 2 problems on the entire SAT math section. Kevin is a genuine, kind, and intelligent individual that I am more than thankful to call my teacher and my friend.

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.

About

For over a decade, I have been helping students achieve SAT scores that allow them to apply to their colleges of choice with confidence through quality one-on-one tutoring. One-on-one SAT tutoring produces the best results, and is far more effective than group classes. Whether the student has taken the test once, or is taking it for the first time, a few one-on-one sessions before the exam can make a big difference. An excellent tutor has far more than just mastery of the test material. They are warm, friendly, patient, and can teach the material in the student's own language so that they learn. Years of tutoring full-time have allowed me to cultivate these good qualities. Many of my test prep clients keep me as a subject tutor long after the test. Thank you for reading my post and I wish you success! Roozbeh
