I can't speak highly enough of Joyee and his team. They were able to work with my son's busy schedule and help my son with his prep work. It's next to impossible to get a perfect score, but my son did it thanks to Joyee's help. We will be going forward to college counseling help because I know that Joyee has quite a bit of experience working through the admissions process. He's already given us some amazing advice, and I wish we had met him sooner. I can't recommend Thinque Prep highly enough!Jun 6, 2018Verified
College Admissions Counseling
Thinque Prep was an amazing asset to my family and I. This was my first child and I was extremely confused with the all the rules and requirements that colleges have these days. I met with Joyee and he helped clarify everything. He walked me through a timeline for testing, course selection. He help set up my son for a proper testing schedule. We talked through colleges in depth. He connected me with a world class research opportunity for my son. He also hosted a essay workshop over the summer where he invited actual college representatives to work with the students. They read through his essays and gave him constructive criticism. I can't thank him enough for all his help, and we will be continuing to use his services -- in both test preparation and college guidance -- for all my children.Apr 4, 2016Verified
Helped our son out a ton in a college calculus 2 class. Built a relationship, earned trust, got our son to do the work, and brought his grade up a lot. We'd hire Joyee again and probably will. So that our son can start a semester with him and hopefully avoid needing his help when performance is not so good.Jun 3, 2017VerifiedTest Preparation Experts (SAT: 1600, ACT: 36)'s reply
Thanks for your thoughtful review. Jared was actually quite good at math. I think something about the instructional method wasn't clicking with him. However, once I explained it, he picked it up incredibly quickly.
I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience with Joyee and his team. We've been working with them for quite a while and they've helped us with math tutoring, test preparation, and now going into our senior year, they're helping us prepare for college applications. More specifically, my son's score on the ACT jumped 6 points after 2 months of working with Joyee and Robert. I can't recommend them enough!May 31, 2016Verified
Joyee of Thinque Prep was able to offer comprehensive services not just in tutoring, but in test preparation and college counseling. He is extremely knowledgeable and able to help improve ACT and SAT scores. But, he also is very helpful on guiding the student into which types of schools would be a good fit for him/her. He and his team were able to work hard to help my son out. My son boosted his SAT scores high enough to qualify for a $19k scholarship at his number 1 college. Thanks so much!Feb 12, 2016Verified
