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!
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.
I highly recommend Ryan. He really helped my son with preparing for the ACT test. My son learned and understood so much information in a very limited time. I will definitely request his services again in the future for my daughter. Thank you Ryan!
Jenny was a fantastic ACT tutor for my son! I could not have picked a better tutor. Jenny worked with him this summer and was able to quickly ascertain his areas of strength and areas for needed development for the ACT. She also quickly assessed his learning style and put together an efficient customized learning/tutoring plan and tutoring schedule for the summer that helped him make huge strides in both his strongest and weakest sections of the ACT, improving his already high comprehensive test results by 5 points thus far with another week of tutoring yet to go! In particular she did an amazing job tutoring him on the English portion, helping him go from a 26 to a 35 in that section! He has really enjoyed working with her and looked forward to their tutoring sessions. I will be signing my younger son up for ACT tutoring with Jenny next summer for sure!
I was signed up to take a Kaplan course for GMAT prep and was talking to a co-worker about it when they told me their story. They took one of the same Kaplan courses I was signed up to take and didn't get their desired GMAT score. In their second attempt, they signed up for private tutoring with John Easter, one of Elite Home Tutoring tutors, and their GMAT score improved by over 100 points. After hearing this story, I called to cancel my Kaplan class & signed up with Elite Home Tutoring, with a special request to work with John. During my studies, I decided that I wanted to take the GRE instead of the GMAT. I explained this to my tutor John and to Eric at Elite Home Tutoring and the change was so simple. John is not only skilled in GMAT prep but GRE prep as well. So the only thing that would need to change were the materials. If you're looking for the best resources for test prep I highly recommend Elite Home Tutoring. I have no complaints!
My teenage son thinks the world of Matt, as his experience, patience and intelligence has been a godsend... Big help for final exams, so we will schedule ACT prep after next week's testing...I cannot recommend Matt more highly! - EC, Del Mar
Travis worked one on one with my son in preparation for the ACT exam. Not only did they work out a great schedule, but they worked efficiently and hit the target goal right on. Throughout the entire process Travis kept my son motivated, but most importantly my son was very happy and never complained. Travis has a special demeanor and can connect with all personality types and ages in any setting. He is the best tutor we have come across and we would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone else in the future.
Best SAT and ACT Tutors anywhere.
Alara worked with my son to help him prepare for the ACT. She was very patient, explained some concept he was struggling with and gave him some good test strategies. We were very last minute and only had a month, but his score increased 2-3 points on each subject
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.
After being disappointed with an ACT classroom course, I asked my parents if I could look in to private tutoring. I searched Thumbtack and worked with TutorNerds.I loved the fact that the ACT tutoring was tailored to my personal needs. I didnt waste time on the parts of the test that I already knew. Instead, I was able to focus time on my problem areas. I would definitely recommend TutorNerds to other students like me.
Mary Ellen was an excellent tutor for both my daughter and son. Her ability to connect and adjust her teaching style to their differing personalities was amazing. When she first started working with them, it was mostly strengthening their grammar and writing strategies. She was especially helpful with the literature my daughter had to read for her AP lit class. Having her help them prep for the ACT as well as college essays was the best decision I made!
My daughter has very much enjoyed learning from Arliss. She is kind and supportive and my daughter has learned a lot about taking the SAT and is now studying with Arliss to take the ACT. We are awaiting her SAT score to see how much she improved.
I hired Gene last summer to help my son get a better grasp on math prior to going back to school. I was not disappointed at all. I had Gene come over twice a week for about 6 weeks or so. By the end my son was ready for 6th grade! The tutoring really helped my son's attitude and confidence going back to school. I asked my son recently if he would like Gene to prep him in July/Aug for 7th grade math and english. He actually said Yes! Gene must be something special if a kid is willing to give up a few of hours each week of his summer vacation for tutoring. Gene is real personable with kids and they definitely like learning from Him.
Howard Test Prep comes to your home and is an excellent resource for ACT prep for students seeking a one on one tutoring experience. Daniel goes over every aspect of the ACT and focuses on the student's strengths and weaknesses. It is an individualized approach without the inconvenience, distraction and stress of a classroom environment. Daniel makes every effort to accommodate the student's schedule and his in home tutoring is worth every penny. My son's score increased 4 points in the 5 weeks of tutoring. I now have our second child working with Daniel and I regularly refer Howard Test Prep without hesitation!
I worked with Sam Kohli between 2014-2015 in preparation for my ACT examination as well SAT Math II, Biology, and Chemistry Subject Tests prior to applying for college. When I first started with Sam, I did not have the hottest test scores (29 and 30 on the ACT) and was in need for guidance for not only raising my score but, more importantly, gaining valuable test taking strategies that would allow me to perform at my peak when testing day came around. I very much enjoyed my time with Sam: both as a tutor and as a friend. Sam's genuinely friendly, determined, outgoing, and patient personality truly make him an amazing tutor and individual you want to work with. Because of Sam's efforts, I was able to score a 35 on my ACT, 800 on my SAT Chemistry, 790 on my SAT Math II, and 750 on my SAT Biology. I am now attending UCLA as a second year Neuroscience Major with a Biomedical Research Minor as a prospective candidate for applying to medical schools come 2019.
Sara did an amazing job helping me prep for my SAT! Before receiving her help my scores weren't very satisfactory, but after I was able to achieve my goal. I would definitely recommend Sara to anyone who is looking for a tutor. Not only does she produce good results but she also has a great attitude that helps contribute to a positive study environment.
When I contacted PBP, they were very attentive to my needs and set up multiple sessions that allowed me to navigate my transfer process & take the right classes. I hope other students out there that are applying for college or looking to transfer can utilize the resources that Prep By Prep provided for me. When you have consultants that care about your personal goals and future plans, it makes the experience enjoyable to not be alone in the process of moving forward in your academic career. I'm looking forward to coming back to PBP!
