My daughter and her friend have met with John 3 times so far for SAT prep. They have been very happy with each session. The first session was diagnostic and the subsequent sessions have been spent discussing problems and techniques. John is very easy to work with. They do not feel bad when they make mistakes or do not understand a concept. We plan to do a total of 10 sessions before taking the SAT.
Met with John once or twice a week over the course of several months during my GMAT preparation. I started out with a 13th percentile quantitative score. After working with him I was able score in the 73rd percentile on my first official GMAT, exceeded my initial goal by scoring ABOVE a 700. I had no formal quantitative training or experience prior to studying; the last math class I took was as a sophomore in high school (a decade ago). Each time I met with John, he was able to go beyond simply correcting my mistakes. He clearly explained the overarching reasoning, strategy and logic behind a certain problem. This is something the video explanations in GMAT curriculum do not do as thoroughly as John. If you're looking for someone to discuss GMAT concepts with in a clear and intelligent way, I highly recommend him. I also studied using curriculum like Target Test Prep, but John helped me tremendously by working through the problems I struggled with step by step and identifying any weak spots in my quant skills. He understands the GMAT and is able to identify the kinds of questions that likely would or would not appear on the exam. Finally, John served as a strong source of moral support throughout a challenging three months of study atop a full time job. When I wanted to try a new curriculum or ask him about tricky questions via email, he would always offer thoughtful feedback in response. His responses were especially helpful when I scored low on practice exams; John's feedback always helped me put things in perspective and helped me get back up and try again. He was very flexible and willing to work with my schedule and make time when needed, often on short notice. In short, I couldn't have done it without him!
Soham is a great SAT tutor. Throughout the process, he assessed my strengths and weaknesses very well, and worked accordingly. He is incredibly understanding of the fact that I have a busy schedule with school and extracurriculars, making sure that SAT prep work was never too much of a burden, and flexible with his scheduling as well. I will continue working with Sohan for ACT and general college prep.
Very well prepared, detail oriented, dedicated, energetic, and extremely motivating. We just started lessons to prep for the ACT, but I can tell she's bringing the best out of my daughter.
Monica helped my 11th-grade son prep for his statistics final after falling behind a bit on the coursework. She helped him catch up in a 2-hour session and he got an A! We are continuing to use Monica to prep for the SAT. My son likes her very much and I am impressed by her professionalism and warm personality. We are glad we found her!
Sam tutored my daughter on ACT prep. Prior to going to Sam, my daughter took an expensive 12-week group class that did not improve her score at all. After tutoring with Sam for only 5 weeks (12 hours total time), my daughter's score went up by 5 points (a very significant improvement in such a short period of time.) Sam provided valuable feedback after each session that allowed to better understand her strengths and weaknesses. I highly recommend Sam to anyone looking to improve standardized test score.
Anish is hands down the best tutor in this area! I needed someone to tutor me for the GRE and he was exceptional. His teaching style and experience is exactly what you need to score high on the exam. Additionally, he offered to edit my personal statements for graduate schools. His feedback was amazing and he responds in a timely manner. Due to his help, I was able to write the perfect statement and score in the 90th percentile. I am going to attend my dream graduate program in the fall and I have a lot to thank him for. I am forever grateful for this tutor and his dedication to help people!
My stepdaughter has been working with Sylvia for a few months now and we can really see a difference in her math and English (reading, writing, spelling, etc). My stepdaughter actually looks forward to her time with Sylvia, which is so important to us. Sylvia is very patient, personable and knowledgeable. My stepdaughter got very excited yesterday, after she found out that Sylvia is also fluent in Spanish because she would like to start working on that as well. I feel that we really lucked out with finding Sylvia. Soon, my other stepdaughter will be working with Sylvia to prep her for the SSAT!

Darya is great! She helped me prep for the verbal section on the GMAT. She was really patient and taught me very useful tips. She created a in depth study plan that addressed my weakness and kept me motivated. I would totally recommend her.
Brian is a fantastic tutor! I really can't say enough good things about him. He is always well-prepared, thoughtful, and he really knows his stuff. He helped my daughter on the SAT so much. He really transformed the way she thought about and approached the test. He is an all around excellent tutor. He was never stumped by questions my daughter had. What impressed me the most about Brian is how knowledgeable he was on even the smallest grammar detail. I would highly recommend Brian to anyone looking to improve their SAT or ACT scores!
DD Levine is the best math tutor ever! Each Saturday she gets on Skype with my 8th grade son, helping him to make sense of the advanced math he faces at his prep school. As a self-described "humanities kid," math is not my kid's strong suit. It's not mine, either. So I was thrilled to find DD. She is patient around various different learning styles, she is intuitive and knows exactly where in a problem my son is having a hard time understanding, and she enthusiastically finds work to challenge my son. I cannot rave enough about her! My son has seen his math scores go up, but perhaps more importantly, he has a new confidence around math that even his math instructor has commented on, several times. Plus, he doesn't have the anxiety-based "math freak outs" that he used to. This alone, has made DD's tutoring so valuable. We've had such a positive experience with DD that my 6th grade son is now working with her. Thank you so much, DD!!!
Alex helped me with my GMAT prep. He was very patient and good at figuring out a personalized strategy for me. I signed up for one of the well known programs but felt that I still needed an extra push. I highly recommend Alex as a tutor to test takers of any level.
Drew is a phenomenal tutor! Not only is he a whiz, but he's passionate, energetic and very organized. It's rare to find someone who is a master at both English and Math. Highly recommend.
I had a lovely experience with MyGuru. They quickly found me a great GMAT tutor that would've cost me at least 2x as much at one if the big test prep companies, not to mention mine was probably better qualified. Overall easy and great experience!
