My daughter met with Juliet for ACT prep to narrow down areas to focus on. Juliet took complicated mathematics and made them easier to understand while also teaching test taking strategies. We will definitely use Juliet again in the future to prepare for SAT and ACT exams

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!

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.

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!

Matt Klemsz is a great tutor. He's easy to talk to which is great for tutoring and any questions I have on homework he is a great help and helps me learn the material. He has given me great advice on how too shorten my steps in math problems too make it easier too understand and so that it is less complicated.

If you're looking for a very competent and well rounded tutor, then Bruce is a great choice. His soft spoken, very patient approach worked well with my 14 year old daughter. Bruce helped her understand the Advanced Geometry concept that her teacher could not. Bruce Ziai is a wonderful Math tutor. I would recommend Bruce to any struggling Math student! He is a very soft spoken, patient and intelligent man who tutored my daughter in Geometry. We were both very impressed with His vast knowledge and pleasant demeanor.

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.

Simply the best SAT tutoring we have experienced. Our son enrolled in a preparation course with no significant results or guidance. We decided to try Tutor Nerds and the experience was exceptional. I loved how our tutor kept the lessons very active and was always asking questions making sure my son was really learning the topics. We still have another month of lessons till the test date.

About

As an MIT graduate and current physics teacher, I want to help people transform their lives, and I want to see you accomplish more than you can on your own. I have lots of math and science experience as well as test taking. If you need help applying to college, have questions about elite universities, don't understand math, or just need a refresher on a certain science topic, I am the person for you. I feel that I am a kind and open person; you shouldn't be afraid to ask questions! Furthermore, I feel that a lot of people avoid getting a tutor because it is too expensive which is a shame; everyone should have the opportunity to get help if they need it regardless of socioeconomic background. I have scouted the professional private tutoring field to get a feel of the price ranges and I try to give lower rates than other professional services. If you choose me as a tutor, I will work my hardest so that you receive the best deal around! :)

About

I've been providing effective, high-quality one-on-one ACT/ SAT tutoring for over six years. Before tutoring independently, I worked at the largest test prep company in the business. I cover all of the content on college admissions tests along with test strategy. Tutoring is entirely customized to my student's needs. Courses range from $220 (brief overview) to $2,860 (comprehensive -- both tests). Students can expect 200 points improvement on SAT and 3 points improvement on ACT when they commit to doing the homework and practice tests. Remember, these tests carry almost as much weight in college admissions as GPA. I can help you score as high as possible.
