Introduction: Expert SAT, ACT, GRE, and GMAT tutoring both in person and online. The SAT, ACT, and GRE are high-stakes exams. Whether or not you're a fan of standardized tests, you're probably here because you have to deal with one of them. Good news - we're test prep specialists, and everything we do is designed to help you raise your scores. Not only will higher scores give you a leg up on your competition (who might think "test-optional" means "I don't have to take the test"), but they can also help you get scholarships. We're probably the most expensive test prep tutors in San Diego. Why? In stark contrast to our competitors - who employ a rotating cast of 23-year-olds - our tutors have an average of 10 years of experience. We pay them really well because we only hire tutors who are already extremely good at what they do. In addition to tutoring, we also teach small group SAT classes and GRE classes. We've also got a ton of free resources on our blog for all you do-it-yourselfers out there. BTW, we also offer prep for the GMAT, ISEE, SSAT, and HSPT tests, and graduate school personal statement / statement of purpose advising.

I worked with Blake Jensen at Vince Kotchian test prep to improve my GRE quantitative score. Within 6 weeks of tutoring, I saw a 9 point improvement on the quantitative section! Blake was prepared, professional, and ready to answer any questions I had during the process in addition to being highly flexible given my full time employment. I am grateful for his help and would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone who needs a boost when studying for the GRE.

Blake: "Thanks Max - you were dedicated to improving even with a very busy schedule! It was also fun to see you come up with some solutions to problems I had never seen a student come up with before! It was great working with you."

They are the best GRE prep out there, especially Blake. I wouldn't have come close to getting my dream score without him. He tailored our lesson plans to the way I learn, showed me many helpful study tools and resources to aid my studying, and was a constant support. He continuously went above and beyond and made a seemingly grueling experience be a pleasant one. Nothing but amazing things to say about my experience at Vince Kotchain test prep and Blake, I am so happy I found them.

Blake: "It was great working with you Raquel, and I'm so happy for your score! You really earned it!"

I wanted to write this post and thank Blake for the EXTRAORDINARY work he did with my daughter in training her, encouraging her, and giving her the tools to get a near perfect score on the ACT.I am an educator myself, training medical students, residents, and fellows to be the next generation of healthcare leaders. I will be taking a page from Blakes book on how to be a better educator and mentor to my medical students on the medical ward.If you are a parent deciding on which test prep is the BEST for your child , there is no question, Vince Kotchian Test Prep is worth every penny.I have barely time to write reviews with my busy schedule, but this is a review I am blessed to write. Thank you Blake for making a difference. Let me know when I should start signing up my 10 y/o to start taking classes with you, LOLSincerely,S. Gounder MD

Blake: Thanks, Dr. Gounder - working with your daughter was very rewarding. She truly dedicated herself to becoming a master of the ACT and it showed. I'm very happy for her.

Mr. Jensen was a really good tutor for increasing my ACT score. He gave me a lot of strategies so that I could work through the questions without worrying about time. He's realistic and recommends prep books that are effective and helpful.

Thank you so much Blake! Our daughter was looking for a little boost in her Math & Science ACT Scores. You were quick to orchestrate a plan that included Math Chops combined with your skilled instruction snd patience. In just a few weeks, we saw incredible progress and a jump In both subjects. Not only did her overall super score improve but she always felt encouraged by you and that you were rooting for her the whole time! I cant thank you enough for your fast communication and guidance. In such a short time you made a big impression on our lives! All the best - The Parkers
