Juliet worked with my son last year during the summer time with SAT prep. She did an awesome job my son took the SAT's in October. He did very well. He said that Juliet helped him understand how to take the SAT and he was very confident while taking it. I would definitely recommend her to friends and family. Juliet was very professional and easy going and always punctual. Thanks!

Nina has really helped me out this year! She has been very flexible, responsive, insightful and perceptive. She always explains things in a way that has been clearer to me than any of my teachers. After working with her, my SAT score went up enough to get me into the UC schools I applied to!

Jenny tutored both of my boys. She was always courteous, and prepared. I first found her looking g for a SAT Tutor. She reviewed work and offered constructive assistance without doing the work for them. I used Jenny for 2 and 1/2 years. With my younger son. We recommend her to friends who have also used her tutoring. The convenience of having her is great so my teenagers are not meeting in a public coffee shop or library. I was able to be active in recommendations when needed.

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!

These are the best Tutors for the SAT you can possibly find. I hire them to tutor my daughter and the tutor was able to get my daughter to move up another 300 points in a very short period of time.

Travis tutored me for about two years in my latter half of high school. He provided me all the necessary tools so score extremely high on the SAT and subject tests. He cares so much about his students and their success and goals in life. I'm currently at the college of my dreams, University of Southern California, and without Travis' constant mentoring I am unsure if I would have been given this opportunity. I cannot think of someone more highly recommended in my community to not only tutor kids but also guide them through the trials of growing up than Travis.

Areum provided the best learning environment and experience I have ever had. It wasn't until I began working with Areum that I actually engaged in learning outside of school, and was actually excited about it. She has a way of teaching through various methods which makes curriculum easy to remember and fun to do so. She helped me so much on improving my SAT score, as well as in the college application process. My vocabulary and math skills improved greatly within a short amount of time. When it came time to fill out my college applications, Areum helped me plan out which schools were the best fit for me and how we would get there. I definitely did not know anything when it came time to apply, so I am grateful to have had Areum to help me reach my goals. I truly admire the way she connects and builds a bond with her students. She is always there to mentor me and guide me in anything that I have questions about. I've never met anyone who genuinely cares that much about the well-being of her students.

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!

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.

    Mrs. Webb tutored my daughter in a number of areas in math and helped her prep for exams, including the CAHSEE. She was extremely patient and took the time to explain anything my daughter did not grasp, as many times as she needed. Mrs. Webb is experienced in many disciplines and was willing to work across subject areas in order to make sure my daughter really understood concepts, theories and steps. I would recommend Mrs. Webb to any parent looking to help their child, whether they need some basic assistance or more in-depth tutoring.

    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.

    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.
