Before I, the student, began working with Jeremy, I was having little to no improvement in consecutive SAT exams. I was having so much trouble trying to figure out the proper way to study, in how I could improve myself and jump into the 1500s which was my goal. However, I was leveling out at about the high 1300s, with a loss on what to do. Kaplan Test Prep did not help much, as they provided often passive learning strategies, and failed to really help the student with effective, real-working strategies. Jeremy Fine knows the ins and the outs of not only the SAT but the ACT as well. His vast knowledge about the exams, combined with his professionalism in them and in colleges globally (college prep as well), made him the perfect tutor that ultimately improved my test score by more than 100 points in the span of 5 weeks! The strategies that he gave me, and the vigor that he gave every motivating speech with, really helped me learn how to tackle every single question. I would recommend Jeremy to anybody who really wants to improve with a passion. Obviously, Jeremy is not a miracle maker, who can automatically increase a score by hundreds without the student doing any work. I worked very hard, and Jeremy takes that very seriously. But coming from a kid who finds standardized testing almost impossible, he really seemed like a magician to me.
Terrific Tutor! Sasha is very patient and always willing to explain things in multiple times, using many different examples. My understanding of college level Physics improved within a few sessions. I have been with Sasha for over a year now at the collegiate level, and I would not look for another tutor.
My daughter had the privilege of working with James on her ACT prep these past two months. My daughter who is very bright but struggles with focus and lack of confidence clicked nicely with James. He was extremely timely and easy to schedule with. Our daughter found his sessions to be very engaging and helpful not only with her ACT prep, but also with her regular studies. My daughter set an ACT goal for herself and was extremely surprised and thrilled that she scored beyond her goal. We highly recommend James as an ACT prep tutor!
When I first came to The Harvard Review, I was in the process taking the LSAT for the third time. You are only allowed to take it a total of three times in a span of a few years, and this was my last shot. The first time I took it I got a 159, with no prep. Then I went to a tutor who was recommended to me by several people. I took the test after working with him and got a 158. I was very upset that my score actually went down, but knew I needed to give it one more shot. This time I met with Dr. Fikar. He felt confident that he would be able to help me increase my score. He suggested we work for several weeks of intense tutoring, which is what I agreed to do. Going into the test I was scoring in the mid 160's. I was shocked when I received a 171 on my final attempt. This was by far beyond anything we thought was possible for me. I know that this is in large part due to Dr. Fikar's masterful tutoring and his ability to tap into the student's learning styles, and bring out the very best in them.
Aron is very knowledgeable about ACT/SAT math prep. He explained everything very well, and was also very easy to work with in setting up the appointment.
Josh is a great tutor. He helped my daughter with math and SAT prep. Very reliable and highly recommended .
Crimson Scholars absolutely saved me last week while I was cramming for a Calc midterm I was wholly unprepared for. Frank, a Harvard graduate, is a young, whip smart tutor who spent nearly 15 online hours with me within less than 3 days. He was patient with my neurosis, encouraging, and fun. Most importantly, Frank is an incredible teacher. Thank you, Huen and Frank for accommodating me! I will be back in late Nov/Dec for my final... but with a bit more time to prep!
Excellent test prep, college consulting, and personal essay help. My college acceptances and generous scholarship awards would not have been possible without all your help. Thank you!
Eve was an outstanding tutor for the ISEE. We hired her with just 6 weeks to go until the test - we had been using a New Haven-based tutoring company that just was not doing the job - in that very short period of time Eve managed to coach our daughter from the middle of the pack (ISEE steniles 4 and 5) toward the top (stiles 6 and 7). Plus she was very flexible about scheduling and was amenable to meeting our daughter in New Haven. We only wish we'd enlisted her sooner! We will definitely seek her assistance for our next set of test preps!
Horace has good intuition on how to motivate a student, which is a rare asset in the test prep world.
Samantha has been very responsive, professional and is working very well with my son for his SAT prep. She is knowledgeable and patient! My son said his first lesson was a huge help. We’ll be continuing!
Hallie just began tutoring my 22 year old son in college-level chemistry. They established a good connection and he feels she can help him to get through the year successfully.
My daughter worked with The Ivy Team for SAT Verbal prep. The Ivy Team provided us a great tutor who helped my daughter raise her Verbal score to near perfect! We are very pleased with our experience with The Ivy Team and would highly recommend them to anyone.
Nirmal was very helpful and thorough. I've taken Manhattan GMAT classes and self studies including OG books but I was struggling to get through a certain score that was not happy with. Nirmal really helped me focus on the areas that I needed help on, CR and RC especially, and I improved so much in a month and half. I actually did feel better studying on my own outside of tutor sessions also, thanks to Nirmal. How to approach different question types, how to play with the timing, and etc are all very different for different people and Nirmal really helped me find my own pace and my own tactics to practice. He was very patient and thorough with questions I had, and guided me through the score I finally feel comfortable with. I appreciate all the effort and time Nirmal took to make sure that I understand and do better each time -- even when my mistakes were getting repeated and my scores did not increase drastically. It's also how you take on this time with Nirmal and how much effort you put in. :) If you are on the fence, no need to look further and just go for it! I highly recommend Nirmal. Good luck!
Dan was incredibly helpful with SAT prep this spring.
Laura was so great. Our 9th grader needed last minute help prepping for a Geometry midterm. Laura was super-responsive and engaged, and made time for us the day after we posted our Thumbtack ad. She was able to work through all of the prep packet in a way that made it MUCH clearer than our daughter's teacher had. We are so grateful.
WOW! Renjith is was such a great tutor for my four years at university. As a pre-med student I cannot believe how he juggled getting great grades and helping other students with their coursework. I struggled through chemistry, calculus, organic chemistry, biology, and spanish. With Renjith's constant tutoring sessions, I was able not only to pass but excel in my classes. Renjith's teaching philosophy transcends dry memorization, but he actually focuses on the student's learning experience. He was able to breakdown seemingly complex subjects into very applicable formats. Without Renjith's tutoring, I would not be a successfully graduated student. During difficult subjects, Renjith went above and beyond with his patience in making sure I fully understood concepts. Renjith has also excelled on the SAT/ACT/MCAT so I am very confident he would be a great tutor for those subjects. Thanks again Renjith! I owe my academic career to you.
Charlie recently tutored/taught me GMAT style math to apply to the case portion of management consulting interviews. It had been years since I had performed this type of math because I took the GRE to get into b-school. Charlie is an exceptional teacher who exhibits clear mastery of all math concepts and the patience and teaching style necessary to relay that knowledge. I am happy to report that after 2 tutoring sessions with Charlie I was able to perform case prep at a much higher level and ultimately landed an internship with a prestigious consulting firm this summer. 10/10 would absolutely use Charlie again for a range of math topics.
