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.
Very responsive to messages. Extremely professional and very enthusiastic. Above and beyond quality of work. Always prepared with the best test prep materials. Would highly recommend.
Sasha helped me go from the 43rd percentile to the 55th on the GRE quant section. She gave me the tools to be able to solve all the problems on the test. After tutoring with Sasha I was able to feel more confident and relaxed when taking the test, she’s the best!
I have only the highest praise for Jim DelGenio, in every possible way. We have had a longtime tutor working with my son, but test prep is not her specialty. We were referred to Jim through an acquaintance, and Im so grateful that we had him in our corner. Simply put, Jim is a fabulous tutor. He very quickly assessed Conors working and learning style, and adapted his sessions accordingly. He spent quite some time chatting with us at the beginning of our time together, to understand our goals and work toward them. Our experience with Jim felt the total opposite of a package, but rather a customized strategy based on Conors strengths/weaknesses and our goals. Jim has a broad range of knowledge of not only the testing process, but also navigating the waters of college applications. He was a wealth of information that informed much of how we proceeded with the various schools Conor was considering. Jim gave homework that was apropos to the subject matter they were covering, but was mindful about weeks where Conors schoolwork was overwhelming we all appreciated that! And personally, Jim was a pleasure to work with. Always on time. Always responsive to e-mails and phone calls. And an all around nice guy too! But the best testimony I could give is from Conor himself. I asked him if he attributed his great success in his SAT scores to his work with Jim. His reply? Absolutely.
I could not say enough good things about Dr. Fikar. He is the reason, for the first time in my entire life, I did well on a standardized test. I had used other large test prep companies to prep for the GMAT and none of them could help me beat a 650 until. Dr. Fikar's knowledge of the test and study materials are unparalleled. I could not highly recommend someone more. Thank you for everything Dr. Fikar!
My son has his confidence back thanks to Peter. My son did well in math through 5th grade. He did poorly each quarter in Math in 6th despite having adequate standardized test scores. Peter reviews Math in a positive and fun way. I am confident my son will do much better in 7th Grade. He is even hoping to advance to the next level. Thanks Peter.
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.
SW 410 (stats) is the hardest class. I have a learning disabiity that makes a class like this really hard to understand. R & L Consultants made this process easier. He explained things until I understood. I had a big project that needed you to explain a hyposesis and then you run a test. So hard to do, but can I say R&L consultants made this project almost enjoyable. He is truely invested and cares about you and your success. I would hire this pro again in a heart beat!
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!
Jer is an all around great tutor. The range of subjects he can help with is truly amazing. We hired him to help with standardized testing, AP Statistics and AP Calculus. He has a great demeanor, he is well prepared for lessons, and he is really able to explain concepts very well which is the key. I highly recommend him!
I hired Dr. V to help me prepare for the French OPI and WPT. It had been about four years since I had really spoken much French and he brought back all the things that I had been forgetting as well as awesome tips for ways I could get a higher level rating on the tests. He challenged me in a really good way and I was able to go into the test with a ton more confidence than if I had tried to do it alone. Merci beaucoup, Dr. V!!
In the course of 4 hours, Samantha transformed my ACT preparation rut into victory! I was unable to progress in my performance on the ACT science section, and yet I could not identify what was wrong with my method of attack. Samantha listened intently and graciously to my thought processes as I verbally solved a few practice problems. She pin-pointed where my strategy could change, and asked me insightful questions that guided my mind to a more orderly strategy for each different question type. My science score jumped 5 points, remained consistent on each practice test, and my final overall ACT score exceeded my goal! Because Samantha, with her confidently kind and encouraging demeanor, effectively and efficiently honed my skills, I received the scholarship that enabled me to afford college! Thank you Samantha!
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.
T. Fields was great! My son decided last minute to take the June SAT after his May SAT score wasn’t what he had hoped. He had about 8 days to prep. Tristan responded right away & was willing to work with what we wanted. No set minimum of sessions, no sales pitch. My son met with him 3 times, and Tristan’s knowledge of the test was impressive! He has such insight, tips & targeted help- the one on one with Tristan honestly blew the other group prep classes away! My son took the SAT again & was confident he improved his score. He was able to use the strategy Tristan taught him, and felt prepared in the math section. We won’t get the scores until July 11.... But we are feeling hopeful! Stay tuned. Tristan was kind, polite, professional & again, his in depth knowledge of the SAT is invaluable. S.T in CT
I was not a good test taker...until I started working with Mr. V. He was very thorough and patient with me, even staying to make sure I felt confident in the lesson. He was very flexible, especially as it got closer to test time. I enjoyed my test prep and Mr. V helped me understand things bettet than some of my teachers could. With his help, I was able to get my score up to 1250! I highly recommend Mr. V as a tutor
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.
I highly recommend Jaf as a math tutor. Math make a lot of sense, but sometimes you need help to see it. Jaf is the kind of tutor that can help kids get there.
Samantha was extremely helpful in helping me study and work for my English final. Her help was crucial in helping me get ready for the test.
I think any adult who pays to study a test just goes to show how important the test is to the person who may be feeling uncertain about him/herself or perhaps some aspects of the test. Hence, I believe the greatest value of a tutor is his ability to motivate his students to the next level of learning and to feel confident in tackling the test. And that is exactly what I found in Fred. I was feeling apprehensive after attempting some questions on the mock GRE test. But now, with the support of Fred, I feel very confident and that confidence motivated me to want to do my very best. So from the bottom of my heart.. Thank you Fred for sharing my journey to a self actualisation need.
