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.
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.
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!
Math and science were the two subjects I always found myself having trouble with. With that being said, I was never 100% confident I would be able to pursue my dream of working in the medical field. Shortly after working with Samantha my entire outlook changed! Not only did she greatly improve my test scores, and my understanding of math and science but she made learning them something I really enjoy now. Samantha is accommodating, determined and invested in her students. Together we set goals and thanks to her they were reached- I scored a 1520 on my SAT!
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!
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!!
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.
Ridhi has given three Algebra lessons to my ninth grader so far. From my observation, Ridhi has the knowledge and the right skills in this area. I am waiting for the school test scores to see the actual results.
Greylock Test Prep worked with our son’s schedule in a professional yet personal way. Jeff Urdang is a likeable guy and, while extremely smart, he was not imtimidating or haughty. He was able to quickly connect with our teenager identifying areas that needed attention and followed up after every session with helpful feedback and summary notes for quick study. His price was very reasonable, and he made it easy by coming to us. We highly recommend him and will keep his number for summer prep.
Renjith Maracheril is the best tutor I've had who has made the hardest class of my undergraduate career, Organic Chemistry, understandable. His ability to explain things in a visual manner can make teaching the hardest subjects simple and easy! The best part about my experience with him iwas that when he saw I was not understanding the material fully, he went out of his way to find me an organic chemistry set so he could walk me through building molecules to visualize mechanisms. If you need a tutor for any subject, you should definitely choose Renjith because he will teach you the material to the best of his ability and if his methods are not working for you, he will come up with creative ways to help you through.
ASVAB Test Prep Dan is the man ! I came to him a week before my ASVAB test, I was having problems with the Math knowledge and arithmetic reasoning section of test. With such very little time Dan made a huge impact !! Due to his help I passed the test with flying colors ! He actually breaks problems down and goes into detail. He shows you multiple ways to work out a problem. I enjoyed working with him, he actually made math fun and easy !!!!
I contacted Robert after being impressed by his tutoring philosophy. Having only a few months of being tutored by him, the end result was getting to the 98th percentile from the 93 percentile for me. Robert is one of the most patient tutors I have ever had (I have received tutoring since 8th grade), and he explains everything clearly. Follow his logic and do not be afraid to ask any questions about anything. He is an expert on the whole organization of test prep, and he will provide you with the most useful websites for additional test prep. In addition, he is knowledgeable about other subjects as well, which is why I continue to seek his help with my issues in college such as time management and study skills. While working with Robert on the ACT we spoke about other areas of my education as well as my college plans. I came to realize that Robert took a sincere interest in my overall well-being, and consistently made suggestions that invaluable to me on many fronts. Within a few weeks I began to call upon him to help me with my educational plan and college applications. Together, we developed strategies to strengthen my application and Robert helped me to develop my college essays. We went through the trials and tribulations of the college application process, and every step of the way Robert was there to help guide me. Even today, as a freshman at an Ivy League university Robert was there to help me with course selection in addition to many of the challenges an incoming student faces on a college campus. One thing that struck me the most is his ability to understand people, especially how one person responds to different situations. This is important because he is able to understand what is exactly preventing someone from achieving the best of their ability. For example, there was a specific component that I was struggling with my coursework, and he helped me overcome that problem after identifying a specific study limitation that I did not know I had. Over time, he has become a mentor for me. Truly you will be very lucky to have Robert as a tutor because he goes above and beyond for you, and young adults need someone to guide them through difficult times.
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!
Yekatrina Ozherelyeva I would with highest respect judge all the below areas with excellence. Work Quality Professionalism Responsiveness Value Punctuality We have known Yekaterina for many years and she has been very helpful in many ways with tutoring our daughter Anastasia. Respectfully yours, Deborah Blaisdell
Ken Cyprus was my math tutor from eighth grade to senior year of high school. While all other subjects came easily to me, math was a difficult subject for me, and it was holding me back from having the high GPA I could have. With Ken's tutoring, I was always the highest performing student in my math class and never worried about my GPA being impacted by math again. Throughout the years, certain math teaching styles wouldn't work for me, and I struggled with the material, but Ken never let me give up. He worked not only on my math aptitude but also my confidence and I became a more engaged math student. Ken would give me test problems, help me study, and create material catered to my specific weaknesses so that by the time a test came, I could do it on my own. He was also able to help me score higher than I ever thought I could on the SAT. Now, as I go into my senior year of Barnard College and am getting ready to graduate with both a degree from an Ivy League institution and that of an elite liberal arts college, I look back with immense gratitude for Ken. I couldn't have gotten here without him.
Bill helped to unlock the puzzle of the SAT exam for my daughter. She learned so much in such a short time and felt confident both walking into the test and walking out. Thank you!
