I am a post high school student and I worked with peter for about a month preparing for sat math. In that time I saw a lot of improvement in my math skills. Peter helped me look at problems in ways different then the book showed me which helped immensely. I would definitely recommend peter for math tutoring
Eileen is kind and straightforward - very easy to work with. She was instrumental in my daughter's college prep/search. Eileen helped with SAT prep, college applications and essay. My daughter enjoyed working with Eileen. We have recommended her to several friends.
After a disappointing SAT test, my son did an intense 8-session course with Jeremy over about 5 weeks, focusing mainly on writing and reading. Jeremy was always pleasant and encouraging, explaining things carefully while also working my son hard. The result was that my son raised his combined writing and reading score by 170 points (his total score is now 2070). My son was thrilled with the improvement.
I've worked with Mr.Dolan for SAT prep and he was very helpful in teaching me new ways of finding the answer and teaching ways to study for the SAT.
I am so glad that I decided to take advantage of the SAT prep classes at College Planning Partnerships. Sam and Zac were incredibly helpful in preparing me for the SAT and I went into the test more confident than I ever had for standardized tests in the past. Initially I was skeptical about the online tutoring, but I quickly realized that it was an extremely useful tool. With the offices being almost an hour away, the online tutoring was very convenient for my family and me and it allowed for much more flexibility with planning. Even though it was online, I didnt feel like any part of the tutoring was lacking because the tutors were so engaged and all of the materials we would have used in person were right in front of me on my computer screen. These prep classes really helped to make the test seem much less intimidating and I became more relaxed and calm when taking the test as a result. I learned so many useful test-taking strategies and was able to manage my time much more effectively. After taking the SAT for the first time, my scores were much higher than my PSAT scores earlier this year, and critical reading, which had often been my weakest section in past standardized tests, became one of my strongest sections on the SAT. Thank you so much for all of your help!
Neetu is a wonderful tutor. She is tutoring our son for the SAT in math.
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 was very impressed with Dan from the very first time I met him. His knowledge base and teaching style was perfect for my 16 year old son. Whether it is English class tutoring or SAT review, Dan connects with the student and puts an individualized plan in place. I was fortunate to have Dan as a speaker at our local middle school College Awareness Night. His expertise in SAT/ ACT review was evident to all who attended. I look forward to using Dan's services to help my children reach their optimal SAT scores in the future. Ann D
I really appreciated the time and effort that she put towards me. It was a tremendous help and I felt extremely prepared for the SAT. Mrs. Kaplan would always try to arrive on time for our appointments and would even spend extra time with me if needed. If anyone is serious about doing well on the English section of the SAT, I highly recommend Mrs. Kaplan.
Our son had a great experience- now we wait for the score. Feeling confident going in to the SAT is great
I am a 24 year old college student and I needed to take a statistics class to complete my undergraduate degree. I am a pretty average student when it comes to math, and the only class available was an online course that was mostly self-taught. Diane helped me understand the weekly lessons, and also helped me with my term project as well as prepping for my exams. I would definitely hire her again should I need any help with my graduate school math classes. She is a great teacher and I would highly recommend her.
James tutored my daughter for the SAT as well as the SAT math level II subject test. He is very knowledgeable of the subject matter as well as of the necessary strategies to tackle these tests with positive outcomes. My daughter was very happy with his tutoring style and felt confident on test day.
Excellent. Linda is dedicated, knowledgable, very qualified. I will continue with Linda for all 4 of my children. She goes above and beyond the call of duty. Even checking in with students to wish them Luck and remind them to stay focused and practice. Excellent, I will recommend her highly.
Ilya helped raise my daughter's SAT score by close to 300 points! That is stunning. He was able to do this by teaching her how to analyze a problem and how to assess possible answers. My daughter also tended to obsess over her answers and as a result was not finishing all the test questions in the time allotted. Ilya gave her the confidence to work more efficiently. We found Ilya to be kind, patient and a fabulous teacher.

I provide high-quality, personalized SAT tutoring for anyone having trouble with the Verbal section (reading and writing). I'm a certified state educator with 7 years of SAT-tutoring experience. I've developed an efficient, effective method that focuses on concrete strategies and techniques for each question type. I focus on one thing: getting test scores up. As a result, every single one of my students over the past 7 years has shown marked improvement. I personalize every course for the individual student. I utilize Socratic-style methods to ensure that the student is working for every minute of the class - thinking, debating, and processing - and not just listening to me talk. I also bring a high-energy, fun attitude to my lessons; one that acknowledges that the SAT is no fun for anyone, but is beatable by everyone. If your student needs help on the verbal portion of the SAT, I'm your man, even if you've tried classes or programs before.

I provide private, in-home SAT and ACT tutoring for the reading and writing sections of each test. Does your son or daughter get high grades in school, yet struggle with taking the SAT?

Fortunately, there are specific techniques and strategies for managing the verbal sections of the SAT which I can teach your student, including: * How to build an SAT-ready vocabulary * The most effective methods for tackling the difficult reading passages * Getting to the correct answers quickly and with confidence * Writing a high scoring essay Please contact me to talk about how we can work together to improve your child's SAT scores.
