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!
I have always hated math and have memories of being yelled at to finish my homework and being in tears because I simply did not understand it. This fear of math started in elementary school and carried itself all the way to college where I had to start in remedial math courses. I now am in the process of studying for a big test and needed help to develop the skills needed to do well on the math portion. Peter was able to simplify the process so that I could better understand this basic math. He never made me feel bad when I had to count with fingers, yikes! I feel I have improved greatly in just the 2 sessions we've had. I'm very excited to improve even more! Who knew I'd come to be excited for a math lesson! Thank you Peter.
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!
Jeremy was a fantastic tutor. My daughter's scores went up signifantly! He was patient, and made what can be such a stressful experience, very calming and incredibly helpful! He's an exceptional tutor, and works wonders in guiding students through the process. I highly recommend him.
I am so pleased to have worked with College Planning Partnerships! Their experience, clarity, and excellent tutors really made the difference for me and helped me achieve my desired score. Before, I struggled with pacing and understanding what the test was really looking for. However, the sessions I took helped create a step-by-step plan that I would follow for each section. The help I received was specific to my needs and weaknesses on the test. They did not teach the test as if there was a set formula to doing well. My tutors were very encouraging and motivating. Also, after each session, my tutors provided extensive feedback to myself and my parents on my performance during the session. This was invaluable information. They had more faith in my abilities than I did! I would highly recommend College Planning Partnerships to anyone in need of SAT or ACT prep.
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.
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.
Dan was professional, thoughtful, and knowledgeable in his capacity as an educator and manager of Bulldog Tutors. Dan evaluated my son's needs and perfectly placed him with an outstanding tutor for S.A.T prep. I was so impressed with Dan's expertise and support that I referred several friends to enroll their kids in his program as well. They have been thrilled with the results.
I began working with Adam just a couple months before my ACT exam. Given only a short period of time to prepare, Adam worked with me on an individual basis to put me on a fast-track to reach my potential scores. He connected me with a couple other of his tutors who worked with me in-person and via Skype. Adam provided me with strategies and tricks that I could not find anywhere else. Over the course of those two months he significantly improved my weaknesses. By the time test day came, I felt confident and well prepared. My composite score improved by 4 points. With Adam's help, now my chances of getting into my first-choice colleges are much higher. H
Linda has been such a wonderful teacher to my both of my daughters! She really helps them to understand their SAT studies and improve their scores. We are very thankful for Linda's help and highly recommend her tutoring services!!! Thanks Linda!!
Gene has been a tremendous help to me. I'd recommend him to anyone seeking SAT or ACT Tutoring.
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.
John helped me prepare for the ACT. He was very professional. He would send email reminders a day before our session, he would make the sessions fun. After he would send a follow up email explaining what we did during the session and what I needed to work on for tbr next session. He made the test prep easy. He was vert calm and patient, and that helped me to feel more comfortable.
Adriana was just what I was looking for, a native speaker and a teacher of Spanish. She was able to meet me within a week of our first email exchange. Our lessons our only in Spanish, which is what I wanted. She is positive and very encouraging.
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 !!!!
Brain Boost is a wonderful program for SAT/ACT tutoring. I would recommend Brain Boost for any student looking to excel with standardized testing. The study groups are small (3-4 students) and are taught by an Ivy League Graduate. The amount of learning is tremendous, especially since the tutoring schedule is flexible for individual student needs. The Brain Boost staff is kind, energetic and available. The pricing is great too! :)
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.
James Maroney and his group at First Choice College Placement have tutored both of my kids through the SAT and ACT process. I highly recommend them for your kids too! One of my kids took the class at her school and both had private tutoring. My kids liked who they worked with very much ! They worked to accommodate our schedule and James also worked with them and was involved with their progress. Both of my kids scores increased and were accepted to their top choices for college! James and Linda were also great to talk to for advice the test taking and college process! They truly made a difference for my kids and success they had !
Working with Jeff was an incredible experience for two reasons. First, we'd worked with another tutor prior to Jeff, and the difference was plain as day. Jeff was prepared, kept track of test scores and was able to show week by week the progress being made. Aside from that, he didn't only do problems in the SAT book, but he made a list of everything my daughter needed to work on, and they worked on different worksheets together so that she could brush up on those skills. My daughter absolutely loved working with Jeff, and was ecstatic when she saw that her score had raised from an 1860 to a 2150 after working with him. Thank you so much Jeff and best of luck and success!

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? This is a common and sometimes frustrating situation for parents and students alike. One of the reasons for this is that taking the SAT requires a totally different approach to test taking than what students are used to. 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. I have 5 years of experience in working exclusively with SAT test takers. References are available upon request.
