We initially hired Jeremy to help my daughter prepare for the ACT's. (She has an auditory processing disorder which can make it difficult for her to grasp certain concepts and Jeremy was recommended as someone who had experience in effectively teaching kids who had similar issues) Last spring, months before we were to officially begin the ACT prep, he stepped in to rescue her from a math class that she was on track to fail. He not only helped reteach her the material in a way she could understand but also liaised with her teacher and advisor to help ensure her success in the class. He has also been very accommodating with scheduling the time-consuming ACT prep sessions and instills my daughter with confidence to tackle the subjects that are particularly difficult for her.
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.
Josh was a thoughtful, patient, and excellent tutor for the ACT. He helped me raise my score over 5 composite points to a 33. I am extremely grateful for his assistance, and because of it, I got into DUKE UNIVERSITY! Again, I am eternally grateful.
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!
we hired Hallie to tutor our hs junior son for the april ACT. she was pleasant, courteous and effective. he scored 33 and we are very very happy with the outcome.
Excellent help with son for college prep test and with study skills.
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.
I was a part of a small SAT prep group and one of the most helpful things that we did was work on problems together. Often SAT prep and the like are very solitary learning experiences but learning in a group setting made it much easier to understand
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 !!!!

Linda is extremely professional! She individualizes her sessions to meet the needs of her students. Three years ago she worked with my son and his scores went up over 200 points. She is now working with my daughter. I highly recommend Linda!
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.

I am an Ivy educated and experienced tutor providing SAT and ACT preparation as well as subject area tutoring to all grade levels. Many satisfied references are available for you to contact.
I teach math at all levels and standardized tests, including SAT, PSAT, ACT both Math and Verbal. What customers love about my work is that I get results. I am a good teacher. I am able to draw out my students to see how they reason on problems, and then guide them to improve their reasoning, as necessary. I don't just tell them how to do a problem; I teach them the reasoning that allows them to solve it on their own.
