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
Tutored my daughter in math and also for SAT prep. Knowledgeable and patient. I highly recommend.
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.
My son is taking SAT prep with John. He has been awesome .... Great personality for working with kids. He has been very helpful and I am glad I found him!
Tristan is a very patient and professional young man. He tutored my daughter for her second time SAT test. Her scores improved as a result. He was also super accommodating when it came to scheduling tutoring sessions. I would highly recommend him.
Neetu is a wonderful tutor. She is tutoring our son for the SAT in math.
Ken was effective at tutoring our three daughters for their Math SAT. One of them increased their score from a 640 to a 750.
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.
We met in a small group once a week for SAT prep. It was a relaxed setting and we got a lot of work done. We started off with a practice test of both the act and the sat which was very helpful. I found the one on one session to be especially helpful, and there was never a question that went unanswered. I really enjoyed the class and got a lot out of it.
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.
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!

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 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.
