The GMAT math portion had proved an obstacle I could not best on my own or with an online course (PR). I needed help and Alameddine was amazing. Due to his tutoring, my score increased from the 13th percentile to the 41st percentile. Helping me increase my total GMAT score by over 120 points. I highly recommend him for your GRE or GMAT tutoring needs and am very grateful for his help and patience. He makes it clear from session one that if you follow his instructions and do all the homework, you will see the success you desire. He brings homework books from which you will do practice problems and homework. The primary benefit of using his services was that he scaled the degree of difficulty of the questions to your needs. So you wouldn't be doing problems he deemed were too easy for you. Again, nothing but high regard for him and his teaching ability.

Mr. Kaddoura has been tutoring my son in Algebra I for the past 2 months and his grade has improved from a D to a B. He started working with my son on very short notice and he has been very accommodating with scheduling. He quickly assessed the issues my son was having and made appropriate recommendations regarding not only the critical material to cover but the number of weekly tutoring sessions and the length of each session necessary in order to accomplish our goals. Most importantly, my son feels very comfortable with his style of teaching which is critical when selecting the right tutor.

Mr. Kaddoura has been tutoring me for the past year and a half. He started my freshmen year helping me with Algebra 1 honors and I passed my class, final, and SOL. Over the summer I took geometry honors and he also helped me with it and once again i passed my class, final, and SOL. This year I am taking Algebra 2 honors and I'm currently passing my class. He has helped me a lot and I will continue working with him. He has done a great job helping me and i recommend him for students who need help.

As the tag lines says, "Bill Knows Math"! We hired him for SAT math prep and we purchased the book he recommended, which he knows backwards and forwards. He leads very energetic tutoring sessions revealing his passion for helping kids learn the content. My daughter was more engaged than I've normally seen her with math. His help provided her the confidence she needed for the SAT.

I am being tutored in Spanish from Julissa. My sessions have been educational and fun. Julissa builds the curriculum around the students strengths. Although my tutoring session is 1 hour, she spends her own time at home preparing for my lessons. Julissa is professional and punctual and I am extremely proud to have her as my tutor.

Dr. Helgeson was very quick to respond to my request for a resume` writer. Her communication was top notch throughout . In the end, I felt that what I was attempting to communicate was being missed. I paid her for her service though I did not receive a final project (my choice) so I can't give her 5 stars. 3 stars says average but i don't think it fair to say her services were average we just couldn't find ourselves on the same sheet of music.

My son's online tutor was Dan. He and my son worked very well together, and Dan was open to suggestions from me via email which he would incorporate into his sessions. In less than 2 months tutoring twice weekly, he was able to bring my son's college math grade from an F to a C. We are thrilled with the results we received from employing Arbor Tutors. We first worked with Steve and explained our needs, and he matched us with Dan. Great job, Steve and Dan! Thank you so much!

Mr. Bromley is a highly organized individual that uses a variety of tools to help my daughter achieve her goals, study habits and now she is an A student. I like the fact that he listened to the problems my daughter was having and implemented a plan specifically for her issues. Mr. Bromley is extremely motivated, helpful, intelligent, witty and very easy to converse with. My child felt very comfortable speaking with him and his staff who are friendly and forthcoming. You will not find a better educator to guide and assist your child. I would highly recommend him for your tutoring needs.

Mr. Bromley has been very helpful and provided the support we needed when we’re searching for an online tutoring service. The A+ Club helped coordinating our schedules and we are able to find qualified tutor that is reasonably priced and also give us the homework help that we're looking for. Yes, I would recommend their service to others.

Mr. Gruber is effective, flexible, punctual, professional and his tutoring really made a difference. My daughter's SAT score increased by 100 points and her ACT score increased from a 29 to a 34.

Gilbert P.

Prior to tutoring, two things were holding my daughter back on the SAT- the math section and her confidence. Alex was the perfect tutor to improve both of those areas. He provided clear teaching in math that honed in on the areas where she needed the most help. He was consistently positive and encouraging, helping her believe in herself. This led to her math score jumping 180 points.

I have always had a confidence issue when I get into a testing environment, anxiety is a major problem for me. Due to my particular circumstances, I was advised by Chelsea that I could apply for additional testing time from the ACT organization. Thankfully, I got 50% more time to take the test. I would not even have known that this was possible if Chelsea had not given me this information and relevant advice. I have to say that after spending tutoring time with my Chelsea tutor, my expectations were more than satisfied, not only did I do well in my ACT’s, I was able to achieve a 31 score, which I never thought I would be able to do.

I have never used a tutor before, so I was apprehensive to use one recommended to me by my fellow student for my ACT. Having sat them before I really needed help to ensure I could raise my score. So I engaged Chelsea International. I am flipped over by the level of support I have received from them as a student and now realize what my friend was talking about, no wonder he was always doing so well. My ACT score came in above average at a 28 and I am really pleased. Thank you!

I did not anticipate the impact that Novastar tutoring would have. We started with our oldest child, and tutoring to help raise her math grade. Not only did her grade rise quickly, but also her overall confidence. We now have two children receiving "proactive" tutoring, to keep them ahead of the curve. Their grades have never been higher!

While we are still waiting on the final scores for both of our daughter's SAT test, Les provided what we asked him to do, with the wisdom of a father and instructor and that was "how to handle the questions you don't know the answer to." We had a limited time to prepare for the test and Les was able to cover a lot of ground. Hiring him one on one, enabled us to adjust his teaching and customize to the needs of our daughters. He also proved to be a good sounding board for us as we worked the system. I would be happy to provide a recommendation for Les.

I was looking for an SAT tutor for my son Michael who had never taken the SAT. We were looking for someone who could teach Michael test taking strategies. Les was a perfect match for my son Michael. Les took every day, real world situations and integrated them into his teaching. Michael responded well to the personal, individualized training that Les provided which matched perfectly with Michael's learning style. We highly recommend Les to any student who is looking for a personal, individualized style of learning.

I’ve taken my SATs a couple of times and although I am not a bad student, I just felt that I could have done better, I knew it inside, but just could not find where it was. I got the Getting Into The Ivys tutoring program and worked with a Chelsea tutor. What I really like about my tutor is that she’s a qualified teacher and is professional and knows how to actually teach concepts properly. I really did not want to take any chances. Going to university is very important to me and my family. Susan my tutor developed a special study plan just for me, which helped me focus on my key weaknesses, without feeling de-motivated, in-fact I was so enthused by her, I actually looked forward to all my sessions. She is a brilliant tutor and I am so very grateful. I was able to increase my composite core by 100. I am very pleased.

Les was a great, positive and an encouraging tutor for my son. He helped my son prepare for the Catholic High School entrance exam (HSPT).
