I'm very happy with the tutoring we got from Amy from Arbor Tutors. She's a very good chemistry tutor.
Wendie was an excellent tutor. Easy to schedule with and found a time and convenient location close to home. My son's score went up several points from the first time he took the ACT (before tutoring). His Reading score had a big increase send his math score went up dramatically too. My son mentioned that the tutoring also helped him in his math class at school. I would definitely hire Wendi again.
Bertina was my daughter’s ACT Prep Tutor last semester. Bertina gave her the confidence and encouragement I was looking for. She was always positive; and it was definitely a team effort between them. She was very flexible with our study sessions and kept me in the loop about my daughter’s progress. She is a very kind and polite person and would be wonderful for any age group.
Jeff and I tutor ACT review courses. We have worked together for 8 years, and we have successfully helped our students raise their scores. We have also worked together in independent studies for chronically ill home bound high school students. Our expertise is diversified and child centered.
Words cannot describe how happy I am that we picked Laura to tutor our daughter for the ACT test. She was extremely professional, and worked well with my daughter's hectic schedule. I am looking forward to working with her in the future with my younger daughter.
Renjie was AMAZING and so helpful!!!! Renjie worked with me for a few months studying for Quantitative GRE. He was so kind and made learning math concepts easy. I have already recommended Renjie as a tutor for friends that are about to take the test. I learned so much from Renjie, I would use him again in an instant. When I retook the test, I used Renjie's strategies and my percentile doubled over. Highly HIGHLY recommend Telos Tutors!
Steve is a wonderful tutor. After only 6 lessons with Steve, our son was able to earn a composite score of 34 the first (and only) time he took the ACT, including 35's in Science and Math. Our son was so happy to have worked with Steve before sitting for the ACT,as he now has the ACT behind him and can focus on his classes and other school activities, rather than on testing and test prep. We very much appreciated how comfortable our son was working with Steve and how confident he felt going into the test.
My daughter became more confident in her math skills. She was able to raise her Math ACT score after tutoring.
English tutoring was excellent went beyond our expectations and provided lots of learning materials and testing materials for ACT. Made my son comfortable with tutoring, who usually has a difficult time with it.
Hntsa is an extraordinary tutor. He is highly professional, and his knowledge and understanding of the subject matter benefited our son greatly. Our son improved his ACT score, as well as his test taking skills at school. Hntsa is personable, patient, easy to relate to, and he took ample time to explain the material. Hntsa is greatly concerned about his student’s success. He tailored his tutoring approach to enhance our son’s strengths, and identify and strength his weak areas. We are very grateful for Hntsa and would definitely request him as a tutor again!
Kevin is the most outstanding tutor I have ever met or even ever spoken with. He is a retired physician who had great teachers during his career and now works with students to try and have a positive influence on their lives. My son did both high school Math and Science tutoring with him AND also did ACT test preparation with him. My son's ACT scores went from 24 before working with Kevin to 33 after working with him for just 3 months! I cannot speak more highly of him. If you want your son or daughter to really excel - you better at least meet with this guy! Darren G. Northbrook, IL
Guy truly cared about helping my son achieve his full potential on the ACT test. Highly recommend! He is very knowledgeable in tutoring and test preparation!
remy was a wonderful tutor! she helped me prep in a short period of time to take the SAT, and with her guidance i felt more confident going into the test. Plus I got a great score! Couldn’t recommend her enough!
Mr. Glen is the best tutor in the world. He worked with my son and daughter in math and ACT Prep. He supported my daughter in Geometry, Calculus. Algebra II / Trigonometry, Calculus AB and ACT Prep. He supported my son in the same areas plus Algebra. It's is very important to him that your children fully understands the concepts and are not simply working problems by memorizing steps. He truly cares about your children performing at the highest level. There were times if he didn't finish something with them during the hour, he would call the house to follow up. He always keeps my husband and I posted on their progress and he let's them know directly how well they are doing. He really allowed my husband and I to have peace of mind by helping to prepare our kids academically. He is very professional and works with us to accommodate busy schedules by having hours later in the evening. Both my sone and daughter respected Mr Glen and enjoyed what he helped them accomplish. We thank God that Mr Glen is a part of our village.
Tim tutored my daughter for the ACT test. We were looking to improve her score. Tim was/is very knowledgeable and showed her different ways to cross-check her work quickly. We haven't gotten her scores back as of today. But she felt more confident after this test than the others. Will update with results. Tim was also flexible with arranging time to meet.
The ACT Test Prep Tutor was excellent. They brought materials, tests and flash cards and even created a plan for how they were going to get my daughter ready for the Test. My daughters score jumped 4 points with their help!
I could not have been happier with the results from using More Than S.A.T. in preparation for the ACT. While my older children had used other prep courses for the ACT with satisfactory results, I decided to make a change for my youngest child. More Than S.A.T. had a more unique approach to studying for the ACT. More Than S.A.T’s academic coach was able to tailor a study program specific to my son’s strengths and weaknesses. What’s more, the consultant’s suggestions as to how to manage the test, while taking it, were very beneficial. The result: a 6 point increase. Thank you, More Than S.A.T.!
Mrs.Morris tutored me in the subject Reading in preparation for my second try at the ACT standardized test. My score increased by 3 increasing my overall score by 2 points. I was very pleased considering I had only had one session with her. I would recommend her services to anyone.
1. One-on-one attention 2. I teach from your perspective 3. No question is "stupid" or too easy or too difficult 4. I won't move on until you understand

I have prepared over 300 students for the ACT Test and my strategies have been published in an ACT Preparation book. The sessions will be tailored to the student's own learning style and are upbeat and fun. We work with actual questions from recent ACT tests, using the questions as a base to learn strategy, tricks, and academic concepts. Give me a call for more information. Thanks!

Hello! My name is Enyi O., and I just graduated from Harvard University in May 2013. At Harvard, I majored in Neurobiology with a minor in Global Health and Health Policy. I also served as president of Harvard's Nigerian Student Association and manager of the Harvard Men's Varsity Tennis Team. Before I left for Harvard, I attended Marian Catholic High School, where I was captain of the tennis team and a National Honor Society board member. While in high school, I scored a 35 on the ACT (35 English, 36 Math, 34 Reading, and 34 Science) and scored above 700 on 3 different SAT II Subject Tests (770 Math Level II, 760 Chemistry, and 710 History). Since then, I've been able to help over 85 students improve their ACT scores by an average of 4.3 points. In the past, I've worked for Revolution Prep, a leading national test prep company, and Gold Test Prep, a test prep company run by Harvard students. Right now, I'm preparing for business school, and I'm looking to help out current high-school students who wish to score high on the ACT or SAT. I'm offering one-on-one tutoring, both online and in person in the south suburbs of Chicago. I am flexible in regards to price and location, because I truly love to help students achieve their ACT score goals. Having applied and been accepted to 20 highly selective colleges (including all the Ivy Leagues), I am also providing extensive college admissions consulting, from general application strategies and essay reviews to mock interviews. Finally, in terms of tutoring and admissions consulting, I am offering free 30-minute to 1-hour consultations to discuss student goals, general test strategies, and the college admissions process. Please feel free to contact me if you want to know more about my services or experience. Thank you!
