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.
Laura was a great tutor for my brother during his last minute ACT prep! She gave him some very helpful strategies and helped him to maximize his testing time. He went up a point and if I were to do it again, I would certainly hire Laura earlier! Would highly recommend!
I came across Steve Byer in my pursuit to find the perfect GRE prep course. I spent 10 hours working with Steve and it was the best decision I made. Not only were Steves services a fraction of the cost of big name companies like Kaplan, Manhattan Prep, Princeton Review, etc. But also, I benefitted from the one-on-one nature of Steve's tutoring service. I am NOT a confident test taker, and especially when it comes to standardized tests. Steve was instrumental in helping to ease some of the anxiety I had and also tailored our program to focus on the areas in which I needed the most work. Steve is extremely qualified and was never judgemental regarding any questions or concerns I had. When I first started working with Steve, my practice test scores were in the 140s. I saw incredible improvement over the course of the next 4 weeks. Thanks to Steve, when I sat for the actual test, I received the highest scores of any practice test I took during my time working with Steve. I couldn't be happier with the time and dedication Steve put forth on my behalf. I am ecstatic with my scores and unbelievably grateful that I will not need to take the GRE for a second time. Thank you, Steve!! Finally, I want to emphasize how passionate Steve is toward his students. He was 100% available to me outside of scheduled tutoring hours and was more than willing to answer questions and look over work during his free time. There were many times in which he checked in with me to see how I was progressing. This dedication would not occur with a larger company like Kaplan or Princeton Review. I highly recommend Steve to anyone who is seeking help for standardized tests and/or tutoring in any academic areas. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Steve!! -Kelly B.

Thank you so much Ramona! I would not have managed statistic classes without your help. Her private math classes helped me graduate from school and even from university. I can truly recommend working with Ramona. She is the best help I could have ever imagine and her classes are absolutely worth the money. I also recommended her classes to a few friends and they all gave positive feedback. Please let me know if you need more detailed information.
We hired Michael to tutor our son, a freshman, in honors math. Our son was very comfortable with Michael's teaching style and responded very well to the tutoring. Michael is very approachable and provided our son with very pragmatic advice and tools to assist him in overcoming his struggles and adjustment to high school math. I highly recommend Michael, particularly for high school level students.
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.
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!
My daughter received excellent score of 780(scale of 800) on New SAT-Math thanks to Mr. Patel's expertise. Her previous score was 610. We were struggling to find the teacher for New SAT. She is not fond of word problems and gets frustrated. But Mr. Patel was able to make concepts much simpler and easier to understand. We also signed up for his College Consulting Service, where his team of professional coaches work with us one on one at a fraction of the cost. We are very satisfied and definitely refer Mr. Patel to my friends and family. Thanks Mr. Patel for your support.
Best value for your money!! The Tutors are qualified, the materials and the Test Prep books are top notch. And best of all the Director was with us every step of the way. Calling us and making sure that we were making progress as anticipated. I give them the best points for staying on top of everything to make sure that my child was successful in school.
After completing the ACT prep course at Learning Ascent, my son got a composite score of 30. English: 32, Math: 33, Reading: 29, and Science: 26. He took the writing portion too, but we do not have results for that yet. Prior to tutoring, his score on a practice ACT test was a 26. The tutors Sean worked with helped him improve his scores. Overall, very happy with his results!
We brought in Navin to help our daughter for her preparation with SAT prep with just a month left. Navin was very flexible to begin with driving down to our home or holding the class at his place. As days progressed Navin helped us narrow down on what we needed to focus on and drilled down the concepts. My daughter would look forward to the class as she realized that her skills were getting stronger and stronger and I attribute that Navin's calm and passionate approach to teaching. Overall it was a very pleasant experience and I highly recommend Navin.
Charlie tutored my son for the ACT and did an exceptional job. He worked with him both on general test taking skills as well as the specific areas where he needed the most help. Charlie is great at working with boys who do not have the longest attention span, as well as those who may not feel they "need" tutoring. He really caters his tutoring style to what he believes will work best for that student. Charlie is also very flexible and was able to work in tutoring time around my son's other activities. After working with Charlie, my son felt much more confident in his ability to do well on the test and improved his scores significantly in all areas. We will be using him again for my daughter in a couple of years.
Highest recommendation! Sarah has worked with two of my boys on ACT/SAT prep and they both benefited greatly. She helped them build skills and confidence, which resulted in improved scores. Sarah is smart, creative, positive and very experienced; we also appreciated her willingness to work around busy schedules.
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.!
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!
Bonnie Dane has been a stellar English tutor for our high school son. She has been working with him since he was a sophomore and throughout his junior year. She helped with ACT prep, vocabulary development, composition, style, grammar, pertinent English homework when necessary, essays etc. Bonnie always used a professional approach to accomplish these objectives, coupled with humor, sensitivity, individualized her approach to our son's learning style and helped increase his critical thinking ability. She is reliable and trustworthy. Bonnie has helped our son have As in English and Speech. We are most grateful that we found Bonnie. Our son has really come to appreciate his sessions with Ms Dane. We highly recommend Bonnie for other students and trust she will make a big difference in their learning experience.
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!
