Karl really knows his stuff! I was impressed with the time he spent looking at my student's previous test report & scores to formulate a customized plan. He kept my student on track and his resources are also really helpful. We recommend!

I am delighted to provide a glowing recommendation for Karl, our exceptional SAT tutor. From our very first interaction, Karl exhibited a remarkable commitment to helping my son Jacob succeed in the SATs. Karl's dedication to his work became evident right from the start. His quick response to my initial inquiry about the SAT sections and his flexibility in accommodating our time zone for scheduling sessions demonstrated a strong desire to make the learning experience as convenient and effective as possible. One of Karl's key strengths lies in his ability to accurately identify my son's weak points and assign appropriate materials for review. His tailored approach ensured that my son was consistently working on areas that needed improvement, allowing for targeted and efficient learning. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of Karl's tutoring is his patience and thoroughness in reviewing incorrect answers with detailed explanations. He took the time to ensure that my son not only understood the correct answers but also the underlying concepts. As a result, my son's grasp of the material deepened significantly in all areas covered by the SAT test. The materials Karl provided were not only comprehensive but also highly relevant to the topics that needed to be addressed. This not only facilitated effective preparation but also boosted my son's confidence in tackling the SATs. Karl's communication with parents is noteworthy. After every lesson, he kept us informed about our son's progress, providing a sense of transparency and allowing us to stay actively engaged in the learning journey. In summary, we wholeheartedly recommend Karl to anyone seeking to achieve high SAT scores. His rates are not only reasonable but, more importantly, the service he provides is nothing short of exceptional. Thanks to Karl, my son not only gained valuable SAT test-taking techniques but also developed a deep understanding of the topics covered in the test. We couldn't be more satisfied with the results and the overall experience. Karl is an outstanding SAT tutor, and his services are absolutely worth every penny.

Karl has great teaching skills! He teaches the concepts really well. Is always on time. When my daughter started, her score was 1140 at the practice test and in 31/2 months it had gone up to 1550. She took his lessons for SAT. He always kept me in the loop with my daughters progress. He gives a lot of practice problems too. He has all the latest content so you don’t need to buy several other books. Would highly recommend him.

Karl has been helping my son prep for both the PSAT and SAT. He does a good job assessing the students skill level and works from there. He is patient and clearly explains the task at hand. My son actually looks forward to his sessions with Karl. Not only does he help with test prep, but he has helped greatly with improving study skills and habits as well. He is very easy to communicate with and he always responds in a timely manner. The sessions are conveniently set up through zoom and the entire process is very turn key and user friendly. We are very happy with Karl’s tutoring services and plan to continue with him as well.
