Mr. Kaddoura has been helping me with the Quantitative section of the GRE. Overall, he has been a pleasure to work with. I'm not really the type of person that enjoys math. I've never needed a tutor before and I had a lot of reservations about hiring one. However, before I started working with Mr. Kaddoura, I had too much test anxiety to even take a practice GRE. Today, I took one timed--and got a 154 for the Quant section. Hooray! 1) He knows the test very well. He knows how to prepare students for it. 2) HE KNOWS MATH. WELL. He was professor for a lot of years prior to this. (Can't remember how many...) 3) He is incredibly patient. I will give up on myself, before he will give up on me--which is encouraging. 4) He will adjust his teaching style to meet your learning style. 5) He's very flexible in terms of appointments and very accommodating. He will bring prep materials for you: like flashcards, handouts with formulas, etc. 6) Essentially, if you have a goal, he's going to do everything to help you achieve it. Just be upfront about it and be willing to work hard. Mr. Kaddoura will help you get there. 7) Turnaround is quick. I an impatient person. I like to see results. It's been less than a month, and I've seen my own math aptitude VASTLY increase within a few short weeks. I'm even getting quicker on timed practice tests...(which, I never thought would happen.) It's honestly the best result I could have hoped for. 8) He really does care about all the students that he tutors, which is rare these days, lets be honest. If you're reading these reviews, obviously you're already thinking about hiring him. My advice would just be to go ahead and do it. Look at all the reviews below me. It's an easy decision to make. You won't be disappointed. This is a bold statement, but I'm going to put it out there anyways because I believe it to be true: I think you will be hard-pressed to find a better tutor. I seriously doubt one exists.

Having Bill Pow work with my daughter was one of the best choices I've made for her. On there first meeting he was able to zero in on what were the areas they should work on and what strategies she should developed. My daughter, who really didn't want tutoring, especially during summer vacation, was very thankful she was able to work with Bill. She says she feels far better prepared for her ACT retake. Bill was so flexible and responsive when scheduling appointments. He always came prepared and each session was very productive.

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.

Mr. Gruber is an excellent tutor for the ACT/SAT. My daughter really liked the tutoring sessions with Mr. Gruber. She found their tutoring sessions productive and helpful. 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. We highly recommend Mr. Gruber as a SAT/ACT tutor.

I found Novastar Prep to be very responsive and professional. The tutors placed with my son after an extensive concussion he incurred were very easy to work with, communicate with, and very knowledgeable in each subject area. Novastar will always be my tutor company of choice if needed in the future.

Ben Schwabb/physics & engineering tutor is a real professional: knowledgable, concise, thorough, and presents a well-planned lesson each time. He helped my high schooler pull up his physics grade dramatically and pre-taught an electrical engineering course to my college-age son to get a jumpstart on his fall class. Alex/director is extremely responsive, provides quality tutors quickly, and stays in contact to ensure client satisfaction. Every company should operate this way.

This is our second year using Advanced Math Tutors, which I discovered through an online search, after not finding someone through “word of mouth” means. I was a tad hesitant to try the service, but decided to give it a try based upon the positive reviews and our pressing need to find a strong Calculus tutor to help my son. Last year, we used "David" who was great and extremely effective at helping my son "get it" (... in contrast to his classroom experience, where he had been struggling the entire prior semester, unfortunately). Once he started meeting with David (via SKYPE, by the way, which we LOVE and find extremely accommodating in today’s busy world), the proverbial "lightbulbs" immediately went off and continued to do so during their tutoring sessions throughout the second semester of Calculus AB. This year, David's schedule didn't work with ours, but thankfully Glen, the owner, was available to tutor my son for Calculus BC. As wonderful an experience as we had with David, our experience with Glen is even more so! My son’s assessment of Glen is that he is an "excellent" tutor, “very flexible,” “fun” and “cares.” I echo these sentiments and will also add that Glen is very accommodating and responsive. I also appreciated his commitment to my son and his willingness and ease in communicating, as needed, directly with my son’s teacher. I’m very glad to have discovered Advanced Math Tutors. They’ve made a world of difference to my son’s understanding of the material, as well as his grades, confidence levels, and general happiness. Thank you Advanced Math Tutors!

Getting a good test score requires 2 things: good resources and motivation to keep studying. Reetika provided me with both of these. She pushed me to confront my weaknesses and was there for me when I needed advice or encouragment to keep studying. Her knowledge of these standardized tests and her own personal experiences make her well versed and how to prepare for these exams. It also helps that she is incredibly smart and can also explain her logic very effectively. The difference about Reetika is that she really cares for her students and I always enjoyed our sessions together. Without her help I would not have gotten the score that I did on my PCAT and I’m eternally grateful that I found her. I would undoubtedly recommend her for prep!

Jessica and her team at Modern Muse Education are sincere, intelligent, and professional. Their new Gaithersburg facility is wonderful and provides students with a comfortable place to get test help (she even provides snacks!). Jessica and her team are not only extremely patient and educated on the test themselves, but also connect the testing content to public and private school curriculums, customizing a student’s test prep course based on their current grade level and course schedule. The course provides students with everything they need to succeed on the test, as well as how to evaluate their test scores to identify what they need to improve on future tests. I 100% reccomend Modern Muse Education for all students in need of SAT/ACT prep!

My niece took some SAT prep classes with Brendan, and she had a great experience working with him. Not only Brendan was always prepared to teach, but he was very patient with my niece and was able to breakdown each lesson in a way that made it easy for my niece to understand. He is reliable and very professional. I would definitely recommend Brendan to anyone who is looking for SAT prep classes.

Our daughter improved significantly on her SAT Math score after having 6 weeks of individual tutoring. We are going to schedule more tutoring prior to the next SAT too given the outstanding results. Normally after any kind of tutoring the most you can hope for is an increase of no more than 50 points but her score went up 70 points!! And, she very much enjoyed her experience with Club Z's tutors. I would highly recommend this organization as they are very flexible schedule wise and the tutors are so helpful and fun. Thank you Club Z!!

I was really struggling with the math and reading sections on the SAT. I was contacted by Universal Design Tutoring and I couldn't be more thankful. I needed a high score to get into the college I was really hoping to get into because my gpa wasn't the greatest. My tutor was so knowledgeable and put things in lamens terms for me and I was able to get the score I needed. I'm so happy:) I would highly recommend their services.
