Kathy was instrumental in helping our Senior HS daughter with key test-taking skills so that she could better her ACT testing results. Although she's an excellent student, our daughter finds college testing a challenge in areas such as science and reading. Together, they came up with a weekly strategy. They went over the incorrect answers to practice tests to find patterns and trigger words so they could identify problem sources. As importantly, Kathy encouraged our daughter and gave her the confidence and tools she needed to use the time wisely during these tests without getting anxious. She also made her accountable for studying during the summer - that's invaluable! We've very much enjoyed working with her and would recommend her to other students who might be challenged with ACT testing!
Ryan helped my son with SAT preparation. He is knowledgeable, professional and on time every class. My son did very well on his test. I highly recommend him to any student seeking professional help.
I hired Lisa to tutor my daughter for her SAT prep. Her scores went up significantly and her writing component was very high. Lisa is an expert, educated and a great mentor.
He is AWESOME!!!!! I would highly recommend. I was in an accelerated math class, with little math knowledge and he made is easy to understand and follow. Great tutor!!!
Very accessible scheduling wise. Great explanations and approach to coaching, was really a great fit for me (working through the problems and analyzing why I made the wrong choice along with what makes the right one right) Wonderful advice and insight for the whole college and testing experience: what books to buy, tests to take, etc. Overall great person, great teacher, great experience, great results!!
Lisa is one of the best writing tutors that I have ever had. She is smart, kind, and believes in every single one of her students. I first started working with Lisa to prep for the ACT. She always believed in me and encouraged me to keep working towards my goals. After getting through the ACT, Lisa helped me with my college application and supplemental essays. She helped me to get my vision into solidified and ideas. She has a hyper focus on making sure that her students voice is heard. Her respect and confidence in me is what made me believe in myself and my work.
we highly recommend Anthony to tutor your child their college prep needs. he is very knowledgeable with SAT OR ACT and college application process.
Heather was able to quickly assess my daughters needs to prep for her exam. She did an amazing job working with her. We were very pleased with her services.
Club Z has been nothing but amazing to me. The whole experience, from the enrollment to the actual tutoring, has been nothing short of fantastic. The company is very professional, friendly, and accommodative, and you immediately get a sense that the tutors really want to see you succeed. With the actual tutoring I've achieved fabulous results, raising my test scores a substantial amount. Tutors are very friendly, making tutoring and communicating easy and stress free. I highly recommend Club Z to anyone in search of any kind of tutor. I have no doubt that club Z will match you up with the perfect tutor for your needs.
Linda has tutored two of my sons over the last five years. My older son was able to improve his SAT scores as well as perfect his college application essay. He got into his first college choice. My younger son had problems expressing himself in writing and started working with Linda in 8th grade. Later he studied with Linda for ACT and got into his first college choice. Overall I was impressed with Linda's professionalism, great energy and great rapport with kids. They loved studying with her. In addition I could always rely on Linda being up to date on latest changes in SAT/ACT tests, which was tremendously helpful last year. We all feel very fortunate to have Linda as our ' Language Coach'.
Barry was a great SAT tutor. He certainly knew the material and test-taking strategies. In addition (and as important), his sincere interest and encouragement helped build my daughter’s self confidence, allowing her to approach the tests with greater calm.
Very quick response. Thoughtful about choice of tutor to work with our daughter (who can be a challenge!). They got to work immediately on an upcoming test and my daughter did very well. Celine from Club Z has been amazing so far and obviously genuinely cares about the results. We will be hiring Club Z again!
Ron is a deeply knowledgeable, professional, and polite tutor. At first, I was a bit apprehensive about hiring and meeting a private tutor, without the expensive brand guarantee of a full-service center, but Ron's friendly demeanor quickly put me at ease and assured me I had made the right choice. Additionally, he was both on time with materials in hand and ready to work as planned, as well as, flexible, accommodating, and understanding if my busy schedule required sudden change. Last, but definitely not least, his breadth of knowledge was particularly useful in helping me prepare for the SAT, as the test covers a wide range of mathematical concepts. All of which is why I would highly recommend Ron to anyone seeking help! Thanks again, Ron.
Great help with my sat prep. Very knowledgeable and will see results.
Gold Test Prep not only strengthened my skills but my confidence in test taking. They made preparing for the GMAT manageable and convenient. I have a job so the option to study with a tutor at a library or via Skype was a huge plus. My tutor was encouraging, helping me to set realistic goals and reach them within a limited time period. I saw considerable growth with my GMAT score from the practice exams to the extent that I only needed to take the test once. Can't thank Gold Test Prep enough, at the end of the day they produce results.
Clare has been my math tutor for a year. She has given me the confidence to not be afraid that I will fail at my tests and also help me understand my homework. Plus we have fun! She gives me other web sites that I use to practice math. I like that we can Skype because she can answer my calls whenever I need her help.
Jim tutored my daughters for a very important math test for over 2 hours today. He is very smart, funny, and easy going which made them both feel less nervous to begin with. Also, he gave them very important pointers for the test and encouraged them that they will do well. I highly recommend him to everyone
Lexie helped my son Connor (who has dyslexia) study for high school homework, tests and especially the SAT! We came to love her and thank her for all she did. Connor is now in college and making deans list.

All of our tutors have at least a M.A. degree and experience teaching and tutoring. We work on a pay-as-you go basis which means that you only pay for the sessions your child uses.

There are a number of things I do that stand out. First, I'm not out to make a big profit from this. You get the amount of service you need, and meet the goals that are realistic, at a reasonable price. There is nobody, and I do mean NOBODY! who can teach some learning disabled kids better, faster, and to the best of their abilities than I can. I have recommendations from professional peers, a recent supervisor, and parents that will tell you that, time and time again. I can - when conditions are right - teach people how to tell which hand is which, In ONE TO FOUR MINUTES. These are severely dyslexic people, who have NEVER been able to tell their right hand from their left, through ages 11 to 21. Sound impossible? It's real. I travel to you, unless you'd rather meet somewhere central, like a local library. So much of what you pay goes to car expense. To balance costs, I use longer tutoring sessions of 1 to 2 hours per session, and fewer sessions, when possible. When you can't sit that long, we take short breaks and / or have shorter sessions anyway.
