We hired Arbor for SAT and ACT help for our daughter. She did very well with an excellent tutor. Highly recommended.
Oliver was a great help to my daughter reviewing the math section for the ACT and SAT's. Her SAT score increased by 130 points! We were are so pleased, that I have already asked Oliver to tutor my younger daughter with pre-calc and SAT prep in the Fall....Thanks Oliver!!!
My son has been working with Ryan and Patrick in ACT prep online. They are both excellent.
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.
My Son has an IEP and Michael worked with him to prep for the ACT. We met ahead of time, reviewed my sons strengths and weaknesses and Michael set up a study plan for him. My son enjoyed the study sessions and practiced between meetings, I was impressed how well my son responded, homework is not one of his favorites. I was also given weekly progress updates. My son completed the exam and was comfortable because he was well prepared by Michael, I highly recommend him, he worked well with my son and showed interest in his success.
I was looking for an online ACT prep program for my daughter. We thought an online program would be best given her schedule. Not knowing a lot about online prep programs, I started doing some research online to see what was available. The typical companies all have programs but the Prepscholar name was new to me. I did some more research and had my daughter give it a try before I purchased it. Features that appealed to me were the strategy of concentrating on weaknesses, the 12 month access, and the ability to visually gauge progress. I will say that before you purchase an online prep package that you need to understand how your child works and if they have the discipline to use an online tool. If an online solution is for you, I think Prepscholar is a reasonable investment to aid your student in preparing for the ACT. My daughter did very well on her first try and Prepscholar was certainly a contributing factor.
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.
Kathie was wonderful with my daughter. We only had a short time to work together before my daughter had to take her ACT and because of Kathie my daughter felt prepared. Will absolutely use her again for my other daughter!
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.
we highly recommend Anthony to tutor your child their college prep needs. he is very knowledgeable with SAT OR ACT and college application process.
My daughter found Carissa very helpful for SAT prep. She used her 4 times and found the time well spent.
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'.
Angela worked with me, helped me select colleges, wrote drafts of essays and prepped me for college interviews - and then she helped me with nursing school! When I had my first interviews, I was confident and ready - we had done role plays many times! I really enjoyed her calm nature and her reassuring ways. She set a realistic timeframe for me, and was always accessible by phone or email. As a first generation college student, my parents were really worried, but Angela made the whole process much easier and so much less stressful. She is detail oriented, and relates so well to what kids and their families are going through. Working with her was great - and I definitely recommend her!
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.
Great help with my sat prep. Very knowledgeable and will see results.
Jared is reliable, reasonable and an excellent tutor. I hired him to tutor SAT and ACT students at the last minute and he was willing to dive right in. He helped the students increase the their scores substantially and they enjoyed their lessons with him. If you want a knowledgeable, energetic and friendly tutor, choose Jared.

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.
