He is very friendly and easy to work with, but he gets straight down to business with what you are trying to achieve in the subject which for me was SAT. Gave a lot of tips and strategies on how to do well on the SAT, and gave warm up practice problems to do during the sessions and as homework. He will also not move on until you fully mastered the lesson being taught, so you're absolutely getting your money's worth!!
Kate is truly the most amazing tutor you will find. I searched for weeks for someone to help me with a graduate school prep math class, and although there were many options, the people I talked with seemed difficult to relate to and even though they seemed intelligent, I didn't know if I could learn well from their style of teaching. Then...I found Kate. She not only knew all of the material that I had to learn, but was able to explain things in a way that I understood. She is extremely patient and actually made the material as interesting as possible. I would absolutely recommend her for GMAT prep, any college level or grad school math. Her background says it all but when you work with her you see that she is much more-it is her personality and ability to break concepts down that really make the difference. It was also very easy to schedule and communicate with her.
Best SAT tutors around.
We live in Troy, and Bennett comes to our home each week to provide a pre-calc tutor session. Our daughter (high school junior) is very confident with Bennett's knowledge. He has been tutoring her on pre-calc and helping her be better prepared to take the math part of the ACT test. Each week Bennett helps her with her class homework (if needed) and goes over and explains ACT practice questions and answers with her. Bennett is friendly while professional, has been easy to work with, and our daughter thinks he's a great tutor. :)
Working with him was great! I actually learned a lot on the math section, and improved my sat score from a 1270 to a 1400. I highly recommend.
Jatin did a great job! I believe the money I paid was definitely worth it. We focused on Math for the SAT.
Judy did both ACT and SAT tutoring for my son. She is very well organized and methodical in her approach. He felt much more comfortable during the test!
My 15 year old son is being tutored for Algebra 2. He went very unwillingly to the first session. He is eager for the next. Mr. Abron engaged him and gave him insight into why things were not working out for him. INSTANT CONFIDENCE! It also helped that he was nice, patient, smiling, and extremely knowledgeable about the content. He provided resources that the school was not providing and gave us a game plan that will carry him through the school week. Besides all of that, he strikes me as a wonderful, caring person to whom my son will make a stronger connection. Nurturing and fatherly conversation. Very, very satisfied!
We were so pleased with the individual tutoring that Brad gave our son, Tyler. He was so accommodating to Tyler’s busy sports and work schedule, was always on time, and professional. Brad’s positive and patient way quickly helped to establish a good rapport. Brad took the time in the beginning to assess Tyler’s strengths and weaknesses, so that they could make the most of their tutoring time. He knew exactly what to focus on to help Tyler meet his goal. Brad’s expertise regarding the SAT was exceptional. He shared with Tyler the techniques and tips that would make him successful. Tyler went from a 1320 on the PSAT to a 1460 on the SAT due to Brad’s outstanding guidance! It was money well spent! Thanks again! Cathy and Lee S.
Shan tutored me over the summer in Organic Chemistry. He always came well prepared for each session and really knows his stuff. More importantly, though, he was able to distill the material for easy understanding. I highly recommend Shan if you are in need of reliable and knowledgable tutor.
She provided weekly questions for my daughter to practice for her SAT Her scores improved by 100 points within an eight week period She is very professional and punctual
I took a summer Calculus class and was struggling to pass. After I hired Taylor, my grades went up tremendously. I felt like I was always well reviewed for the tests because I actually understood the material.
Christine Kalcic was instrumental to my success at MSU as a premed student. She proved to be an asset to my success during my first semester, and I continued to work with her throughout the rest of my coursework. She is proficient in multiple subjects, and is excellent at breaking down material and getting you caught back up when behind. Christine was invaluable for exam prep and taught the material to truly understand it, not just to pass. Working with her taught me time management and how to approach very complex material and a tough course load. I truly feel very lucky and fortunate to have worked with her. I have recommended her to multiple students of various age, and she has done an excellent job with everyone. There is no way I could have taken on the course load I did without Christine, she is brilliant and just a really awesome and kind person!
Bettina is an amazing educator. She is very thorough and cares about her students. Her teaching style is unique where she is challenging yet not intimidating. Bettina brings the best out in her students. I would highly recommend Bettina. She teaches ESL, SAT, ACT, as well as reading and language. She has students all over the world. It was an honor to work and learn from her.

Hello! My name is James Mandilk, and I am a recent graduate from a local high school, Walled Lake Central, and a current student at Yale University. I was fortunate to earn a perfect score on the ACT as a junior (36 Composite + 12 Writing), and now I'm providing other students with both the knowledge and the strategies they need to succeed on the ACT. Ivy Insiders is a different kind of test prep company: - Ivy Insiders students increase their ACT score by 4.4 points on average - that's double the results of most test prep companies. - Our instructors score in the 99th percentile, rather than in the 90th. Moreover, since most applicants are Ivy League undergraduates who have impressive ACT scores already and those with the best mentoring abilities can be selected from a pool of many qualified individuals. - Our curriculum is revolutionary: we believe that the ACT is not a test of "intelligence" or "aptitude," but of concrete skills that can be improved through practice. Since the ACT is a standardized exams, strategies that succeeded before will still succeed today. - Ivy Insiders is also a socially responsible company, offering scholarships to those in need to ensure that test prep is available for everyone. I am offering free events, private tutoring and classroom courses this summer. Full course information is available on my website, and you may receive $100 off if you use code MI4TT. Thank you for taking the initiative to invest in your future! James Mandilk, Yale College

We help parents and students understand and master the new SAT, focusing on what's different and the way to practice for the test based on how much time the student has to prepare. Each student takes a complete practice test from which is created a PPA (personal plan of action). We provide tips for getting teachers involved and referrals for one-on-one tutoring, use games to make skill mastery fun and challenging and place students in online study groups to motivate and encourage each learner. At the end of the session, a post test is given, along with an updated study plan for continued review of the weak skills up until the test date. Options for learning include the following: * Online * In a Classroom Setting * At Your Home * A combination of two or more of the above, for maximum SAT score gains
