Very happy with the experience. My daughter ended with a 1310, a big improvement from where we started. My son is a junior next year. We are already planning for him to get a head start taking the SAT at the end of the summer!Oct 21, 2019
So lucky I found Mr. Howard. My daughter said she wishes he was her real math teacher. Knowledgeable, Dependable, Flexible.Oct 21, 2019

Howard was amazing to work with for our son's SAT. He was on time, had great communication but what was most amazing was his dedication to our son to be successful in his test taking.Dec 16, 2017Verified
Howard worked with my daughter on the ACT. She had taken the test two times and never been able to get above 22 composite. After 7 weeks, she took the test one last time and raise her score to a 26 composite. She was so happy. She’s a good student in school, but doesn’t test well in timed situations. We continued to work with Howard on college essays and applications. Our family is very happy with the results.Dec 15, 2017
Howard was excellent help for my daughter. She has a learning disability and many extracurricular activities. My daughter said he was one of the best teachers she has ever had and wished he taught in her high school. He was patient. He never criticized her or made her feel inadequate. He just showed her what she did right and how to do better the next time. She gained confidence each week, and she started to look forward to tutoring and college applications. Also, we had to reschedule a few times because of her extracurricular activities and schedule changes, and it was never a problem; Howard was very accommodating. Britney’s score went from a 1030 to 1190 and she was able to apply to Appalachian State, her first-choice school. We will be contacting him next year for our son.Dec 15, 2017
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $80/hr for SAT/ACT private tutoring and college counseling, $60/hr for academic tutoring grades 11 and 12 and college application preparation, and $50/hr for academic tutoring grades 7, 8, 9, and 10. SAT/ACT tutoring sessions last 2 hours once a week. Academic tutoring sessions are 1.5 hours generally with a 1 hour minimum. There is a discount for small group tutoring. For example, if two to three students wish to tutor SAT together, the fee is reduced, there is a discount for small group tutoring. For example, if two to three students wish to tutor SAT together, the fee is reduced: 2 students pay $50.00 each, 3 students pay $40.00 each.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I offer free consultations so that I may introduce myself, meet the student and parent(s), assess the needs of the student, create a plan of action, and schedule sessions. I tutor at the the student's house, preferably at a kitchen or dining room table for convenience and supervision. However, I am flexible and willing to discuss alternatives.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have earned a B.A. in Philosophy from Tulane University and B.A. in English Literature and a Master's in Teaching - Secondary School English Literature from The Citadel. I have worked for The Princeton Review and Charleston and Berkeley County school systems as a certified teacher, substitute teacher, and tutor. I have 18 years experience and presently carry a North Carolina Teacher's certification.
