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.
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
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.
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.
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!!
These guys are good. Brought up my practice test scores significantly and helping me with my college essay.
Gary tutored my daughter for SAT prep early last fall and gave a boost to her confidence in just one session. He worked through practice questions with her and helped her get on track for self-study, including alerting us to upcoming changes in the SAT. We really appreciated his help.

Small group classes or one to one tutoring available. While I focus on the Writing, Reading and Essay sections of the exams, I work in tandem with a retired UNH mathematics professor, Ihab Farag. Together, we prepare students for all aspects of the SAT and/or the ACT.
My name is Irene. Lena Lipatova tutored my two children. Lena is an excellent tutor and a great teacher. At the first session she gave a test to my kids to evaluate their knowledge. Based on the result of the test Lena planned her sessions to help them prepare for the SAT. She was very thorough in covering the subjects and answering questions. Lena was very patient providing explanations till my kids completely understood what they needed to do in order to improve their SAT scores. Lena gave my kids a lot of valuable tips. The result is: both of my kids significantly improved their SAT scores and eventually were accepted in good colleges, Babson College and University of New Hampshire. I would highly recommend Lena Lipatova as an excellent tutor.

We understand our students and empathize with their frustrations. We understand learning is not about memorization and help students build lifelong study skills. We know every student has the capacity to achieve great things.
Tutoring. LSAT prep. Super helpful and patient. A great instructor. Highly recommended.
I cannot thank you enough for your help with the test prep and admissions process. You have a sensitivity and a way of working with both parents and students that makes us all feel comfortable and supported. Not just anyone can do that. This is a huge process for all of us and I feel like a door has opened in a less stressful and informative way for us to constructively start tackling how to get him into college. Thank you. SHEILA
She is great! I am preparing to take a placement test, and she was very knowledgeable. She was thorough, and patient with teaching. I am so happy to have found her. I feel much more confident about my exam!
Quantum Prep was excellent. My daughter had decent SAT scores but wanted to try to raise them. After a few sessions with her tutor, she could see that it was helping. She just received her scores and we are thrilled. Quantum Prep was worth every penny. _Austin Prep parent (Reading, MA.)
