My daughter, who had already scored a 1980 on the SAT, improved her reading and writing point total by 110 after just two hours of focused SAT strategy consulting with Kathy. She very efficiently and effectively communicated how preparing for this test is much more about approach than content. Even when content has been mastered by many good high school students, it is the lack of a good approach can throw them off their game on test day. I can also attest to her keen acumen across business disciplines, particularly financial analysis and writing. The work Kathy did no doubt helped keep her clear-headed and confident when taking the subject tests. Thank you, Kathy. You made what could have been stressful for my daughter "just having a few good talks with Kathy." Karen
I am so impressed my my son's tutor, Ezra Gouvea! He has been helping my son with Algebra 2 and we couldnt be more pleased!
I recently ran across a review about Quantum Prep and felt like I just had to share my tutoring story as well. I graduated from Lexington High School in Lexington Massachusetts. Lexington High School is a huge school. When I say huge, I mean I graduated with five hundred and eleven classmates. I was always proud to go to Lexington High, we were rated number 19 in 2014 by Newsweek in their Americas Top Public Schools. Luckily my class sizes were always small and it was not too hard to get help from the teacher. The first semester of my junior year I was taking five classes. I was looking into pre-med, so I took a lot of hard science classes that gave me at least two hours of homework a night. I also worked on the weekends, swam competitively, played in the jazz band and was active in my religious youth group. That year I was taking AP Chemistry as a challenge and knew I was going to have a tough time with it. My teacher, Mrs. Compton, was great! She explained everything really well and broke it down for the class. I just really couldnt get everything in my notebook and in my head with enough time to move on to the next topic, so Id lose information here and there, making it really hard to answer test questions. I got the first F in my entire academic career on the first quiz. Im one of those people who expect a lot from themselves, and I expected As. I felt really bad about myself for the first two quizzes because I wasnt coming even close to what I knew I could do. In addition, because I was spending so much time working on AP Chemistry, my other classes were suffering. And as a prospective pre-med student, I was afraid that because I challenged myself I wasnt going to get into the colleges I wanted. That's when I called Quantum Prep for help. As soon as I had the first tutoring session I felt a little more reassured. We went over my quizzes and homework assignments and my tutor quickly picked up what I was missing and how to keep me focused. I felt much more confident walking into class every day. My tutor figured out how I best learn and we started laughing and making jokes as we did stereochemistry. Yes, he figured out within one session that I learn better with music playing in the background and even knew why! The real difference was that he didnt just teach me material, he taught me how to learn for myself. It was a game-changer in how I approached school and learning in general. So while he was teaching me one class, I was using the learning techniques he taught me to improve my grades in all of my classes. He even patiently sat through temper tantrums and low points. So what happened after I called Quantum Prep? The next quiz I took, I got thirty points higher than the last. The first exam; I got a B+. I went on to graduate in a science heavy degree, and got into my first choice for college and graduated with a degree in Neuropsychology. I highly suggest using Quantum Prep for any kind of tutoring. I had such a wonderful experience and have used the lessons I learned from him in so many different aspects of my life, from studying at the university to job experiences. Thank you Quantum Prep!

Tope has helped me edit several writing projects, both personal (cover letters) and professional (long articles). Her advice is always spot-on.
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.
Sarah was a great help to our daughter who was under the gun to finish some essays for a high school application. In short order, Sarah helped her get "unblocked" and just write. Sarah's positive energy and approach helped our daughter to get out of her head. Sarah makes it fun; she gives feedback in a constructive and nurturing manner. I strongly recommend her services for your teen or tween that needs help writing for school assignments or applications.
Kind and caring. Asked questions to get to know you and pulled talents out of you. Resume was outstanding and she helped with interviewing. Creativity in writing is her talent and gift. Felt like family . Would recommend to anyone.
