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

Lisa helped me with my essays for graduate school. She helped me polish my essays by acting as a critical eye, rephrasing awkward and wordy sentences, and helped me better express my thoughts and experiences. She is highly qualified, and very good at what she does. Working with Lisa was a wonderful experience, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent writing tutor, or for guidance on getting into college/grad-school.

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 “America’s 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 couldn’t get everything in my notebook and in my head with enough time to move on to the next topic, so I’d 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. I’m one of those people who expect a lot from themselves, and I expected A’s. I felt really bad about myself for the first two quizzes because I wasn’t 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 wasn’t 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 didn’t 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!

Lee was great! She walked me through writing my resume. I had no clue where to start being out of the job search world for 30+ years.

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.

    About

    I'm not a business. However, I'm trying to state a business in tutoring children. For any job I've gotten, that's what I did. I tutor children and help them improve so much in their education. As they got older, they'd come to me if they are in need of any tutoring. They recommend me to people and/or after school services that need people like me who works with kids in improving their skills in not only reading and writing, but also in math.

    About

I am certified in special reading programs such as Seeing Stars, Visualization and Verbalization, and LIPs. I have taught in the resource room the majority of my teaching career so I am very familiar with IEPs, 504s, and other accommodations!
