I used Arbor Tutors for math and English tutoring for both the GMAT and the GRE (I didn't know what I wanted to do for grad school). I ended up in the top 10% for the GRE and 720 on the GMAT. My tutor was amazing!!! I was so happy my boyfriend hired Arbor for Spanish tutoring. Super happy!

I needed some help with algebra in 8th grade. My parents had heard of Jeremy from a friend, so we got in touch and he started tutoring me. Jeremy is an excellent tutor. He helped me with my Algebra and all of my other subjects. He has a vast array of knowledge in all subjects ranging from Algebra to History. On top of that, Jeremy taught me what was important to focus on. He helped me prepare for the SAT and showed me how important it was. I went on to do excellent on it. This is what separates him from other tutors. He informs you of things that will be important in the future even when it has nothing to do with what you are learning in class. All the while, Jeremy is friendly and down to earth. It felt like a friend or family member was tutoring me. I truly couldn't give him high enough praise.

I've studied Precalculus and Calculus with Sasha. She has a deep understanding of the subjects and clearly, and patiently, articulates the steps to solving problems. She challenges me to solve the problem on my own, only dropping hints, or showing the solution, when I'm truly stuck. She does not waste time and is always encouraging me to try more problems. Administratively, she is responsible and flexible vis-a-vis the time and place of tutoring sessions. She is a valuable asset and a bargain.

Kamil is an excellent tutor. We found Kamil through this website in our efforts to find a tutor for the SAT preparation. Our focus was on the Math portion of SAT. Kamil is a real professional and has the ability to adapt his teaching to the student. What I mean specifically is that while reviewing concepts and problems he was very flexible in providing multiple explanations to solving problems. I really appreciated the manner in which he was able to connect with my 17 year-old daughter and in my conversations with her she felt confident in his instruction and the value he added. She has found that his tutoring for the SAT has been helpful in her schoolwork as well. I would strongly recommend you reach out to Kamil if you or your child are looking for tutoring that will provide significant help in achieving higher scores. I would absolutely use Kamil again if I were in the market for a tutor for my child.

Ethan helped me raise my score for the SAT in two weeks. Based on my past SATs and practice tests, he developed a work plan that showed me which areas I needed to work on. His organization and practice materials helped me successfully raise my score. He is very kind and really helped relieve stress about the SAT as well as the entire college application process. His rates are also very reasonable when you take into consideration the amount of time he spends formulating a study plan, correcting homework and answering questions by email outside of the tutoring time. I very much recommend Ethan!

Dr Fikar was of invaluable assistance to my daughter and improved her overall score by almost 100 points in only 6 weeks of tutoring. His most signigicant impact was in improving her confidence in approaching difficult math problems. Dr Fikar was so encouraging and gave her so much inside knowledge about the test and the college application process generally. He really made her feel like she had a dedicated, personal professional coach With her throughout the whole fall of senior year. He transformed what was a scary overwhelming process into something of a game that she was inspired to master and win. In addition, I recall her remarking in surprise after only her second tutoring session that it would also help her do better in her AP Calculus course at school, as Dr Fikar was better at explaining math than her own teacher. We are so happy to have found Dr Fikar and plan to enlist his services for our two younger daughters in the coming years. We enthusiastically give him the highest possible rating!

I can not recommend RSK tutoring enough because of the overall quality of the service being provided. An intelligent tutor who is also punctual, respectful and kind is just what I needed to do well on my college entrance exams.

It is so hard to find a quality SAT tutor but Nick is it! He was absolutely fantastic! My son needed help on the reading section and Nick got right to work by targeting his weakest areas. Over 4 or 5 months, my son's confidence and scores skyrocketed. Wow!!

I highly recommend Horace, he is an amazing tutor! Horace helped me improve my score from a 570 to a 710 after just a couple of weeks of tutoring sessions! He is very patient and strategic in his approach. He made sure to understand my testing strengths and weaknesses and tailored his approach to meet my needs. He was also very accessible and invested in my success - he spent several hours sitting through practice exams with me (via virtual sessions) so he could get a real sense of where I needed to improve and spent several hours reviewing both incorrect answers as well as correct answers that I could be answering more quickly or more efficiently. I can honestly say I would not have scored a 700+ score without Horace in my corner.

I’ve taken my SATs a couple of times and although I am not a bad student, I just felt that I could have done better, I knew it inside, but just could not find where it was. I got the Getting Into The Ivys tutoring program and worked with a Chelsea tutor. What I really like about my tutor is that she’s a qualified teacher and is professional and knows how to actually teach concepts properly. I really did not want to take any chances. Going to university is very important to me and my family. Susan my tutor developed a special study plan just for me, which helped me focus on my key weaknesses, without feeling de-motivated, in-fact I was so enthused by her, I actually looked forward to all my sessions. She is a brilliant tutor and I am so very grateful. I was able to increase my composite core by 100. I am very pleased.

Both my son and I had an amazing experience with Katya! She tailored her teaching techniques to make the material more engaging and made my son excited about learning and tracking his improvement after each lesson. Besides providing guidance and helping with practice tests she provided invaluable test taking and memory retention tips. She was very responsive and accommodating, willing to work with our schedules to make sure my son had enough hours of practice before his exam. I highly recommend Katya to anyone looking for SAT tutoring as she is worth every penny.

Theresa was my SAT tutor when I was applying to colleges and was a very impressive instructor. She knew all of the vocabulary words and brought them to life with examples, explaining also the root words and their origin. In terms of math, her knowledge of the concepts on the test is superb. Thanks to her, I was able to get into NYU, my top choice college. Thanks, Theresa!!

Justin was an extremely helpful SAT tutor. He took into account the concerns I had in specific areas of the SAT and designed the lessons so I could improve not just in those sections, but also in the test as a whole. I was able to make the most of each session, and Justin answered all of my questions along the way. He made himself accessible throughout the week to answer messages and emails and I could not be more appreciative of him taking the time to do so. The tips and tricks I learned from him significantly boosted my confidence heading into the test day, and I was very pleased with my results.

In addition to being professional, courteous, and knowledgeable, Mr. O'Brien was very patient with my son, who is not strong in math, especially calculus. With Mr. O'Brien's help, my son actually passed his finals -- and with a very good grade.
