I enlisted the help of Arbor Tutors to help me with test prep for grad school. Oh man! I am SUPER happy I did that. The tutoring manager walked me through the whole process and set me up with TWO tutors. They also said I could change tutors at any time, but I didn't need to. I was accepted into all of my top choices (Columbia, Penn, Cornell and Duke). I used the application services also (they reviewed my essays).

My son really needed tutoring his senior year of high school and help with the entire college application process. Justus was extremely helpful every step of the way. Justus is intelligent, focused and very reliable. With his help, my son was able to get into the college he wanted to attend. I highly recommend that others contact Justus for his service. You will be absolutely pleased!

Ray has been phenomenal to work with. My daughter worked with him on her application for college and college essays. He is very knowledgeable, easy to talk to, responds right away and has very good (and mature) insight. I have recommended him to my friends and would highly recommend him to anyone that is applying to school.

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!

What a great advisor for college application help. He helped my daughter target colleges that were a good fit for her and write exceptional essays that captured her personality. He also helped her boost her reading sat score when he saw that was the weakest part of her app.

I had Nataliya for SAT tutoring and I was very pleased with the way she taught the material. She made things simple to understand and always made sure that the problems were fully understood before moving on. Nataliya teaches in a manner that is fun and relatable. After just a few SAT practices and tutoring sessions I began to see improvement in my Math and Critical Reading. She even helps with the college application process so that it's less stressful than it already is. I highly recommend this tutor!

I would like to endorse Sheryl Santiago of Coll-Edge Partners. She was indispensable in the college application/acceptance process. She worked with my son in identifying potential colleges, submitting applications, editing his essay, preparing him for college interviews, leveraging scholarships and then helping to determine which was the best pick. Once that determination was made, she was invaluable in obtaining a very attractive scholarship for him. If it wasn't for Sheryl, I don't know what would have happened with the college application process. She had such patience with him - more than I had -- and would always go the extra mile for him. She would alter her schedule to make sure that there was always time for him. Her professionalism, caring and knowledge of the process made the admission to college seamless.

Marshall of College Buddha provides excellent and knowledgable information and advice. He knows his stuff! He can lead students to think both in and out of the box about college choices and can really help them create a list of colleges both parents and students will be satisfied with. I highly recommend College Buddha for any family trying to navigate the confusing college application process.

Jackie helped me with my statement of purpose for my Columbia grad school application. To be completely honest I had used another Thumbtack resource which was a well-meaning person but, didn't help me in crafting the message I was trying to create. This experience turned me off to Thumbtack initially but, I did my due diligence at looking at other tutors, and I am glad I did. Jackie is good at listening to your thoughts/ideas looking at your draft and guiding you towards the message you are ultimately trying to convey in your voice. The result was a statement of purpose that gave a glimpse into who I was a person and why I was a good applicant. I am glad I chose Jackie as today I found out I GOT INTO THE GRAD PROGRAM :). I'd highly recommend her if you are looking for any help with college admission essays :).

Samantha coached my daughter (now a college freshman) with her college essays and provided valuable insights that helped Alyssa craft a more personal and impactful essay. Samantha’s mentoring also instilled confidence and helped Alyssa mentally prepare for the college application process. Samantha is a bright, personable and accomplished young woman, and a terrific essay coach.

I have recently worked with Stephanie during my college application process and she was such a great help to me. She worked with me on my applications and college research and was extremely helpful to me in identifying the college that was my best fit. I would encourage anybody who is applying to college to meet with her because she will help make this process less stressful and a whole lot more enjoyable!

Seamus worked with my daughter last fall during the very stressful college application process. The task of writing the critically important Common Application essay, as well as the supplemental essays required by each college, seemed overwhelming. Over the course of two months Seamus guided, calmed, and helped her to shape numerous essays. He assisted her in developing meaningful ideas and finding her voice, which led to beautiful and honest writing. Seamus spent unpaid hours editing her work, bringing revisions to their subsequent tutoring sessions. He understands exactly what the schools are looking for in the essay submissions and he is able to ensure that the writing meets those expectations. Most importantly, Seamus is a patient, humorous, and kind person who is able to build close relationships with adolescents, allowing them to shine even in the most stressful of circumstances. My daughter will be attending Middlebury College next fall and I believe that the essays were pivotal in her admission.

I hired Jon and his staff for Sat preparation for my daughter who was in 11th grade and they were exceptional. Not only did they raise my daughter's score by a whopping 630 points but helped with the entire college application process landing a 35 thousand dollar scholarship to NYU. I cannot praise them enough.

Our overall experience with Jenna has been nothing short of excellent. From the first time meeting Jenna to getting my daughter into her first choice college, she helped make the college process less stressful than it would have been. She guided us in the right direction, kept us up to date with deadlines, helped complete applications, essays, resumes, and short answers. She constantly followed up via text or email to ensure we were crossing all of our "t's" and dotting all of our "i's". Before helping with anything she always made sure it was perfection. As the college applications wrapped up, Jenna kept going and encouraged my daughter to apply for scholarships. She was very knowledgeable and kept us informed of all scholarships and worked very hard getting ours done. It doesn't matter If you are looking for just a little help or the complete package, Jenna will always do her best to help and go above and beyond the minimum. She is very passionate about helping kids and it's not just a job for her... she truly cares

Michelle has been working with my daughter who is now a junior for 2 years now. She has been unbelievably helpful in finding us suitable colleges to which she should apply as well as explaining to all of us how the college application process works and how it has changed since my husband and I were last involved with it. Not only that, but she has helped my daughter select courses in high school and even improved her attitude toward certain classes when she explained to her how her grades or course of study will appear to colleges. She also steered us toward the best way for our daughter to study for standardized tests. Michelle is easy to talk to and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend the College Spy!

Rob helped me enormously as a writing tutor. From term papers that were due the next day to college transfer application essays, he will guide you through every word for clarity and sense. Unlike other writing tutors that just proofread or merely gave their two cents, Rob stays with you throughout most of the writing process. He quickly identifies your strengths and weaknesses as a writer. In fact, he helped me throughout my years at Norwalk Community College until I transferred to Columbia University in the Fall of 2014. I remember telling my mother that I wouldn't be in the Ivy League if it weren't for this awesome human who would often work with me until the late hours of the night. We would go over syntax structure and even semantics at 2 am. He is among the most generous and amicable individuals whom I have met so far in my life. Rob truly wants to see his clients succeed and treats every assignment with the utmost care and excellence. You can't go wrong with Rob as your personal English Mentor!

My daughter had an excellent experience working with the consultants at MY IVY ALLY. She not only raised her SAT scores by 375 points but also got accepted into her top choice college UPENN this year. We worked with Ritu and her consultants to work out a test strategy, started list of selected colleges and then work our way through the applications. We worked with them via skype and they were available to us via text,email and phone whenever we needed them. Congrats and keep the good work going!

Andre was my tutor for a few months while preparing for college applications. He's very patient and engaging and acts like a real mentor. When I met him I was scoring around 1900 and I ended up scoring a 2110 on my last SAT. Andre is very professional and truly cares about his students. I highly recommend him as a teacher.
