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.

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!

I was able to achieve what I thought was not possible; a 780 on the GMAT. When I started my journey of struggling to perform well on the GMAT, I was scoring in the upper 500's. I finally bit the bullet and went to a well-known tutoring company that I had heard great things about. Unfortunately, they were unable to help me get my score up more than 20 points. So I went to another tutor that was highly recommended by my undergrad peers. This person went to an Ivy League school and was well liked by those who used his services. And, he did manage to bring my score up to a 640, but this was still well below what I was hoping to achieve. Finally, I did some research, and took a shot with Dr. Fikar. He knew my background and the various tutors I had worked with. He was confident that he could get my score into the mid 700 range, if he had my complete cooperation. I had every reason to doubt him, but, I decided instead to put my complete trust in him and his decades of expertise, and I'm so glad that I took that step of faith. He knew exactly how to sharpen my strengths and bolster my weaknesses, and, although I am by nature a type A personality who likes to have a certain structure and step by step plan in place, Dr. Fikar was much more talented than any spreadsheet of incremental goals that I had received from my previous tutors. I'm not trying to knock those that have a cookie cutter planned approach, I have just realized that in order to achieve a super high score, relying on structured lesson plans will never get you there. It was more of an art form with Dr. Fikar, as he combined his vast knowledge of the GMAT exam and his brilliant mind with unique and creative, out-of-the-box teaching methods and use of materials. He was not limited by a standard approach, but rather tuned into my specific needs on any given day, and helped bring me to a score that was frankly beyond my wildest dreams. Of course I gained admission into my top school choice, and the future is very bright for me now. I am so much more than appreciative, and plan on referring him to all of my friends and family members, when the time comes for them. His services are truly worth every penny that I spent.

My daughter is Tutoring with RKS for HS Honors Bio and the experience has been fantastic, from the inception telephone call to date! Highly professional, efficient and responsive, taking the time to assess my daughter’s individual needs (including acquiring her specific textbook!) and offering the flexibility to meet her busy schedule. Also incredibly kind, compassionate and infinitely patient. Cannot recommend more highly.

Math and science were the two subjects I always found myself having trouble with. With that being said, I was never 100% confident I would be able to pursue my dream of working in the medical field. Shortly after working with Samantha my entire outlook changed! Not only did she greatly improve my test scores, and my understanding of math and science but she made learning them something I really enjoy now. Samantha is accommodating, determined and invested in her students. Together we set goals and thanks to her they were reached- I scored a 1520 on my SAT!

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.

We all know when it comes to the SAT’s there is guaranteed to be a lot of stress. As a sixteen year old high school student going through the SAT process, I can vouch for this. My anxiety began months ago. I admired people who had started their SAT prep a year before, while envying students who were just naturally good test takers, scoring 2000 and up; however, when you don’t fit into either of those categories you start wondering what now? At that point an SAT tutor seemed like a good idea. Enter Danny Ahn. The first time I met Danny, I was unsure what to expect. He understood my confusion and began to structure a plan of action. He soon established the level I was at in English and Math, and then focused in. After a few sessions I began to understand the kind of approach required of me. I have worked with Danny Ahn weekly since around late October or early November, 2013 and our work is ongoing. It is now Feb. 17, 2014. I have found Danny to be a good communicator and listener. He is dedicated, nurturing, focused, and hardworking, going beyond his allotted time with me to help me achieve my goals. He genuinely cares about my mental well being as well as my academic standing. He is readily available on the phone and via text, and has proven to be accommodating with regards to scheduling. I believe that Danny is pushing me in the right direction and I am feeling increasingly more confident with regards to the dreaded upcoming SAT’s. Danny has an excellent understanding of the SAT requirements and I feel that with his continued guidance I can achieve my goals.

Kim has a very easy going nature that allowed our daughter to feel comfortable being tutored by someone she did not know. Kim is well versed in the SAT exam and exam process and she was very flexible regarding a schedule. Our daughter thought Kim did a good job in helping her prepare for the exam.

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!!

Thanks to Christine and ClubZ for a great tutoring experience. Not only did Christine identify my sons needs for SAT tutoring, her execution and follow-up went above and beyond. My son became more confident as he worked with Rich over a period of time and the results were his improved SAT scores. I would highly recommend Christine and ClubZ In-Home Tutoring.

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.

I love my tutoring sessions with Sammy because she is very personable and always makes sure I know the answer before moving on to the next question. She sets guidelines of what I have to accomplish before our next session and keeps me accountable. I always walk away learning new material and know it is completely worth the experience. She makes it fun and knows how to keep my attention. I strongly recommend having her to anyone who needs help with act/sat testing.

Jared is extremely patient in the learning process. I never feel embarrassed for not knowing the right answers, and I am more comfortable asking questions with him than with any other tutor I've had. My grades have improved a lot, and I feel more confident in class. He is also really flexible with his schedule.
