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).
I've taken all types of GMAT prep courses (online, in-person, etc.) and Dan prepared me better than any of them. Dan was a fantastic tutor and helps you think in different ways. He taught me strategies and approaches that allowed me to beat my goal score. He was incredibly helpful and I would recommend him to anyone trying to improve their GMAT score.
Simply put, Jeremy delivered. He worked with my son every week thru summer to prep for Sept ACT. Before prep he was testing avg on mocks. After prep he consistently scored mid-30's across sections. Jeremy also gave advice on schools to consider and ways to improve his common app. He was professional, fun, relatable, engaging, and a highly effective instructor. We highly recommend Jeremy to anyone seeking help with improving ACT scores. Happy to report my son was accepted early to Cornell University class of 2022!
I started working with Kamil late in my college process. Many tutors doubted that I had enough time to prep and were only willing to work with me as a sort of "second hand client". With only two months left before my last possibly act during my senior year, Kamil and I worked day and night to achieve my goal score. Often meeting before and running after midnight only to see each other at six the next day, Kamil and I turned my test scores around to help me get into Cornell University. Kamil is kind, conscientious and committed. For him, standardized testing tutoring is a calling. He is his own brand.
My daughter had the privilege of working with James on her ACT prep these past two months. My daughter who is very bright but struggles with focus and lack of confidence clicked nicely with James. He was extremely timely and easy to schedule with. Our daughter found his sessions to be very engaging and helpful not only with her ACT prep, but also with her regular studies. My daughter set an ACT goal for herself and was extremely surprised and thrilled that she scored beyond her goal. We highly recommend James as an ACT prep tutor!
I went to The Harvard Review for my GMAT Prep. All of my tutoring was done via Skype, as I live on the other side of the country. I took it twice during the time I received tutoring. My first score was with just a few weeks of prep, and I got a 670. I continued to work with Dr. Fikar, and ultimately achieved a score of 760! I would highly recommend him to anybody who wants to get a top score on the GMAT.
Aron is very knowledgeable about ACT/SAT math prep. He explained everything very well, and was also very easy to work with in setting up the appointment.
Ray is a great tutor and a great person. He was extremely patient with my 9 year old son when we asked him to help with some last minute ISEE prep. My son actually looked forward to his sessions. Ray helped keep him on track when he started to wander. Ray is responsive, punctual, & cares about his students. I would hire him again in a minute.
Ethan was a key factor in helping me achieve a 35 on the ACT. His guidance is impeccable, acting in the best interest of the student; when I struggled to improve my SAT score, he made the decisive choice to change our preparation path to toward the ACT. The change was essential to achieving the high score that I wanted. Although I was never a humanities-oriented person, he also helped to improve my human skills which in turn boosted my scores. My reading and English scores skyrocketed after he helped me these more abstract sections with logic and reasoning. I recommend Ethan to anyone who is looking to improve their scores; his knowledge and poise are unmatched.
My two junior sons have been using Kim as a tutor since the second half of freshman year. Their grades have gone from B’s to B+’s to now straight A’s! Currently they are working on SAT prep. Kim is extremely organized and adapts her teaching styles to accomadate both boys needs. The boys took their SAT’s for the first time this past Saturday and felt as though they were well prepared and are confident that their scores will be a reflection of time spent working with Kim. It has been worth every penny to have Kim work with our boys on a weekly basis. She is a great teacher and a great person !
Justin has been tutoring my son for the ACT's. His help has been invaluable. Not only has he mentored him in the exam process, but he has helped him with application essays for summer college programs which proved to be very successful. My son was excepted into both the Harvard Summer College as well as the Steven Institute Summer Pre-College program. Justin was extremely helpful in the process.
I am in the military, I work full time, and I travel a ton. I started using Target Test Prep after I had already gone through a popular in person 6-week course with another company and could not get above a 610 on the GMAT. A friend urged me to try Target Test Prep. Initially I was reluctant because I am not a big fan of computer based learning. Target Test Prep quickly changed my perspective on what can be gained through a computer based medium, and especially what can be accomplished online with the incredible tutor Target Test Prep has. I started Target Test Prep (TTP) on September 30th 2016 and started working with Jeff (the Tutor from TTP) a few weeks after that. By November 12th 2016 I scored a 650. This is when I started to get serious with TTP. Based on that improvement, Jeff encouraged me to have faith in the platform, follow the curriculum, and work with him. I took his advice and alongside the curriculum, I met with Jeff (on average) once a week until the end of December and scored a 710 on December 29th 2016. I know that if I continued to work with Jeff and use TTP, my score would likely go even higher, but a 710 was good enough for me and met the balance I needed between a good score and time invested. I am very grateful to Jeff and Scott for their excellent curriculum, and I am especially thankful to Jeff for the advising, encouragement, and incredible insight he provided me, and for the excellent instruction on how to solve GMAT problems efficiently and consistently. I would recommend TTP to friends, as I have already. A good friend of mine just bought TTP based on my recommendation and has started working with Jeff. A couple of our mutual friends are considering doing the same after seeing the success I had, as well as the momentum my friend is gaining already. If you are stuck on the GMAT or don't know where to start, this is the program for you! Thank you TTP for helping me put a swift end to this painful GMAT process!
Apex Test Prep was well worth the investment for my GMAT studies. Mike helped me raise my score from 630 to 700 in 6 weeks. I had been trying to breakthrough on the quant section for two years with no success. Mike's deep understanding of how the test is constructed helped me to see it in a way that allowed me to perform significantly better on the test. He is a GMAT wizard, I would highly recommend!
Horace has good intuition on how to motivate a student, which is a rare asset in the test prep world.
John rescued me from the wreckage of my Kaplan experience to help me reach the level of understanding I wished for on the LSAT. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an alternative to the pricy and useless prep companies out there.
In the course of 4 hours, Samantha transformed my ACT preparation rut into victory! I was unable to progress in my performance on the ACT science section, and yet I could not identify what was wrong with my method of attack. Samantha listened intently and graciously to my thought processes as I verbally solved a few practice problems. She pin-pointed where my strategy could change, and asked me insightful questions that guided my mind to a more orderly strategy for each different question type. My science score jumped 5 points, remained consistent on each practice test, and my final overall ACT score exceeded my goal! Because Samantha, with her confidently kind and encouraging demeanor, effectively and efficiently honed my skills, I received the scholarship that enabled me to afford college! Thank you Samantha!
we hired Hallie to tutor our hs junior son for the april ACT. she was pleasant, courteous and effective. he scored 33 and we are very very happy with the outcome.
My daughter worked with The Ivy Team for SAT Verbal prep. The Ivy Team provided us a great tutor who helped my daughter raise her Verbal score to near perfect! We are very pleased with our experience with The Ivy Team and would highly recommend them to anyone.
Dan was incredibly helpful with SAT prep this spring.
I had a fantastic experience with Thomas as my tutor! He helped me raise my SAT score over 300 points from a 1230 to a 1540. My ACT also went from a 32 to a 36. I can be a bit lazy sometimes but working with Thomas inspired me to do better. He kept me accountable while being one of my biggest supporters. I feel like through out our time together I learned so many things beyond just the SAT that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. After all, I couldn't have gotten into Harvard with out Thomas. I would recommend him to anyone!
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.
