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).

Before I, the student, began working with Jeremy, I was having little to no improvement in consecutive SAT exams. I was having so much trouble trying to figure out the proper way to study, in how I could improve myself and jump into the 1500s which was my goal. However, I was leveling out at about the high 1300s, with a loss on what to do. Kaplan Test Prep did not help much, as they provided often passive learning strategies, and failed to really help the student with effective, real-working strategies. Jeremy Fine knows the ins and the outs of not only the SAT but the ACT as well. His vast knowledge about the exams, combined with his professionalism in them and in colleges globally (college prep as well), made him the perfect tutor that ultimately improved my test score by more than 100 points in the span of 5 weeks! The strategies that he gave me, and the vigor that he gave every motivating speech with, really helped me learn how to tackle every single question. I would recommend Jeremy to anybody who really wants to improve with a passion. Obviously, Jeremy is not a miracle maker, who can automatically increase a score by hundreds without the student doing any work. I worked very hard, and Jeremy takes that very seriously. But coming from a kid who finds standardized testing almost impossible, he really seemed like a magician to me.

Sasha helped me go from the 43rd percentile to the 55th on the GRE quant section. She gave me the tools to be able to solve all the problems on the test. After tutoring with Sasha I was able to feel more confident and relaxed when taking the test, she’s the best!

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.

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.

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.

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 !

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!

Mike helped me prep for the GRE. After years of not being in school and having very little math experience, Mike quickly brought me up to speed and helped me increase my score by 10 percentage points. Mike is amazing at what he does. He will challenge you, explain concepts in ways that will make sense for your specific learning style, and he is very patient and encouraging. There is no doubt I would not be have been able to do as well as I did on the GRE without Mike's help. Mike not only made me a better test taker, but I now feel confident in my math ability which has helped tremendously in graduate school. If you're looking for a tutor who will truly bring you to the next level, Mike is your guy.

Nirmal was very helpful and thorough. I've taken Manhattan GMAT classes and self studies including OG books but I was struggling to get through a certain score that was not happy with. Nirmal really helped me focus on the areas that I needed help on, CR and RC especially, and I improved so much in a month and half. I actually did feel better studying on my own outside of tutor sessions also, thanks to Nirmal. How to approach different question types, how to play with the timing, and etc are all very different for different people and Nirmal really helped me find my own pace and my own tactics to practice. He was very patient and thorough with questions I had, and guided me through the score I finally feel comfortable with. I appreciate all the effort and time Nirmal took to make sure that I understand and do better each time -- even when my mistakes were getting repeated and my scores did not increase drastically. It's also how you take on this time with Nirmal and how much effort you put in. :) If you are on the fence, no need to look further and just go for it! I highly recommend Nirmal. Good luck!

I was not a good test taker...until I started working with Mr. V. He was very thorough and patient with me, even staying to make sure I felt confident in the lesson. He was very flexible, especially as it got closer to test time. I enjoyed my test prep and Mr. V helped me understand things bettet than some of my teachers could. With his help, I was able to get my score up to 1250! I highly recommend Mr. V as a tutor

Thomas was one of the best tutors I have ever had. After trying a few other SAT tutors, I decided to stick with him. Thomas found different ways to help me understand specific topics and worked with me when I needed extra help. He's constantly researching new tutroing methods and implements them into his sessions. With his help, I was able to increase my SAT score by around 200 points. My parents even signed my sister up for tutoring with Thomas because they saw what an amazing tutor he was. After my SAT process was done, Thomas walked me through the college process and helped me with my essays. Because of him, I am going to college with a full scholarship and I will graduate debt free. Thomas is an amazing tutor and an amazing person. He builds connections with his students and their families that extend outside of the academic sphere. I could not be more grateful to Thomas for all that he has done for me and my family.

I think any adult who pays to study a test just goes to show how important the test is to the person who may be feeling uncertain about him/herself or perhaps some aspects of the test. Hence, I believe the greatest value of a tutor is his ability to motivate his students to the next level of learning and to feel confident in tackling the test. And that is exactly what I found in Fred. I was feeling apprehensive after attempting some questions on the mock GRE test. But now, with the support of Fred, I feel very confident and that confidence motivated me to want to do my very best. So from the bottom of my heart.. Thank you Fred for sharing my journey to a self actualisation need.
