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).

Math Allergy + World’s Best Tutor - Time = 760 score + Top 5 MBA acceptance! Dan is the reason I’m heading to my dream school without a doubt. I can’t imagine scoring over 750 without his help. I wasted an entire year spinning my wheels with 3 different test prep companies and feeling like a lost cause before finding Dan- and not to mention consistently scoring under 600 despite embarrassing amounts of effort. Less than 6 months of working with Dan boosted my raw quant score by a full 10 points and it kept on climbing. Dan is patient, encouraging and a complete genius. Most importantly, Dan gave me both the confidence and battle tested approaches to hit a score that I would have laughed off a few months earlier. It still boggles my mind that a 200 point increase is even possible, but Dan made it happen. I don't normally write online reviews, but I can't stop sharing the secret weapon to making your dream school acceptances roll in aka working with Dan and never looking back. You’re welcome :)

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.

I have only the highest praise for Jim DelGenio, in every possible way. We have had a longtime tutor working with my son, but test prep is not her specialty. We were referred to Jim through an acquaintance, and I’m so grateful that we had him in our corner. Simply put, Jim is a fabulous tutor. He very quickly assessed Conor’s working and learning style, and adapted his sessions accordingly. He spent quite some time chatting with us at the beginning of our time together, to understand our goals and work toward them. Our experience with Jim felt the total opposite of a “package”, but rather a customized strategy based on Conor’s strengths/weaknesses and our goals. Jim has a broad range of knowledge of not only the testing process, but also navigating the waters of college applications. He was a wealth of information that informed much of how we proceeded with the various schools Conor was considering. Jim gave “homework” that was apropos to the subject matter they were covering, but was mindful about weeks where Conor’s schoolwork was overwhelming – we all appreciated that! And personally, Jim was a pleasure to work with. Always on time. Always responsive to e-mails and phone calls. And an all around nice guy too! But the best “testimony” I could give is from Conor himself. I asked him if he attributed his great success in his SAT scores to his work with Jim. His reply? “Absolutely.”

Prior to hiring Jon as a tutor, I was struggling with LSAT prep despite taking a TestMasters course and 7sage. My score was not improving regardless of the hours I put in. That's when Jon came along and everything changed. After just one tutoring session, my sore went up 5 points! It felt absolutely incredible. Jon helped me tremendously with my weak points and gave great advise and tricks on how to tackle certain types of problems. I wish I had found out about Odyssey Test Prep sooner, wouldn't have wasted my time/money on TestMasters. If you are still debating between TestMasters and Odyssey Test Prep, go with Jon at Odyssey - you will not regret it!! Not only is he extremely knowledgable, he is always available for his students. Also, his Logic Games course is amazing. I have improved tremendously in the LG section and though I hate to admit this, I actually enjoy doing Logic Games now. Hiring Jon was the best decision I've made!

SW 410 (stats) is the hardest class. I have a learning disabiity that makes a class like this really hard to understand. R & L Consultants made this process easier. He explained things until I understood. I had a big project that needed you to explain a hyposesis and then you run a test. So hard to do, but can I say R&L consultants made this project almost enjoyable. He is truely invested and cares about you and your success. I would hire this pro again in a heart beat!

Had an emergency math issue and was going to hire him for a few days to help me pass my Clep test. Doesn’t text to confirm, even though he saw my text. Doesn’t respond to phone calls or text messages, until 20 mins after he was supposed to show up to our appointment. He texts saying that he had an issue adding the appointment to the calendar. But he knew about the appointment because he saw my confirmation message earlier today. Now I’m standing in the rain scrambling to find another tutor to help with my Clep that’s coming up in a few days because i can’t trust this won’t happen again from him.

Daniel is an incredible job preparing my daughter for the SAT. She managed an over 300 point jump in her practice tests. Most importantly, Daniel make my daughter more confident in her abilities and comfortable with the overall process. A good tutor inspires a student not only to work hard, but also to expect better things from themselves and Daniel certainly excelled at that.

LSAT Tutoring with John

Before I first started working with John, everything I knew about the LSAT had come from taking one practice test several months earlier. I had done absolutely no preparation for this practice test, and I think I had scored somewhere around the mid-150s. John quickly familiarized me with basics of the test, and soon I was scoring in the low to mid 160s-range. My best section quickly became the Logic Games, thanks to John’s efficient teaching of it. However, what stumped me over and over again was dealing with uncertainty in the Logical Reasoning and Reading Comprehension sections, with picking the best answer out of an entire set of mediocre answers and with questions that didn’t seem to fit into neat patterns that the majority of LSAT questions and answers fell into.   Luckily, I had found a fantastic tutor to help me. John was always extremely patient and meticulous. He made sure to give me thorough explanations for questions that I had difficulty fully comprehending to make sure I had a complete understanding of why the right answer was correct. He did not give up even when I would say, “Uh…ok” to his initial explanation when he heard the hesitation in my voice. John gave me weekly assignments specifically tailored to my progress. He worked very hard to mold my brain to be the best LSAT-conquering brain that it could be. He even requested that I email him my Word document of LSAT notes every time I updated it. At the same time, he was not at all a grim and harsh tutor, and freely gave me encouragement whenever I expressed my fears that I was just not smart enough to score as high as I wanted to on the LSAT. John was always flexible and understanding about my schedule–I first studied for the LSATs while juggling a summer internship and conducting interviews for a senior thesis, then again during my winter break and then during the first few weeks of my senior spring semester. John never demanded that I work around his schedule. He even travelled to China during the summer, but made sure to make time for our lessons that took place effectively over video chat.     Alas, I improved but did not score as well as I wanted to the first time I took the LSAT. The second time around, along with my usual weekly assignments and lessons, John instructed me to start making flashcards of all my wrong answers from practice exams and to use the Leitner flash card review technique to study my cards. (This technique involves: (i) separating flash cards into 4 boxes, with each card getting promoted to the next box when the correct answer is given or moving the card back to Box 1 when an incorrect answer is given, and (ii) using a schedule of which boxes should be studied on which day of the week.) During lessons, John and I would fill out new flash cards. John made sure that I not only wrote down why the right answer was right and my wrong answer was wrong, but also precisely what to look out for with these questions and answers, so that I would not miss these traits or clues the next time I encountered them in other questions. I am almost certain this technique was one of the main reasons I scored a 171 the second time I took the LSAT. Before I used the Leitner system, I did not review my old answers nearly as much as I should have, certainly not every day. With the Leitner system, I was forced to constantly keep reviewing concepts that I had missed previously so that I would not do so again, which helped me stay on top of my personal challenges. Toward the last couple of weeks before the second time that I would take the LSAT, I consistently scored 170 or more on practice exams.   It was also helpful that John and I got along very well on a personal level. He was considerate and polite but also witty and funny–I was very lucky that our senses of humor meshed so well. ‎It was a huge bonus that even our tastes in sci-fi and fantasy were highly compatible as well. I owe my 171 score to John. He is a patient, precise, professional, perceptive, and entertaining tutor who knows the LSAT inside and out and wants to make sure that all his students do as well. Anyone hoping to defeat the LSATs would be lucky to have him as their 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 first reached out to Spencer to prep me for a job interview. This involved updating my cover letter and preparing/rehearsing my interview questions and answers. With Spencer’s tutoring, I felt much more confident and ready for the interview. While going through the final stages of the interview process, the hiring company tasked me to prepare a custom presentation. Spencer’s thoughtful questions, creativity and attentiveness helped me nail this final task and I landed the job! I still work with Spencer on any speeches and business presentations I have to give. He takes the time to understand my point of view on the subject in order to help craft the right material and tone. Throughout each project, Spencer is always helping me improve my articulation and vocabulary. This has made a tremendous difference in both my professional and personal life! Overall, Spencer is an excellent teacher and public speaker.

I am very satisfied with Niquesha's tutoring services. It wasn't easy finding a tutor in Prospect Heights but I got lucky with this one. She is very enthusiastic and I love that she is so involved and sends me several progress updates. She was very speedy to identify what my son was struggling with after a few assessments and diligently explains the content to him. A week ago my son came home with his first 90 on a math test, ever. Thank you so much. I highly recommend her!

Michelle has worked with my now 11 year old daughter, for 5 years. She suffers from severe dyslexia & adhd. I can honestly say she would never be at grade level without Michelle. She has single handedly kept her up to speed with her incredible knowledge & ability to teach those who have trouble in a school environment. My daughter is now enrolled in a private prep school & is excelling. I'll forever continue to use Michelle every summer until she graduates. She is beyond gifted, with endless experience & expertise in all forms of educational delays or simply a tutor to further excel with any child that doesn't fit "the mold". I absolutely couldn't recommend her more, as much as I'd like to keep her to myself, I know she can help so many students & they love her dearly. My daughter, who has never been a huge fan of "school" never wants to leave Michelle! I can attest from years of sweat & tears of struggle, she has elliviated most of her worry.

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.
