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).

Had a great experience with Dan. He's super flexible in terms of timing and meeting locations, which was great since my schedule was so unpredictable. I told him I wanted to focus on GMAT quant and he walked me through various kinds of questions I should expect to come across, going subject by subject and teaching me helpful tips and tricks along the way. He's incredibly patient and a great teacher. Would definitely recommend for GMAT prep

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 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 met Maura a while ago when I was looking for a teacher to help me improve my conversation skills in English. During our meetings she stimulated the conversation by asking lots of questions about myself, about my country, making me not only to use English but gaining the necessary confidence needed to speak in another language that is not my native one. Another valuable thing that I learned from Maura was a good insight about American culture, people and places in NJ/NY. She also recommended me great books for improving my conversation skills, with useful expressions and topics for practice. Last but not the least, Maura shared from her experience in Toefl preparation exam which is one of my future objectives. I recommend Maura for anyone who is interested in improving English language skills.

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!

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 !

My son is in 10th grade and a bright boy. However, with ACT tests coming up, we wanted him to reach his highest potential. Through the Chelsea International Getting Into The Ivys test prep program, my son has excelled so much so that he is up to go to Stanford. After doing 6 weeks of private tuition with Dr. Michelle, her patience, understanding and encouragement, has driven my son’s greatest results. He scored 34 on his first time taking the ACT and he had no prior ACT testing experience. I am so impressed and so thankful for the professional experience of Chelsea International.

Eve was an outstanding tutor for the ISEE. We hired her with just 6 weeks to go until the test - we had been using a New Haven-based tutoring company that just was not doing the job - in that very short period of time Eve managed to coach our daughter from the middle of the pack (ISEE steniles 4 and 5) toward the top (stiles 6 and 7). Plus she was very flexible about scheduling and was amenable to meeting our daughter in New Haven. We only wish we'd enlisted her sooner! We will definitely seek her assistance for our next set of test preps!

Chris was very detailed and responsive throughout the process. He really turned my resume around. My initial resume was great for a job out of college but he was excellent in turning it around now that I had a few years of banking experience. His advice on highlighting experience on deals was excellent. I'd recommend him without hesitation!

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.

Working with High Marks Test Prep is certainly the best choice one can make while studying for the SAT or PSAT. This course will provide you with precisely what you need to get, well, high marks. No superfluous or confusing information is thrown your way, either. Your questions and points of confusion will be treated carefully and individually, which I found meaningful. The intelligence of the leaders of the program coupled with the amicability of them makes for an excellent classroom environment and experience. I had no regrets leaving High Marks Test Prep.

I contacted Robert after being impressed by his tutoring philosophy. Having only a few months of being tutored by him, the end result was getting to the 98th percentile from the 93 percentile for me. Robert is one of the most patient tutors I have ever had (I have received tutoring since 8th grade), and he explains everything clearly. Follow his logic and do not be afraid to ask any questions about anything. He is an expert on the whole organization of test prep, and he will provide you with the most useful websites for additional test prep. In addition, he is knowledgeable about other subjects as well, which is why I continue to seek his help with my issues in college such as time management and study skills. While working with Robert on the ACT we spoke about other areas of my education as well as my college plans. I came to realize that Robert took a sincere interest in my overall well-being, and consistently made suggestions that invaluable to me on many fronts. Within a few weeks I began to call upon him to help me with my educational plan and college applications. Together, we developed strategies to strengthen my application and Robert helped me to develop my college essays. We went through the trials and tribulations of the college application process, and every step of the way Robert was there to help guide me. Even today, as a freshman at an Ivy League university Robert was there to help me with course selection in addition to many of the challenges an incoming student faces on a college campus. One thing that struck me the most is his ability to understand people, especially how one person responds to different situations. This is important because he is able to understand what is exactly preventing someone from achieving the best of their ability. For example, there was a specific component that I was struggling with my coursework, and he helped me overcome that problem after identifying a specific study limitation that I did not know I had. Over time, he has become a mentor for me. Truly you will be very lucky to have Robert as a tutor because he goes above and beyond for you, and young adults need someone to guide them through difficult times.
