I needed a lot of help with the GMAT. After having taken Manhattan GMAT classes and spending a lot of money and time, I knew I needed to get a private tutor because I was only at a 600. Arbor Tutors provided me with an amazing tutor for the GMAT. He helped me through both verbal and Quant sections and I ended up getting a 740.

We are just beginning private tutoring with Jeremy but our experience so far has been excellent. He was very responsive and informative during our initial communications. Now that we have hired him, he has developed a tailored, step-wise plan to prepare our daughter for ACT. We appreciate that he cares very much about the "whole student."

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 studied with James for my SATs. He has a very unique way of approaching the exam that my prior tutors did not offer. For example, he taught me how to analyze questions based on the way they are written. This was a great skill to have and made me much more confident about going into the test room.

I first contacted Charles after sitting for my GMAT exam and being disappointed with my score. I thought I could do much better and after reading reviews of his tutoring work, I decided he would be best to help me improve my score. I was hoping Charles could show me where I was struggling because I felt I had a good handle on the material before each exam before. I purchased multiple GMAT tools from all the top courses, but apparently, I kept missing something. During my first session with Charles, he immediately knew how to solve each question efficiently, showing me multiple ways to arrive at the same answer. He also taught me mental math skills that saved me precious time in the difficult quant section. Charles was sincere in letting me know the amount of time and effort needed to score above 700. He planned out our sessions accordingly, making sure I mastered each topic before moving on. I appreciated how Charles set up our classes with short drill sets to test the concepts he taught me and if I continued to struggle with them, we would review until my understanding was concrete. After working with Charles three times a week for two months, I saw a 150 point increase in my official GMAT score. I would recommend Charles to anyone who plans on taking the GMAT or any other standardized exam.

My oldest of three children is 22 years old so I have been through my fair share of tutors. Lenore is the best tutor I have encountered. She really cares for her students and will go above and beyond to help them succeed. Needless to say, I would highly recommend Lenore.

One of the best tutors my daughter ever had. She struggled with the sat for a year until we found him. He made lessons around her needs and that helped her do well. She was able to get into the college she wanted.

My daughter has had two ACT sessions with Denny. He is patient and is completely understanding of her needs. Denny is not only well organized, patient and thorough, but he also goes beyond in providing lesson plans; he assigns her home work daily to help her avoid procrastination. Excellent tutor! Professional, well prepared! Extremely smart, but still very patient, positive and encouraging when someone doesn't understand a concept. Highly recommend him for ACT prep!!!!

Sandy is a great tutor. The moment I walked into her working space we felt (my family & I) welcomed by Sandy with a great warm smile. I automatically felt comfortable with her, as she seemed very caring and eager to help. I told her that my son needed a lot of help with reading and she told me not worry and that he will have a great learning experience. She has been very understanding of my son needs. She even reach out to his teacher in school to be on track with his needs. Sandy has also manage to fit his classes at convenient times and is always reachable by phone. I strongly recommend Sandy, she truly care about transforming my son into a confident and fluent reader. I am very happy and can thanks her enough.

I know a lot of people have there friends and family get on here and give them 5 stars and good ratings to help there business. But this time that is not the case. I dont know Akeel from a hole in the wall. In fact I found him on line. I think he lives in New York and I live in Georgia. I say all that to say. Akeel was wonderful,and Very professional and his prices was reasonable, and he was willing to work with you. I hired Akeel to tutor my son who is a sophomore in college in Calculus & Physics and he was very good with my son. And my son really enjoyed working with him. So thank you Akeel for everything. And I would definitely hire you again. Mr. Jackson

AWESOME TUTOR. I had a very small window before taking my TASC exam. His ability to explain things in a matter that makes sense to all was KEY to my success. I scored a overall score of 2980 on my first try. Thank you Michael, I can now say I've finally completed one of my goals and it's all thanks to you.

I met with Nick over the weekend for two hours. At first I wanted to start immediately with Ch. 9 which is what I am currently learning. Nick suggested started with the basics in the beginning of the book to make sure that I had a strong grasp on the core concepts. I have to say...I am SO happy we did that. I feel more comfortable in general and understood concepts almost immediately when he explained them to me. When I asked questions and did not understand a concept from the first explanation then he went into the problem from a different point of view. It was incredibly helpful. I will now be meeting with him multiple times per week until the end of the semester. He is worth every penny and more, couldn't recommend another tutor with the same confidence I would recommend Nick

You know it’s a nightmare out there, looking for the right fit for your kids when you are searching for test prep tutors. I have twins going into the SATs and there are just so many bad teachers out there. I really had to ask Chelsea International a lot of questions when I came across them. I have to say, they blew me away. Not just with their professional nature, but also with their level of expertise, care, and true understanding of what it takes to bring out your child’s fullest potential. I would recommend this tutoring service to anyone. The kids have been working with them now for the last few months, and the difference in their work is amazing. I am really looking forward to seeing their scores after their SAT tests.

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.

Frank is very knowledgable in many subjects. He helped our son with math, science, social studies, and English comprehension. That much knowledge is rare.
