The best SAT and ACT tutors in the business.
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.
James was the perfect fit for our teenager, for both ACT tutoring and college application/essay coaching. Not only did the ACT scores in question jump 5 points to a high score, but he had a pragmatic and helpful approach to the college process that was very well received. He had a positive outlook and cultivated confidence in our son, who had been a little nervous about the application process. James came to our house and was always polite, professional and on time. So far we've had all positive decisions from colleges and are so grateful!
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.
We have recently hired Dr. Fikar and Harvard Review as SAT/ACT tutors for my son. Thus far they have been prompt and very professional. Dr. Fikar is a great motivator and seems to have invaluable knowledge of the test and how to get great results. We are at the start of our training but we already feel that we have made a great choice. He is fast to reply and easy to work with. And most importantly, my son if fired up to do well.
I can not recommend RSK tutoring enough because of the overall quality of the service being provided. An intelligent tutor who is also punctual, respectful and kind is just what I needed to do well on my college entrance exams.
Our daughter had all the pieces in place for a successful collehe app - except for her sat score. She had 4 months to raise her score by 200 points. We knew she needed a tutor and Nick came highly recommended by her guidance counselor. The results were immediate. We are in his debt.
Blakely Slater is a wonderful tutor and has worked with our daughter beautifully for ACT prep. Blakely has excellent assessment skills and was able to pinpoint areas needed for her to focus on for improvement. Our daughter speaks glowingly of her interactions with Blakely. We highly recommend her. She is terrific!
Samantha is one of the best tutors I have ever worked with!!!! I made instant progress just after 1 session. Being pressed for time i only had about 4 sessions, but those 4 sessions helped boost my s.a.t reading and writing score to new limits. I am so thankful for the value I received and 1000000% reccomend Samantha to any 1 in search of a tutor!!
I highly recommend Horace, he is an amazing tutor! Horace helped me improve my score from a 570 to a 710 after just a couple of weeks of tutoring sessions! He is very patient and strategic in his approach. He made sure to understand my testing strengths and weaknesses and tailored his approach to meet my needs. He was also very accessible and invested in my success - he spent several hours sitting through practice exams with me (via virtual sessions) so he could get a real sense of where I needed to improve and spent several hours reviewing both incorrect answers as well as correct answers that I could be answering more quickly or more efficiently. I can honestly say I would not have scored a 700+ score without Horace in my corner.
Danny is an excellent teacher I highly recommend.! With his help I pass math with the highest score. He explains so clearly that everybody can understand . I even started liking Math and as well took some Math classes for this semester. He is awesome because I didn't have a clue about what is math until I got a great tutoring and pass Math with the highest score.For me that was the biggest achievement I did for 2013 .
Great math tutor, learned a lot from him. Great sense of humor to keep the learning energy high. Definitely would seek help from him again if needed.
Gail is a very kind warm hearted person. Before Gail my son wasn't doing very well and his grades were poor, he always complained about not feeling well to get out of going to school, he would always say I hate school. Since we have hired Gail my son couldn't be happier he smiles going to school he looks forward to his tutor coming every week it's completely private in my own home. My son has caught up on many missing assignment's, his teacher's have notice a big difference in him. I would Highly recommend Above Grade Level In-Home Tutoring with Gail Switsky. She is always available to answer any questions you may have and more importantly Gail will go above and beyond for your child. We are very pleased.
Best ACT Tutoring Service. Look if you want to get a good ACT score, there is no other way to go than with Chelsea International. My teacher was excellent; she was active and showed real passion for what she does. I excelled with her guidance and my test score went up by 10 points. The most important aspect of this whole experience is the change in my attitude to effective studying, and gaining more confidence which is what is needed in a test environment. Thanks Chelsea!
Katya is a great tutor who has ways that help me remember vocabulary words for the SAT test very easily, and she is very clear with math concepts that I may be struggling with, or don't understand entirely. She keeps in touch with me at all times, and I am never afraid to ask her any questions. Ever since she has started tutoring me, I always feel confident that I am in good hands, and that I will ace the SAT!
This tutoring service was phenomenal. My understanding of Math and Reading SAT problems increased exponentially and would recommend this service to anyone who is trying to achieve a near perfect, if not perfect, score.
I hired Jon and his staff for Sat preparation for my daughter who was in 11th grade and they were exceptional. Not only did they raise my daughter's score by a whopping 630 points but helped with the entire college application process landing a 35 thousand dollar scholarship to NYU. I cannot praise them enough.
I hired Robert after reading his tutoring philosophy. My son, a consistent high honor roll student, was struggling with 10th grade algebra 2/ trigonometry honors. After the second semester assessment said he was in danger of failing we knew he wasn't going to catch up on his own. I had no idea how to find a tutor and stumbled on Thumbtack. Robert's breadth of knowledge, not just trig, is quite remarkable. He is a gifted teacher. He quickly assessed my sons deficiencies and set out to bring him up to speed. Over the next several weeks, with weekly sessions, Robert would assign my son work and explain the topics in a way that that he finally started to get it. The next step in their relationship was that Robert convinced my son that if he put in the work he was capable of much more than just getting by. Robert has never tried to "sell" us more sessions, there were weeks where he felt he wasn't needed and we would skip those weeks. The end result was a 96 on the Regents. Quite a turnaround for a student who was failing in January and was hoping to just get a passing grade on the Regents. Won't hesitate to bring him back into our home for any future challenges my son may face.
I’ve taken my SATs a couple of times and although I am not a bad student, I just felt that I could have done better, I knew it inside, but just could not find where it was. I got the Getting Into The Ivys tutoring program and worked with a Chelsea tutor. What I really like about my tutor is that she’s a qualified teacher and is professional and knows how to actually teach concepts properly. I really did not want to take any chances. Going to university is very important to me and my family. Susan my tutor developed a special study plan just for me, which helped me focus on my key weaknesses, without feeling de-motivated, in-fact I was so enthused by her, I actually looked forward to all my sessions. She is a brilliant tutor and I am so very grateful. I was able to increase my composite core by 100. I am very pleased.
Samantha has been an excellent ACT tutor for me. While most tutors simply teach you a standard curriculum and simply reveal answers to wrong questions, she makes sure that what you learn is understood properly and can be practically used, and really goes in depth in going through your mistakes. This ensures that you don't repeat the same mistakes for similar questions in the future.
Frank is very knowledgable in many subjects. He helped our son with math, science, social studies, and English comprehension. That much knowledge is rare.
