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).

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!

Crimson Scholars absolutely saved me last week while I was cramming for a Calc midterm I was wholly unprepared for. Frank, a Harvard graduate, is a young, whip smart tutor who spent nearly 15 online hours with me within less than 3 days. He was patient with my neurosis, encouraging, and fun. Most importantly, Frank is an incredible teacher. Thank you, Huen and Frank for accommodating me! I will be back in late Nov/Dec for my final... but with a bit more time to prep!

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.

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.

Julie was a marvelous tutor for our daughter. We worked with her for SHSAT prep and advanced math. Julie was professional, smart, and funny. She did a great job engaging our daughter in sometimes very dry material. Julie was also very good at listening and adapting the sessions to address areas where more work was needed. We’d recommend her in a heartbeat!

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!!!!

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.

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.

Justin has been tutoring my son for the ACT's. His help has been invaluable. Not only has he mentored him in the exam process, but he has helped him with application essays for summer college programs which proved to be very successful. My son was excepted into both the Harvard Summer College as well as the Steven Institute Summer Pre-College program. Justin was extremely helpful in the process.

Dana does it ALL. Any kind of student, at any level of ability or skill or motivation - she is great at quickly building a rapport with the student and establishing trust. From there she is able to deftly identify each student's strengths and needs, target her instruction in a highly personalized, dynamic way. Her instruction is extremely effective; she has multiple creative ways to explain concepts, and she's very good at pinpointing areas of confusion. Not only can she teach any kid, she can teach any level of high school math. She's also provides outstanding college test prep services. My son brought his SAT math score up 100 points after 5 one-hour sessions with Dana. Working with her is easy and pleasant; she's flexible, accommodating, friendly, professional and very understanding about the busy and unpredictable schedules of high school kids. She's also very caring; many times she has moved her schedule around to squeeze in an extra hour with my kid the night before an exam, or when he's just feeling overwhelmed. She's amazing, well worth every penny. In fact, I think she's a great bargain.

In the course of 4 hours, Samantha transformed my ACT preparation rut into victory! I was unable to progress in my performance on the ACT science section, and yet I could not identify what was wrong with my method of attack. Samantha listened intently and graciously to my thought processes as I verbally solved a few practice problems. She pin-pointed where my strategy could change, and asked me insightful questions that guided my mind to a more orderly strategy for each different question type. My science score jumped 5 points, remained consistent on each practice test, and my final overall ACT score exceeded my goal! Because Samantha, with her confidently kind and encouraging demeanor, effectively and efficiently honed my skills, I received the scholarship that enabled me to afford college! Thank you Samantha!
