I took GMAT tuition from Arbor Tutors. My tutor was excellent! He helped me to gain a solid grasp of the fundamental concepts to ace my test. The tuition was customized to focus on areas I needed help on. I will turn to Arbor Tutors the next time I need a tutor. I recommend them.
I tried multiple tutors prior to meeting with Dan and must say that he is the best one around, hands down! He will show you shortcuts for all kinds of problems and help you understand the methodology for solving the hardest ones. He is always prepared and tries to accommodate your schedule. I was desperate with my Q34 after the first GMAT attempt and he helped me raise it to Q48. Thanks, Dan!
I needed some help with algebra in 8th grade. My parents had heard of Jeremy from a friend, so we got in touch and he started tutoring me. Jeremy is an excellent tutor. He helped me with my Algebra and all of my other subjects. He has a vast array of knowledge in all subjects ranging from Algebra to History. On top of that, Jeremy taught me what was important to focus on. He helped me prepare for the SAT and showed me how important it was. I went on to do excellent on it. This is what separates him from other tutors. He informs you of things that will be important in the future even when it has nothing to do with what you are learning in class. All the while, Jeremy is friendly and down to earth. It felt like a friend or family member was tutoring me. I truly couldn't give him high enough praise.
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.
Tutoring was very professional and went the extra mile- providing homework and tailored study techniques. I would absolutely recommend and hire again.
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.
Are you looking for a math tutor who is well prepared for each lesson, who is a math genius, who is clearly passionate about teaching and who really cares whether his students are making progress? Well, you have found him in Aron G. from Spring Valley, NY! I was having difficulty with trigonometry. The support I was receiving in my private school was very limited, but I still wanted to take the Regent. I had moved several times during my elementary schooling and then skipped a grade, which didn't exactly help my math background. I had worked with several private tutors on trigonometry for months to prepare for the Regent. No improvement. In fact, I was feeling less and less confident that I would be able to master the subject. It seemed like I wasn't fitting into the cookie cutter. Then I started to work with Mr. G. At our first class, I couldn't believe how well prepared he was. He had written his own outline of the topic for our lesson. He provided a broad overview of the topic at hand, which made sense to me. He showed me some examples. Then he had me doing problems on my own--and I could! Working with Mr. G. for several weeks really made me feel like I would be able to pass the Regent. Mr. G. built on my strengths. But he also quickly identified my weaknesses. We zeroed in on gaps that I had in my mathematics background. It turns out that though I was missing some basics, I actually have somewhat of a facility for trigonometry. Once Mr. G. helped me to close the gaps and acquire the missing basics, I was able to do the trigonometry. Now I not only feel good about trigonometry, but I feel good about math in general. I am so happy and grateful to have found such a great tutor and great teacher in Aron G. from Spring Valley, NY.
I was able to achieve what I thought was not possible; a 780 on the GMAT. When I started my journey of struggling to perform well on the GMAT, I was scoring in the upper 500's. I finally bit the bullet and went to a well-known tutoring company that I had heard great things about. Unfortunately, they were unable to help me get my score up more than 20 points. So I went to another tutor that was highly recommended by my undergrad peers. This person went to an Ivy League school and was well liked by those who used his services. And, he did manage to bring my score up to a 640, but this was still well below what I was hoping to achieve. Finally, I did some research, and took a shot with Dr. Fikar. He knew my background and the various tutors I had worked with. He was confident that he could get my score into the mid 700 range, if he had my complete cooperation. I had every reason to doubt him, but, I decided instead to put my complete trust in him and his decades of expertise, and I'm so glad that I took that step of faith. He knew exactly how to sharpen my strengths and bolster my weaknesses, and, although I am by nature a type A personality who likes to have a certain structure and step by step plan in place, Dr. Fikar was much more talented than any spreadsheet of incremental goals that I had received from my previous tutors. I'm not trying to knock those that have a cookie cutter planned approach, I have just realized that in order to achieve a super high score, relying on structured lesson plans will never get you there. It was more of an art form with Dr. Fikar, as he combined his vast knowledge of the GMAT exam and his brilliant mind with unique and creative, out-of-the-box teaching methods and use of materials. He was not limited by a standard approach, but rather tuned into my specific needs on any given day, and helped bring me to a score that was frankly beyond my wildest dreams. Of course I gained admission into my top school choice, and the future is very bright for me now. I am so much more than appreciative, and plan on referring him to all of my friends and family members, when the time comes for them. His services are truly worth every penny that I spent.
Ethan is a great tutor for my 17 year old daughtet
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.
Odyssey Test Prep was by far the best decision I made for getting ready for the LSAT. The tutors this company has on staff are top notch and know what their doing. I came to Odyssey with a 150 LSAT score and my score increased 20 points to a 170 within the time that I worked with them which is something that I wouldn't have been able to do on my own. So if you're looking to increase you're LSAT score go with Odyssey it will be the best move you can make.
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.
Daniel's tutoring experience and knowledge of the material was key to our daughters acceptance to Bergen County Technical HS. Daniel always arrived on time for each lesson and always came prepared. We were also happy that he gave homework assignments to work on for the next lesson. Our overall experience was great. We will definitely contact Daniel again.
Ivy tutors are the best!!!
Gail is awesome, and the tutors are excellent.
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!
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.
Dan is an absolutely fantastic tutor. He's a super knowledgeable, smart, easy-to-work-with tutor who really helped my daughter improve substantially on the ACT. I've used other tutors in the past for academic support for her and she always complained about having to go to lessons, but never so with Dan - she actually looked forward to seeing him each week. I was very impressed and would highly recommend him to anyone! Major thumbs up, both for his skills with students and his ability to achieve top scores on high-stakes tests like the ACT.
Thanks to Christine and ClubZ for a great tutoring experience. Not only did Christine identify my sons needs for SAT tutoring, her execution and follow-up went above and beyond. My son became more confident as he worked with Rich over a period of time and the results were his improved SAT scores. I would highly recommend Christine and ClubZ In-Home Tutoring.
Luka worked with my son throughout his freshman year at NYU. We have worked with tutors previously and Luka has by far, been the most inspiring and dependable teacher/tutor that we have had the fortune of working with. My son, who is in the Pre Med/Health undergrad program will continue to work with Luka throughout his academic career. Our son's GPA went from a GPA of 3.0 to 3.8.~ we highly recommend Luka.
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.
