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 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.

Sasha was a very punctual and effective tutor! I have not taken a formal math class in six years and she was able to help me develop a plan to re-familiarize myself with the necessary formulas and strategies. She helped me improve my score on my practice tests by 6 points and helped me ultimately achieve my desired score of 150 in the quantitative section.

Sasha is the greatest math tutor I could have asked for. I had no confidence in my GRE math ability before working with Sasha, and a few weeks later, now two days before my test, I know that there's no problem I can't handle. That's all thanks to Sasha.

I worked with Sasha for preparation for the GMAT exam. Sasha was very knowledgeable on the subject matter and helped me review basic math concepts. I would happily recommend Sasha for tutoring.

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.

Was looking for a GRE tutor last minute before my test. Kamil was extremely responsive and communicative over email and text and even did a trial 30 minute tutoring session free of charge so I could see if our teaching/learning styles matched up. He was very intelligent and extremely professional.

I have only the highest praise for Jim DelGenio, in every possible way. We have had a longtime tutor working with my son, but test prep is not her specialty. We were referred to Jim through an acquaintance, and I’m so grateful that we had him in our corner. Simply put, Jim is a fabulous tutor. He very quickly assessed Conor’s working and learning style, and adapted his sessions accordingly. He spent quite some time chatting with us at the beginning of our time together, to understand our goals and work toward them. Our experience with Jim felt the total opposite of a “package”, but rather a customized strategy based on Conor’s strengths/weaknesses and our goals. Jim has a broad range of knowledge of not only the testing process, but also navigating the waters of college applications. He was a wealth of information that informed much of how we proceeded with the various schools Conor was considering. Jim gave “homework” that was apropos to the subject matter they were covering, but was mindful about weeks where Conor’s schoolwork was overwhelming – we all appreciated that! And personally, Jim was a pleasure to work with. Always on time. Always responsive to e-mails and phone calls. And an all around nice guy too! But the best “testimony” I could give is from Conor himself. I asked him if he attributed his great success in his SAT scores to his work with Jim. His reply? “Absolutely.”

We couldn’t be more pleased! My daughter needed 2 more points on her ACT to get into the honors college. I googled ACT instructors and received many emails. James’s email was very professional and he responded back very quickly. We live in Iowa and James lives in New York. All classes with my daughter were done online using FaceTime. James never billed without asking first. If you’re looking for an ACT/SAT instructor, I would highly recommend James. We found out this morning, 12/19/2017, when test results were posted, that my daughter actually went up 3 points and made it into honors college. This saved us literally thousands of dollars. Thank you, Janelle

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!

Aron is an excellent and patient math tutor. He is very knowledgeable and was a tremendous asset to my successes with the SAT test! My SAT score increased significantly once I had 8 sessions with him. Aron did a wonderful job clearly explaining the areas I struggled with and was even able to come up with his own example problems on the spot. He made me feel comfortable and provided confidence which I took into the SAT. He is also very accommodating and flexible with scheduling. I cannot say enough good things about him.

Dr Fikar was of invaluable assistance to my daughter and improved her overall score by almost 100 points in only 6 weeks of tutoring. His most signigicant impact was in improving her confidence in approaching difficult math problems. Dr Fikar was so encouraging and gave her so much inside knowledge about the test and the college application process generally. He really made her feel like she had a dedicated, personal professional coach With her throughout the whole fall of senior year. He transformed what was a scary overwhelming process into something of a game that she was inspired to master and win. In addition, I recall her remarking in surprise after only her second tutoring session that it would also help her do better in her AP Calculus course at school, as Dr Fikar was better at explaining math than her own teacher. We are so happy to have found Dr Fikar and plan to enlist his services for our two younger daughters in the coming years. We enthusiastically give him the highest possible rating!

I could not say enough good things about Dr. Fikar. He is the reason, for the first time in my entire life, I did well on a standardized test. I had used other large test prep companies to prep for the GMAT and none of them could help me beat a 650 until. Dr. Fikar's knowledge of the test and study materials are unparalleled. I could not highly recommend someone more. Thank you for everything Dr. Fikar!

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.

Charles is an excellent tutor! He was professional, helpful, and radically improved my math score for the GRE. If I had to take the test again, I would absolutely hire Charles again (but thankfully, I don't, because he helped me so much the first time around!). If you're looking for a tutor to help you achieve real results, you've found him.

I'm here to write a rave review about Ethan. I've tutored before,myself, and this was my first time needing a tutor since high school, but Ethan was great. It's been such a long time since I've needed to study for a standardized exam, but Ethan was very knowledgeable, encouraging, and very approachable! I was really impressed by how prepared he was. The materials he had were so key in helping me reach the scores I needed for grad school applications. He was able to provide me different strategies to approach different types of questions, and he never tired of my "stupid" questions. haha. Please consider Ethan to be your tutor, too. It's very difficult to find someone who can break difficult-seeming ideas into more manageable steps!

Ethan helped me raise my score for the SAT in two weeks. Based on my past SATs and practice tests, he developed a work plan that showed me which areas I needed to work on. His organization and practice materials helped me successfully raise my score. He is very kind and really helped relieve stress about the SAT as well as the entire college application process. His rates are also very reasonable when you take into consideration the amount of time he spends formulating a study plan, correcting homework and answering questions by email outside of the tutoring time. I very much recommend Ethan!

I would like to highly recommend Dr. Howard Siegerman as a tutor of both math and chemistry. He tutored by son Tom when he was taking a difficult series of math courses in middle school and high school. With his encouragement and patience he was able to rebuild Tom's confidence. With this renewed confidence and additional practice, Tom's grades improved dramatically. Dr. Siegerman also mentored Tom in chemistry, providing real life experience to theoretical questions. Tom in now at New York University pursuing a degree in biochemistry.

Student Information: • Current senior in high school. • Received tutoring in Calculus (currently taking AP Calculus BC). Tutor was very thorough. He made sure I had a strong pre-calc/calc foundation established before he moved onto more difficult topics. He continually reinforced previous lessons and connected them to new lessons. He not only taught lessons but also gave problem-solving strategies for problems in past AP tests. In my opinion, Mr. Siegerman is a very experienced and intelligent tutor.

Math and science were the two subjects I always found myself having trouble with. With that being said, I was never 100% confident I would be able to pursue my dream of working in the medical field. Shortly after working with Samantha my entire outlook changed! Not only did she greatly improve my test scores, and my understanding of math and science but she made learning them something I really enjoy now. Samantha is accommodating, determined and invested in her students. Together we set goals and thanks to her they were reached- I scored a 1520 on my SAT!

My daughter always seemed to have panic attacks leading up to tests. I was desperate to find a way for her to be comfortable especially as SATs were coming up. All I can say is after a few weeks with the tutors and life coaches at Chelsea International Education, my daughter’s confidence level went up a lot. She was not only prepared to take her SATs but her core academic skills have improved tremendously, which has helped her with her AP exams. The fact that all of the Chelsea tutors are fully qualified teachers, I think makes a major difference and really sets them apart. It really is a quality service and I am very happy to recommend them to anyone.

My son is in 10th grade and a bright boy. However, with ACT tests coming up, we wanted him to reach his highest potential.

After doing 6 weeks of private tuition with Dr. Michelle, her patience, understanding and encouragement, has driven my son’s greatest results.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Ever since she has started tutoring me, I always feel confident that I am in good hands, and that I will ace the SAT!

You know it’s a nightmare out there, looking for the right fit for your kids when you are searching for test prep tutors.
