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).
Daniel is amazing at GMAT prep. He's hands on, relatable, and flexible. I broke 700 thanks to Daniel, along with hard work of course! Trust me, work with this guy.
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!
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.
My two junior sons have been using Kim as a tutor since the second half of freshman year. Their grades have gone from B’s to B+’s to now straight A’s! Currently they are working on SAT prep. 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. It has been worth every penny to have Kim work with our boys on a weekly basis. She is a great teacher and a great person !
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!
I am in the military, I work full time, and I travel a ton. I started using Target Test Prep after I had already gone through a popular in person 6-week course with another company and could not get above a 610 on the GMAT. A friend urged me to try Target Test Prep. Initially I was reluctant because I am not a big fan of computer based learning. Target Test Prep quickly changed my perspective on what can be gained through a computer based medium, and especially what can be accomplished online with the incredible tutor Target Test Prep has. I started Target Test Prep (TTP) on September 30th 2016 and started working with Jeff (the Tutor from TTP) a few weeks after that. By November 12th 2016 I scored a 650. This is when I started to get serious with TTP. Based on that improvement, Jeff encouraged me to have faith in the platform, follow the curriculum, and work with him. I took his advice and alongside the curriculum, I met with Jeff (on average) once a week until the end of December and scored a 710 on December 29th 2016. I know that if I continued to work with Jeff and use TTP, my score would likely go even higher, but a 710 was good enough for me and met the balance I needed between a good score and time invested. I am very grateful to Jeff and Scott for their excellent curriculum, and I am especially thankful to Jeff for the advising, encouragement, and incredible insight he provided me, and for the excellent instruction on how to solve GMAT problems efficiently and consistently. I would recommend TTP to friends, as I have already. A good friend of mine just bought TTP based on my recommendation and has started working with Jeff. A couple of our mutual friends are considering doing the same after seeing the success I had, as well as the momentum my friend is gaining already. If you are stuck on the GMAT or don't know where to start, this is the program for you! Thank you TTP for helping me put a swift end to this painful GMAT process!
Apex Test Prep was well worth the investment for my GMAT studies. Mike helped me raise my score from 630 to 700 in 6 weeks. I had been trying to breakthrough on the quant section for two years with no success. Mike's deep understanding of how the test is constructed helped me to see it in a way that allowed me to perform significantly better on the test. He is a GMAT wizard, I would highly recommend!
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!
Horace has good intuition on how to motivate a student, which is a rare asset in the test prep world.
John rescued me from the wreckage of my Kaplan experience to help me reach the level of understanding I wished for on the LSAT. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an alternative to the pricy and useless prep companies out there.
My daughter worked with The Ivy Team for SAT Verbal prep. The Ivy Team provided us a great tutor who helped my daughter raise her Verbal score to near perfect! We are very pleased with our experience with The Ivy Team and would highly recommend them to anyone.
Nirmal was very helpful and thorough. I've taken Manhattan GMAT classes and self studies including OG books but I was struggling to get through a certain score that was not happy with. Nirmal really helped me focus on the areas that I needed help on, CR and RC especially, and I improved so much in a month and half. I actually did feel better studying on my own outside of tutor sessions also, thanks to Nirmal. How to approach different question types, how to play with the timing, and etc are all very different for different people and Nirmal really helped me find my own pace and my own tactics to practice. He was very patient and thorough with questions I had, and guided me through the score I finally feel comfortable with. I appreciate all the effort and time Nirmal took to make sure that I understand and do better each time -- even when my mistakes were getting repeated and my scores did not increase drastically. It's also how you take on this time with Nirmal and how much effort you put in. :) If you are on the fence, no need to look further and just go for it! I highly recommend Nirmal. Good luck!
You owe it to yourself to utilizes Lisa Tian's knowledge and expertise when it comes to SAT prep. She tailors her "tricks" to fit your needs and unlike the other prep courses she doesn't waste your time, we all need a life. Before I got directed to Lisa I had taken the Sat 3 times and my scores had always been between 1750 and 1850. I took a prep corse from College board before my first test and studied on my own for the other two. Actually I received a 1550 during my first practice test with college board. Honestly, this was an agonizing, laborious, and somewhat depressing experience. I was directed to Lisa by my relatives. I worked with lisa once or twice a week (before the test) from the comfort of my home on Skype. In between classes I would take a practice test which we would discuss in the next meeting. Im not going to lie and say it was fun, lets be real its SAT prep, but it was effective and efficient. Lisa is a wonderful teacher who creates a comical yet intense atmosphere where you learn quickly. After working with LIsa I scored a 700 in reading, a 680 in math, and a 770 in writing(10 on the essay). Im no great scholar and at the time I was also on the varsity crew team and in my high school's marching band. There are people who excell at taking the SAT, and then there's the rest of us. If you want to trick colleges into thinking you are one of those people, Lisa Tian is the way to go.
I have nothing but nice things to say about Rachel! I was taking back to back online courses for Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 from September to December. Considering I hadn't done Algebra since high school and now being a senior in college I figured it would probably be a good idea to find a tutor to help get me through the courses. I was able to meet with Rachel twice a week for about an hour to an hour and a half. She's very flexible and will work with you to find an area to meet! We would generally meet for our sessions at a Starbucks around the corner from my job. She is very knowledgable about all aspects of Algebra and was great at explaining all of the concepts that were covered in my course. She was also very patient and worked with me at a pace that made me feel very comfortable, and to top it all off she's sooo nice! I definitely recommend her for anyone needing tutoring for Algebra in the NYC area!
I highly recommend Maria as a tutor for your child on test prep or for homework more generally. She has deep content knowledge of math and ELA as well as other disciplines. Maria has tutored my 3 children for over a year. She has tutored them on test prep for 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th grade core state exams and the SHSAT, as well as assisted them with their homework (planning, writing, problem solving, etc.). My children have different academic strengths/weaknesses and learning styles, but Maria has been extremely effective at knowing each of them and building on their strengths. She is patient with each of them and provides positive and specific feedback, which motivates them to care more about learning, deepens their understanding of math content and improves their writing. Through her academic support and joy of teaching, my children's confidence and school success has improved. In addition, Maria is warm, engaging, professional and punctual. My children look forward to seeing her weekly, as do my husband and I.
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.
Charlie recently tutored/taught me GMAT style math to apply to the case portion of management consulting interviews. It had been years since I had performed this type of math because I took the GRE to get into b-school. Charlie is an exceptional teacher who exhibits clear mastery of all math concepts and the patience and teaching style necessary to relay that knowledge. I am happy to report that after 2 tutoring sessions with Charlie I was able to perform case prep at a much higher level and ultimately landed an internship with a prestigious consulting firm this summer. 10/10 would absolutely use Charlie again for a range of math topics.
I had a fantastic tutoring experience with Lauren. I worked with her for three months before re-taking the LSAT this past December, and I'm happy to report that my LSAT score increased by 7pts!! She had a great 'here's why' approach to her teaching methodology, which I found particularly helpful in Logic Games as this was my largest area of weakness. She was very patient and I appreciated that she spent time listening to my thought process for areas to make specific suggestions versus handing out generic advice that seems to be more common among high-profile tutors & prep classes. As a general note, she was also responsive & professional throughout each session, and very accommodating to adjust to my schedule (I work full time and am taking the LSAT to expand my career path).
Han was very thoughtful and detailed oriented
