My 11th grader went from a 28 (90th percentile) to a 31 (97th percentile) after meeting with Adam, and a few Skype sessions with his assigned Science tutor. While I wasn't initially confident that my daughter wold respond well to the online instruction, her science score improved dramatically, and she would also recommend this tutoring mode to her friends. In fact, she said she should hear them in her head while sitting for the test the second time. Best news is that she probably won't need to take the ACT as a Senior. Thank you, Your Ticket to College team!
We used Warp Drive Tutors with all three of my kids, at various times and for various subjects. Long story short, they are absolutely terrific. They are patient and friendly, understand the material thoroughly, and became true friends and allies for my kids. My kids are all smart kids, though they all have slight learning disabilities (slow processing speeds and mild executive dysfunction), with tutoring used to expand and secure the depth of the knowledge they obtained in class. My twins Mark and Mindy, now almost 23, used them WDT the most. They both attended a very rigorous private high school in NYC and they both were very grateful for the help they received with their sciences classes and math classes, as well as the SAT science subject tests. They did very well, As in their classes and near perfect SAT scores. The tutors from Warp Drive Tutors gave them the gift of the opportunity to be genuinely themselves and deal with all their confusions, doubts, and questions, especially dumb questions, in a truly safe place, where they would not be judged or graded, and could take all the time they needed to learn the material thoroughly.
Working with Jeff was an incredible experience for two reasons. First, we'd worked with another tutor prior to Jeff, and the difference was plain as day. Jeff was prepared, kept track of test scores and was able to show week by week the progress being made. Aside from that, he didn't only do problems in the SAT book, but he made a list of everything my daughter needed to work on, and they worked on different worksheets together so that she could brush up on those skills. My daughter absolutely loved working with Jeff, and was ecstatic when she saw that her score had raised from an 1860 to a 2150 after working with him. Thank you so much Jeff and best of luck and success!
Above Grade Level In-Home Tutoring helped my daughter catch up with work she missed after being absent from school for a long period of time. Having the tutor come to my home was definitely a PLUS. Thanks to the tutor, Ashley is back on track.
Our son is currently being tutored in Algebra II/Trig by Corey. In the last 2 months we've seen our son gain a letter grade, as well as self confidence in what used to be his worst subject. We are so pleased with his progress and my son loves Corey's laid-back style.
I sent my son to Dr. Fikar as a senior. He was diagnosed with multiple disabilities as a child, and I didn't think that there was any hope for him to go to college. Dr. Fikar worked with him several hours each week for two months, and, while it took several weeks before I began to see the improvement, once it started it continued up until his SAT. He went from a 1250 to a 1560! I couldn't believe the results he was able to achieve. We have worked with many tutors prior to going with Dr. Fikar, and all of them were nice and seemingly capable, but none of them were able to move his score by more than 20 points. I never realized that my son had the potential to get an above average SAT Score, given his disabilities. If you have the money to spend, and you want the best for your child, Dr. Fikar is definitely the way to go! We also plan on using his services for our other son who is not LD, and wants to attend Univ. of Chicago one day!
Todd was very effective in helping my daughter prepare for an 8th grade science Regents exam and helping her to truly understand many of the principles she had supposedly learned throughout the year in science class. Would recommend him highly. Also very pleasant personality.
