I used Arbor Tutors for math and English tutoring for both the GMAT and the GRE (I didn't know what I wanted to do for grad school). I ended up in the top 10% for the GRE and 720 on the GMAT. My tutor was amazing!!! I was so happy my boyfriend hired Arbor for Spanish tutoring. Super happy!

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.

Kamil is an excellent tutor. We found Kamil through this website in our efforts to find a tutor for the SAT preparation. Our focus was on the Math portion of SAT. Kamil is a real professional and has the ability to adapt his teaching to the student. What I mean specifically is that while reviewing concepts and problems he was very flexible in providing multiple explanations to solving problems. I really appreciated the manner in which he was able to connect with my 17 year-old daughter and in my conversations with her she felt confident in his instruction and the value he added. She has found that his tutoring for the SAT has been helpful in her schoolwork as well. I would strongly recommend you reach out to Kamil if you or your child are looking for tutoring that will provide significant help in achieving higher scores. I would absolutely use Kamil again if I were in the market for a tutor for my child.

I've studied Precalculus and Calculus with Sasha. She has a deep understanding of the subjects and clearly, and patiently, articulates the steps to solving problems. She challenges me to solve the problem on my own, only dropping hints, or showing the solution, when I'm truly stuck. She does not waste time and is always encouraging me to try more problems. Administratively, she is responsible and flexible vis-a-vis the time and place of tutoring sessions. She is a valuable asset and a bargain.

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.

RSK Tutoring was so much better than expected. I honestly told RSK that he should be raising his rates for how much work, honesty, and compassion I was getting through his emails and work ethic. I would easily hire him again for future needs. His credentials are spot on.

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!

It is so hard to find a quality SAT tutor but Nick is it! He was absolutely fantastic! My son needed help on the reading section and Nick got right to work by targeting his weakest areas. Over 4 or 5 months, my son's confidence and scores skyrocketed. Wow!!

Jeff was an excellent tutor for the quant section of the GMAT. We improved my total score by over 30 pts in just one month. He was tough on me, kept me accountable and motivated, and helped me learn and not just memorize. Jeff aligned his curriculum to my goals and flexed to my schedule. He had an excellent technology setup that made virtual tutoring even more effective than in-person. After spending way too much money on one of the "top" test prep services, hiring Jeff and Target Test Prep was an easy decision and well worth the investment.

John definitely is a good tutor in the sense that he has smart strategies to help students improve. I think he was very resourceful and patient when I worked with him in trying to help me understand my mistakes. He wasn't stingy in terms of time either and certainly wanted me to succeed. Something I think John can improve on, however, is making the life of his students a tad easier. What I mean by that is that he sometimes makes working with him a bit of a challenge. Often he would respond to emails late or send graded material over days late. There were things that he said he would send over but it seems he has completely forgotten about it. I completely understand his other obligations in terms of family and work but it's a little disheartening to see that at a point he ceased sending over things he initially promised. Maybe he has a lot of other obligations on his schedule and I understand that, however, I wish he would make this more clear if it were the case. Anyway, if you need extra support with LSAT tutoring I would recommend him for his skills and strategies.

Erik was extremely helpful to my son. My son is not the disrespectful type but does not always take well to teachers who he thinks cannot teach well. He had nothing but positives to say about Erik. He enjoyed being tutored by him, and felt he got a lot from the sessions. And yes, he did very well on the SAT, finishing in the top 1%. Thank you Erik.

Gail is a very kind warm hearted person. Before Gail my son wasn't doing very well and his grades were poor, he always complained about not feeling well to get out of going to school, he would always say I hate school. Since we have hired Gail my son couldn't be happier he smiles going to school he looks forward to his tutor coming every week it's completely private in my own home. My son has caught up on many missing assignment's, his teacher's have notice a big difference in him. I would Highly recommend Above Grade Level In-Home Tutoring with Gail Switsky. She is always available to answer any questions you may have and more importantly Gail will go above and beyond for your child. We are very pleased.

Tristan tutored my son for his SAT's and did a fabulous job. My son was not confident when he first took them and he had not studied. I felt that for him to have a chance at a higher score he needed one on one tutoring. Even though Tristan resided in Connecticut and my son in Long Island, Tristan took the challenge and tutored my son via Skype. Xavier recently took the SAT's again in January and his score were raised over 100 points. Tristan only tutored my son for six weeks. I wonder how many more points my son would of raised his score if he had been tutored by Tristan longer. I attribute my son 's success to Tristan and his patience and diligence with my son. He was always on time and professional. He provided written reports after each session and kept me abreast of what he would target with Xavier to improve his scores. I am very happy that I chose Tristan to tutor my son. His prices were very reasonable and he was knowledgeable and kind towards my son. I recommend him and his organization to anyone he wants to help their child succeed. So far my son has been admitted to two private colleges and he has received grants. Thank you Tristan!
