I hired Jeremy to tutor me in the ACT. I contacted him planning for to get at least a 30 on the ACT. I am now aiming for a 34 on my next ACT due to Jeremy's tutoring. He has been exceeding my expectations in the way he deconstructs the test and makes doing well on it so much easier. In addition, he serves as my college adviser, and I have finally been given some good direction in the complex college process. Right now, I am looking into high level schools like multiple Ivy League schools, WashU in St. Louis, Vanderbilt, Tufts, and Bucknell. Also, he is very flexible with scheduling and very personal with students and family. Highly recommended!

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 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.

James was the perfect fit for our teenager, for both ACT tutoring and college application/essay coaching. Not only did the ACT scores in question jump 5 points to a high score, but he had a pragmatic and helpful approach to the college process that was very well received. He had a positive outlook and cultivated confidence in our son, who had been a little nervous about the application process. James came to our house and was always polite, professional and on time. So far we've had all positive decisions from colleges and are so grateful!

We have recently hired Dr. Fikar and Harvard Review as SAT/ACT tutors for my son. Thus far they have been prompt and very professional. Dr. Fikar is a great motivator and seems to have invaluable knowledge of the test and how to get great results. We are at the start of our training but we already feel that we have made a great choice. He is fast to reply and easy to work with. And most importantly, my son if fired up to do well.

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.

Ethan was a key factor in helping me achieve a 35 on the ACT. His guidance is impeccable, acting in the best interest of the student; when I struggled to improve my SAT score, he made the decisive choice to change our preparation path to toward the ACT. The change was essential to achieving the high score that I wanted. Although I was never a humanities-oriented person, he also helped to improve my human skills which in turn boosted my scores. My reading and English scores skyrocketed after he helped me these more abstract sections with logic and reasoning. I recommend Ethan to anyone who is looking to improve their scores; his knowledge and poise are unmatched.

My oldest of three children is 22 years old so I have been through my fair share of tutors. Lenore is the best tutor I have encountered. She really cares for her students and will go above and beyond to help them succeed. Needless to say, I would highly recommend Lenore.

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.

Mr. Frost was our daughter's Mandarin teacher in middle school. He also worked with her as a tutor in the summers. We credit his enthusiasm and natural talent for teaching for our daughter's love of the subject. His high standards became her high standards. Her plan to pursue Chinese as a major in college is due in no small part to her experience as his student.

Samantha has been an excellent ACT tutor for me. While most tutors simply teach you a standard curriculum and simply reveal answers to wrong questions, she makes sure that what you learn is understood properly and can be practically used, and really goes in depth in going through your mistakes. This ensures that you don't repeat the same mistakes for similar questions in the future.
