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).
Jeremy is an excellent teacher and can help you improve in any subject! He is fantastic with test prep such as the Algebra Regents where I scored over a 90 and with final exams. He also helped me with all of my study skills which has made a big difference with my time management. He simplifies everything, makes our lessons fun, and creates a plan for each week. I highly recommend using Jeremy to help you with all areas of your academic and test prep work!
Kamil is a fantastic tutor. We hired him for ACT math prep. We will know for sure in a few weeks, but based on her practice test scores she has gained a lot of points since her last ACT. We would definitely recommend him to anyone. He has a really nice manner and my daughter felt very comfortable working with him.
Aron is very knowledgeable about ACT/SAT math prep. He explained everything very well, and was also very easy to work with in setting up the appointment.
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 Im so grateful that we had him in our corner. Simply put, Jim is a fabulous tutor. He very quickly assessed Conors 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 Conors 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 Conors 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.
I chose Crimson Scholars for my daughter's pre-calculus tutor because they were very responsive to my request, was flexible with our needs, and went above and beyond to communicate with me. She had her first session with Frank and said she learned more in an hour than what she has all year. We are skyping and using an app for her tutoring. Homework and old tests to review are scanned to assist with content direction.
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.
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!
Wonderful experience working with this company. They connect me with competent tutors and they always respond to my inquiries immediately.
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!
Kim tudored my son for the SAT. She was easy to work with; reliable, great communicator, friendly and very knowledgeable about the Math portion of the test. My son learned a lot and his test scores improved! I highly recommend Kim!
Eve was an outstanding tutor for the ISEE. We hired her with just 6 weeks to go until the test - we had been using a New Haven-based tutoring company that just was not doing the job - in that very short period of time Eve managed to coach our daughter from the middle of the pack (ISEE steniles 4 and 5) toward the top (stiles 6 and 7). Plus she was very flexible about scheduling and was amenable to meeting our daughter in New Haven. We only wish we'd enlisted her sooner! We will definitely seek her assistance for our next set of test preps!
I worked with one of the tutors for a graduate statistics course last semester. I was so pleased with the results I continue to use them for my second graduate Stats course this semester. The tutor is very knowledgeable & using this service boosts my confidence for the course.
Horace has good intuition on how to motivate a student, which is a rare asset in the test prep world.
SAT is NO joke! Katya is a laser-focused tutor and helped me get a HIGH score. She actually takes SAT and ACT tests herself and always scores in the 99th percentile. I don’t know any other tutors that do that. She is very smart, but also very cool. We saw each other twice a week for about 5 months before my test. It made a difference of almost 300 points! Use her!!!
WOW! Renjith is was such a great tutor for my four years at university. As a pre-med student I cannot believe how he juggled getting great grades and helping other students with their coursework. I struggled through chemistry, calculus, organic chemistry, biology, and spanish. With Renjith's constant tutoring sessions, I was able not only to pass but excel in my classes. Renjith's teaching philosophy transcends dry memorization, but he actually focuses on the student's learning experience. He was able to breakdown seemingly complex subjects into very applicable formats. Without Renjith's tutoring, I would not be a successfully graduated student. During difficult subjects, Renjith went above and beyond with his patience in making sure I fully understood concepts. Renjith has also excelled on the SAT/ACT/MCAT so I am very confident he would be a great tutor for those subjects. Thanks again Renjith! I owe my academic career to you.
We met in a small group once a week for SAT prep. It was a relaxed setting and we got a lot of work done. We started off with a practice test of both the act and the sat which was very helpful. I found the one on one session to be especially helpful, and there was never a question that went unanswered. I really enjoyed the class and got a lot out of it.
Justin has been tutoring my son for the ACT's. His help has been invaluable. Not only has he mentored him in the exam process, but he has helped him with application essays for summer college programs which proved to be very successful. My son was excepted into both the Harvard Summer College as well as the Steven Institute Summer Pre-College program. Justin was extremely helpful in the process.
I contacted Robert after being impressed by his tutoring philosophy. Having only a few months of being tutored by him, the end result was getting to the 98th percentile from the 93 percentile for me. Robert is one of the most patient tutors I have ever had (I have received tutoring since 8th grade), and he explains everything clearly. Follow his logic and do not be afraid to ask any questions about anything. He is an expert on the whole organization of test prep, and he will provide you with the most useful websites for additional test prep. In addition, he is knowledgeable about other subjects as well, which is why I continue to seek his help with my issues in college such as time management and study skills. While working with Robert on the ACT we spoke about other areas of my education as well as my college plans. I came to realize that Robert took a sincere interest in my overall well-being, and consistently made suggestions that invaluable to me on many fronts. Within a few weeks I began to call upon him to help me with my educational plan and college applications. Together, we developed strategies to strengthen my application and Robert helped me to develop my college essays. We went through the trials and tribulations of the college application process, and every step of the way Robert was there to help guide me. Even today, as a freshman at an Ivy League university Robert was there to help me with course selection in addition to many of the challenges an incoming student faces on a college campus. One thing that struck me the most is his ability to understand people, especially how one person responds to different situations. This is important because he is able to understand what is exactly preventing someone from achieving the best of their ability. For example, there was a specific component that I was struggling with my coursework, and he helped me overcome that problem after identifying a specific study limitation that I did not know I had. Over time, he has become a mentor for me. Truly you will be very lucky to have Robert as a tutor because he goes above and beyond for you, and young adults need someone to guide them through difficult times.
My son is in 10th grade and a bright boy. However, with the ACT tests coming up we wanted him to reach his full potential. By using the Chelsea International test prep tutoring service, my son has excelled so much. He is now prepped to go to Stanford, and this is after only doing 6 short weeks of tutoring with Dr. Michelle. Her patience, understanding and encouragement, has driven my son to reach the greatest heights. He scored 35/36. I am so impressed and so thankful for the professional service of Chelsea International Schooling at Home.
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!
