I needed a lot of help with the GMAT. After having taken Manhattan GMAT classes and spending a lot of money and time, I knew I needed to get a private tutor because I was only at a 600. Arbor Tutors provided me with an amazing tutor for the GMAT. He helped me through both verbal and Quant sections and I ended up getting a 740.

We are just beginning private tutoring with Jeremy but our experience so far has been excellent. He was very responsive and informative during our initial communications. Now that we have hired him, he has developed a tailored, step-wise plan to prepare our daughter for ACT. We appreciate that he cares very much about the "whole student."

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.

I studied with James for my SATs. He has a very unique way of approaching the exam that my prior tutors did not offer. For example, he taught me how to analyze questions based on the way they are written. This was a great skill to have and made me much more confident about going into the test room.

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.

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.

One of the best tutors my daughter ever had. She struggled with the sat for a year until we found him. He made lessons around her needs and that helped her do well. She was able to get into the college she wanted.

My daughter has had two ACT sessions with Denny. He is patient and is completely understanding of her needs. Denny is not only well organized, patient and thorough, but he also goes beyond in providing lesson plans; he assigns her home work daily to help her avoid procrastination. Excellent tutor! Professional, well prepared! Extremely smart, but still very patient, positive and encouraging when someone doesn't understand a concept. Highly recommend him for ACT prep!!!!

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!!!

AWESOME TUTOR. I had a very small window before taking my TASC exam. His ability to explain things in a matter that makes sense to all was KEY to my success. I scored a overall score of 2980 on my first try. Thank you Michael, I can now say I've finally completed one of my goals and it's all thanks to you.

You know it’s a nightmare out there, looking for the right fit for your kids when you are searching for test prep tutors. I have twins going into the SATs and there are just so many bad teachers out there. I really had to ask Chelsea International a lot of questions when I came across them. I have to say, they blew me away. Not just with their professional nature, but also with their level of expertise, care, and true understanding of what it takes to bring out your child’s fullest potential. I would recommend this tutoring service to anyone. The kids have been working with them now for the last few months, and the difference in their work is amazing. I am really looking forward to seeing their scores after their SAT tests.

I have been working with John at GSU’s Tutoring Center for 2 years, and from what I’ve known of him, he is an excellent tutor, who is always willing to go extra miles to make sure that students understand the problems. It is not unusual for everyone to see John staying with the students in the library hallway even the open-hours has passed. He always seems to be passionate about math and science. You can tell the zeal just radiates from him when he talks or teaches. I would definitely recommend anyone to come to him if they need help on math or physics.

Jared is extremely patient in the learning process. I never feel embarrassed for not knowing the right answers, and I am more comfortable asking questions with him than with any other tutor I've had. My grades have improved a lot, and I feel more confident in class. He is also really flexible with his schedule.

Professional, Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor Kesly taught my son Algebra and Biology. She was patient and made sure he understood each concept before moving on to the next topic. We look forward to our next lesson with her.
