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.
Tutoring was very professional and went the extra mile- providing homework and tailored study techniques. I would absolutely recommend and hire again.
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.
Aron was preparing me for SAT and helping me in my college Algebra class. Thanks to him I did well on both tests. He is a knowledgeable and patient tutor who is capable to teach math on any level. He is much better than any tutors I had in the past. Definitely would recommend him.
James has been working with our son on math and on SAT prep for about 9 months. Son's grades have improved and his confidence is greatly improved. James is really able to connect with my son, who in turn steps up to meet the challenge..
What I enjoyed most about working with Ethan was how much he legitimately cared about tutoring me. This interest was evident in the quality of materials he produced for tutoring sessions, his responsiveness even outside of working hours, and his consistent punctuality. He made the process of setting up an appointment seamless and made sure to set up a phone call before our first session to understand my needs as a student. Thanks to Ethan I was able to improve my score on the SAT by 250 points and increase my chances of admission into my dream college. I highly recommend his services.
We have sent two of our children to The Harvard Review, one for SAT prep and one for MCAT prep. Both children benefited greatly from their services, and we will be sending our youngest there as well when the time comes.
My experience with Ray was excellent. He was prompt, attentative and extremely efficient in breaking down the material for my son’s SAT prep. My son said Ray made learning very enjoyable. Highly recommend! I will definitely be hiring him again for weekly sessions once my daughter begin preparing next year.
For over a year Nick tutored our daughter once a week for her SAT test. He assigned homework and gave lessons that improved her score around 130 points. We cant thank him enough.
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!
we hired Hallie to tutor our hs junior son for the april ACT. she was pleasant, courteous and effective. he scored 33 and we are very very happy with the outcome.
Horace has good intuition on how to motivate a student, which is a rare asset in the test prep world.
He is awesome teacher
Both my son and I had an amazing experience with Katya! She tailored her teaching techniques to make the material more engaging and made my son excited about learning and tracking his improvement after each lesson. Besides providing guidance and helping with practice tests she provided invaluable test taking and memory retention tips. She was very responsive and accommodating, willing to work with our schedules to make sure my son had enough hours of practice before his exam. I highly recommend Katya to anyone looking for SAT tutoring as she is worth every penny.
We had an excellent experience with Mayya, who is great at both explaining the basics and helping prep for tests.
He was very organized, smart, and really cool. I was very nervous knowing that I will need a tutor for my sat, but when I met him I felt very comfortable. He did his job great and gave me much confidence. He helped me with practices and we always talked about strategies to conquer problems. Overall was a great experience!
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.
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.
I have never used a tutor before, so I was apprehensive to use one recommended to me by my fellow student for my ACT. Having sat them before I really needed help to ensure I could raise my score. So I engaged Chelsea International. I am flipped over by the level of support I have received from them as a student and now realize what my friend was talking about, no wonder he was always doing so well. My ACT score came in above average at a 28 and I am really pleased. Thank you!
I got into my desired college
