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).
We have been working with Jeremy for the past 9 months. My daughters have benefited great from his knowledge and expertise in the area of the ACT exam and applying to colleges. He took the time to meet with my husband and I on several occasions to discuss his plan and the girls' progress.
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!
Ray has been phenomenal to work with. My daughter worked with him on her application for college and college essays. He is very knowledgeable, easy to talk to, responds right away and has very good (and mature) insight. I have recommended him to my friends and would highly recommend him to anyone that is applying to school.
Jim really connected with my son, made him feel more confident about preparing for and taking the SAT. He was also really helpful through the college application and essay writing process. Highly recommend--will use again for my 2 younger children!
What a great advisor for college application help. He helped my daughter target colleges that were a good fit for her and write exceptional essays that captured her personality. He also helped her boost her reading sat score when he saw that was the weakest part of her app.
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!

Hallie just began tutoring my 22 year old son in college-level chemistry. They established a good connection and he feels she can help him to get through the year successfully.
My son and I worked with Michelle throughout the college application process. I found Michelle to be incredibly knowledgeable and approachable. She took the time to get to know my son, his strengths, challenges and interests. Michelle went above and beyond when necessary, even reaching out to my son’s high school guidance counselor to get a better idea of “who” Joshua was as a student. Michelle used this knowledge to put together a comprehensive list of schools that she felt would be a good match for him. In the end, Joshua chose a school that he probably wouldn’t have applied to because we weren’t familiar with it. Michelle’s knowledge of schools really helped to expand Joshua’s list of choices. Michelle was helpful to me as a parent. She was always prompt and timely for our conference calls and she guided me as a single parent through the process as well. Michelle was always there to listen to my own concerns and worries and gave me great advice! She was of great assistance during the FAFSA and Common Application processes, providing guidance along the way as needed. I highly recommend her services!!!
I had a fantastic experience. I was guided through every step of the college application process.
Our overall experience with Jenna has been nothing short of excellent. From the first time meeting Jenna to getting my daughter into her first choice college, she helped make the college process less stressful than it would have been. She guided us in the right direction, kept us up to date with deadlines, helped complete applications, essays, resumes, and short answers. She constantly followed up via text or email to ensure we were crossing all of our "t's" and dotting all of our "i's". Before helping with anything she always made sure it was perfection. As the college applications wrapped up, Jenna kept going and encouraged my daughter to apply for scholarships. She was very knowledgeable and kept us informed of all scholarships and worked very hard getting ours done. It doesn't matter If you are looking for just a little help or the complete package, Jenna will always do her best to help and go above and beyond the minimum. She is very passionate about helping kids and it's not just a job for her... she truly cares
Marshall of College Buddha provides excellent and knowledgable information and advice. He knows his stuff! He can lead students to think both in and out of the box about college choices and can really help them create a list of colleges both parents and students will be satisfied with. I highly recommend College Buddha for any family trying to navigate the confusing college application process.

I have recently worked with Stephanie during my college application process and she was such a great help to me. She worked with me on my applications and college research and was extremely helpful to me in identifying the college that was my best fit. I would encourage anybody who is applying to college to meet with her because she will help make this process less stressful and a whole lot more enjoyable!
