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).

Math Allergy + World’s Best Tutor - Time = 760 score + Top 5 MBA acceptance! Dan is the reason I’m heading to my dream school without a doubt. I can’t imagine scoring over 750 without his help. I wasted an entire year spinning my wheels with 3 different test prep companies and feeling like a lost cause before finding Dan- and not to mention consistently scoring under 600 despite embarrassing amounts of effort. Less than 6 months of working with Dan boosted my raw quant score by a full 10 points and it kept on climbing. Dan is patient, encouraging and a complete genius. Most importantly, Dan gave me both the confidence and battle tested approaches to hit a score that I would have laughed off a few months earlier. It still boggles my mind that a 200 point increase is even possible, but Dan made it happen. I don't normally write online reviews, but I can't stop sharing the secret weapon to making your dream school acceptances roll in aka working with Dan and never looking back. You’re welcome :)

Before I, the student, began working with Jeremy, I was having little to no improvement in consecutive SAT exams. I was having so much trouble trying to figure out the proper way to study, in how I could improve myself and jump into the 1500s which was my goal. However, I was leveling out at about the high 1300s, with a loss on what to do. Kaplan Test Prep did not help much, as they provided often passive learning strategies, and failed to really help the student with effective, real-working strategies. Jeremy Fine knows the ins and the outs of not only the SAT but the ACT as well. His vast knowledge about the exams, combined with his professionalism in them and in colleges globally (college prep as well), made him the perfect tutor that ultimately improved my test score by more than 100 points in the span of 5 weeks! The strategies that he gave me, and the vigor that he gave every motivating speech with, really helped me learn how to tackle every single question. I would recommend Jeremy to anybody who really wants to improve with a passion. Obviously, Jeremy is not a miracle maker, who can automatically increase a score by hundreds without the student doing any work. I worked very hard, and Jeremy takes that very seriously. But coming from a kid who finds standardized testing almost impossible, he really seemed like a magician to me.

Sasha helped me go from the 43rd percentile to the 55th on the GRE quant section. She gave me the tools to be able to solve all the problems on the test. After tutoring with Sasha I was able to feel more confident and relaxed when taking the test, she’s the best!

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 I’m so grateful that we had him in our corner. Simply put, Jim is a fabulous tutor. He very quickly assessed Conor’s 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 Conor’s 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 Conor’s 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 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!

I would definitely recommend Odyssey Test Prep for anyone preparing for the LSAT! I booked a handful of private tutoring sessions in the 6 weeks leading up to my exam to fine-tune my methods and it was a huge help. My tutor Sandy was extremely helpful and worked me through the barriers I was trying to break as I got closer to test day.

SW 410 (stats) is the hardest class. I have a learning disabiity that makes a class like this really hard to understand. R & L Consultants made this process easier. He explained things until I understood. I had a big project that needed you to explain a hyposesis and then you run a test. So hard to do, but can I say R&L consultants made this project almost enjoyable. He is truely invested and cares about you and your success. I would hire this pro again in a heart beat!

Had an emergency math issue and was going to hire him for a few days to help me pass my Clep test. Doesn’t text to confirm, even though he saw my text. Doesn’t respond to phone calls or text messages, until 20 mins after he was supposed to show up to our appointment. He texts saying that he had an issue adding the appointment to the calendar. But he knew about the appointment because he saw my confirmation message earlier today. Now I’m standing in the rain scrambling to find another tutor to help with my Clep that’s coming up in a few days because i can’t trust this won’t happen again from him.

Daniel is an incredible job preparing my daughter for the SAT. She managed an over 300 point jump in her practice tests. Most importantly, Daniel make my daughter more confident in her abilities and comfortable with the overall process. A good tutor inspires a student not only to work hard, but also to expect better things from themselves and Daniel certainly excelled at that.

My son's overall score increased by 4 points from a 28 to a 32 after John worked with him. He felt confident and very well prepared going into his ACT. The study and test taking skills he learned were are directly applicable to the test, and his pre-test checklist was an excellent planning aid. I highly recommend John to any student who's committed to successfully improving ACT performance. Caroline P. Westport,CT

Thomas was one of the best tutors I have ever had. After trying a few other SAT tutors, I decided to stick with him. Thomas found different ways to help me understand specific topics and worked with me when I needed extra help. He's constantly researching new tutroing methods and implements them into his sessions. With his help, I was able to increase my SAT score by around 200 points. My parents even signed my sister up for tutoring with Thomas because they saw what an amazing tutor he was. After my SAT process was done, Thomas walked me through the college process and helped me with my essays. Because of him, I am going to college with a full scholarship and I will graduate debt free. Thomas is an amazing tutor and an amazing person. He builds connections with his students and their families that extend outside of the academic sphere. I could not be more grateful to Thomas for all that he has done for me and my family.

I was not a good test taker...until I started working with Mr. V. He was very thorough and patient with me, even staying to make sure I felt confident in the lesson. He was very flexible, especially as it got closer to test time. I enjoyed my test prep and Mr. V helped me understand things bettet than some of my teachers could. With his help, I was able to get my score up to 1250! I highly recommend Mr. V as a tutor

Michelle has worked with my now 11 year old daughter, for 5 years. She suffers from severe dyslexia & adhd. I can honestly say she would never be at grade level without Michelle. She has single handedly kept her up to speed with her incredible knowledge & ability to teach those who have trouble in a school environment. My daughter is now enrolled in a private prep school & is excelling. I'll forever continue to use Michelle every summer until she graduates. She is beyond gifted, with endless experience & expertise in all forms of educational delays or simply a tutor to further excel with any child that doesn't fit "the mold". I absolutely couldn't recommend her more, as much as I'd like to keep her to myself, I know she can help so many students & they love her dearly. My daughter, who has never been a huge fan of "school" never wants to leave Michelle! I can attest from years of sweat & tears of struggle, she has elliviated most of her worry.
