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).
Excellent help with son on college prep and study skills.
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.
Terrific Tutor! Sasha is very patient and always willing to explain things in multiple times, using many different examples. My understanding of college level Physics improved within a few sessions. I have been with Sasha for over a year now at the collegiate level, and I would not look for another tutor.
Having never hired a tutor before, I found the task of finding a tutor daunting. I saw JP highly rated on Thumbtack and decided to hire him for my daughter’s SAT/ACT prep. JP exceeded our expectations! He was able to help us decide what test to focus on and evaluated the areas my daughter needed the most help in. JP worked on a plan and goals with her. She said he was easy to understand and extremely knowledgeable on the subject areas as well as the overall tests. JP has a calm demeanor and is a very patient teacher. I appreciated the updates on her progress in addition to JP being accessible to answer questions we had along the way. My daughter’s confidence has soared after being tutored by JP. Her approach to taking the ACT/SATs is much more positive now. We would highly recommend Justus Prep!
My daughter had the privilege of working with James on her ACT prep these past two months. My daughter who is very bright but struggles with focus and lack of confidence clicked nicely with James. He was extremely timely and easy to schedule with. Our daughter found his sessions to be very engaging and helpful not only with her ACT prep, but also with her regular studies. My daughter set an ACT goal for herself and was extremely surprised and thrilled that she scored beyond her goal. We highly recommend James as an ACT prep tutor!
I went to The Harvard Review for my MCAT Prep. I had already gone to Kaplan first, and they were only able to help me get a 502. I was hoping for Cornell, but my MCAT wasn't high enough. I began tutoring with Dr. Fikar last Fall, and took my MCAT early this year. I got a 519, and am now looking at Columbia. This would not have been possible without the phenomenal instruction I received from Dr. Fikar. I will be forever grateful
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.
Ray is a great tutor and a great person. He was extremely patient with my 9 year old son when we asked him to help with some last minute ISEE prep. My son actually looked forward to his sessions. Ray helped keep him on track when he started to wander. Ray is responsive, punctual, & cares about his students. I would hire him again in a minute.
Jim ran a multi week SAT prep course for 7 students at a local underserved high school. He was excellent with the students. Extremely positive and upbeat. Always prepared and on time. Very focused and disciplined with the group. Feed back from all students very positive. Yes he went above and beyond
Apex Test Prep was well worth the investment for my GMAT studies. Mike helped me raise my score from 630 to 700 in 6 weeks. I had been trying to breakthrough on the quant section for two years with no success. Mike's deep understanding of how the test is constructed helped me to see it in a way that allowed me to perform significantly better on the test. He is a GMAT wizard, I would highly recommend!
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!
Chris was very detailed and responsive throughout the process. He really turned my resume around. My initial resume was great for a job out of college but he was excellent in turning it around now that I had a few years of banking experience. His advice on highlighting experience on deals was excellent. I'd recommend him without hesitation!
Horace has good intuition on how to motivate a student, which is a rare asset in the test prep world.
John rescued me from the wreckage of my Kaplan experience to help me reach the level of understanding I wished for on the LSAT. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an alternative to the pricy and useless prep companies out there.
Samantha has been very responsive, professional and is working very well with my son for his SAT prep. She is knowledgeable and patient! My son said his first lesson was a huge help. We’ll be continuing!
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.
Nirmal was very helpful and thorough. I've taken Manhattan GMAT classes and self studies including OG books but I was struggling to get through a certain score that was not happy with. Nirmal really helped me focus on the areas that I needed help on, CR and RC especially, and I improved so much in a month and half. I actually did feel better studying on my own outside of tutor sessions also, thanks to Nirmal. How to approach different question types, how to play with the timing, and etc are all very different for different people and Nirmal really helped me find my own pace and my own tactics to practice. He was very patient and thorough with questions I had, and guided me through the score I finally feel comfortable with. I appreciate all the effort and time Nirmal took to make sure that I understand and do better each time -- even when my mistakes were getting repeated and my scores did not increase drastically. It's also how you take on this time with Nirmal and how much effort you put in. :) If you are on the fence, no need to look further and just go for it! I highly recommend Nirmal. Good luck!
T. Fields was great! My son decided last minute to take the June SAT after his May SAT score wasn’t what he had hoped. He had about 8 days to prep. Tristan responded right away & was willing to work with what we wanted. No set minimum of sessions, no sales pitch. My son met with him 3 times, and Tristan’s knowledge of the test was impressive! He has such insight, tips & targeted help- the one on one with Tristan honestly blew the other group prep classes away! My son took the SAT again & was confident he improved his score. He was able to use the strategy Tristan taught him, and felt prepared in the math section. We won’t get the scores until July 11.... But we are feeling hopeful! Stay tuned. Tristan was kind, polite, professional & again, his in depth knowledge of the SAT is invaluable. S.T in 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.
