Will was able to reach my high school daughter and relate to her through her outside interests. He was highly encouraging to her and helped build her confidence in her math skills. We have used his tutoring on and off for 3 years. Her grades are always better when she receives consistent tutoring from Will. I highly recommend him especially if your child is struggling with self-confidence in an academic area.
I've been an educator for the past 35 years, and will confidently share that Ben Brady was a phenomenal SAT tutor for my son, Josh. Josh had previously completed two comprehensive SAT test prep courses with nationally known companies, and his test scores rose around 80 points from the PSAT to the SAT. Ben's test prep plan for Josh was pure genius and innovative. He said, "lets review Joshua's test results to learn those specific areas where he lost the most points, and tackle those areas with specialized, individualized test prep." As a result of Ben's work with Josh, his scores climbed 230 points. Ben is an amazing teacher who goes right to the heart of the area/s needing the most work, designing a program enabling the student to excel in those areas the next time around. Today, Josh is sitting on 1430 scores, likely placing him in a position of being competitive at every college to which he's applying. So, if you live in the NYC area, this is a complete and total no-brainer. For $150 an hour, in Ben Brady you are getting someone worth $500 an hour, or more. Plus, Ben's an incredibly nice guy. So, if you are looking for a great test prep professional for yourself, or your child, in the NYC area, Ben's the guy. Hands down. I could not recommend him any more highly John Hoffman NYC, NY
My daughter took the SAT three times on her own and received 1060, 1080, and 1100. She really wanted to get to 1250+ because that score would make it a near certainty that she could get accepted by her top-choice colleges. Dane did a 10-week SAT prep course with my daughter, which resulted in her scoring a 1280 on the SAT. Dane was professional, reliable, and supportive, and my daughter was very comfortable with him because it was clear that he truly wanted her to succeed. Several of my neighbors used tutors from large local tutoring companies that were much more expensive than Dane, but their kid's results --- while positive --- were not nearly as good as my daughter's results were. The experience, overall, was outstanding for both me and my daughter and I will definitely hire Dane again when my younger children need tutoring.
My son is a dual sport athlete and finding available time to get his SAT prep in around a demanding schedule was near impossible till we found Allen. Allen worked around his schedule, between school and practices. He came to our house, was professional, prompt and cared about his success, not only on the SAT's but his school work. Allen offered to have him call should he have issue with his chemistry or Calculus homework. Allen showed him techniques that would assist in increasing his SAT score. He worked with my son about 3 or 4 sessions and he had an increase in his overall score of 210 points. I found Allen on Thumbtack and was a little skeptical and leary at first having someone come to our home, but Allens professionalism and results speak for themselves.
I participated in SAT tutoring and college prep with TEACH. It helped me in so many ways. I got into each & every college I wanted & am now attending my dream school, penn state.
Heather is very personable and puts kids at ease quickly. She knows the tests, the strategies for both reading and math and she is a great PSAT/SAT prep tutor.
Christina just started working with my daughter Emily. So far her experience has been great. Christina seems to be extremely knowledgeable regarding the SAT prep.
Over the past 4 years, Sarah Wright has tutored 2 of my children and myself in various areas of math ranging from math SAT prep to advanced graduate level Statistics and several areas in-between! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Sarah's teaching abilities and her level of knowledge in all areas of math. She is truly gifted in tutoring under even the most challenging of circumstances. She is incredible at deciphering a students learning style and knowing how to approach teaching them to achieve the best result. Sarah's dedication, patience and knowledge are truly amazing. The results from sarahs tutoring are excellent and I highly recommend her.
Dana does it ALL. Any kind of student, at any level of ability or skill or motivation - she is great at quickly building a rapport with the student and establishing trust. From there she is able to deftly identify each student's strengths and needs, target her instruction in a highly personalized, dynamic way. Her instruction is extremely effective; she has multiple creative ways to explain concepts, and she's very good at pinpointing areas of confusion. Not only can she teach any kid, she can teach any level of high school math. She's also provides outstanding college test prep services. My son brought his SAT math score up 100 points after 5 one-hour sessions with Dana. Working with her is easy and pleasant; she's flexible, accommodating, friendly, professional and very understanding about the busy and unpredictable schedules of high school kids. She's also very caring; many times she has moved her schedule around to squeeze in an extra hour with my kid the night before an exam, or when he's just feeling overwhelmed. She's amazing, well worth every penny. In fact, I think she's a great bargain.
I first contacted Joseph Hammerman to help my son who was having difficulty with tests in Algebra 2/Trig. He was able to build my son's knowledge and confidence sufficiently to raise his test scores by two grades. He continued to work with him for SAT prep, with my son scoring 720 on his first try. We are continuing tutoring for a second sitting of the SAT and possibly the SAT Math Subject test. We are very happy with the one-on-one attention that he has given our son. He is especially good with question and answer, give and take exchanges. He is clearly very strong in all aspects of Mathematics and test taking strategies. I would certainly recommend him for Mathematics tutoring.
My son is in 10th grade and a bright boy. However, with ACT tests coming up, we wanted him to reach his highest potential. Through the Chelsea International Getting Into The Ivys test prep program, my son has excelled so much so that he is up to go to Stanford. After doing 6 weeks of private tuition with Dr. Michelle, her patience, understanding and encouragement, has driven my son’s greatest results. He scored 34 on his first time taking the ACT and he had no prior ACT testing experience. I am so impressed and so thankful for the professional experience of Chelsea International.
Melissa was an awesome tutor. I had taken an SAT prep course but wasn't scoring high on practice tests- esp in math. She really understands the math and is very patient. I feel so much better and my practice scores are really good. I think I 'll do well on the real test.
I was able to raise my GRE math scores as well as my writing scores from the last time I took the test. Andrew is a very good tutor, very friendly, patient, and supportive. I would definitely recommend him and go back to him for tutoring.

For college admissions essays, I help students write clear and compelling essays. If you don't even know where to start, I ask questions that help you find the arc of your story and support you in developing the narrative with strong details. If you have an idea, I help you think through a strategy. For ACT tutoring, I give students the tools they need to learn the test, not the subject matter, so they can be confident on test day.
I have over 5 years of education experience and am a relatable, down to Earth instructor. My area of expertise is science and math, but I know a lot about test prep and the college preparation process.
I am currently a college student who is studying English, Spanish and political science. I think that having been a high school student recently, I have a very good idea of what to expect from standardized testing and can prepare students using my own experience to guide me. Additionally, I am a very strong writer and enjoy editing papers, because everyone should be able to vocalize their thoughts and work in a way that is understandable and is going to be well received. By fixing the grammar or format of a piece of writing, you can transform it so that although the content stays the same, the message is clearer and the response is more gratifying.

I am truly enthusiastic about the subjects that I tutor. I studied Math in college and have been tutoring for Math (anywhere from algebra up to Calculus & statistics) and for the SAT/ACT (all sections) for about 6 months. My students have averaged about 4 points of increase on the ACT as a result of an average of 12 hours of tutoring. I also played collegiate baseball and can relate to any students hoping to continue their athletic career in college.
