Bob tutored my son with Algebra 2. He really liked the way Bob explained everything so that he could understand.
Ms. Jill was excellent from the start. She met with my daughter for an initial "introduction" meeting before getting started with an actual tutoring session to ensure it would be a good fit and that my daughter would be comfortable with her. She spoke in length with me to get to know my child's strengths, weaknesses, personalities and what exactly I was looking for in a tutor. Ms. Jill really connects with my daughter and works to find out where she is weak in reading comprehension and vocabulary so she can help strengthen those weaknesses. My daughter has a learning difference and Ms. Jill has proven to be able to navigate through that to help her understand the information being taught. She is very patient, kind and understanding which makes it a great fit for my daughter who can at times be very sensitive and get frustrated when not catching on as quick as she would like to. In just a few sessions, Ms. Jill has helped boost her confidence and given her strategies to help with reading comprehension, synonyms, antonyms and vocabulary in school and during testing. I highly recommend Mrs. Max as a tutor, especially for children with learning differences. She really gets through and makes a difference.
Maria is incredibly smart and well-informed about the challenges facing students in these days of high-stakes, timed tests. She is the only person who ever spoke to the need for my child to learn the actual skills tested as important tools for success in college and life. It's sad but true that everyone else I met stressed "getting higher test scores" as an end in itself an not as the outcome of real learning. My child had some learning differences and greatly benefitted from the clear expectations and immediate feedback that she received in the TEACH program. She was entirely uninterested in spending time and money on an effort to "raise her score" But she was more than willing to spend time learning things she knew were clear gaps in her education, skills she would need in college. Ultimately, she took her standardized test with much more confidence and felt great about all that she learned in the process.
Mr. Arnold is very experienced and works well with my daughter. She is looking forward to her continued sessions with him and improved test scores.
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 has met with our son twice so far for ACT work. (two hour sessions) He is learning how to better prepare for the test and focusing on the content area that he needs to review. Christina is excellent with follow up and assigning targeted review material.
Very attentive and patient. I feel so comfortable with her even when I am feeling anxious about math. I am having her help me pass a college placement test for math as an adult. She's great. Hire Michelle!
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.
Highly recommended for any age level and grade. My daughter has already seen vast improvements in her overall confidence and test scores. Judy is truly the best!!!!! Hire her, you'll be happy you did.
I was accepted into a university due to Dwight's efforts and more particularly, his way of teaching. Dwight helped me (I had just got out of the marines and had not been in high school in 4 years) to learn how to THINK. Yes, he taught me formulas, science and how things work, but more importantly he taught me how to THINK. It was hard getting back in a school mindset. My acceptance to college was based on an ACT score I hadn't taken yet. Dwight had been helping me prep to take it. Come test day honestly not a thing he taught me from the test prep was on that test. But him teaching me how to THINK about every part to every question, equation, and how to analyze scientific data, is what helped me to succeed and pass the ACT to get into college.
Laura truly cares about everyone that she works with. Her ability to quickly assess my needs and my areas for improvement are incomparable, and she always does so while keeping me engaged and focused on the skills she teaches me. With her help I was able to raise my test scores, and get into all of my top colleges.
Mark was a godsend for my family. My son was diagnosed with dyslexia and was below reading level. I was suddenly thrust into a situation of quick research on dyslexia and what help was available. Needless to say I was stressed. Tutors were very expensive and hard to find in my area. Then I found Mark who had all the right training for my child's issues, was reasonably priced, and additionally had a fun personality. He kept my son on task but made time for fun puzzles and games. My son is in fourth grade this year and was independently tested..he is at grade level. He can read to learn now and does so every day. Thanks, Mark.
My daughter worked with The Ivy Team for SAT Verbal prep. The Ivy Team provided us a great tutor who helped my daughter raise her Verbal score to near perfect! We are very pleased with our experience with The Ivy Team and would highly recommend them to anyone.
Awesome instructor!!! I feel well prepared for the SAT subject test - Spanish. Great testing strategies!!! Thank you!!!
We sent all three of our kids to Peter Schmidt's Prepare Test Preparation for help with SAT test preparation. All three saw their scores rise after working with him. He has years of experience, he knows the test, and he understands how to help his students improve their performance. Peter communicates well, he sets clear expectations, and he holds his students accountable. We were very pleased with our experience and would recommend Prepare Test Preparation to anyone who is looking for this type of service. - Ian T.
Steven Greene tutors our son, who is a junior in high school. His teaching style, especially in chemistry and physics, helped our son grasp the information with ease. We also have Steven going over SAT strategies to prepare for the upcoming test. From a parent's point of view, Steven is very professional, can relate to our son, always available by phone or email, if needed, and after each session, updates us with what material he went over and the progress our son is making.
I am very happy with my results at Above Grade Level! With the help of her tutor, my daughter's confidence and grades soared! I would recommend this service highly.
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.
