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.
