Unfortunately I was not able to hire Dr Fikar for my LSAT tutoring as he was out of my price range and about a 45 min drive away from my home. However, I could tell from our telephone conversation that he is effective, efficient and confident. I am praying that the person I did hire will help me achieve my required result as I have no doubt in my mind Dr Fikar would have. If money was not an issue, I would have hired him hands down!!
Odyssey Test Prep was by far the best decision I made for getting ready for the LSAT. The tutors this company has on staff are top notch and know what their doing. I came to Odyssey with a 150 LSAT score and my score increased 20 points to a 170 within the time that I worked with them which is something that I wouldn't have been able to do on my own. So if you're looking to increase you're LSAT score go with Odyssey it will be the best move you can make.
I came to Apex with a 45th percentile in the Quant and a tight deadline for improvement imposed by INSEAD. In just 8 days of preparation Apex helped me increase my Quant score all the way to the 70th percentile! I contacted many tutors but Apex stood out with its tailored, bigger picture approach towards the GMAT. Not only did I score what I needed to for INSEAD and LBS, but I feel more confident in myself and my abilities. They might cost more, but Apex is really worth the money!
She was a great SAT/ACT tutor as well as mentor and friend. She helped me incredibly throughout the entire college application process and has since been a voice of reason in major academic decisions! Highly recommend.
Bryan is the best tutor I've ever used for my kids (for SSAT and SAT testing). He is a teacher who really understands the learning process. His ability to teach, target problem areas and explain concepts is outstanding. There was a significant improvement in the pre/post results for both my kids. Beyond standardized testing Bryan's subject knowledge (of many areas) is exceptional. He has patience and a manner that really makes kids want to learn. I attribute my kids' success to this trait, in that there was never any stress involved. I highly recommend his tutoring services.
Dr. Fikar was exactly what my daughter needed. She had done group tutoring sessions with another tutor previously, but did not see much effect. Dr. Fikar has a tried and true method that is rigorous but fair. He is extremely patient and provides excellent explanations. I highly recommend him.
I sent my son to Dr. Fikar as a senior. He was diagnosed with multiple disabilities as a child, and I didn't think that there was any hope for him to go to college. Dr. Fikar worked with him several hours each week for two months, and, while it took several weeks before I began to see the improvement, once it started it continued up until his SAT. He went from a 1250 to a 1560! I couldn't believe the results he was able to achieve. We have worked with many tutors prior to going with Dr. Fikar, and all of them were nice and seemingly capable, but none of them were able to move his score by more than 20 points. I never realized that my son had the potential to get an above average SAT Score, given his disabilities. If you have the money to spend, and you want the best for your child, Dr. Fikar is definitely the way to go! We also plan on using his services for our other son who is not LD, and wants to attend Univ. of Chicago one day!
