I was a little skeptical at first because I had never used thumbtack before but Arbor is legit. I I ended up using their services for essay writing for college applications and I ended up getting into all of my top five choices as well! It was money very well spent. You won't be disappointed!
Oliver was a great help to my daughter reviewing the math section for the ACT and SAT's. Her SAT score increased by 130 points! We were are so pleased, that I have already asked Oliver to tutor my younger daughter with pre-calc and SAT prep in the Fall....Thanks Oliver!!!
I hired Lisa to tutor my daughter for her SAT prep. Her scores went up significantly and her writing component was very high. Lisa is an expert, educated and a great mentor.
My Son has an IEP and Michael worked with him to prep for the ACT. We met ahead of time, reviewed my sons strengths and weaknesses and Michael set up a study plan for him. My son enjoyed the study sessions and practiced between meetings, I was impressed how well my son responded, homework is not one of his favorites. I was also given weekly progress updates. My son completed the exam and was comfortable because he was well prepared by Michael, I highly recommend him, he worked well with my son and showed interest in his success.
I would be very happy to provide a reference for Roy. I highly recommend him. My daughter started tutoring with Roy in the 9th grade and continued with him the next two years (10th & 11th grades). When she started she was taking the accelerated Math class and was having some troubles with her teacher's style of teaching. Roy was able to fill in the gaps for her and give her the confidence (and knowledge) to succeed in the class. In the first reporting period after she started tutoring with Roy, she brought her grade up from a B- to a B+. That may not seem like a big jump but she was in a very competitive class and the teacher was a hard grader, so she was thrilled. After 9th grade, she continued to have the same teacher for the next two years and she also made it onto the Math Team (which the same teacher also led). Although she had by now gotten used to her teacher's way of teaching, Roy was extremely helpful in explaining some of the concepts more thoroughly and helping her when she was stuck with homework problems. He also helped her prepare for quizzes and major tests as well as the more complex math problems she had to face when competing on the math team. Roy was always patient and explained things to my daughter in a way she could understand. He also gave her different ways of thinking about solving a problem that she wasn't getting in class. I asked her about the types of math she studied with Roy and it sounds like it ranged from topics in algebra (mass points, bases, etc.), trigonometry, and calculus. He sometimes used proofs to explain concepts to her. I doubt if there would be any math topic that he couldn't teach, however. He also suggested extra things for her to consider or learn and posed more challenging problems - she called them "enrichment problems." He not only was interested in helping her stay on top of her coursework, he was also trying to stretch her abilities. I think this really paid off for her - not only did she continue to do well in class, but she also got a perfect score on the SAT Math II Subject Test. Hope you don't mind the long-winded review, but I wanted to show how important Roy's tutoring was to my daughter's success in math over the last 3 years. We usually met with him once a week during the school year and I believe his help really made a big impact on my daughter's ability. She also progressed from being insecure about her math abilities to feeling confident enough to tutor new math team members. In her words, she appreciated having a low pressure environment to learn math - a place where she wasn't been graded or judged, but just getting the personalized coaching she needed. She hasn't had to see him on a regular basis this year (she's taking AP Calculus) but will be using him to prep before big tests. PS - I should also mention that Roy is a very nice person as well.
This program is exactly what I would have needed when I took the GMAT. The challenge with the GMAT is its adaptivity to your skill level. Therefore, a traditional prep book from the library or bookstore will inadequately prepare advanced test takers with enough difficult questions to be ready for the test. The customization of this program is perfect for the design of the GMAT. And the guarantee from PrepScholar is pretty impressive. No-brainer for anyone serious about applying to business school!
First of all, if I could give Prepscholar 6 stars, I would. I've had a really rough start. Unlike most high schoolers, I didn't exactly know much about the SAT until it was almost too late. I live in Indonesia, and so the SAT isn't exactly as popular as it is in the States. My mom then took me to a SAT prep centre which was actually quite famous back home. I took a diagnostic test there and scored a 1740. Now, even though it was only a diagnostic test, I couldn't have fared better than an 1800 on the real SAT. I took two lessons with that prep centre and I could not be more disappointed. The teacher basically reread the book to us. I wasn't learning from them. It was a waste of time and money. I didn't need someone to tell me why B was the correct answer to the question. I needed someone to tell me why I got the question wrong so I could avoid making the same mistake again. I found Prepscholar truly by accident. After reading Allen Cheng's post on how to get a perfect score, I knew that Prepscholar might help me boost my score. I intend to go to highly selective schools, therefore I need a good SAT score. However, I had my doubts: it sounded too good to be true. Well, after contacting Fred Zhang, who was very helpful and knowledgable, I realized that Prepscholar is really, with all honesty, THAT good. I am not exaggerating at all when I tell you that Prepscholar is the perfect program for all of you wanting to boost your scores, like I did. With only about a month to prepare for the June SAT, I started using Prepscholar and started my tutoring sessions. My tutor, David, was really kind, and he read into my thought process and told me what I was doing wrong. Instead of just telling me the correct answers to the questions, he explained to me why I got them wrong and how I could avoid making the same mistakes next time. I improved a lot, and I found myself making fewer mistakes every time I practiced. I started out making up to 12 mistakes per section, and now I averaged at about 3 mistakes per section and sometimes I even got an entire section correct. The program itself has extremely insightful lessons and their quizzes represent questions that actually come out quite often on the real SAT. The program also tells me my skill levels, which skills I have problems in, and therefore I can review those particular skills and improve. I just received my scores, and I scored a total of 2050, with 730 for math, 650 for critical reading, and 670 for writing. This is a huge jump from my original scores of 690 for math, 520 for critical reading, and 530 for writing. I couldn't be happier. The best part is, I am very positive that I can improve even more. I will still be learning from Prepscholar and I am sure that by November, I will master the SAT even more. I must emphasize that without Prepscholar's help, I would never have passed 2000. I doubt I would even get a 1900. Prepscholar is probably the only program that really works. My score jumped 310 points, in only 1 month. For all of you who are looking for a way to boost your scores, your search is over. There is probably no better program out there than Prepscholar. So, if you're still doubting, please stop. Prepscholar is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I am sure it will be to you too.
He is AWESOME!!!!! I would highly recommend. I was in an accelerated math class, with little math knowledge and he made is easy to understand and follow. Great tutor!!!
Lisa is one of the best writing tutors that I have ever had. She is smart, kind, and believes in every single one of her students. I first started working with Lisa to prep for the ACT. She always believed in me and encouraged me to keep working towards my goals. After getting through the ACT, Lisa helped me with my college application and supplemental essays. She helped me to get my vision into solidified and ideas. She has a hyper focus on making sure that her students voice is heard. Her respect and confidence in me is what made me believe in myself and my work.
Heather was able to quickly assess my daughters needs to prep for her exam. She did an amazing job working with her. We were very pleased with her services.
we highly recommend Anthony to tutor your child their college prep needs. he is very knowledgeable with SAT OR ACT and college application process.
I signed up with Cambridge Tutoring last winter when I was preparing for my GMATs. Working with Karthic saved me a ton of time as he was able to help me break down my studying into more organized sections. I stopped spending hours reading test prep books and instead spent a fraction of that time working through problem sets with him that addressed my individual needs as a student. I'd highly recommend Cambridge Tutoring to anyone that wants to accelerate/improve their preparation for the GMAT.
My daughter found Carissa very helpful for SAT prep. She used her 4 times and found the time well spent.
Gold Test Prep not only strengthened my skills but my confidence in test taking. They made preparing for the GMAT manageable and convenient. I have a job so the option to study with a tutor at a library or via Skype was a huge plus. My tutor was encouraging, helping me to set realistic goals and reach them within a limited time period. I saw considerable growth with my GMAT score from the practice exams to the extent that I only needed to take the test once. Can't thank Gold Test Prep enough, at the end of the day they produce results.
Angela worked with me, helped me select colleges, wrote drafts of essays and prepped me for college interviews - and then she helped me with nursing school! When I had my first interviews, I was confident and ready - we had done role plays many times! I really enjoyed her calm nature and her reassuring ways. She set a realistic timeframe for me, and was always accessible by phone or email. As a first generation college student, my parents were really worried, but Angela made the whole process much easier and so much less stressful. She is detail oriented, and relates so well to what kids and their families are going through. Working with her was great - and I definitely recommend her!
Great help with my sat prep. Very knowledgeable and will see results.
Olya is truly a miracle teacher! In just 10 lessons with Olya, I was able to improve my GMAT score by 150 points! I highly recommend Olya to anyone who wants to have a chance to study at a top MBA program.
