Test Prep Services
Michael was really great and positive with my daughter during her lessons. He always followed up with a voicemail going over the session. He gave his impression of where she was, in terms of learning, and confidence in what she had learned. He was able to accommodate her crazy schedule and give her the time she needed. I highly recommend him for anyone struggling with schoolwork or needing a refresher for the ACT. PatriceFeb 7, 2020Verified
I’ve liked the interaction between my daughter and Michael. After Winter recess we will move forward with the program, but so far it’s going good.Dec 17, 2019Verified
Test Prep Services
I worked with Michael for a few weeks for help with ACT English and Reading. His approach to prep was very helpful since I was able to go through every question that I got wrong and got feedback on what I had to differently next time to make sure I wouldn't make the same mistake. In addition, it was helpful to hear the different strategies that Michael suggested and try them out to see what worked better for me, especially for the reading section since that was usually a time crunch. In the writing section, I think it helped that we really broke down why each of the different answer choices were wrong and what they were testing for in each question. Overall, I think it was very helpful and definitely helped me become accustomed to the content and format of the test! Thanks for all your help!Jul 30, 2019Verified
Michael's program is great. All the other people just wanted to tutor or sit down and do homework with him but what my son needs is to learn how to study on his own, which Michael's service teaches him how to do. Thanks!May 5, 2017Verified
Michael did an excellent job of evaluating my daughter's needs and referred us to good tutors, including himself. My daughter is receiving the help she so needs.Nov 10, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Our monthly support program starts at $135 per month with a $50 setup fee, which covers loading student information into our system and setting up our services for daily academic and parental oversight support. Tutoring sessions can be included in our monthly support program for $25-$50 per hour. Our direct tutoring program starts at $40 / hour for video-conference tutoring. In-person tutoring costs $65-$80 per hour depending on travel requirements for our tutors. We only tutor in-person in the DC Metro area. We offer discounts for regularly scheduled tutoring sessions.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?To get started, I will want to speak to a parent by phone in order to identify your student's needs. We will then arrange a no-obligations, free consultation with both parent/s and student in order to provide feedback and make sure our program is correct for both student and parent/s.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?We use the latest technologies, we monitor education developments, and we are always learning from child psychology and behavioral motivation fields. Above all, our teachers put themselves into a state of constant professional and personal improvement that they apply to our students. We are especially interested in helping students who face executive function (organization, time management) challenges, ADHD and procrastination.
