I am a senior at American University and first contacted Bill to help me prep for the math portion of the GRE. I experienced a jump of over 10 points on my math portion after working with Bill! Bill is an awesome tutor. He is flexible and quick to respond to changes in my busy schedule. He is also high energy and makes the process exciting! It was apparent during our first lesson that Bill really has a passion for teaching mathematics.

I could not seem to score well on the ACT. I ended up with Arbor Tutors and had a tutor who met me every week for 8 weeks and when I took the test and got an excellent score (33). Worth every cent.

Alex helped my daughter prepare for the SAT when she was a junior. He was great! My daughter is a good student, but has severe test anxiety, especially about whether she will finish on time. Alex taught her test taking strategies to help her answer as many questions as possible and had a calm demeanor that worked wonders for her. She ended up exceeding our goal for her score! Thanks :)

Excellent ACT/SAT tutor I was referred Dr. Reetika by another mom from my sons class. She truly helped shape his career. She helped my son to prepare both for ACT and SAT to identify which works better for him. In the end my son took both the exams and did well on them. There were times that I had difficulty keeping him accountable but Reetika had a good balance of being a tutor and sounding board for my advice. I recommend Reetika to anyone needing help in test prep or honors classes of their kid

Barbara has helped my (now 14)-year old with math for going on three years now. Algebra I, Geometry and preparing for several big exams. She is always ready to help with whatever questions come up for him in his classes, prepare for tests, go back over old material to strengthen knowledge, or just celebrate fun things about math. It takes a very versatile mind to teach this well with the changing needs we bring her from one week to the next. We have really appreciated her ability to jump in to help with a sticky question and even consult on a detail by phone if needed. We highly recommend Barbara for math support.

Jessica and her team at Modern Muse Education are sincere, intelligent, and professional. Their new Gaithersburg facility is wonderful and provides students with a comfortable place to get test help (she even provides snacks!). Jessica and her team are not only extremely patient and educated on the test themselves, but also connect the testing content to public and private school curriculums, customizing a student’s test prep course based on their current grade level and course schedule. The course provides students with everything they need to succeed on the test, as well as how to evaluate their test scores to identify what they need to improve on future tests. I 100% reccomend Modern Muse Education for all students in need of SAT/ACT prep!

Ms. Fraction arrived on time to perform an initial assessment on my 5 yr old for reading and math. During the 45 minute assessment she was able to keep my son engaged and read his body language so that he wouldn't get bored. The next day I received the assessment report with recommendations. Ms. Fraction express interest in receiving feedback from my son's teachers and results from state tests perform to further help my son.

Mrs. Barber tutored my daughter in 6th grade math this past year. My daughter was struggling with math basics. Within the first week her confidence was up and her grades improved. She made the honor roll the last three quarters. Although her math grade has improved overall, Mrs. Barber still tutors her as we prepare for 7th grade and the high school placement test. My daughter adores her. She makes math fun. I highly recommend her. She has changed my daughter's perception of math, at the same time building confidence in herself.

Andrew Sun To whomever this concerns, Before I signed up with this tutoring program, I was not very good academically. In fact, I was the worst in the toolshed. Knowing that I have no time to lose and my bleak future is upon me, I did what many people think it's best; To join the military. I didn't know what to expect of the navy to be honest, so I was unaware of the test you need to take called the asvab. My heart sank a little. I began searching on the Internet, looking for a tutor (especially on math) until I found out about Theo. Theo is the CEO for student circle and unlike other tutors; he is the only one that stood out. He is understanding, ambitious, and kind, but most importantly he can relate to you, creating a special bond which prompts you to succeed. So I explained to him my situation and he set me up with another tutor by the name of Xin. Right off the bat both of us got along and he helped me through two grueling months. There were times when I wanted to give up, but he was there for me. The funny thing is, he is going through an exam as well during my time with him, so he is the hardest working tutor I have ever came across. I swear, these two do actually care about me because when I took the asvab, I scored high enough to achieve some of the most coveted jobs the navy has to offer! These two will forever be part of my family. Student circle has the best sessions as well as memories. Thank you. Andrew

Dale was a great ACT tutor, especially when it came to teaching an international student the ins and outs of the Reading and Writing sections. Since we started working two weeks before the test date, Dale laid out a great strategy of drilling practice tests and helped us find our weak points to review. He had a great base of resources and experience to help us not only with tactics and test taking skills, but how we could apply these study techniques to a broad range of tests and classes.

Dr. Amy helped my 8th grader prepare for the TJHSST & AOS entrance tests. She gradually trained him with the critical reading and writing components and motivated him to get out of his comfort zone and try new techniques and approaches to score higher. I would highly recommend her.

My daughter really enjoyed her first session with Michelle. They worked for two hours in the SAT booklet on the writing. Michelle gave her an assignment to complete the Math pre-test to prepare for their next session. I was pleased after the first meeting.

    My niece took some SAT prep classes with Brendan, and she had a great experience working with him. Not only Brendan was always prepared to teach, but he was very patient with my niece and was able to breakdown each lesson in a way that made it easy for my niece to understand. He is reliable and very professional. I would definitely recommend Brendan to anyone who is looking for SAT prep classes.

    My daughter was recently tutored by Sam for a college pre-cal/trig summer school course. The pace was fast and by the time we called Sam, she was in the fifth of her sixth week. By week 5 her grades were taking a downward spiral as the material was getting more complex. She was teetering on the precipice with a C-. After one intense week of working with Sam she finished with a B. He worked magic. He was patient and and an excellent teacher .I initially worried that he would be "too qualified" to tutor the course, but he was able to explain math to my rising sophomore college daughter, who has always struggled with the subject. He was the best math tutor my daughter has ever had. And a very nice man.

    Mary worked with my son (a sophomore in high school) for nine weeks, and the change in my son's confidence with writing improved significantly. Starting in first grade he developed a dislike for writing, which over the years turning into almost a phobia. He was so intimidated by the process, that he would rather fail than turn in an essay. As a result, he never really learned HOW to write, and his anxiety increased. Mary worked with him, starting with the basics of how to map out and organize a persuasive essay. What took him hours before, he was able to accomplish in less than half an hour. It was very empowering, and helped him considerably with facing writing tasks. One thing that I didn't expect with a writing tutor was Mary's incorporation of subtle life coaching. She had him examine his motivations and his goals. They even did personality testing. I think it was very eye-opening for him to have the chance to look at himself from a different vantage point. Her approach is very supportive and validating. She knows what to ask to make you (both the student and the parent) feel important and interesting. Finally, one of the things I appreciated most as a parent, was that she sent me an email after every session detailing what they had done and explaining her plans for the next session. I can't recommend her highly enough.
