Jeff was working with my son on getting ready for ACT this year. My son is a junior at high school. He is a good student, however, wasn't satisfied with his initial ACT score. We found Jeff through Thumbtack based on customer reviews. I'm glad we did. After several lessons with Jeff, my son's ACT score went 5 points up. Jeff is great about building lessons around subjects and topics that require more attention. The test taking strategies that he teaches are definitely very helpful. Jeff is very punctual and responsible. He was willing to accommodate my son's busy schedule. I highly recommend Jeff to students (and parents) who are looking for help with ACT and SAT.
Thomas is a well prepared, intelligent, and personable tutor. He was able to quickly establish rapport with my daughter and dive into the challenging aspects of the ACT prep.
I cannot say enough good things about working with Christina Craig. My daughter has top grades but can’t do well on a standardized test to save her life. That complication made her acceptance prospect tricky at some schools, but Christina helped us cut through all the college stress. She helped my daughter explore future colleges, some of which hadn’t even been on our radar screen, guided her through the essay part of the application process (resulting in an essay that really reflected my daughter’s unique personality) and, most important, set tasks and deadlines stepping her through the application process in a structured, but stress-free basis. When other kids were rushing and freaked out over looming submission dates, my daughter was confident that she had put her best foot forward weeks earlier. I truly got to cheer from the sidelines as Christina took on the coaching role, meaning I was spared the job of task-master parent. And My daughter felt supported by Christina in what can seem like an overwhelming process. Working with Christina is an investment with true value.
Guy truly cared about helping my son achieve his full potential on the ACT test. Highly recommend! He is very knowledgeable in tutoring and test preparation!
Tim did a great job with my daughter preparing for the ACT. He helped with strategies for the test as well as with getting in the proper frame of mind for preparing and taking the test. He is very flexible with scheduling and extremely responsive. With his excellent coaching, she raised her score from 31 to 34. He is a fantastic tutor.
Souradip is a tutor, par excellence! We're grateful to Thumbtack for bringing him into our lives. He's responsive to our children's needs. He's great at explaining and uses various techniques to make sure that they understand the material. Souradip's infinitely patient and never makes them feel less than or embarrassed to ask questions. The children look forward to working with him (now that's a litmus test for a tutor who's doing something right!). They would rather work with him than see a movie! We sought tutoring because our children were struggling and in a matter of a couple of months they're "A" students. That's a testimonial to the caliber of tutor that he is!
English tutoring was excellent went beyond our expectations and provided lots of learning materials and testing materials for ACT. Made my son comfortable with tutoring, who usually has a difficult time with it.
Steve did an outstanding job preparing our son for the ACT. After 5 weeks of test prep with just Steve, our son raised his score 7 points to a 33. Steve knew exactly the approach to take by teaching our son strategies and methods to the exam. Steve is prompt, responsive and always goes more than the extra mile. Thank you Steve!
Hands down the best LSAT tutors ever! I worked with David and Hana. They knew how to turn a rather dry test into a fun and personable event. My score jumped from a 157 to a 170!!! Enough said, no?
My tutor was Renjie Abraham. He was very organized and methodical in the way gen taught. His teaching was easy to understand and very helpful. He was really easy going and a great tutor! I would recommend him to anyone looking to improve their test scores!
Both of our children attended their clinic, and we are very pleased with the results. Our daughter is much more prepared for high school, especially relative to the standardized tests, and our son needed the extra focus while in grammar school. We are very appreciative.
Mr. Patel was an excellent teacher! He was very clear and explained the topics I needed help in. I learned what I did in a semester in a few classes with him and I understood so much better. He's a really good teacher.
Tom has been an AMAZING help to our daughter. Although a strong student, she wasn't connecting with the style of her Pre-Calc I & II teacher; as a result, she began the semester with quiz scores ranging from 40-60%. Tom swept in to save the day! Through his patient ways and clear explanations, our daughter's grade immediately improved. She is now consistently scoring 90% and above on quizzes and tests. We cannot thank Tom enough for his continued support of our daughter's education, and the confidence he has instilled within her.
Mr.Acharya is a genius math teacher and I am very much impressed with his style of teaching which helps students to achieve good grades in tests. Thank you!
I could not have been happier with the results from using More Than S.A.T. in preparation for the ACT. While my older children had used other prep courses for the ACT with satisfactory results, I decided to make a change for my youngest child. More Than S.A.T. had a more unique approach to studying for the ACT. More Than S.A.T’s academic coach was able to tailor a study program specific to my son’s strengths and weaknesses. What’s more, the consultant’s suggestions as to how to manage the test, while taking it, were very beneficial. The result: a 6 point increase. Thank you, More Than S.A.T.!
Michelle worked with my 4 year old so to prep him for kindergarten due to him not being in preschool. He enjoyed her company, and she was a pleasure to have. I highly recommend her.
Mr. K's math camp was a wonderful addition to the Price Hill and surrounding communities as well as Price Hill Recreation Center, where the program was conducted. He produced amazing results with some of our most challenging kids. Mr. K combined Montessori, holistic theory and common sense to help focus kids so they could learn and bring up test results. As both parents and kids enthusiastically embraced this program, it was always well attended. The only downside was, the program had to end due to a loss of funding. We certainly miss the Math Camp as it excellently served our littlest citizens in a comprehensive and very caring way.
I have prepared over 300 students for the ACT Test and my strategies have been published in an ACT Preparation book. The sessions will be tailored to the student's own learning style and are upbeat and fun. We work with actual questions from recent ACT tests, using the questions as a base to learn strategy, tricks, and academic concepts. Give me a call for more information. Thanks!
1. One-on-one attention 2. I teach from your perspective 3. No question is "stupid" or too easy or too difficult 4. I won't move on until you understand
