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.
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!
Our son has been working with Carol for over 6 months preparing for the ACT test and also receiving subject-area tutoring in geometry, English/Reading and Earth Science. Carol is very professional, extremely smart, wonderful to work with and has demonstrated her ability to work effectively with secondary students at all skill levels, including those with special needs and current IEPs. Carol has helped our son prepare for the ACT in all subjects and provided detailed strategies, not only for test preparation, but for each element of the exam. She uses teaching, demonstration, practice and testing as an intertwined process that has really benefitted our son. Last semester, he earned a 4.0 for the first time and made the National Honor Society. Carol also is wonderful with homework, projects, and writing assignments. Her background in education is AMAZING. She not only has multiple degrees and certifications, but has an extremely high IQ, and has extensive knowledge of both high school and college curricula. We highly recommend Carol, and urge others to utilize her expertise, experience and her wonderful personality with kids for all your family's tutoring and testing needs.

Rami is really friendly and helped me with studying for the ACT. It was a good experience overall
Renjie is patient & encouraging. Great personality, and a perfect match for my kids. He helped increase both of their ACT scores, which also carried over into improving their GPAs. He is also very dedicated, working around busy high schoolers schedules. Renjie also tutored my 7th Grader in Math. She was struggling half way through the year, and after a few sessions with him, there was a huge improvement. Her teacher commented on her progress and her grades increased dramatically. She continued to work with him throughout the school year and looked forward to her sessions, as he calmed any anxiety she had before tests and with tough homework.
Our daughter had taken the ACT four times, but was not achieving the scores she wanted (and needed) to get into her first choice school: The Kelley School of Business at Indiana University. This happened even though we had spent a few thousand dollars with a local tutoring company (Oxford) over that past year. Then a recommendation from a friend sent us to Laura George and we had her start meeting with our daughter immediately. Over the next month, they met 4-5 times. Then our daughter took the ACT test once more. She absolutely nailed the test, improving her composite score 3 points over her best previous score. In fact, she significantly improved scores in all categories of the test. After the test, Laura then helped our daughter polish up her college essays. The end result: our daughter was directly admitted to the IU Kelley School of Business as a freshman. We could not be more thankful for the services and guidance of Laura George. We only wish we had gone to Laura from the start. We highly recommend Laura to anyone wanting to improve test scores or polish up essays or applications. She is the best!!
My daughter received excellent score of 780(scale of 800) on New SAT-Math thanks to Mr. Patel's expertise. Her previous score was 610. We were struggling to find the teacher for New SAT. She is not fond of word problems and gets frustrated. But Mr. Patel was able to make concepts much simpler and easier to understand. We also signed up for his College Consulting Service, where his team of professional coaches work with us one on one at a fraction of the cost. We are very satisfied and definitely refer Mr. Patel to my friends and family. Thanks Mr. Patel for your support.
Julia tutored my son for about five years. We were very impressed by his improvement in math shortly after he became her student. Julia's tutoring not only helped him to excel in math inside the class, but it also helped him to excel in standardized tests such as SAT and ACT. I strongly recommend Julia not only for students who need help, but also for those who are doing good but still want to perform to the best to their potential.
Charlie helped me understand each section of the ACT, and how to take it apart and work on it, so that I figured out what I needed to do. He taught me strategies, and new ways of looking at problems, but most of all he gave me the confidence to know I could walk into this long and exhausting test and break it all down into manageable parts. I stopped being scared of it. He even told me to eat a big breakfast, and take snacks, and it made a huge difference! (My score improved by 8 points!)
Highest recommendation! Sarah has worked with two of my boys on ACT/SAT prep and they both benefited greatly. She helped them build skills and confidence, which resulted in improved scores. Sarah is smart, creative, positive and very experienced; we also appreciated her willingness to work around busy schedules.
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.!
Brittany is a wonderful teacher! I have been very impressed with her dedication, caring and knowledge. Any child would benefit from having her as an educator and an advocate.
We offer our ACT Prep Program, which includes 10 hours of prep in reading/English and 10 in math/science. Plus, the students can work on writing too. Our schedule is very flexible. We offer the students a free mock ACT practice test, so we can pinpoint strengths and needs. After we correct and score the practice test, we will share the results. The student might want to schedule some hours to go over just the errors. This has helped many students just to see where they made mistakes. The students can take part of the program too -- maybe just math and usage.

I design the program around the student's needs. I also work with only one student at a time verses a classroom or three students at a table like many other companies do. We stay away from the one-fits all approach and focus on each student at one time!
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!
