Daniel C. (Wellesley, MA)

“I wanted to drop you a note to thank you for all your work with our son during the recent months in preparation for the ISEE.   He felt good about the test—there were certainly some difficult patches, but he weathered it all and he said he completed all of the sections in time (a fact that alone suggests that he made some good progress over recent months) and he thought he did pretty well.  There is little doubt in our mind that your work with him was of great assistance to him both in terms of fundamentals—as you know, he has not yet studied at school much of the mathematics that was on the test, so your work with him gave him a fighting chance on a lot of that material—and in terms of boosting his personal confidence.  Hopefully, he does well—but we of course shall see.   Thanks very much for all your help.”

“Our SAT/ACT tutor was an outstanding teacher and a very pleasant and kind person. She worked well with our son, and the sessions were very productive. The overall experience was far superior to our experience with a company we contracted with for our older daughter.”
