“The quest for college admittance is a process, and finding a test prep tutor is difficult, and maybe the driver between one school and the next.  There is no shortage of teachers, but it is hard to know if you will find the right fit.  Will your child listen, be prepared, and be willing to be guided through the efforts needed to succeed?  Well, my son got lucky.  From the very beginning, Jeff came prepared and committed.  He analyzed my son’s past scores and devised a plan.  His teaching tone was always that of encouragement, and this approach allowed my son to try harder, be prepared for their sessions and actually look forward to working with Jeff.  My son saw results not only in the practice tests, but actual tests.  He trusted Jeff to guide him through the taking of both SAT/ACT: he achieved this with useful test tips and the correct ways to find the answer with skills that Jeff reinforced.  Jeff always followed up with what they worked on and what was achieved, He checked in before and after all tests.  I can say without a doubt that if Jeff had not been my son’s tutor he would have had the confidence nor the learned skills to get excellent scores on both the SAT and ACT.

“Jeff improved my score and I couldn’t have done it without him.”

Jeff helped my son increase his SAT math score by 70 points after he had already taken a prep class from another company. Jeff was able to pinpoint exactly what my son’s weak spots were, and then gave him step by step guidance to make sure he performed well on every portion of the test. Jeff is very professional and was a calming presence amidst the chaos of junior year, and he was a pleasure to work with in our home.”

“Jeff has been a natural fit as a tutor for our son Austen who is currently preparing for the SAT.  Jeff is efficient, yet thorough, when identifying Austen’s skills and deficits and thoughtful when preparing a tailored program of study to meet his needs.  Jeff is energetic and enthusiastic in his approach when reviewing the, often times, dry content.  At the same time, Austen always feels comfortable and engaged when working with him.

Jeff has a true knowledge of the work involved in taking the test, as he recently took the exam himself.  We feel this alone led to an instant trust and validity in Jeff’s ability in the eyes of Austen.

The practice questions, test taking strategies and constant stream of reassurances has inspired confidence in Austen and in his ability to succeed.

Austen has already seen his scores rise in just a few weeks!   We believe Jeff truly has a genuine interest in Austen’s success and works hard to realize this.”

“Jeff is a knowledgeable and committed tutor. He worked closely with my daughter Katie to design a thoughtful, intensive study program customized to her needs — one that took careful account of her abilities and fully leveraged her strengths. Jeff showed extraordinary patience and commitment and gave Katie individualized attention far beyond what we experienced with other tutors. He set realistic goals after listening to Katie’s specific priorities. He followed up with parental feedback after every session and sent Katie notes of positive encouragement on the eve of her tests. Jeff has detailed substantive knowledge of the test and its format, having taken it himself recently. He knows the ins and outs of the test structure and the best approaches to problems to balance time with accuracy. Overall, Jeff is a caring and extremely intelligent teacher, and I strongly recommend his services to students and their parents.
