FYI – I was very happy with my son’s writing tutor, Jen M. and your program. I appreciate you taking the time on several occasions to talk with me by phone to give us the best advice and direction for our son.

 

V. worked with Jen on two occasions in May to practice Writing section. On the March SATs, V’s writing score was a 640. He had an overall score of 2130.He wants to apply to Carnegie Melon (CMU) and, therefore, wanted to improve his score in writing.

 

V’s June SAT score was as follows:

Reading: 740

Math: 740

Writing 750 (110 pt gain)

 

His overall SAT score was a 2230 and his super score is a 2280. Ironically, V. did not improve his essay score on the written portion of the test, but rather increased his multiple choice score. Even though his essay score did not improve, I do believe that working with Jen made a difference for him. I think that the sessions with Jen helped V. to feel more confident (a critical factor for my son) in having a better plan/approach in writing the essay. She was an excellent tutor for my son.

 

Thank you so much for everything! I would highly recommend your program. We are happy that V. feels like he has a shot at getting into CMU, of course affording their tuition is a whole other issue! -T.C.

We just received the scores from my daughter M.H.'s SAT test (she took them a second time in June and took the class with you in Mount Hebron in the Fall.). She earned 800 in Critical Reading, 790 in Writing, and 770 in Math!!!! Thank you for the EXCELLENT preparation you provided. She did take the test in December right after the course but I think for her taking the time to review in between to review and taking it again in June really helped her boost her scores (increase of 250 points went from 2110 to 2360)! We know the strategies she learned in your prep class made the difference in preparing her for this test. Thank you again!-R.K.

My teachers at Academic Coaches were nice and very helpful; I felt like I was better prepared for what to expect going into the SAT. Knowing what to look for most often in the writing section and how to write a timed essay helped me move my score up to an 800. My weakest point was math, and my SAT Math teacher (Chris S.) was very helpful at explaining difficult problems in ways I could understand. This was reflected in my score, which was raised to a 600. Becoming more familiar with the SAT in a structured environment like Academic Coaches was ideal for me and I recommend it to anyone considering SAT preparation. Kayla B.

Amanda finished working with Jason last night.  He was absolutely wonderful.  He made the difficult material in chemistry understandable to her and made her more confident about the tests too! Linda H.

I just wanted to let you know that Andrew’s SAT scores came in today. He got a 690 in reading, a 710 in math, and a 730 in writing for a grand total of 2130! I am so grateful that you were able to fit Andrew into your busy schedule. He really felt like all your advice was very helpful and he approached many problems in a different way thanks to your guidance. He even took your advice about writing the essay which seems to have yielded him a higher score as well. Each time you worked with him he felt like the sessions were extremely beneficial and he became more confident in his abilities.

Just to let you know, Scarlett's reading scores improved by 60 points after her session with the tutor.  Very helpful!  I think we're going to schedule another session with the writing tutor before she takes it again. Robin L.

I should tell you and Chris that Amanda received a 5 on her AP AB Calc exam.  
She is so excited as are we.  Thank you both for helping make that possible! Linda H.

I know this is going to sound weird..but I really enjoyed your SAT prep class at my school. It covered EVERYTHING about the test and I feel so much more confident. Seeing and doing lots of problems really helped me understand the weird way that they word them on the test.  Thanks Chris and Beth!

I am an essay writing beast thanks to Beth (the SAT class teacher). I can't wait to see the question they give me on test day! You guys rock!

I have struggled with my grade in math for a long time. During that time period I have received extra help from my teachers and worked with tutors, but I have never been successful at achieving a higher grade.  After my first tutoring session with Chris I received an A on my test. Chris explains the material better than any teacher I have ever had.  I highly recommend him. Thank You, Academic Coaches!! Liz W.

Your SAT class is..well..perfect. It was just the right amount of time and it fit my school schedule perfectly. I looked forward to learning creative ways to solve the test problems and the test taking techniques you taught me have helped in my regular school classes too!

I really liked the energy from the class on the Math days and the relaxed atmosphere on the English days. The Math section also helped me with some of my weak spots in my Algebra 2 class and it is presented in a very clear way. Thanks!

Thank you so much for sending Josh to tutor Jessica. Because of Josh, Jessica went from hating Physics to really being interested and enjoying the subject to the point of considering taking Physics classes in college. I will definitely refer others to you. Kathy H.

Your SAT prep class at my school made me feel silly! I used to think the problems were impossible and I actually cried once when taking a practice test. Then I sat in Chris' class and I don't need tissues anymore! He would put some crazy hard geometry problem on the board and would show us a few simple steps and the problem just fell apart. I went home and did more problems using the tricks he taught and I got problems right that I never would have even tried before.  It also really helped my Algebra skills which I didn't know were not as strong as they should have been for the test. Soooo glad I took your class!

Our son took the SAT three times while enrolled in SAT prep sessions through Kaplan as well as through a high-priced private college guidance counselor and testing consultant. His scores did not see any significant improvement despite this double-barreled approach. At that point, we decided to contact the tutors at Academic Coaches. After only a month of tutoring from Academic Coaches, our son’s scores increased by over 100 points. We firmly believe that the improved SAT scores played a critical role in securing the “thick letter” from his first-choice college, a highly competitive university in the Northeast. We found the tutors at Academic Coaches to be very effective, not to mention reliable, punctual, and courteous. We recommend their services highly. Susan and Steve K.

I want to thank you for all of the help you gave my son Vaughn in Algebra this past year. We have had two previous tutors and neither one of them helped. But Academic Coaches worked! It just seemed to click for him and he ended the school year with a very high B. He actually looked forward to Chris coming which was amazing. Angie N.

Our son has learning disabilities that make taking tests a difficult challenge. Thanks to One-on-One SAT by Academic Coaches his score went up 390 points. Diane C.

After taking the SAT prep tutoring course, my score went up in every section! I set a target score at the beginning of the course, and I got an even higher one! This preparation definitely helped me with my SAT. -Melissa R

Thank you so much for helping Alex. He feels much better about his math class now. We will definitely use your services this fall-Stacy C.

I swear I learn more from Chris in fifteen minutes than I do during an entire class from my teacher!-Travis M

The SAT prep course you guys gave me really took away the test anxiety I had when I took the test the first time. I went into the test ready to solve the problems-not lock up and start guessing!-Tim S.

My SAT score went up 350 points after taking your class. Thanks a lot! -Katie T.
