Success Stories

There is nothing like a happy client

I’m pretty sure my tutor understands physics better than my actual teacher. Which meant a bad thing was followed by a good thing.”

AP Physics

In the end, what surprised me most was how much fun I had. I don’t really think of literary devices and essay structure as being the most fascinating topics, but my tutor was so funny and interesting. Because of the work we did together, the exam was a piece of cake.

IB English

I felt so intimidated by this test. But my tutor helped me dissect it and organize my thoughts. Really, it felt more like having a teammate than having a tutor. I was so happy when I got a 5. It felt like we’d won the Super Bowl.

AP World History

My tutor was one of the best teachers I’ve ever had. It wasn’t just the test she taught me about, but my own thought patterns and learning style. It’s made a huge difference in the way I approach all tests. I know I couldn’t have gotten my 35 without her!

ACT Prep

My tutor didn’t just “get this test,” she got how to teach it to me in ways that felt so personal and particular to my learning style. Also, she was really fun to work with. It didn’t feel like work at all.

SAT Prep

I knew I’d be successful in business school, but I had no idea how to communicate that. Working with you taught me so much about how to describe my plans and aspirations in a compelling narrative. These skills will serve me well at Wharton, and I’m sure, beyond.

Coming to the States from China, one of my biggest worries was that I would struggle to stand out amongst my peers. But my mentors and tutors helped me see what was special about me and develop those talents to the fullest. I was so thrilled to get into Stanford.
