Here's what our clients are saying
I reached out to Varsity Tutors for help with a very lofty goal: to improve my GMAT score by 100 points in a very short timeframe. I was paired up with Jonathan, and not only did he help me with the material I was struggling with, but he also helped me gain the confidence I needed to approach this test in the best possible way. I cannot be more proud of the fact that I improved my score by 120 points on test day. Without the help of my tutor and the amazing employees of Varsity Tutors, this improvement would not have been possible.
Varsity Tutors provided a convenient service by assigning tutors we could trust to come to our home. As a parent, I was looking for results in my child's progress each week. Not only did the tutors help my child learn tools to achieve a satisfactory score to be accepted by Bronx Science High School, they contributed to the development of my child's confidence and education for life.
I just wanted to let you know that our son was accepted by the top university on his list this weekend. When I first came across Varsity Tutors on the web, I could never have known what a great experience it would be. I remember the first fact-finding call and the pause when I mentioned that he had already scored 1900 on his SAT but that it would not be enough to get him into his first-choice school. Well, the tutor he was matched with was amazing. Actually, amazing isn't strong enough, he was incredible! Matt was always on-time, prepared, and incredibly motivated and encouraging. Our son wasn't able to take the SAT a second time due to a scheduling conflict, but he did take the ACT twice and his scores were great! He couldn't have done it without Matt and Varsity Tutors. We referred several other friends and family members and they are doing great as well. Thanks!
I just wanted to let you know that my son scored a perfect 2400 on the SAT. Sung was a wonderful tutor; very professional and skilled. I recommend him highly. Thank you for all of your help through this process. I look forward to working with you for the GRE prep for my other son as well.
I can't tell you enough how impressed I am with Varsity Tutors! We came to Varsity with my daughter very upset about her SAT scores - especially Math. Her Math score in June was 490; we just received her scores from the November test and it was 560! After the October test, we had her last session with her tutor the night before and she split the two-hour session into Math for one hour and Reading for the other hour. Her Reading score was 570 in June and October - the score for the November test was 620! Again, I'm so impressed! Thank you so much!
I am extremely impressed with Varsity Tutors. I called to inquire about finding a tutor to help my son prepare for his MCAT. I was extremely impressed by the person who answered the phone. Alicia is very knowledgeable, astute, and so very helpful and accommodating. Since my son was already scoring high on two of the three parts of the practice tests, he needed a tutor who was particularly good at helping with one section. Varsity Tutors scoured the country to find the best tutor for the job, who happened to reside in Texas (we are in New York). My son and this tutor conducted their sessions online and it worked out beautifully. My son thought the tutor was excellent and helped him in some key critical areas.
I have been using Varsity Tutors since my son and I moved to NYC from LA two years ago. I have been uniformly thrilled with the quality of Varsity's tutors - all smart and friendly - and with their ability to pinch hit and get us tutors on the fly when my son needs last minute help with a specific paper or math test. My son is an 11th grader at Poly Prep and his grades, work ethic, and overall skills have all improved dramatically over these past two years. Additionally, as a side note, his past tutors who have moved on to other jobs continue to be in our life. One, for example, is part of a tech start-up in Santa Monica and my son worked as an intern for him last summer. Another has gone on to pursue her Doctorate work but acts as a dog-sitter for us when we go out of town. They are all, in other words, good, trustworthy people. I honestly have nothing negative to say about our experiences with the variety of tutors who have come and gone out of our apartment from Varsity. They are the real deal.
We would like to thank you for a wonderful experience with our tutors, particularly with Daehan and Giancarlo. They were fantastic! Thank you, again, for going the extra mile for us. We are very happy customers!
My tutoring experience was great. My tutor, Justin, was definitely a big help. He helped greatly with strategies on how to approach each question as well as a study schedule to help me prepare for the LSAT. He has a ton of experience that really helps in trusting him. I am very glad I chose Varsity.
Melvin is fantastic! He is down-to-earth, smart, and has been able to help our son learn concepts that he needs to know. Our son has learned so much, and is recovering his confidence. I love that Melvin treats him like an adult. His approach is methodical, and he clearly enjoys teaching. We cannot say enough good words to describe this gem! Thank you for choosing him.
Our tutor, Joisane, managed to take a very stressful challenge for our daughter and turn it into one of the best experiences she has had. They connected immediately, and even on our daughter's worst days, her face would light up when Josiane rang the doorbell. She is now very confident for Saturday's test, and also happy to have made such a good friend in Josiane. We just wanted to let you know - she is an exceptional teacher and a very special person. Thanks again for everything.
I want to take this opportunity to let you know how wonderful my tutor, Patrick, was to work with. I was apprehensive about this whole experience because I have been out of school for so long. I was a little concerned about having someone younger than me tutor me. I didn't know how they would act toward me but Patrick was patient, kind, and understanding. He helped prepare me for the test by building my confidence in the sections of the test I needed most and by giving me confidence about test taking in general. He understood that as a person who has been out of school for sometime that I approached questions differently. He helped me tailor the approach I was using to make it work for the test. He was prompt and professional during our meetings. He is an asset to your organization. If he can help me, he can help anyone!
Christine was a great match to help our son with his TACHS test prep. She helped make test prep fun for him. He was very confident going into his test thanks to Christine. We would absolutely use Varsity Tutors again in the future.
Jay was great with our daughter. Her SAT score went up 100 points! I would highly recommend your services. Thanks again!
Our ACT tutor, Damien was great! My daughter was already accepted into her first choice college. All in all I would absolutely recommend your service as it was a pleasure to work with you and Damien. He was always on time and very professional. Thank You.
I just wanted to let you know that my daughter has made amazing progress on her SAT scores after working with Marlene, our tutor. She went up 250 points - I have not seen my daughter this happy in months. I've listened in on her sessions with Marlene and I am so impressed with her organized, calm - and calming - approach. Marlene has found a way to keep her focused and motivated session after session. Her father and I could not be happier with the work Marlene has done with our daughter. We would recommend her without reservation to anyone who has trouble taking these kinds of exams.
Our daughter just received her SAT score back and raised her score over 500 points from the first time she took the test. The tutors worked around my daughter's very busy schedule. It was so convenient that they came to our house, and they couldn't be nicer or more understanding to our needs. Our experience with Varsity Tutors was awesome.
Prior to using your service, I had tried an independent tutor, and my son informed me not to continue to waste my money. I was thrilled when I stumbled upon Varsity Tutors and was willing to take a chance. I am very glad that I did. I was fortunate to get a fantastic tutor. She was highly professional, organized and more importantly great teaching skills. Additionally, her time management was great. Once my sons’s weaknesses were recognized she knew exactly how to approach the problem areas. My son was not intimidated by her and asked lots of questions. She was always available via e-mail between sessions. My son will be taking his SAT again. I know there are no guarantees , but I feel like I gave him the best possible chance to gain confidence and hopefully raise his scores to the best of his ability. I would highly recommend Varsity Tutors.
I am very pleased with the Varsity Tutors experience. All the tutors we met; Kayla, Kim, and Deahan were exceptional. Thank You. I will most definitely recommend your services!
We are in love with our tutor, Amy. She taught our daughter advanced concepts that were on the National French Exam. We are thrilled with her national placement. Her test grades increased by up to 10 points.
My daughter just completed her last review session with Mike, our tutor. This is it. Tomorrow is her final. Her high school graduation will follow. She is looking forward to NYU this Fall. On behalf of my daughter and my wife, I want to thank you for all that you and your team have done for my family.
I just wanted to let you know that after failing Statistics last fall, my daughter has now passed with a 'C'! This is terrific! It's exactly what she needed in order to continue with her Psychology major. Thank you so much. I really appreciate it. We really found Daniel, our tutor, to be knowledgeable and personable. If she's ever in need of tutoring in the future I'll be sure to give you a call!
I am extremely happy and satisfied with your services. My daughter has gotten her confidence back on track with her problems with science. So absolutely I will continue using your services for my daughter's academic issues.
I wanted to thank you for referring me to my tutor, Daehan. Daehan was amazing and very helpful. I just finished up my last Biostatistics class and did great. The last test I earned a 47/50 (94%). I won't hesitate to use Varsity Tutors again in the future. Thank you so so much for getting me through Biostats!
I just wanted to say thank you so much for all of your help! Sarah, our tutor, just left and was absolutely lovely and my daughter reported after one session that 'she is a million times more helpful than anyone else who has ever helped me!' Your tremendous effort to make this happen so quickly is much appreciated!!! You were wonderful to work with and I feel so blessed that I found Varsity tutors!
Greg, our tutor, is wonderful. He is extremely patient. He pulled my daughter’s grade up to an 'A-'. I can’t say enough good things about him.
John, my tutor, was great. His professional, friendly, and approachable manner made it easy for me to ask him questions (especially in the moments I was a little embarrassed not to know). His tips about how to organize my work on my scrap paper helped me see problem-solving options that I had previously overlooked. He was knowledgeable about the full scope of content and able to break down complex problems into smaller, more digestible tasks. His willingness to be flexible was stellar as we worked to cram six hours of instruction into a very tight window. I really enjoyed working with him and my score was higher than it ever could have been without him.
Caleb, our tutor, met with our daughter today, and the session went really well. She is already feeling much more confident and relaxed about the test.
Russ was a wonderful tutor, very dedicated, and really goes the extra mile for his students.
Our tutor, Amy, has been tutoring my daughter in French for four weeks now. My daughter and I are so happy and satisfied. Amy is such a great teacher... enthusiastic, positive, responsible, caring and so helpful!
Karl was one of the best tutors I have ever had, and I have had experience with 20+ tutors. He tremendously helped me understand the mathematical concepts behind the physics lab, and gave me the tools that I needed to be able to do the lab on my own. He even stayed extra time with me until he was confident that I fully understood the mathematical concepts, and how to do the lab. I would give him an 11 out of 10. That's how helpful he was.
We retained Varsity Tutors to help our daughter prepare for her high school final exams. Varsity Tutors went the extra mile - they inquired about her learning style and her curriculum in order to find qualified tutors who would best suit her needs. The tutors were knowledgeable in the course material and instrumental in helping her do well on her exams. We found Varsity Tutors to be very thorough and result oriented. We highly recommend Varsity Tutors.
