Here's what our clients are saying
Suzanne was a great tutor the entire way through and I wound up scoring a 720 on my test. I went into tutoring with a goal of 680, but seeing how much I'd come along, I went into the test with a goal of 700. Can't say that I could have asked for much more.
I would like to thank Varsity Tutors for preparing my son for the SAT. Before signing up, I was skeptical, as we had used another SAT preparation service without getting positive results. We worked with Molly to find the tutor best fit for my son's learning style. We ended up using two tutors, both of whom were capable, and just as importantly they were pleasant and connected with my son. They were able to share practical tips for taking the SAT. My son felt prepared and confident after the tutoring sessions. He performed to his satisfaction on the test, and he felt that Varsity Tutors played an important role in his achievement.
Lynne was an amazing tutor and I'll miss her now that our sessions are over! She was really helpful in explaining difficult problems or challenging concepts and made sure I understood the material before moving on to a different topic. I thought it was impossible to improve on reading comprehension but she worked with me until that 'lightbulb' went off. I got the scores I needed on the GRE and I attribute them to Lynne's help!
On behalf of my son, I would like to thank Varsity for having arranged the tutoring for him with the right instructor—Nora. My son's SAT score the second time was greatly improved both in math and essay. It had to do much with Nora’s guidance. We are thankful for Nora’s quality tutoring.
I just wanted to give some feedback about Savanna and my daughter working together. It really has been a great match. Savanna is doing exactly what my daughter needs: a good mix of straight teaching the material, having her work on problems, and confidence building. I couldn't be happier and my daughter earned a B on her last chemistry test. That was a huge confidence builder going into her final exam this Friday. Thanks for matching Savanna with us!
Michelle is great. I have so many issues with math, and some basic foundational issues that have haunted me my whole life in regards to math. She was able to help me with strengthening some of the weaknesses in my learning style. I would recommend Michelle to any other person who needs help like I do. I'm glad Varsity Tutors has such high caliber tutors who have a vast working knowledge of specific subjects like Calculus. Michelle was ultra early, and she even tried to stay later than she needed to. She is very thorough, and I had to make sure that I didn't encroach on her time. Michelle is great. Thank you, Varsity Tutors.
Everything is great – we love Heather. She’s been fantastic! Her teaching style is well suited to my daughter and I love hearing my daughter exclaim 'Oh! Now I get it!' I think your company provides a terrific service and we look forward to your assistance throughout our daughter’s educational journey!
I would like to thank Varsity Tutors and our tutor, Nora, for her work in preparing my daughter for the ACT. Nora was a good match for my daughter who truly benefited from the close attention. As a result, my daughter earned an ACT composite score of 34 and an acceptance to Vassar College this week. I would highly recommend Varsity Tutors for test preparation because of their timely responses and diligence.
As a parent of my daughter who was in a state of panic before her first SAT, not knowing where or how to begin studying adequately and having only 15 days until the day of the exam, I quickly looked up options that could work for her - Varsity Tutors was the right and perfect choice. I saw my daughter relax and focus on how and what to study under the guidance of the tutor sent by you. Your understanding of her needs and the flexibility of the home tutoring really made a great difference. She was able to profit to the most in the very little time she had to study. The SAT was last week and my daughter performed to her satisfaction, feeling happy and confident. We hope the results are just as positive. My daughter knows how to study and go about the SAT thanks to the wonderful and professional tutoring provided by Varsity Tutors; Marin was an excellent tutor for my daughter and even checked on her by phone before and after the SAT. Thank you very, very much and we are very happy to have chosen you.
I wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how valuable my experience was with Tom. Having worked with several previous tutors and test prep companies, he was by far the best tutor that I have ever worked with - bar none. I would highly recommend him to any applicant that wants someone with real world experience to tutor them. Tom was adept and flexible in ways that none of my previous tutors were. He identified strategies for my particular skill level for each section that helped me reach the level of performance that I aspired to in my quest to be admitted to a T14 school. Simply put, Tom is the best! I would have paid double the rate if I had known in advance just how talented, wise, and adept he is at helping people like me succeed. Thanks again for connecting me with Tom. He was a perfect fit - a gentleman and scholar.
Everything has been fabulous with Tommy. He is an amazing tutor who got me a 14% increase in between two tests. He has great energy and is very good at keeping me focused. I am sad that our hours are dwindling down, but he has taught me a lot of great studying techniques. He is very accommodating to my schedule. Thank you for making such a great match for me! Make sure he keeps tutoring because any student would be lucky to have him as a tutor!
You did a wonderful job picking out Emily for help on the SAT and Brittany for help with the college essays. Having the right tutors, ones that were a "good fit" for my daughter, made a huge difference in my daughter's comfort and ability to work hard to improve her scores and essays! Having Emily's help to prepare for the SAT and Brittany's help with writing the college essays also really reduced the stress my daughter was feeling. While I wanted her to get help to improve her test scores and essays, I also really wanted to try to find a way to relieve the stress she was experiencing. Having a Varsity Tutor work with my daughter was a tremendous help in reducing her stress! It was such a positive experience for her! I can't thank you enough for everything!
Varsity Tutors matched my daughter with Nora for ACT practice and Nora was extremely helpful with all subjects on this test. She gave my daughter many good strategies for the Math section and the Reading section as well. She was very patient and really tailored the tutoring to the areas of most need. My daughter's ACT score went up considerably and we were very happy with the result!
I truly enjoyed having Michael as my tutor. He was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, affable, and just a great tutor. I would recommend him to anyone with LSAT needs. Hopefully my scores have improved on my test, but it was still a joy working with him. My overall experience was great. Everyone was very professional, prompt, and sensitive to my needs and preferences.
We received the ISEE results in the mail today. Our son's scores were very good! We think the preparation really helped him and sent a note to the tutor today to let her know. Thanks again for finding a tutor for us on such short notice. And such an extremely good one at that!
My tutor Aimee and I started off strong on Verbal Reasoning tutoring mainly because she inquired beforehand the things that exactly troubled me. Previously I had thought that the Verbal Reasoning section required more of an intrinsic gift, but Aimee taught me that Verbal Reasoning could be accomplished by some of her amazing techniques she taught me. I began to see my results after the first session and my understanding of Verbal Reasoning in full became enhanced. Honestly, Aimee vaulted my expectations by a long shot. I would recommend her to anyone, she deserves to improve many other people's scores!
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.
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.
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.
