Trevor works with two of our children on test prep. They each have very different learning styles and approaches to their work. He is fabulous with both. He has a clear philosophy and methods which he crisply articulates. This is very helpful to me as a parent and to my children.
He sets high expectations yet at same time is very positive and sees where each student comes from. His communication skills are unbelievable. He can explain the thinking behind any reading, grammar, or math problem. So he both coaches and teaches. Trevor inspired such a high level of confidence in my daughter that she wasn't the slightest bit nervous entering the testing room. His coaching and methods get results, i.e., hundreds of points of improvement. I would recommend him to anyone and well beyond test prep. We communicate mostly via email and I receive quick responses.

Trevor tutored my 16 year old son for the SATs. His two hours were very challenging and my son received excellent instruction from him. His scores improved to 2100 combined on his first SAT as a junior. He is continuing to have sessions with Trevor and the ability to schedule individual hours is incredibly helpful, as my son is so busy that he could never have attended a weekly structured class. Trevor is much a sought after tutor, so schedule well ahead!
Update: My son took the SATs a second time and got his score up to 2190 (superscored.) We felt he had worked hard enough. When fall came around, my son applied Early Action to his dream school, MIT, and was admitted!!! There are so many parts to getting accepted but having the right SATs is important, and we owe many thanks to Trevor H!

Trevor is an excellent coach. He exhibits great patience with my daughter, challenges her appropriately and holds her accountable to her work.
"The best tutor she's had so far"

Trevor is intelligent and dedicated, and he knows how to figure out what a student needs. He has the right mix of encouragement and challenge (he's not afraid to call out a student on what she should already know); his explanations are crisp and clear, and he is the kind of teacher that kids don't want to let down. I am delighted that he is tutoring my daughter.

Trevor helped me break down sections on the SAT to a far more comprehensible level, providing me with SAT strategies, tips, and lessons. He has already helped me, with just this one lesson, a great deal on the reading and math sections, and we plan to dig deeper into these sections and the writing section as well. Trevor is fun, intelligent, nice, and funny. He will definitely help you to achieve your academic goals, whatever they may be. Looking forward to more lessons with him.

This is the first time I had ever used Wyzant. It was easy to find a tutor and offered convenient payment options. I was looking for a tutor for my daughter to prep her for the SSAT exam. We chose Trevor because he lived in the vicinity, and he was awesome! He was patient with my daughter, knew the material, and taught her invaluable test-taking tips. Due to personal decisions, my daughter chose to forego the SSAT and concentrate on the TACHS exam instead. After a few sessions covering SSAT material, Trevor easily transitioned my daughter into TACHS material. When it came to test day, my daughter felt confident and well prepared. We would use Trevor again in the future for tutoring.
