"Great teacher that helped me reached nearly impossible goals!"
Elliot from Arnaudville, LA
I came to Regan with an extremely low GRE score in June of 2011. In order for me to get in for the fall semester at the school of my choice, I had to take the GRE again in 3.5 weeks. It was also the phasing out of the old GRE, so in 3.5 weeks, the new GRE would start, and the scores would not be reported until the end of the 2011 year. On top of this, I had a very weak background in math in high school, and my verbal scores needed work.
So needless to say, I had a tall task- improve my scores by over 350 points in 3.5 weeks for a student that has some of the lowest math and verbal scores.
What Regan did was incredible. He was patient, kind, great at explanation of all of the material, and kept me on track to ensure that I would meet my goal. There is no question in my mind that no other tutor could have gotten me to my goal. Regan was not a good tutor- but a great one. His expertise in the GRE allowed me to know that I was in good hands. In addition, Regan was patient enough with me and also aggressive enough to ensure that I was fully prepared for the GRE, which I was.
I went into the GRE a second time with much more confidence and fully prepared. I met my goal and I am happy to say that thanks to Regan, I have been accepted into my university. I have already recommended my sister to him, and I would recommend anyone to Regan. There is no question that if you want to meet your goals, Regan is by far the person you want!
"Excellent skills & extensive MCAT knowledge"
Meredith from Colorado Springs, CO
I am working with Regan to prep for the MCAT. At first I was concerned about online tutoring but honestly, I have found it much more conducive to learning than face to face. Regan has got a great system set up to support mastering material and review. He has a deep knowledge of the MCAT - so you don't waste your time studying for subjects that aren't covered while delving deeply into the ones that will be covered. So glad I came across Regan on this site!
"This guy is good!"
Hannah from Denver, CO
The GRE (and any standardized test) is a game, and Regan has taught me how to beat it! I have been out of school for over 3 years so I was really worried about the GRE, especially the writing part because I was never great at writing essays to begin with. I started out so frustrated that I couldn't even finish an essay and after my lessons with Regan, I was able to finish a decent essay in 30 minutes and got the score I wanted. I wanted to take the test again because my math score was not where it needed to be. With Regan's help, my math score ranked 20% higher the second time.
The software Regan works on makes it very convenient so you can work from home. Regan is very straight forward, knows what is important and what is not, and has really helped me out on the GRE. Now he is helping me with my graduate school application essay. This guy knows what he's talking about! Highly recommended!!

If you are looking for GMAT tutor, Regan is definitely your best choice. I took full veritas course, took the test, and was very disappointed with my score - 610. After working with couple different tutors, I finally found Regan. He is really good at explaining verbal problems, and he is a real GMAT expert. I took just couple lessons with Regan, but I learned a lot! He is also a very nice person. I really enjoyed working with him, and yes, I improved my score by 80 points.
"Money well spent. "
Timothy from Midway, GA
Bottom Line Up Front:
- Very easy to work with over the phone or computer. Will adjust his schedule to meet yours.
- Effective tutor who personalizes his teaching method for each student.
- Quick to identify weaknesses and develop a course of action.
- Enables you to study efficiently, focusing your efforts while avoiding wasting study time.
Prior to hiring Regan, I spent 6 months studying for the GMAT on my own. After receiving a less than competitive score I decided to hire a tutor. I wanted a local tutor who I could meet with in person, as I was hesitant to pay someone a lot of money (let's face it these guys are not cheap!) to meet with over the computer. Needless to say the local tutor did not work out and I was left to try the "guy over the computer."
Regan very quickly debunked my initial "tutor theory." He took the time to meet with me, even in odd hours and on weekends. He quickly identified my weaknesses and constructed a course of action to reach my target score. His personal approach and genuine concern created a productive learning environment. If you are worried about Regan's credentials and tutoring methods, ask him on your first session (I did).
Make no mistake studying for the GMAT is a time consuming process which requires focus and discipline. As a military officer I understand the importance of time management, especially for those of you who do not have much study time. Regan does not waste the time you have with him and ensures you "hit the ground running" every session.
Lia from Morris Plains, NJ
I had a month to get ready - and I was borderline freaking out. He was honest with me, patient with me, rearranged anything in his schedule he needed to help me get to where I had to be, and also made the process fun, believe it or not. By the end of the month, I knew exactly what types of things to look for on the test, and exactly how to approach them.
This guy is the best - don't pass him up!
"Want a high score?"
Logan from Carlsbad, CA
Regan killed it for me on the GMAT. After several years of on/off studying on my own (no courses), I was stuck at a 630-640 and was so disappointed, I quit. Finally, with my career about to get crazy with long hours, I decided that I had 6 weeks to take the GMAT, it was now or never.
I already had some knowledge about the format and content, but Regan taught me not just how to solve problems, but how to SCORE HIGHER. He gave me confidence and was very flexible in schedule (like any time day or night). After only 10-12 sessions over 6 weeks (several hour-long sessions per week) and comprehensive homework in between, I scored a 710, 710, 720 in the last 2 weeks before my GMAT.
Regan prepared me for gameday and on my birthday, I scored a 710. The feeling that I had was absolutely insane, I couldn't believe it. I'm not an incredibly smart guy, Regan just taught me how to score higher on the test and great strategies for how the GMAT question makers think and want you to answer. I called him before I called my girlfriend, because all I could think about was where I would be without his simple and easy to understand teaching methods.
Sheneka from Fayetteville, NC
My experience was really GREAT! I learned more in a few weeks working with Regan, that I never learned in a previous LSAT class. He is very knowledgeable and patient and really has heart to see students reach their goals.
Ahmed from Brighton, MA
Regan is a great tutor! highly recommend him. He replies to emails fast, figures out your weak points and works with you along the way to improve them.
"Exceptional Tutor! Brilliant, patient, and affable!"
Sam from Alexandria, VA
After spending countless hours of studying and well over $2 grand of my savings in prep courses and books, I was pretty discouraged with my first GMAT score. I spoke and met with a couple of different tutors on Wyzant, but I could not find someone who could help me meet my goals, especially as Quant was my relative weakness. I found that there were many intelligent math/Quant "whizzes" but few who could articulate the concepts and solve the problems dynamically, which is critical to success on the GMAT. With Regan, you get the best of both worlds. I was initially wary of doing "online" tutoring sessions but after working with him in just one session, my concerns were immediately alleviated. As his profile depicts, Regan is a test-taking genius. More importantly, he's both willing and able to translate the concepts and approaches until you understand them (while keeping things amusing/interesting). It's highly likely he'll tailor the sessions to your custom strengths/weaknesses; I worked with him directly on problems I missed from practice tests, testing/trying different approaches and discussing where I went wrong. This method helped keep my studies focused, dynamic, and relevant. With scheduling, he is a popular/busy man, but extremely flexible as well. Moreover, if you're test is coming up, he's more than willing to make extra time for you. I am continuing to work with him and feel confident I will reach my target scores. If you're hesitant, don't be. Simply email him and setup a trial session!
Tyler from Saint Louis, MO
Regan is by far the best tutor/test prep instructor I have encountered and I have came across several. He always took the time to make sure that I truly understood the concepts and he never failed to have a story to help lighten the mood! I truly do not have enough good things to say about Regan and I highly recommend him for any test prep someone might need. Thanks Regan!!
Tega from Little Rock, AR
My experience with Regan tutoring me for the GMAT was Memorable. I didn't need a very high score to get into my desired MBA program, but my quantitative was rusty. Regan worked with me continuously until I was able to get the material and my required score. His teaching style was exceptional, and his sense of humor made math bearable. His ability to breakdown the material and make it easy to comprehend was great. Days I felt like giving up on the GMAT he was able to encourage me and get me back on track. Regan is an expert at what he does, a couple of days before my exam my practice scores kept on dropping, He was able to identify exactly what was going on with my scores and worked with me to correct them before the test. Overall Regan is an outstanding tutor and a great individual. I highly recommend him to anyone considering taking the GMAT.
Edmund from Falls Church, VA
Regan is a naturally born teacher. I had thought that the online tutorial would not be as effective as face-to-face encounter, but Regan has won my trust. I find him very helpful.
Shelley from Nashville, TN
Outstanding tutor! Regan was an effective and patient tutor for my daughter while she was studying for the MCATs. I highly recommend him for test preparation!
Matt from Fresno, CA
Regan makes the subject entertaining and never fails to introduce a new strategy or technique that will greatly benefit the tutee in each session. Not only is he a great tutor but he is very amiable. Highly recommended!
Nathan from ,
Regan is a very patient tutor who knows what he is doing. He is always prepared for class and has improved my GRE score greatly. Regan's straightforward teaching style is very easy to understand. I highly recommend him!
"The Greatest "
Carolyn from Rockville, MD
I have been working with Reagan for a number of months in preparation for the LSAT and he has been a significant factor in my improvement and my success. He somehow makes the LSAT fun and sessions with him are not only helpful but also relaxing and enjoyable. He is challenging and demands the best from you but these are ultimately the tactics that continuously help you improve. He is expert when it comes to the LSAT and can pin point all the minute mistakes you may be making in order to help you get a better score.
"Scored a 700 with Regan's help."
RJ from Oshkosh, WI
My experience with Regan tutoring me for the GMAT was excellent. I’ve taken the GMAT three times. The first time I took it absolutely cold and scored a 550. Then I signed up for Kaplan’s on Demand class, which I found to be lacking, and scored a 580. After about six weeks of tutoring with Regan I scored a 700 and if I didn’t let the stress of the test get to me I could have scored higher. As a tutor his sense of humor, instructional pace, and ability to make the material easy to digest creates as enjoyable an experience as studying gets. If you put in the effort, Regan can make all the difference in your GMAT score.
Georgia from Atlanta, GA
Regan is knowledge, professional, personable, patient and a excellent communicator. He'd respond to my questions immediately even over text and EVEN at 5:30am! I had some concerns about tutoring with someone over the internet versus face2face but I found this approach very engaging and effective...plus, I was able to be in the comfort of my own home!
Daniel from Birmingham, AL
Regan is an excellant GMAT teacher and someone who works with you step by step until you get it right. Could not ask for a better teacher.
"Buyer Beware of Cancellation Policy"
JD from Kissimmee, FL
Regan C's ability to teach GMAT study methods stands second to none. However, his small business owner practices could end up costing you. Please read his cancellation policy carefully. Regan C. states a 72 hour cancellation policy that he will not budge on. I was able to negotiate with him a lesson, free of charge in lieu of a refund. When I went to reschedule, he stated he didn't have time, he was all booked up. The most frustrating part of the whole process was I felt like he pushed me to confirm and accept an appointment...an appointment that I felt was tentative. I provided him with plenty of cancellation notice (48 hours) however he sited the 72 hour policy. In my opinion that is excessive. I had to get WzyAnt involved to negotiate the free lesson. WyzAnt was very helpful during the process. Please don't misread my review, Regan C. comes highly recommended. Just be firm on when YOU want your tutoring lessons, don't allow him to push you into dates that you consider questionable. 72 HOURS, that's your deadline for cancellation. Almost all other tutors on WyzAnt state no cancellation policy or 24 hours.
Regan replied on 7/29/2011:
Unfortunately JD's version is not remotely accurate. Here are a few corrections that are backed by emails and time stamps.
Correction 1: The cancellation policy is 36 hours, not 72 as JD claims. Its stated clearly on my profile page. Plus, here's the quote from our email conversation. "I understand, unfortunately, there is a 36 hour cancellation policy, so you will be charged for a late cancellation."
Correction 2: JD requested a cancellation the morning of our session, not 48 hours like he claimed.
Correction 3: I offered JD a credit for the cancellation in our first email conversation-He did not have get WyzAnt involved to negotiate as he claims. Again, here's a quote from our email conversation: "Cannot it be credited to my next lesson?" "Yes, we can absolutely apply the cancellation fee to your next lesson. I will consider it a straight credit, so overall it won't cost you anything."
Correction 4: JD implies that I refused to reschedule him. In fact, I offered him a free reschedule on July 5. He did no contact me for 3 weeks. Finally, a day and a half before his exam, he requested a session. He emailed me on Thursday for a session on Friday. I was already booked on Friday, and his exam was Saturday morning.
Correction 5: JD's claim that I pressured him into accepting an appointment time is simply false.
"A great tutor"
Robert from Rocklin, CA
Regan is a great tutor, and was extremely helpful in improving my GMAT score. While I have always been strong in the verbal section, I knew that the quantitative section was a major area of weakness. I had taken the test once previously, and had scored in the 36th percentile on the math section. After only a few weeks with Regan I managed to move my score into the 72nd percentile. Regan really worked hard to identify my areas of weaknesses and eliminate them. I highly recommend Regan to anyone looking to prepare for the GMAT.
