37 SAT lessons

Time was limited for me due to the deadline of the old SAT and if I had found him earlier, I could have scored higher, but it only took me 3 months to raise 50-100 on my CR section, the hardest SAT section to raise scores. Although the new SAT is coming up, I strongly suggest Daniel as a tutor. He took the SAT in 2004 and never even took the 2005-2015 administration of the SAT but still helped me improve so much in such a short amount of time!

Natasha is a fantabulous SAT tutor. Even though I had attended other SAT prep courses before I started with her, they haven't been helping me much. However, after taking only a few classes with Natasha, I'd knew that I found the right person! She tailors the SAT course according to what best fits each student, and I think that's very important! She's very patient, helpful, and very flexible on scheduling classes.
AnneMarie D.

5 SAT lessons

Our son continued to meet with Guillermo on a weekly basis to prepare for the SAT. After each session, our son continued to progress with his ability to answer questions correctly and, more importantly, he came home feeling more comfortable and confident about taking the SAT. We feel very fortunate that our son had the opportunity to work with Guillermo to prepare for the SAT and we believe that Guillermo is an excellent tutor for the SAT. We highly recommend Guillermo.
