Andrei also gave her great tips on working faster and more efficiently. This helped tremendously on the exams. Andrei tutored her for three months for the SAT Math, she took the exam once and scored a 780 on the math. He then tutored her for a month for the SAT 2 math, she scored an 800 on that exam. We are very grateful to Andrei, for helping her achieve this. I would recommend Andrei very highly, his patience and dedication is outstanding! Thanks Andrei!
As promised, I am updating my review with the results: SAT Math score improved 80 points! Due to overall help with test strategy, even Reading score improved 20 points. Keep in mind that this is a student with learning differences, especially in the area of Math. Not any tutor will do in this case. Donna connected well with my student and helped him to see that he knew more than he gave himself credit for. He felt no anxiety when he took the test after working with Donna, which is no small feat.
He invested the time needed, was very patient, always encouraging, extremely knowledgeable, and he really spoke my son’s language. I was especially struck by how Mr. M. taught so that my son understood fully. He was comfortable letting a question hang in the air while my son processed the answer--waiting for that light to go on. Listening from the other room, I could hear them both then get excited at those ‘ah ha’ moments from the kitchen table each week--so encouraging!
