"Amazing!!!!"

- Vicky, Torrance, CA on 10/30/15
Clement replied on 11/1/2015

Thank you very much!!!

"Awesome tutor, no time wasted!"

- Adam, Los Alamitos, CA on 10/5/15
Clement replied on 10/6/2015

Thank you so much for your positive feedback. At the moment, you are my best improved ACT English pupil. Score improvement is the result of a collaborated effort between the tutor and the student. It has been my pleasure to provide you with the elements you needed to become successful on this formidable component of the ACT. It has been my privilege to see you implement those elements to produce a massive score increase.

"Very Informative"

- Brooke, Anaheim, CA on 9/17/15
Clement replied on 9/18/2015

It is my responsibility as a tutor to inform my students of all of their options in the college application process, including their options with regards to standardized examinations. The SAT is a reasoning-based test; whereas, the ACT is a curriculum-based test. This means the SAT looks more like an IQ exam, and the ACT looks more like a typical high school subject exam. Most students do not take the time to evaluate which of these two very different tests is a best fit for them. This is a major decision that should be undertaken early in test preparation. It is not ideal for students to take both examinations, and so care should be taken in this initial phase of test preparation.

"Great Tutor!"

- Jan, Irvine, CA on 9/13/15
Clement replied on 9/17/2015

It was a pleasure to assist your daughter in her preparation for the SAT. I am hopeful the results on the examination will be not only satisfactory but also sufficient in order for her to gain admittance to the college of her choosing.

"Excellent tutor! Very knowledgeable and well prepared."

- Jill, Brea, CA on 8/18/15
Clement replied on 8/21/2015

Thank you very much. Your compliment is very meaningful to me, especially as I have only completed one lesson with your daughter thus far! I will do everything I can to ensure her highest possible score on these two very important standardized examinations.

"Organized & Structured Tutor"

- Nancy, Brea, CA on 8/17/15
Clement replied on 8/21/2015

Organization and structure make for a more efficient and effective lesson. I also believe that the more efficient and effective a lesson, the more enjoyable it is as well - for the teacher and student alike.

"Knowledgeable and patient tutor. My son like Clement's tutoring very much!"

- Wendy, Irvine, CA on 7/29/15
Clement replied on 7/31/2015

Thank you so much for your kind words! It is very good to know indeed that I am impacting my pupils in a positive and effective manner. It is especially good to know indeed that I am doing so in a way that their parents are able to detect and understand.

"Respectful, collected, and offered good advice."

- Grace, Irvine, CA on 7/16/15
Clement replied on 7/18/2015

Thank you very much for your feedback. I only felt it appropriate that I encourage you not to lose hope on law school simply because of the LSAT examination, especially as I am a former law school student myself and also as I have completed the LSAT examination myself. Law school is not for everyone, but you should not let a difficult examination like the LSAT exclude you from law school at the onset. If you need my continued assistance with the GRE on the other hand, however, should you decide to pursue a different path from law school, I will be here to assist you. Thank you very much.

"Great tutor!!"

- Yoko, Placentia, CA on 6/30/15
Clement replied on 7/18/2015

It is the greatest compliment for a tutor to receive that he is the best one from several other tutors! I respond to my professional emails as soon as practicable, and punctuality has always been a quality I have desired to possess. It was my pleasure to help Daisuke gain admittance into the international high school of his choosing. Thank you very much.

"Great tutor!"

- Jamie, Placentia, CA on 6/26/15
Clement replied on 7/18/2015

Business English is very much grounded on a solid grasp of fundamental English grammatical principles. I have done my best to present the fundamentals of English grammar in a way that was most relevant in a business context. It is my hope that I have been able to improve your ability to communicate well and effectively.

"Clement was awesome!"

- Samuel, Villa Park, CA on 6/23/15
Clement replied on 8/16/2015

Private tutoring is a more intimate way to prepare for the college admissions standardized examination than classroom training. I hope that our lessons will be effective and focused on your particular weaknesses on the ACT.

"Well organized and came with a plan!"

- Will, Brea, CA on 6/17/15
Clement replied on 7/18/2015

"Excellent"

- Lucia, Yorba Linda, CA on 7/29/14
Clement replied on 9/24/2014

It is important to know early on which examination, either the SAT or the ACT, is best suited for any given student. The diagnostic SAT and ACT examinations I provide attempt to determine the examination which would most fully demonstrate to college admissions committees the academic aptitude any given student would exhibit in a university context.

- David, Brea, CA on 5/19/14
Clement replied on 9/24/2014
