Excellent communicator and teacher

Ms. Lora G. is an outstanding teacher. The ability to connect with the student is very effective and efficient, applying an ability to identify the areas of focus which must be included in each SAT session. We are very pleased and grateful to have found another outstanding teacher on this platform!

Outstanding, motivating tutor!

Very pleased with the excellent ACT prep tutoring my daughter received. Lora is very qualified, knowledgeable, helpful, patient yet challenging with all aspects of test prep. My daughter learned a great deal from Lora that has also transferred into heightened study skills and higher grades in all her AP classes. Best test prep tutor my daughter has had! I'm confident that my daughter will exceed her own expectations on her upcoming ACT test!

Very knowledgable SAT tutor, Connected with my son at the first meeting, Easygoing but challenging, lovely person

My son has been working with Lora for 3 weeks; at the first session she gave my son quick tips and tricks for taking the SAT, he responded positively and enjoyed the lesson. Each session is building on the previous one, he is using a SAT workbook to practice during the week, then they review his answers together. She is encouraging him to work on the hard problems, helping to build his self confidence with test strategies. We really like her, easy going but challenging, very knowledgable about the SAT and connects to my son, the session flys by.
