Phenomenal tutor
My son has been using Dr. O primarily to increase his ACT/SAT scores. He gives full credit to Dr. O for raising his SAT scores by 200+ points into the upper 1400's and his ACT up 9 points up to two short of the maximum. Results matter and Dr. O gets results. He has bent over backwards to find times and places for my son to meet him for lessons. His approach is methodical and effective, and has greatly increased my son's advanced math grades at school as well. I spent more money on other "Prep" programs with nothing near the results that were achieved in just the first few lessons with Dr. O. A concerned parent wanting a method of boosting the College Test Scores of their high school students need look NO FURTHER. Dr. O is the best...end of story. He is much in demand because he is well worth the wait and easily justifies his five star rating. ( I would give him 10 stars if they would let me). These results are already reaping rewards as my son has been accepted to almost all of his college choices already. Those to go offer places after the new year. I could go on and on but the point is made. Your search for a tutor is over, set you goals high and Dr. O will get you there. GEM

Very pleased with sessions with Dr. MIchael
My son has had 3 session with Dr. Michael. They have all been very helpful in aiding my son to organize his notes so he can study more efficiently. Dr Michael has also been helpful in boosting my son's confidence in tackling AP STATS. I highly recommend Dr Michael.

Dr. O was knowledgeable and procedural. He's going to help.
Dr. O has a very specific process that seemed to resonate with my son. The 2 hour lesson, which I would have thought to be too long, was time very well spent and my son absolutely found it helpful. He's looking forward to continuing to build his testing skills.

good teacher, goes kinda fast,
Good teacher, we couldn’t get Skype to work correctly but I still understood most of the information he was trying to explain to me. He went kinda fast, but I think he is trying to make your money’s worth. Good teacher really cares about raising scores.

My son left the session asking for another one
My son has been struggling in Geometry all year. After pursuing all available assistance through the school, we realized that it was time to get outside help. My son left his first tutoring session with Dr. Oliff asking me when we could schedule another one. We are thrilled with the guidance our son received. My only regret is that we waited so long to get help.

Extremely helpful in raising test scores
Dr. Michael was instrumental in helping our son go from a 1450 on the PSAT to a 1530 on the SAT and 35 on the ACT. Our son enjoyed working with him on raising his math skills and continues to see him for help on the upcoming math subject test.

Simplifying and making the subject interesting.
So far, my son has only had 1 lesson (more to come) with Dr. Michael so I'm unable at this point to rate our targeted results. However, my son reported that Dr. Michael help to simplify and make algebra interesting. It takes a lot to impress my son on the education front. Dr. Michael is very responsive, cares about what he's doing and welcomes a challenge. We are looking forward to our future lessons with him.
