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

Easy to work with, knowledgeable and patient
Helped my son gain the confidence and comfort with the material that he was missing. We don’t have his score yet but he felt much better about this SAT than he did on his previous attempts.

Patient and Kind
Dr. O worked well with my daughter, he made both of us comfortable as soon as we met him. He related well with both of us and seemed to genuinely care about my daughter's progress and success. I enjoyed speaking with him. We've only had one session so far so it's hard to determine the impact the session had on her pre-calculus work, but we intend on scheduling SAT and ACT prep with Dr. Oliff in the future.

Patient and knowledgeable
My son struggles in math and gets very frustrated during his lessons at school and home. He was extremely nervous about his first sessions with Dr. O. When I picked him up he was all smiles and said it was fun!

Knows his stuff!
Dr. Michael is an effective tutor. I have never been a super math student, but Dr. Michael makes it so much easier to understand. He taught me effective ways of factoring and polynomial usage. I will see him again for sure.

If you want to reach your goals Dr. Mickael O is the real deal. He knows how to focus in on the subject and develop you in the area you need the most help. What a blessing to see a person like this giving back to the younger generation. Proven results!

Patient tutor, helps break down problem in simple steps
Dr. Michael went over some of the practice ASVAB questions. He was patient with explains the problem and how to solve the equation by steps. I enjoyed my lesson today,when I left it actually went over some of the fractions and arithmetic problems on another practice test at home, an I was able to understand the question and solve it on my own.

AP Geometry
My daughter came away from her session all smiles! She said she had never learned so much about Math in all of her life. She said he explained it so well that it made sense and seemed easy to her. I have never seen her so happy and confident going in to any Math test, especially an AP Geometry one.
