    The Professor's tutoring program really helped me do better with my writing and preparing for taking the SAT. We did both in-person and online sessions. Every session I felt like I learned a lot. His team is great. Shout out to Michelle also!

    Jim helped me with Science, English, and my History classes. I actually improved my grade because of him. He helps me “get” the topic rather just makes me memorize stuff. Best tutor I’ve ever worked with. And, I’ve worked with a lot!

    The Professor was awesome. He helped me increase my ACT score by 7 points. And, I didn't think it was possible. I enjoyed his teaching methods more than most of my teachers at my high school. He makes it motivating and fun!
