    We had tried the ACT and SAT group sessions, self study books, flash cards, etc. with our older 2 daughters. We tried Michael for our 3rd daughter and can’t recommend him enough! We knew our daughter had some potential, but he truly actuated it despite some personal setbacks. I'm happy to say that my daughter got a 34 on her ACT after working with Michael. Are you interested in continuing to invest in the best for your son or daughter? If so, please consider the following reasons to use Michael as your son or daughter’s tutor based on our personal successful experience: 1) Michael is excellent at zeroing in on the areas that your student needs improvement and will focus on those key areas. Thus, he is efficient and will use your student’s time very wisely. 2) Michael will teach your student testing strategies and skills that will continue to help them whenever they are faced with testing in the future, not just for the ACT or SAT. 3) Michael keeps your student on schedule to be ready for the testing day. If you would like your student to be happy with their SAT or ACT score, give Michael a chance. You won’t be disappointed!

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a tutor in your area of expertise?

Have a first session with the tutor first to see how well you work together and what his system is about. Do you need a certain increase on your test scores, or do you just want better test taking habits?


What questions should students think through before talking to tutors about their needs?

What sort of scores are they looking for and what is the final end.
