Joey is an exceptional standardized test tutor. I highly recommend him. I found Joey after an exhaustive search for help with the PSAT/SAT/ACT for my son.
My son's school recommended a large national test-prep company, but after investigating that option, we didn't think it was the right fit. My student already understands these tests and has some experience taking them; he needed a person to get him to the "next level" and not waste time going over basic review/prep. Joey provides fast-paced and completely personalized instruction. He first diagnoses where a student is along the spectrum of readiness for these tests. He zones in on problem areas and has materials ready to strengthen these areas of weakness.
My son has enjoyed working with Joey and says their sessions have definitely increased his confidence for the upcoming tests. I appreciate so many things about having Joey work with my son. Joey is extremely intelligent, energetic, and dedicated; he knows what's he's doing and will provide concise, clear instruction; he has a good website where he exchanges files, keeps the tutoring materials organized, etc.; he doesn't waste time during online sessions (you will get your money's worth). I'd recommend Joey for help with your student's test prep in any circumstances, but particularly if your child is scoring towards the top end of the scoring range and he/she wants that extra boost. Our family appreciates Joey's assistance and feels it has been very beneficial to our son.
Tracey has done exceptional work with my 17-year-old son to prepare him for the SAT. She is knowledgeable regarding all of the SAT subject areas and really knows the test. Perhaps the best thing about Tracey has been her ability to engage my son, who can be defiant with me. He is completely focused when he works with Tracey, however, and his SAT scores have increased significantly -- beyond our expectations. College choices that we did not think were possible previously, seem to be possible now. The investment has been well worth it.
Randy is very patient, thorough and dedicated. My son likes him and says the lessons are helping him. I would recommend him for tutoring.
