I took the GMAT recently, and attempted to study for it on my own using three different study guides that were loaded with examples, practice problems, and methods. Despite my self-inflicted slavery to my studying, I did not do anywhere near as well as I had hoped I would on the Quantitative section of the test. However, within a few minutes of sitting down with John, I was learning alternative, easier ways to find the answers to problems that had plagued me from Day 1 of studying on my own. I also found myself doing a great deal of material mentally rather than writing it all out. John's teaching methods pulled me out of the black hole of complication brought about by my Kaplan study guides and showed me a simpler, more time-efficient way of finding answers without having an anxiety attack of second-guessing. He's very knowledgeable, patient, encouraging, and great at building understanding and confidence. Great tutor!

"Patient, effective tutor for your most difficult subject"
ADD is not a disease or a defect, and people with ADD are not disabled.

It's not easy, but nothing worthwhile is easy. The ... More

I thought having Sarah as my tutor was great! She breaks down every concept slowly so that I can grasp the concept. The best thing about Sarah was she wasn't in a rush to teach me physics, nor did she look at her watch or cell phone to worry about the time. I can't wait to see Sarah again! Thanks a bunch.
