What Our Clients Say

“Simply the best tutoring and help you can invest in. Tim helped me increase my SAT score by almost 300 points and gave me the confidence that, with his help and my hard work, everything would work itself out--and it did! No better tutor in Orlando.”

Jonathan

Student
“Exceptional tutors who have a well designed SAT/ACT program that will help you achieve your goal scores--or even higher!


S.P.

Student
“We would highly recommend Carrie for ACT and SAT test prep. She was able to customize a plan for our son, and in a very short amount of time both his ACT and SAT scores increased dramatically to near perfect scores. Her expertise and dedication helped him reach his goal of attending Yale. Whether someone has competitive goals to attend a top college or needs to increase test scores for other personal goals, Carrie is an expert tutor with a proven track record. We value her dedication.”

Nancy

Parent
“On top of having each question from every released SAT and ACT test at the tip of his tongue, Tim also creates a welcoming and  encouraging environment in which every student thrives. Not only has my time with Tim improved my test scores dramatically, but my writing skills also improved. I truly do not know what I would have done while navigating this period of high school if it were not for Tim.”

Our Methodology

Diagnostic Assessments

At our Maitland office, we evaluate each student's strengths, weaknesses, learning styles, and study habits to target the areas with most potential for improvement.

One-On-One Tutoring

Our tutors work with students one-on-one using personalized instructional plans on a weekly basis. 

At-Home Assignments

We assign homework based on the specific areas where students need to practice and improve.

Analysis and Progress

We recommend students take a practice test after every 4-6 sessions to prepare for actual test conditions and identify what areas need to be reviewed.
