“I enjoyed reviewing questions repeatedly because some questions were almost certain to come up on the official exam. The repetition was the best part because I was going into every question with a gist of what would be the outcome. It also sped me up because I was more confident with my answers. My tutor knew the test format really well, so we didn’t waste any time going over topics not covered.”

“ Over the past couple months, Top Tutors for Us has helped me immensely with test prep. I have learned how to be a more successful student and how to strengthen my skills. My [Top Tutors for Us] tutor is a great match for me and has been fantastic in giving me the tools I need to improve. What I love most about Top Tutors for Us is everyone’s willingness to empower me to succeed! ”

McKenzie, 11th Grader, CA

“I loved how encouraging my [Tutor for Us] tutor was, she really helped me think that I could improve and helped me perform better. I also liked that she was patient and didn’t judge at all coming in and was super willing to help every time. She was also very down to Earth and was not robot in the sense that we would just breeze through questions but took the time to ask about my week and recognize when I needed a break as well. She is honestly such a great tutor and I benefitted a lot from working with her.”

Jasmine, 12th Grader, CA
