I have been happy with Stephen B.'s performance in helping my child reach her ACT goals. He has broken the test down, so that my daughter can understand the concepts on how to maximize your score. This takes putting the right attention on certain parts of the test, so that you are answering them correctly. This will help you to make sure that you are getting most of them right, instead of rushing through and only getting some of the answers right. At the same time, he is patiently working with my daughter to ensure that she fully understands each portion of the test. Lastly, because he has a psychology background, he is able to understand how to relate and communicate with my daughter. She is now doing the practice testing, and she is scoring in the mid 20s. Her improvement has happened with just a few sessions. I have been more than satisfied with his results. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for an ACT tutor, as he has exceeded our expectations.

My son has been working with Steve to prepare for his HS enrollment tests. Steve is incredibly smart, patient, professional and has really done a great job. He is always on time, excellent follow up and a very warm and friendly person. My sons test scores went up exponentially, his school work has improved and there is no doubt that he is well on his way to a top High School. He has gained so much confidence and knowledge working with Steve. Best tutor ever!

I met with Stephen about a week before the ACT. His explanations of the test were very clear and easy to follow. In addition to doing a great job reviewing the test, he really helped me lower the anxiety I had the night before. He was thoughtful and very helpful. After just 2 meetings, I had a 5 point increase in my score. Great tutor!!!

Stephen is an excellent teacher His ability to carefully listen to the needs of the student makes him ideal to learn from. He shows compassion and understanding for each student's needs. His ability to explain material and break down the pieces of information makes for facile learning. I recommend him highly.
