I was a nervous mom trying to get my son into middle school. LA Tutors came highly recommended by a friend, so I called their Executive Director, Arash back in June to get advice. He was extremely helpful and took the time to understand our needs and explained the process. He truly cared and promised to take us through the entire process. We started with an ISEE diagnostic test to get a bassline for my son’s Math and English levels. He then paired us with Theo – who was the most AMAZING test prep tutor. After working with Theo for 5 months my son’s scores went up in the math sections – which are generally the most difficult sections. We’re so pleased to hear that our son got accepted to his top choice Harvard-Westlake School in a particularly competitive year. We couldn’t be happier about LA Tutors’ support and highly recommend them to everyone.
We were introduced to LA Tutors through family friends who utilized their services for their daughter’s ISEE preparation. At the start of the summer, LA Tutors administered a practice examination for Zarah and as a result of that examination, we learned that she needed support in math, as her reading and verbal scores were strong. We had Zarah work independently during the summer, but realized toward the latter part of the summer that there were still some areas in the math section of the ISEE where she still needed some support. We reached out the LA Tutors and they connected us with one of their fabulous tutors, Gray, who was able to show Zarah some wonderful test-taking strategies and teach some of the more complex mathematical concepts in a clear and concise manner. As a result, Zarah’s math score jumped from 4 to an 8!
After taking both SAT and ACT practice tests, we decided to work on the ACT which was a better fit. I worked with LA Tutors to help me prepare for the test, and I couldn’t be happier. Chris and Albert were my tutors, who were very knowledgeable and extremely patient with me. Before tutoring I scored 27 on the ACT, but by the end, my score went up to 34, a 7-point improvement. Everyone at LA Tutors was helpful and consistently checked up on my progress and kept in touch with my parents. Overall, I would recommend working with LA Tutors to all my friends and family members.
I am the parent of a fiercely independent, high-achieving high school senior, who takes outside college coursework in addition to multiple AP courses in her high school. This may seem to be an untraditional student profile for tutoring services, but I could not be more satisfied with the work that LA Tutors has done with my daughter Chloe. We both have great appreciation and respect for each tutor who met with Chloe, not only for their knowledge base and subject matter expertise but for their ability to understand and approach learning on a very individual level. Tutoring definitely helped and it showed — she has scored 5’s on all four of her AP courses and in the 99th percentile on her ACT! The knowledge and skills accumulated with LA Tutors not only prepared my child extremely well for standardized testing but set her up for success in college and beyond.
I have been preparing for standardized tests with LA Tutors for the past four years. I started with the ISEE test after I got concerned with average marks in the practice tests. My father arranged two specialized tutors with Arash, which got me the best preparation for English and Math. That allowed me to obtain test scores in the 8 and 9 stanines—90th percentiles—which helped me get admitted into a quality high school. I couldn’t wait to work again with them for my PSAT and SAT. That’s when Danny entered the picture. With Danny’s help in the PSAT, I qualified for the National Merit Scholarship. And then he helped me raise my score yet again to 1,540 on the SAT! Thanks LA Tutors in helping me expand my college options!
