Experience The ES Difference
Strictly one-to-one teaching. Different instructors with different strategies for different students. Various package options are available to improve your test scores. Schedule a complimentary consultation today to learn how ES can help you reach your goals!
ES continues to offer a Performance Guarantee on the ACT of 4-6 points and on the SAT of 100-200 points depending on the length of the course chosen.
ES is open 7 days a week from 9am to 9pm for tutoring. Students schedule 1 appointment at a time and can select a new time each week (i.e. start on Sunday at 2pm, then come in the following Wednesday at 7pm, etc). We can easily accommodate students with the busiest of schedules!
I really am enjoying myself, and I feel like I'm getting a lot out of the class. I do feel a little rushed sometimes, but I do not think that is [Jen's] fault, just the time period we have and the fact that I'm a little slow to take notes (and I talk a lot haha). But I really like Jen she's lovely!! I like when she talks in depth about problems, and explains things to me. I don't do as well trying to teach myself the information by reading about it. That said, what we've been doing so far has really been helpful. I feel comfortable asking questions and I really benefit from going through the tests I take every weekend.
The best part of Ethan's experience was his excellent ACT score but other than that I would say my favorite part was the excellent communication and the personal experience. I felt that not only did Bryan know Ethan but Alexandra took the time to know Ethan. I really appreciate the individual attention. Thank you!
I cannot begin to express my confidence and happiness with Bryan. He has given her masters level English tests to practice to push her. She loves the feeling of being thought capable. And weekly she does better and better. She recently saw something she was taught at ES introduced at school and she said-- I knew it because Bryan had explained it! And last week she said- I don't have anxiety with tests but if I did doing ES and working with Bryan would definitely have cured it!
I think the proctored tests and increased practice on verbal and math have help my son prepare and increased his confidence going into the test. Specifically the practice that we focused on improving speed - quick algebra work.
Starting with the initial evaluation and throughout the process it is clear that the ES staff focuses on the student as an individual and their needs. This level of service and the recommended test taking strategies has helped my son improve dramatically on all aspects of the SAT.
[I most enjoyed] having the option to take a practice test every weekend and then going over the exam with Jen the following week, the flexibility in scheduling tutoring appointments, [and] most importanly, Jen and my daughter worked very well together. Jen made my daughter feel more confident in taking the test and was very patient in answering all of her questions. Jen is very personable and my daughter valued her time working with Jen. Jen taught my daughter many new skillsets in test taking as well as math skills she had not learned yet in school. Jen was also very knowledgeable in other areas of college admission process. My daughter was very sad that her time with Jen has ended, but she promises to keep in touch. :) Thank you! I would like to thank all of the staff with whom we interacted with for all of their advise and knowledge in the college admission process as well as discussing various colleges that may be a fit for my daughter. We really enjoyed our experiences at ES and will definitely be back in a few years with my son.
Jen was great with Emily and Emily looked forward to meeting with her every week. According to Emily, Jen really took the time to go over what she missed and explain it to her so she felt more comfortable when she saw that type of question again.
We came to ES for the purpose of turning a very good PSAT score into a great SAT score and that was achieved. Only practice and one-on-one attention could have accomplished that result. Today's students are really busy with academics, athletics, extracurricular and service activities and it is so easy to put off preparing for an exam that can be taken anytime over many months. ES was the right method for a dedicated student to engage and focus on the SAT. Being able to take full practice tests in a simulated test environment was very helpful. The length of the test seemed to get shorter with more practices which made it easier to work through the official test. The follow-up one-on-one sessions were excellent to target the areas that could be improved. No time was wasted on general overviews that weren't relevant. Finally, enrolling in the course, forced my son to focus on the SAT, something that is difficult to do in the midst of a very demanding junior year with classwork, athletics and other competitive activities.
