When you invest in a company that specializes in tutoring and test prep, one is never quite sure if the tutor they... assign your child will live up to expectations or truly help produce desired results. But in this case, we can most confidently say that an investment in Educational Services was and is indeed a worthy one. Before we made the call to ES, several friends of ours - with hard working children - had recommend ES. All were completely satisfied with their services. Even while working with ES, our son thought he would have to take the SAT probably three times to get the score he wanted. Turns out he hit a target within his goal "range" on his first attempt - a number good enough to help him land a spot at his first choice school. We are confident the process would not have been as smooth without the support of the immensely qualified tutors at ES.read more

We had a wonderful experience with Educational Services. Our first child needed to prepare for the Act. He was provided... a great tutor named Julie. The company went way beyond expectations in helping us get scheduled for the exam which kept getting canceled due to COVID. They were kind & patient. He ended up with a great score and has been accepted to several top notch universities. We will definitely use them again for our second son next year!read more

We could not be happier with our experience! From our first meeting with Julia to the end result when we received our... daughter's recent SAT score, we felt that Educational Services created a custom program that perfectly suited our daughter's learning style and her busy schedule. Her tutor, Bryan, met with her each week to go over practice tests, suggest different approaches, home in on skills that needed a boost, assess what worked and what didn't, and lend her encouragement and help build her confidence each step of the way. Our daughter took the SAT twice this fall - even amidst the Covid madness- and her score went up 260 points from her PSAT score last year!!! We are all just THRILLED. Thank you so much, Educational Services!read more

We have used Educational Services for our oldest 2 children and will definitely use again with our youngest child. Our... children are very different test takers, and Educational Services has been fantastic for both of them. ES has gone way over and above with all of the changes in testing due to COVID-19. Their customer service has been off the charts, so much better than any other services our friends have used. Without ES my son would not have had the opportunities he had this year with testing. Highly, highly recommend!read more

I cannot speak highly enough about everyone at Educational Services!! They were absolutely phenomenal throughout my... entire SAT preparation and testing process. I tutored with Carrie, and she is the sweetest, kindest, most compassionate, genuine person. I always looked forward to our weekly sessions, and she truly made the SAT enjoyable and funny. She reviewed math concepts I had forgotten and gave me strategies to pace myself throughout the test. She showed me tips and tricks for every section and explained College Board's common techniques and questions. The preparation was unparalleled, and I felt unbelievably confident walking into and after the SAT. I am so proud of my final score and am beyond grateful to everyone at ES for their guidance and support. One final note, ES took COVID in stride and didn't let it phase them. Carrie had lots of suggestions for testing while wearing a mask, and Julia and Alexandra monitored test center closures daily. When they realized one of my test centers had cancelled, they immediately called me, and I was able to change my registration. I highly, highly recommend everyone at Educational Services. They have an incredible program and staff, and I will miss my weekly sessions with Carrie. Thank you all so, so much!read more

Despite all the complications in my SAT preparation due to Covid, as my test site closed at least a dozen of times and... I had to find another date to take a test, Educational Services helped me achieve a score that was not only much better than I had expected, but exceeded my wildest aspirations. Brian was a great tutor and prepared me for every problem I could possible face. 10/10 would recommend ES!read more

Parent Testimonials

  • I have not actually met with Julie or heard her in a session with Celia. However, Celia is very happy. She does not complain or seem overworked. She loves working with Julie and had a great improvement on the last test. What I love the most is the confidence she is gaining in herself and her ability to take the ACT.
    Academy of Notre Dame Mother
  • Everything has been outstanding. His instructor Julie is very knowledgeable. Our son has worked with several other tutors and did not have the same level of respect. Additionally, the balance between motivation and accountability has been well received. While I would like to see more homework during the week they have created a genuine balance that keeps our son interested and not overwhelmed. We are extremely satisficed wit the program and the attention from everyone in the program.

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!
    Radnor High School Mother
  • 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 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.

    Phoenixville-Area High School Mother
  • 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.
    Spring-Ford Area High School Mother
  • 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.
    Downingtown STEM Academy Mother
  • Alexandra is absolutely outstanding. She understands my child's learning style and programs to meet Rachel's needs. I am extremely impressed and thankful for all that she has done.

  • Alexandra is excellent! She was able to quickly develop a report with Larissa and communicate effectively with her.

There is no doubt that the ACT review course was worth the investment.

  • Alexandra is highly regarded by Sadie. The learning environment is positive, productive and supportive. Alexandra has provided constructive, detailed feedback and has brought a number of useful tips, strategies and keen observations to help Sadie do well on her upcoming SATs, I have felt the personal caring from Alexandra towards Sadie and it is evident she is invested in Sadie's being successful. Sadie sees Alexandra as having a "chill attitude" which is great and the chemistry between them has been excellent. Alexandra provides a terrific balance of challenge and compliments. We are most grateful to have Alexandra as Sadie's instructor.

    Conestoga Mother
  • It was very easy scheduling and modifying private one-on-one sessions. Jen always responded to my inquiries in a timely manner and gave specific feedback and thorough details. My daughter thought Jen was great and felt that she was able to convey helpful tips and gave solid guidance on all subject matter.
    Radnor Mother
  • I am very pleased with Mya's progress and the guidance/feedback she is getting from Alexandra. This is our 4th experience with ES and I continue to be impressed with the value we are getting. We do not live close and it's an effort to get to you. In addition, SAT help is provided at our daughter's boarding school. We have chosen ES over that in spite of the distance and time commitment.
