  • 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!
    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!
    Downingtown STEM Academy Mother
  • I feel Bryan is very good and works well with Patrick. Bryan has helped Patrick gain confidence in taking the SAT's.
    Radnor High School Mother
  • 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.
    Phoenixville-Area High School Mother
  • 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.
    Phoenixville-Area High School Father
  • [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 is an exceptional tutor. Our daughter was able to benefit from Jen's work ethic and drive. She was the right fit for our daughter. Thank you for recommending her!
    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.

  • 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.

  • Jen is an excellent instructor and Brooke has gotten so much out of the program already. ES has been an excellent choice and investment for us!
    Radnor High School Mother
  • Jen has done a great job of building my daughter's confidence and raising her ACT practice score.
    Conestoga High School Mother
  • Alexandra is excellent! She was able to quickly develop a report with Larissa and communicate effectively with her. As a parent with a child with an LD it was impressive how Alexandra quickly gained Larissa's respect and attention and kept her focused and on task. There is no doubt that the ACT review course was worth the investment.

    Episcopal Academy Mother
  • 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.

  • Just a note to let you know Aiden was accepted at both Penn State Main Campus and Brown with financial aid. This would never have happened without you guys! We are eternally grateful!
    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.

Student Testimonials

  • 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.
