My wife and I wanted a tutor for our son that had experience with the SAT/ACT. We were blessed to find Rick. Yes, he is pricey, but trust me, its well worth it if you want your son or daughter to succeed. Rick not only tutors for the exams, he actually takes them himself. We interviewed a bunch of tutors before we found Rick. They all claimed they had the best tutoring results, but how can you claim you have the best results and never sit for the exams annually. He took the time to understand what the problems our son was having and created a lesson plan for him. Our son had his sights set on a tier 2 school before tutoring sessions with Rick. We are proud to say that he was accepted to 9 out of 11 schools he applied, 3 ranked in the top 30 according to US News and World Report. It could not have happened with Rick. He is challenging, detailed and extremely patient. My sons score went up 5 points from the first ACT score after tutoring with Rick. If you want your child to get it right the first time, choose Rick.
