My son will be taking the SAT for the first time this Saturday. He was not at all interested in doing any SAT prep work. When I mentioned getting him a tutor, he was not pleased. However, after a few sessions with Rich, I asked what he thought. He stated that Rich taught him more in these sessions than his 2+ years at his private high school. I could see his confidence build after each session and his scores improving steadily. He was also motivated to do the prep work because of the progress he was making. Rich not only has great insight on how to prepare a student for the SAT, he is very professional, kind and patient. He even came to the house when they couldn’t meet at the library due to weather conditions. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a tutor–just wish I had known about him for my two older children. Thanks so much, Rich!!

And post-test follow-up:

Hi Rich,

I just wanted to let you know that Peter got an 1840 on the May 2nd SAT.  We are thrilled with this result, even though he may take it one more time in September.

Can’t thank you enough for your time and this great result.

I worked with Rick for 6 weeks and increased my ACT score from a 26 to a 32! He’s a great tutor for both the ACT and SAT and I felt calm, comfortable and well prepared going into the test. Thank you!!

I highly recommend Rick! He helped my daughter via Skype tutoring to prepare for the math sections of the PSAT/SAT. He is very knowledgeable about the changes to the revised exam and explains things in a simple, uncomplicated style that is very effective. He also has a relaxed manner that put my daughter at ease but helped her master the material. My daughter said, “Why can’t all my teachers explain things the way he does?” His materials are thoughtfully prepared and thorough. He is punctual, reliable, efficient, and effective. I am thoroughly satisfied.

Thank you so much for helping me prepare for the test- I definitely know that if I had not studied this summer, my previous score would not not have gotten me very far at all with some of the schools on my list. I’ll be sure to pass on your name to any of my friends looking to take the test.

Rick worked with my daughter for a month and she increased her scores by 100 points in math and reading. He is an excellent resource for sat prep. We had gone to a larger organization that was run like a production line and did absolutely no good. Rick works one on one with the student, he provides a summary after each session that is quantifiable which was super helpful. I would definitely recommend to anyone.

It has been a great experience having Rick tutor my daughter. She started of with an average score of 26 and quickly improved to a 33 on the practice tests. He utilized every second of the session to teach and provided good tips on the test. He focused on her areas of weakness and was very knowledgeable about the material. He sent me feedback on the session each week outlining her progress. I highly recommend Rick.

Parent of E.P., Downingtown (Downingtown STEM Academy)

I worked with Rick for about a year and he has been an amazing tutor! He customized tutoring sessions and homework to my needs as a student which made my progress more noticeable and specialized. My SAT and ACT test scores both improved dramatically after working with Rick. I have and will continue to recommend him to anyone looking for a standardized testing tutor!

T.V., West Chester (Henderson High School), SAT increase of 180 points (June 2015 test)

Rick tutored my daughter for her SAT’s. She had done well taking them on her own, but wanted to increase her scores because the schools she is interested in are very competitive. He was very professional and thorough. He gave her homework each week, and followed up each session with an e-mail summary for both her and me. We were both happy with Rick.
