Tutoring Boston is an amazing way to improve your overall test scores! I started with them without knowing anything at all about the SAT/ ACT, only that I took a practice test and didn't do that well. After a short period of time with them, my test scores increased dramatically. I was surprised that I did that well! Definitely worth the money and time.

Leo has been working with 3 of my children, (yes..Triplets) who all have different strengths and learning styles. He is very flexible in working with each of them, is encouraging and quite patient. His personality is easy going, but he is very thorough. All of my teens are progressing well as Leo assists them through practice tests and follow-up weekly. He has provided many strategies for the math SAT and ACT test taking process and is very fluent with the testing materials, study guides and content of the various tests. As a former Princeton Review tutor, his experience is more specific to understanding the testing models and approaches to answering the questions in a timely manner. Great value and terrific person. Thank you Leo!!
