I’ve been a full-time SAT tutor in northern New Jersey for over fifteen years. Here are comments from some of my students:

“I LOVE SAT Tutor in a Box! Without it, I would have done no work at all to prepare for the SAT. But the whole thing is so easy and convenient that I actually used it every day, and my score went up a lot too. Thanks, SAT Tutor in a Box!

“I have just finished my first viewing of SAT Tutor in a Box. I cannot believe how much material is covered, and how thoroughly and clearly all questions are explained. I learned so much in one viewing, and I am planning to sit down and go over it all soon. Thank you SAT Tutor in a Box for making it so easy!

Matt P.
“While preparing for the SAT, I was bombarded with tons of information. Tons of books, services, and people were constantly overwhelming me with tons of facts, tips, and secrets pertaining to the three hour test, and the preparation for it that was taking over my life. However, SAT Tutor in a Box changed all that. The discs organized all the information I needed to know about the test into different sections. By breaking each section down into its basics, it became easier to recognize the different types of questions. While I was taking the SAT for real I was able to confidently recognize the solutions through the information I learned from the DVDs. The advantage I gained from using the discs was definitely worth the time and effort it took to use them.

SAT Tutor in a Box teaches you all the tricks to acing the SAT, and if you don’t get something, you can just rewind!”

I highly recommend Mike, as he can certainly help you increase your score, and have a fun time while doing it.”

Eric L. University of Pennsylvania
Wharton School of Business
“For a procrastinator like me, Mike was invaluable in helping me set realistic schedules and goals for the SAT.

When I got my results, I was happy to find out that Mike had helped me raise my score almost 300 points on the ‘old’ SAT.”

Jon K. Cornell University
“I have gone to three different SAT I tutors and Mike is by far the best. He helped me raise my score greatly because doing work for him does not seem like work. He is able to relate to kids and that is why he is so effective.”

Matt B.
“I would never have gotten my score without Mike’s help. Whether it was math strategy, study skills or his levity and humor, his tutoring made a huge impact on my SAT score and my life.”

Orly E.
“When I came to Mike at the beginning of my junior year, I was probably like any other reluctant teenager about to embark on the onerous and tedious journey of SAT preparation. Dragged into his office by my parents, being tutored for a test was the last thing I wanted to do. However, if it is possible to believe, Mike was able to bring life to the most boring of material. Mike has figured the SATs out to a science, and is able to make preparation a challenge that intrigues and involves even the most hesitant of kids (me). Not only is Mike able to teach you the ins and outs of any type of question the SAT will throw at you, but he also has the ability to encourage and instill the confidence and self-assurance needed to get you to the goal you strive for. One could not ask for anything more in a tutor. Mike was the reason I achieved the goal I set for myself, and he helped me enjoying getting there.”

David C. Dartmouth College
“Mike provides a service that gives students a significant edge in preparation for the SAT’s. My SAT score improved over 200 points on the ‘old’ SAT under his guidance. I would recommend Mike to anyone seeking help.”
