We couldn’t be more pleased with our experience with Boston Tutoring Services. Our son was incredibly well-prepared for his SSAT and his high school applications. Our tutor, Alison, was always accessible and gave us excellent written feedback after each session. We will continue to use and recommend BTS with great pleasure!

My son scored an overall 87 on the SSAT. He also took the HSPT and scored in the 98th percentile overall for that test. We thought Jim Vlachos was awesome, he made sure my son knew the layout of the test, what to focus on and what material he needed to work on during his own time. My son applied to Dexter and got in there but he will be going to Xaverian Brothers with a 4 year Academic Scholarship which is directly related to his test scores. I have 2 other boys and will definitely do the same route with them as well as the SSAT prep when that time comes. Thanks so much.

Our experience with Boston Tutoring Services was excellent. Our tutor was extremely knowledgeable with the ability to teach in a supportive way that gave our daughter the tools and the confidence to do well on the SSAT. The email communication was great and made the process easy and organized. We had a wonderful experience with Maureen. Thanks for everything!

We reached out to Boston Tutoring Services to help prepare our son for a second-round of SSAT testing. Alexandra and her staff responded immediately to our request and quickly established home-based tutoring sessions. The results were most impressive as our son improved greatly over his previous SSAT scores. We can’t say enough good things about BTS–outstanding people, professional, and accommodating!

We decided to hire a tutor with Boston Tutoring Services after my son Isaac received low scores on his first round of the SSAT. He’s a smart kid so I didn’t know why he performed so poorly on the test. After Andrew Carr’s first session with Isaac, he clearly identified Isaac’s strengths and weaknesses and proposed solutions for filling certain knowledge gaps and improving Isaac’s test taking strategies. Isaac is somewhat shy and Andrew was the perfect tutor for him. He really felt comfortable with Andrew and Andrew’s teaching style. On the day of the retake exam, Isaac felt prepared and empowered. In hindsight, I should have signed him up for tutoring with Boston Tutoring Services long before he took the test the first time because I’m certain he would have really benefited from working with Andrew longer. But, I am proud to report that Isaac improved his overall score by 40 percentage points! Thanks Andrew and thanks Alexandra. We’ll see you in three years when he starts preparing to take the SAT.
