My daughter looks forward to her weekly online HSPT prep with Karen S. She is patient and explains things in a way that makes it easy to learn. Definitely would recommend for anyone looking to improve their test scores.

Karen had great strategies that helped my daughter get through the SAT reading sections faster. She was able to apply the strategies and improved right away. She was prepared and clearly experienced at preparing for SAT?s.

Karen assisted Christian through synonyms and part of the analogies section from the upper-level SSAT practice test. that we have been studying in class. Christian liked the assistance provided in relating sentences in the analogies section.

Karen has been working with my 14 year old son to prepare for the SSAT. She strikes a great balance between holding him accountable and encouraging him. My son looks forward to his time with Karen and recognizes that the skills he?s learning will help him far beyond the test. Karen is patient and brings enthusiasm to every lesson. We are so glad we?ve found Karen!

Karen is very good at explaining and patient. My daughter is preparing HSPT. I am happy to find her in the Wyzant. I will definately recommend anyone who needs test pre and others.

Karen was very patient and knowledgeable about the HSPT and gave good insight on how to approach the test. She focused on breaking down the meanings of words using word roots and this really helped a bunch.

In speaking with my daughter about her tutor, Karen S., she always says how happy she is to have her teach her the skills she needs for taking the exam. Karen came very highly recommended and I am very happy I listened!

Karen is a tutor for our daughter, who will be taking the HSPT. My husband and I listened in the background. I love that she teaches the basics and eliminates the need to memorize. My daughter is very pleased and feels more comfortable with the subjects

Searching for an on-line, reputable, tutor is hard. When I came across the Wyzant tutoring program, I was skeptical. After much research, I decided to schedule my 7th-grade son his first lesson with Karen and boy were we surprised. My son, who has ADHD, has a hard time focusing in class, much less on-line but Karen made our experience fun and educational. My son ended his lesson with a huge smile and a mind full of new knowledge! He cannot wait for his next lesson with Karen.

Karen is experienced and knowledgeable teacher. My son was nervous before his first class. But Karen was very patient and made him feel comfortable. We're happy to have Katen as my kid's writing tutor. Thanks Karen!
- Jiyeon P. from Sunnyvale, CA
After his first session with Karen, my son ran downstairs with a big grin on his face! Wow! Looking forward to many more sessions with Karen to help him master the HSPT exam later in the year. He told me that Karen really listened to how he processes the questions and tailors her help to the way that he learns. She also gives very simple tricks to decode the questions to they are not overwhelming or intimidating. He is already way more confident and more prepared to do well on the test! Karen is invaluable so far! Thank you Karen! Scheduling our next session now!!

My daughter is a junior in high school. We wanted to hire a tutor to help her on the SAT. My daughter, worked with five tutors until she found the one she felt world work for her. Karen is very patient, explains topics well and is encouraging. We are thankful to have found her.
- Sandra H. from Spring, TX
Karen taught us reading comprehension and analysis. Excellent review and structure. Appealing to our son who was engaged and enthusiastic with the lesson and Karen's manner. She was prompt, on-time and able to provide tutoring on our schedule.
- Les O. from Las Vegas, NV
I cannot possibly say enough to describe how wonderful Karen has been and the positive effect she has had on my standardized test-taking habits and overall success as a student. In our very first lesson, she identified my areas of improvement and came to every lesson following with specific practice targeted at improving aspects such as time management and critical thinking. In addition, Karen taught me certain tips and strategies that can only be gained through years of experience in college board testing. Not only have my SAT and ACT scores improved to the point that I'm more than happy sending them to colleges, but I've also become much better at taking regular tests in school. I recommend Karen to anyone looking for assistance at any point in their test-taking journey (or even other subjects) because she is incredibly patient, caring, and knowledgeable and I truly believe she can be a good tutor for anyone!
- Bailey M. from Bedford, NH
Karen patiently waited for us to work through technical difficulties with logging into the lesson. She asked first about the well being of my child - How are you? etc. She is helping my child feel more relaxed and confident about the SAT test.
- Anndi M. from Indianapolis, IN
Karen is a great tutor. She is very patient and I really like the fact that she explains the material well. She makes sure the student understands every answer.
- Patricia V. from Downey, CA
Karen has been teaching my daughter SAT preparation for over two months now. My daughter loves her, and her grades are improving, especially in Math. I highly recommend Karen and believe that she is one of the best in here.
- Abdulaziz A. from Streetsboro, OH
My daughter had her first lesson with Karen in her preparing for ISEE. Karen gave a lot of reassurance, explaining how the test works, what are the best strategies to use. They worked through the Vocabulary part of the test. My daughter felt much more confident about the test just after one lesson. Thank you
- Tatiana D. from San Francisco, CA
Uses positive reinforcement along with encouraging words. Looking forward to working together during this school year. My daughter felt very comfortable with her teaching style.
