“Hi Nick. Success! Great work with my son. He killed it. His 370 point increase from the previous test is a direct result of working with Odyssey. I will be in touch next year to have you help my other son get ready. Thanks a ton."

—John O., Bethesda, MD

 

“Kendra, many thanks for your great work with him. We are so grateful! The rapport you have established with him has really helped change his attitude, so that he is much more positive about the whole process. [Score of 1410 CR + M]”

“Owen, I want to take a moment to thank you, from the bottom of my heart (and my son’s!) for everything you did for our family during this very difficult year. Your impressive facility with World History, your patience with my son's illness and the constant rescheduling of appointments, your kindness in recognizing days when he just couldn’t stay focused, your preparation in advance of each session — wow. Quite simply, he could not have gotten through the year without you.

My son took the history final and although we haven’t gotten grades back yet, he is confident that he aced it. So am I — you made sure that he was more thoroughly prepared than any of the students who were actually attending class.

You have been a real gift to us. Thank you."

—Deborah E, Washington, DC

 

“We cannot thank you enough for all you have done to prepare Jed for his SAT's (and for arranging for Ben to work with him on the physics).  It has been such a pleasure to get to know you, and we tremendously appreciate the patience, perseverance, humor, and understanding that you consistently brought to your work with Jed.  We feel very fortunate to have been able to work with you, and admire everything you have done to make Odyssey Tutoring such a strong and professional organization.

We will be delighted to serve as references, if you need one.  In the meantime, many thanks, again, and please stay in touch!”

“I think that you had a great impact on M. this year [improvement of 260 points on the SAT] and that he will benefit from your guidance for years to come.  Thank you for all your help!”

“Hi Nick, E. and I owe you a big thanks. For all of Will’s academic life, he has had difficulty with tests, even when he seemed to have command over the subject matter and his preparation seemed to be near perfect. This has continued with the SAT test, where he exhibited problems in even his recognized strengths (Math). With your help, Will became more confident with the SAT subject-matter. Finding a perfect tutor/student match is not an easy task. You and Will really worked well together.”

—M.P., Falls Church, VA

“My son is not highly motivated academically, but Nick was able to engage him, motivate him, and give him the tools to do well on the test. He was very encouraging, offering a great deal of positive feedback. Sessions were tailored to J.’s specific needs, and Nick was always willing to listen to my feedback and suggestions. I appreciated that Nick took time to get to know Joe on a personal level, and seemed to truly care about his success.”

—H.M., Arlington, VA
