Success Stories

  • “Our TEACH tutor has been with us for over 2 years, and she has been amazing with my sons. She has helped them build confidence in their writing abilities, believe in themselves, and trust their own instincts for creativity and imagination. I can't thank TEACH enough for providing a beautiful writing angel for my boys. We love TEACH and all their teachers.”

    - Maria Y., Masterman Parent, Academic Tutoring
  • “Excellent experience bringing my son’s scores up. Individualized assessment, knowledgeable tutors in every discipline, small class size for group sessions. A great overall experience for tutoring and enhancement.”

    - Dell M., Science Leadership Academy Parent, Class of 2016
  • “TEACH helped me raise my ACT score to a 30!”

    - Jonas B., Science Leadership Academy Student, Class of 2016
  • “We wanted to let you know how happy we were with the ACT tutors we used from TEACH. We contacted them fairly late in the cycle but they were very good about making a workable schedule. As a former Princeton Review tutor, getting high scoring kids (95th percentile on the practice test) higher (99th percentile) is not easy. If folks ask, and I know they do, you should recommend this group without hesitation.”

    – Springside Chestnut Hill Academy Parent, ACT Tutoring, Class of 2019
  • “Thank you and your team for the SAT tutoring. He [started with an 1150 (540 math, 610 verbal) and] scored a 1310 (680 math, 630 verbal) and we are thrilled!”

    – Springside Chestnut Hill Academy Parent, Class of 2019
  • "I really appreciated how helpful the instructors were and the engaging strategies that they used. I expected this ACT course to be intimidating but the environment is really supportive and my scores went up."

    – Zoe, Springside Chestnut Hill Academy Student, Class of 2020
  • “My experience with teach was amazing. I was able to learn from teachers who planned the best classes. They took time to make sure every student made progress after every class.”

    - Jennifer L., Keystone National High School Student, Class of 2019
  • “I would highly recommend TEACH for ACT test prep. Maria treated my son with respect, including him in the process of assessing his skills and goals. Megan came up with a clear plan keeping in mind the amount of time my son had to study and being efficient with what we could pay. The tutors were fabulous, personable with good energy making their sessions super productive. They built an easy relationship with my son and cheered him on to ultimately attain his goal score (seven points higher than his starting score)!”

    - Devorah L., Central High School Parent, Class of 2017
  • “Beyond the results, what impressed me most about working with TEACH was the dedication of the instructors. Our students required extra care and attention and the staff were willing to go above and beyond in order to motivate our students and push them to be the best versions of themselves.”

    Kevin T., Director of Graduate Support, St. James School, SSAT Tutoring
  • “I have been working with TEACH for seven years and am so impressed with Maria and her team. The tutors are subject matter experts who consistently provide top-notch services to our students and families. What stands out the most is the amount of time and effort the TEACH tutors put into each lesson, specifically tailoring plans to best fit the needs of our students. Instead of being led by scores or acceptances, the team is led by a genuine passion to see students succeed at the highest level possible- a true rarity in this industry.”

    Danielle M., Assistant Director of STEM Programs
  • “As a high school student, I was in a program called the STEM Scholars at The Franklin Institute that partnered with TEACH. Through the STEM Scholars Program, TEACH helped me to hone and expand my academic abilities through personalized and holistic tutoring in preparation for my ACT. Their dedication to my academic success ultimately equipped me with the training I needed to excel on this standardized exam and enter into my dream college. Even more, my experience with TEACH is one that continues to shape me today as a senior graduating college, as the skill sets that I developed under their instruction still aid me when preparing for exams at the collegiate level. These skill sets are not just invaluable towards my education, but for fulfilling my long term academic goals.”
