“We were very happy with Boston Tutoring Services and feel that our son was fully prepared for his ISEE’s and Prep School interviews.  You were always extremely professional, very responsive and connected us with a top notch interview coach, Walter Harper.  We couldn’t have been more pleased and will certainly recommend your services to anyone that we know who may be in need of quality tutoring or specialty educational services.  I am always happy to promote great service providers, and Boston Tutoring is certainly among the top on my list.” -Peter S., Lexington
