Testimonials

My great thanks and appreciation to David Thompson from BTS for preparing my daughter for a private school exam (ISEE) and an interview.

While we started the process late and had not much time before the deadlines, David worked with us to create a plan for test preparation and interview. The sessions were planned and conveyed in a way to make the most of tutoring time with guidance and structure for self-study between the sessions. The materials were well organized. And it all took place online. David also was very engaging and motivating.

As a result, my daughter was confident to talk during the interview and was able to improve significantly in the testing scores compared to practice tests.

I highly recommend David’s services.

“I wanted to send my thanks for sending David Thompson along to tutor my daughter. He was very flexible with meeting as my daughter’s schedule can be a bit crazy and he worked at her pace so she wasn’t getting overwhelmed. Finding out that there really isn’t going to be an ISEE test [due to Covid-19] let us do some interview prep and he really did a great job getting her to talk and add pertinent information and help her stand out. She is very reserved and she ended up feeling very comfortable and doing a great job in her interviews. Again, we appreciate everything he did and couldn’t recommend him more!”

We are happy with David Thompson in correcting our essays. Being the first immigrant and bad at English, his help really makes a difference! I just found that this website does not allow me to leave 5 stars. He definitely is the 5-star tutor.

Thank you, Dave

David Hung is an amazing math tutor. We were impressed the moment he came to our house with the exact math book that our son is using at school. He helped our son become more confident and improved his math scores. He is very patient and cares about his clients’ success.

“We asked for David Thompson for our son specifically because he was able to be flexible in timing for sessions, but most importantly because he patiently but in a thoroughly no-nonsense way taught our son HOW to do the test (and as needed, math that he hadn’t even learned in school yet). David carries himself in a way that is simultaneously gentle but gets the kid’s respect, and I think that’s the key to his success in teaching.”

Allison Feigelman is a fantastic tutor!  My daughter learned from Allison the next level of math skills, testing strategies and gained the confidence needed to enter the ISEE on Saturday.  We enjoyed learning with Allison and only wished we had an excuse to purchase additional hours to spend more time with Allison because we really like her too! We will definitely contact you should we need additional tutoring services in the future.

We needed help for the ISEE Mid-Level Exam for our son and worked with Boston Tutoring Services and our tutor, Kathy McLean. We couldn’t have been happier with the experience. Our son struggles with focus challenges and has found tutoring sessions difficult. Kathy made the sessions fun and really prepared him for the exam. Thank you Kathy..!!

We really appreciated David Thompson‘s tutoring. He had a lot of helpful and fun learning tools and worked with our daughter to make sure she understood math concepts. She got into the exam school we wanted! Thanks very much for all of your help preparing for the ISEE exam, and we will give you a call in a few years to help our younger daughter.

We approached Boston Tutoring Services after a recommendation from a friend with a similar aged son, who had been pleased with the help they had provided for her family.  The rates for their lessons were also extremely competitive and better than some other tutoring services, which I felt just charged far too much for less time tutoring. And the beauty was all the tutors came to your home.

I rang them and found Alexandra Berube to be extremely efficient at answering my questions in great detail and quickly. This was crucial as we did not have a huge amount of time to prepare my son for the SSAT and ISEE to enter at grade 9. She provided a list of possible tutors to interview very quickly and we chose Jim Vlachos.

All the tutors we spoke to were impressive and likeable, but we chose Jim Vlachos as he appeared to be the most experienced, and this shone through with his tutoring. He was always reliable and never cancelled a class, and was punctual and had the necessary books and exercises for our son to do between tutoring sessions. He gave him extensive homework and asked him to write vocabulary cards as well to help in his tests.

Jim is serious and quiet, which I preferred as I simply wanted my son to put his head down and work. Jim suited this method perfectly. Anyone wanting a live wire or someone very talkative would find Jim perhaps not suitable, but in all aspects I found he brought my son a long greatly in his knowledge and ability to take the SSAT and ISEE. And seeing as my son has just found out he has been offered a 9th grade place at BC High this September 2018, I would say Jim did a very good job preparing our 14-year-old son.  Jim was very pleased to hear our son’s news and is keen to see what other offers he might receive, which is over and above what he is required to do.

We are very grateful to Jim and Boston Tutoring Services for their help and would use them again for our other two younger daughters, and recommend them to friends and family.

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 great tutor [Brant Blumstein] and 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.
