Thank you for asking about our experience working with BTS. I’m happy to say that we were very pleased with the service. It helped our son know what to expect from the exam (ISEE: entrance at 7th Grade) and I think he was far more prepared for the questions than he would have been without it. In fact, he told me that he wouldn’t have been able to do some sections without Matthew LaSpina’s teaching. He’s a good student, but I think BTS gave him an extra edge. In addition, I was impressed with Matthew’s patience, teaching ability and general demeanor.
My son’s stanines on the exam were 8,7,7 and 5. We were very pleased with his achievement. We haven’t heard from the schools he applied to yet, but I’m certain his chances were improved by using BTS.

From our initial contact with BTS, to selecting a tutor and engaging in the sessions, the process was quite professional and delivered the desired result. David Hung was always on time, and ensured the lessons were understood before moving on to another subject. We are likely to schedule future sessions, notwithstanding the fact that our son was accepted by his first choice school, in order to keep him sharp. If your child puts in the time, you will not be disappointed with BTS.

Marie Pendergast has been our child’s tutor for three months and the difference in her math skills is amazing. Marie is patient, kind and very knowledgeable. Our child has not only improved her skills, but her confidence level as well. That was our ultimate goal in hiring a tutor.

Zach Halpern has been great with my son, they seemed to work really well together and got through the material at a good pace. Zach seems like a great young man and like I said he worked so well with my son. I feel so much better about the test having used your service.

“[My grandson] was accepted to Boston Latin Academy. I really feel the tutoring that Boston Tutoring did last summer and fall with him was hugely responsible for this.” -Ken A., Littleton

I was so happy when I found Boston Tutoring Services for my twin sons. Boston Tutoring Services was very accommodating and efficient. The boys’ tutor, Simon Beugekian, was a perfect fit for my boys. He taught them different strategies for both the language and math sections. He especially helped them on the essay section of the test. He helped them become familiar with the test format, and prepared them for the SSAT test. Simon was always courteous, and was incredibly punctual and flexible, which helped with our busy schedules. Simon was a great tutor and we would definitely recommend Boston Tutoring Services, and Simon in particular, to friends and family who have children who need standardized testing tutoring services.

We really enjoyed working with Jim Vlachos. He was patient, thorough, and effective! Our daughter’s points on the SSAT went up by 50 points.
What a relief to have found Boston Tutoring Services! We were incredibly impressed and relieved as Alexandra Berube found the perfect tutor for our son just in time to prepare for the SSAT exam. Lindsay came prepared and ready to help our son focus in each session, and was extremely flexible in fitting in just the right number of tutoring sessions before the big day.

We are indeed very pleased with your services, and we are very happy to have Jim Vlachos as a tutor. Our son is enjoying his lessons, and he feels that he is learning a lot every time, and definitely improving his skills. Jim is very professional, knowledgeable and a very efficient tutor. We feel very lucky to
have him. Natalia
