STAY AWAY - EXPENSIVE

Reviewed By Samit Kapoor on January 4, 2015

I paid $1,200 for a 25 hour online TOELF class. It was terrible price for me. I had to pay by credit card because the price is high for pay by bank account. I am not happy with price.

WAY TOO EXPENSIVE

Reviewed By Alex Rodriquez on December 15, 2014

My tutor was meh. Competent but not friendly.

But the price? 80 bucks an hour for ONLINE tutoring? I mean come on.....In the future I will just find a tutor working at a community college or local high school and save some money.

Nice tutor

Reviewed By Robert on December 11, 2014

I'm reviewing my tutor and my experience with the company. I worked with Bogdan for private GMAT prep. He was awesome. He was able to explain complicated math concepts in an easy way. I need LOTS of brushing up on math and he was able to reteach me these concepts while also preparing me for strategies.

Nice tutor but pricey!

Reviewed By Clarissa Douglas on June 10, 2014

I give 5 stars for my tutor (Dani) but 3 stars for the price.

I paid $75 per hour for this tutoring and although she was a great tutor, I checked online and found more affordable options...

So if your budget is tight I would recommend looking elsewhere.

Good but Pricey...

Reviewed By Ashleigh on April 22, 2014

I was lucky that we won a 10-hour tutoring package at our school's annual auction fundraiser. Otherwise I don't think I could have afforded this. I think they charge around $800 for 10 hours which is more than this working mom can afford lol!

But the tutor who worked with my daughter was super!

Satisfactory Experience

Reviewed By Bruce Nelson on April 17, 2014

My family retained the services of this firm for private SAT preparation. Services were tendered via the company's online portal.
While the price was reasonable and the instructor was well equipped for preparing our daughter for this exam, we were not impressed with the results of our daughter's SAT. After the 10 hour private package, her score only went up by some 100 points.
This was rather disappointing.
Therefore, we can only rate this experience as having been satisfactory.

Good tutor but SLOW customer service

Reviewed By Sarah Stein on April 16, 2014

Honestly I think they're customer service people who answer calls have the average IQ of 70. Calling them SLOW would be a compliment. I had to explain 3 different ways what kind of tutoring I need (I'm in an upper level math course).

My tutor was good though.

FANTASTIC TUTOR!!

Reviewed By Jessica O'Brian on April 16, 2014

I worked with Danielle online. This was private tutoring online. She is totally fantastic. I am in boarding school and have lots of deadlines and sporting activities but, she was totally patient with my schedule. She's awesome and I recommended her to one of my friends for tutoring too!

Awesome tutor - But bad materials

Reviewed By Sandeep on April 1, 2014

I give 5 stars to my tutor. Just an AWESOME teacher all around. Brilliant, friendly, supportive, good social skills.

But the materials he gave me were bad; I was studying for the GMAT and he gave me the Official GMAT guide, but I thought the questions were old and out of date. I wanted more original GMAT exams.

Agreed. We were provided with the official SAT exams, but we would have preferred additional materials.

Unfriendly tutor -

Reviewed By Alicia on March 30, 2014

I had Calc 101 tutoring with one of their tutors and I didn't like her at all - she was super serious and not friendly. Also I was charged $60 per hour which is too much, at least I think it is.

LOL "Expert" Tutor? No way

Reviewed By Alex on March 26, 2014

My Mandarin teacher was a graduate student who has taught Mandarin in China, but never in the US. So basically I was one of her
FIRST American students.

She told me that she has worked with students in the UK, but I hardly think this qualifies her as an expert. Whatever.

I cancelled and got my money back. I'm now looking for someone who can actually speak English LOL and who is an EXPERT at teaching AMERICANS.

Ya that's lame. My tutor had a PHD but she was grumpy and rude actually I rather have someone with less degrees but more personality to entertain a student and keep it interesting.

Great tutor!

Reviewed By Charlie on March 18, 2014

If you sign up with Jefferson Prep definitely ask for the SAT tutor named Aaron. I worked with him through their online portal and he was the absolute best. My SAT score went up more than I expected.

I've always been afraid of standardized tests and he helped me chill out. He even taught me a cool breathing experience that I could use if I panicked during the exam. He didn't have to do that so it was really appreciated. A cool guy all around.

BAD customer service - but nice tutor

Reviewed By Lillian on March 16, 2014

Good luck getting these clowns to answer emails promptly.

I contacted them repeatedly about my specific, absolutely necessary requirements for commencing my private tutoring...for every 3 emails that I sent, I would receive ONE response. Quite unprofessional of them.

When I email customer service, I expect a prompt response.

The tutor, whose name was David Nguyen, was a nice fellow however and he was able to assist me with my GMAT quantitative prep.

Good tutor

Reviewed By Melinda Buchanan on March 14, 2014

I worked with Dani for online math tutoring and she was awesome. We worked on their online portal and it was great. She helped me understand concepts better than my teacher could explain.
I'm in boarding school so I needed someone with flexible schedule because I have lots of sports and clubs and she was super nice about this.

Good experience for Arabic Lessons

Reviewed By Molly O'Brian on March 12, 2014

Here's my review for my online Arabic course with Jefferson Prep:

1) Five stars for the quality of the tutor. She was awesome! native speaker, great English skills, patient and flexible (I work in the government and travel often so needed a flexible teacher)

2) Five stars for materials...they gave me their own books and they were great

3) 3 stars for price. Pretty expensive all things considered...$1100 for the private online course.

Overall I would recommend though!

Good experience but expensive

Reviewed By Ava on March 6, 2014

I had LSAT prep with Tom and my score went up an adequate amount. But I paid $1500 which was, in my opinion, a rather
unreasonable sum in light of this current economy.

But if you can pay for it (or borrow said funds from your family, as I did), then you have my recommendation for Jefferson Prep.

They Suck - Stay away

Reviewed By Abdi Hassan on February 23, 2014

I had private MCAT tutoring. My MCAT score was a 19 before signing up, and after 70 hours of private tutoring, it went to 28.

This was not enough to get into ANY medical school. I basically wasted a year and $4000 and didn't get anything.

I demanded a refunded but they refused.

They are crooks and not smart stay away.

GARBAGE

Reviewed By Gary on January 18, 2014

Terrible Experience. I hired a tutor for myself. They're policy was to send me an EXPERT tutor.

but they sent me some foreign woman who spoke with English accent. She said she was a professor in a university. Ya, please. As if a university would hire someone with this accent.

Stay away from these punks. After the package I told them I wasn't happy and they were rude.

Scam!

Reviewed By Charlotte on October 28, 2013

Jefferson Prep insists on a priori full payment, for which it does not offer reimbursement under any circumstances, even if services are not delivered, DESPITE a "guarantee". The company did not respect its contractual obligation, namely to provide the hours of tutoring for which it received payment. In my case, it neither provided me with a tutor nor reimbursed me for the untaught number of hour. They take advantage of students in stressful situations.
