Awesome tutor - But bad materials
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were bad; I was studying for the GMAT and he gave me the Official GMAT guide, but I thought the questions were old and out of date.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.
Unfriendly tutor -
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
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.
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
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.
