Testimonials

My math teacher is my favorite person on the whole planet. I wish I had him as one of my high school teachers. Enough said.
— Bronx Science student
My writing instructor has probably been the most inspiring instructor I’ve ever had.
— Scarsdale student
TestTakers is a great program. It’s not one of those typical, boring SAT classes, and in so little time, it’s already proven to be effective.
— Manhattan student
This was seriously the best SAT prep I’ve taken. I looked forward to it every week. The teacher’s enthusiasm and encouragement really made me want to do well. The teachers were amazing.
— Dix Hills student
However you’ve been choosing TestTakers teachers, keep doing it the same way. They are all funny and make learning fun. I love my teachers!
— Staten Island student
I am now a master of the plug-in technique and can’t wait to demolish the SAT math section next Saturday.
— Half Hollow Hills student
My math teacher is brilliant, and it shows through her teaching. She’s also very willing to help out on her own free time, as she’s shown more than once, with more than one student. As a plus, she gives personalized notes, bakes cookies, and can sing!
— Bronx Science student
The program was great! The instructors made learning about the SAT enjoyable. It was a challenging course but the instructors helped me if I had trouble in a particular subject. I really liked the program and I feel more confident that I will succeed on my SAT.
— Great Neck student
My math teacher is a king among men. My scores have gone up like crazy and I feel good about my chances at an 800. I would marry into his family if given the chance.
— Roslyn student
I actively enjoy coming to TestTakers. At first, I dreaded taking the SAT but TestTakers provided me with the right tools and boosted my confidence in test-taking.
— Great Neck student
I have learned techniques that have helped me with the diagnostic tests as well as my AP classes at school.
— Garden City student
Thank you for embracing unconventional teaching methods. Saturday afternoons just got a bit more exciting.
— Bronx Science student
My Site Director has been willing to break his back to work around my busy schedule and is always enthusiastic to meet with me for extra help.
— Scarsdale student
My Site Director rules! No joke. He’s the reason I’m actually going to miss spending four hours in a classroom on a Sunday.
— Scarsdale student
I didn’t think it was possible, but now I’m over a 700 in reading (my weakest subject) and I think I can hit an 800 in the math! Thank you so much!
— Garden City student
It’s better than regular school—this should be the new TestTakers motto!
— Staten Island student
TestTakers has taught me a lot about facing the SAT, and now I don’t fear taking it. Besides that, I never thought I would have so much fun learning how to take a standardized test. The classes really brighten my day.
— Roslyn student
I actually enjoy coming here and I tell people at school that I have fun here.
— Great Neck student
I have learned more in this math class than I have ever learned before.
— Dix Hills student
My Site Director is enthusiastic all the time. He makes me stoked for the SAT, which I thought was impossible.
— Manhattan student
I would take my TestTakers teachers over any of my regular teachers.
— Scarsdale student
