I was looking for help for my daughter; her SAT was scheduled and she was not happy with her PSAT. I found Link on Yelp and set up a time to speak with Xander. I was impressed with his approach and his SAT-specific curriculum. Xander explained that through his program, on average, his students improve their SAT scores by 200 points. I signed up my daughter and hoped for the best. My daughter was very, very comfortable with their tutoring style and she really, really liked her tutors. I could see improvement in her results every step of the way. By the time her scheduled SAT came around, my daughter was confident and ready. True to Xander's word, her score improved 200 points as compared to her PSAT. Link offers many services, including college application help, and I am sure to turn to them when that time comes.
We had the best guidance from Link, not only for college prep, but also for help in AP/IB tutoring. We couldn't recommend them more! Our son had a great connection with Xander and he immensely helped us navigate the college application process. Being guided with the best advice was invaluable. We had been through the process with our older son, but still had questions about how best to accomplish the numerous requirements. Xander had so many helpful suggestions and his knowledge about how to proceed down the path lifted the burden off of us. He gave us one suggestion that in itself, made our entire payment to Link worth every penny. Our son was admitted to all four schools he applied to, even his stretch school!
My child had approximately 14 hours of content-specific tutoring (not including several practice SSATs along the way that measured his progress) as well as 4 hours of prep for his high school interview with Xander in the period from October 2016- January 2017. All I can say is that everything about Link Educational Institute is amazing. The tutors knew how to work with my child, his learning style and how to motivate him and boost his self-confidence. Additionally it was really convenient to schedule additional hours even with really short notice. It paid off with dividends in my child's SSAT score. Xander himself is extremely knowledgeable, experienced and quickly figured out how to mentor my child and helped him put his best foot forward in his interview. I am an extremely demanding customer-being a university professor myself-and I was completely satisfied with my child's experience at the Link Educational Institute. I highly recommend it.
