RFH SAT class -Elderhorst

I received helpful tips to improve my score and make the test feel less intimidating. I would recommend this class for anyone who is scared of the SAT because I was too before this class.

Calculus AB subject tutor -Modin

I just wanted to say thank you very much for Sunday's session. Your tutor, Andrew, was the perfect fit for my son. I was impressed by his demeanor and his extensive knowledge of the Calculus AB subject matter. Thank you again!

SAT Prep sessions -Sedlak

Dear Marlee,

I just wanted to send you an email regarding my son Joe's SAT prep sessions with Daniel Sozomenu. My son just got his SAT scores from his testing in June and he went from 1610 to 1760, which is great! I completely attribute this increase to his SAT prep sessions with Daniel. Daniel was a pleasure to work with and he was so good with Joe, he also worked so hard to fit him into his schedule. We really cut it close to the test date but Daniel worked with us to get in as many sessions as possible. Please let him know how much we appreciate all his help.

Thank you,
Mary Sedlak, Rumson-Fair Haven High School, RFH Fair Haven, Monmouth County, NJ 07704

Rumson SAT prep -Max Glenn

I really appreciate the effort that both of you made. You not only helped me with my SAT score but you gave me valuable life lessons. Thank you for putting up with my slightly bad behavior. Hope I will see you guys in the future.

Fair Haven SAT class -Singleton

I really liked this class because it took off a lot of the pressure I was feeling about the SAT. I think the things I learned really contributed to my understanding of the test and math and English as a whole. Thank you so much! Happy holidays.

Rumson ACT prep -Paulus

Andrea deserves all of the praise she can get- I jumped from a 25 to a 30 on the ACT!

Andrea not only taught me strategies I needed to improve my Science, Reading and English scores, but she also gave me the confidence I was lacking. When she saw me improving during our sessions, she told me that I could replicate the same results on test day and she made me proud of the progress I was making. Lessons were fun, motivating, and productive. She helped me see the test as "smaller" than it is, which made me less anxious. I would definitely recommend Andrea to anyone who needs a score and confidence boost! :)

Rumson SAT classes -Littleson

Sophomore year, I was grateful to accept Vanderbilt’s offer to play for their Women’s Lacrosse program. I knew that the offer came with high expectations, expectations I was determined to meet. But, after many stressful months of SAT classes, and different SAT tutoring sessions, nothing seemed to be working and I soon began to lose some faith in myself. This all turned around when I first met Marlee.

She not only became one of my biggest supporters but she ultimately gave me back my confidence and my drive to get the scores I needed. Marlee devotes 110% of herself to her students, and I couldn’t be more thankful for her dedication. Her approach with me was much different than my past experiences with other tutors. She knew right off the bat my strengths and my weaknesses, and focused directly on those weaknesses turning them into even more strengths. In the end, this improved my score dramatically.

I will never forget the day when I finally received my scores on that June SAT. A huge weight lifted off my shoulders, and I finally could breathe again. Going into senior year I will constantly be reminded how lucky I am for the opportunities I have been given, and especially for Marlee who stuck by me and helped me to make my opportunities a reality!

SAT prep Fair Haven -Sheeran

I thought that this class was very helpful in both writing and math. The improvements that I made I thought would not happen, but they did. And I thank you for that help.

Interpret SAT -Bernabeu

I think this class has prepared me a lot for the SAT. I understand the details on how to decode the test. I was afraid at first to come to this class. WaveLength has shown me great tricks and shortcuts to interpret and get through the test faster.

Best tutors -Godfrey

I think that Marlee and Matt were really the best tutors for me. I learned a lot about grammar and how to read the sections for Critical Reading. I also learned how to do math questions faster so that I can do more problems during the test and get more points. Marlee and Matt answered all of my questions and I understood everything they taught me. Going over the practice tests was extremely helpful and I'm more confident about my ability to get the scores I want.

Test day -Carey

Prior to meeting with Marlee, I had been belligerently convinced that I didn't need help with the Reading and Writing sections of the SAT. I had always been a "word kid" rather than a "math kid", and figured I would just figure it out on test day. However, I am so glad I decided to book my first session with Marlee. At first I thought I would just be hearing the same things I have always heard: read the passage and write notes, study vocab, learn your grammar rules, etc., but I was very pleasantly surprised.

Marlee started our session with just getting to know me as a person and test-taker. Even after the first hour I felt comfortable enough with her to ask any question I needed to or to laugh about the (sometimes ridiculous) subject matter of reading passages. I was also pleasantly surprised to find out that Marlee's strategies and approaches were unique and could be tailored to fit me specifically. She was very honest and upfront about what I needed to do more of to be successful and what I could skimp on based on that.

She helped me have confidence in myself going into the Writing section, and after our last session before the test (we ended up having three or four) she gave me a straightforward plan for what I should be focusing on the most as the test approached. As for Reading, which I've had a slight penchant towards but have never been great at, (I got a 59 on the PSAT which is equivalent to a 590 on the real deal, and had been scoring pretty low 600's on practice tests) Marlee made sure that I knew I had potential and showed me exactly how to manifest it. Her strategy of reading-not-reading the passages, which I was at first a bit skeptical towards, ended up being my saving grace. When I mentioned it to my friends, they all haughtily remarked that it was ridiculous or risky...until I ended up with an 800 on test day.

Overall, both my Writing and Reading scores are exactly where I needed to be, and despite what I initially thought, I definitely wouldn't have gotten there without Marlee. She was a great person to meet with and learn from, and I would recommend her to anybody who has even the slightest potential to score high in reading/writing (which is everyone).

Thank you so much Wavelength and Marlee!

Organization -Koh

I really like WaveLength tutoring because it was a very relaxing environment and I learned a lot. I learned organization, time management, and how to decode the test. For writing and reading, I learned how to read passages more efficiently and effectively and also learned how to write a great essay in a small amount of time. For math, I learned terms that I need to decode word problems. My score from before definitely improved drastically as much as from a 490 to a 610. I also really liked WaveLength because the instructors were easy to talk to and not intimidating. We not only learned SAT stuff, but life lessons.

Attending college -Paige

Marlee-

I know this has taken a while to write, but it has been quite the process deciding what college I am going to attend. First I would just like to thank you for helping me. I know you had many other students, and it means a lot to know that you were willing to take the time to do this for me. Although the college application procedure was difficult, your passion during writing sessions made me really enjoy the process. I will be attending Dickinson College in south central Pennsylvania. Once again thank you very much!

Sincerely,
Satchel, Rumson-Fair Haven High School, RFH 2007 Rumson, Monmouth County, NJ 07760

Mental improvement -Reynolds

WaveLength has been nothing short of phenomenal. Nobody can make SAT prep fun and exciting, but they certainly made it much more than test prep. Matt took the Math section far beyond calculating. He spent an enormous amount of energy figuring out exactly what my weaknesses were and tailored lessons specifically to them. Not only did he help raise my SAT Math score, he changed the way I approach any math problem. My math grades in school saw a 10 point improvement since the beginning of my lessons with Matt. As if that wasn’t plenty enough, Matt has had a profound impact on my daily life as a whole. Lessons like “Don’t doubt yourself, doubt your work” are applicable anywhere and will remain so for many years to come. Matt cares about your test scores and your all out mental improvement, quantitatively and emotionally. He is the kind of man you never really forget.

Daniel helped improve my weakest sections, reading and writing, by breaking it down in the eyes of a test writer. He helped me organize my thought process when tackling the reading and writing and broke the essay into a foolproof formula. He also took our lessons beyond the test; I had an average vocabulary and now I still enjoy learning new words.
Anna Rose was extremely helpful in training me for the subject test. With a well-rounded background in the sciences and high level math, she was able to explain any concept in thorough yet understandable detail. She constantly showed up with extra material that she had personally researched and printed out and I was always impressed with her dedication to my success.

meAs the oldest, and with a foreign mother, my parents were very unsure of the college process but our meeting with Marlee cleared up all our questions and allowed us to approach college applications much more confidently. Her experience has made her one of the most valuable sources I’ve ever had in college information and I am so thankful to have discussed the process with her. To put this all in one sentence: I STRONGLY RECOMMEND WAVELENGTH SAT PREP.

Thanks so much guys!
