Improving -Reynolds

My experience with WaveLength tutoring and test prep has been exceptional. They have helped me so much in improving my math, reading and writing scores on the SAT. Also, when I started preparing for SAT subject tests, they were really helpful too. With their help, I was able to get that 800 for math! With their aid, I improved my score from my PSAT by 390 points! Furthermore, they were great in helping me during the college application process. I highly recommend them to anyone in need of a SAT tutor. They are extremely helpful and accommodating and help you reach your highest potential.

Love math again -Stacy

I love Math again. Matt has made it so much easier to understand, and to show me new ways of looking at problems. Marlee and Matt taught me various useful SAT skills. More importantly, they taught me that if I can overcome the SAT (something I really dread and fear), and work hard for it, I can do anything.

I learned so much from Marlee and Matt. They taught me skills that will not just help me on the SAT, but also throughout life. With every SAT practice test I take I can see my score and skill improving. Thank you guys so much!

Gain admission NJ college consultants -Giblin

I am happy to recommend Wavelength Tutoring. Matt and Marlee became friends and mentors to my daughter. They helped her to understand her own strengths and weaknesses and how they affected her approach to and performance on the SAT. She was able to reach her goals and gain admission to her first choice college, Dartmouth.

Higher SAT score -McDermott

Dear Matt,

This is a very professional organization. The SAT instructors are all very knowledgeable and highly skilled. I thought the in person face to face was very helpful. Most importantly the return on investment was obvious when you consider the impact a higher SAT score can have on your child's future.

Thanks,

Geometry tutoring -Marsden

January 30, 2015

As you know Luke's "year" for geometry ended this week. He took his geometry final and got a 90 on the exam. Yes a 90. Last semester he got a 71 on his midterm. We are so proud of him.

A lot of this obviously has to do with the help of Tosin. Tosin joined our family at the start of Luke's third marking period. Luke was struggling with math and it was his only class holding him back from making honor roll.

Tosin would come over once a week and work closely with Luke. Tosin has a similar personality like Luke. Somewhat quiet, laid-back and kind yet confident. They were a perfect match for each other. I would sit in another room and listen. As time went on I could hear them connecting more. Luke started to take off in geometry and it helped him with chemistry as well.

Luke's confidence with schoolwork changed. By that, I mean study habits. He became more aware of "doing well" all around and not giving up. Because of this, Luke made honor roll again this marking period.

Thank you for all your support. I know I would welcome back Tosin anytime and use your agency again.

All the best!

Word problems -Burke

While taking these classes over the past few weeks, I’ve learned the SAT format and how to approach the test. In Math, I’ve learned to put together many patterns while solving word problems that may benefit not only my math skills but my life. English has helped me with many grammar errors and has taught me how to write an essay. Taking the practice tests inside of the book has made me more comfortable with the SAT and has made me prepared to take the test. A little more help and studying wouldn’t hurt however these classes have really helped me a lot and have improved my knowledge.

NJ SAT classes Monmouth County -Haney

I completely underestimated how awesome and helpful these SAT classes would be, especially where math is concerned (just because I’m already pretty solid in english). Thank you so much Matt and Marlee! I’m really bad at writing these things, but suffice to say that you guys have definitely been a positive thing in my life.

Monmouth County college counseling -Giblin

When I began working with Matt and Marlee at Wavelength, the SAT was the most intimidating hurdle of my college process. I knew the scores I needed to achieve to be accepted into my first choice college, but the gap between where I was and where I needed to be seemed impossible to bridge. Immediately, they were able to recognize my strengths and weaknesses. Matt helped me to simplify the math problems by recognizing patterns that I could see; the questions became easier, and I learned that the errors I made were silly mistakes in my own work. “Trust your process, not your work,” is a strategy that I now implement in all aspects of my life. Similarly, Marlee helped me to create a systemized approach to the reading and English sections of the SAT, that not only helped me to achieve my scores but also enriched my learning and understanding of literature in all other aspects of school and life.

The most meaningful part of my experience with Wavelength is that I have now have mentors, not just for my SAT, but for life. The lessons Matt and Marlee taught me are ones that I will carry with me and apply to my studies at Dartmouth College in the fall of 2016.

Monmouth County SAT and ACT prep -Hoyle

I have nothing but good things to say. The classroom setting is great with a chill your professional classroom. I learned a lot and also different strategies to use on the SAT and ACT. Marlee and Matt really care how well I perform in and out of class. I would highly recommend WaveLength to my friends if they need help on this brutal SAT. Thank you so much for what both of you have done over the course of a month!

College testing -Barry

Although extremely belated, I would like to thank both of you for all you have done to help me in my college testing prep, search, and application process. I looked forward to seeing both of you every session; your attitudes and personalities were so inspiring!

Matt: I carry with me the skills you taught me on how to approach and conquer the problems that may seem difficult, but underneath are nothing I cannot handle (this is an awesome lesson that applies to so much more than math!)

Marlee: you made vocabulary and the topic of literature cool! I was enlightened by your awesome energy and found a new passion for in English in my AP Lit class this year. Both of you helped me achieve the happiness that I now have after being accepted (EA) to and deciding to attend Boston College in the fall! I would love to see and talk with both of you again soon! Have a great summer!!

Sincerely,

College counselor Monmouth County -Brodsky

Hey Matt!

You told me to email you when I got my SAT's back!

SOOOOOOOO

here they are.

I got a 1500 and a 2160...so its a 790 in critical reading, 710 in math, and 660 in writing, which is pretty horrible about the writing but i'm over it. THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH! This could legit be the best day of my whole life; I am never taking them again!

but my mom actually wants me to take them again because my college counselor said that they're not good enough to get into Columbia, so I was going to ask your opinion??

Thanks!! and THANKS again!

SAT score -Rogers

To whom it may concern,

I am going to be frank with you, WaveLength has changed my life. It’s not that they somehow made me smarter, Matt and Marlee simply helped me recognize my full potential; and I know, for a fact, that they can do the same for you. The tutors at WaveLength approach their job with a passion and a dedication that you could never imagine; they aim to not only have their students succeed on the SAT but to prosper in all aspects of their academia. Their methods have increased my SAT score by over 300 points and gave me the confidence to not just get above a 700 on every section but to expect an 800.

The tutors work one-on-one with their pupils to help them understand both their strengths and weaknesses, and they teach them how to capitalize on both. With conviction, I can say that Marlee and Matt knew me as well as I do by the end of our weeks together. Every tutor will become a teacher, a friend, and a role model for their students; and they will see them succeed. They will expect more out of you than you ever deemed possible and you will find, with a little bit of work, that the impossible has in fact always been possible.

This is no gimmick. My name is Taylor Rogers and I am a high school senior. Next year, I will be attending Yale University on a full NROTC scholarship. With the help of the tutors at WaveLength I was able to beat the SAT and to submit a college application not to be reckoned with. I still wake up every morning and pinch myself because I am living my dream, and I know that you can be living yours. I leave you with every conceivable recommendation to work with WaveLength, it is worth every single cent and so much more.

Taylor Rogers, MCVSD, Marine Academy of Science & Technology, MAST 2013, Yale College Class of 2017 Ocean Township, Monmouth County, NJ 07712

Necessary information -Sabatini

My experience with WaveLength SAT Tutoring was very worthwhile. I chose to get help from Matt with the mathematics section of the SAT and saw a significant improvement in my score. With his help, I was able to raise my score from a 660 to a 760. He taught me how to look at problems differently and how to pull the necessary information from the clutter.

I find that this skill he helped me develop has was useful on the test, but is also relevant in all facets of life. One special thing about my experience with WaveLength is that I genuinely looked forward to the sessions. It was not a chore to study, it was an opportunity to relax and discuss problem-solving.

With Matt's help, I was accepted to all of the schools to which I applied: The United States Naval Academy, The United States Coast Guard Academy, The Merchant Marine Academy, The University of Pennsylvania, Villanova, and Rutgers.

Test SAT -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!

Calculating -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!

SAT soaring -Rovere

Dear Matt,

As the year closes, I reflect on all those who played an important role in the life of my family. What you did for Torie was priceless.

You touched her life in the most positive of ways. Learning had never been more “fun” nor had more impact. Besides her SAT soaring… she had a new found confidence.

We are very grateful for all you did.

Instruction SAT test prep -McCue

Dear WaveLength tutoring and test prep,

It is difficult to know where to begin recommending someone you admire. Marlee’s influence and instruction this past year have been vital in my growth as a student and as a person.

As an athlete, I learned early that confidence was central for success. Before meeting Marlee however, I only really had confidence in myself as an athlete. She helped me realize that I had talents, and abilities outside of swimming. This new self-assurance aided me on the SAT’s as well as in my writing on my college applications and in my classes.

Thank you, Marlee!

Sincerely,
Mary McCue, Red Bank Regional High School, RBR 2003, Columbia University 2007 Shrewsbury, Monmouth County, NJ 07702

Solution -Castano

Wavelength tutoring goes above and beyond what typical prep companies teach and instills lessons and thoughts that can be applied beyond the testing center. Last year I managed to help a scientist crystallize a mitochondrial protein complex known as MTERF4-NSUN4, which plays a role in ribosome biogenesis in the mitochondria. This work led to a publication in the scientific journal Structure, in which I was named a co-author on the paper.

When college decisions came back, my parents and I were ecstatic. I was accepted into Rutgers UniversityBoston CollegeEmory UniversityUniversity of VirginiaWilliams CollegeNorthwestern UniversityJohns Hopkins UniversityDuke UniversityBrown UniversityColumbia University, and Yale University.

Matt and Marlee taught me more than just how to take a test. They taught me how to approach a problem from different angles, and how to use a variety of different techniques and ideas to solve it. The value of this approach cannot be measured. Sometimes the answer to a question is not found within a textbook, but is built through the use of a thousand different ideas that are used in combination with one another to create a unique and powerful solution.

Process -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!

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