Taken -Mervine

I really enjoyed this SAT prep class. I've taken one before and this was nothing like it. Marlee made it fun and not boring. I also saw an improvement in my practice test and actually feels if I learned a lot, and that I am prepared for the SAT.

Laugh -Adams

I had so much fun during this course and really understood Matt and Marlee's strategies. WaveLength taught me not to fear the SAT, but to laugh at it and to feed it!! I feel like I really improved in both English and Math!

Real -Harman

I learned a lot in this class. I enjoyed both teachers and coming to class each week. I learned important skills useful for the SAT. The practice tests I've helped me prepare for the real SAT. The Skinny has also helped me to prepare for the SAT overall, I think that this class will improve my SAT score a lot.

Work ethic -Homer

When I started at WaveLength, I wasn't very thrilled. Learning the strategies and the inns and outs of a test isn't fun and not something I look forward to every week, twice a week. Each class got better by the week. Overall, the verbal days were harder for me the math, but I've noticed a major difference in how I've taken the practice test. Both Marlee and Matt never sugarcoated anything. It was all raw, honest, and straightforward, which I liked a lot. Without WaveLength tutoring I wouldn't have seen the changes in results I've seen in my work ethic, scores, and time management of the test.

ACT subjects -Feldmann

Classes at WaveLength have successfully prepared me for my upcoming ACT. Andrea has helped me where I needed it in all four ACT subjects. My Writing practice test scores have increased each time. Learning strategies were very helpful and I didn't realize how much my scores would raise when I used them. Following Andrea's steps has been very beneficial. Going to WaveLength was a great decision.

English -Johnson

This class was great! Andrea helps me so much! I learned so many strategies. I learned how to establish beneficial habits for English, Math, Reading, and Science. I feel so prepared for the ACT! Andrea made class enjoyable. I improved 3 points in 6 weeks. I thought the ACT would be difficult, but I realized with the right message it isn't! I'm excited for the ACT!

Skilled -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,

Never thought -Farr

Wavelength tutoring made two and a half hours of SAT prep a little more enjoyable. I learned new ways to approach the test. The class made me think in ways I have never thought before.

Admissions counseling -Citron

This letter is in reference to WaveLength Tutoring and Test Prep.

My Name is Suzanne Citron, My husband and I have lived in New Jersey for 16 years. We have two children who attend Ranney School in Tinton Falls. Our daughter, Kyra is currently in the 8th grade. She has been at Ranney School since she was three.

Our journey with WaveLength started when our daughter returned from a school trip over the summer. Ranney School offered the middle school students an opportunity to travel to England for three weeks. They would stay at Charterhouse, just outside of London. On August 1st, Kyra asked us about her options for high school. We were under the impression that she would remain at Ranney School, as she truly loved her community and enjoyed her friends and faculty at Ranney. She explained to us that she wanted to apply to boarding school.

NOW THE FUN BEGINS!

Needless to say, we were not prepared for what was ahead. After a few nights of research, we discovered that Kyra would be required to take the SSAT and achieve in the 2100+ range in order to even be considered an applicant for the schools of her choice. With only four short months, we had to start the process of test prep and applications.

Thankfully, we found Marlee and Matt. From the start, I knew that these two people could really help us. They each scheduled a meeting to meet with Kyra and assess her needs. They determined that Kyra would need four hours per week with Matt and two hours per week with Marlee. They were patient with Kyra and helped her to focus on the task areas at hand and not just the test as a whole. They both assigned homework to keep her continuing her work during the week and not loose momentum.

After six weeks, Kyra too the test for the first time in October. Her grades were solid, with a 2100 and was in the 76%, but we knew Kyra could do better. After a review of the test outcome, Matt focused on test strategy. Matt found that Kyra typically made careless errors. He spent great amounts of time showing her the flow of the test. He explained strategies for Kyra to remember during the exam, “if the question seems too easy and you are half way through the section - check it again - you may be wrong.” Just by using Matt’s simple reminder, Kyra learned to really focus on the test questions and not just the test as a whole. Marlee had determined that we really needed to increase vocabulary. We bought SAT prep flash cards and Kyra started to memorize words. Poor Kyra was in the throws of 8th grade at Ranney, prepping with Matt and Marlee and now learning over 300 new words! But Kyra’s attitude stayed positive because Matt and Marlee were always upbeat and energetic. They kept her calm and focused.

After six more weeks of test prep, Kyra took the test again in December. Marlee had bought Kyra a stuffed animal of a lamb for good luck! Kyra loves lambs, so to have Marlee give her one really gave Kyra a boost! I am proud to say that Kyra achieved a 2176 and is in the 89%. She is exactly were she needs to be for the schools she is focused on. Matt and Marlee were instrumental in this process. They gave support to Kyra as well as her parents. They took the time to teach, but also gave a great deal of time in discussion with us. They would go over Kyra’s needs and let us know where to focus. Without Matt and Marlee, we would never have been able to prep Kyra to this level. They were flexible with times and dates and both genuinely cared about Kyra. Matt and Marlee not only wanted Kyra to do well, but wanted Kyra to think she did well. They were her cheerleaders. Matt and Marlee gave her the knowledge for the exam and the confidence to succeed.

I would also like to add that during all this test prep, not only did she achieve her goals, but also we have seen a marked improvement in her grades at school. Thanks to WaveLength, she is a straight “A” student!

When it comes time for us to have SAT prep, I know who I am calling. Do you?

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Sincerely,
Suzanne Citron, Ranney School, Phillips Exter Academy Brielle, Monmouth County, NJ 08730

Correct answer -Gowen

I enjoyed the class and built upon horrific PSAT scores. Matt always found an easier way to solve problems and helped me realize patterns. Marlee gave great time saving techniques and good strategies. The most important thing I took was how literal every correct answer has to be. Definitely keeping the Skinny for a long time.
