Educational consultant - Fair Haven - WaveLength tutoring + test prep

As an Independent Educational Consultant, I knew I wanted test prep for my child that would be personalized, not one size fits all. Matt delivered! We saw a meaningful jump between PSAT and SAT. Matt’s energetic sessions went beyond repeating problems to include great advice on how to approach the test ... and life! Matt knows how to build self-confidence in his students, which is so important for these standardized tests. Appreciated his flexibility in scheduling during busy summer months. Recommend!

Score SAT - WaveLength SAT tutoring + test prep - Fair Haven

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!

Fair Haven SAT prep - WaveLength SAT tutoring + test prep classes

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.

Matt and Marlee,

Great news! Although I wasn't able to get that 800 in math (my highest math is a 700), I got an 800 in BOTH writing and critical reading!

I can't thank you enough for all of your help! Without a doubt, the SAT was the most intimidating hurdle that I faced in the college admissions process. I will be forever grateful for your advice that allowed me to look at the SAT through a different lens and raise my score by 400 points. I sincerely thank you because those 400 points would have been wasted away as unrealized potential had it not been for the time that both of you spent with me.

Today, I write to you as a Notre Dame student--something I have been hoping to say one day since I first met you--and I thank you for allowing me to reach my full potential; I couldn't have done it without you! Thank you so much for changing my approach to this test and, quite frankly my outlook on life!

Go Irish!

Math questions - WaveLength SAT tutoring + test prep - Fair Haven

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.

Prep sessions - WaveLength SAT tutoring + test prep - Fair Haven

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,

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.

Fair Haven SAT classes - WaveLength SAT tutoring + test prep

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!
