What Our Students Say
- 5.0See All ReviewsCarolyn Niemann17:47 26 Oct 17This place is fantastic. We had done SAT prep with our older kids, one through a group tutoring method, one with a private one-on-one tutor, and most recently with our youngest, two full rounds of tutoring at a different group test prep center. By far and away, The Tutor Shack has exceeded our results with any of our kids by any of these other methods. The tutors know how to get to the essence of the test prep, and Josh, who is a great teacher himself, knows how to match the right tutor with the individual child. Scheduling was easy and flexible, and the communication between the tutors and us as parents has been great. Our son improved his SAT score 170 points from his last attempt after working for only a short time with The Tutor Shack! We couldn't be happier with our results and feel it was a fantastic investment of time and money.Theresa Giarrusso15:14 10 Oct 17We highly recommend The Tutor Shack. This is not a one-size fits all place. Josh will talk with you and help you figure out a plan for your teen. We have turned to Josh and his team for study skills, organization and time management skills, SAT single subject prep and SAT and ACT help. All of his tutors have been helpful and professional. My daughter has enjoyed working with all of them. We were thrilled with SAT single subject test scores and are hopeful for SAT and ACT. We will continue to use Josh and his team for all of our kids.Anjali Gupta12:11 15 Nov 17Josh has mastered the skill of teaching all kids to test at the top of their ability. Working with tutor shack ( versus other courses) is preferable as we found it to be more efficient, flexible with time and caters to your individual child's needs. He keeps your kid in the game which has become essential in this crazy competitive world.Becca Hirata23:18 10 Oct 17I highly recommend The Tutor Shack! Josh and I worked on my ACT prep for two months and improved my score by 6 points (from a 27 to a 33)! Josh is extremely thoughtful, dedicated, and efficient. He understood my specific needs and adjusted the lessons so that I could gain as much knowledge and practical experience as possible. On top of that, he helped me with my confidence and mental preparation for the test without any stress. I couldn't recommend The Tutor Shack highly enough!elizabeth r koenig13:21 20 Sep 17It is with great pleasure that we write this review for Josh Kutchai and the Tutor Shack. Josh was highly recommend to us from a few different people and our daughter was fortunate to work with him for about 6 weeks prior to taking the ACT for the third time. Josh was extremely open, professional and engaging. He quickly understood our daughter's personality and learning style. He was able to use this knowledge to keep her focused and motivated to work, even during the summer. He was extremely accommodating with our schedule and always made time to answer all of our questions. We are both teachers and truly appreciate how Josh taught to our daughter’s strengths, instead of following a generic lesson plan. Thanks to their hard work and dedication, she raised her test scores considerably. We would, without hesitation, recommend Josh and the Tutor Shack.
