The work was not just focused on scores but on the entire process, helping to identify general areas of strength and weakness, including bad habits and soft skills. The tutoring went beyond simple memorization to help with a more fundamental understanding of the material - which made the necessary memorization easier to do, retain and recall.
We recommend Mulholland Prep without reservation. They provided us with an excellent tutor and mentor. A big part of his success seems to be his ability to develop a strong rapport and relationship with his students. Our son worked with him during the summer and fall before he took his SAT tests and his test results improved by about 300 points.
A number of our juniors in the past few years used Mulholland Prep to prepare themselves to maximize their scores. We began to not only hear good things about their approach but also to observe what were, in our minds, outstanding results.
Whenever I took a practice test I couldn't wait to tell my tutor how well I had done on it. With him, I had a much faster rate of improvement than any other SAT tutor I had tried before. He knew what my strengths and weaknesses were better than I did and he knew exactly how to cater to them. Now that I'm at college he is more than my former SAT tutor; he is a friend of mine who I enjoy keeping in touch with.
My daughter's tutor worked with her on the college application process, coaching and challenging her to create great essays and pushing her to apply to more stretch schools. Her tutor was patient but firm and really cared to see her learn the key concepts that she needed to improve on.
