"We wanted to write a personal note of gratitude to Sean for all his time and hard work in
working with our daughter L. L is very hard working and intelligent, but needed the
right coach to help her with time management and focus to get to the highest level. She has
had tutoring with different coaches, but it was not until she worked with Sean that the
information clicked into place. Sean helped L. achieve a high level SAT score which we
appreciated. More impressive, he encouraged L. to try the ACT again after working with
him. She had not taken the exam since sophomore year. Her second try was in senior year, and
she scored close to perfect on the exam. We thank Sean in helping L. work to her potential.
He talks with the kids and not at them, and he helps them feel comfortable to learn. Thank you."

"Sean Simon has provided outstanding academic support and value for our family. We have utilized his services for ACT preparation and individual math skills improvement. My son took the ACT twice before working with Sean prior to his third test. After taking the school-administered test initially, we tried a small group tutoring program with another company for the second test which proved to be ineffective in achieving better results; in fact, he achieved an identical score. We were hesitant to commit to any further tutoring; however, an improved score was essential to obtaining a better college financial aid award and Sean Simon came highly recommended by a trusted family. The decision and investment to utilize Sean for individual tutoring was the perfect situation for my son, as evident by his improved results in every category! Based on our ACT experience, we have continued to utilize Sean for individual math tutoring for our daughter. We have found Sean to be knowledgeable, accessible, available and committed to the task at hand. He has earned our complete trust and our fullest recommendation."
"If we can serve as a reference we would be glad to do so. The jump from a 23 to 28 for J. got him $8,000 more in scholarship money over 4 years (if he keeps his grades up!). Your help was worth the investment. Thank you."
"Sean is great! My daughter has always struggled taking tests in school, the ACT was no exception. Through word of mouth, we found Sean. He broke down each section of the ACT and showed her methods to successfully answer the questions. She was diligent with the homework Sean gave and each week her confidence increased. After studying with Sean for a couple months, my daughter's final ACT score jumped 4 points. Sean is patient with his students, extremely knowledgable of the ACT and communicates his methods in a way your student will understand. I would highly recommend Sean to anyone looking for help with the ACT!
"I have used Sean's ACT tutoring services for both of my children. He is amazing! Sean met with both of my kids for an initial visit to assess their strengths and areas that needed work. I appreciated his knowledge and honesty about what each of my kids needed to work on to improve. He gives individualized attention to each student and his assignments and expectations push kids to success. Sean was able to help my son improve the two areas he struggled in and improve his overall score in a very short time. This past year we used Sean's services for my daughter. His new program with required sessions is well worth the investment and time. With Sean's help my daughter was able to improve all areas on her ACT. Her English score improved 10 points and her overall score improved 5 points. This growth put her into the next scholarship criteria for colleges. I would highly recommend Sean Simon for ACT and SAT tutoring services."
"Sean worked with my son a few short weeks on SAT test prep. His total composite improved 80 points to a 1490. His math improved 50 points to a 770(only missed 2 questions). His reading/writing improved 30 points to a 740. His SuperScore improved from a 1430 to a 1510. A score of 1510 opens the door to scholarships and potential admissions to elite academic universities. Sean gave my son the tools and skills to feel comfortable and confident to take the SAT without any anxiety. I would highly recommend Sean to anyone whose student is looking to improve their standardized testing score."
"We utilized the services of Sean Simon for both ACT and SAT preparation, and have witnessed significant increase in exam performance in both of our children. We particularly liked that Sean gave realistic goals and expectations on what might be achieved, revisited weak areas, gave good feedback and, most importantly, was the calm voice of reason which our children were happy to listen to, when parental 'wisdom' was not acceptable! I wholeheartedly recommend Simon Academy."
