Client Testimonials

"Anyone looking into a college prep service - is lucky to find Deborah Bernstein.  Deb knows her stuff and more importantly, knows her students.  Deb adapted her approach to the learning style, needs and capacity of our son which not only helped him pace himself but also she gave him a much needed boost of self-confidence.  Much of the time Deb balanced her test preparation with keeping our son focused and demonstrating that with effective strategies, understanding the test and practice-he could succeed.  My son improved well over 100 points on his math score and all of his SAT scores were a marked improvement over his earlier PSAT scores.  Deb offered expert advice and counsel during my son's junior year and juggled her schedule to accommodate my son's active sports schedule.  I would recommend her to any high school parent."

Not only did John Jay Prep teach my son effective strategies for the SAT and ACT, they also were  true partners with my husband and me as we waded through the craziness of Junior year. Our son plays a varsity sport and has extremely limited time in the Spring, so it was important to us that, if possible, he would not have the added burden of college test prep that season. Deb quickly pinpointed his strengths and weaknesses, and built a testing plan that got him started in a focused tutoring program early in the year. Working as a team, we met our goal of finishing college testing by the sport's season – in fact, we were done by February and our son scored significantly ABOVE his initial goal! We were thrilled with the results, and have Deb to thank for making this past year much less stressful.

Thank you so much for your help - I really couldn't have gotten through the SAT without you. All of the strategies you taught me really helped me and made me feel confident and prepared. I really appreciate all that you have done for me.

- CH, John Jay High School senior

Working with John Jay Prep remotely worked beautifully. Not only could I see them clearly using Skype, I was even able to see what they were writing through their use of a special interactive writing pad. The best part was, I never had to leave the comfort of my room to get great ACT tutoring! Through the constant practice and repetition that they demanded, I was able to learn and internalize their great strategies and tips for each part of the test, and to go into test day confident and secure. In addition, Deb is super nice, caring, and a patient teacher; I recommend John Jay Prep to all of my friends.
