Students' Speaking

Mr. Rose has assisted me greatly throughout the college admission process. His strong attention to detail, strategic planning, and unique educational platform was imperative to my success. Under his guidance, I was accepted to 13 of the top institutions in the United States ranging from Georgetown to Johns Hopkins. Mr. Rose helped not only with just the college admission process but also with various factors outside the classroom. He encouraged me to feed my curiosity and pushed me beyond my comfort zone. He stressed time management skills and shunned procrastination. These lessons would go on to further help me in college as it proved to be superb traits for success. All in all, Mr. Rose provided me with the holistic educational support system that not only helped me go to my dream school of Georgetown but also allows me to succeed at Georgetown. As I walk into my Wall Street Investment Banking job beginning this summer, I know that the lessons of encouraging curiosity and proper time management taught by Mr. Rose will continue to help me.

About 3 years ago, I was one of you who had nightmares of being rejected by colleges. Mavin counselors were right there with me throughout the whole process and made me believe that I was actually better than I thought. There are many college counselor out there, but very few has the same passion and love as Mavin counselors have of what they are doing. That’s what makes things different. And most importantly, Mavin introduced Syracuse University, the best university on the earth to me and it changed my life forever.

My wife and I interviewed other tutoring centers and found them either too focused on just Asian students or had an arrogant attitude. On the other hand,we have been with Mavin for the last year or so and find this to be a very well-run and professional tutoring center. The owner is an enthusiastic and innovative gentleman who sincerely wants your child to grow into a capable person.  If you want the full suite of services (SAT/ACT prep, college counseling, etc.) you can get them here at a reasonable price. Remember that over 50% of high school graduates (even at Arcadia High School) go directly to community college (which does not require an ACT/SAT). At Mavin we have only experienced one-on-one private lessons in high school (non-AP) math for our senior son and writing workshops for him and his freshman brother. We view this as a valuable long-term investment in their learning and their tutors seem very knowledgeable and very effective. We are quite pleased with Mavin and recommend it to everyone, regardless of your student’s immediate educational goals.
