Students' Speaking

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.

My daughter has been getting privately tutored from Mavin for almost 6 months and my son has been taking the SAT classes and getting tutored in biology.  Everyone is extremely helpful, nice and both tutors have helped my kids immensely with not only their grades, but also with their studying, organizational and test taking skills.  Plus, my son’s SAT score went up by 219 points!  He took another SAT class before at another company and found it to be boring and ineffective.  This was the first time he found himself happy and engaged and the results showed!  If you want your child to be recognized as an individual and treated that way and not have a company use a cookie-cutter approach, then give these guys a try.  You won’t be disappointed!

Aaron and Caroline not only set you up for college, but also for life. I have personally known them for over 2 years and Aaron’s bilingual skills certainly stroke me as an impressive first impression. As we got along the usual college prep tests (manageable) we also started the college application process. Not only Aaron and Caroline patiently assisted in structuring the essay and application itself, they also gave tips that make them sound unique and genuine. As a result, their combined efforts got me into USC, my top choice college.

While most other “college counselors” sever all contact after the college application process,  We still kept in touch.To me, Aaron and Caroline instead became my life advisers and mentors for college and beyond. Occasionally, I still visit them at work to talk about steps and ask for recommendations to achieve my life goal; they are always happy and welcoming to listen to my thoughts and actions, and we will sink into a long and meaningful conversation.
