Personal Test Prep
Private online instruction with a world-class expert
Private online instruction with a world-class expert
I've been teaching test prep for over 20 years. After working for the big test prep companies in NYC, London, and Tokyo, I realized that I could do a much better job on my own.
In addition to teaching, I write test material for schools and businesses. If you're preparing for an exam, why not study with the guy who writes the questions?
When you and I get together (online), we'll work on the areas of the exam that will most improve your score. Test content, strategy, time management — we'll cover all the bases. Have a look at the testimonials below to see what others had to say.
"FYI, we got the results from Megan’s SAT scores and her reading went up by 70 points. So, now with the super scoring option she has 730 in reading and 720 in math for a combined score of 1450 – which was her goal. Thank you! I’ll be definitely be enrolling my son in your program in the future and recommending you to friends."
"Adam, You had asked that we tell you about Addison's improved PSAT score so we are happy to let you know. She started at 189 last spring and she bumped it up to 223. Thank you very much for your tutoring, it obviously was worthwhile."
Sincerely, Susan and Barry Astroff
Wanted to give you feedback on the SAT prep you did with Michael...
Reading went from 600 to 620; Math from 610 to 690; Writing from 600 to 670.
He needed to be around 1300 Reading and Math to be competitive at this academic baseball showcase he will attend in August, and so he is very happy to have made that goal. Thank you so much, and we will be sending him over your way again in the fall for ACT.
This is Jack. I just looked at my results and I got a 34 composite. I'm very excited I went from a 28 in September and I improved significantly in every section. Thanks for all of your help!" Jack Jenkins
Hello Mr. Groden:
I just wanted to let you know that my daughter, Alexis Arensberg, increased her ACT Composite Score by 6 points from a 22 to a 28. Thank you so much for helping her to improve her score!
Just wanted to let you know Kathleen received her ACT score the other day. As you may recall, her two previous test scores were 23, which I thought was below her potential. Her most recent score (after taking your preparatory course) was 28! Needless to say she was very excited and pleased with the result.
Thank you for taking the time to work with her, providing some insight into the test and building her confidence. It seemed to work. Craig Watz
"My schedule did not allow me to devote as much time as I would have liked to preparing. Adam helped me focus on those topics that needed improving and provided me with no-nonsense advice and time-saving strategies. Now I'm off to Harvard Business School!" Tamara Nall."
Dear Adam, "Thank you so much for your GRE help. I applied mainly to schools in Chicago because I wanted to stay in the Midwest close to family. I was accepted to Northwestern and University of Chicago (and NYU, Columbia, and Harvard...but they aren't in the Midwest, obviously), but accepted Northwestern. My offer still stands! Please let me know if any of your students need arecommendation.Thanks for all your help! I couldn't have done it without your assistance." Hadley Ruggles

My lessons with Mr. Groden helped me where I most needed help. It took some work, but I’m really pleased with my score improvement.
"I enthusiastically recommend Mr. Groden as an instructor. He knows the material thoroughly, presents it in a clear, concise manner, and is a caring and conscientious professional."
