“I had taken some of the group prep classes already and was unimpressed with their ability to help me in some of my more challenging areas, so when my mom suggested Academic Architect to get ready for re-taking my SAT and ACT, I was skeptical…especially since we had to do it over Zoom due to CoVid, which traditionally I had struggled in doing.
My challenge area was the Math portion of the tests, so I needed focused help to prepare for the type of math that would be there on testing day. Lia set us up with Nick and he was amazing - even given the challenges of using Zoom. He was personable, understanding, and never got frustrated when I struggled with an area and instead tried to teach it a different way.
Nick reviewed my scores from the previous exams so he knew exactly which areas I was challenged by, and where to focus his teaching. There were so many concepts that I had struggled with learning in my school that he was able to take and explain in a much more practical way, allowing me to feel confident walking into the exams. His ability to take the concept and break it into smaller concepts was of huge help to me as someone that previously struggled with only learning the “big picture” of the problem, as you often do in a larger setting. It felt like after a couple of sessions that he really understood how my mind worked when it came to math and was able to build his curriculum not only specific to the tests, but also to how I would be best able to understand and solve the problems.
I did weekly sessions with Nick for a few months and my math score went up on the exams, along with my math grades even in my high school classes. The ability to now be able to break things down into smaller pieces has been such a game changer for me, and I have Nick to thank for that.
I would highly recommend Nick for his math tutoring and support. As I’m now starting to get my college application responses, I’m not sure that I would have gotten into some of the schools had I not gotten this level of personalized help from Nick.
I will be forever grateful to Lia and Nick for all their help and support in getting ready for these exams. I look forward to keeping them apprised of what I am able to accomplish over these next few years.
Thank you both for all of the support and encouragement that you provided.”
"I worked with both Sam and Nick. Both guys were awesome! Super nice people and were very thorough in their work and explaining the problems. The math sessions definitely impacted my confidence going into the SAT and made me feel more ready to sit down and take the long test. I needed some basic math skill help: like simple geometry basics, and Sam was able to explain those quickly and efficiently which helped me be able to understand the harder problems. Nick and I went over general SAT problems, especially the ones that try to trick you which was a big help prior to going into the exam."
“Nick has not only given me math advice but SAT advice that helped me so much! He was very patient and reassuring! Lastly, he helped my boost my math score up 100 plus points! “
“Nick is the sweetest guy you will ever meet with the funniest personality. He is determined to always make you strive to do your best, even if u need help along the way. Nick has helped increase my math score along with my understanding. when i thought I wouldn’t be able to do it who always knew I could.”
"I worked with Nick for some math help. We only met twice before I took my second SAT test, but I feel like I learned more than I did in school. Math class in school is very tedious and prolonged, teachers try to teach you every way you can work out a single problem. However, with Nick there was one way and seemed much simpler. In the two sessions I had with him I definitely retained more information than I expected. "
"Nick was extremely easy to work with and even though I only worked with him for a few sessions, I knew I could always reach out for any questions I had! He helped me greatly increase my math score satisfactory in a short time frame and the sessions were extremely personalized and helpful every time and he gave me a lot of room to say what I needed help on!"
"Math was never my strong suit but having a helping hand that never judged me was exactly what I needed. While I was strong in some areas and weak in others we were able to work through it together. "
"The tutoring was always helpful and I could recognize it’s impact on the test!"
