REACH FOR 1600 | SAT PREP | SUMMIT SAT PREP |  Naperville Tutoring Advantage


One-on-One SAT PREP Tutoring | SAT Test Results | 2220 | 1560 on NEW SAT

I just wanted to get back to you to let you know how W. did on the June SAT. 

His scores were: Critical Reading: 740, Math: 720, Writing: 760 | Composite 2220 | 1560 on NEW SAT

W. told me he felt your preparation was good, to the point, and useful for the test. He was happy (tho never completely satisfied--you know how W is!) with his scores. I believe the scores are a little better than his ACT, so the SAT was worth doing. Thanks again for all your help, and we'll be happy to provide a positive reference if you have any future clients looking for SAT prep help. We'll let you know when W finally makes his college decision. W. told me your prep was better for his preferred style of learning/studying than your competitor's review course, so I'm so glad we found you! We hope your summer is going well--before you know it, the fall review sessions will be revving up!

REACH FOR 36 |  SUMMIT ACT PREP | ACT PREP | ACT UP ™ | Naperville Tutoring Advantage


We are honored and proud to serve Naperville & surrounding area students with ACT PREP and SAT PREP.

Naperville Tutoring is delighted to see many ACT Composite score gains: Our lowest average gain we see on the ACT Test is 3 points up. The ACT Test is commonly repeated during the Junior and early Senior year. When you see a 5-9 point gain, it is usually a result of a student taking the ACT Test three, sometimes as many as five times.

The test scores reflected are those Naperville Tutoring has been made aware of by our students, moms or dads sharing their proud results.
We hope this information will be helpful, providing encouragment to consider Naperville Tutoring for your son's or daughter's SAT or ACT PREP. We welcome working with your son or daughter!

Naperville Tutoring is excited & rewarded when they hear students reach their test goal ... delighted when they hear news from the families whose son or daughter receives an invitation & admittance to his or her Dream University, along with a scholarship. We are honored to have had a small part in helping. Now that is exciting & rewarding!

Sometimes we stay in touch after students are ready to graduate from college ...

"M is doing well! He will be a senior accounting major at Ohio state. He'll graduate in May next year and will be finishing his extra hours for the CPA exam by December 2018 (need 150 hours to sit for exam).

We are doing well too. Two daughters, now married, and three grandchildren. Hard to believe it. They are all grown up! No downtime yet. Not til tuition is all paid. Thx to your help tho M has enjoyed a good scholarship from Ohio state."

Just want to let you know that we are extremely happy with the result! When we contacted you, we were a little concerned because there were only 8 weeks left before the June ACT test. However, your course was effective and efficient! Without your help, we don't believe O could improve his ACT from 32 to 35! We will definitely refer you to our friends.


Thank you!

J made a 32  on his June 14, 2014 ACT. I think that is an excellent start. Interesting scores: 32, 29, 32, 35. This is from the ACT website. Thank you for your very special assistance, and we hopefully can discuss another set of strategically placed SKYPE sessions to help him move that score up. The most likely date for his next test will be the February 7, 2015 test date.

J earned a 34 on his most recent ACT. The increase was clearly achieved through your help by increasing his Math score from a 28 to a 33 (Eng 35, Math 33, Reading 31, Science 36)

The guidance and support you provided has been essential to his success. Thank you.

I thought you would enjoy knowing that J has been accepted to both Air Force Academy and to Yale. He also applied to Annapolis, and has not yet heard back, so no rejections! I believe he is going to attend Yale on an ROTC scholarship. Thank you for being an essential part of making that happen for him.

Thank you guys again for your help. It made a tremendous difference (which my 2 point jump shows:). 

English-35 (two more than personal best)
Math-30 (same as personal best)
Reading-29 (two more than personal best)
Science- 33 (one less than personal best)
Composite- 32 ( two more than previous best)

I'm confident that with more work and the full time you guys suggested I would have been able to make that 32 a 33 or even 34, but I still think what you guys helped me do in such a short amount of time was incredible. Unfortunately, or fortunately I guess, I am finally done with the ACT! Woohoo! 

Again, thank you both so much. I will send you a picture of myself as soon as I find one to send so I can begin my road to fame on your website instead of the road to a 36. ha ha. Thank you,


N P | Student | Waubonsie Valley High School

Very nice to get your email this morning. I will let N answer your question himself (we are waiting on final, final confirmation next week, but it turned out to kind of be a dream scenario for him/us – and it wouldn’t have been possible without the  32). 

I wanted to send Merry Christmas wishes back to you and Paul as well. Thank you for your kind words toward N – every parent likes to hear someone else say nice things about their kids.

So, speaking of kids, that’s also why I wanted to reach out. I had mentioned that our youngest son C is a Sophomore this year - heading toward a Junior year and ACT prep next Fall. When would we need to start talking to you about putting him on your list for next Fall and what would you suggest for how you would work with him? You will enjoy C – he is BY FAR our most social kid.

Hi, I got a 25 so my score went up 4 points I believe. I am going to take it again in April and probably in June if I don't like the score I get in April. I have made a list of 10 schools I'm considering and they all pretty much have the same requirements so I'm hoping that getting the score I want will allow me to get in at least three of those schools. Thank you again for the tutoring it was very helpful!

Hi Joan and Paul,

I wanted to let you know that I finally got my composite score for the second test: 22! 24 English, 18 math, 22 reading and 24 science. My writing score is not yet calculated but as I understand it, the writing score doesn't change my composite score. I'm sure you both remember that I only needed a 21 on my score in order to qualify for the Schools specialization of my MSW program. So, needless to say, I am beyond happy and so thankful for your guidance and help! The support and advice you gave me were priceless. Thank you again.

K's experience on her one to one tutoring has been completely positive and very rewarding! The two hours she spent with you (Ms. Joan and Mr. Paul) once a week for 9 weeks increase her test score 4 points! The accountability and the outline you gave her to stay on track was critical to her success. Thank you sharing your problem solving techniques when you worked through The Barron’s workbooks and The Real ACT Guide workbook. These techniques not only help her with her ACT testing, but she applied these same techniques to her AP/Honors high school tests in physics, calculus and history.

The investment as a parent that we made with Naperville Tutoring has been a 100% return! The Merit Scholarships K is eligible for now with her GPA and her ACT results!

We have recommend you to other families and will continue to do so!

I got a 35 in English, and 33 in the other 3 subjects. 34 Composite. Again, thank you so much for taking me as a student and helping me to achieve my goal! 

For me, it was a lot better to go through each question and explain the right answer instead of just saying "A is wrong, B is right". It helped me more to learn about how to answer questions effectively. Because I can answer questions more quickly, I have more time to go over what I might have missed.

SUMMIT ACT PREP | One-on-One & SKYPE | Straddle Approach 

My experience here has been completely positive!  I struggled particularly with Math, and the individualized sessions allowed me to work on Math as much as I needed to.  This really helped me improve my scores.  The Barron’s workbooks were also extremely helpful, as they provided a diverse set of practice questions and good reminders about each section of the ACT test.  All the Act Practice tests I was able to take helped me to solidify what I learned during tutoring and from the Barron’s books by putting it to use soon after learning.  All in all, I was able to accomplish tons by working with Ms. Joan and Mr. Paul—and they’re super kind and welcoming, which makes every session great!

Hello! Hope all is well. I greatly apologize for not sending you anything sooner! Just wanted to let you know I can not thank you two enough for all of the prep & time you devoted to me prepping for the ACT. I truly appreciate it and went into the test feeling very prepared. Overall I think the test went well for the first time actually taking it. The only thing I was worried about was that I found one the passages for reading to be difficult than most. The rest of the passages seemed good though. Other than that I felt I did well in English, math, and science! I learned many valuable tests taking techniques and concepts from you two that will help me in many other aspects of future test taking for any subject. Thank you again so much, I enjoyed learning from you both. Your knowledge, professionalism, and dedication was evident in every session. I looked forward to each Monday night and you made something boring and stressful, fun and enjoyable. I am sure I will be seeing you in the future. Hope you have a wonderful holiday season! Hope the dog search is going well, too:)

The money to invest in learning how to take the ACT Test is worth it!

T. C. | Mom | Metea Valley High School

L attended Naperville Tutoring’s One-on-One private ACT PREP sessions simply hoping to improve my score.  I was not sure where to begin, but with their help, I learned how to see and respond to problems differently.  Throughout the sessions, we targeted my weaknesses and further improved my strengths.  The sessions themselves revolve around active participation by working out missed or confusing problems or simply asking questions, which allow me to really understand and apply it later.  By the end of the sessions, I not only increased my score, but also gained an immeasurable amount of confidence.  I was able to walk into the test, truly believing I could succeed.  Super scored a 33 , so that's really good because a lot of my colleges take the highest from all tests.

After months of heavy deliberation, I've decided to attend the University of Chicago and I'm really excited. It was great working with you guys and I wish you continued success in your business.

Naperville Tutoring has brought my ACT score so much higher than I had anticipated coming from 2 previous ACT prep classes. I feel so much more prepared after 2 weeks with Naperville Tutoring than from former months of ACT PREP practice. The 2 teachers on 1 student structure truly pushed me to work harder than ever and the work is paying off.

As A. gets ready to sign her National Letter of Intent (NLI) tomorrow to play Division I college hockey on a full ride, she owes thanks to all of the great coaches that have helped her achieve her goals. You guys are among those great coaches.

When we came to you, A. was heavily recruited and had offers from a number of NCAA DI schools including some Ivies. You guys sat down with us and developed a unique game plan that fit her demanding travel schedule. You designed practices for her and coached her to master her skills and technique. After watching her take early practice ACT tests on the road, I could not have imagined the calm confidence that she displayed before and after the official test. By “game” day, you had converted a nervous wreck into a confident test taker.

With your help, the hard work paid off. A. achieved personal bests in all subject areas and raised her composite score by 4 points overall. By doing so, she had achieved the ACT score necessary to attend any of the schools that were recruiting her - even those in the Ivy League.

Again, thank you for being great coaches!

(A note from Naperville Tutoring: We know this father & daughter were generous in going forward with our ACT PREP. When A. received the good news of a full-ride athletic scholarship to Mankato, they still made an ACT PREP investment to help other students who might qualify for scholarship assistance. How generous A.C. and Mr. M.C.)

I don't know if M replied or not. She got a composite score of 31 on the April test. She was very excited, as were her mother and I. She plans to take the test again on June 8th. Without any pressure on her having the 31 in hand, she hopes she can improve just one more point. Her decision to go for it, not ours. My wife and I thank you for helping her. While it seems expensive when writing the check, the merit award scholarship money a score of 31 provides along with her GPA and other activities, puts her well on her way to getting a great education, and without a mountain of debt when she is done. Thank you.

I have tried many other ACT PREP tutors before. In the end, they never helped raise my score in areas that needed to be raised. My English was weak and the Barron's workbook has helped improve my score. I personally was not a big fan of the Barron's books, mostly because I didn't look at my Barron's homework and had to cram. I can now say that the Barron's workbooks improved my score. I like the Real ACT Practice Tests because this book had good and fair tests, even if some of the tests differed in difficulty. I had a good experience and wish that I had heard of Naperville Tutoring service sooner.

M got his ACT back from the September test. He got a 28 composite. Woo hoo!! The split of scores were not as expected: English 29, Math 28, Reading 30 Science 24. The 30 in Reading and the 29 in English brought his super score up to a 30!Whooooohooooooo!

So, he got what he needed for both Ohio State - 28 and Indiana Business School Direct Admit - 30 

Thank you for all that you did for him!!!

The work in the Barron's workbooks was a challenge, but the difficulty made the actual ACT Practice tests much easier. I enjoyed the intimacy of the class because all of my questions could be answered with thorough explanationsI feel much more prepared going into the test than when I studied on my own. I was able to learn more strategies to help with my timing and accuracy.

School has been keep me busy especially with AP exams and finals which are coming up. My April ACT was an improvement from my last ACT score. I got a 35 on English , 28 on Math, 31 on Reading, and 26 on Science. Still waiting to hear about the ACT I took in school, I am signed up for the June 8th with focus on Math and Science. Thank you so much for everything! I haven't made any decisions on colleges yet because I'm waiting to see how high I can get my ACT score. My overall GPA is a 4.7. I have applied to volunteer at Edwards over the summer. My mind is pretty set on management as my major and I'm hoping that my shadowing at a law firm and another who is going to tell me about his practice and career will help give me assurance about my career plan. I got a 32! Thank you again for everything!

Thank you for the tutoring sessions. I appreciate all the help. I'm glad I heard of this program from our neighbor, as it was strongly recommended. I'm satisfied with how the tutoring worked out as I was able to successfully raise my score. Although it wasn't my goal, I knew if I continued practicing, I could get better. I enjoyed these sessions because, frankly, I don't have the motivation to study on my own. Also the One-on-One or rather, your 2 on 1 tutors for one student style gave me a lot of flexibility in narrowing down my focus of study. Even though I already had my Real ACT PREP Guide, from the makers of the ACT, I was glad to receive the Barron's workbooks. Before any section with questions or problems, the Barron's workbooks would introduce information and different methods and strategies pertaining to these questions. This helped me, especially with Math, by demonstrating how to work through a problem. Also, the Barron's workbooks were more rigorous in all subjects, preparing me well for the ACT. Thank you for helping me explore my potential.

I really appreciated the time you put in to help me improve. The specialized program and flexibility really zoned in on me as an individual to better suit me. You always answered any questions I had and helped me wrap my head around the most difficult and far fetched questions. Your kind and easy to relate to personalities really put me at ease and made it more enjoyable to work with you. Thank You!

I really enjoyed my experience with Naperville Tutoring for my ACT Prep. I was able to accomplish in-depth learning in all subject areas by focusing on strengthening my weakest areas. I knew I could bond with my teachers which was helpful to me. My friends shared with me they are not able to get this individual attention in the medium to large ACT PREP classes they have been attending.


Without the help of Naperville Tutoring, I do not believe this would have been possible.

Mr. and Mrs. Kaliher worked with me for only one month, and yet my science score improved
3 points! Their practice problems and tests stretched me, but they worked by my side to ensure my full understanding of the material. The test-taking strategies they taught gave me confidence on the day of the test, easing my nerves and anxiety, helping me to focus on the exam. I highly recommend Naperville Tutoring. They will work by your side to help reach your goals. They are great!

I must tell you that B would like to tell you her score herself, so I cannot do so at this time:) Sorry. What I do want to tell you was how B. had a smile on her face every time she came back from your house. She truly thinks you guys are warm, loving and special and appreciated your approach and kindness this past year. One could not ask for more for their child especially during the most stressful, demanding year of their young life. You really helped ease the tedious nature of the prep and the pressure.

The ACT PREP was very helpful for me because the tutoring was directed specifically to improve the areas I was weak in. They are very friendly at Naperville Tutoring and they explained everything thoroughly. It gave me confidence that I can improve my ACT score when I saw my practice scores going up with each practice test. Naperville Tutoring is very helpful is this process.

I just wanted to say thank you for your help preparing for the ACT! My first ACT test I took in February, before I came to you guys I got a 29. The first time I took it in April I got a 30, and my second time in April I got a 32! So thank you very much!

I wanted to thank you for your excellent tutoring of our son in preparation MVHSNapervilleTutoringACTPREPfor the ACT. I believe you helped him quite a bit. He had a positive attitude every time he came out of a session, and each week his confidence and comfort seemed to grow, particularly in the English and Reading sections, where he needed the most help. He feels that he did well on the test he took on April 14, as well as, the state-administered test the juniors took today at school. While we do not yet know his scores for either test, I feel it is not premature to thank you anyway for your solid, caring tutelage. I am very happy that we did not stay with the initial service we chose and decided instead to go with you. You can be certain I will recommend you to my friends and associates; in fact, I already have recommended you to a neighbor whose son is a freshman at NCHS.

I will inform you of my son's scores. Thank you again so much.

I wanted to let you know that S received a 27 on the ACT that he took on April 24. We are pleased with that, especially as his sub-score in English was a 27, a subject that was not at all his strong suit in the beginning. (He got a 10 out of a possible 12 in his writing score, which is the 99th percentile across the nation.

I sincerely believe you helped him quite a bit, and M and I and S thank you very much. I will indeed recommend you to my friends who are looking for good test tutors in the future!

I feel like the ACT PREP has been very helpful. With practice tests and classes, I have brought my composite score up 4 points, and specifically, 7 points in reading. This is the area where I struggled the most. Thanks so much for working and helping us improve our scores! I feel we worked hard in class and were not overwhelmed with things outside of class. It was a perfect mix. 

I got a 28 on my ACT which was a pretty good score for me! I couldn't have done it without all of your help!

Naperville Tutoring was an overall great experience. I am very confident now with the test strategies I was given to test successfully in the ACT. My score has greatly improved since starting this class by 4 points. Based on the practice tests, I am sure I will do great on the actual ACT test. I would recommend this class to friends.

I liked how we went over all our practice tests and always had the ability to ask questions. Being in a smaller setting allowed us to make sure that everyone understood before we moved on. I liked the Barron's activities and believe this book helped me to recognize test strategies sooner. This class gave me confidence for taking the ACT Test.

Z. K. | Student | Metea Valley High School

I enjoyed taking multiple tests during the class to see where I needed to improve more. I thought the Barron's materials were helpful and that it broadened my understanding of how to take the ACT test.

K. A. | Student | Metea Valley High School 

I like how we took many practice ACT tests and took the time to go over each wrong answer. I liked how it built confidence to take my ACT test. I liked Barron's and their test strategies. I would recommend this PREP class to students.

C. L. | Student | Metea Valley High School

I liked how we went through all subject area sections, not just my weaker areas, so that my score could go up in all of the subject sections. The supplementary Barron's book was extremely helpful. I would recommend this class to other students and parents.

Naperville Tutoring delivers results. After only 3 months of implementing the program, Naperville Tutoring has moved my son from a C- to an A. They have time tested techniques and a style that welcomes the child to want to learn. My son had been struggling to maintain a C for the last 2 years. With both parents working, dedicated time to our son’s math studies had become challenging. Naperville Tutoring sat down with us, put together a plan, worked with our crazy schedules, and delivered on their promises. Thank you Naperville Tutoring for your professionalism. You truly made a difference in my son’s life.
