Over the years, Dr. Donnelly has helped literally hundreds of students to achieve academic success and to improve their standardized test scores significantly. A small sample of testimonials from some of his recent students is listed below:
"Dr. Donnelly's private tutoring stands apart from other mainstream/commercial review programs because he isolates an individual's weaknesses and tailors a successful review and test-taking strategy that conforms to an individual's needs -- rather than those of the masses. Dr. Donnelly was able to quickly understand and dissect my thought process in order to help me break old habits and establish stronger test-taking skills so I could get that higher score I wanted" - Jacqui S.
"Hello Dr. Donnelly, I just wanted to let you know that Lev, your student, was admitted to Harvard this fall. His marks and his SAT ACT scores were solidly within the acceptable range...your contribution was invaluable. Many thanks". - Anne L. , (very satisfied parent).
"I rate Stuart as an excellent teacher. He inspires the brilliant students, but also encourages those who may find certain topics quite difficult. His lessons are well structured...and it is obvious that he thoroughly enjoys his work In conclusion, Stuart is a talented and a dedicated teacher". - Mary G Lawton - Head Mistress of the French International School (Hong Kong)
"The fundamentals I learned from Dr. Donnelly were very helpful. I received the one on one attention that I did not receive in the Kaplan prep test. I did not feel embarrassed to ask basic questions. Dr. Donnelly was very patient with explaining concepts in detail until I understood. Additionally, he was always available via email or phone." - Neelu, (NYC)
"Dr. Donnelly is a wonderful teacher. He is quick to pinpoint weaknesses and, in many cases, turn them into strengths. He always has a structured lesson plan and pertinent homework assignments and puts aside time in the lesson to go over "trouble problems" from the previous lesson. I highly recommend taking a prep course with him. His patience, humor, and kindheartedness makes an otherwise uncomfortable standardized test almost enjoyable" - Mia P. - student, NYC

I recommend him to you without hesitation." - E. H. Clements, Head of Mathematics - French International School
"Dr. Donnelly has a real knack for explaining topics in plain English and for making them come alive with real-life examples.

If I need to prepare for another standardized test, I will definitely contact Dr. Donnelly" - Pauline E. - student, NYC
