"My son benefited tremendously from his tutorial sessions with Dr. Donnelly. Not only did he grow in confidence, but he was given the tools to expertly tackle his high school entrance exams. Dr. Donnelly is patient, consistent and totally committed to the welfare of his students and as a result of his thorough and knowledgeable sessions my son was accepted to all of the schools to which he applied. We are enormously grateful and cannot recommend Dr. Donnelly enough!"

"Dr. Donnelly is simply the best in his field. I came to him just three weeks before my exam in desperate need of a strategy to improve my CARS score. In just three lessons, I jumped 30 percentiles in my practice exams on that section and ultimately scored in the 95th percentile on the MCAT.

Dr. Donnelly is professional, kind, patient, and so willing to do everything he can to support his students in succeeding on the MCAT. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone in need of strategizing their test preparation!"

"Stuart is the kindest, most patient MCAT tutor I have ever encountered. No matter what your background is, whether you've had MCAT training in the past or none at all, Stuart's one-on-one approach is able cater to the learning speed at which you need. This also enables you to pick and choose your areas of weakness. He is also extremely good about scheduling a time that is fit for you. I worked full-time and was still able to meet Stuart for weekly lessons after I got off work.

Lastly, Stuart has a very comprehensive selection of MCAT material (Kaplan, ExamKrackers, Princeton Review, Berkeley Review), thus allowing him to pick and choose certain passages that he believes would be the most helpful. Altogether, I'm very glad I found Stuart!"

K.S.F., Los Angeles, CA (online student).
