“We were so thrilled to receive (our son’s) ISEE Scores from this past Saturday just now- as you predicted, and because of your help, both learning new strategies and content and skills, he crushed it!”
“My son took the Sexton SAT class in the fall and did better than I expected on his 1st (and maybe last) test in Dec. He said they gave a lot of great tips and the class was as enjoyable as a SAT class could reasonably be. Worth it.”
“Merry’s awesome… think the fact that she could even talk sports with just sealed the deal! I saw renewed energy with him this morning and he’s excited. I’m coming to believe that Sexton Test Prep is magic.”
“Danny is amazing! He is very engaging and easy to talk to. My son loved how well he explained things and answered questions. Danny was able to set specific goals with my son and help him meet them on a weekly basis, without making it overwhelming. He is smart and very adept at trying out different strategies with his students. We can’t wait for Danny to work with our younger son in the Fall. (my son’s) ACT composite score went up 5 points.”
“I wanted to write you a very much overdue thank you to let you know that our daughter scored a 31 (up 4 points from 27) on her June ACT. We were thrilled with our tutor and found her very easy to work with and personable. I overheard many sessions and she upped our daughter’s confidence in many ways… I’m so glad I contacted you after learning of Sexton Prep on What’s Up Wellesley. I will continue to recommend you and spread the word!”
A HUGE THANK YOU to all of you at Sexton Prep. Both my children have prospered tremendously from your services over the past few years. Simply put, no student is the same. One of my son’s took the ACT and the other the SAT. It’s a little bit of a process and can seem overwhelming. With that said, the Sexton Team simplified the entire process from beginning to end. It all starts by identifying which test they recommend your son or daughter take. Should your son or daughter take the ACT or SAT??? No worries! …Sarah will guide you and steer you in the right direction. From there, ALL the tutors are AWESOME and will do everything in their power to achieve your goal and improve your score. They are great at accommodating your schedule the best they can. Whether it’s Merry, Laura, Bryan or Ben your guaranteed to get 100 % out of them. Most recently, Drew improved 280 points on SAT to obtain a score of 1300 (from 1020 PSAT)… A huge accomplishment for him and one we are very proud of. More importantly, a score he feels great about.
Again, a HUGE THANK YOU TO THE ENTIRE SEXTON TEAM!!! Could not have done it without you.

“My Natick HS son is a good student, but a nervous test taker. So, I started researching different ACT test prep services, and was impressed by the timely and thoughtful communications I received from Sexton Test Prep. Sarah Sexton sent us a mock ACT for my son to take which Sarah scored to determine a baseline – a disappointing 21. I worked with Sarah and my son to choose among several tutors (great bios available online) and decided on Kate. My son met 1:1 with Kate at the Wellesley library once a week for 12 weeks, and Kate was very flexible if my son had to reschedule. She kept me in the loop about how his strengths and challenges were progressing. When all was said and done, my son achieved a 28 composite ACT score, a vast 7-point improvement. This improved score resulted in him being accepted into some of his favorite colleges that had previously been out of reach. We’ll soon know where he’s headed in the Fall, and I’m definitely going to use Sexton Test Prep for my sophomore-aged son when he’s ready. This not insignificant investment is worth every penny. In fact, my son’s improved ACT score automatically qualified him for a $24K scholarship at one college and $40K at another!”
“…That is an improvement of 160 points over his pre-test in February. He honestly couldn’t have accomplished this without (his tutor’s) help and we are incredibly grateful for all of her assistance and support. (Our son) told us that he thought he got a perfect score on the math when he finished. I know that before working with (his tutor) he never felt that confidence. Thank you again!”

“Sexton prep provided our daughter with the kind of warm and personalized support she needed to get the scores she hoped for but never dreamed she would get. She went from a 25 on her first ACT test to a 32. Her wonderful tutor saw her potential and encouraged her to work for the results she wanted.”
Thanks for your service this year. My kids enjoyed working with our tutor and look forward to getting his help next year. I wish I’d found you earlier.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for all of you work with me this summer with the SAT II and the ACT. I just had my admissions interview at Harvard yesterday and they said everything looks great for a likely letter in October and official admission in December!

I’m not sure if I ever let you know that our tutor worked out great for (our daughter’s) Math 2 test. She was able to increase her score by 100 points!!!I have just recommended you to a friend of mine. I’m sure we will require your services again for our son who is a freshman now.

(Our son) thought you were awesome!!!!!! He said working with you was great! He really loves how you teach. Wow! Thank you so much!!!!

“Thank you so much for taking great care of my client. He got a 30 on the ACT, which was significantly higher than anyone dared hope. Beyond BookSmart trusts Sexton Tutoring because your coaching is great, and you get results!”

“We have worked with two extremely effective tutors from Sexton Test Prep and they are always on time and well-prepared. The tutors are well-versed with respect to the content and pacing of all of the standardized tests and come up with a plan customized to the way your child learns and targeted to overcome any deficit areas they may have. I have found that using a tutor from Sexton Test Prep takes a lot of pressure of what can be a very stressful time for students. In short, well worth the investment.”

“Our student managed to earn an 800 on his English Lit SAT. Woo hoo! We knew he had it in him. He just needed the right guidance, and Andrew was the perfect fit, role model, mentor for him. Thanks so much.”
– Brookline Parent
Ben is an exceptional tutor! My son went up 400 pts. between his PSAT score and his SAT score with his help. Ben has a calm and authoritative demeanor and my hard to please teen actually looked forward to his time with him.
In addition, from a parents perspective, he was a pleasure to work with, always prompt, professional, and courteous.

“I got a 2190 (from 1780)! Thank you so much. You are the Mr. Miyagi of test prep.”
“I would like to give you a HUGE thank you for all the work you did to prepare me for the May SAT, 2013. You had a good, concrete strategy for every type of problem. You also explained everything in a way that made sense to me. Most importantly, you helped me to receive a much higher score. You are clearly an expert on the SAT reasoning test.

“Thank you so much for all you have done for me over the past two years. Your sheer genius, patience, and hilariousness are unparalleled. I have no idea where I’d be without you.”
“Our daughter actually, really looks forward to your tutoring. In fact, you are the only tutor she has felt this way about working with, so I think you have gained her trust. I think (despite her struggling with the subject) there is a good dynamic here working with you, as you have been very encouraging of her ability to do the math.”
“Thought you would like to know how (our daughter) did on the Nov SAT math. She got a score of 690 (from 560) so we are very pleased.”
