"Dr. Donnelly is patient and supportive and is clear when explaining questions that were challenging to me. He also urged me to work out questions on my own, which was extremely helpful. He created an atmosphere in which I looked forward to the challenge of each section on the practice tests, and I definitely felt more confident taking the test. If I need to prepare for another standardized test, I will definitely contact Dr. Donnelly."

"Dr. Donnelly's rates are very reasonable, his location convenient and he was able to accommodate my varied schedule. After a handful of sessions in which he patiently worked with me to target the specific areas I could improve in given the limited time, I was able to reach the needed score to start college in September, thanks to Dr. Donnelly."
