“I tried studying on my own for the GMAT to get into an MBA program. Unfortunately, things did not go well and I was making no progress on the practice exams. So I called Academic Advantage and things started to turnaround. They really knew the test and my practice scores went up from 480 into the 600’s. All their advice and tricks helped as I ended up with a 680 on my GMAT!”

"We were seeking a tutor to work with our son to help him with all parts of the SAT. Not only did we find Seth to be well-qualified and knowledgeable, but very professional and very caring. Our son took the SAT test again this October and his total score improved 100 points. In total, he increased his SAT score a total of 470 with Seth, and we were thrilled! "We found Seth to be a fine, dedicated teacher. He is certainly one-of-a-kind and we are grateful to have had the opportunity of working with him. Needless to say, we highly recommend Seth. ”

“Our son had nearly given up on the ASVAB exam after he scored a 32. You patiently worked with him and he saw there was light at the end of the tunnel. All of a sudden he started to see that he could understand the material and succeed on the test. He passed the test with a 70 and got into the military.”

“Thanks so much for helping Julie, you are totally awesome. Her math grade improved from an F to a B and consumer finance from a C to an A!”

“I worked with Academic Advantage for over a month for my GRE’s and was able to raise my scores up over 200 points! I found their methods to be very insightful when it came to thoughts about the test and their methods proved to be very helpful in the areas I was having problems with. I highly recommend them to anyone preparing for the GRE or any other test.”

“Seth helped my son raise his ACT scores, the equivalent of 510 points on the SAT. Without his help pushing my son, he would not have been able to accomplish this great feat. Thank you, Seth, for everything!”

Prior to tutoring with Seth, I had scored a pretty flat 1800 (reading 610, math 570, and writing 620) on my PSAT’s. I spent about two months under his tutelage before taking the first actual SAT on which I scored a 1920 (reading 620, math 610, and writing 690). I was extremely pleased with this 120 point jump, so I continued working with him for about another month until the next SAT. I just received my scores today and I made a 2030 (reading 660, math 670 and writing 700). This was another 110 point jump. Altogether Seth helped me improve my initial score by 230 points! To me, that is an enormous improvement. I gave all the credit in the world to Seth for his helpful hints and strategies for the entire SAT process. Thank you so much again, Seth.

"Scholastics have always been paramount at the Medina household. We hold our children responsible for good grades and push them to always deliver their best and certainly be above-average. The choice of tutors is not a subject we take lightly. "Mr. Hochman started tutoring my son, a sophomore going into his junior year at Florida Atlantic University (FAU), about a year ago. Since then, he has become far more organized, diligent, and motivated. More concretely, he just concluded a semester with an A average, his first while pursuing university studies. "We believe that Mr. Hochman’s patient, gentle assertive style, own knowledge base and social intelligence were the keys in promoting the academic turnaround. We highly recommend Mr. Hochman as a tutor."

"At first, I thought I didn't need SAT/ACT tutoring. I figured that I was smart enough to handle whatever these tests threw at me. After getting my PSAT score back (199) I was wondering why my scores weren't reflecting this confidence. My parents heard about Seth from one of their friends, and they scheduled an appointment as soon I expressed my concern. "Now, I'm going to zoom forward to the results. I just got my second round of test scores back and I received an SAT score of 2310 and a straight 36 ACT score. The only reason I was able to do so well was because of Seth's help."

"Before working with Seth, I scored no more than a 1500 on the SATs, but afterwards I was able to raise my score over 400 points and I now qualify for a 100% Bright Futures Scholarship. My improvement is incredible and I couldn’t thank him enough."

"I learned a lot of interesting facts as a result of my tutoring with Seth. I now know much more about the stock market and smart ways to invest my money from our Accounting and Economics classes. My reading level has improved a great deal and I have expanded my vocabulary. My writing level has improved considerably, as well. Now I truly feel prepared for college."

"I was one of Seth’s tutored students for the GRE exam. I first took a Kaplan course and did not earn an impressive score. I scored a verbal score of 530 and a quantitative score of 480. I then went on to look for a private tutor. I wanted someone who could really improve my quantitative score at a reasonable price. After doing six sessions with Seth, I noticed my score really increasing using real ETS practice tests. "Seth kept me motivated and focused on the task at hand as well as giving me great pointers on how to succeed on the GRE. In turn, with his help, I earned a successful GRE score: Verbal 570 and Quantitative score of 650, totaling 1220. He was worth every penny I spent and I strongly recommend him to anyone who would need help on this particular test!"

“Adam helped me increase my score on the ACT from a 19 to a 28, or the SAT equivalent of a 510 point increase. My scores increased in all sections along with the essay. As a result, I received a 100% Bright Futures Scholarship and got into Florida State University! Thank You.”
S. Friedman,Boca Raton, FL
"We have been working with Academic Advantage and Adam for several months. Our daughter has Aspergers, OCD and ADD. One of Adam's many qualifications is that he has a keen sense of knowing just when to "push" our daughter to get more out of her and when to "back off" still keeping our daughter on task, making the best use of their time together. This is not an easy task. Adam brings in a nice mix of academics and real world knowledge that has been a great source of support for our daughter and our family. I do not hesitate to recommend him for general or special education students."

“We just received the acceptance letter from University of Florida. We want to thank you for all your help on SAT’s, ACT’s, and especially the college essay. We don’t know what we would have done without you!”

"Before Academic Advantage, I was completely stressed out and didn't know where to turn to. The challenges of being a teacher for every subject, making sure all the curriculum needs were met and motivating my kids to learn at the same time was a daunting task. Upon a recommendation, I called Seth at Academic Advantage, who referred us to Leondra. Leondra was excellent! She knew the curriculum for the schools, was very organized and knew how to motivate my kids. Most importantly, she put me at ease and showed me this could be done. Leondra established a productive learning relationship with my kids, where sessions were focused and the kids enjoyed learning. She was patient and observant, realizing readiness and helping my family overcome fears and previous defeating experiences!"

“I am very pleased to be able to let perspective students and parents know how helpful Seth Hochman was as an SAT/ ACT instructor. My son sought out Seth’s help in this area and was the recipient of a great deal of instruction, helpful hints and abundant review of materials. As a result, my son raised his scores 300 points and went into both exams confident and knowledgeable. He truly reaped the benefits as he got into all of his top choice schools and, most importantly, his first choice. "I do recommend that your son or daughter listens very carefully to his advice and study, study, study. It’s not magic! Seth, however, truly can make a difference. ”
