Real reviewsAmazing, Caring Instructor!
I thought Geoff was amazing. He was one of the best who cared, was fun to talk to, and was always concerned about my work.
Instructor knows the SAT.
Geoff knew what he was doing and pointed out mistakes that I made while I was completing the SAT practice tests... pointing out these obscure mistakes that I would have never figured out on my own really helped improve my overall SAT score.
His methods of teaching were very effective
When I took my first SAT practice test, I was very disappointed with the results so I decided to study with a tutor. Fortunately, Mr. Caveney was my SAT tutor. His methods of teaching were very effective and he taught me approaches that I would have never thought of....When I first started studying, I never thought I would get a score of 1800. With Mr. Caveney's diligience, I got a 2030. Words cannot describe the elation that I felt when I saw my score.

Sidhi was born in Brookfield, Wisconsin, a suburb of Milwaukee. She was named a National Merit Finalist and National AP Scholar in high school and won the Cardinal Stritch piano festival as well as the Civic Music Association scholarship her senior year. A Classical Studies fanatic, Sidhi took first place in the Academic Decathlon and was named MVP of a Latin-based quiz bowl competition at the National Latin Convention. She went on to concentrate in Neuroscience at Brown University, where she was later inducted into the Sigma Xi honor society. Her first summer of college, Sidhi became a branch manager for Ivy Insiders, a program which allowed students to set up their own mini-tutoring companies. She was ecstatic to witness her help result in an average ACT score boost of 6 points for her students. Later in college, she also tutored for BRYTE, a student-led program which pairs undergraduate tutors with refugees from Southeast Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. While she is currently pursuing a film career in both acting and production in Los Angeles, Sidhi is excited to keep tutoring students to beat standardized tests!
Sidhi was very knowledgeable and even provided some of her own outside information when teaching us the roots of words and their meanings.
I loved her!
Sidhi was awesome - she presented everything in a way that made it easily learnable. I loved her! I feel so lucky to have gotten her, she was a huge blessing.
Sidhi is a great person and an excellent instructor! She is a very detail-oriented, diligent, pleasant, and caring teacher. She made the preparation course a completely stress-free experience.
