"Yale on a Air Force ROTC Scholarship. Chris made the difference."

"I enrolled my daughter in the most recent SAT and ACT prep. Initially she wasn't happy to have been enrolled in a prep class after school but after the first few classes, she felt more prepared when recently taking the PSAT. She noticed that the strategies of answering questions learned in the prep classes helped her through the exam. Chris' prices are affordable and it was money was well spent."

"After trying to study SAT on our own we hit the score ceiling and started to think that we would have to sacrifice and give up our college of choice. We stumbled across this website and had to decide between this and a more well-known national chain. We are so glad we chose Chris...First and foremost it was more personal and tailored to my son's needs than a national chain could ever be. Second, Chris was great - very patient and understanding and took the time to understand my son's strengths and weaknesses so that he could target the most efficient way to maximize his score. Finally the "proof is in the pudding"..my son literally received 50 points higher than his highest Critical Reading score, and 60 points higher than his highest Math score...my son has achieved an SAT score high enough to receive WUE (out-of-state discounted tuition) at his college of choice...We sincerely believe that this would not have been possible without Chris' help and are deeply indebted to him."

"I have used tutoring services in the past and this by far is the best. Chris became part of our family. My grandkids looked forward to him coming. He helped my daughter beyond what his services included. His way of teaching is easy to understand and he made it fun to learn. Thanks Chris!"

"Mr. Chris Okumoto is a very effective SAT tutor. The moment I've met him there was an instant connection of friendliness, enthusiasm, and willing to help me reach my goal. He is a professional educator who takes your learning to a personal level, understanding your needs and wants in learning. Mr. Chris focuses on the main goal; in result my SAT scores raised extravagantly, accomplishing not only one but two full-ride Military Scholarships, and a chance to be part of one the top Aeronautical Universities in America. Today there are not many educators like Mr. Chris, whom never gave up in helping me reach a successful level of accomplishment, without him I could have never been a step closer to becoming a military officer. Thank you so much, and 'High Five'."

"Mr. Chris Okumoto’s personal and professional interest to assist my daughter to prepare for the SAT was rather instrumental. His personal ability and availability in scheduling and executing an effective learning plan and  atmosphere  was quickly assessed as to attain and affect the learning curve specific to the subject areas of deficiencies. Because of Mr. Okumoto’s pleasant and candid attitude and his interest to teach, we, as parents and daughter, established a very effective and personal relationship, which yielded significant dividends. As a result, my daughter was the recipient of two military scholarships, the U.S. Navy and U.S. Army ROTC scholastic awards, as well as acceptance into three very lucrative universities. I can confidently attest to Mr. Okumoto’s dedication and effectiveness, and would enthusiastically recommend him to other families with the same or similar needs."
