What our graduates are saying...

Caleigh C.

ACT 31 Composite
GRE 158 Verbal/153 Quantitative

"I have had many great tutors in the past, but no one can compare to Anders. He is the most encouraging, patient, organized, and passionate tutor I have had in my life. He didn’t just help me reach my desired ACT score; he helped me exceed it. His services were so efficient and beneficial that I decided to reach out to him, four years later, for help with the GRE. Whatever goal you may have, Anders will help you accomplish it because he genuinely wants you to succeed, and will go above and beyond to make sure that you do."

Alex S.

GRE 161 Verbal/160 Quantitative

"Anders is absolutely amazing! He had high energy, enthusiasm, patience and more confidence in me than I did. He acutely understands the challenges associated with studying for a big math exam – such as GRE or GMAT- for someone with learning differences and does a great job of breaking down all the steps necessary for success. The process that one applies to solving math problems – what Anders calls 'quantitative hygiene' – is as important to beating these tests as the knowledge of theory and Anders explains that process extremely well. Above all, he is very responsive and overall, a pleasure to work with! I highly recommend to anyone looking to improve his or her quant or verbal score."

Anders Bruce

Anders first entered the tutoring world in 2012 as a Writing Fellow at James Madison University. After earning his B.A. in Writing, Rhetoric, and Technical Communication in 2013, he started tutoring for the SAT and quickly expanded his repertoire to include the ACT, GRE, GMAT, and MCAT CARS. Since then, he has spent hundreds of hours in the classroom teaching group prep courses and thousands of hours tutoring one-on-one. Anders has also written GMAT practice questions for a well-known test prep company.

 

Anders excels at maximizing the scores of students at every level. He specializes in techniques that help “bad test-takers” to decode the test and achieve scores that reflect their full potential, including students with ADD/ADHD and other learning differences. He has also worked extensively with student athletes who must hit a certain score threshold for admission to their schools of choice.

 

When preparing students for the SAT and ACT, Anders is adept at simplifying “test math.” He teaches a core set of techniques and trains students to recognize the right technique for each problem. On the verbal side, Anders teaches a logical and linear approach that breaks down reading comprehension and grammar into easy, predictable steps. His SAT students consistently improve by 100-250 points overall, and his ACT students typically improve their composite scores by 3 or 4 points.

 

For GMAT and GRE, Anders teaches an innovative method of reading comprehension and argument analysis that applies to both tests. He also teaches test-specific techniques for grammar on the GMAT and vocabulary on the GRE. These Verbal methods are coupled with Quantitative techniques that work for ANYONE.

 

Whether you are still earning your bachelor’s or have been in the workforce for decades, Anders knows how to make you “get it.” He breaks each complicated concept into a few easy baby-steps that you can use every time. Students who prepare with Anders for these exams generally improve their performance by 20-25 percentiles, each, on Quantitative and Verbal. Anders is available to work face-to-face with students in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area and online with students anywhere.
