"Thank you Janis. Thank you Phyllis. Our daughter went up 4 points on her ACT exam and scored a 35 on English! We are just thrilled. You not only covered all of the test subject matter, you taught time management skills, and developed confidence and test savvy! Academic Achievers is the BEST!"

--KIF, parent, Archer School
"My daughter received her mid-term grades today, and I thought you might like to know that she received an A on her English exam. She also received an A on her re-write of the Dorian Grey essay. I'm mainly excited about the English exam because she had to write that in class and she felt so confident. She had finally learned how to trust herself and had the technique to do it."
--M.M, parent, Harvard-Westlake student
"With only a couple of weeks to study for a final in a math class, Janis knew exactly who to send us…the perfect tutor to get our son through his math final with a grade high enough to keep him on the football team. She was AMAZING. It wasn’t “we can’t do this in such a short period of time” as I expected, but “I’ll send you Mary, if anyone can do it she can” and she did!"
--Christine Porter, mom, Santa Monica High student
"AMAZING! Our son's SAT score went up 240 points after working with your tutor."
--Monica and Ted Hirschberger, parents, Santa Monica High School

"Sophie loved her KinderPrep tutor this summer. She had fun learning and became more confident in her abilities."
--Dayna Landry, CEO, CityMommy Inc.
"Our tutor was a perfect match for our daughter. She came prepared for the lesson, communicated well with my daughter, made a plan, and wrote up a report. We loved her!"
--Carol P, parent. Crossroads School
"My 4 year old started reading at 18 months and I needed a way for her to keep stimulated. Kinder Prep is the answer! Why wouldn't you want to learn from a former teacher who sent her kid to Harvard? Janis Adams, the CEO of Academic Achievers is thoughtful, knowledgeable and has the best tutors around."
--Kalika Yap, CEO, Citrus Studios
"I just want to express our thanks for nurturing my daughter's love of learning.
This was Zella's first experience with a tutor, and Millie's calm, relaxed manner made my daughter feel at ease from the first second.
I noticed that Millie deftly directed my daughter through fun math and reading activities, but still listened to my daughter's preferences such as playing a mathematics coin game more frequently that my daughter liked. This kind of personal care would be difficult to find elsewhere.
The combination of being at home and a truly skilled teacher helped my daughter to start reading simple words and sentences after only eight sessions!
I was concerned for my daughter being a "young" kindergartner -- she is not quite 5 yet -- but, now, I feel like she is much more prepared. When Zella hears that Millie is coming, she says, "yay!"
Thanks again, Academic Achievers."
--Miye and Zella Bennett Los Angeles, CA
"It was a great summer and the girls loved working with Katrina in KinderPrep. We would love to do this program again next summer."
--Debra Pressman, Sherman Oaks
