Rich's knowledge of the SAT is outstanding and he gives students an organized approach to taking the test. We highly recommend this tutor.

My daughter met with Rich (Rick) for the first time last week. It's too soon to report results but I can say without a doubt that he assessed her capability quickly and had clear cut goals, and homework. She came home and said she knew what she needed to do for the following week. He provides homework which I know my daughter will take seriously. He was also good about listing his availability and letting us know when his busy schedule would improve. He tutors from his office which had a professional feel with glass doors!

My wife and I wanted a tutor for our son that had experience with the SAT/ACT. We were blessed to find Rich K. Yes, he is pricey, but trust me, its well worth it if you want your son or daughter to succeed. Rich, not only tutors for the exams, he actually takes them himself. We interviewed a bunch of tutors before we found Rich. They all claimed they had the best tutoring results, but how can you claim you have the best results and never sit for the exams annually. He took the time to understand what the problems our son was having and created a lesson plan for him. Our son had his sights set on a tier 2 school before tutoring sessions with Rich. We are proud to say that he was accepted to 9 out of 11 schools he applied, 3 ranked in the top 30 according to US News and World Report. It could not have happened with Rich K. He is challenging, detailed and extremely patient. My sons score went up 5 points from the first ACT score after tutoring with Rich K. If you want your child to get it right the first time, choose Rich K.

Rich is preparing our daughter to take the ACT's. He is building her confidence simply by being a great teacher and empowering her with this knowledge. He is well versed in all subjects. Highly recommend!
- Megan S. from Berwyn, PA
Very happy to have Rich as a tutor for my son. Rich is a kind, patient and knowledgeable tutor with clear explanation. He also thought of my financial plan by providing his suggestion.

Rich has been helping with SAT preparation. He is a patient tutor with real insight into how the think about approaching the SAT
- John D. from West Chester, PA
Rich did an excellent job. He is a wonderful teacher. My daughter would like to learn more strategies for her SAT English Reading.
- Nancy T. from Chadds Ford, PA
Rich provided targeted tutoring for ACT with only one month notice before the test date. He was supportive and encouraging, also very efficient and adept with using technology for remote sessions. He was exceptionally responsive -- once he responded to an e-mailed question about a math problem within 5 minutes, including a customized video and virtual whiteboard with the solution! Highly recommend Rich.
- Julie H. from Wilmington, DE
We utilized Rich K's services and from Day 1 our student was impressed as well as motivated to learn that she can overcome that dread of SAT Day. Rich provided hints and instructions, practice tests and strategies that helped her exceed her expectations and boosted her confidence - well done!

My son will be taking the SAT for the first time this Saturday. He was not at all interested in doing any SAT prep work. When I mentioned getting him a tutor, he was not pleased. However, after a few sessions with Rich, I asked what he thought. He stated that Rich taught him more in these sessions than his 2+ years at his private high school. I could see his confidence build after each session and his scores improving steadily. He was also motivated to do the prep work because of the progress he was making. Rich not only has great insight on how to prepare a student for the SAT, he is very professional, kind and patient. He even came to the house when they couldn't meet at the library due to weather conditions. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a tutor--just wish I had known about him for my two older children. Thanks so much, Rich!!

I try to explain math concepts to my daughter and I pull my hair out and she gets very frustrated as well. Rich accomplishes more in 1.5 hours/week than I do with endless hours. My daughter says that he explains things in easy-to-understand terms. A great teacher.
- Troy W. from Westchester, PA
Rich has a very calm demeanor, is patient and worked extremely well with my son. His ACT and SAT scores improved significantly after 8 hours with Rich. He is good at replying to parent questions, and was very responsive and encouraging when I sent him the test scores. I would highly recommend Rich, and will definitely be setting up sessions with my younger two in the next two years.

Rich is an awesome, awesome tutor. I started out with a 2150 SAT score (CR: 750, M: 680, WR: 720) and an 31 on the ACT (E: 34, M:30, R:35, S:26) and over the course of three months, he brought my ACT score up to a 34 (E:35, M:30, R:33, S:32), then got me to an 800 on Math 2, and after studying with him over the summer, I received a 2340 on the October SATs (CR:800, M:750, WR:790). He was very patient with me and very straight forward. We used only official study guides and a few Rich-sanctioned practice tests, and he was willing to sit and explain every math/science/reading/writing section I couldn't get my head around. After teaching me all the tips and tricks so that I could get consistently high scores, he was still willing to read through my essays and listen to me explain things I already understood just for my benefit. Rich was also happy to read through a college essay or two when we ran out of test-problems to go through during a session and never ceased to be positive and encouraging. Rich is a genuinely nice guy, and I've recommended him to all of my underclassmen friends who are squaring up to take the SATs/ACTs soon. His promise to get your scores up is 100% true plus there's an added bonus of having a friendly guy teaching you math (or whatever it is you need to know). If you're in the area, Rich is worth much more than he charges.

My daughter worked with Rich for about a year on her ACT preparation. He proved to be a talented and very reliable tutor! He was always on time and provided extra test questions as needed. We have experienced several other tutors in the past, one in particular from a big name outfit in Bryn Mawr and this has by far been a much better experience! Rich is very kind and patient, besides being extremely knowledgeable in math. He kept things low key and I would say he instills a quiet sense of confidence. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for such a tutor! Thanks for everything Rich! We'll call if we need you again.
- Jyl C. from Newtown Square, PA
We just finished up our last session with Rich and have been very pleased with his services. He is patient, thorough, thoughtful, and a terrific teacher. My son takes the SATs on Saturday so we haven't seen the results of his efforts yet, but Rich has given him confidence and calm to get him through it. I highly recommend Rich.
- Mary Ann H. from Media, PA
Rich has been a great tutor. He quickly identifies areas of weakness and creates a lesson plan and homework which is tailored to the individual student.
- Christine S. from West Chester, PA
Rich is the best tutor we've found, and we've tried more than a few. His skill and patience helped our son excel on the ACT, scoring in the 98th percentile nationally. Though our son's bright enough that he might have performed well on his own, he would never have achieved this potentially life-changing result without Rich's hard work.
- Colleen S. from Kennett Square, PA
Rich is able to identify our son's areas of weakness and quickly focus in on those areas. Rich also provides homework assignments which reinforce the sessions.
- Henry K. from Wilmington, DE
Rich provided tremendous tutoring, guidance, and advice for our son through the SAT/ACT preparation process. After 2 months of tutoring, our son improved his SAT scores 250 points from his initial baseline test. Rich is patient, intuitive, and smart. We highly recommend his services to any child who strives to improve their standardized testing results.
- Ned B. from West Chester, PA
We have used Rich for my daughter's SAT Prep for A few session this past spring. He was always on time, well prepared, and my daughter always came away feeling that she really learned something. Well we finally got her results and she increased over 200 points on the SAT's and puts her in a range to allow for merit scholarships. Well worth the time and money. I can not recommend Rich enough!! Skip the large classes and hire Rich, very affordable and well worth the time and money. He always leaves behind study tips and practice problems. I highly recommend him!! Matter of fact we may use him in the fall on the ACT's, just hope he is available.
