“I am so impressed with your process. It is truly different from other test prep companies. The tutor he has worked with has been excellent - he has pushed him, encouraged him, and has really prepared him for the test. You've taken note of his goals and have helped him to achieve them. The communication you provide has been excellent for both parents and kid. I have already recommended Swell to a number of families. Thank you!” Parent, Marin Academy Class of 2019

I highly recommend Swell!” Parent, Brentwood Class of 2019

“Swell provided me with a manageable amount of SAT practice to work into my week at school so I would not have to cram before the test. We did a mix of facts and learning skills, as well as practice tests. When I took the SAT I felt prepared and better than I have ever felt going into a standardized test.” Student, Cate Class of 2019

“After undergoing months of tutoring with another company with very little in the way of results, we switched our daughter to Swell at the advice of friends. Not only did our daughter's scores jump, but the process was much more pleasant. Having just one tutor for all SAT subjects, rather than multiple tutors like with the previous service, was much more effective and helped our daughters bond better with her tutor. Swell is easy to work with and easy to schedule sessions and practice tests with. They also provide much more feedback than we received from our daughter's previous tutoring company. We highly recommend Swell!” Parent, Convent Class of 2019

“Our student wanted help strengthening the weakest part of her college application -- the standardized test. The Swell approach -- the structure and the tutor -- enabled her to put her best foot forward.” Parent, Convent Class of 2019

“I started out feeling really unconfident in my ability to do well on the ACT. I studied with my tutor Andrew, who was amazing at helping me really understand and feel comfortable with the test. Andrew was so helpful and amazing, and I ended up raising my score by 5 points!” Student, Gateway Class of 2019

“Naomi is a talented and dedicated tutor and runs a great test prep service. Communicates with parents and kids, plans a reasonable preparation schedule and gets kids geared-up! When something is out of her specialty area, she refers to one of her excellent cadre of other tutors. Pricey, but she helps kids achieve great progress! She was excellent on communicating back if I had questions, too.” Parent, Lick-Wilmerding Class of 2019

“Swell is a wonderful tutoring resource to prepare for the SAT. My son loves working with his tutor and his test taking skills have improved exponentially. I highly recommend them!” Parent, Lick-Wilmerding Class of 2019

“Naomi is excellent as a tutor herself, and also excellent at knowing when to turn a child's tutoring over to someone else. Having the experience to know when to switch gears and having enough tutors plus knowledge of their specific skills to make such recommendations is the more difficult quality to find in a tutoring service. Her recommendations were spot-on. I say, defer to Naomi's strategies, including on the timing of SAT or ACTs. Overall, extremely happy with the tutoring, communication to parents and kid, and the results. Somewhat pricey, but worth it, I feel!” Parent, Lick-Wilmerding Class of 2019

“My tutor was very helpful and my score improved after just a few weeks!” Student, Lick-Wilmerding Class of 2019

“We have used many tutors over the years and had a truly disappointing experience with our older son using one of your competitors for ACT prep. What a different process with Swell - Jon and Naomi were always very engaged in the process, were always available and I felt that they were real resources. My son really adored working with Jon and really respected Jon's thoughts, ideas and intellect. As much as he hated the process of standardized test taking, it was great to see my son truly embrace his tutor's help and feel confident that he was being given sound guidance. I think he really just wanted to out-score his tutor and was in awe of Jon's mastery of this test! As a parent, I felt so supported by Naomi, who really listened to our needs and was prompt with support and answers whenever we had questions. I can't say enough good things about this group!” Parent, Marin Academy Class of 2019

“Both of my children worked with Naomi and were very happy with the results of their test scores. Naomi is patient, bright, compassionate, incredibly organized and a great teacher. From a parent's perspective she became a partner for me in the sometimes complicated world of standardized tests helping me to navigate logistics. There is no one more competent and effective as Naomi in the field, and our family feels very fortunate to have gotten to know her. It was a delight as a parent to work with her and my children enjoyed working with her as well. The only downside of my son achieving a satisfactory score is that we will no longer be engaging with Naomi!” Parent, Marin Academy Class of 2019

Both of our tutors were so easy going yet professional at the same time. My son felt very at ease with them. I would highly recommend Swell to any friends in need.” Parent, Redwood HS Class of 2019

“My daughter’s first ACT score was a 21. Before we met Naomi and her team at Swell, we talked to another company about potential tutoring. The other company felt they could get her score to a 26. We decided to go with Swell because their approach was more personal. Glad we did. My daughter just got a 32 on the ACT. The team at Swell took the time to really learn my daughter’s learning style and tutor her in a way that made sense to her. THANK YOU!” Parent, Redwood HS Class of 2019
