This means your last day will be 12-3:40pm

My son has worked with Fractal Academy tutors to prepare for several different tests including the SAT and the Math 2 and Chemistry SAT subject tests. What I love about Fractal is that they are not a big chain tutoring shop. The service you get is personal! They were willing to change my son's tutoring time when he ran into conflicts with his busy extracurricular schedule. They were able to switch the focus of tutoring depending on what his needs were. Both Kevin and Dan are extremely knowledgeable about the content and the format of the exams. My son was very prepared! His scores were excellent and improved dramatically over just a few months. Couldn't be happier!

I feel like Fractal Academy is a partner in the college application process with us. Whatever we need, they have someone who can help!

Kevin’s a great guy, he knows EVERYTHING about Organic Chemistry. Fractal Academy is an awesome tutoring center and I continued to work with Kevin through skype after going back to college. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to get that extra boost in their studies.

I worked with both Kevin and Justina to prepare for the MCAT, and they were extremely helpful, attentive, and supportive during every step of my prep! Kevin and Justina are intelligent, hard-working teachers who are passionate not only about the material they teach, but also about the success of their students. Kevin is awesome at explaining complex chemistry and physics concepts. Together we would go through passages and questions to ensure that I had not only a complete understanding of specific topics, but also a strategy to approach difficult problems. Justina is great at developing time-management and triage strategies for CARS; she took the time to go through each paragraph of every passage I went over with her to make sure I knew what to focus on and how best to utilize my time and knowledge. I honestly do not think I would have felt as confident and well-prepared as I did for my exam if I had not worked with them both. I highly recommend their services to anyone who is interested in taking the MCAT!

I sought out help from Kevin for my MCAT preparation. I had taken the test once before and had scored poorly, but Kevin was confident that we would be able to get my score up to my desired range. I had always struggled with Math and Physics and this is where Kevin helped me the most. Physics concepts became simpler and I had wished that I had known about Kevin when I was taking these courses in college. Kevin and I systematically tackled every chem and physics topic that was tested on the MCAT and broke down test questions which I previously would never have been able to get right.
For bio, I worked with Yayoi who simplified biochemistry and highlighted important concepts to remember. She also helped me with testing strategies which I was able to apply to the CARS and psych sections as well.
Long story short, with the help of Kevin and Yayoi, I was able to increase my MCAT score by an incredible 16 points and was able to get accepted to my top choice medical schools. Words can’t describe the impact Kevin and Yayoi made on my application. I only wish I had found Fractal sooner!
