So, there have been very few times in my life that I don’t have the words to strongly enough recommend someone or something. But, such is the case with Joe Krupnick and his company The Krupnick Approach. Joe is, by miles, the best test preparation expert and finest tutor I've ever been around. With five children, four of whom have completed or currently attend high school and three of whom have taken college placement exams…I have more data than most…over many years! We've sampled all types, all places and all people, but the numbers speak for themselves…and it ain't close my friends. Joe has a system and approach that result in jaw-dropping improvement. Better yet, he loves his work. And the best news is that I've known Joe for over 20 years and vouch for his character and honesty. He's an all star professional and an all star human being. Joe earned both his undergraduate and Ph.D degrees from Harvard University and in addition to his research and writing, he LOVES tutoring students—and helping them conquer college placement exams. His academic pedigree is clearly unique. And, his patience, motivational and encouraging ways resulted in our children actually looking forward to working with Joe. If your child has any anxiety about the ACT or is looking to dramatically improve his/her score, this might be the best contact you could make. Additionally, tutoring in difficult high school subjects isn't difficult for Joe! If you are one of our friends that have used Joe, feel free to chime in as well. He's just the best.
