Barry Goldberg - Fantastic tutor, great results.
I started tutoring with Barry Goldberg after I took the SAT for the first time. The second time I took the test, I went up 100 points in each subject thanks to Barry's methods & techniques. Barry helped make the SAT seem less scary and mysterious and actually brought to light how simple it really could be. The one-on-one tutoring sessions were in the comfort of my own home for an hour each week. We'd go over each subject and do practice tests. I'd also have assigned work to be completed for the next week. Barry and I would check my work and discuss how I came up with the answers. We'd correct any mistakes. I've enthusiastically recommended Barry to many friends while I was tutoring with him. Many used him afterwards and had the same positive results. Barry provides a new way of looking at the test and how to approach it. Going into the test I felt absolutely confident and ready to take it on and do well. Barry's laid-back and calm attitude also encouraged me to remain calm about the SAT and to be lax during our tutoring sessions so I could focus properly without feeling tense or overwhelmed. Barry has become a trusted and reliable friend over the years and far beyond the SAT. He is truly a knowledgable and caring person with a passionate for teaching students. I highly, highly recommend him!

Excellent Personalized Tutoring
My daughter and son were tutored by Barry Goldberg, owner of Elite. Both kids for their SAT, the essay and in addition Barry tutored my daughter for her GRE for graduate school. Besides offering individual tutoring, his method is unique and he is extremely "kid friendly". Most importantly, after the student receives their first test scores, Barry reviews their mistakes and teaches the corrections. Upon taking the test for the second time, there is a great probability of an increase in the test score. Because of his standard of teaching my children achieved high test scores resulting in incredible academic scholarships. I have recommended Barry at the very least a dozen times to other parents. All have been extremely happy with his ability to connect to the student and teach them in a way that enables elevated test results. That in turn translates to money well spent because the colleges and universities reward high scoring students with an ample increase in academic scholarships.
