Here's what people say about Kathleen:
We're so grateful for how you have helped [our son]. Guaranteed that without your support and help, he wouldn't have done as well as he did. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Kim (Arlington, VA)
Thank you both for your excellent help on guiding [my son] through the process. Kathleen, your knowledgeable, intense and supportive tutoring on English really paid off.
Jackie (Arlington, VA)
Thank you for all your help! The ACT seemed easy while I was taking the test because of how prepared I was... thank you so much for allowing me to get this score!… You have helped me so much!
C. (Lorton, VA)
[My son] really enjoys working with you. He said you make it fun. That is a huge compliment coming from him, so thank you so much.
P. (Lorton, VA)
Here's what people say about Ev:
Thanks for all your help! You were a very calm and practical presence during a stressful year and that meant a lot to him (and us). I doubt you need referrals at this stage of the game, but I’d be happy to refer you any time. And NOT because [my son] got a perfect ACT score, I'm giving him credit there, but because you were able to help him approach it in a way that let him do his best.

Everitt tutored two of our high school students for Algebra II/Trig as well as SAT math, verbal and writing prep. His ability to analyze students' weaknesses and quickly provide remedial exercises is uncanny. Everitt was the answer when two really good students started floundering. His intervention stopped the downward spiral and both are now happily excelling on their own - one at a top 20 university, the other at distinguished core curriculum university. Everitt definitely made a difference.
Christine (Alexandria, VA)
Thank you for all of your help with our daughter - you have helped make a great difference in her ability, scores, and confidence.
Michael (Falls Church, VA)
Everitt, you not only help students do the best that they can on the tests, but you ease their anxiety. I cannot find any tutors to recommend for test prep that have this same ability. You are a RARE find, my friend. You are changing the world....one student at a time! (This may sound like an exaggeration, but honestly, Ev, you are making more of a difference then you may ever realize.) Everyone I have ever sent your way has come back to tell me that you are "a gem", "the best", and "thank you so much for recommending, Ev!...." and on and on.
Hadley (Davis, CA; formerly Arlington, VA)
Everitt helped me pull my SAT score up from a 2010 to a 2280. I'm feeling much more confident in applying to the schools on my list!
Student at H-B Woodlawn (Arlington, VA)
Our daughter felt good about the ACT Saturday. Your help has been indispensable, Ev, and I know she has enjoyed working with you! My husband and I have been pleased to meet you as well. Thank you for your expert coaching, for all your generous support and encouragement of our daughter and kind words about her. We are grateful to have "discovered" you!
Karen and Mark (Arlington, VA)
Our son got his ACT scores and we are all so pleased! ... He was very pleased with his reading and writing improvements. We cannot thank you enough for all of your help. I look forward to getting your help with his younger brother, who just started high school this year.
Sandy (Fort Hunt, VA)
Everitt, thank you so much for helping our son prepare for the ACT and SAT. You certainly lived up to all of the compliments my friends said about you. I feel like our son got the best possible preparation. Thanks again.
Sarah (Fort Hunt, VA)
Just looked at our daughter's scores. She went up by 120 points in Math (perfect 800!) and by 60 points each in Critical Reading (700) and Writing (760). Needless to say we are thrilled!!!!! Thank you so much. You will certainly hear from us again regarding tutoring our other kids.
Melissa (Chevy Chase, MD)
I just wanted to share with you the good news that our daughter got into Smith College (early decision). She is very happy and so are we. Thanks to your help, her ACT score rose to just within their range, and I'm sure this strengthened her application significantly.
Ruth (Arlington, VA)
My son raised his writing score to 730, which is a huge jump from his first in the low 600’s. He raised his essay from an 8 to a 12 which was a big surprise. His reading went up to a 700, from 660. All of this makes him competitive for some of the schools he’s considering. His strength is not writing, so the fact that he did so well on his essay is a good testament to your tutoring. As I wrote on my Facebook status—“found the best SAT tutor ever.”
Jean (Lorton, VA)
I wanted to let you know that my daughter got her SAT scores and she improved by 200 points!!! Her new scores were Reading - 740, Math - 660, and Writing 770, for a total of 2170. We were all really happy with the improvements she made! Thank you so much for your work with her - it made a world of difference. I think it was so important to know about how the test is constructed and the strategies for taking the test, in addition to the review you did with her. Thank you so much!
Vicki (Arlington, VA)
I just wanted to let you know that I'll be attending UVA in the Echols Scholars program! UVA has always been my top choice and I'm very excited to be there this fall. Thank you for being an awesome tutor.
Senior at H-B Woodlawn, Class of 2013 (Arlington, VA)
Hi Everitt! You tutored me last year for the ACT. I just wanted to let you know that after your help my score went up 9 points to a 34 and I got into Vanderbilt early decision. Thanks so much for your amazing tutoring that gave me more college options!
Caroline (McLean, VA)
We wanted to update you (by way of thanks/appreciation/credit for your efforts) on our son's great choices for college: he's narrowed it down to UVA, Virginia Tech, Northeastern, and William & Mary! Such a delightful situation to have so many good choices. Don't know how he'll choose but having these choices was possible in part because of that 800 on math and the solid scores in reading/writing. Thank you for your work on the SATs.
Carol (Falls Church, VA)
Everitt helped us even without providing tutoring. With his recommendation that students try sample tests -- both the SAT and the ACT -- we discovered our 11th-grader had a natural affinity toward the ACT. He took the test and got a 35. I appreciate Everitt's good advice which you can find throughout his website. In our face-to-face meeting, I could tell he would not only be knowledgeable in tutoring, but would be likely to successfully connect with, and motivate, students. Be sure to contact Everitt early in the process, so your student can take advantage of the appropriate number of tutoring sessions.
Claire (Arlington, VA)
I am very grateful for your helping [my son]. He enjoyed you a lot and his scores markedly improved after working with you. I think test preparation is not something most kids really enjoy but you made the experience a lot better for him. You had a really great way with both of my sons and you quickly gained their respect.
H. (Arlington, VA)
My son scored in the 99th percentile on the Verbal and Math sections of the new SAT. He is now competitive for virtually every school in the country. Ev was fantastic and really helped my son hone in on the things that mattered in performing VERY WELL, not just well.
