Thank you Thore! We are so pleased to have found you as a tutor. Your initial efforts have brought relief of the stress and burden that the ACT exam imposed on our daughter. She is much more positive going into this exam already and said the tutoring taught her grammar she had never understood before. Thore is professional, organized and his method is connecting. Thank you!!

He has a very precise game plan for testing for the ACT. Thore was patient with all my questions and thoroughly answered me. He was also flexible if I needed to change the day or time

Thore did a great job working with my son on the English section of the ACT. He made a point to simplify concepts and positive reinforcement of what he can achieve. My son felt very positive after his first tutoring session.
- Jenice C. from Madison, WI
Thore focused on ACT math techniques for my son, giving him tips to avoid common mistakes and anticipate the kinds of questions that he would encounter.

Once again Lilah's practice test scores are SO much higher now than from the beginning like night and day!. You really got to know her style and "diagnosed" her trouble spots to a T. You always explained everything in a way she understood and gave her lots of homework knowing how important that component of tutoring is. It was like magic, after a period of time, something clicked and she thoroughly learned how to take this test based on all your strategies, procedures, tips and teaching the content she didn't know at first. Today is her big day and hopefully her last ACT test!! Thore is an amazing, warm caring person ( tough when he feels the need) and takes the extra time to really know how his student operates and customizes each session to meet the needs of student.
- Wendy D. from Edina, MN
Thore appears very knowledgeable in the areas of the ACT. He understood where our son was needing assistance according to the ACT test. Thore provided our son with great structure and organization that our son requires to succeed. Now it's up to our son to use the tools that Thore provided him.
- Becky S. from Saint Paul, MN
Thore is an outstanding ACT tutor. He helped our daughter prepare for the ACT starting about six weeks in advance of the test. Our daughter found him to be personable, engaging, and effective. He identified the areas in which improvements could be made, including content readiness but also extending into test-taking and time management strategies. On nuts-and-bolts matters, he was always on time, always made complete and very focused use of the tutoring session, and was responsive to scheduling emails and other communications. Our daughter reached her goal score result, and she and we credit Thore for contributing to her success. Thanks Thore!

Thore was very helpful of for me. He gave me the knowledge and the skills that will absolutely help me achieve my goals. I was really nervous about tutoring at first, but I now look forward to every session.
- Kathryn O. from Minneapolis, MN
Thore completed an initial review of a prior ACT exam my son had taken. Thore then helped my son with test taking methods that my son felt would have saved him nearly 20 minutes of time with his prior exam and also better approach the problems in a more methodical fashion. My son also said that Thore is extremely smart.
- Kevin S. from Saint Paul, MN
I have been more than pleased with the attention Thore has given my son. His comprehension and style of test taking have dramatically improved. I have also noticed my son becoming more proactive than reactive to assignments, homework and upcoming obligations. Highly recommend Thore.
- Gwen G. from Saint Paul, MN
Thore is an outstanding tutor! He is patient, understanding and provides clear explanations. My son was a little nervous preapring for the ACT test and after working with Thore he is confident with the skill set needed to succeed on the exam. This is the second time we have worked with Thore to prepare for the ACT exam and I would highly recommend him. My sons both significantly increased their ACT scores.
- Gina D. from Minneapolis, MN
Our sons confidence and scores are improving. Time for the test!! Methods seem to be working. Here we go. Hope his confidence is there in test day.

Thore helped my son review for the ACT and I was impressed. Not only does Thore know the material, he also teaches a systematic way of answering the questions. My son enjoyed his sessions and his results on the ACT is proof that the sessions with Thore were money well spent. Thank you Thore.

He knows exactly what he is talking about. Gave me some valuable information on the ACT science section that I never knew. Great 1st session!
- Max Z. from Los Angeles, CA
Thore really seems to know the material for tutoring for the ACT. I am confident that he will be able to identify specific areas in need of improvement to increase test scores
- Tannis S. from Wayzata, MN
He explains everything very well, has a good plan to follow so I know what to study before our next session.
- Alliana H. from Osseo, MN
He really knows how to help a kid prep for the ACT. He is knowledgeable, knows how to explain things, and is patient. Rather than just going over individual questions, Thore worked with my son on practical strategies to prepare for the ACT. It paid off- his score increased by 4 points.
- Rebecca M. from Saint Paul, MN
Thore is an excellent ACT tutor. He is an expert about the Reading/English portion of the ACT Test. He is also dynamic and a great coach, He does a great job keeping the student engaged making the learning process fun which I find to be imperative to keep the student working toward their goals. Thore used all his resources to find my daughter's learning style going above and beyond when he encountered learning roadblocks. I would recommend Thore to anyone who wants to increase their ACT score. Nice work Thore! Thank You!
- Annette B. from Chanhassen, MN
My daughter had her first tutoring session with Thore yesterday. The feedback is great. "He is good, I like him." Coming from a taciturn 16 year old, this is a lot. Thank you, Thore. We are looking forward to completing the ACT prep with you.
