“I came to ArborBridge based on the recommendation of a friend who’d used them. When I started my studying I had almost no knowledge about the American exam system and went through a very steep learning curve with Dan. The tutoring was always driven by specific improvement which was incredibly helpful and allowed me to improve very quickly, eventually ending up with a score far better than anything I would have expected when I started.” – Nick W. UK, ACT (Final Score: 36, +4 pts)
