About McElroy Tutoring

Dear Students and Parents,

My name is Brian McElroy.  I'm a Harvard graduate, SAT/ACT perfect scorer, and test-prep expert with 20 years of professional experience as a tutor, teacher, coach, essay editor, and college consultant.  I now live with my wife and three children in Colorado Springs, Colorado, but I offer online tutoring and coaching to students worldwide via phone, Skype and other types of online chat software such as FaceTime, Google Meetings, and Zoom. 

I specialize in test preparation and private, one-on-one tutoring and coaching for the SAT, ACT, GMAT, GRE, LSAT and ISEE.  I also offer college admissions consulting and essay editing services, as well as small group tutoring (2-6 students).

My one-man tutoring business, McElroy Tutoring, has served Rhode Island, San Diego, La Jolla and beyond since 2002, and I have dozens of references available upon request.  I also have 40 5-star reviews on Yelp--don't forget to read the "filtered" reviews--and  I maintain an active presence online via the McElroy Tutoring Blog and other popular websites such as GMAT Club and Reddit.

I am also available (by appointment only) for 30, 60, or 90-minute standardized test-prep evaluations & college consultations for students and their parents.  During this consultation, I will provide you with test-prep and college information, perform a GPA / Class Rank / Test Score Evaluation  (SAT, ACT, PSAT, PreACT, ISEE, SSAT, SHSAT, ERB), discuss and analyze your student's unique extracurricular talents, and help you and your family to outline a test prep & college preparation schedule for the remainder of the school year and beyond.  I also help students to outline their goals for the future, stay focused academically, and brainstorm a list of potential colleges and universities to which they plan to apply.

If you are a college graduate, then I can also help you (GRE, GMAT, LSAT, essay editing).  I offer admissions essay editing for your grad-school applications, help with your college courses, and private tutoring for the LSAT (law school), GRE (graduate school) and GMAT (business school).  I have personally attained perfect or near-perfect 99th percentile scores on the LSAT, GMAT, and GRE, and I continue to take these exams periodically to stay sharp and up-to-date.

Do you have a few questions or concerns before you or commit to a particular tutor, consultant and/or test-prep program?  I understand fully, and am happy to answer any questions you may have. Please remember that you are always free to "try before you buy": I am available for phone and email consultations, including a free 15-minute phone consultation.

In addition, please feel free to utilize this website and its many links as a free source of educational information.  I strive to be not just a successful private tutor and college consultant, but also a helpful educational resource for American families of all incomes.

I look forward to hearing from you.
