Professional Referrals:

-

Many professional educational consultants now work primarily or exclusively via video conferencing (Skype, FaceTime, Zoom, etc.). Virtual consultations such as these are at least as effective as face-to-face meetings, more convenient for clients, and fast becoming the industry standard.

The primary consideration nowadays should be fit and personal chemistry with the provider, not mode of communication or office location; I therefore strongly recommend interviewing two or three providers before making your decision.

Providers listed below are top professionals, and, accordingly, their fees are high. For lower-cost tutoring options, see "Lower-Cost Tutoring" at bottom.
