"Two Sons. Many standardized tests. One tutor. One result ~ Outstanding! John Henrikson has prepared my sons for both the SAT and the ACT standardized tests. His methodology is straightforward and yields tremendous results. Students are prepared wholly so that test day is seen as a challenge to be met with confidence, energy and an attitude that says "I got this"! His practice methods and strategy guidelines were easily incorporated by my sons. Mr. Henrikson encourages students to liken "test" days to "game" days going beyond strategy and confidence building to reminding his students to get the proper rest the week leading up to the test date and by giving his students his very own recipe for test day snacking ~ "Geek Mix". My sons followed his protocol to the letter and had outstanding scores as a result. My husband and I could not be more proud of our sons' accomplishments or more pleased with their tutor, John Henrikson. Thanks Mr. Henrikson!"

"My son, Colin, was nervous and unsure about the looming SAT test date. Always a wonderful student, he understood the importance of this singular score. John worked with Colin to strengthen his test taking abilities and reassure him of his skills. Colin's cumulative scores increased significantly after working with John, and he could not have been happier with the results!"
- Lori P., Mother of Colin, Class of 2012 and Hobart and William Smith Colleges Class of 2016.
"Mr. Henrikson is a great teacher and easy to learn from. His methods helped to improve my scores a lot and I would recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their scores."
- Michael M., Class of 2012 and Stanford University Class of 2016
"He really prepared me for the test and allowed me to reach my full potential. Without having him as a tutor, I know that I wouldn't have scored as high as I did on the SAT. Through working with him, I felt more confident going into the test. He put me in a great position to succeed."
- Daniel L., Class of 2012 and Harvard University Class of 2016
"Mr. Henrikson's winning, unassuming manner is what drew me to him originally - he seemed, not only a teacher, but a whole person. He earns his students' trust with his patience, their respect with his expertise, and their loyalty with his genuine interest. I know for a fact I would not have performed as well as I did on my SAT and ACT tests if it were not for this man's determination and efforts. He has enormously helped me develop as a test-taker and a functional member of academia. I would sincerely recommend Mr. Henrikson to anyone who takes seriously their SAT or ACT scores."
- Mike M., Class of 2012 and Georgetown University Class of 2016
"Working with Mr. Henrikson was a blessing. By trusting in his system, I was able to overcome my Critical Reading and Writing deficiencies to gain a 2230 on the SAT. Also, he helped raise my PSAT from a 167 to a 212, which earned me a spot as a commended National Merit Scholar."
- Chris B., Class of 2012 and Harvard University, Class 2016
"Out of everyone that I have come into contact with, Mr. Henrikson has helped me the most in regard to SAT preparation. His lessons and methodology were crucial in allowing me to do as well as I did on the SATs. Without Mr. Henrikson I would have scored much lower. He truly helped prepare me for the SATs unlike anyone else could have and I highly recommend him and his method of preparation to anyone that wants to do exceedingly well.”
- Brian F., Class of 2012 and Georgetown University, Class of 2016
"Mr. Henrikson's one-on-one tutoring strengthened my focus, honed my skills and improved my scores in the areas where I struggled. I went up 100 points from the PSAT, and I plan on raising my score again with his techniques for my second SAT!"
- Ellie H., Class of 2013 and University of Delaware Class of 2017
"Mr. Henrikson is extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. His methods are effective and easy to understand, and I would personally recommend him to anyone looking to boost their scores."

"Making the decision to get a tutor is easy...finding the RIGHT one, not so much. John Henrikson is a terrific tutor. He not only works to improve test scores but enhances study skills and time management. Both Kate and Emily have gained an increased confidence in taking standardized tests, both SAT and ACT. John is not only kind and caring he is also flexible and connects well with the students. He is very experienced and widely regarded by parents and educators in our area. "
