Testing Solutions Reviews
I quickly became enthralled with the progress I was making…
Though my parents initially led me to attend ACT tutoring once a week over the summer before my senior year, I quickly became enthralled with the progress I was making with the hour and a half long sessions. Jesse provided me with many helpful tips to improve my speed and comprehension as well as simply providing me the opportunity to practice the types of problems presented on the test. By the time I took the test the second time, I improved my composite score by nine points (from a 26 to a 35) and found a plethora of scholarships and opportunities had become available to me. I am truly grateful I had the chance to study under Jesse Hedrick and I highly recommend his services to any other high school students aspiring to improve their standardized test scores! —Trent Stethen
We knew we needed some one-to-one assistance.
Our son struggled through his school years with test-taking and didn’t form really good study habits. We were continually hiring outside tutors and extra academic help available through his school. When it came time to take the ACT, we were worried this might keep him from getting into his college of choice. The first time he took the test he got a 19, and while disappointed, we were still hopeful knowing he could take it again. We knew we needed some one-to-one assistance. That’s when we met Jesse. After a 10-week course dedicated to “taking the ACT”, Jesse was able to remove a considerable amount of stress in taking the test, and he also helped our son’s grade increase 5 points to a 24! Incredible! Our son got into several colleges, had some options, and his self-esteem soared. Thank you Jesse! —Robyn U.
The materials and methods he used were easy to comprehend and apply.
Performance on the ACT is key to college admission status and we wanted our son to perform at his full potential. We were excited to have Jesse as his tutor. The materials and methods he used were easy to comprehend and apply. My son was able to approach the test calmly and confidently. He scored well above average after only 6 weeks in the tutoring program. He will have more opportunities for admission and scholarships with this score and we are grateful for the tutoring experience he had. I would highly recommend Jesse to help your child prepare for the ACT, SAT or PSAT. —Eva S.
We could not be more pleased with Jesse and the outcome of the time and money spent.
Jesse Hedrick was extremely helpful in preparing my son for the ACT standardized exam. He worked one on one with my son approximately ten sessions and helped him increase his scores 7 points! He ended up with an ACT composite score of 35! It definitely was with Jesse’s knowledge and expertise of the various exams that made the difference! We could not be more pleased with Jesse and the outcome of the time and money spent. It was worth every penny! Thanks, Jesse! —Paige
Your child will see results as long as he or she puts in the work.

Not only did he help her learn the material, but he taught her how to take the test.
My daughter’s experience with Jesse from Testing Solutions was incredible and enriching. Jesse was very helpful in tutoring her to improve her composite score a total of 6 points. Not only did he help her learn the material, but he taught her how to take the test. He gave her multiple testing strategies that she took to heart.
The amount you have to spend to get these lessons are well worth it because of the other college opportunities and scholarships that come with a higher ACT score. While you have to pay for the first lessons, all of the practice test sittings at the Testing Solutions office are completely free. Before taking her latest test, my daughter took 3 practice tests during the 3 Saturdays leading up to the ACT. The practice tests helped her solidify the strategies that Jesse had been teaching her. Despite being done with her lessons, Jesse continued to check up on her and give her advice. She put in the effort as recommended by Jesse and got better results than we were even hoping for.
Our family learned of Testing Solutions from other students from school who were very pleased with the results of their tutoring. After completing my daughter’s tutoring, we have referred two other family friend’s daughters to Jesse, both of whom are happy with his tutoring and teaching methods. We couldn’t be more pleased with the results from Jesse! —Bob H.
…ended up with scores of 32 or higher.
I’ve sent all four of my children to Jesse. It’s one of the best decisions I could have made for their future. They all ended up with scores of 32 or higher. Two of them got a 36. They all got substantial scholarships and three of them turned their “reach” schools into a reality! If your son or daughter will put forth a little effort and follow Jesse’s guidance, it will be money well invested! —Karen B.
Very practical advice about how to approach the day of the test.
Our son’s experience working with Jesse at Testing Solutions was fabulous. Jesse not only helped him accomplish his goals on the SAT and ACT, but Jesse shared very practical advice about how to approach the day of the test. Jesse’s pragmatic coaching suggestions and encouragement allowed our son to go into his tests with the confidence of knowing his potential through practice. —Sally B.

Jesse Hedrick is an expert ACT tutor who is dedicated to his students. Jesse understands what the ACT is designed to measure and he can show you how the questions are designed. Once you understand these key concepts you’re freed to unlock and showcase your potential.

Worth every penny!
I’ve sent three kids to Jesse and all improved their scores more than 6 points. One got a 34 and one got a 35! If your son or daughter is willing to work on the assignments and is willing to put for effort you will get great results. Worth every penny! —Mary S.
It’s great to work with a human instead of a test-prep conglomerate.
Jesse is very effective if you are willing to put in your own time and effort. I went from getting barely a quarter of questions in my first practice Math No Calculator SAT’s to a perfect score on the PSAT No Calculator section and National Merit Semifinalist status. He’s very friendly and approachable—it’s great to work with a human instead of a test-prep conglomerate. —John David C.
It is easy to soak up the content he provides.
As a former student of Testing Solutions, I can say with confidence that this service is well worth the investment. I began my tutoring in the summer of my junior year. Now, as a senior looking back, I can say that the time I spent in one-on-one sessions, doing assigned homework, and taking the provided tests were well worth it.
The one-on-one environment that Jesse creates in his tutoring sessions is ideal for learning. It is easy to soak up the content he provides, and he is willing to go over things more than once so the student can understand. The content in each subject is covered in depth, and Jesse also provides extremely effective testing strategies for each section of the test. The homework he provides falls in line with exactly what you learned in the lesson before, giving you a chance to practice your strategies in a comfortable environment. On top of this, Jesse also provides FREE practice tests which are real ACT tests from past years, so you can use those strategies that you practice in a testing environment.
Overall, Testing Solutions is the way to go when it comes to ACT prep and tutoring. The personalized experience that Jesse provides and all the opportunities that come with it are unparalleled. After taking lessons with Jesse, and using the homework/practice tests to my advantage, I found myself scoring in the 99th percentile on the ACT. Though this did not come easily, Jesse was essential in my testing process and helped me so much when I needed it most.
Testing Solutions provides everything that a student might want or need when it comes to ACT tutoring. As long as the student is willing to put in the effort and study there will undoubtedly be an increase in scores in each subject. —Walker L.
