Chris Orr has been an outstanding mentor through the process of preparing me for the SAT. He helped me improve my score 320 points and familiarized me with necessary skills needed for overall test taking ability. I started off bewildered at the grading system for the test and by the end I had used the system to my advantage. Chris has helped me widen my options for a better future and a better college. Not only have I gained critical knowledge in the subjects of vocabulary, grammar, and math but also have learned the value of hard work and dedication through his tutoring.

Chris Orr made my daughter’s college application process a seamless experience and reduced the stress and anxiety for not only my daughter but for the entire family. Beginning with ACT preparation, which increased my daughter’s score by 6 points, Chris also facilitated the college application process from selecting colleges, sorting the selections by degree of difficulty, understanding the requirements, ensuring efficiency of all material for the application and editing all essays and personal statements. Hallie was able to focus on school and maintain a strong GPA while successfully submitting her early decision application to GW as Chris was available and an expert in the information he provided. Chris became a part of our family as he met with Hallie once to twice a week for 6 months. Chris was always available for Hallie to bounce ideas off of, email essays to, discuss options and changes and was an integral part of Hallie’s ability to be accepted into the Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington University. What a blessing Chris Orr was, and what a pleasure to work with!

Chris is a very patient and intelligent tutor and I strongly recommend him for anyone planning on attending a prestigious university.

Chris went beyond the duties of a SAT tutor, and became my mentor throughout my tough year of high school while working with him. He not only helped raise my score tremendously, but also helped me compile a list of colleges suitable for me. I am so thankful for all his help.

Chris Orr tutored my son for the SAT’s including the subject exams and was able to bring his SAT score up over 200 points. I found Chris a very capable tutor for my son. He had a very good attitude and did not stress my son out about the test but rather gave him a great deal of self - confidence. I highly recommend Chris as a tutor.
