Gina Raimondo, former Governor of Rhode Island

"My daughter's test prep experience with Scott Reding exceeded our expectations. She is an intelligent and capable student but has always been deeply apprehensive about standardized tests. His patience and humor made her feel at ease from day one. Through his insightful, intuitive understanding of the unique challenges posed by testing, Scott fully individualized the process to address both the content of the exam and, perhaps more crucially, the mental hurdles that had been preventing my daughter from engaging and demonstrating her true potential. In the end, she earned a near-perfect score on the SAT, thanks to Scott’s incisive, supportive, and empowering approach."

"I am beyond impressed with Rainbow EDU and Cindy Chanin. We found her company by chance when looking for someone who could share in our daughter’s unique struggle of juggling the demands of being a professional performer and a diligent scholar with goals to attend an Ivy League school. I was thrilled when I learned Cindy herself had a similar background and she built a strong connection with my daughter. Cindy and her team guided her, giving her the confidence and preparation she needed to achieve a near-perfect SAT score. When the time came to jump into the college application process, I reached back out to Cindy despite there being many local experts in DC, because I had grown to trust Rainbow EDU’s process, authenticity, and approach. Cindy jumped right in and personally worked with my daughter to help her find her angle, her differentiator. Cindy’s guidance and support gave my daughter the confidence she needed to create a stand-out narrative combined with a unique way to showcase her background in dance to illustrate how her strengths and unique abilities will make her an outlier and invaluable asset to Yale’s college community. Long story short: my daughter was accepted to Yale’s Single-Choice Early Action program and is over the moon. We are proud of her hard work and dedication and we are immensely grateful for Rainbow EDU’s guidance. They are truly best-in-class and I highly recommend Cindy and her team."

Tayler Park, Harvard-Westlake Parent

“For three years running, our family has enthusiastically committed to our work with Rainbow EDU Consulting and Tutoring. We’ve covered so much ground together! From highly competitive school admissions, to academic tutoring in AP US History and STEM, to high school paving (Cindy’s signature program), to college explorations and admissions – all three of our students have thrived with meaningful and productive support. Rainbow EDU mentored our daughter, in particular, through the college admissions process, helping her gain admission to Harvard, Yale (five year combined degree B.A./M.M. program), Columbia, Julliard, Johns Hopkins, UCLA, Cal, NYU, UCSB, BU, and waitlisted at Stanford, Penn, and Northwestern. She'll be attending Harvard in the fall!”

Sarah and Neal Moritz, Brentwood School Parents

“Rainbow Tutoring has been a godsend for our family during our kids’ middle and high school years. Cindy Chanin is always available to find highly-qualified, specialized tutors at the drop of a hat. My son worked with Nick on high level math and science classes during his junior and senior years. Nick was professional, skilled, and very helpful. My daughter enjoyed working with Rebecca and Gali during middle school. Now that she is in high school over zoom, her tutoring sessions are particularly important since it is hard for her to focus during remote classes. All of the Rainbow Tutoring tutors we have met over the last four years have been stellar. I appreciate their follow-up emails after each session, which report what they worked on and how well my students understand the material. I highly recommend Rainbow Tutoring for all your tutoring needs. It is truly a one-stop shop.”

“Rainbow Tutoring’s SAT Prep Intensive Workshop was an amazing course that truly helped me improve my scores. The people there were so nice, sticking with you the whole way to make sure that you completely understood how to do something. I’m glad I did this prep course and I have gained confidence going forward with my SAT.”

“Twelve schools, twelve sets of expectations and deadlines. Not one bead of sweat. Rainbow EDU has taken all the weight off of our family’s shoulders. As a parent, I’m not the tiniest bit worried about the process. Cindy and Rachel (a dream team!) have been creative in approach, meticulous with details, and way ahead of the game."

Ora Z., Pepperdine Law School Student

“Scott was an incredible coach, he encouraged me and pushed me to do my best. Our LSAT training was impactful, not only because of how knowledgeable Scott is, but also his ability to help me create a study schedule. With Scott I was able to push past my plateau and score in the top 1%."

Michelle Rosenberg, Brentwood School Parent

“I’ve worked with many tutoring services and private tutors over the years, and your team is by far the best!! Our daughter really really clicks with Gali. They are both outgoing, smart, hip. A great fit she really connects with. Rainbow stepped in when our daughter’s longtime tutor was unavailable for her Chemistry final. They have been dependable and wonderful ever since."
