Leven Simon, Crossroads School Graduate

"It’s hard to find words to describe how I feel about Rainbow. Their impressive repertoire of skilled tutors helped me navigate the road to the SAT in a fun and creative way. The comfortable and stress free environment that they provide made preparing for the SAT a once in a life time experience that I will cherish forever. I am blessed to have found Rainbow, and anyone else who gets the privilege to work with them will love the ride."

“For those of you who have college bound children, I urge you to hire Cindy. Her hands-on approach to college testing, the application, including the essay, will enhance your child’s chances of getting into his/her desired schools. My children (twins) were initially very intimidated by the college process. Cindy helped them get through it successfully with a great deal of patience and positive reinforcement. My twins got into all of the Schools they applied to. Thank you Cindy."

"We were so lucky to find something that can meet ALL our education needs! Rainbow EDU is like a one-stop shop - such a gift! It has been such a wonderful and positive experience for my daughter. Working with Rainbow EDU this year has not only given my daughter essential educational tools, but it has also helped elevate her mood and alleviate her anxiety during a very tough year. She’s a much happier, well-balanced kid!"

"Cindy Chanin and Rainbow EDU Tutoring & Consulting are absolutely amazing! We have used many of their educators for our three children, including everything from French to SAT Prep to college applications. Trust me when I say these are no ordinary tutors. REC educators care not only about teaching, but also about the student. Entering the daunting college process this year with my senior was intimidating and scary for me, because, like any parent, I wanted to give my child the best opportunity for her future. This is a crazy brag sheet, but these are Carmen’s successes: Carmen got a 1520 on her very first go at the SAT after two sessions with Scott. These are her college admissions wins: UCLA with the prestigious, full-tuition Regents Scholarship; UC Berkeley (Cal)with $30,000 annually in merit aid; Vassar College; Northeastern with a huge merit-based scholarship; UC Santa Barbara; UC Davis; San Diego Statue University (SDSU) Honors College; University of Colorado Denver for Psychology; CAL POLY Pomona; CAL POLY SLO Deciding on Rainbow EDU was the BEST decision I made for my teens! REC really took their time covering every aspect of the college application process. Cindy really motivated and encouraged my daughter to explore places and ideas she had never tread before. We are forever grateful”

“In just a few sessions with Scott, our daughter bumped up her ACT score to 33, putting her in a whole new bracket of students. Math was her weak spot, and Scott helped her get comfortable with math testing, and helped her understand the structure of test taking. Scott’s tips and tricks make it less stressful. Before tutoring with Scott, math didn’t stick. Now she’s comfortable and confident!”

“Rachel and Sascha mentored our daughter through applications, her personal narrative, and portfolio. Their rigorous guidance and structured approach kept her on course. Meanwhile, Cindy was super helpful on the creative front, helping her find her path and story. Cindy helped her break down what to focus on. She encouraged our daughter to speak from the heart, express who she really is, and speak from her life experience. It was a very touching and personal experience. She was GREAT at getting our student grounded, and got so involved in the self-discovery process and personal. Her connections allowed conversations between our high school student and future potential mentors which wouldn’t have otherwise happened. Beyond Cindy, the entire Rainbow team is so attentive, always finding the time, always having someone there to get it done. Even at 11:59 on a midnight deadline!"

“I have been tutoring with Cindy since my sophomore year and she has helped me through so many of the challenges of school. She has been there with me through the confusion of shapes in geometry and in dissecting chemical compounds in chemistry. My junior year she led me through the stresses of how to graph all the way to logarithms in my Algebra II Trigonometry course, and as a result I was able to raise my math grade to an all-time high. When I started the college process I was lost as to where to begin in my testing, but with Cindy’s breakdown of each subject in the ACT, I was able to raise my scores substantially in each subject, which ultimately led to an incredible increase in my overall composite score. In my senior year Cindy guided me through the rigor of Pre-Calculus and Physics. As a student at USC now, Cindy is always no more than a phone call away to offer suggestions and help make the transition to writing essays in college a thousand times easier. More than just her help in my academic life, Cindy has been there to offer me aid throughout the college process with any questions I had and in addressing any concerns. Cindy has been like no other tutor with her genuine concern for my success and her willingness to help no matter how hectic her schedule may be. I am incredibly grateful and could not have been able to be so academically successful without her help!”

Wendy Hammers, Santa Monica High School Parent

“I know this is a big statement, but my son’s participation in the Paving The Way To the College of Your Dreams workshop has been a life altering, and a much needed anchor for him, as he prepares for college and beyond. The Rainbow educators present the types of questions that desperately need to be asked at this crucial, and sometimes challenging, point in a teenager’s life. Just as importantly, the environment in which these questions are posed is a fun, safe one, where he has been open and willing to explore in a way he would not with his own parents. Our family will be forever grateful to the Paving Program and the Rainbow team!”
