"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."
Gina Raimondo, former Governor of Rhode Island
"Rainbow coached our sophomore to a perfect 36 on the ACT and contributed to her National Merit Finalist award. A picky and independent student learned to embrace new approaches to questions and develop critical thinking skills – a miracle."
Tayler Park, Harvard-Westlake Parent: Daughter admitted to Harvard, Yale BA/MM
“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%."
Ora Z., Pepperdine Law School Student
"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."

"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”Elizabeth Blanchard, Parent to Carmen Blanchard, UCLA Regent Scholarship Recipient
“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!”
Jennifer Baldacchino, Parent to Gabriella Baldacchino, USC Student/Actor
“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!”
Adrienne Zubia, Former WME brand partnerships coordinator and account manager at TikTok; USC and Marymount High School Graduate
“Cindy Chanin understands the testing and admission process like no other. She has an extensive professional background and helped us navigate the high school admission process for our daughter, like a Ninja! Cindy invested her time and energy into our daughter and took it upon herself to get to know her. She was able to decipher what kind of learner she was and which of her tutors would be a good fit for her. For the weeks that we worked with Rainbow EDU, Cindy called everyday. She wanted feedback about the tutoring sessions and wanted our daughter to feel confident and empowered. Cindy is a student advocate and coach. Much, much more than a tutor. This is a full-service operation…the real deal. Cindy Chanin…Rainbow EDU…I just lucked out…hope you do too!”
Star Jasper, Larchmont Charter Parent
“Cindy helped me to recognize my own unique spirit and potential, turning the college application process from a daunting and fearsome task into a true journey of self-discovery. With her guidance and inspiration, I was able to articulate the inner workings of my personality and put together a distinctive application that fully encapsulated who I am as a student and person. Thanks to her guidance, all of my efforts were recognized by top tier institutions, including Yale, Stanford, and Wesleyan, which were my top three choices. I am delighted to call Cindy both a mentor and friend; she has inspired me beyond words and helped me embrace my individuality. I can now say that I am heading off for college with a secure sense of self and confidence and that I am fully prepared to share my talents with the larger university community. Cindy not only help me raise my SAT score to a previously unfathomable 2300, but also helped me hone my study skills and writing techniques to fit my learning style. She is a genuine spirit whose unabashed love for learning shines through in her tutoring methods. Her personalized efforts make her an invaluable resource for students of all backgrounds and academic profiles, and her vibrant personality makes her a true friend and inspiration. I cannot thank her enough.”
Corinne Kentor, Columbia Teacher's College, Yale and New Jewish Community High School Graduate
“Because of Cindy’s unique and highly individualized approach, I was able to raise my SAT score from 1850 to 2380! Cindy is the most inspiring, creative, personable educator I have ever worked with throughout my years of schooling. She has helped me blossom in every facet of my life. I would not be where I was now if it had not been for her creative ingenuity and steadfast guidance.”
