Eight years ago, Joan helped my brother get accepted into his dream school, and […] now that it is my turn to step up to the collegiate plate, I wouldn’t choose any other person. I have done SAT prep, achieving a super score of a 1570 out of 1600 on the SAT. Next, I will be working with Joan on my college applications, just like my older brother did eight years ago.


BEST tutoring center, like, ever.”

“When I started coming to MeriEducation, I noticed that I understood my classes much better, which helped me get better grades. All of the tutors there are very helpful with all of my school work and tests. :)”

“MeriEducation is one of the most engaging tutoring experiences I have ever had. Everyone is super friendly, and the tutors are dedicated to helping you receive the best score possible. I enjoy my tutor sessions at MeriEducation because not only am I preparing myself for exams, but I am also having fun, and I think that’s important.”


KRIS M. a Redlands East Valley High School Parent

“We started using MeriEducaton over a year ago. My son was a junior and wanted help with AP US History. From the first phone call I made, I knew they would be great. Everyone is so very helpful, understanding, and professional. Their tutors are top notch and so great to work with! My son also did their [college applications coaching]. They helped him with college apps, essays, everything! He has been accepted into 6 universities! He also went there for his ACT and each time his scores went up. Now he is currently going to brush up on Spanish for the SAT and AP exams. My daughter also attends tutoring weekly and loves her tutor. She will also take the practice ACT and attend tutoring for that this summer.”

LINA K. a Yucaipa High School Student

“MeriEducation has helped me become a better prepared and a well-rounded student. I have been coming here for help with everything from AP Biology to SAT/ACT preparation to college applications! The tutors here are always on your side and take the time to make you understand the material and make sure you succeed. They provide all the materials to help students become confident in their ability to do well! I would strongly recommend MeriEducation for anyone looking for tutors in all different subjects and specialties!”


DORA K. a Clairbourn School Parent

“This past summer and fall of 2017, my daughter enrolled in the upper level ISEE Test Prep classes at MeriEducation in Pasadena. Thanks to the superior, hands-on teaching of these outstanding tutors, my daughter achieved stanine scores of three “8s” and one “7” on her November upper level ISEE test. She couldn’t have gotten these high marks without their tireless, inspired, and dedicated one-on-one tutoring sessions. On some occasions, in the midst of teaching, [her tutor] would unexpectedly inject a funny joke to break up the intensity and rigor of her math classes. That was helpful for our daughter, and she looked forward to her tutoring sessions. We not only thank the teachers but also Joan [the founder] and her fabulous staff for a job well done! I highly recommend to other families the test prep study program at Pasadena MeriEducation as they have the best test prep study materials, the best tutors, and they produce results.”

EMILY T. a Los Osos High School Student

“I'm really glad that I found MeriEducation. The tutors are really helpful and tended to my needs! My advice for current test prep students is you really need to dedicate time to practice and independent study. It’s helpful to keep a routine and dedicate specific times to help you develop the habit and mindset.”
