Both of our children benefitted from their individual test preparatory tutoring and college guidance counseling. We credit Mackler Associates for helping each child find the best college fit for themselves where each are happy and thriving. We highly recommend Mackler Associates.

I have been a customer of Mackler Associates since their inception. I personally utilized their services as a high school student, and then enrolled my own children when they were in high school themselves. Each excelled under their fine tutelage and now continue to work with Mr. Marks as college students. The expertise afforded by Mackler Associates is unparalleled. They are not only able to help with a wide range of coursework and topics, but are also skilled at standardized test preparation for both undergraduate and graduate school entrance. The level of personalized service is exceptional and their availability is outstanding. I recommend them highly and without reservation, and have referred colleagues and friends in the past.

Mackler Associates is an excellent resource for all things academic. I worked with both Jason Marks and Dr. Mackler for preparation for both the ACT and the LSAT. Their test preparation programs have tremendous value. The best part about their services is the one-on-one test preparation. Both Jason and Dr. Mackler are masters in helping you prepare for college and post-graduate studies. Their methods are fantastic and provide you not only with knowledge of the subject areas tested but also approach and time management techniques. The one-on-one approach is what sets Mackler apart!

Jason Marks of Mackler Associates assisted my daughter prepare for the ACT test. Jason was very easy for her to work with and allowed her to have flexibility because of her ever changing schedule. The first time she took the test she improved her score considerably. Jason then helped her focus on areas that could improve and the second time she took the test she again improved dramatically. She has now received significant scholarship offers from multiple universities. Jason has also helped her think about different schools and has been an advisor on the process including proofread her essays and providing suggestions on how to approach the essays. He has been invaluable in assisting with the college admissions process. We highly recommend Mackler Associates.

First, the very nature of remote learning minimizes contact…
