Parents, Sign in to post a review on this page.

We have just been through the ACT/ SAT with two teenagers and I want to recommend an excellent tutor for other families entering this maze. Mo Rahmoun offered excellent, hands-on tutoring and guidance without adding to the pressure that swirls around these tests. In fact, his calm, gentle approach took a lot of the stress out of standardized testing (something I wouldn't have thought possible at the outset). More concretely, both my kids saw score increases of 5-6 points on the ACT after a few months of weekly sessions with Mo, with even greater increases in math (Mo's specialty, although he's great with all parts of the tests). Mo was also able, after just a few sessions, to predict both kids' scores exactly, down to the individual section. Can't recommend him highly enough to others entering the testing gauntlet. You can reach Mo at bcfcl [at] comcast.net.

After searching BPN and Bay Area high school lists of the best SAT tutor, we engaged Mo Rahmoun to prepare our son, John, for SAT.

The experience was delightful with benefits beyond solely improving John’s score.

Back in the day, the SAT was a ‘snapshot’ of a student.  The score had a weak correlation with how a student would do in college – so it was reluctantly used by admissions.  Over time, the test has changed and is now a specific hurdle to admission that a student needs to prepare for and master.  It went from ‘who can run fast on the playground today’, to who can have the discipline to devote 3 months to preparation and then run a six-minute mile.

For many colleges (including UCs), a score of 1560 will not guarantee admission, but a 1500 will take you out of the running.   With this in mind, we hired Mo for a weekly 2-hour session for 3 months.  As Mo precisely predicted, there was 200-point gain (on the 1600 point scale) with a final 800 on math.  John (according to Niche) has hit the 75th percentile at the colleges he wants to attend.  He is in the running for the undergraduate experience he wants, so that he can be prepared for the professional school that the international job market requires.   

Mo broke each test type into sections and then into types of questions from each.  He and John determined baseline scores and goals for improved understanding and for an improved score.  Mo has many detailed yet easy to understand strategies, techniques and tricks.  This includes when to take the test to build one of those combined “superscores” (which combines scores from different sittings) that some colleges value.

As John’s practice scores improved with Mo, he gained confidence which accelerated his learning.  He enjoyed working with Mo and found the entire process enjoyable. Working with Mo has impacted his school work and how he approaches other studies.  Since working with Mo, strategies have replaced stress for the SAT (and for his high school work) – and he is now comfortable with the whole college admissions process thing.

Mo aint cheap and the cost is not insignificant.  However, the benefit is wide and extends beyond that getting-into-college hurdle known as the SAT, or those pesky 2 or 3 subject tests. 

  It is with great pleasure that I am highly recommending Mo Rahmoun for SAT/ACT test prep tutoring.  My daughter improved nearly 300 points in the math section on her first try of the     SAT compared to the PSAT.  With assessment methods, Mo helped her choose between the SAT and ACT paths, taught her numerous invaluable math tips, strategic calculator use on     advanced math problems, and most importantly gave her the confidence and competence to actually look forward to taking the otherwise intimidating test.

  Not only did Mo's tutoring position my daughter well for getting into her top choice colleges, but his sessions also helped improve her grade in Pre-Calculus math class at school.  Mo       is humble, kind, generous with his time, and reliable.  He is super-intelligent, highly accomplished in his own education, and has an enormous talent for teaching.  I am immensely             grateful to have had his expertise and, without hesitation, I highly recommend him for SAT/ACT tutoring.

Mo Rahmoun is an excellent test-prep tutor. He is patient, humorous and highly effective, tailoring his tutoring to suit the style and academic background of his student. He arrives well-prepared and prompt as clockwork at your house, bringing materials, tests and exercises suited to the needs of his student.

My son is a hard-working student, but an average test-taker. When he was in his junior year of high school and getting ready to take his SAT, I got Mo Rahmoun’s name from BPN and contacted him, asking him to help prepare my son. Mo Rahmoun tutored him during the summer of 2014 and helped him achieve a score higher than his previous one, allowing him to get into the school of his choice. Moreover, the test-taking skills Mo Rahmoun taught him lasted through his college years, where he continued to excel as an A student.

My daughter is now a junior in high school and Mo Rahmoun is also preparing her for her SAT. I recommend him full-heartedly as an excellent test-prep tutor.

Mo Rahmoun tutored both of my daughters for the ISEE.  He also tutored my younger daughter for her middle school math classes.  He did an outstanding job.  In addition to knowing his stuff, Mo is patient and kind.  Both of my daughters enjoyed working with him.  As a parent, I appreciated how he came to our house for the tutoring and was always on time.  You can't go wrong with Mo!

Mo Rahmoun is an extremely in-demand test-prep tutor with good reason. He's patient, thoughtful, analytical and teaches students skills that are useful on standardized tests and also more broadly helpful in taking many of the tests students encounter in junior high and high school (SAT subject tests, APs, etc.). He worked with my daughter at our home on both the ISEE and SAT and helped her to achieve near-perfect scores (and ultimately admission to private high schools and Ivy League universities). He's a good diagnostician, very sensitive to students' learning style and adept at identifying particular strengths and weaknesses.  My daughter was comfortable working with him and looked forward to her sessions, which never dragged. Homework was useful and directly related to improving areas of weakness. Mo is very professional and takes his work and his students very seriously. An excellent tutor who I'd recommend highly to anyone with a child looking to understand and perform well on standardized tests. 

 I am writing to recommend Mo Rahmoun without hesitation as a test prep tutor. Mo tutored my son for the ISSE 3 years ago. My son is a hardworking, A- student but average test taker. Mo turned below average scores into high scores. My son was accepted at the 2 competitive highschools he applied to, Head Royce and Bentley. We have returned to Mo to have him tutor my son for the ACT. His scores are steadily going up. Mo is kind, warm, patient and encouraging. My son really enjoys working with him. He comes to your house, which is tremendously convenient, and he arrives like clockwork. He brings prep materials tailored to your child's needs. He is a wonderful tutor and a treasure of a human being. I give him my highest recommendation.

We found Mr. Rahmoun through BPN and have been very happy with the results of his tutoring.  He is very knowledgeable, calm (and calming), focused, and has a knack for motivating teenagers.  He immediately figured out our son's strengths and weaknesses and tailored his sessions accordingly.  While our son does well in math and science tests, he needed help with reading comprehension.  Mr. Rahmoun came well prepared every time, with different types of exercises and work for the following week.  What I appreciated was the way he paced his sessions, how he combined quick drills focused on vocabulary with slower periods focused on teaching him how to read to comprehend.  He taught our son and continuously exercised with him great test taking techniques.  Also for us, Mr. Rahmoun's coming to our house was of great help.  To sum up, a great experience with great results!  

If you are looking for a fabulous ACT/SAT Tutor, look no further.  Mo Rahmoun is the answer.  Mo tutored my daughter and raised her ACT scores to help her achieve admittance to her first choice/highly competitive university.  Currently, Mo is working with my son.  Not only did both of their scores improve significantly after tutoring sessions with Mo, but Mo has given them several strategies to help navigate the test and ultimately reduce test anxiety.  

When I was looking for tutors for my daughter three years ago, I found several glowing reviews of Mo on BPN.  I am writing this review to remind this community what a wonderful resource Mo still is.  

Mo can be reached at 510-367-5829 or 510-763-9627.

June 2014

I strongly recommend Mo Rahmoun for help with standardized test prep. We found him on BPN a few years ago when my son was getting ready for the ISEE. I don't remember those scores but they were good enough for admission to all the high schools to which my son applied: Bentley, College Prep, and Head-Royce. My son asked for a session with Mo before the junior year PSAT and scored above the National Merit cutoff. A few sessions for the SAT, again at my son's request, led to scores of 800, 790, and 800 in Critical Reading, Math, and Writing; Mo's detailed guidance about how to write the essay was invaluable. A couple of sessions for the SAT subject tests have recently resulted in 800 each in Literature and Math II.

With all the varied demands of high school and extra-curricular activities, my son spent almost no time on test prep outside of Mo's sessions. Those few focused hours spent on removing any gaps in comprehension, covering the ground for the tests, and developing test taking skills were enough.

Mo went above and beyond expectations: not only did he come to the house, he also swung by in between sessions to drop off additional prep materials.

My son does very well at school but he has said over and over again that his standardized test scores are in large part due to Mo's guidance and the confidence the Mo has developed in him. Mo is an understated phenomenon: soft-spoken, relaxed, good humored, and outstandingly skilled at recognizing how to bring out the best in the student.

I'd like to highly recommend Mo Rahmoun as an SAT tutor. Mo helped both of my teenagers with the SAT. Astounding results.

One of my kids saw their SAT writing and critical reading sections improve from 660 to 800. Yikes! This happened between the January and May tests, with once-a-week meetings. (a little background: this particular kid has a real drive to succeed, and Mo helped direct and refine this drive).

Mo is a scholar who's thought through the rhetorical and persuasive nature of the SAT essays. He's also good at tutoring math, although both of my kids were already strong in that subject.

Both of my kids really liked him - ''Mo is Awesome'' said my son. He's friendly and low-key, and both of my kids enjoyed his tutoring sessions. He inspired both of them to dig into the test and to see their way through the SAT essay and reasoning sections.

With the SAT behind us, I can wholeheartedly recommend Mo. He's at 510 367-5829 or 510 763 9627, or bcfcl [at] comcast.net - Cliff


April 2013

I'd like to add to the chorus of thanks and recommendations for tutor Mo Rahmoun, whom I found though BPN.

My daughter's SAT scores came back recently, and they soared, thanks to his help. She had 800's in both reading and writing, and a 720 in Math, and she believes it was his assistance, in just three sessions (two hours each), that brought her scores from good to great.

She was already strong in reading, so they just concentrated on the writing and math, and her writing score went up from PSAT to SAT the equivalent of 100 points, and her math score went up 160 points. Just as importantly, he gave her confidence and insight.

I just wish my older child had the benefit of his assistance (she went to a different tutor and her scores went down!)...and what I really wish is that every classroom teacher were as gifted as he is.

Oh, and another wonderful thing, he'll come to your home! You can reach Mo Rahmoun at bcfcl [at] comcast.net =Grateful Mom


Feb 2011

With great enthusiasm, I recommend Mo Rahmoun as a test preparation tutor for middle and high school students approaching SSAT/ISEE, PSAT, and SAT/ACT. Our daughter first worked with Mo as an 8th grader because her abilities in math, in particular, were hit-and-miss and she needed to take the SSAT. Mo taught her whatever math she had not studied before (but would encounter on the tests) and thoroughly reinforced what she did know. He also noted and corrected her tendency to misread questions or rush to answers in the verbal as well as the math sections of the practice tests. Her math and verbal scores on both the SSAT and PSAT (she returned to work with Mo as a Junior) were stellar. She also remarked that she had become a stronger and more confident math student in the classroom, too. She is currently working with Mo to prepare for the SAT; she says he ''makes everything clear.'' Mo Rahmoun knows these tests inside and out and delivers both the relevant curriculum and smart test-taking advice with patience, good humor, and the skills of a master teacher. He can be reached at bcfcl [at] comcast.net or by phone at 510-367-5829/510-763-9627. L.G-W.


Jan 2011

Mo Rahmoun was extremely helpful in preparing our son for the SAT. The scores improved from a low combined score of 1540 to a high of 2010; almost 500 points of improvement!

Mo helped on all sections of the test with his tutoring, his advice and his practice exercises. He was smart, friendly, patient, organized and effective. I firmly believe that our son will have many more options for universities as a result of Mo's knowledge and skill. Highly recommended!

You can contact Mo by e-mail at bcfcl [at] comcast.net, or you can call him at 510-367-5829 or 510-763-9627. - Paul


Sept 2010

Like other parents, we contacted Mo Rahmoun about working with our son who is a high school junior to prepare for the SAT and ACT. Mo explained his tutoring system and methodology thoroughly, as well as the books he uses. Mo was reliable and prompt with the tutoring schedule which was weekly in two hour increments. He is very knowledgeable about the material and reinforced our son's test taking techniques by having him take past SAT and ACT tests. Our son's score exceeded our expectations. We give Mo a lot of the credit. He can be reached at bcfcl [at] comcast.net, or by phone at 510-367-5829 or 510-763- 9627

Mo Rahmoun tutored our son for the ISEE test. After taking the test, our son was thrilled with the dramatic improvement in his scores. My husband and I were also pleased with the greatly improved scores, but we were even more pleased with how much our son enjoyed learning with Mo and how he got a better sense of himself as a learner--his strengths and weaknesses, his ability to benefit from a one-on-one tutoring relationship, his increased confidence in his intelligence. Mo did a great job with him, and our son often commented to my husband and me that Mo is both a really nice man and an excellent tutor. We highly recommend Mo to other parents. Mo is also highly experienced in tutoring students on the SAT, the ACT, the SAT subject tests, and the SSAT. We will hire him again if our son needs help preparing for SAT tests. Call Mo Rahmoun at 510-367-5829 or 510-763-9627 or email him at bcfcl [at] comcast.net.

Mr. Mo Rahmoun worked with our son in his junior year of high school to prepare for the SAT and SAT Math Level 2 tests. Based upon our very positive experience, we subsequently asked Mr. Rahmoun to help our daughter prepare for the upper level ISEE and SSAT tests in connection with her applications to independent high schools. We recommend Mr. Rahmoun highly and without reservation to parents seeking test preparation assistance for their children. For our children, the experience of working with Mr. Rahmoun was extraordinarily positive. In both cases, our childrens test scores improved significantly thanks to time spent with Mr. Rahmoun. We also believe that the time our son spent with Mr. Rahmoun reinforced high school course work, and resulted in more productive and enjoyable junior and senior years of high school. Mr. Rahmoun may be reached by e-mail at bcfcl [at] comcast.net, or by telephone at 510-367-5829 or 510- 763-9627.

We would like to share our experience with a great test preparation tutor:Mo Rahmoun. Mo worked with our older daughter, currently a sophomore atUCLA, during her junior year in high school to help her prepare for the SATtest. Her scores improved significantly based on Mo's excellent guidance and tutorials. Our younger daughter, a high school junior, began working with Mo this Fall to prepare for the PSAT and is now receiving tutoring andpreparation for the SAT. We highly recommend Mo to parents looking for test preparation help-- he's a very skilled and knowledgeable tutor. Mo is also experienced in preparing students for the ACT test.

Jan - Feb 2009

My daughter will be taking the SAT ( probably ACT also) in a few months. Instead of a more general course I think she would benefit from a tutor on a 1 on 1 ( or 2 on 1) basis. The english/reading part especially needs work. Would need to be in the Oakland /Alameda area and be $50 or less. Any suggestions? Thanks, Jenny

I'm searching for a good SAT prep course or tutor for my daughter who will be a junior in the fall. Also interested in suggestions about self-study guides on studying for the SAT. Any recommendations? Berkeley Mom


Hello, I had Mo Rahmoun tutor my son for both the SAT! and SAT Math 2 and my son scored extremely well in both and will not be taking the tests again. I would highly recommend contacting Mo . More recommendations for Mo can be found on the recommendations page. His e-mail bcfcl[at]comcast.net. Deepa


March 2007

This is my recommendation for an excellent SAT tutor, Mo Rahmoun. He tutored our son, a Junior, for the SAT 1 and we were very pleased with the results. Our son, so far, has taken the SAT test only once and his score is good enough. Consequently, we have put off thinking about his taking the test a second time because we think it will not be needed. Mo is currently tutoring our son to prepare him to take the Math Level 2 SAT subject test.

Mo is very encouraging and patient, and is very skilled at adapting his tutoring to different individual learning styles. He is also reasonably flexible in accommodating changes in students' schedules.

I would strongly recommend Mo to any parent who is looking for a private tutor for their child. I would also suggest that if you are thinking of having him tutor your child to contact him early, in order to be able to get the days and times you can work with.

You can contact Mo by phone at 510-367-5829 or 510-763-9627. Or by e-mail at bcfcl[at]comcast.net Deepa


Dec 2005

I am looking for a tutor to help my 16 year old daughter prepare for the SAT in January. Can you recommend someone who specializes in test taking strategies? She also wants help with the writing sample and history.


Mo Rahmoun was our son's test prep tutor for the ISEE (private school equivalent of the SSAT) and was patient, well prepared, knew how to encourage my child in exactly the right way and adjust to his learning style. My son just mentioned yesterday that it was Mo who taught him how to write a 5 paragraph essay in 1/2 hour, which had seemed like an impossible task. He has tutored for the SAT for many years. The tutoring is done in the student's house in 2 hour segments and Mo was very reasonable about working with difficult schedules. His contact #'s are 510-367-5829 or 510-763-9627. chiliconmom


I would like to recommend my son's SAT prep tutor to parents looking for an excellent and reliable SAT tutor. His name is Mo Rahmoun.

Mo did an outstanding job helping my son. His overall SAT score increased several hundred points, from the time he took the PSAT in October to his SAT last month (May 7), when he took the New SAT test for the first time. He achieved excellent scores.

My son is a bright kid and, with Mo's help, was able to clarify concepts that (maybe) were not clear to him from the beginning of his schooling. In that respect, my son's experience with Mo preparing for the SAT test has helped him in more ways than one.

Mo is a warm, patient, and knowledgeable teacher. A one of a kind person. The sessions were two hours long, once a week, at our house.

I recommend Mo Rahmoun highly.

Summer prep classes for SAT

June 2005

I would like to recommend Mo Rahmoun as an excellent SAT tutor. My daughter, now a senior, has worked with Mo to prepare for the SAT 1 (Math and Verbal) and SAT ll (Writing and Math 1C). She has found Mo to be knowledgeable and dedicated, as well as friendly and approachable. She says that he explains math concepts very well (she has needed help mainly with math), and that he has given her good advice for the SAT 1 Verbal and SAT ll Writing tests. So far, my daughter has been pleased with her SAT results after working with Mo (she still has one SAT ll left to take). She tells me that she has liked the way he has encouraged her to review and prepare for her sessions with him. As a parent, I very much appreciate Mo's reliability and his individualized approach (he seems to realize quickly how my daughter learns best). You can reach Mo at 510-367-5829 or bcfcl AT comcast.net -- Stella

Re: SAT Tutor Recommendation
I highly recommend Mo Rahmoun as an experienced and competent SAT tutor. He tutors PSAT (Math, Verbal, Writing), SAT I (Math and Verbal) and SAT II (Math IC, IIC & Writing).

He has extensive experience in tutoring students of diverse skill levels and knows how to effectively tailor his approach to match the learning styles and abilities of each of his students.

He also has an in-depth understanding of how these standardized tests are designed and structured and what they measure.

His combination of experience, understanding of how the test works, and excellent teaching skills has enabled the majority of his students to get great results. For some of his students, the scores they've achieved are nothing less than extraordinary.

If you are looking for a talented SAT tutor who really knows the tests and gets great results. Good Luck SLH


August 2004

I'd like to make a recommendation for a great SAT tutor, Mo Rahmoun. Mo worked with my son, who truly enjoyed every session, learned a tremendous amount, and greatly improved his test scores. Mo is super-experienced at helping all kinds of learners with test preparation, and is a warm, patient, smart person, with the ability to bond easily with the student and actually help them have fun with the process as they are learning and improving. He really knows the ins and outs of testing, has all kinds of tips, and is completely up-to-date on all the SAT changes as they come along. He is a UC Berkeley grad in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. You can reach Mo at 510- 367-5829 or 510-763-9627, or email him at mnr AT attbi.com toni


June 2004

Our daughter, a Junior at Albany high, has made wonderful grades for years, but was not performing well on standardized tests like the SAT. We chose to work with Mo Rahmoun (mnr AT attbi.com) after considering Princeton Review and having her work with skill building publications and computer formats. Mo tutors for SAT I (Verbal and Math) and SAT II (Math IC, IIC and Writing). He is an Electrical Engineering/Computer Science graduate of U.C. Berkeley. We chose his tutoring because we wanted 1) help that was tailored to our daughter's needs; 2) someone who would come to our home (we do way too much running around already!) and 3) someone who worked systematically to identify areas that needed work, worked with practice tests, and who was positive and encouraging. Mo is all those things and more! As many have already attested, the skills he has been imparting are helpful for the SAT now, but will also be useful far into the future. Furthermore, he is parent- friendly, totally reliable and inspires our daughter to prepare and self-test. His personal ethics of responsibility and hard work are imparted throughout his tutoring sessions. Call Mo at 510-367-5829 or 510-763-9627. Ilene

To parents of High School students and of Juniors in particular: The majority of juniors will be taking the SAT I test in the Spring. The Spring test dates are fast approaching and now is the time to start preparing for them. I would like to repeat a recommendation that I made previously for an SAT tutor. Mo has been continually refining his approach to SAT tutoring these last many months. He is currently using some very effective strategies, especially some techniques suitable for improving students' performance on the Verbal part of the SAT, particularly the Critical Reading section with which a lot of students have difficulty. Mo tutors SAT I (Verbal and Math) and SAT II (Math IC, IIC and Writing). He has been getting very good results with his students, averaging an improvement of 150 points. Many of his students have raised their scores by more than 200 points, which is considered outstanding. He LOVES tutoring and effectively communicates support and encouragement. He is especially good at judging exactly what a student requires in order to do well and tailoring his approach to those individual needs. He can be reached at 510-367-5829 or 510-763-9627. Good Luck! Sylvia


August 2003

I would like to make a recommendation for an SAT tutor. Mo tutors SAT I (both Verbal & Math) and SAT II (Math IC, IIC & Writing). He has been getting very good results with his students, averaging an improvement of 120 points. Some students have raised their scores by more than 150 points in 5 sessions, which is considered outstanding. He LOVES tutoring and effectively communicates support and encouragement. He is especially good at judging exactly what a student needs in order to do well and tailoring his approach. He can be reached at: Mo Rahmoun, 510-763-9627 or 510-234-1824.

I highly recommend Mo Rahmoun as a SAT I/II tutor. He did a wonderful job with my son, who is a whiz with computers and does well in school, and yet had disappointing SAT scores. Mo motivated my son to learn new words, and taught him how to answer math questions. He also analyzed and improved the way he took the SAT tests. My son learned valuable lessons from Mo that he will continue to use in school and life, including a larger vocabulary, basic math skills, and how to approach problems. Mo has a sensitive and encouraging approach that matches a student\x92s ability to learn. He comes to your house, and is highly reliable and personable. Mo has an engineering degree from UC Berkeley. My son said the tutoring helped a lot and gave him confidence to take the tests. Plus his scores really improved. You can reach Mo at 510-763-9627 or 510-367-5829, or by email at mnr AT attbi.com. Good luck! Clair
