His engaging style, perhaps honed while producing college and professional sports at ESPN, has helped hundreds of students from high schoolers looking to beat the ACT or SAT to undergrads and professionals looking to get into top tier graduate schools such as the University of Chicago, Harvard University, New York University, and Yale University.

A 2021 Executive Assessment student had the following to say about Stefan as an instructor:

Stefan is an exemplary tutor who is patient, nonjudgmental, and encouraging at a minimum. Not only does he lead your session with the utmost professionalism, but he just so happens to be funny too - can't beat that combo when studying for your test. Stefan had me well prepared for the Executive Assessment test even though math was not my strongest suit, and thanks to his professional guidance I was accepted into NYU's part-time MBA program!

Not all, but many of MyGuru's excellent reviews on Google and Yelp reference Stefan.
