We went over strategies for SAT and ACT testing. We did practice tests and from there worked on improving my timing. She also guided me in college options and even edited a college essay of mine. I probably didn't spend enough time with her before the test because of how busy I was. But the time I did spend with her was very beneficial.

MoJoe was my tutor for A&P and I know that my A's would have been B's without his amazing tutoring and encouragement. Recently I took my daughter to MoJoe for Algebra tutoring ... suddenly she doesn't hate math! MoJoe has an amazing ability to teach AND to inspire. A rare combination, in my opinion.

My daughter really likes working with Tina. She was failing Alg II and after two sessions with Tina she passed her next two test and made a 81 on her midterm. Tina was able to present the material in a way that was both understandable and a liitle bit enjoyable. I say enjoyable because my daughter did not realize that she had been studying for an hour during either session.Looks like Tina won't be able to continue tutoring but we really hope she can. My daughter is already a little disappointed that she may have to find a new tutor and is dreading her next test without Tina's help.

Aaron (one of Test Preps tutors) is a great teacher, has a lot of patience and is very clear in his lessons. My son has had 7 lessons and I can definitely see the important in his grades and confidence. Aaron is responsible and punctual. His teaching method is what my son needed, he is not strict, but it always corrects him. I highly recommend them to all who want to help their child exceed in school.

Christopher is a miracle worker. I hired him at close to the last minute to help my daughter prepare for the SSAT test, which was a last minute thing and left her only 2 weeks to prepare. I was concerned because she'd just come out of a gifted math class but was very confused and I was helpless in this new era of common core. In addition to an incredible manner with her, he prepared and gave her the confidence she needed to get 98-99th percentiles on the test. He was happy to go over any subject. Now that she's in a private middle school, we keep seeing Christopher once a week so she always has a helpful and supportive ear for the things mom and dad are useless at. Thanks so much Christopher!

FASTrack Tutors & Test Prep brought me into contact with Mark Kover, who is undoubtedly the best tutor that I have ever worked with. I first met Professor Mark as a struggling 8th Grade Math student, almost certain that I was not going to pass the Math course I was taking at the time. Mark was not only able to help me raise my grade to something passable and substantial, but he even helped me earn an A in the course! Since then, I have worked with Mark as needed, and his guidance and advice has been invaluable in many situations. I would highly recommend Mark for ACT Test Prep, as his testing strategies utilize speed and accuracy, which are the skills needed to succeed on the ACT. With his instruction, I was able to raise my ACT score several points from my previous attempt in merely one weeks time! That ACT score aided me into being accepted to all of the colleges I was considering attending. When it comes to the ACT, Mark will undoubtedly give any student better results than if they were to study with a variety of other tutors, or spend hours attending large group ACT Prep Seminars. One of the most important traits Mark possesses that makes him a great teacher is that he cares about his students' lives outside of their Math Textbook. This makes him not only a tutor, but also a friend and a mentor. He understands that academic success can correlate with success in areas of life outside the classroom. This is an understanding that not all teachers have, and I can say from personal experience that Mark goes above and beyond to make a difference in other's lives.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I prepare for the GMAT?

If you’re thinking of enrolling in graduate school to earn your MBA, it’s time to start thinking about preparing for the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). Working with a GMAT tutor is for many people a wise investment to help you strengthen the academic areas you may be weak in and improving your overall test score. A GMAT prep tutor should teach you not only the kind of information you need to know for the test, but the best test-taking strategies. The GMAT tests you on four categories: quantitative, verbal, integrated reasoning, and an analytical writing assessment. Cramming is probably not going to give you good results for this standardized test; give yourself between two and six months to prepare, focusing on your most challenging areas first. Successful GMAT prep means planning ahead and studying thoroughly. Those students who reported studying under 75 hours were more likely to score 400 or lower on the test, while students who studied 121 hours or more were more likely to score 700 or higher on the test. Hiring a GMAT prep tutor can range in price from under $50 to over $200 per hour.

How do you study for the SAT?

Your SAT prep strategy can mean the difference between a great score and a mediocre score, as well as the difference between being accepted to or rejected by your school of choice. The Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) is a college entrance exam that measures a student’s knowledge and understanding of what they have learned up to this point in school and what they need to succeed in college. In addition to arming students with the knowledge they need to excel in the math, reading and writing components of the test, SAT prep can help improve scores by teaching students crucial strategies for taking the test itself. Professional SAT prep tutors can work with students one-on-one or in group sessions. Typically, tutors recommend that students who are comfortable and caught up with their regular schooling begin SAT prep at least three months before the test. If you’re targeting an elite school, six months before the test is a good time to begin. Students who are behind in school are advised to start early to ensure they’re caught up and feeling confident in all the relevant subjects. Suggestions for long-term SAT prep include taking challenging high school courses, completing all homework assignments, preparing for class tests and quizzes, and participating in class by asking and answering questions. There are free SAT prep training tools online; for those who’d like a one-on-one tutor to take them to the next level, the national average rate is $70 per hour.

What is ACT test prep?

The ACT is a college entrance exam taken by students (typically in their junior year of high school) to determine admission eligibility and merit-based scholarship eligibility. The test may be taken as many times as desired and is not limited to high school juniors. Originally the acronym stood for American College Testing, but now ACT is the stand-alone name. ACT prep is a way for students to strategically prepare for test-taking. ACT prep helps students improve scores, practice taking the test, learn test-taking strategies, and improve material comprehension. Students can get help with ACT prep tutors in one-on-one sessions, via group tutoring lessons, in online self-study programs, or online with a tutor in video calls. The ACT test covers:

  • English
  • Science understanding and reasoning
  • Math
  • Reading
  • Writing essay (optional)

How do you prepare for the ACT?

The ACT is a universally accepted college readiness exam. There are multiple ways to prepare for the exam. One-on-one ACT prep tutoring is one of the most effective ways for students to ready themselves for the test. A tutor who specializes in ACT prep will coach the student on the type of material they can expect while also working specifically with topics that are more challenging for that particular student. Group tutoring sessions are a more cost-effective way to reap the benefits of an ACT prep instructor; a suggestion is to gather a group of four friends or classmates to share the cost. Professional tutors often recommend that test prep begin approximately three months prior to the exam. Cramming — unfortunately — doesn’t provide the same score results as consistent study, test-related homework, and practice exams do. Weekly two-hour learning sessions are what many pro tutors suggest for their college exam prep students. For top test-taking performance, tutors usually provide work throughout the week and the weekly session is used to cement knowledge and address weak areas. Math is a hard topic for most students, so plan accordingly.

When should you start preparing for the SAT?

It’s never too early to start preparing for college entrance exams, but professional tutors recommend a baseline of at least three months before the test. The Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) is the gold standard for college admissions, and SAT prep is important for doing well. Your child’s SAT scores will have a major effect on which colleges send acceptance letters. Professional tutors can work with your kids to coach them on how to take the SAT, as well as studying the actual academic content. Doing well on the SAT is as much about knowing the right test-taking strategies as about having a firm grasp of the subject matter.

To understand your student’s readiness for the SAT, they can take the pre-SAT (PSAT) starting in their sophomore year. SAT prep can be structured around the student’s PSAT scores, so tutors can address any challenges and weak subject areas. If your child has their sights set on an Ivy League or elite school, SAT prep with a tutor or study program should start at least six months before the test. Vocabulary is a key element of the student’s SAT preparation and success. The national average rate for SAT prep tutoring is $70 per hour.
