My daughter had a wonderful experience with Jayne. Jayne had tutored her in both SAT and ACT math over the past year. She made huge gains in her score and qualified for a merit scholarship because of it. Jayne's patience, kindness and teaching style made a huge difference. We had had students at ASU tutor her before but with Jayne she definitely felt motivated because she didn't want to let her down. Her encouragement did so much to push my daughter to persevere. So thankful we found her!

Becky Flowers is a fantastic resource for both college test prep and subject matter tutoring. She is incredibly savvy, very responsive, treats her students with respect and is never afraid to push when necessary. I have used her services for both my kids, for both college test prep, college application essays, and for subject matter tutoring. One of my kids is now pursuing his Masters Degree in Quantitative Finance and the other is now a sophomore at a highly rated university. Ms. Flowers has been there every step of the way. I can't recommend her services highly enough!

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.

About

"Kyle C., I had the best math experience ever. You made me believe that math is fun. Thank you." -- Nathan Ledezma, Heritage Academy, Class of 2015 I offer outstanding and affordable math tutoring. As a recent high school graduate, I am well-acquainted with the struggles of students today. Employed as a special education tutor and an American history mentor for the last academic year, I have enjoyed lending a hand to dozens of students who need it most, and in the process, I have refined my teaching skills and gained valuable experience. One essential quality of any successful tutor is the ability to fully relate to his pupils; another is patience. Because I have epitomized both these traits, scholars and teachers alike have recognized me as an able and effective tutor. In high school, I was hailed by the faculty as the best student tutor on campus and recognized by my peers as the "Next Albert Einstein." When my classmates needed help with their work, mostly with math, I was happy to answer their questions with thoroughness and concision. Celebrating the improvements they have seen, multiple students took the time to thank me for my assistance. For example, Wyatt Bradsher, who is now studying computer science, told me, "You are the only reason my math grade is not failing. Having you [...] has really helped me learn." I realize that when mastering a new skill, knowing the answers is not enough; a student must understand the material and know how to properly apply it. When I tutor math, I use a variety of techniques to ensure that my students grasp the basic concepts behind each topic, depending on how the students prefer to learn. Some are visual learners, able to interpret diagrams and illustrations. Others are verbal learners, benefiting from spoken or written words rather than pictures and figures. Among my foremost objectives is recognizing how best to teach my students so that they can truly understand the concepts and confidently apply the skills. I specialize in all levels of math up to Calculus I including algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. In addition, I am competent in SAT math, having scored a perfect 800 on the test just last summer. Math and major tests like the SAT can be extremely intimidating but with the right guidance, success is always within reach.

About

I am an experienced private tutor teaching several different subjects. I am passionate about teaching, and I, myself, adore the learning process! I find passion in connecting with students, targeting their needs, and achieving their version of success. Every student is entirely unique, and each teaching experience holds its own outcomes. My tutoring begins with the goals and hopes of the student. They establish their goals, and I write a lesson plan that will get them accomplished efficiently. I work with students' current materials (notes, homework, or course materials) and also bring to the table my own tools and information to provide a well-rounded learning experience. I am always open to helping with a quick math problem or additional questions that come up in between lessons. I tutor standardized tests such as the ACT, SAT, GED, TEAS, and HESI. I have years of experience in this area and truly enjoy this type of tutoring. I give students valuable test-taking advice and help them get to know the material, rules, and format of their particular test. During my first meeting, I assess students with a comprehensive test, which I use as my jumping off point. I also discuss the students' goals, concerns, and results of past or similar tests. I develop a general impression of the students' unique learning style during this meeting. I write customized lesson plans in each area, targeting the students' strengths, weaknesses, and individual needs. We move through the material at a pace appropriate for the student. It is exciting to see students go from nervous and concerned to relaxed and excited for test day! I tutor biology, anatomy and physiology, and microbiology. I have excelled in these areas and find the subject matter purely fascinating. I love working with students to help them develop an understanding of scientific material and its implications in our world! I offer tutoring in English, writing, and spelling. These subjects offer an important foundation for all studies, and I like to help students secure knowledge and comfort in these areas. I also offer comprehensive tutoring (all subjects) for elementary students. This is such an important time for learning, and elementary students are such wonderful listeners and learners! I find motivation in these young minds and their desire to learn and discover new material. I believe tutoring can be an essential part of a student's education. Any student may excel at any subject given the right tools and guidance. My method of tutoring directly reflects this belief. The ultimate tutoring situation is one in which I can provide not only information to the students but also resources in which they may find their own information or further their own education.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

What is in the SAT test?

As your child is preparing for the SAT, it’s helpful to know the specifics of the test. The Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) is made up of three main categories and one optional essay. Students have a total of three hours to take the test, with an additional 50 minutes for the optional essay. In total, there are 154 questions. During SAT prep, it’s helpful to take timed practice exams to understand how you’ll do during the actual test. Here is a brief overview of each of the four categories:

  • Reading: 65 minutes with 52 questions. The Reading test measures command of evidence, words in context, analysis in history and social studies, and analysis in science.
  • Writing and Language: 35 minutes with 44 questions. The Writing and Language test covers the same topics as Reading, as well as expression of ideas and standard English conventions.
  • Math: 80 minutes with 58 questions. The Math test looks at the student’s understanding of algebra, problem-solving and data analysis, and advanced math in the context of fluency, conceptual understanding, and applications.
  • Essay (optional): 50 minutes with 1 essay. The essay will demonstrate the student’s competency with writing, analysis and reading.
