We needed to find an SAT tutor for my daughter right away. I like the fact that Arbor allows you to switch tutors if you want to.  Due to scheduling problem on our part, we ended up needing to switch to a different tutor. I simply sent an email and we immediately were given another tutor that fit into my daughter's new schedule.

    My experience with Brian Beebe has been very great thus far. He has been my college counselor for just over a year now and I believe that without the help of his program I would be no where close to having completed what I have so far; including my resume, doing community service, getting letters of recommendation, and writing my personal statement. Like my friends, I probably would not have even begun to think about what college I want to attend, let alone, have already applied to over eight. Besides applying to college, his test prep program is awesome. In just 6 weeks I raised my SAT score on the writing section (practice test in the program) from a 560 to a 650. Bringing it from a very low score to an above average score. I honestly don't know if there is anything he could have done to help me more. Possibly, having more conference calls or changing the monthly check-ins to more often than a monthly appointment, for instance every two to three weeks. But besides that (which is really no big deal, as I am sure he wouldn't mind if you checked in with him more often than the monthly check-in) the overall experience has been great! I would recommend that if you are stuck between wanting to have Brian as your counselor or not, you should definitely do so. The whole idea of college will soon get very overwhelming and it's always nice to have someone, like Brian, there to make sure you're on the right track and answer all the questions you will soon be pondering about the application process. Trust me.

      Marshall has a broad range of knowledge. I think he would make an excellent tutor for most subjects. I had him do some editing for academic/professional papers and he did an excellent job. He is personable, flexible and accessible.

      We reached out to John to help us with our 8th grade son who has been struggling with math. John is able to convey the material to our son in a way he can grasp --something we failed at miserably. Although it is the beginning of the school year, we are anticipating an improvement in our son's math performance. If at all else, his attitude toward the subject has improved immensely, which is a relief to us all. Highly recommend.

      About

      The one thing that separates from other tutors is the level of support I provide my students AFTER tutoring. I provide practice exams, online homework support and progressive academic feedback. I make practice exams for each and every one of my students to make sure that they are ready for their upcoming exam. I also have a Facebook Group in place so that my students can post any of their homework questions outside for FREE. While, this is not the most ideal way to get an answer as it is not very prompt, I make all the effort I need to reach out to my student so that they do not feel alone after our tutoring session.

      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.
