I first started taking English classes with Jennifer at English Outside the box late last year and started the conversation with grammar classes to improve my intermediate level English. I realized that I was learning way faster then I thought I would. Jennifer is a great teacher. Then, because of work, I needed to take the TOEFL test and she also had a program for that! It was a intense 6 weeks of preparation and I passed with a score of 96, which is higher then my desired 85. That was awesome! Now I continue having conversation classes so my english won’t get rusty and those are my favorite classes.

    I must admit that I was a bit skeptic at first, however Brian's services have proved to be beyond value. I have one child who is currently a sophomore in college and we are paying approximately $5000 a year for a $35000 a year school. Granted some of that is a result of our child's hard efforts in high school, but it is very fair to say that at least 50% of the financial scholarships and grants were a direct result of Brian's efforts. Other high achieving students in her high school who are attending similarly priced schools received less than half of the scholarships and grants that our daughter received. Thank you Brian! We are currently preparing to send our second child off to college next year and once again, Brian's services have been of amazing value. Not only does he help with navigating the financial maze of colleges, but he also helps greatly with preparing students via test prep materials and application guidance. He also helps them with their college essays, and what parent wishes to be the critic of their child's college essay? Certainly not us! Through the entire process with both of our kids, Brian has been able to communicate with our children as an interested third party, not as a parent and that has made our job as parents much easier. Brian isn't just a resource for the kids, but the parents as well. With one gone, a second one preparing to leave and the third coming up in just a few years, I can't tell you how appreciative we are as parents of the savings Brian has assisted with. Not only that, but having him to be the coach allows us to enjoy the college application and acceptance process with our children as much as anybody can enjoy the process of sending their kids out of the nest. We get to be teammates with our kids rather than the coaches and that is priceless. Thank you Brian for all that you do. Your passion for our kids is very obvious and we value you greatly!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    How long does it take to prepare for the GMAT?

    Pros recommend planning to spend two to six months for GMAT prep. The test itself is only 3.5 hours long, but your score will have a major effect on what schools grant you admission. If you’d like to be considered for one of the top-tier schools, it’s recommended to score at least a 700. Your goals for your MBA can help drive your GMAT prep. GMAT tutors will guide your study plan and help analyze your strengths and weaknesses. GMAT tutors also offer professional guidance and insights on strategic GMAT test-taking. Avail yourself of free GMAT prep software that provides sample test questions for you to practice. The creators of the GMAT recommend creating a structured study plan detailing when you will study each day and what topics you will study during each session. Take into account what style of learning works best for you (solo study, one-on-one tutoring, group tutoring, study groups, prep courses) and proceed accordingly. The test is made up of these four categories, each with an allotted time:

    • Analytical writing assessment: 1 topic, 30 minutes.
    • Integrated reasoning: 12 questions, 30 minutes.
    • Quantitative: 37 questions, 75 minutes.
    • Verbal: 41 questions: 75 minutes.
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
