Carl lead a 4 week SAT Prep Course for a group of 8-10 low-income youth with our non-profit organization in Santa Monica. Carl was a phenomenal instructor. Carl successfully explained the structure of the SAT, and the strategies necessary to score well. His warmth, humor and high energy kept our youth engaged, and reduced their anxiety about the test. Carl is also highly receptive to feedback, and can teach the course in groups as well. We hope to work with Carl in the future again.

My son went to Joyee for about a month for ACT prep. He thought Joyee knows ACT inside out! Joyee is a non nonsense guy and always straight to the point. He felt the sessions with Joyee were always very productive. After one month sessions with Joyee my son's ACT score went up 6 points! We are already planning to send our younger son to Joyee in a few years. Thank you, Joyee!

We just recently hired Daniel. So far, he was exceptional at explaining his services and listening to my son's academic needs. We hired him in preparation for the ACT. Daniel is customizing the ACT tutoring in relation to our son's learning style. My son was very pleased with his first session with Daniel, and learned so much about strategies and the break down of the ACT, all in just one session. My son looks forward to continue working with Daniel.

We chose Elite and were so happy we did! My son struggled in math and he needed more support than the school offered. College prep is tough, I couldn't even help him! Haha Well, we called Elite and Eric matched him up with Tony. We liked that Tony came to our house for a free session before I had to commit to ordering sessions. I always wondered how that worked so you know your kid will for sure like the tutor and want to learn! We're very pleased, thanks again.

I can't say emphatically enough how much my son gained from Rainbow: he took the Paving the Way to College workshop and used Rainbow tutors to prep for college entrance exams. A special shout out to Joe, who always made time and was so encouraging. The results speak for themselves: my son ultimately got to choose from numerous terrific colleges. Thank you, Rainbow!

I took the ACT, and Kristi saved me. On my first practice test, my composite score was 19. After studying with Kristi and Adam, I ended up with a 33 composite on the final test. And considering that I am NOT a math or science person, this score had seemed unimaginable to me before. I got into my first choice school and I know that I honestly could not have done it without the amazing tutoring I received.

I first spoke with Victor about AP biology tutoring for my son. Victor always replied quickly and gave my son a full study plan for his class and the AP test. We started with tutoring at home and also had a few online sessions using Skype and Victor's whiteboard app which really helped my son, especially when he was getting over a flu. My son said he learned more in a month with Victor than he learned in a semester in class. I also called Victor again for ACT test prep for my daughter. He connected me with one of his great tutors, Josh, who was also patient and professional. My daughter really increased her scores in English, Reading, and Science thanks to Josh and Victor's guidance. I'd highly recommend Victor and his team for AP and ACT test prep. Thank you both!

    I came to Oliver at Verbal Ninja ahead of a big speech that had career and even life changing potential. I was speaking to a large group of fellow doctors, several of whom were what you might call “celebrity doctors.” Frankly, I wanted to upstage them. I myself have an acting background but have always had a lot of stage fright for public speaking. I worked with Oliver over the month leading up to the big event. I knew what I wanted to say, just not quite how to say it. He made my words sound like nothing I’ve ever heard before—yes, that good. Yet it still sounded like me…I felt comfortable and spontaneous. He sort of gave me the voice that I always thought I had inside, if that makes any sense. He also coached my delivery, voice, gestures, movement, eye contact, etc. etc. His tricks to conquer stage fright—especially the psychological aspect—are brilliant. The result? I think I killed it that night. Even my billionaire friend who came to see me said I spoke better than a lot of people he sees that speak on a regular basis. Even the owner of the company had this to say: “Thanks for everything, the event was great and we were very happy that you gave that speech, it was amazing! Not only the way you presented (like an actor) but also the content was very emotional, some tears were shed from Melissa.“ People came up to me afterwards and shared how I changed their view on aesthetics and really motivated them. All the “famous doctors” who spoke alongside me on the panel were super impressed as well. In short, Oliver came to me highly recommended. He leaves me even more highly recommended. If the stakes are high, he’s the guy.

      Hands in the air for the BEST LSAT TUTOR PERIOD. I was weary of spending more money but I heard she was especially gifted with teaching applied logic to people who "should" be scoring higher but aren't. After our 3 sessions, we changed my entire approach and I am officially +11 from last summer. I told her she should double her price, she changed the trajectory of my life --I'm going to Vandy! She can take the most complex abstract concepts and convey them in a way that suddenly *clicks* without any condescence or sublte remarks for having taken two paid-for prep classes already. She's a Polly-Anna for late-bloomers/mom's/40+ and everyone else going back to school and I highly recommend her.

            Q & A

            Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

            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.

            What is on the ACT?

            The ACT is made up of a variety of multi-choice questions under four main subject areas: English, mathematics, reading, and science. There is also the option for a written essay. For ACT prep, it’s important to study each subject. Each subject area is broken down into multiple parts to provide a comprehensive snapshot of the student’s understanding of the material. ACT prep provides an opportunity to prepare for the subject matter in each area.

            ACT English:

            • Production of writing: 29 percent-32 percent of English score. These questions focus on topic development and organization, unity, and cohesion.
            • Knowledge of language: 13 percent-19 percent of English score. This section examines the student’s use of vocabulary and effective language use.
            • Conventions of standard English: 51 percent-56 percent of English score. These questions address sentence structure and formation, punctuation and grammar, and recognition of grammatical errors and how to improve.

             

            ACT Math:

            • Preparing for higher math: 57 percent-60 percent of mathematics score. These questions cover number and quantity, algebra, functions, geometry, and statistics and probability.
            • Integrating essential skills: 40 percent-43 percent of mathematics score. These questions address comprehension of math learned prior to and after 8th grade.
            • Modeling: less than 25 percent of mathematics score. These questions examine how students use modeling skills in all math topics.

             

            ACT Reading:

            • Key ideas and details: 55 percent-60 percent of reading score. The questions test students’ ability to summarize information, draw conclusions, and grasp central themes.
            • Craft and structure: 25-30 percent of reading score. These questions examine students’ ability to understand an author’s word choice and meaning and analyze various points of view.
            • Integration of knowledge and ideas: 13-18 percent of reading score. These questions examine students’ ability to understand facts and opinions and make connections between texts that share similar themes.

             

            ACT Science:

            • Interpretation of data: 45–55 percent of science score. Students will need to analyze and manipulate scientific data presented in various formats.
            • Scientific investigation: 20–30 percent of science score. These questions will test students’ understanding of experimental tools, procedures and design.
            • Evaluation of models, inferences, and experimental results: 25–35 percent of science score.

             

            ACT Writing:

            • This is a 40-minute written essay that examines students’ competence with ideas and analysis, development and support, organization, and language use and conventions.

            What are the subjects on the ACT?

            English, mathematics, reading, and science are the four main subjects on the ACT. Writing is an optional subject students can select when they register to take the test. The subjects were determined as a way to test the sum total of knowledge and comprehension that the students have accumulated up until the start of their senior year of high school. ACT prep breaks down each subject of the ACT test so the student understands what type of questions they will encounter and to provide them with strategies for answering questions. Doing well on the ACT is not only about academic smarts. Learning the nuances of taking a standardized test can greatly improve a student’s test scores. On the ACT, each of the four subjects is broken into subsections to test the students’ understanding in that area. The official ACT website provides free online ACT prep tools for each section, including English, Math, Reading, Science, and Writing.

            How many questions are on the ACT test?

            There are 215 total questions on the ACT test. The ACT covers four academic areas and students have 175 minutes total to complete the test. For students who opt to take the ACT writing test, there will be a written essay (in addition to the standard ACT topics), which students will have 40 minutes to complete. For ACT prep, it’s wise to study the material that will be covered within each academic category and take practice tests to become comfortable with the format.

            The English test has 75 questions that must be completed within 45 minutes. The math test has 60 questions with a 60-minute time limit. The reading test has 40 questions and 35 minutes total. The science test has 40 questions that must be completed in 35 minutes. Tutors may recommend taking the test more than once as part of the ACT prep training, with the goal of improving your overall score each time. Official ACT recommendations urge students to answer each question on test day, even if it is a guess, as there is no penalty for guessing.
