We found Andrea through another site and initially only signed up one of your kids with her. She convinced our other three kids to switch to Andrea. After talking with our kid's teacher, we agreed that Andrea was a better choice for English than our usual tutors. Because we were adding three more kids, Andrea offered ways to save us time and money. She doesn't give discounts, but she is always thinking about ways to meet our needs better for the same money or less. She also offered to set up a custom course for our 4 kids, including our recent grad, to improve their essay writing skills. We were even able to add three cousins, but I had to be the adult contact to make it practical. Our teens are looking forward to taking this course together, and Andrea is designing activities for them to do between sessions so they can get even more out of the course. Because it takes a lot of Andrea's time outside of teaching hours, the pricing is different than with tutoring. For a highly customized program, it's a great deal. One of the surprises we got when we started working with Andrea is that she trained her genius son from childhood to tutor. He's amazing and now works with every one of our kids in math, science, and test prep. He works with college students too, and so we're going to have our recent grad work with him in the first year of college tp get off to a good start. At first, I was surprised at how little I had to do once Andrea and Lander were working with my kids. I almost felt as though something was wrong because I was used to having to do so much to make sure everyone was on track. For this, she does almost everything directly with the students rather than going through the parents. She has them show parents plans and give input and approve, but she does it in a way that takes very little parent time. Simply put, she doesn't need parents' help because she's a real teacher and like other real teachers she works directly with her students. So be prepared to let go and let her do her job. She won't even let you do what students are supposed to do in her system. I've noticed that as I've let our kids work with Andrea and Lander, our kids have taken ownership of their programs and communicate better with teachers. They keep better track of their own schedules and seem more mature. We sought out Andrea because we had a student who hated working with their current tutor. We found a one stop solution for 90% of our tutoring needs. By working with Lander and Andrea via Google Hangout, we have saved untold hours in traffic, money that would have been spent on gas, parking, and eating out, and energy. My kids are more rested, happier, and more confident about school. They are also thrilled with their improved grades, as are we. While I was reluctant to review Andrea for fear they would not have hours for us, she explained that the less time she spent reaching out to new customers when her students graduated, the more time she'd have for us. She also gives existing customers first dibs on available hours. You do have to pay in advance to get times reserved, which is fair. We made a choice to sell one of our vehicles to schedule our kids through the end of the year. I was arid to do that in case anyone got sick, but when I looked the rapid progress my kids have made, I realized that it was a false economy to go with a lower quality tutor. Andrea says that she's only had one student in two years miss due to illness and due to the nature of that chose to make accommodations. She pointed out that the way she works, missing a session is not really an issue and I agree for many reasons I won't list here. We are very happy with how this is turning out, and we're noticeably all les stressed out about school than we were before. Having two fulltime, highly experienced teachers for our kids to work with on a guaranteed schedule is beyond what we'd ever thought we could find. If Andrea accepts your kids into her program, nurture that relationship so it's easy for her to keep them on. This is her fulltime job and Lander's fulltime job, so they tend to hand pick their clients. She'll always treat you well, but to keep her you have to treat her well too. All you have to do is be considerate by respecting the written agreement so that she can focus on your kids and not on you. That takes getting used to, but it's the way it should be. For example, she wouldn't take my brother's kids because my sister-in-law insisted on doing things in a way that wouldn't be realistic for Andrea without her charging a lot more. But, when I offered to be the adult contact, she took them. Right now, they are just coming off a waiting list since their seniors are graduating. So, they probably have at least some availability for summer and maybe some for fall. Grab what you can.

I worked with Sam Kohli between 2014-2015 in preparation for my ACT examination as well SAT Math II, Biology, and Chemistry Subject Tests prior to applying for college. When I first started with Sam, I did not have the hottest test scores (29 and 30 on the ACT) and was in need for guidance for not only raising my score but, more importantly, gaining valuable test taking strategies that would allow me to perform at my peak when testing day came around. I very much enjoyed my time with Sam: both as a tutor and as a friend. Sam's genuinely friendly, determined, outgoing, and patient personality truly make him an amazing tutor and individual you want to work with. Because of Sam's efforts, I was able to score a 35 on my ACT, 800 on my SAT Chemistry, 790 on my SAT Math II, and 750 on my SAT Biology. I am now attending UCLA as a second year Neuroscience Major with a Biomedical Research Minor as a prospective candidate for applying to medical schools come 2019.

    When I contacted PBP, they were very attentive to my needs and set up multiple sessions that allowed me to navigate my transfer process & take the right classes. I hope other students out there that are applying for college or looking to transfer can utilize the resources that Prep By Prep provided for me. When you have consultants that care about your personal goals and future plans, it makes the experience enjoyable to not be alone in the process of moving forward in your academic career. I'm looking forward to coming back to PBP!

    I studied AP Calc AB with Jason. I wasn't enrolled in the class at school (I was in regular calculus), but decided to take the AP test. I studied with him for 3-6 hours a day for a solid 2 weeks straight, and I aced the AP with a 5. He is an extremely careful teacher, very student specific, and quickly finds out which subjects/areas you have trouble with and pays close attention to those parts. One thing that I remember was that if I had a question on something, he would think for a minute and say to himself, "How do I want to say this?" To me, it showed that he cared about each student, and even thought about which words to say it in that would make the most sense to me. He remembers which problems you usually get wrong, and orients the class or lecture around that. I can't think of anything I didn't like about his teaching, but maybe it was just that he fit my learning style. If you're struggling in a subject or just want to do really well, I totally recommend him as a tutor!

      Are you hitting the wall and can't seen to improve your LSAT score? I can help. I am a professional private LSAT tutor from Sol Cal. While earning a degree in Logic and Philosophy from Cal-Berkeley, I scored in the 99th percentile LSAT. I researched and analyzed every official LSAT released by LSAC. (My credentials are open book, just ask and I will be happy to show you,). What can I offer you? I teach the LSAT from an intuitive and visual perspective. I will train you to recognize and spot common patterns to almost every question types. You will learn to react to keywords and triggers so that you can develop the necessary skill set to accurately and promptly choose the correct answers. As a Philosophy and Logic major, I will teach you a whole new different perspective on how to approach this pattern driven standardized test. Basically, you will learn to think like the test makers. You will recognize how the same old patterns are rehashed over and over again by the test makers. I will dissect logical reasoning questions and show you how to weed out all the non-essential fillers mis-directions that the LSAC uses to trick you in selecting the wrong answer. Whether you are already enrolled in a Prep Course or just self studying for the test, I can help. Most of my students quickly improve in Logic games in only a few sessions with me. As for Logical Reasoning, I will teach you all the different templates that LSAC uses in formulating their questions. I will essentially reverse engineer the questions for you so that you can understand the structure and pattern of the test. Given that the LSAT is a standardized test, the exams that are given year to year can't vary too greatly, or else it would lose its statistically predictive value. Therefore, the trick is to have someone teach students how to recognize and spot these templates and patterns. (Don't believe me, call and I will provide you with a list of references from my former students) Just remember, I am NOT an LSAT mill that takes your money and assigns you a number. My service is personal, and I give you 100% of my time and attention during our private sessions. I charge only $85 an hour with a purchase of a 10 hour tutoring package, but don't worry, just to show you how effective and unique my methodology is, your first 30 minute intro/evaluation lesson is free! My lessons are very intense and efficient so depending on where you are, you may not need to do a lot of sessions with me. Give me a call and let me show you how easy and fun this test can be. I provide study materials and have a comprehensive course covering everything you need to succeed in this test. Improving 10-15 points is very doable using my system for most students. I am a straight shooter, and I will tell it to you as it is without any sugar coating. I am familiar with most major prep courses out there so even if you don't use my service, hit me up for an honest and candid opinion.

      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.
