Verified review

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.

Dan was a life-saver! My son was up against finals in Physics and Math, we found Dan and he was working with my son within 24 hours and explaining concepts that had never been effectively taught.. My son walked into his exams with more confidence and understanding and for that we are very grateful.

It was a great experience. She provided learning tools on the first day. That included the SAT book as well as vocabulary cards. She is worth the investment.

My review is a bit early because we have only had one lesson so far but I have to say Lawrence and my son clicked immediately. I had a phone conversation with Lawrence that lasted about 30 minutes before his first visit to go over what my son needed help with and what our goals were. At that time we decided to wait on his PTSA scores before Lawrence's first visit. Then when he came to our home it was right down to business with my 16 year old. Lawrence called me after the initial prep with my son to go over how he felt about the session and his expectations. Lawrence did give my son some homework (minor) but he did tell me this will increase. We have scheduled his second visit. Lawrence is doing prep for SAT's.

Chris is an awesome math and SAT tutor! He's been tutoring our teenage daughter for a year in math, and recently started prepping her for the SAT as well. He relates well to teens, and he's great at honing in on whatever she needs help with in math. If you want to make math homework stress-free for you and your student, it's well worth the money!

Cindy and everyone at Rainbow tutoring are some of the kindest individuals I have met. The wisdom Cindy bestowed on me while helping me through my college application process will be with my forever and I am so grateful. Cindy helped me figure out what I wanted in my college experience and gave me the tools to get myself there. She introduced schools that I wouldn't have seen myself at and helped me get myself to Santa Clara University. She is beyond inspirational and such an empowering woman that is a role model to any and all of her clients. Cindy and her team are smart, dedicated, and reliable- they are always able to help and are great mentors to have before going off out of high school and into a college or real life environment. Cindy especially is very clear and really walks you through the steps to understanding in both Math, Writing, and the SAT Prep. I am so thankful to have met and able to work with you guys !

I hired Ahmed for Math tutoring for my son who is taking the PSAT and SAT this coming fall. He had rave reviews about Ahmed. Ahmed was patient, incredibly knowledgeable, and able to explain the concepts to my son in an absorbable manner. I will continue using him for the rest of my son's high school math needs. Highly recommended.

    I wish I could give these guys 100 stars. Deb was extremely helpful. My son had a very low SAT score. Harry met with her a few hours every week.  His score jumped up. Arbor knew exactly what to do for his new SAT score and he got accepted to three Ivy League schools!!!. You can't ask for anything more. We are extremely happy with the results.

      My SAT math score went from a 630 to a 790 after studying with them for a few months! I'm hoping to get a perfect 800 with a little more studying.

      About

      For over a decade, I have been helping students achieve SAT scores that allow them to apply to their colleges of choice with confidence through quality one-on-one tutoring. One-on-one SAT tutoring produces the best results, and is far more effective than group classes. Whether the student has taken the test once, or is taking it for the first time, a few one-on-one sessions before the exam can make a big difference. An excellent tutor has far more than just mastery of the test material. They are warm, friendly, patient, and can teach the material in the student's own language so that they learn. Years of tutoring full-time have allowed me to cultivate these good qualities. Many of my test prep clients keep me as a subject tutor long after the test. Thank you for reading my post and I wish you success! Roozbeh

      About

      Taking the SAT doesn't have to be an intimidating experience! I've been working as an SAT teacher/tutor for over a year now, and my experiences have taught me many simple and effective strategies for familiarizing students with each section of the test. I can travel to meet clients in the LA area, or tutor online via Skype. I do all sorts of writing and editing: creative fiction, long and short-form non-fiction, articles, and blog posts. I have a B.A. in English Literature from the University of Michigan, where I also studied Philosophy and Art History, and have years of experience developing, writing and proofing essays for style, grammar, and syntax issues.I'm familiar with Chicago, AMA and APA citation styles. I'm available for translation and transcription as well-- I grew up speaking English, Spanish and Italian at home, and studied Latin, so I have a good ear for languages and a good eye for grammar.

      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.
