My son needed a tutor for his freshman year college English Composition class. Before hiring Carl, I had tried a couple of tutors, but didn't find them to be competent. Carl was a very pleasant surprise; he is both very knowledgeable and engages well with my son. I like the fact that he does't merely correct him and gives him answers, but makes him think and analyse the material. He is a rare find.

Mike is truly an outstanding math tutor, and I went through several before I was lucky enough to find him. After being out of school for several years, he helped me build the confidence and skills I needed to get a good grade in college algebra with minimal stress. .

I really learned a lot from Daniel. He clearly knows a lot about the topics he tutors in, and knows how to explain it in a way that's easy to understand. His demeanor was calm and is very easy to talk to!

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.

AMAZING!!! I used both an in-person and online tutor. One for math and the other for English for the GMAT and GRE. I wasn't sure which test to take - so my tutors helped me with both!!! Thanks so much to Adam and Sarah!! They did an excellent job. I improved my scores over 20% in both tests. I ended up with a 740 on the GMAT and top 5% for math and verbal for the GRE. Couldn't be happier!!!!

I am a professor of mathematics and the supervisor of the Math Tutoring Lab at Los Angeles Valley College. Reza is one of the best tutors I have met on any campus I have taught at including University of Utah, Cal State Los Angeles, and numerous community colleges. Reza has tutored at LA Valley College for the past 9 years. Overall he has tutored for 18 years. He is commonly the tutor I hear praised most often by my students. They tell me that not only is his mathematics excellent but he is very clear in his explanation and very supportive with his attitude. He makes my students want to do more math because he makes it very comprehensible for them. Reza tutors Algebra I, Algebra II, Trigonometry, Calculus and Statistics. He is the standard I hold up my other tutors to. He shows up on time, teaches very intuitively and my students walk away from each session with him feeling better about themselves. As a person, I find Reza to be a wonderful role model who volunteers many hours each week at the tutoring lab, teaching math to many students on campus.

We are pleased to write a referral for tutor extraordinaire, Mr, Chris Morris-Lent. To provide a well-rounded feedback, this referral encompasses our daughter’s experience as well as ours as parents. Mr. Morris-Lent's dedication and integrity towards helping students bring to fore the best in themselves is noteworthy. He emphasizes that the desired outcome from tutoring is a collaborative effort on the part of the student and tutor. Mr. Morris-Lent discussed the trials and triumphs of our daughter’s learning experiences, educational and career aspirations. He devised ACT/SAT tests prep program catered to our daughter's specific needs. He is approachable and timely in communicating with students; and providing progress information to the guardians/parents. This is a perk that very few, if any, ACT/SAT tutors or educational centers offer. Mr. Morris-Lent recognizes the importance of his role as a “guiding force” in influencing the educational endeavors of his students. He respects guardians/parents’ impelling positive impact in the educational voyage of their children. He is innately gifted in his ability to connect with his students and their families. The hallmark of a great tutor is the ability to connect with the student, help re-contextualize tasks into elemental areas, calibrate methods to solve the tasks, cultivate new habits (and “think outside the box”), and seek knowledge through centripetal (i.e, the desired ACT/SAT score) and centrifugal (i.e, the effect of achieving the desired score on aspirations - acceptance into the colleges of one’s choices, scholarships, etc., and considering the positive impact of one’s actions on the world)) forces. Tutoring with Morri-Lent, our daughter's test scores soared exponentially! We unequivocally recommend Mr. Morris-Lent's tutoring services to others. Best regards, The Cooks

My daughter had a “D” in AP Calculus when she started to work with Ahmed. He had to reteach foundational concepts and within 2 1/2 months she has a chance to earn an “A” for the semester. Ahmed is a patient, highly knowledgeable, effective teacher. I would wholeheartedly recommend him as a tutor. We were so impressed with his results, we have him tutoring my younger daughter as well!

We worked with Ahmed to help with my son's SAT math and we're very happy with Ahmed's work. Ahmed was able to identify my son's weak subjects and explain math concept very well. We can see more tutoring sessions with Ahmed for my son's future math classes and tests.

    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.
