I am very impressed with Mike's knowledge of math and with his teaching skills. He explains things clearly and is very patient. My neighbor, Trish, was studying for her CBEST test and was having problems with the math. I referred her to Mike and now she has happily passed her CBEST exam. I would recommend him to anyone looking to improve their math skills.

Joyee is an exceptional standardized test tutor. I highly recommend him. I found Joyee after an exhaustive search for help with the PSAT/SAT/ACT for my son. My son's school recommended a large national test-prep company, but after investigating that option, we didn't think it was the right fit. My student already understands these tests and has some experience taking them; he needed a person to get him to the "next level" and not waste time going over basic review/prep. Joyee provides fast-paced and completely personalized instruction. He first diagnoses where a student is along the spectrum of readiness for these tests. He zones in on problem areas and has materials ready to strengthen these areas of weakness. My son has enjoyed working with Joyee and says their sessions have definitely increased his confidence for the upcoming tests. I appreciate so many things about having Joyee work with my son. Joyee is extremely intelligent, energetic, and dedicated; he knows what's he's doing and will provide concise, clear instruction; he has a good website where he exchanges files, keeps the tutoring materials organized, etc.; he doesn't waste time during online sessions (you will get your money's worth). I'd recommend Joyee for help with your student's test prep in any circumstances, but particularly if your child is scoring towards the top end of the scoring range and he/she wants that extra boost. Our family appreciates Joyee's assistance and feels it has been very beneficial to our son.

Ahmed Shalaby is an amazing tutor for Jah my 9 year old son. He has instilled confidence in him and it has shown in his most recent test scores. The different techniques he uses are great and my son picks up on the strategies. We are currently doing twice a week on Monday and Wednesday and it has been a great investment. Jah thinks Ahmed is cool and he wants to keep showing him that he is getting smarter and doesn’t want to let him down. Thanks for all you for our family Ahmed. It’s appreciated

Alara worked with my son to help him prepare for the ACT. She was very patient, explained some concept he was struggling with and gave him some good test strategies. We were very last minute and only had a month, but his score increased 2-3 points on each subject

Verified review

Christine was referred to me by a parent from my daughter's school. My daughter was having difficulty in Math. Immediately after Christine showed up to our home for the first session, I was excited to know I'd found someone who loves teaching and more so loved Math. Christine made her feel comfortable first in knowing Math is easy when explained properly. Within the first week I saw a change in my daughter's feeling towards Math and she began to make A's on assignments and test due to Christine's one on one tutoring. My daughter is very confident and ready to tackle Algebra with Christine's help. I recommend that you choose Christine for tutoring, it will change your child's feeling about Math and they will become more confident.

After being disappointed with an ACT classroom course, I asked my parents if I could look in to private tutoring. I searched Thumbtack and worked with TutorNerds.I loved the fact that the ACT tutoring was tailored to my personal needs. I didn’t waste time on the parts of the test that I already knew. Instead, I was able to focus time on my problem areas. I would definitely recommend TutorNerds to other students like me.

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.

We started working with Strong Mind Education to improve our daughter's writing skills sometime ago. Her quick success with writing and her easy rapport with her tutor made the decision to transition to math tutoring an easy one! Strong Mind Education gives us the peace of mind that our child is getting the support she needs (she currently tests advanced in math skills), she is happy, and we as parents are spared the frustration of being unable to help with math techniques that are far different than we learned when we were in school! Without Strong Mind Education we would be lost!

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!

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!

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.

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.
