Carl is an excellent tutor. We hired him for sat prep plus his ability to help our son catch up on his studies. He is very knowledgeable on what kids need help on and how to engage them. Our son loves working with him and wants to learn. We chose Carl because he has tremendous experience as an educator plus has an east coast background which was extremely important to us. He has proven to be a wise choice and we are so happy to be working with him. A month into this we are very happy. As parents, we have made the right decision. Carl is an excellent teacher. He is tough, challenging and inspiring. Even as two ivy-league graduates, we respect his advice on our son in regards to grammar and literature. Overall, we are extremely pleased with our decision.

Joyee is a fantastic tutor who is laser-focused on coaching and guiding young students the right way to maximize test scores. He helped my son achieve a near perfect SAT score on his very first try and was especially helpful in the EBRW section. His coaching techniques are excellent and helped my son focus on the key areas that he needed to. I'd highly recommend Thinque Prep to anyone and would reach out to Joyee again if my son needed help in any of his subjects. It also helps immensely that Joyee in well-versed in coaching most subjects. Thanks, Joyee for all the help!

I feel compelled to share a great "find" we made last year. School had only been in session for two weeks before my kids came home lamenting that their AP Physics teacher left them totally confused and stressed out. Switching to a less demanding schedule wasn't an option so I decided to look for some help. Lord knows, it wasn't going to come from me or my husband! I found Daniel, a 2012 UCLA engineering grad who has been tutoring for many years. After the boys' first meeting with him, the level of stress in our household plummeted and the boys did well on their first physics test. We've decided to have him come regularly, just to make sure the boys understand the material and keep them confident. The boys ended up with A's in the class and doing well on the AP test. Daniel was able to help them with anything they didn't get in their calculus class as well. So as you stare the next school year in the face, if your child has any difficulty with their studies, especially in math or physics, consider talking to Daniel. He's a lovely young man and the boys really responded to him well.

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.

Jeff helped us out with SAT prep. He was always on time - literally on the dot. His service is top notch. We were looking for a competitive program and have been burned by Compass. Jeff is a professional and got the job done. From beginning to end, a 350 point rise in score.

Cindy is an absolute visionary. I am a senior in high school, and I met Cindy a few months before I began this school year. My strengths academically are mainly in reading, writing, social studies, and philosophy, but Cindy has enhanced my knowledge and appreciation for mathematics, science, and my capabilities in problem solving as a whole. When I first met Cindy, I was in desperate need of a math tutor, but what I received was more than I could have ever imagined. Aside from her outstanding mathematical capabilities, Cindy has served as my mentor, ultimate problem solver, entrepreneurial guru, and ultimate inspiration throughout my college prep and application process. As a fellow performer, and actress, Cindy also has helped me explore my passion for theatre, and expand it to become a flourishing intrigue with anthropology, psychology, and motivational speaking. She is literally the reason that I am now travelling as a motivational speaker/ Body Positive facilitator to youth, ranging from middle school to high school. In offering her invaluable time, ambitious mindset, and incredibly compassionate demeanor, she has allowed me to find my true passions, and encourage others to do the same. Furthermore, Cindy is beyond this world amazing. Whether to call her an angel, an oracle, a goddess, a reincarnated Albert Einstein, or any other form of awe, I am not worthy to concretely say. However, I can attest that Cindy has absolutely changed my vision for myself and the world around me, my societal views and aspirations, as well as having enhanced my mathematical and test taking capabilities. Truly, Cindy is the most wonderful, kind, creative, talented, and intelligent essence, one could ever hope to meet or aspire to become.

I started working with Stable Genius Prep in January to prepare for the General GRE. We assessed right away that the Quantitative material was my weak spot, and where I'd need the most help. I'm the type of person who really has to be able to understand something before I can master it, and I don't naturally think mathematically. In other words I can't just memorize formulae and when to apply them. Andrew was excellent with this. Even when I got answers right, he would make sure to go over with me what the principles were behind the problem. He has clearly had much experience tutoring pupils. Perhaps what had the most impact on me, and on my desire to work hard, was the patience he exhibited; it may have not even registered with him, but I noticed it. In the beginning I worked at an excruciatingly slow pace through everything from Arithmetic to Statistics and Probability. It took two hours just to get through ten problems. By the end of our prep, I was able to work through the same number of questions in about 15-20 minutes, and at a high level of difficulty. While my essay writing is normally solid, it was difficult to exhibit that within the 30 minute time limit. Andrew reviewed my practice essays with me and really helped me to develop strategies to write strong essays that follow the test instructions within the time allotted. Ultimately my Math score went from the 48th percentile up to the 83rd percentile! I couldn't be happier with my experience, and with the results we were able to get. I say "we" because by the end I felt like we were a team, with Andrew as my coach. He is a master of the material, and he understands how to teach it effectively. I definitely recommend Stable Genius Prep to anyone looking not only to get over a certain threshold, but to really maximize their potential and do as well as they possibly can!

Evan began working with our daughter to prep for the ISEE High School Placement Test. He was patient and very structured in attacking the materials that needed to get covered for her test prep. They made very good progress and she improved significantly in understanding how to take the test and the materials. She ended up with very good scores on her test. In the process of working with our daughter, we asked if he could help with our 5th grade son who struggles with reading comprehension. He began working with our son in helping him develop a better understanding of what he is reading. My son has improved since working with Evan and is enjoying reading much more than before he started working with Evan.

    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.

    About

    My specialty with the pro-literacy programs, classrooms, group dynamics as well as tutoring and preparing learners for testing has been reading, math and art. I also specialize in utilizing creative learning and test-taking anxiety techniques with individuals who learn differently. I realize and recognize the challenges and struggles often experienced during the learning process; therefore, communication is vital! We will establish goals and by-when dates during the initial meeting. Reaching goals and learning how to exercise your potential is most important. Students who are committed to their stated goals will do well but will be challenged with homework assignments. Completion of challenging but not overwhelming homework is a key component to the learning process for the learner as well as for the teacher/tutor. I pride myself in providing reasonable accommodations as needed, maintaining a flexible schedule and being prompt. My expectations include reciprocal respect, open communication and sharing real concerns. I care enough to give constructive feedback and expect the same from each individual I work with. My cancellation policy is a 24-hour notice for both of us. We can always reschedule for another time when we both are available. Three consecutive absences will cause for an assessment, reevaluation and redetermination. Your success is what really matters. I will always check in with you to see how things are going and hope that you will share any concerns as well. I believe in a quiet learning environment, such as a library, for best results. Distractions such as phone calls can disrupt progress. I'm looking forward to partnering with you as we diligently work towards your desired goals.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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.

    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.
