Our daughter has only done one session with Marissa at InSight so far but we are thrilled with how it went. We thought we were hiring an SAT tutor but Marissa is so much more. She is very experienced in the whole college application process as well and is coaching our daughter on how to apply for -- and get accepted to -- her favorite schools.

I met Arnie in the company I'm currently work for. He was my English tutor and we have 1-hour class once a week. Arnie helped me a lot with my English pronunciation and presentation skills. Now I'm much more confident of talking to my colleagues during work and giving presentations in company meetings.

    Damien helped me immensely with test prep. He explained difficult concepts in very easy to understand ways that helped me visualize the answer during the exam. Obviously he’s very knowledgeable but his patience and flexibility in working with me was superb. Thank you so much for all of your help!!

    I recently took piano lessons from Virginia's Music and Tutoring and was completely satisfied with the lessons. They were modified for my level of knowledge and everyday was filled with new and fun challenges.

      Udo is an amazing tutor. He tutored me for two very different classes. One was a first quarter physics course, and the other being a discrete mathematics course. He always hit the nail on the head with explanations and examples that really helped me succeed in both classes. He broke down complex physics problems into very simple and memorable steps and took confusing math concepts and made them easy to remember and execute. On top of that he is super friendly, nice, and very compassionate to make sure there's an great understanding of the material at hand. I wouldn't be the major I am today without him.

        About

        I am offering my services as a seasoned one-on-one SAT tutor. My qualifications: I have a bachelor's degree in Economics from the University of Maryland. For two years during college, I tutored students taking Intermediate Macro and Microeconomics. Before moving to California, I worked as an after school tutor for the Baltimore City School System. I've also been a tutor here in Santa Barbara for two years, making this my fourth year of test-prep tutoring. In my experience with major test prep companies, I have found that SAT tutors generally receive about ten hours of training and teach dogmatically from a set curriculum. This amount of training is inadequate and the curriculum taught is too rigid to allow for the realization of maximum potential in a student. A student needs an instructor that has worked through a multitude of test questions and has independently developed multiple strategies for approaching even the most difficult SAT questions with confidence, comfort, and ease. It is a source of personal pride for me to say that I have worked through the vast majority of test prep material on market and separated the quality training material from the fluffy dross that populates the bookshelves at your local bookstore. I have developed my own style of SAT training that is custom tailored to every student. In just a few hours, my students command a complete understanding of the test itself and many strategies used to improve (and later perfect) overall scores. From there I focus on building skills quickly and effectively through intense "answer and review" sessions that improve scores every single lesson. Every student has strengths and weaknesses when it comes to taking the SAT. Our goal together will be to identify weak points quickly and to fill in those gaps with directed practice. The rates I offer are quite reasonable and I teach from many convenient locations in the Santa Barbara area. If you are interested, contact me via email or phone and I will schedule a time for us to meet. Also, find me on craigslist.

        About

        I first started tutoring students when I became a Teacher's Aid at University of California, Santa Cruz. Since then I have held both one-on-one and group tutoring sessions through the university in math, economics and science. I have also taught English as a second language, and have taken extensive coursework in Spanish. I am patient, work well with all different levels of students, and believe that having a good relationship with your teacher is a key to learning well.
