We just recently hired Daniel. So far, he was exceptional at explaining his services and listening to my son's academic needs. We hired him in preparation for the ACT. Daniel is customizing the ACT tutoring in relation to our son's learning style. My son was very pleased with his first session with Daniel, and learned so much about strategies and the break down of the ACT, all in just one session. My son looks forward to continue working with Daniel.

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.

Quite simply Esmeralda is a miracle worker. She is a one stop shop for all your needs. Highly qualified in every subject she is also an educational therapist and particularly effective with reluctant teenage boys. As a parent, you can take s breath of relief as she has the ability to organize and focus on exactly what the student needs extra help with. I have had many tutors but never have I experienced someone so extraordinary!

Cindy Chanin understands the testing and admission process like no other. She has an extensive professional background and helped us navigate the high school admission process for our daughter, like a Ninja! Cindy invested her time and energy into our daughter and took it upon herself to get to know her. She was able to decipher what kind of learner she was and which of her tutors would be a good fit for her. For the weeks that we worked with Rainbow EDU, Cindy called everyday. She wanted feedback about the tutoring sessions and wanted our daughter to feel confident and empowered. Cindy is a student advocate and coach. Much, much more than a tutor. This is a full service operation...the real deal. Cindy Chanin...Rainbow EDU...I just lucked out...hope you do too!

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.

Before working with Marissa, I had worked with many tutors over the years for different subjects. I worked with Marissa for SAT prep and college apps. I can honestly say that she was so dedicated, fun, hardworking, and accessible. She answered many of my questions over phone and text whenever I needed her-even going the extra mile by working out a problem on her wipe board and texting a picture of it to me during her personal time. She genuinely cares about her students.. and it shows. Her program is rigorous but she gets results! My family has recommended her to many of our friends and we will continue to sing her praises.

    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.

      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

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      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.

      What is on the ACT?

      The ACT is made up of a variety of multi-choice questions under four main subject areas: English, mathematics, reading, and science. There is also the option for a written essay. For ACT prep, it’s important to study each subject. Each subject area is broken down into multiple parts to provide a comprehensive snapshot of the student’s understanding of the material. ACT prep provides an opportunity to prepare for the subject matter in each area.

      ACT English:

      • Production of writing: 29 percent-32 percent of English score. These questions focus on topic development and organization, unity, and cohesion.
      • Knowledge of language: 13 percent-19 percent of English score. This section examines the student’s use of vocabulary and effective language use.
      • Conventions of standard English: 51 percent-56 percent of English score. These questions address sentence structure and formation, punctuation and grammar, and recognition of grammatical errors and how to improve.

       

      ACT Math:

      • Preparing for higher math: 57 percent-60 percent of mathematics score. These questions cover number and quantity, algebra, functions, geometry, and statistics and probability.
      • Integrating essential skills: 40 percent-43 percent of mathematics score. These questions address comprehension of math learned prior to and after 8th grade.
      • Modeling: less than 25 percent of mathematics score. These questions examine how students use modeling skills in all math topics.

       

      ACT Reading:

      • Key ideas and details: 55 percent-60 percent of reading score. The questions test students’ ability to summarize information, draw conclusions, and grasp central themes.
      • Craft and structure: 25-30 percent of reading score. These questions examine students’ ability to understand an author’s word choice and meaning and analyze various points of view.
      • Integration of knowledge and ideas: 13-18 percent of reading score. These questions examine students’ ability to understand facts and opinions and make connections between texts that share similar themes.

       

      ACT Science:

      • Interpretation of data: 45–55 percent of science score. Students will need to analyze and manipulate scientific data presented in various formats.
      • Scientific investigation: 20–30 percent of science score. These questions will test students’ understanding of experimental tools, procedures and design.
      • Evaluation of models, inferences, and experimental results: 25–35 percent of science score.

       

      ACT Writing:

      • This is a 40-minute written essay that examines students’ competence with ideas and analysis, development and support, organization, and language use and conventions.

      What are the subjects on the ACT?

      English, mathematics, reading, and science are the four main subjects on the ACT. Writing is an optional subject students can select when they register to take the test. The subjects were determined as a way to test the sum total of knowledge and comprehension that the students have accumulated up until the start of their senior year of high school. ACT prep breaks down each subject of the ACT test so the student understands what type of questions they will encounter and to provide them with strategies for answering questions. Doing well on the ACT is not only about academic smarts. Learning the nuances of taking a standardized test can greatly improve a student’s test scores. On the ACT, each of the four subjects is broken into subsections to test the students’ understanding in that area. The official ACT website provides free online ACT prep tools for each section, including English, Math, Reading, Science, and Writing.

      How many questions are on the ACT test?

      There are 215 total questions on the ACT test. The ACT covers four academic areas and students have 175 minutes total to complete the test. For students who opt to take the ACT writing test, there will be a written essay (in addition to the standard ACT topics), which students will have 40 minutes to complete. For ACT prep, it’s wise to study the material that will be covered within each academic category and take practice tests to become comfortable with the format.

      The English test has 75 questions that must be completed within 45 minutes. The math test has 60 questions with a 60-minute time limit. The reading test has 40 questions and 35 minutes total. The science test has 40 questions that must be completed in 35 minutes. Tutors may recommend taking the test more than once as part of the ACT prep training, with the goal of improving your overall score each time. Official ACT recommendations urge students to answer each question on test day, even if it is a guess, as there is no penalty for guessing.
