My daughter elected this year, against the recommendation of her school, to take two difficult math courses in the same year. With Sailie’s tutoring, she has excelled in both subjects and maintained her straight A status. She often has the highest test score in the class, sometimes receiving the only “A”. She told me, “Mom, getting Sailie was the best decision. She makes things so easy to understand!” Thanks, Sailie!!!!!

    I was first looking for a tutor to come to my house but this was more convenient and less costly. Great results on my son’s math tutoring.

    I had the most amazing experience with Donna! She was so easy to work with and really made all of my tutoring sessions very positive. My GRE scores drastically raised after only three weeks of working with her! I would recommend her services to anyone, and will miss meeting with her weekly!

    I hired Mr. Edwards for tutoring in College Algebra. I have not started my class yet, but Mr. Edwards has already been helpful in meeting with me one night a week to get me ready for when I do start class in the Spring. He is very easy going which makes it really easy to talk to him and ask questions. I would recommend Mr. Edwards to anyone who was looking for a math tutor!

    High school juniors have challenges in general. Watching my daughter's grit to maintain honor roll, raise College entrance scores while math teachers apathetically ignore or push back on her efforts is unacceptable and beyond frustrating. Grace Peil has proven invaluable and the results show. Since tutoring began my daughter has a clearer understanding of concepts, test taking, maintains an A in math and has increased her comprehensive entrance score by 3 points. More than that, Grace is kind and extraordinarily motivating, balancing student accountability with enthusiastic encouragement and an unyielding commitment to lobbying for fair treatment by teachers. I would highly recommend Student Society to any student in need.

    Kelsey tutored both of my sons in math. Kelsey started tutoring one son in high school in 2016. He tutored my other son during the summer. Besides being smart, Kelsey is kind and patient. He has a gentle way about him that his students respond well to. Not only does he understand math, but he is able to explain math problems to his students in a way that they can understand. He would still be tutoring my son in high school, but Kelsey and his family moved to another state.

    Woody is kind first of all. Gentle and kind. His math knowledge is a given, but his ability to teach is a gift. He even laughed a few times which was great considering how "unfunny" Algebra is.

    Walt was amazing with my 8 yr. old daughter, he was patient with her and found ways to help her better understand the math she is currently learning. He was also on time and very pleasant. Most importantly, my daughter likes him :)

        Carrie helped my daughter prepare for her SAT retest and we are very excited about the results. She really understood the test rather than just teaching random skills for high school.

        Simply put, I am a higher caliber tutor than others. I am a high-performance student myself, having graduated in the top 10% of my class with numerous awards and scholarships. I mastered math, science, economics, and the humanities with A grades in all. Now I'm a law student, which separates me from the typical tutor you find on Craigslist-- a kid one year older than your student who likes to do calculus. I consider myself a professional who will help your student reach their goal in a systematic way.


        If you don't get it, I'll help you find your way. I'll help you speak math not rote memorization of arithmetic.


        I have experience tutoring middle school and high school mathematics classes and special areas of student needs.

        I offer reading, writing, and test prep tutoring services to all ages. After graduating with honors from Lesley University with an M.Ed. in English Education, I worked for three years as an English teacher. During this time, I taught English 8, English 10, English 12, AP Language & Composition, Creative Writing, and SAT Reading & Writing. I also taught after school and weekend SAT Prep sessions. I am a licensed educator for English 8-12 in both Massachusetts and Texas. I also hold a supplementary license in special needs education in Texas. Additionally, I have experience working with both special needs students and English language learners. I left teaching when my husband's job moved us to Colorado and we decided to have a baby. I've been working as a freelance writer and editor for over a year. However, I miss working with students and am looking to expand my services into tutoring.


        I became a math tutor 10 years ago. I have a BS in math and education and recently earned my MS in math from the University of Denver.


        I am a high school math teacher at Heritage High School in Littleton, CO. I have been tutoring for many years. I love working with students, helping them understand their math.

        I think I'm different because I used to have the same situation with my customer. The solution I have will be easier to apply for my student. I will make my student think they can be excellent at math.

        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.
