Over the past 4 years, Sarah Wright has tutored 2 of my children and myself in various areas of math ranging from math SAT prep to advanced graduate level Statistics and several areas in-between! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Sarah's teaching abilities and her level of knowledge in all areas of math. She is truly gifted in tutoring under even the most challenging of circumstances. She is incredible at deciphering a students learning style and knowing how to approach teaching them to achieve the best result. Sarah's dedication, patience and knowledge are truly amazing. The results from sarahs tutoring are excellent and I highly recommend her.

Michelle is an exceptional Tutor who has helped my son with Math on various occasions. Her approach is very personable, as she takes relatively difficult topic such as Math, and makes it fun and exciting for my son. As a result, I have seen a drastic improvement in his comprehension of the subject. Additionally, she has even taken the initiative to help him with other subjects in his class when there is time left over from her tutoring, and the Math homework is already complete. I strongly recommend Michelle to anyone who is in the market searching for a Tutor with the solid credentials.

My daughter took the SAT three times on her own and received 1060, 1080, and 1100. She really wanted to get to 1250+ because that score would make it a near certainty that she could get accepted by her top-choice colleges. Dane did a 10-week SAT prep course with my daughter, which resulted in her scoring a 1280 on the SAT. Dane was professional, reliable, and supportive, and my daughter was very comfortable with him because it was clear that he truly wanted her to succeed. Several of my neighbors used tutors from large local tutoring companies that were much more expensive than Dane, but their kid's results --- while positive --- were not nearly as good as my daughter's results were. The experience, overall, was outstanding for both me and my daughter and I will definitely hire Dane again when my younger children need tutoring.

Steven Greene tutors our son, who is a junior in high school. His teaching style, especially in chemistry and physics, helped our son grasp the information with ease. We also have Steven going over SAT strategies to prepare for the upcoming test. From a parent's point of view, Steven is very professional, can relate to our son, always available by phone or email, if needed, and after each session, updates us with what material he went over and the progress our son is making.

Helped me improve my writing/reading scores drastically. My PSAT score was 1420 before tutoring. My SAT score was 1520 after tutoring. She mostly helped by motivating me to consistently take practice tests and by identifying my problem areas.

Neil Grobman is a great tutor. Neil tutored me in the reading and writing portions of the SAT. We had lessons each week. He introducesd and elaborated on a different topic at each lesson. At the end, Neil assigns word parts and an essay for homework which helped to furthur expand the concepts. Neil made sure that he answers all of my questions and concerns. If he did not know the answer, Neil finds any sources that provides the answer. Neil provides an unique way to boost vocabulary, attack the essay, and complete the passage based questions. I have learned a lot from Neil and I recommend him to anyone in need of a responsible and dedicated tutor.

Bryan is the best tutor I've ever used for my kids (for SSAT and SAT testing). He is a teacher who really understands the learning process. His ability to teach, target problem areas and explain concepts is outstanding. There was a significant improvement in the pre/post results for both my kids. Beyond standardized testing Bryan's subject knowledge (of many areas) is exceptional. He has patience and a manner that really makes kids want to learn. I attribute my kids' success to this trait, in that there was never any stress involved. I highly recommend his tutoring services.

    Laura is very friendly and welcoming. She is easy to understand and easy to learn from. I learned so much about SAT and ACT strategies, which helped my time management on the test. I got into my number one school, and 9 out of 11 schools that I applied to. I definitely wouldn't have been able to do that without Laura!

      I cannot even put into words how much [my tutor] helped me. I improved my score by 140 points, so far have been accepted into 10 out of 12 schools. I have received $100,000 scholarships. And I have absolutely no doubt that a massive contribution to my acceptances and scholarships was my SAT score. Thank you so much for the personalised tutoring, and for the help in achieving such an improvement between my first and second scores!

      Let's face it: the college admissions process is stressful enough, but the SAT doesn't have to be. How to reduce the stress? Know what to expect and feel confident that you are ready for whatever could come your way. My philosophy as a tutor is to give students the tools and guidance they need to get their best possible scores. I do this by focusing not only on test strategies, but also on the content of the exam. I work closely with students and parents to develop a study plan that meets the student's needs and talents. There is no one-size-fits-all here. Over the past eight years, I have tutored over one thousand students on all sections of the SAT. My students are from all walks of life and academic backgrounds, from inner city public schools to the most elite private school. I am successful as a tutor, because I believe that every student can learn to master the exam. As part of my philosophy of approaching every student as an individual, I have developed an expertise in working with students with learning differences. Over the past few years, I have had the opportunity to tutor many students who received accommodations on the exam due to ADHD, Asperger's, dyslexia, and other diagnoses. I work closely with these students and their parents to develop an approach to the exam that compliments their learning styles and makes the best use of their specific accommodation. Do you have questions? Do you want to know more about me and my teaching style? Please get in touch. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you.

      I would like to facilitate learning as a guide and coach to assist the students to become an independent learner. I have my Master's Degree in Computer Science and also was a teaching assistant in graduate school. I taught pre-calculus and calculus 1 to students doing undergrad in my graduate school. All the classes had anywhere between 20 to 50 students.

      About

      Hi! My name is Dave. If you are looking for a math, chemistry, or SAT tutor, I would be happy to help you! Math and chemistry have always been my strongest subjects in school. I was a member of competitive math teams growing up. I received high marks in all my math and chemistry courses at Ursinus College, and I worked in several chemistry labs around the world. I received a perfect 800 SAT score on the math section, so math and chemistry come second nature to me. I also received a 700 on the verbal section and have experience tutoring it, so I can help you with that too. As for my experience, I have tutored for over five years. I tutored math and chemistry all throughout college. I worked at Huntington Learning Center for a year, where I tutored the SAT math section. I also traveled to South Korea for six months to tutor the SAT math and writing sections and the SAT II chemistry and history tests. After that, I have been freelancing, and that eventually brought me to Thumbtack. All of my students drastically improved their scores and grades, and I'd be happy to help you improve yours. Each student learns in his or her own unique way. The tutor must be able to adapt to this and to the student's personality. I am, in general, an empathetic and patient person, so I can quickly adapt and figure out fun ways to help you learn quickly and effectively. My availability is flexible. I'm free most weekday evenings and anytime on weekends. I'd be happy to meet at a place of your choice. Please let me know if I can be of help! Take care and best of luck with your studies. Dave

      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.
