LEAH IS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!! I have a 19 year old son who needed extra help with Math, preparing for his ACT. Leah took the time in the beginning to find out how he learns and what style works best for him. This key!!! She is well prepared and takes her tutoring seriously. I can honestly say for the first time he comes home feeling confident about what he is learning he is not intimidated, not afraid to ask questions. First time learning Math without becoming frustrated. Highly recommend Leah, she is an excellent teacher, she is patient, soft spoken and really cares about what she is doing!! THANK YOU LEAH BERL!!!

Dane provided ACT/SAT tutoring services to my HS Junior daughter and son this last winter and he was great. Both kids responded well to his direction, communication and advice. He was always professional, on time and very responsive through the entire process. Both kids dramatically increased their test scores with his guidance and I would highly recommend him as a tutor for the ACT/SAT process.

Michael provided college Calculus tutoring in person to my twins during the holiday Winter break, to prepare them to repeat Calculus in the Spring term, as they both struggled and failed when they were initially exposed to Calculus in college in the Fall. He will continue to be available remotely during the Spring to help them as needed while they are away in college. Michael was a fantastic tutor, and was very patient with them. My twins learned a lot from him, and he was able to identify some gaps in their knowledge. He simplified and clarified a lot of the basic concepts, and this should help tremendously as they are retaking Calculus in the Spring. I highly recommend him without any reservations.

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.

    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!

    My 7th grade year in Algebra I Honors, I started to face adversity when it came to critical thinking and analyzing my materials for exams. I contacted Dianne Le and ever since the first session I have changed my work ethic and have become a better individual. Although the rigor tried to take over and frustrate/limit my abilities, Dianne knew how to teach me to limit my stress and make outlines instead of burning out. Whenever my normal teachers approach on a problem did not 'click' Dianne would go out of her way to make me understand it in another way through her artistic abilities. Thanks to Dianne, I managed to raise my grade from a C to an A; later allowing me to apply to a scholarship program and get in. Later on in 8th grade whenever I needed help for my program she would always be available and often made the commute to my town regardless of her tight schedule. Right now Im in 9th grade and Dianne still reaches out and helps me out whenever I am in need. She even took her time to send me a list of service learning opportunities 2 years later!! She is no longer just my math tutor, but she has become a role model and some may even say my mentor. Kudos to her

      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!

      Dr. Fikar was exactly what my daughter needed. She had done group tutoring sessions with another tutor previously, but did not see much effect. Dr. Fikar has a tried and true method that is rigorous but fair. He is extremely patient and provides excellent explanations. I highly recommend him.

      Hello, I'm Sam Zappala. I've been a math tutor since 1998. When I work with the students, if there's an easier way; I'll inform them. This is how I gain their respect. I teach algebra, geometry and trigonometry. I will also get into SI (metrics). When working with geometry and/or trigonometry, the first formulas I want them to remember are: a^2+b^2=c^2, for right triangles; and a/sin?=b/sin?=c/sin?, for all triangles. I've been working with numbers since I was a teenager. When I was putting myself through school, I was working in a warehouse. I would do the math in my head before somebody else could punch it into a calculator. I've got the ability; now I need to pass it on. I have an MD in Mechanical Engineering. Please see the resume. I also designed several tools. I am now attempting to get one on the market.

      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.
