Carla has been tutoring my two daughters for years now. She is not only highly competent and capable in any field she tackles, but she also has an uncanny ability to discern what exactly a child needs to do in order to help her achieve. Carla is incredibly intelligent and she has a kind soul that my children connect with. She is always patient and knows that each one of my girls has different needs and she adapts her tutoring accordingly. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this young lady. She is always on time, she is trustworthy and gentle and amazingly in tune with each one of my children. I recommended her to several of my friends and they are all very happy. They always give her rave reviews. Carla is a gifted teacher and you would be most lucky if she tutors you or your child.

Cheryl is a pro at tutoring... offers easy to understand strategies that effectively improve understanding. My high schooler is being tutored for SAT and ACT test taking and Cheryl was impressive from the first session. She is friendly but stays on task and gets the most out of an hour lesson. She is dependable, reliable, informative, knowledgeable, experienced and has the ability to identify the student's best way of learning and teaches to that style/need. I highly recommend Chery for any type of tutoring, she is an ultimate professional.

Dave helped tutor me in college algebra when I was struggling to remember some of the concepts I learned in high school. He was super friendly, patient, and easy to talk to. He never once made me feel dumb when I didn't understand something and always walked me through the topics at a pace I was comfortable with. The best part was he taught me new ways of learning the subject that really clicked for me unlike the way my professors taught me. I would definitely get help from Dave again in any other subject I'm struggling in.

John is thorough and prompt. He works hard in advance to be prepared for the lesson. My son enjoys working with him. Once when he wasn't available, he still cared enough to help us via the telephone with the math problems.

About

At iLearn, our goal is to bring back a love for learning by making education a personal experience. We tutor by first learning who our students are, then incorporate their likes and interests into tutoring plans that will turn each school subject into their favorite school subject. Personally, I also work as a professional photographer and videographer with the goal of making full fledged wildlife documentaries. Integrative Biology is my passion and it has led me to explore many scientific topics that I now strive to combine with art to deliver to the public. I have a particular interest in Quantum theory and Relativity as a hobby as well. Science, for me, is a fun way of understanding the world around us and being able to interact with it in the best way possible. I am here to share that perspective with you and look forward to assisting you in your academic journey.

About

I give private tutoring lessons in Math, Reading, Writing, Grammar and Test-taking Strategies for the SAT, ACT, PSAT, SSAT, GED, TABE, ASVAB and ISEE exams.

About

I provide in-home tutoring. I have worked with students in small groups of three to four to help develop their basic reading and writing skills. I also have helped individual students prepare for exams like the SAT, ACT, GED, GRE, and GMAT. I will give filled out evaluations and reports to chart students' progress.

About

We assist students in grades K through college in a wide variety of subject matters, including college prep courses, ACT, and SAT.

About

I am a certified elementary school teacher. I have knowledge of common core, SAT, and FCAT. I have 16 years of teaching experience.

About

I am a graduate student who has four years of teaching experience. I soon and will be able to tutor students in the Tampa area starting July 8th. I am certified to teach middle and high school math, and I have also tutored several students in SAT and ACT prep. I have a passion for science and literature and love to get book suggestions from family and friends. For my undergraduate degree, I attended New College of Florida and studied anthropology/archaeology. I loved working with adolescents, so after graduating I worked as a middle school math teacher. I know how hard it is to make sure every student gets the individual attention they deserve, so as a tutor it is my goal to give my students the focused help they need to be successful. I have a strong math background. In addition to being certified to teach math grades 6-12, I scored a 760 out of 800 on the math section of the SAT and a 163 out of 170 on the GRE quantitative reasoning section. The most important part of teaching math, however, is being able to explain the basic connections between new material and what the student already knows. That is a skill I developed as a math teacher and use now as a tutor.

About

I am tutoring Algebra 1, Algebra 2, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, calculus, and physics to middle school, high school, college, and university students.

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.
