I selected Darryl Marquettte to assist my daughter Makenzie with her SAT preparation after interviewing several other individuals and companies. I made the right choice! Darryl was personable and professional. He was thorough and efficient, all while making sure he went at a comfortable pace for my daughter. We are looking forward to seeing an increase in her math score! I have already recommended Darryl and A Success Academy to several of my friends and coworkers and plan on hiring him to tutor my 10th grade son Myles as well.

Mr Gathany worked with my daughter on test prep for the SAT. He communicated with me every step of the way on the areas that needed improvement and also gave the work to build those areas. Mr Gathany was always there and I do consider his work very helpful to my daughters overall score. I highly recommend Mr Grathay if you are looking for someone to help get you grades or scores up.

Everyone knows how insanely competitive getting accepted to an Ivy is these days. You really need a company like Arbor Tutors to help navigate the process. They first helped Nicholas go up from 1190 to 1560 on his SAT. They also spent a lot of time making sure all of Nicholas’s college application essays were as well written as possible. I recommend Arbor Tutors to any family with Ivy League aspirations.

Tutelage is a second family to me. The teachers and students here are all extremely committed to working together towards a better education– there couldn’t be a better environment in which to prepare for the SAT or any other subject. Not only did they help me score a 2390 on the SAT, but I also gained new friends and a better attitude towards education. I would not be where I happily stand today if it were not for Tutelage.

Kelsey Gentry has been tutoring both of my high school daughters. She has tutored my freshman in Honors Algebra since the beginning of the school year. She has helped my daughter to bring her grade up from a C to an A. She also tutors my senior daughter in SAT strategies. My daughter took the SAT and felt confident that she scored well with Kelsey's strategies. Kelsey has been great with my girls and is able to help them achieve their academic goals. One of the best tutors we've ever had.

Renee is an exceptional SAT and ACT tutor! The proof is in the test scores. I hired her for my son and daughter. After working with her, my daughter's verbal score increased by 120 pts. My son, who has ADD, increased his ACT score by 10 pts. We went through two other tutors-college kids from Kaplan and Princeton. Neither of them had these results and quite frankly, they were a ripoff in price. Renee is an innovator who personally connects with students. She's committed and passionate about teaching. She was a big influence in giving my son self-esteem about his testing abilities. That was worth every penny. Virus-free. www.avast.com

I recommend In-Home Tutors, as our experience was fantastic. My son was tutored for SAT Prep for the verbal/writing sections, and the tutor was experienced, knowledgeable and professional. The tutor communicated well with us, had great suggestions for improvement and was always on time. If we need a tutor again, I will definitely contact In-Home Tutors.

About

I know how to improve SAT scores! No, I did not score an 800 on Math. I missed one item and got a 770. So, there are people smarter than me, but I do know how to raise scores, and I do know how people make mistakes. My Asian mother, who is a professor in statistics, made me endure a SAT boot camp for one week. I raised my score on the math section from a 670 to a 770. She taught me all sorts of tips and tricks on how to take the SAT. Now, it is my turn to pass on what I learned to you! If you want to raise your score or learn how to strategically take the SAT, I can help. Try me out! If you like it, I can officially be your boot camp trainer.

About

I can tutor SAT/ACT prep and high school, as well as middle school math and science. I have previously worked for a professional tutoring company as a paid college tutor and as a volunteer tutor in public schools.

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.
