I weekly go to Andrea Crews for math and science tutoring. I have been going to her since 8th grade and I am currently a senior in high school. She explains concepts in a way that is easy to comprehend and she is so familiar with the types of questions teachers ask that she can make up her own problems for additional practice. She is a great tutor with lots of patience with a genuine desire to help her students. I would recommend Andrea for tutoring any day of the week.

Arlene is tutoring my 7 years old nephew in ESOL. She is very attentive and kind to the boy. He previously had problems in school with the language and home assignments, had been very reluctant to even go to school and have any social contacts due to his inability to express himself. Arlene helped him a lot, he became more self-confident and eager to learn. She is not only teaching him the words and grammar, she is making sure that he is getting rid of his foreign accent. And it helps a lot with the bulling problem in school. Thank you, Arlene, for the life-changing experience.

My daughter and I were very comfortable with his tutoring practices. He pre assessed her and showed her various strategies on which to rely. I was only going to have him tutor her for one hour per week but after having met him, I increased it to two hours. My daughter really likes the way he explains math to her. I'm very impressed!

About

Curiosity and discovery have brought me great joy and freedom that I have been compelled to share with others from the moment I could speak. And I have found the fulfillment of celebrating another's success through my teaching is just as sweet as having succeeded myself. After graduating cum laude in mechanical engineering, I completed a master's degree in engineering, teaching and counseling undergraduate students along the way. After graduate school, I taught introductory engineering at a local technical college. The way that I tutor is particular to the student and based on three distinct goals. First, I learn in what ways my pupil learns best so I can personalize the learning plan to the student. Second, I apply this style of teaching with each lesson until the student is confident enough to teach others the lesson himself. Then third, I transform the student's view until they see the lesson in the world around them--a mathematical formula in the way that the leaves move with the wind or a rhetorical strategy in the body language of two people chatting at the park. It is in applying knowledge that words on a page become truly powerful and the efforts of learning become fruitful. Through the study of engineering that lasted seven years and a career in engineering ever since, I have mastered many branches of mathematics such that I can see the math in the world around me. I make a living applying math.

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 have a Bachelor of Arts' degree in English. I believe that teaching is more than imparting knowledge – it is inspiring change. Good teaching fosters sense of student control over learning and interest in the subject matter. I create learning tasks appropriate to the student’s level of understanding. I also recognize the right the uniqueness of individual learners and avoid the temptation to impose “mass production” standards that treat all learners as if they were exactly the same. In order for learning to occur, students need to connect to their own prior knowledge. Connections are like building bridges between the old and new. This building bridge can be brief or in-depth as long as it serves the needs of all learners. Reassessment determines prior knowledge whereas connections provides the link between old knowledge and new knowledge. I have been teaching AP Spanish and English for 20 years including two years at the middle school level. Each student learns differently and I always adjust my methods in order to get the best results from each learner. 98% of my students raised their English / Spanish AP grade from D to A; you/your child can, too. The role of a tutor is to help the student help himself. Tutoring is the short term answer to help the student gain confidence and learning skills. In other words, my objective is more than rote learning; it is about making connections to the real world. I include appropriate character development with real world connections with every lesson. Overall, I am trained to differentiate any lesson through scaffolding techniques, as well as rigorous assessment, making sure to present appropriate and leveled instruction. I look forward to meeting your student to see if we have an academic fit. There's a lot I love about being a teacher. Teaching is one of those rare professions that keeps your brain young, allowing you to continue your own journey as a student and a lifelong learner. Teaching is a job that encourages your own growth because to do it well requires your own continuous education. In my ten years of teaching, I learned more from other teachers, my students, and their parents than I learned from any class in my teacher-credential program. (True, that's not difficult to do -- but that's another post.) In turn, when they saw my own enthusiasm for learning, students were more inclined to learn from me. And that's how my own happiness and growth has translated into the success of my 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.
