My son had a traumatic brain injury and missed alot of school, Nicole Ullian was a godsend in helping him get caught up and stay on track for the remainder of the school year. She is smart, compassionate and an excellent Math teacher and tutor!!! She was always on time, was willing to stay late if necessary and was very flexible if our schedule changed. I would Highly recommend her services.

Awesome tutor! I have never been able to understand math, especially calculus, and he was able to break it down and explain it better than any of my teachers. He works hard to make sure you really understand the material and have a grasp on the subject. He was able to get my test grades up from D's to a B+ in just a few sessions. I highly recommend him!

Catherine responded right away to our request for a reading/writing tutor. We started with her just a few weeks after our first contact. She has personalized the "curriculum" as needed and has been very responsive to our son's changing needs. Catherine has increased our son's confidence in many school-related areas due to her recognition and acknowledgement of his unique attributes and learning style. In this way, Catherine has gone above and beyond. The only way I would change our experience would be if the location were closer to our home.

My parents introduced me to Seleena after she taught both of my older sisters. So far, my writing ability has become stronger than before. She also helped me with SAT Prep and so on. While her mathematics aren't as strong, she teaches reading and writing very well.

About

When a client is having trouble in a particular subject, I stick with them until they get it. I'm a true believer in the adage "It takes as long as it takes." I've created novel ways to aid a student in understanding the subject; everyone doesn't learn the same way. I'm in it for the duration; in 15 years of teaching, I have never given up on a student. "Variety is the spice of life," otherwise, the world would be one boring place!

About

I tutor and have been a substitute teacher from as young as 2nd grade to every age wanting to learn. I can teach or engineer small scale stand alone photovoltaic (PV) to large scale utility interconnect design, engineer, project manager, and installation crew rolls. If you think you have the next big idea in renewable energy, bounce your idea off me, and I can explain what major engineering/manufacturer/installation you must overcome for system success, or why no one before can make "your" idea realized. I specialize in the math and sciences and show you the "tricks" to better grades and scores.

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.
