We met with Josh and learned pretty quickly that he was very knowledgeable about the SAT test. My son has only had a few sessions so far, but he has very positive things to say. He says Josh really explains things well, and he feels this tutoring is really going to help him on his SAT and in his math class. Josh has been an excellent and prompt communicator with both myself and my son. Very professional and reasonable prices.

Chema is a truly gifted tutor. I hired him to help me with my daughters 10th grade math class that she was struggling with and I was amazed at the improvement she rapidly made - even after only a few sessions with him. Her confidence grew so much I really saw how it made an impact on her other subjects as well in school. Chema is a highly professional teacher. He is trust worthy, great value for money and an all round nice person that children love and relate to. We first met Chema in the school he was teaching at and also got to encounter some of the other students he teaches Physics to and I was blown away how much the students just love him. Hire Chema for your tutoring needs, you will be so pleased you did!

Herb has been tutoring our teenage son for the past two years. Our son lacked confidence in his math skills, but he earned a solid B in algebra last year and now in geometry thanks to Herb. In addition, our son enjoys the sessions. Herb is clear, methodical, and personable. He has given our son greater confidence and skills in math.

Mathnasium is a phenomenal place! I am currently a senior at the University of Idaho and these guys were able to help me out with 400 level math classes! I had met with other private tutors who could not help me. Mathnasium is the reason I passed those classes! Thank you!

Dan was an exemplary teacher at my school for two years. He taught our high school math courses to a diverse group of students in an engaging, understandable, and motivating way. The students and staff were sad to see him go. He is one of the best math teachers with whom I have had the pleasure of working. He is committed, professional, and passionate in all he does for students.

About

As a tutor, I have gotten great feedback from both students and other tutors. One tutor listened as I was explaining key ideas from Moby Dick to a student. Afterwards, she said, "If I had had a teacher like that I would have enjoyed school more." I try to be encouraging and creative when I tutor. I include visuals, word pictures, analogies to explain concepts. I also am passionate about learning new things and love to see students succeed, and I think that gets communicated through my time with them. With writing, I love good stories. I have read a lot since I was a kid and have taught writing, graded writing, and fine tuned the way I think about writing over the years. For me, it's important to say something clearly, concisely, and in a memorable way. In short, to say it/write it well. Because communication is such a big part of the way we do relationships and business, I strive to learn every day and work hard to communicate my own ideas effectively and help others to do the same.

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.
