You can't ask for a better tutor than the one we got. We ended up doing in-home tutoring and the tutor was very kind and courteous and knowledgeable.

Michael's program is great. All the other people just wanted to tutor or sit down and do homework with him but what my son needs is to learn how to study on his own, which Michael's service teaches him how to do. Thanks!

As the tag lines says, "Bill Knows Math"! We hired him for SAT math prep and we purchased the book he recommended, which he knows backwards and forwards. He leads very energetic tutoring sessions revealing his passion for helping kids learn the content. My daughter was more engaged than I've normally seen her with math. His help provided her the confidence she needed for the SAT.

Eric tutored my daughter in Calculus II for about 8 weeks. He was always courteous/respectful, responsive, and timely. He was also flexible, willing to change the tutoring dates/times to accommodate our fluctuating schedules. My daughter’s Calculus II grade went from a D to B.

Dale was a great ACT tutor, especially when it came to teaching an international student the ins and outs of the Reading and Writing sections. Since we started working two weeks before the test date, Dale laid out a great strategy of drilling practice tests and helped us find our weak points to review. He had a great base of resources and experience to help us not only with tactics and test taking skills, but how we could apply these study techniques to a broad range of tests and classes.

    I needed lots of help with SAT math as I hadn't learned several of the concepts involved and Anna was incredibly patient and helpful. She talked me through various ways to approach each problem and made sure I actually understood the ideas involved with problems and their solutions. Anna was really reassuring when I got frustrated and she made me a lot more confident about SAT math and essays.

    Edward is currently tutoring my 7th grader in Algebra 1. My son told me that Edward not only teaches the mechanics but also gives him the explanation as to why. Edward uses an iPad during sessions and emails the notes after each session. Edward is also very nice and personable!

    My daughter is an elementary school students. At one of the teacher-parent meetings last school year we were informed that she has difficulties with understanding certain maths concepts. We decided to find a tutor for her so the problems don't get any worse. We contacted Ms Dominika and she helped our daughter understand the things she had issues with. The atmosphere during their meetings was so friendly that our daughter not only learn a lot but also had fun doing it.

      Jessica was very helpful in preparing me for my ACTs as well as my SAT. In a little over a month, we raised my ACT composite score by 3 points! Jessica gives several strategies that help you during the exam and makes you feel very confident that you can do well. Aside from the preparation, Jessica was also very kind and it was very clear that her main goal is for everyone to do their best, which made me enjoy our sessions together. She was also very accommodating to any schedule changes and could fix around her schedule to make sure that I had a session.

          Pure math is my focus, and I can offer solid tutoring for anyone having trouble in a pre-college course, any undergrad mathematics course, and a first course in abstract algebra for grad students. As far as the more advanced courses are concerned, I am very proficient at real analysis, abstract algebra, and number theory. I have a little experience with complex analysis. No need to struggle with precalculus, calculus, linear algebra, or any of the other courses I mentioned!

            Our daughter improved significantly on her SAT Math score after having 6 weeks of individual tutoring. We are going to schedule more tutoring prior to the next SAT too given the outstanding results. Normally after any kind of tutoring the most you can hope for is an increase of no more than 50 points but her score went up 70 points!! And, she very much enjoyed her experience with Club Z's tutors. I would highly recommend this organization as they are very flexible schedule wise and the tutors are so helpful and fun. Thank you Club Z!!

            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.
