Michael has been tutoring my son in Algebra and daughter for SAT testing. His patience and ability to teach them not just how to break down math problems but why is amazing. My daughter in particular is not happy just knowing how to do something she wants to understand the logic behind it. He does an excellent job helping her with this. Moving on to English part of SAT test next and will update.

I met John using thumbtack and I received his Resume and spoke to him on the phone. My daughter was in serious need of help in math and it was behind a couple years with some things! She never received a higher grade then a 70 something on any of her math test. We met with John during the summer, once a week, she returned to school and received the highest grade in the class On her first test, I couldn't be more pleased with John! My daughter adores John and he's extremely easy for her to talk to and answers any of her questions through email!! He's very reliable and prompt and I can guarantee your child will succeed tremendously with his help!! Thanks John

I was looking for an online class and came across PrepScholar. It seemed to offer personalized service and claims of mightily improving test scores – was this too good to be true? PrepScholar was just starting up when we tried it and one of the founders, Allen, was great with answering questions and making constant improvements. We gave feedback and they responded. My son is not a natural test-taker and was able to improve his SAT score by 240 points. I didn’t think he’d be able to improve that much, but PrepScholar was true to their promise. They have an effective method that really works. The tutorials and quizzes are constantly monitoring your child’s specific needs and progress. If you are a parent that doesn’t want to spend a fortune on private SAT tutoring or have your kid languish in a large group class, PrepScholar is really worth trying. They send out progress checks every week and encourage your kids to meet their goals. They keep track of how many hours are spent on task and you can receive that update too – you will know if your kid is actually doing test prep or not! If you are thinking about signing up for an online SAT course, you should call and talk to someone at PrepScholar (keep in mind that they are on the East coast). They will answer your questions and help you feel like your kid can, not only survive the SAT, but do really well!

This program is exactly what I would have needed when I took the GMAT. The challenge with the GMAT is its adaptivity to your skill level. Therefore, a traditional prep book from the library or bookstore will inadequately prepare advanced test takers with enough difficult questions to be ready for the test. The customization of this program is perfect for the design of the GMAT. And the guarantee from PrepScholar is pretty impressive. No-brainer for anyone serious about applying to business school!

I had Daryl as an SAT tutor in preparation for the old SAT (the one still being administered). Daryl was very professional but also understanding in terms of scheduling and homework conflicts. Her advice was honest and helpful and she was patient when she had to explain things for what felt like the umpteenth time. I had such a positive experience especially for the relatively low cost and although I haven't received my scores yet, I certainly felt more confident and prepared while taking the test and firmly believe my scores will reflect how much Daryl helped me to improve. I would recommend her services to anyone planning to take the SAT's.

Linda has tutored two of my sons over the last five years. My older son was able to improve his SAT scores as well as perfect his college application essay. He got into his first college choice. My younger son had problems expressing himself in writing and started working with Linda in 8th grade. Later he studied with Linda for ACT and got into his first college choice. Overall I was impressed with Linda's professionalism, great energy and great rapport with kids. They loved studying with her. In addition I could always rely on Linda being up to date on latest changes in SAT/ACT tests, which was tremendously helpful last year. We all feel very fortunate to have Linda as our ' Language Coach'.

    Barry was a great SAT tutor. He certainly knew the material and test-taking strategies. In addition (and as important), his sincere interest and encouragement helped build my daughter’s self confidence, allowing her to approach the tests with greater calm.

    Very quick response. Thoughtful about choice of tutor to work with our daughter (who can be a challenge!). They got to work immediately on an upcoming test and my daughter did very well. Celine from Club Z has been amazing so far and obviously genuinely cares about the results. We will be hiring Club Z again!

    Gold Test Prep not only strengthened my skills but my confidence in test taking. They made preparing for the GMAT manageable and convenient. I have a job so the option to study with a tutor at a library or via Skype was a huge plus. My tutor was encouraging, helping me to set realistic goals and reach them within a limited time period. I saw considerable growth with my GMAT score from the practice exams to the extent that I only needed to take the test once. Can't thank Gold Test Prep enough, at the end of the day they produce results.

      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.

      How do I prepare for the GMAT?

      If you’re thinking of enrolling in graduate school to earn your MBA, it’s time to start thinking about preparing for the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). Working with a GMAT tutor is for many people a wise investment to help you strengthen the academic areas you may be weak in and improving your overall test score. A GMAT prep tutor should teach you not only the kind of information you need to know for the test, but the best test-taking strategies. The GMAT tests you on four categories: quantitative, verbal, integrated reasoning, and an analytical writing assessment. Cramming is probably not going to give you good results for this standardized test; give yourself between two and six months to prepare, focusing on your most challenging areas first. Successful GMAT prep means planning ahead and studying thoroughly. Those students who reported studying under 75 hours were more likely to score 400 or lower on the test, while students who studied 121 hours or more were more likely to score 700 or higher on the test. Hiring a GMAT prep tutor can range in price from under $50 to over $200 per hour.

      What is ACT test prep?

      The ACT is a college entrance exam taken by students (typically in their junior year of high school) to determine admission eligibility and merit-based scholarship eligibility. The test may be taken as many times as desired and is not limited to high school juniors. Originally the acronym stood for American College Testing, but now ACT is the stand-alone name. ACT prep is a way for students to strategically prepare for test-taking. ACT prep helps students improve scores, practice taking the test, learn test-taking strategies, and improve material comprehension. Students can get help with ACT prep tutors in one-on-one sessions, via group tutoring lessons, in online self-study programs, or online with a tutor in video calls. The ACT test covers:

      • English
      • Science understanding and reasoning
      • Math
      • Reading
      • Writing essay (optional)

      How do you prepare for the ACT?

      The ACT is a universally accepted college readiness exam. There are multiple ways to prepare for the exam. One-on-one ACT prep tutoring is one of the most effective ways for students to ready themselves for the test. A tutor who specializes in ACT prep will coach the student on the type of material they can expect while also working specifically with topics that are more challenging for that particular student. Group tutoring sessions are a more cost-effective way to reap the benefits of an ACT prep instructor; a suggestion is to gather a group of four friends or classmates to share the cost. Professional tutors often recommend that test prep begin approximately three months prior to the exam. Cramming — unfortunately — doesn’t provide the same score results as consistent study, test-related homework, and practice exams do. Weekly two-hour learning sessions are what many pro tutors suggest for their college exam prep students. For top test-taking performance, tutors usually provide work throughout the week and the weekly session is used to cement knowledge and address weak areas. Math is a hard topic for most students, so plan accordingly.

      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.
