Lisa is one of the best writing tutors that I have ever had. She is smart, kind, and believes in every single one of her students. I first started working with Lisa to prep for the ACT. She always believed in me and encouraged me to keep working towards my goals. After getting through the ACT, Lisa helped me with my college application and supplemental essays. She helped me to get my vision into solidified and ideas. She has a hyper focus on making sure that her students voice is heard. Her respect and confidence in me is what made me believe in myself and my work.

Kathie was wonderful with my daughter. We only had a short time to work together before my daughter had to take her ACT and because of Kathie my daughter felt prepared. Will absolutely use her again for my other daughter!

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'.

Ron is a deeply knowledgeable, professional, and polite tutor. At first, I was a bit apprehensive about hiring and meeting a private tutor, without the expensive brand guarantee of a full-service center, but Ron's friendly demeanor quickly put me at ease and assured me I had made the right choice. Additionally, he was both on time with materials in hand and ready to work as planned, as well as, flexible, accommodating, and understanding if my busy schedule required sudden change. Last, but definitely not least, his breadth of knowledge was particularly useful in helping me prepare for the SAT, as the test covers a wide range of mathematical concepts. All of which is why I would highly recommend Ron to anyone seeking help! Thanks again, Ron.

She is strong in both writing and math, achieving an 800 on her math SAT exam. Julie is a recent graduate of Washington University in St. Louis where she tutored students as part of a program called “Books and Basketball STL” in the St. Louis area. In addition, she tutored English and Math while abroad in Tanzania and Peru. During high school, Julie tutored Geometry and has knowledge of advanced mathematics due to her coursework while at Wash U. Julie is patient, relates easily to students and achieves great results with them. I highly recommend Julie for any student looking to improve their skills.

    I've been teaching and tutoring for over four years and have great experience tutoring children, teens, and adults. I teach students how to master test taking and enhance their test attitude. Attitude is fundamental to the success or failure that we experience in our life! My major focus, however, is international students as they need special approach and advice in order to succeed!

    When I was in high school I hated math - I didn't get it, and I certainly didn't understand why it was relevant to me. I believe that my struggle in high school has led me to become a tutor who understands her students' need for differentiated learning that excites the mind. My goal is to teach math in a way that makes sense to my students and to improve their problem solving skills that they can carry over into all levels of math.

    Since 2005, the average score improvement for EC Tutoring students is 210 points! Students regularly raise their scores on the SAT by 150-300+ points, with an average improvement of 210 points. Some students have gained as much as 400-500-point increases from their PSAT score. Unlike commercial prep courses, I can offer flexibility to active, busy students. Your child can’t make his/her regular class? Just let me know which other class during the week he/she can attend, and I’ll make room. I provide great results! I service the Sandwich area.

    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.
