What makes Julissa unique as a tutor is her unadulterated curiosity and passion for learning; it's contagious. Julissa empowers her students to learn a new language through creative ways that inspire them (song lyrics, current events, and more). I have been working with Julissa now for 7 months on Spanish and could not be more pleased with her service. She is punctual, professional, and knows exactly how to cater to your level and your interests. She also never shys away from learning something herself, which I believe makes for a very powerful tutor/tutee relationship. Anyone would be lucky to work with Julissa....absolutamente!

I could not seem to score well on the ACT. I ended up with Arbor Tutors and had a tutor who met me every week for 8 weeks and when I took the test and got an excellent score (33). Worth every cent.

Mr. Gruber is an excellent tutor for the ACT/SAT. My daughter really liked the tutoring sessions with Mr. Gruber. She found their tutoring sessions productive and helpful. Mr. Gruber is effective, flexible, punctual, professional and his tutoring really made a difference. My daughter's SAT score increased by 100 points and her ACT score increased from a 29 to a 34. We highly recommend Mr. Gruber as a SAT/ACT tutor.

Prior to tutoring, two things were holding my daughter back on the SAT- the math section and her confidence. Alex was the perfect tutor to improve both of those areas. He provided clear teaching in math that honed in on the areas where she needed the most help. He was consistently positive and encouraging, helping her believe in herself. This led to her math score jumping 180 points.

Barbara tutored my twin girls over the summer to prepare them for the SAT. They had tried the test before without personalized tutoring and did not do well. Barbara was great. She traveled out to my home and was very punctual. She was able to engage my girls at each session which was no easy feat as the last thing they wanted to do in the summer was math. I am happy to report that both girls saw a score increase of over 130 points in math. And not only that, they both are earning A's this year in AP stat. I believe that is a direct result of their work with Barbara. I highly recommend her.

Kendra was fantastic. Her entire process was thoughtful and she helped me to achieve my goals. I suffer from test anxiety and she was able to help me build my confidence and develop a great study strategy to excel on my GRE. I would highly recommend her to anyone who would like to increase their GRE/GMAT/SAT test score or needs their work peer reviewed. I also loved that her schedule was flexible and that she was able to meet me at multiple locations.

Mr. Glass tutored my son this year in Algebra 2. My Son was struggling majorly. His grade at the end of the first quarter was extremely low. He began working with Mr. Glass twice a week shortly after the first quarter. This helped tremendously!! My son has a B now and is about to graduate High School. Mr. Glass was very patient and extremely effective in helping him with homework. This helped tremendously with his quiz and tests. Mr.Glass was always on time and if we needed extra support before an exam he was glad to add extra time. I was very satisfied with him as my sons tutor !! He will be working with my younger son soon too!

I have had tutors for my daughter previously. None have taken any approach as Ms Nancy. She has provided my daughter with ways to solve problems that she can do and her confidence in completing problems has been amazing. Even the teacher is amazed with how my daughter goes about solving problems Ms Nancy has done more for my daughter with school than FCPS has done in 3yrs

My son is preparing for a test to enter an apprenticeship program. He needed to brush up on various math problems. She patiently worked on each problem with him giving him helpful tips along the way. She has a very flexible schedule and works in a nice quiet environment.

    Nancy is always punctual and prepared for teaching different lessons. She is a great listener and instructor since she is able to connect with students effectively when teaching various lessons. She uses different methods of teaching which helps students learn since they are responsive to the different techniques implemented. She is great colleague who is always helpful to others and maintains her priority on her students. I think that Nancy is always able to overcome any challenges that students face as she is always helpful and has had previous experience teaching students of all levels. I think that she has great work quality, that she is professional and she is always a pleasure to work with.

    About

    Unlike many other tutoring services, Capital Tutoring understands that real progress is only made once the student and tutor have a personal connection. This allows for open communication between both parties and allows our tutors to identify the root causes behind problems (academic or otherwise) so that we can work with the student and their parents to address these challenges in the present and long term.

    About

    I am an English teacher with five years of experience in teaching in one of the most successful state secondary schools in england. I taught critical thinking, English literature, and English language to all abilities of learners from 6th to 12th grade, and I was rated as an outstanding teacher in official observations, using UK national standards. Before that, I practiced law in the state of Maryland for over 10 years, honing my analytical and writing skills. Upon my return to the states, I began a tutoring service focusing on SAT reading and writing preparations as well as working with students to improve their reading, writing, and analytical skills. I have an open, friendly approach to tutoring and go out of my way to plan interesting sessions that focus on your needs.

    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.
