Kate is truly the most amazing tutor you will find. I searched for weeks for someone to help me with a graduate school prep math class, and although there were many options, the people I talked with seemed difficult to relate to and even though they seemed intelligent, I didn't know if I could learn well from their style of teaching. Then...I found Kate. She not only knew all of the material that I had to learn, but was able to explain things in a way that I understood. She is extremely patient and actually made the material as interesting as possible. I would absolutely recommend her for GMAT prep, any college level or grad school math. Her background says it all but when you work with her you see that she is much more-it is her personality and ability to break concepts down that really make the difference. It was also very easy to schedule and communicate with her.

My 15 year old son is being tutored for Algebra 2. He went very unwillingly to the first session. He is eager for the next. Mr. Abron engaged him and gave him insight into why things were not working out for him. INSTANT CONFIDENCE! It also helped that he was nice, patient, smiling, and extremely knowledgeable about the content. He provided resources that the school was not providing and gave us a game plan that will carry him through the school week. Besides all of that, he strikes me as a wonderful, caring person to whom my son will make a stronger connection. Nurturing and fatherly conversation. Very, very satisfied!

We were so pleased with the individual tutoring that Brad gave our son, Tyler. He was so accommodating to Tyler’s busy sports and work schedule, was always on time, and professional. Brad’s positive and patient way quickly helped to establish a good rapport. Brad took the time in the beginning to assess Tyler’s strengths and weaknesses, so that they could make the most of their tutoring time. He knew exactly what to focus on to help Tyler meet his goal. Brad’s expertise regarding the SAT was exceptional. He shared with Tyler the techniques and tips that would make him successful. Tyler went from a 1320 on the PSAT to a 1460 on the SAT due to Brad’s outstanding guidance! It was money well spent! Thanks again! Cathy and Lee S.

Christine Kalcic was instrumental to my success at MSU as a premed student. She proved to be an asset to my success during my first semester, and I continued to work with her throughout the rest of my coursework. She is proficient in multiple subjects, and is excellent at breaking down material and getting you caught back up when behind. Christine was invaluable for exam prep and taught the material to truly understand it, not just to pass. Working with her taught me time management and how to approach very complex material and a tough course load. I truly feel very lucky and fortunate to have worked with her. I have recommended her to multiple students of various age, and she has done an excellent job with everyone. There is no way I could have taken on the course load I did without Christine, she is brilliant and just a really awesome and kind person!

About

At Schollegiate, we are confident that there’s a school for everyone — and we work to help students find that school. We help them make sense of their aspirations, dreams, and academic and extracurricular interests, and we help them find the schools that make for good matches. And when the match — or in most cases, matches — has been made, we make sure students craft applications that speak to their “fit” on that specific campus; that illustrate why they merit strong consideration.

About

Our school is different from all the other tutoring schools because it creates Individual Learning Plans for each student. Students do not have to waste time traveling. All of the materials are uploaded into the virtual classroom. Students do not need books or notebooks. They have a dashboard for their assignments. Students receive and ID and password, which they can use to log into their accounts and to the assignments. Once the students have enrolled into one of our programs they receive a troubleshooting lesson. Our IT team is always prepared to assist with all the questions and challenges. Students can contact us anytime. It can reach students all the time, all over the world, there are no boundaries. Anyone can join, at any time. We are advocates of GO GREEN, and we try to promote this idea in our school. The fact that all the books are uploaded into the program, and that the students do not need to have hard copies, is one step closer to promoting the GO GREEN idea. Once a week we have workshops about GO Green to familiarize our students with this idea. We are a multicultural learning environment and we bring the students into one classroom, day or night.

About

Hello! My name is James Mandilk, and I am a recent graduate from a local high school, Walled Lake Central, and a current student at Yale University. I was fortunate to earn a perfect score on the ACT as a junior (36 Composite + 12 Writing), and now I'm providing other students with both the knowledge and the strategies they need to succeed on the ACT. Ivy Insiders is a different kind of test prep company: - Ivy Insiders students increase their ACT score by 4.4 points on average - that's double the results of most test prep companies. - Our instructors score in the 99th percentile, rather than in the 90th. Moreover, since most applicants are Ivy League undergraduates who have impressive ACT scores already and those with the best mentoring abilities can be selected from a pool of many qualified individuals. - Our curriculum is revolutionary: we believe that the ACT is not a test of "intelligence" or "aptitude," but of concrete skills that can be improved through practice. Since the ACT is a standardized exams, strategies that succeeded before will still succeed today. - Ivy Insiders is also a socially responsible company, offering scholarships to those in need to ensure that test prep is available for everyone. I am offering free events, private tutoring and classroom courses this summer. Full course information is available on my website, and you may receive $100 off if you use code MI4TT. Thank you for taking the initiative to invest in your future! James Mandilk, Yale College

About

We help parents and students understand and master the new SAT, focusing on what's different and the way to practice for the test based on how much time the student has to prepare. Each student takes a complete practice test from which is created a PPA (personal plan of action). We provide tips for getting teachers involved and referrals for one-on-one tutoring, use games to make skill mastery fun and challenging and place students in online study groups to motivate and encourage each learner. At the end of the session, a post test is given, along with an updated study plan for continued review of the weak skills up until the test date. Options for learning include the following: * Online * In a Classroom Setting * At Your Home * A combination of two or more of the above, for maximum SAT score gains

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.
