The service of, Mandarin Lessons, that I received from Mr. Zhang were outstanding! I rate him with 100 golden stars because of the quality of Yanming tutoring. He always seems to know when to adapt his teachings so I can process the information in a way that I can comprehend. I find that helpful because he will go back to basic teachings for me to understanding before he moves on to challenging materials. He patiently listen to my pronunciation and quickly identify my weaknesses in pronouncing second tones. When I speak incorrectly, he do not sign or make me feel incompetent, but encourage me to try again. This assures me that he want his students to exceed standard spoken Mandarin and press on to prefect speaking Mandarin. I am pleased with his honesty because he is teaching me accurate oral communication as well as accurate written communication. In conclusion, if you are looking for a tutor that is passionate for teaching, understands what needs to be taught, with outstanding work ethics, with willingness to reflect (why's and how's), organized, motivator, adaptable, considerate, and a good listener........ Then Mr. Zhang is right for you. I am a beginner Mandarin learner as of January 2017. In six month or to a year, I will review again in the Mandarin written language to show and prove I have an outstanding teacher. I thank Jehovah God that I met you online! Thank you, Yanming! It is a honor to have as my professor in Mandarin!

Souradip is a tutor, par excellence! We're grateful to Thumbtack for bringing him into our lives. He's responsive to our children's needs. He's great at explaining and uses various techniques to make sure that they understand the material. Souradip's infinitely patient and never makes them feel less than or embarrassed to ask questions. The children look forward to working with him (now that's a litmus test for a tutor who's doing something right!). They would rather work with him than see a movie! We sought tutoring because our children were struggling and in a matter of a couple of months they're "A" students. That's a testimonial to the caliber of tutor that he is!

Sarah was an amazing tutor for the quantitative portion of the GMAT prep courses I took. Her ability to clearly explain her problem solving process and help me see where I was tripping up was incredibly helpful. In the end my score improved by 160 points!

Mrs. Nanez was my ACT tutor my junior year. Initially my science and English scores were lower than what I wanted. Mrs. Nanez helped me bring both of those scores up into the thirties. Mrs. Nanez tailors her strategies based on the person. I would highly recommend her for any student that is looking to improve their score!

    Alex is a terrific tutor. At our first meeting, he took the time to see what our son Connor was working on in his Math class and gained an understanding of where he was struggling. They meet every week and Alex helps Connor with concepts he didn't fully grasp in school. Connor is more confident when he works on his homework and when he takes quizzes and tests. On his last test, he received a perfect score. We would highly recommend Alex to any parent who has a child struggling in Math. Stuart and Karen

        I'm not, and never have been, good at math, and having a sympathetic tutor is really important to me. Mark was patient and noticed when I didn't understand but didn't want to say anything. He was ready to explain things in several different ways until it clicked for me, and he never made me feel stupid! He clearly has an excellent grasp of the material (for me it was GRE math), and explained things conceptually, instead of just showing me steps or "tricks". I got the GRE math score I needed!

          Mr. Holland was contacted to help improve my daughter’s ACT score. He easily and quickly established rapport with her and provided resources to supplement the book. My daughter enjoyed meeting with him and did not mind doing the “homework”. Scheduling was flexible and Mr. Holland accommodated her many high school activities. Her ACT score did improve resulting in additional scholarship money. I highly recommend Mr. Holland’s tutorial services.

          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.
