Pat has helped us with ACT prep, college essay writing assistance, providing us with tutors for organizational skills, math and physics. We have been tremendously happy with ALL the services that ColPrep tutoring provides. Our son has gotten into 4 out of 5 schools that he applied to (5th school hasn't sent out acceptance info yet) and we owe it all to Pat. You can't go wrong!

In only three weeks Alex helped me improve my GMAT score 60 points. For some reason, GMAT verbal was not coming to me naturally even after buying and using every online test prep company out there. Alex helped me go from a scaled score of 30 in previous official GMAT tests to 40 (90th percentile) on test day. He did a great job at re-framing how to think about and attack CR and RC questions- it definitely paid off!

My daughter needed some help with SAT prep, and Ms. Blaine was wonderful. She was able to help her identify what she was not understanding and provided effective strategies to conserve time while taking the test.

Anna worked with my son to prep him for the new SAT this past spring. She worked with us to meet in a mutually convenient spot, and was always flexible with scheduling. Our son needed the most help with the essay, and Anna spent hours prepping him on how to brainstorm, organize, and write the essay on the SAT in such a short amount of time. She also helped him with the reading and writing sections by identifying his strengths and weaknesses, and helping him figure out the best strategy to beat the test. We will definitely be using Anna again to tutor in English next school year!

About

What makes me different? I tutor professionally full time rather than as a hobby or side job. I absolutely LOVE my job, and it shows in the quality of my work. When I take on a student I am invested in giving them everything I can to help them succeed. That often means I stay a few minutes extra or go out of my way to squeeze someone in my schedule for the day. I am patient and give constructive as well as positive feedback. I'm young and can better relate to my students. I am very flexible and do my best to accommodate whenever possible. Over the years I have developed unique strategies for explaining steps in ways that students can remember. I focus less on the proper vocabulary, if necessary, and use common language that the student will understand. I feel it is the teacher's job to explain the why of math and teach vocabulary, but my job as a tutor is to make sure the students can do the work.

About

Open communication, technical know-how, and a true passion for education are the fundamental qualities on which I have grown my tutoring business. Over the past five years, I have helped more than 100 students gain admission to their dream colleges and have averaged a score increase of approximately 260 points for the SAT and 6.5 points for the ACT. I have personally played a role in the lives of students who have earned admission into such institutions as Stanford, Duke, UVA, Cal Tech, Georgia Tech, UNC, and UPenn. Over the years, I have developed a very efficient method for identifying and addressing student needs using a curriculum that is custom fit for each student. This curriculum includes a carefully proportioned combination of test taking strategies and academic development.

About

I tutor K through 12 in all subjects at all levels. I also tutor in test prep -- SAT, ACT, PSAT, SSAT, PLAN, and ISEE. All our tutors have a master's degree or better and 3 years (min) of teaching experience. There are no contracts; you pay as you go!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

How long does it take to prepare for the GMAT?

Pros recommend planning to spend two to six months for GMAT prep. The test itself is only 3.5 hours long, but your score will have a major effect on what schools grant you admission. If you’d like to be considered for one of the top-tier schools, it’s recommended to score at least a 700. Your goals for your MBA can help drive your GMAT prep. GMAT tutors will guide your study plan and help analyze your strengths and weaknesses. GMAT tutors also offer professional guidance and insights on strategic GMAT test-taking. Avail yourself of free GMAT prep software that provides sample test questions for you to practice. The creators of the GMAT recommend creating a structured study plan detailing when you will study each day and what topics you will study during each session. Take into account what style of learning works best for you (solo study, one-on-one tutoring, group tutoring, study groups, prep courses) and proceed accordingly. The test is made up of these four categories, each with an allotted time:

  • Analytical writing assessment: 1 topic, 30 minutes.
  • Integrated reasoning: 12 questions, 30 minutes.
  • Quantitative: 37 questions, 75 minutes.
  • Verbal: 41 questions: 75 minutes.
