    Caroline Warren is the best math tutor I have ever had! She is patient and understanding. She is always willing to go the extra mile to make sure that I comprehend the work. I love that she study me,also the way she lights up when she sees that I comprehend what she is teaching me. What my weakness were as well as my strengths. For the days that she didn't tutor me she gave me very helpful video's to watch. It is really hard to find a tutor that is genuine and cares about you learning more thing anything else. I would recommend Caroline to any and everyone that is ready to learn.

        My experience with Laura tutoring my son has been great ! She's a very understanding and patient teacher, who always comes with an organized lesson plan. I have to say that the most important part about my son tutoring with Laura is that my son likes her, and feels comfortable with her as his tutor.

        Carole has been one of the most encouraging, insightful, knowledgeable tutors we have ever experienced working with. She has not only helped our daughter with the actual work, but has also taught her to learn how to stay organized, been a source of encouragement to our daughter and taught her the study skills my daughter needs before heading off to college next year. I would recommend her and have recommended her with great eagerness! She gets an A+ in our book!

        Dr. Manning was great to work with. His approach is based on working problems and going over what you do right and wrong, and it is really effective. He spends a lot of time preparing for sessions, so he always already knows the best way to solve a problem. He helped me a lot.

        I recently graduated from Duke with a BS in Neuroscience, and I am available for one-on-one or small group tutoring lessons aimed at the K-12 age group. I am particularly well-equipped to tutor in SAT and standardized tests, biology, and English, and have prior experience doing so. I also have coursework experience in German, math, literature, history, anthropology, psychology, and statistics. This varied coursework gives me a great foundation for helping with homework, studying for tests and quizzes, and preparing for standardized tests.

        About

        I have been tutoring for many years even before I went to graduate school including working for an SAT/GRE/MCAT/DAT test service. My mastery of the material and passion for it is not just what I bring to the table. I have a genuine interest in students and have developed my own methods of finding the real problems students face. Eight years of phone crisis line work has given me a lot of counseling and facilitative communication skills that help me get out what is really going on. Most importantly, I know when to shut up and not interfere with a students work and investigation and let them make their mistakes in a stress free environment so we can both learn from them.

        Forty years ago, I began teaching engineering students physics. I developed a reputation for conveying technical information in layman terms using examples and drawings which further enhanced my student's comprehension. My students learn the importance of recording solutions in their own voice, when I am not there, they can understand and apply the steps to solve similar problems.

        About

        We are a local company offering private and personalized instruction from Ivy League graduates. Our tutors work one-on-one with students to formulate specific academic plans for long-lasting and professional success. As opposed to larger commercial companies like Kaplan and Princeton Review, we believe that each student is unique, that her strengths and weaknesses are different, and that individualized attention to those areas is the best method for achieving any future academic plans for college and post-graduate study. In our globalized society, the goal for high school students is no longer to simply go to college but achieving an academic scholarship that makes this choice affordable. For undergrads, the goal should be higher education but at the right graduate school and at the right price. Contact us today to learn how we can help make your educational and professional ambitions a reality.

        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.
