Over the past 4 years, Sarah Wright has tutored 2 of my children and myself in various areas of math ranging from math SAT prep to advanced graduate level Statistics and several areas in-between! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Sarah's teaching abilities and her level of knowledge in all areas of math. She is truly gifted in tutoring under even the most challenging of circumstances. She is incredible at deciphering a students learning style and knowing how to approach teaching them to achieve the best result. Sarah's dedication, patience and knowledge are truly amazing. The results from sarahs tutoring are excellent and I highly recommend her.

I have nothing but praises for Club Z. After completing the Request Info. online I had our Regional Director, Marian Cohen contact me within 8 hours. She readily answered all of my questions and we scheduled an at home consultation. This consultation consisted of her asking very specific questions about our child's learning style, concerns, class material and assignments, along with meeting our child and getting a feel for his personality in order to match a tutor. We agreed to proceed in committing to the program and signing a document allowing Club Z to meet with our child's teacher and act as a liaison to gather any helpful information to assist in our child's success. Meetings were set up and held with the teacher's and very valuable info. was gained. One of the teacher's was so impressed with the professionalism and the extent of involvement of Club Z that they asked me about my impressions so they could use it for their own children. Our tutor was selected and is a perfect match for our child. The Director even dropped off the materials she had gathered from the teachers to the tutor's house over the weekend to be reviewed prior to our first session. The tutor has arrived early each time and sits in our driveway until 5 minutes before our appt. to be sure each minute is utilized for direct instruction. The approach is not passive. He and Marian proactively gather info on upcoming assignments and curriculum to be certain they keep our child at the correct pace. I hear the tutor using "clear instructions, multiple tips, checking for understanding", while encouraging and teaching. Our son has already improved his grades. When I asked him how he feels about this service he said, "I'm getting it and he's a great tutor". I love how we (our child, teacher's, tutor and Marion) are working as a team to help one child. I have received follow up phone calls to inquire how things are going and to confirm all is well. Marian has established a wonderful working relationship with the teacher's that I finally feel as if I can relax and know we are in very capable hands.

My son is in 10th grade and a bright boy. However, with ACT tests coming up, we wanted him to reach his highest potential. Through the Chelsea International Getting Into The Ivys test prep program, my son has excelled so much so that he is up to go to Stanford. After doing 6 weeks of private tuition with Dr. Michelle, her patience, understanding and encouragement, has driven my son’s greatest results. He scored 34 on his first time taking the ACT and he had no prior ACT testing experience. I am so impressed and so thankful for the professional experience of Chelsea International.

    Melissa was an awesome tutor. I had taken an SAT prep course but wasn't scoring high on practice tests- esp in math. She really understands the math and is very patient. I feel so much better and my practice scores are really good. I think I 'll do well on the real test.

      In addition to being professional, courteous, and knowledgeable, Mr. O'Brien was very patient with my son, who is not strong in math, especially calculus. With Mr. O'Brien's help, my son actually passed his finals -- and with a very good grade.

      Working with High Marks Test Prep is certainly the best choice one can make while studying for the SAT or PSAT. This course will provide you with precisely what you need to get, well, high marks. No superfluous or confusing information is thrown your way, either. Your questions and points of confusion will be treated carefully and individually, which I found meaningful. The intelligence of the leaders of the program coupled with the amicability of them makes for an excellent classroom environment and experience. I had no regrets leaving High Marks Test Prep.

        About

        For college admissions essays, I help students write clear and compelling essays. If you don't even know where to start, I ask questions that help you find the arc of your story and support you in developing the narrative with strong details. If you have an idea, I help you think through a strategy. For ACT tutoring, I give students the tools they need to learn the test, not the subject matter, so they can be confident on test day.

        About

        I am currently a college student who is studying English, Spanish and political science. I think that having been a high school student recently, I have a very good idea of what to expect from standardized testing and can prepare students using my own experience to guide me. Additionally, I am a very strong writer and enjoy editing papers, because everyone should be able to vocalize their thoughts and work in a way that is understandable and is going to be well received. By fixing the grammar or format of a piece of writing, you can transform it so that although the content stays the same, the message is clearer and the response is more gratifying.

        About

        We teach academic skills to grades K to 12. We tutor the following: * Reading * Writing * Math * Study Skills * Spelling * Vocabulary * Phonics We offer subject tutoring for exam prep -- SAT/PSAT, ACT and Advanced Placement (AP).

        Q & A

        Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

        What is ACT test prep?

        The ACT is a college entrance exam taken by students (typically in their junior year of high school) to determine admission eligibility and merit-based scholarship eligibility. The test may be taken as many times as desired and is not limited to high school juniors. Originally the acronym stood for American College Testing, but now ACT is the stand-alone name. ACT prep is a way for students to strategically prepare for test-taking. ACT prep helps students improve scores, practice taking the test, learn test-taking strategies, and improve material comprehension. Students can get help with ACT prep tutors in one-on-one sessions, via group tutoring lessons, in online self-study programs, or online with a tutor in video calls. The ACT test covers:

        • English
        • Science understanding and reasoning
        • Math
        • Reading
        • Writing essay (optional)

        How do you prepare for the ACT?

        The ACT is a universally accepted college readiness exam. There are multiple ways to prepare for the exam. One-on-one ACT prep tutoring is one of the most effective ways for students to ready themselves for the test. A tutor who specializes in ACT prep will coach the student on the type of material they can expect while also working specifically with topics that are more challenging for that particular student. Group tutoring sessions are a more cost-effective way to reap the benefits of an ACT prep instructor; a suggestion is to gather a group of four friends or classmates to share the cost. Professional tutors often recommend that test prep begin approximately three months prior to the exam. Cramming — unfortunately — doesn’t provide the same score results as consistent study, test-related homework, and practice exams do. Weekly two-hour learning sessions are what many pro tutors suggest for their college exam prep students. For top test-taking performance, tutors usually provide work throughout the week and the weekly session is used to cement knowledge and address weak areas. Math is a hard topic for most students, so plan accordingly.

        What is on the ACT?

        The ACT is made up of a variety of multi-choice questions under four main subject areas: English, mathematics, reading, and science. There is also the option for a written essay. For ACT prep, it’s important to study each subject. Each subject area is broken down into multiple parts to provide a comprehensive snapshot of the student’s understanding of the material. ACT prep provides an opportunity to prepare for the subject matter in each area.

        ACT English:

        • Production of writing: 29 percent-32 percent of English score. These questions focus on topic development and organization, unity, and cohesion.
        • Knowledge of language: 13 percent-19 percent of English score. This section examines the student’s use of vocabulary and effective language use.
        • Conventions of standard English: 51 percent-56 percent of English score. These questions address sentence structure and formation, punctuation and grammar, and recognition of grammatical errors and how to improve.

         

        ACT Math:

        • Preparing for higher math: 57 percent-60 percent of mathematics score. These questions cover number and quantity, algebra, functions, geometry, and statistics and probability.
        • Integrating essential skills: 40 percent-43 percent of mathematics score. These questions address comprehension of math learned prior to and after 8th grade.
        • Modeling: less than 25 percent of mathematics score. These questions examine how students use modeling skills in all math topics.

         

        ACT Reading:

        • Key ideas and details: 55 percent-60 percent of reading score. The questions test students’ ability to summarize information, draw conclusions, and grasp central themes.
        • Craft and structure: 25-30 percent of reading score. These questions examine students’ ability to understand an author’s word choice and meaning and analyze various points of view.
        • Integration of knowledge and ideas: 13-18 percent of reading score. These questions examine students’ ability to understand facts and opinions and make connections between texts that share similar themes.

         

        ACT Science:

        • Interpretation of data: 45–55 percent of science score. Students will need to analyze and manipulate scientific data presented in various formats.
        • Scientific investigation: 20–30 percent of science score. These questions will test students’ understanding of experimental tools, procedures and design.
        • Evaluation of models, inferences, and experimental results: 25–35 percent of science score.

         

        ACT Writing:

        • This is a 40-minute written essay that examines students’ competence with ideas and analysis, development and support, organization, and language use and conventions.

        What are the subjects on the ACT?

        English, mathematics, reading, and science are the four main subjects on the ACT. Writing is an optional subject students can select when they register to take the test. The subjects were determined as a way to test the sum total of knowledge and comprehension that the students have accumulated up until the start of their senior year of high school. ACT prep breaks down each subject of the ACT test so the student understands what type of questions they will encounter and to provide them with strategies for answering questions. Doing well on the ACT is not only about academic smarts. Learning the nuances of taking a standardized test can greatly improve a student’s test scores. On the ACT, each of the four subjects is broken into subsections to test the students’ understanding in that area. The official ACT website provides free online ACT prep tools for each section, including English, Math, Reading, Science, and Writing.

        How many questions are on the ACT test?

        There are 215 total questions on the ACT test. The ACT covers four academic areas and students have 175 minutes total to complete the test. For students who opt to take the ACT writing test, there will be a written essay (in addition to the standard ACT topics), which students will have 40 minutes to complete. For ACT prep, it’s wise to study the material that will be covered within each academic category and take practice tests to become comfortable with the format.

        The English test has 75 questions that must be completed within 45 minutes. The math test has 60 questions with a 60-minute time limit. The reading test has 40 questions and 35 minutes total. The science test has 40 questions that must be completed in 35 minutes. Tutors may recommend taking the test more than once as part of the ACT prep training, with the goal of improving your overall score each time. Official ACT recommendations urge students to answer each question on test day, even if it is a guess, as there is no penalty for guessing.
