I enlisted the help of Arbor Tutors to help me with test prep for grad school. Oh man! I am SUPER happy I did that. The tutoring manager walked me through the whole process and set me up with TWO tutors. They also said I could change tutors at any time, but I didn't need to. I was accepted into all of my top choices (Columbia, Penn, Cornell and Duke). I used the application services also (they reviewed my essays).

Math Allergy + World’s Best Tutor - Time = 760 score + Top 5 MBA acceptance! Dan is the reason I’m heading to my dream school without a doubt. I can’t imagine scoring over 750 without his help. I wasted an entire year spinning my wheels with 3 different test prep companies and feeling like a lost cause before finding Dan- and not to mention consistently scoring under 600 despite embarrassing amounts of effort. Less than 6 months of working with Dan boosted my raw quant score by a full 10 points and it kept on climbing. Dan is patient, encouraging and a complete genius. Most importantly, Dan gave me both the confidence and battle tested approaches to hit a score that I would have laughed off a few months earlier. It still boggles my mind that a 200 point increase is even possible, but Dan made it happen. I don't normally write online reviews, but I can't stop sharing the secret weapon to making your dream school acceptances roll in aka working with Dan and never looking back. You’re welcome :)

I have only the highest praise for Jim DelGenio, in every possible way. We have had a longtime tutor working with my son, but test prep is not her specialty. We were referred to Jim through an acquaintance, and I’m so grateful that we had him in our corner. Simply put, Jim is a fabulous tutor. He very quickly assessed Conor’s working and learning style, and adapted his sessions accordingly. He spent quite some time chatting with us at the beginning of our time together, to understand our goals and work toward them. Our experience with Jim felt the total opposite of a “package”, but rather a customized strategy based on Conor’s strengths/weaknesses and our goals. Jim has a broad range of knowledge of not only the testing process, but also navigating the waters of college applications. He was a wealth of information that informed much of how we proceeded with the various schools Conor was considering. Jim gave “homework” that was apropos to the subject matter they were covering, but was mindful about weeks where Conor’s schoolwork was overwhelming – we all appreciated that! And personally, Jim was a pleasure to work with. Always on time. Always responsive to e-mails and phone calls. And an all around nice guy too! But the best “testimony” I could give is from Conor himself. I asked him if he attributed his great success in his SAT scores to his work with Jim. His reply? “Absolutely.”

I met Maura a while ago when I was looking for a teacher to help me improve my conversation skills in English. During our meetings she stimulated the conversation by asking lots of questions about myself, about my country, making me not only to use English but gaining the necessary confidence needed to speak in another language that is not my native one. Another valuable thing that I learned from Maura was a good insight about American culture, people and places in NJ/NY. She also recommended me great books for improving my conversation skills, with useful expressions and topics for practice. Last but not the least, Maura shared from her experience in Toefl preparation exam which is one of my future objectives. I recommend Maura for anyone who is interested in improving English language skills.

I could not say enough good things about Dr. Fikar. He is the reason, for the first time in my entire life, I did well on a standardized test. I had used other large test prep companies to prep for the GMAT and none of them could help me beat a 650 until. Dr. Fikar's knowledge of the test and study materials are unparalleled. I could not highly recommend someone more. Thank you for everything Dr. Fikar!

Ray is a great tutor and a great person. He was extremely patient with my 9 year old son when we asked him to help with some last minute ISEE prep. My son actually looked forward to his sessions. Ray helped keep him on track when he started to wander. Ray is responsive, punctual, & cares about his students. I would hire him again in a minute.

Prior to hiring Jon as a tutor, I was struggling with LSAT prep despite taking a TestMasters course and 7sage. My score was not improving regardless of the hours I put in. That's when Jon came along and everything changed. After just one tutoring session, my sore went up 5 points! It felt absolutely incredible. Jon helped me tremendously with my weak points and gave great advise and tricks on how to tackle certain types of problems. I wish I had found out about Odyssey Test Prep sooner, wouldn't have wasted my time/money on TestMasters. If you are still debating between TestMasters and Odyssey Test Prep, go with Jon at Odyssey - you will not regret it!! Not only is he extremely knowledgable, he is always available for his students. Also, his Logic Games course is amazing. I have improved tremendously in the LG section and though I hate to admit this, I actually enjoy doing Logic Games now. Hiring Jon was the best decision I've made!

I think any adult who pays to study a test just goes to show how important the test is to the person who may be feeling uncertain about him/herself or perhaps some aspects of the test. Hence, I believe the greatest value of a tutor is his ability to motivate his students to the next level of learning and to feel confident in tackling the test. And that is exactly what I found in Fred. I was feeling apprehensive after attempting some questions on the mock GRE test. But now, with the support of Fred, I feel very confident and that confidence motivated me to want to do my very best. So from the bottom of my heart.. Thank you Fred for sharing my journey to a self actualisation need.

I look forward to our sessions weekly, and I am greatly excited about the future that getting my target score on this test will open up. Thank you Tom!

We all know when it comes to the SAT’s there is guaranteed to be a lot of stress. As a sixteen year old high school student going through the SAT process, I can vouch for this. My anxiety began months ago. I admired people who had started their SAT prep a year before, while envying students who were just naturally good test takers, scoring 2000 and up; however, when you don’t fit into either of those categories you start wondering what now? At that point an SAT tutor seemed like a good idea. Enter Danny Ahn. The first time I met Danny, I was unsure what to expect. He understood my confusion and began to structure a plan of action. He soon established the level I was at in English and Math, and then focused in. After a few sessions I began to understand the kind of approach required of me. I have worked with Danny Ahn weekly since around late October or early November, 2013 and our work is ongoing. It is now Feb. 17, 2014. I have found Danny to be a good communicator and listener. He is dedicated, nurturing, focused, and hardworking, going beyond his allotted time with me to help me achieve my goals. He genuinely cares about my mental well being as well as my academic standing. He is readily available on the phone and via text, and has proven to be accommodating with regards to scheduling. I believe that Danny is pushing me in the right direction and I am feeling increasingly more confident with regards to the dreaded upcoming SAT’s. Danny has an excellent understanding of the SAT requirements and I feel that with his continued guidance I can achieve my goals.

LSAT Tutoring with John

Before I first started working with John, everything I knew about the LSAT had come from taking one practice test several months earlier. I had done absolutely no preparation for this practice test, and I think I had scored somewhere around the mid-150s. John quickly familiarized me with basics of the test, and soon I was scoring in the low to mid 160s-range. My best section quickly became the Logic Games, thanks to John’s efficient teaching of it. However, what stumped me over and over again was dealing with uncertainty in the Logical Reasoning and Reading Comprehension sections, with picking the best answer out of an entire set of mediocre answers and with questions that didn’t seem to fit into neat patterns that the majority of LSAT questions and answers fell into.   Luckily, I had found a fantastic tutor to help me. John was always extremely patient and meticulous. He made sure to give me thorough explanations for questions that I had difficulty fully comprehending to make sure I had a complete understanding of why the right answer was correct. He did not give up even when I would say, “Uh…ok” to his initial explanation when he heard the hesitation in my voice. John gave me weekly assignments specifically tailored to my progress. He worked very hard to mold my brain to be the best LSAT-conquering brain that it could be. He even requested that I email him my Word document of LSAT notes every time I updated it. At the same time, he was not at all a grim and harsh tutor, and freely gave me encouragement whenever I expressed my fears that I was just not smart enough to score as high as I wanted to on the LSAT. John was always flexible and understanding about my schedule–I first studied for the LSATs while juggling a summer internship and conducting interviews for a senior thesis, then again during my winter break and then during the first few weeks of my senior spring semester. John never demanded that I work around his schedule. He even travelled to China during the summer, but made sure to make time for our lessons that took place effectively over video chat.     Alas, I improved but did not score as well as I wanted to the first time I took the LSAT. The second time around, along with my usual weekly assignments and lessons, John instructed me to start making flashcards of all my wrong answers from practice exams and to use the Leitner flash card review technique to study my cards. (This technique involves: (i) separating flash cards into 4 boxes, with each card getting promoted to the next box when the correct answer is given or moving the card back to Box 1 when an incorrect answer is given, and (ii) using a schedule of which boxes should be studied on which day of the week.) During lessons, John and I would fill out new flash cards. John made sure that I not only wrote down why the right answer was right and my wrong answer was wrong, but also precisely what to look out for with these questions and answers, so that I would not miss these traits or clues the next time I encountered them in other questions. I am almost certain this technique was one of the main reasons I scored a 171 the second time I took the LSAT. Before I used the Leitner system, I did not review my old answers nearly as much as I should have, certainly not every day. With the Leitner system, I was forced to constantly keep reviewing concepts that I had missed previously so that I would not do so again, which helped me stay on top of my personal challenges. Toward the last couple of weeks before the second time that I would take the LSAT, I consistently scored 170 or more on practice exams.   It was also helpful that John and I got along very well on a personal level. He was considerate and polite but also witty and funny–I was very lucky that our senses of humor meshed so well. ‎It was a huge bonus that even our tastes in sci-fi and fantasy were highly compatible as well. I owe my 171 score to John. He is a patient, precise, professional, perceptive, and entertaining tutor who knows the LSAT inside and out and wants to make sure that all his students do as well. Anyone hoping to defeat the LSATs would be lucky to have him as their tutor.

I hired Jay to tutor my son for 10 -12th grade math and science courses and SAT/ACT prep during the summers. He always excelled at essays and vocabulary, but had difficulty processing algebra. From his first tutoring session, my son's confidence improved and his math & science grades climbed. He worked hard and enjoyed the lessons. His best scores in the SAT & ACT were in math and he was accepted into his first choice university. It really did take a village of good people to help my son realize his potential. Jay is one of the best mentors you could have on your side.

I found Amanda as a tutor on an online platform about a year ago and I needed help with my writing skills in school. I need essay writing help as well as general assignment support. Through working with Amanda my grade went up and I have become a much stronger reader and writer. (Her motto: "Every good writer is a voracious reader" is so true) I actually learned to love reading more after working with this tutor. Her rate was cheap enough too for my mom to be able afford lessons every week. I will be working with this tutor on my SAT prep this whole semester too and looking forward to it. Highly recommend.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.
