I needed some help with algebra in 8th grade. My parents had heard of Jeremy from a friend, so we got in touch and he started tutoring me. Jeremy is an excellent tutor. He helped me with my Algebra and all of my other subjects. He has a vast array of knowledge in all subjects ranging from Algebra to History. On top of that, Jeremy taught me what was important to focus on. He helped me prepare for the SAT and showed me how important it was. I went on to do excellent on it. This is what separates him from other tutors. He informs you of things that will be important in the future even when it has nothing to do with what you are learning in class. All the while, Jeremy is friendly and down to earth. It felt like a friend or family member was tutoring me. I truly couldn't give him high enough praise.

Kamil is an excellent tutor. We found Kamil through this website in our efforts to find a tutor for the SAT preparation. Our focus was on the Math portion of SAT. Kamil is a real professional and has the ability to adapt his teaching to the student. What I mean specifically is that while reviewing concepts and problems he was very flexible in providing multiple explanations to solving problems. I really appreciated the manner in which he was able to connect with my 17 year-old daughter and in my conversations with her she felt confident in his instruction and the value he added. She has found that his tutoring for the SAT has been helpful in her schoolwork as well. I would strongly recommend you reach out to Kamil if you or your child are looking for tutoring that will provide significant help in achieving higher scores. I would absolutely use Kamil again if I were in the market for a tutor for my child.

I've studied Precalculus and Calculus with Sasha. She has a deep understanding of the subjects and clearly, and patiently, articulates the steps to solving problems. She challenges me to solve the problem on my own, only dropping hints, or showing the solution, when I'm truly stuck. She does not waste time and is always encouraging me to try more problems. Administratively, she is responsible and flexible vis-a-vis the time and place of tutoring sessions. She is a valuable asset and a bargain.

Club Z really came through for my daughter when she needed help. They understood my daughters needs and quickly found her a tutor and worked with her. Her grades improved and she was happy with what they were able to do for her. The price was extremely reasonable and I would have paid more if I knew how great Jennie was with her. Thanks! Highly, highly recommend!

My uncle tutored me for the longest time and has helped me get better with math. He is very knowledgable and can explain a problem in multiple ways. Before teaching a new topic as review he'll go over something you do know that will help out with the new material. Also, on one on one tutoring he makes sure you get the problems by making sure you can do a problem by yourself by changing up the example problem. The best quality he has is patience. I sometimes could ask alot of questions or need extra time and he would be fine with it.

Michael is a nice tutor, he helped me a lot. As an international student, literature is so hard for me. He is so patient to correct my pronunciation. And also, he always use some easy word to express a complex sentence meaning to me. I improved a lot because of his help.

Ms. G is a wonderful math tutor. My daughter in 7th grade was struggling with pre-algebra. Ms. G tutored her throughout the year and she went for failing to a B+. My daughter enjoyed the sessions and felt well prepared after they met. She also helped to boost confidence which has helped in all of her classes. Truly a delight!

I had her as a tutor, and she really helped me understand the math I was having trouble with. I saw her every week for 3 months. She explained what was really happening, which helped because I used to forget the order of steps a lot.

      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.
