Ralph and I started sessions a few weeks ago and I couldn't be happier with him. I have really noticed a confidence boost in my math skills and I understand the materiel. I told Ralph at first that my predicament involved not being able to grasp and fully understand the concepts I was being assigned. Ralph gave me the tools to understand these concepts and helped me break down problems. Ralph really helps me understand Math at its core and actually teaches me the basics in understanding the most complicated of problems. Ralph also responded to all of my messages very quickly and has been easy to communicate with. Id recommend Ralph to anybody looking for a tutor who adapts to your skill level and needs.

Charles has been tutoring "English Language Learners" twice a week for the past five months. He is always on time, very reliable, and a welcome low-key presence for the students. The little ones run up to hug him, the older ones are always anxious to work with him. He is very comfortable working with different ages and on different subjects.

Dr. Turner is an excellent teacher and tutor. He always finds a way to teach the information is the way the student would understand it the best. He always writes out many examples and works through problems step-by-step. He also just received a teaching award from Wright State.

Kendra did a fantastic job preparing our son, he scored much higher than we anticipated.


A civil engineering background helps me view Maths in different perspectives as GMAT textbooks. I think I can change how students view GMAT quantitative questions. I want to help students with poor Maths background and change their thoughts about Maths.

We are successful because we match tutors based on the individual who needs tutoring. This ensures that personality, communication styles, and tutor expertise are in-line with your needs. Additionally, we believe that academic success isn't just about understanding the subject but having the right studying and learning skills to succeed long-term. We pride ourselves in being academic coaches. There is nothing better than meeting with a student and learning their individual story to understand how tutoring can benefit them. We work with students of all ages and abilities and there is always a moment when it all clicks together. That is the most satisfying part.

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.
