My son was hesitant to have a tutor but after meeting Guljeet he is comfortable enough to work with him again. I am using Guljeet to assist my son who is a HS Junior in prepping for the ACT/SAT's. I am only giving a four star because today was the first meeting. I strongly feel using a tutor and selecting Guljeet was the right choice. I am excited to have Guljeet continue to tutor my son. Stay tuned.. I feel a rating increase in the near future.

Charlotte took concepts from my statistics course that I was not able to comprehend, practice or master on my own, even with hours upon hours of study on my own. With a word, a drawing or an example, whole units of material would suddenly come clear to me. Work with Charlotte kept me from repeating incorrect thought processes on my own that would have made correct interpretation of data even harder to demonstrate on tests and homework. There were several times throughout the semester where she'd say the thing that helped me "get" it. I could tell it was genuinely satisfying for her as the teacher when that happened. Meanwhile, I was doing "happy dances". With her help, I am quite confident I will be able to complete a PhD program as a bona-fide quantitative-minded social scientist.

Our son Connor had taken the Feb 2018 ACT after attending a 4 week (one day per week) general ACT prep course. He scored a 24 composite on the first attempt. I knew with the proper care and guidance that he was capable of performing at a higher level so I did some online research and found Professor Z of Westside Tutoring & Testing Services based on proximity to our location and search results. I decided to read through some of the sites testimonials and lo and behold there is a photo of Professor Z with his most recent ACT tutoring class including one of the students who is a long time family friend. Interestingly enough her parents and I had several conversations about this amazing person that their daughter was getting ACT testing help from. At the time I never really looked into it as Connor graduates the year after. Anyway, there she was in the photo proudly displayed on WTTS Outstanding students of 2016-17. I immediately texted our friends to hear more about Prof Z and their experience. After hearing all of the great things they had to say coupled with the very positive testimonials on the website, it was a no brainer to schedule a visit with Jack (Prof Z). We had our first visit and discussion with Jack in early April, 2018 as we wanted Connor to take the June ACT and then also the test in July depending on the June results. The visit was at Jacks home in his office - where all the ACT prep magic happens Prof Z was very pleasant and covered the entire process with us. He answered all of our questions and we walked away from the meeting feeling very sure that Connor was in good hands with his ACT prep. Jack took over from there and I have to say that he has found his true niche in life. Jack kept this process very organized considering the numerous students he has and their constantly changing and demanding schedules. The communication and organization requirements alone are a full time job. Jack handled it seamlessly. He always made Connor (and us) feel like he was his top priority and made every effort to schedule Connor around his other activities (2 sports, work, school etc..) while juggling the same for 10-12 other students! Amazing ! OK so onto the good stuff!...Connor tested on the ACT 3 times with results as follows: Test # English Math Reading Science Composite Feb-18 24 24 22 24 24 Jun-18 23 23 26 29 25 Jul-18 32 24 30 27 28 Superscore 32 24 30 29 29 The Feb test was prior to Prof Z instruction. June test prep focused on Reading and Science, knowing we were also taking the July test. We cant say enough praise about Prof Z – we are extremely pleased with our sons results. We are thankful for Jacks hard work and commitment to helping Connor and all the other kids that he supports. Jack executes well and his results are far above expectations. Connor is extremely excited and we are very proud and happy for him. Connor says he may make one last attempt at the ACT to see if he can raise the Math score and possibly go above a 30, but we’ll see. Jack tells Connor he can do it and tells him he is capable of great things! Just one of Jacks great qualities! Encouragement=great results WOW ..Reading and english 8 pts increase each, science 3-5 pts increase. Thank you Jack! - Maya and Jeff Walsh, Avon, Ohio Note: The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree..Jacks Daughter Kayleigh helps her Dad with the business side and is extremely helpful, pleasant and professional, just like her father. What a great team they make and a pleasure to work with!

Dan was a very effective tutor for my son in the last years of high school. Dan also had a personality that was a great fit, which made a big difference. We used Dan for test prep as well as ACT tutoring and saw our son’s score go up significantly. Our experience with Dan was fantastic and I’d highly recommend him to anyone!

I did 2 sessions with Matt while I was home in preparation for my GMAT, which is in 3 weeks. We focused on the quantitative section, which was the weak spot on my first test. Matt’s familiarity with the GMAT (both the Verbal and Math section) was evident in the first few minutes of sitting down with him. Probably even more important, given my time constraint, was Matt’s ability to quickly identify my specific problem areas (integer / geometric properties & time management on data sufficiency problems) and come up with a game plan to improve them. Matt’s teaching style helped solidify key concepts by having me walk him through my thinking on problems and correcting me only when I veered off path. This approach worked for me. After the second session, I took a practice test and my math score improved substantially. I would recommend Matt to anyone who’s serious about boosting their GMAT score.

    My daughter has always struggled in math and science. She has been in school based tutoring programs, and basic math and science classes, her teaches have worked with her, but nothing seemed to help. Her math and science grade's ranged between D's and F's. She started working with Lindi second semester of her sophomore year her fist grading period report she had a C+ in both classes, the teachers started asking her what was going on, she said Ms. Lindi. Lindi would follow what the teacher was teaching in class and put it in terms that was easy to understand, and gave great memory tips. In her junior year she averaged B's and A-, by the end of the school year for the first time she made the merit roll with a B+ in both classes and A- on both final exams. She took her ACT test this past summer and some of her best scores where in math and science. She is now in her senior year and she is now in college prep math and science and doing well, and she continues to work with this wonderful lady. I can not thank Lindi enough, her prices are very affordable, and she will do her best to work with any schedule.

    Natalie is an excellent tutor!! She is fun and engaging, always comes prepared, and definitely knows the ACT inside and out. After tutoring just a few times, my ACT score increased by four points. By incorporating both strategy and content into our tutoring sessions, and by providing me with plenty of prep material, I was able to exceed my goal score. I would definitely reccomend Natalie to anyone in search of a tutor.

    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.

    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 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.

    How long does it take to prepare for the GMAT?

    Pros recommend planning to spend two to six months for GMAT prep. The test itself is only 3.5 hours long, but your score will have a major effect on what schools grant you admission. If you’d like to be considered for one of the top-tier schools, it’s recommended to score at least a 700. Your goals for your MBA can help drive your GMAT prep. GMAT tutors will guide your study plan and help analyze your strengths and weaknesses. GMAT tutors also offer professional guidance and insights on strategic GMAT test-taking. Avail yourself of free GMAT prep software that provides sample test questions for you to practice. The creators of the GMAT recommend creating a structured study plan detailing when you will study each day and what topics you will study during each session. Take into account what style of learning works best for you (solo study, one-on-one tutoring, group tutoring, study groups, prep courses) and proceed accordingly. The test is made up of these four categories, each with an allotted time:

    • Analytical writing assessment: 1 topic, 30 minutes.
    • Integrated reasoning: 12 questions, 30 minutes.
    • Quantitative: 37 questions, 75 minutes.
    • Verbal: 41 questions: 75 minutes.
