Tom is tutoring my son in math. My son said, after both sessions they've had so far, that he learned more in the one hour than he did in weeks in class. He used to say "I'm just bad at math" and now he feels like math is something he can tackle. Tom is professional and a pleasure to work with!

I hired Jennifer to tutor my little sister, Ray, for her SATs online. In just 6 weeks, her score went up 90 points thanks to some hard work and Jennifer's methodology. Unfortunately for us, Jennifer wasn't the first tutor we worked with. We hired 2 other tutors before her. Both were more expensive (one was literally 10x more expensive) and neither were anywhere near as effective. Ray immediately clicked with Jennifer. Her style is encouraging and direct, and my sister appreciated the candor. I appreciated the way that Jennifer kept Ray motivated and gave her strategies and short-cuts she could use during the test to raise her score. The other thing I like about Jennifer is how easy she is to work with. She is exceptionally clear and responsive. She's flexible in the ways that are important to me, and fair. If you're at all hesitant about online tutoring for SATs, I'd encourage you to seriously consider it over live SAT tutoring. We loved not having to drive anywhere for tutoring. You just don't have the flexibility to squeeze a tutoring session in between tennis practice and dinner when you have to factor in even a short commute. Plus, my sister felt more comfortable studying for SATs in the same place she studies for everything else -- the desk in her bedroom. It was easier for her to get in the zone. Even if we brought a tutor to our home, she would have had to study in a more foreign environment - our dining room table, or some other joint family space. Jennifer is an amazing teacher and a warm soul, and for the quality and care she puts into her sessions, she could easily charge twice the price. This is a no-brainer, folks. I'd recommend Jennifer to any friend looking for a tutor without hesitation.

I am so glad I found Tag Tutoring! My daughter did not feel confident in math and currently is taking Geometry (10th Grade) and it was getting her down. She is an Honor Roll student but math is not her strongest subject. Tag Tutoring is patient and kind. As well as very responsive to schedule. After just the first session, my daughter had a huge smile on her face. She was so grateful for the help she received in the short amount of time. Tag Tutoring explained the math a lot better where my daughtr feels like she is starting to understand more. I can’t wait to continue her sessions and see her exceed and improve her grade.

Stefanie is a wonderful tutor and teacher. She has been tutoring my son in Math for 2 years now as he has moved from 8th Grade to 9th Grade at Benson High School. He now has a solid "B" in Geometry, when before he was struggling in all aspects of Math. She communicates well with us and his teachers and gives us good feedback on what he should be working on. You will be very happy if you use her for your son or daughter.

My son takes the SAT in just a short few weeks, and Chad has been very accommodating in helping and tailoring his services to our needs. The consultation with him went well; he is professional, friendly and both my son and I felt fairly comfortable with him. I am confident that he is giving us his best and that my son will benefit greatly.

Beth was my daughter Abby’s English tutor 3 years ago when we just moved to US. English is the 2nd language and Abby passed ESL level 5 within 1.5 years. This is the 2nd time Beth tutoring Abby, but for SAT prep. specifically . Beth is always well prepared and communicates with me the learning target, provides effective feedback to keep me updated on Abby’s progress. Abby is also pleasant to learn from Beth and becomes more confident. It is very important that your kid accept his/her tutor, that makes learning become more interesting and productive. Beth is definitely a great tutor to work with, highly recommended!

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.
