Bob tutored me in the math portion of the SAT, and he was so patient with me and taught me so much. After about 8 lessons, I retook the SAT, and did significantly better. I would deffinately recommend him.
Leah was very responsive and professional in her work with my daughter. It was a pleasure working with her. My daughter went into her SAT with more confidence and calm.
Michelle is an exceptional Tutor who has helped my son with Math on various occasions. Her approach is very personable, as she takes relatively difficult topic such as Math, and makes it fun and exciting for my son. As a result, I have seen a drastic improvement in his comprehension of the subject. Additionally, she has even taken the initiative to help him with other subjects in his class when there is time left over from her tutoring, and the Math homework is already complete. I strongly recommend Michelle to anyone who is in the market searching for a Tutor with the solid credentials.
During my tutoring experience with Will Frantz he costumized each session to my needs and really improved my weaknesses! Mr. Frantz is an extremely nice man and always made me feel comfortable talking about what I do and do not need help with. He knew how to specialize in each problem area and helped me become an expert in those areas. He gave me tricks and tools for each section of the SAT, which dramatically improved my score. Even after my SAT tutoring, Mr. Frantz went above and beyond to see how I did and even wrote recommendation letters for me.
After this SAT course, I improved my scores way more than I had even deemed possible. It truly was a pleasure to have taken the class and made such an improvement to my understanding of the test as well as how to take it properly. With personal instruction, much more guidance can be given than from any practice book you may purchase from home. I cannot thank Peter Schmidt and the Prepare program enough for the boost in score as a direct result of the vigorous, yet extremely beneficial course.
I had a great experience with Mr. Ochis-O’Neil. He was very helpful and informative with my SAT prep, and he helped me to build the confidence and test taking strategies that enabled me to earn my goal score.
I participated in SAT tutoring and college prep with TEACH. It helped me in so many ways. I got into each & every college I wanted & am now attending my dream school, penn state.
Heather is very personable and puts kids at ease quickly. She knows the tests, the strategies for both reading and math and she is a great PSAT/SAT prep tutor.
Steven Greene tutors our son, who is a junior in high school. His teaching style, especially in chemistry and physics, helped our son grasp the information with ease. We also have Steven going over SAT strategies to prepare for the upcoming test. From a parent's point of view, Steven is very professional, can relate to our son, always available by phone or email, if needed, and after each session, updates us with what material he went over and the progress our son is making.
Over the past 4 years, Sarah Wright has tutored 2 of my children and myself in various areas of math ranging from math SAT prep to advanced graduate level Statistics and several areas in-between! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Sarah's teaching abilities and her level of knowledge in all areas of math. She is truly gifted in tutoring under even the most challenging of circumstances. She is incredible at deciphering a students learning style and knowing how to approach teaching them to achieve the best result. Sarah's dedication, patience and knowledge are truly amazing. The results from sarahs tutoring are excellent and I highly recommend her.
Neil Grobman is a great tutor. Neil tutored me in the reading and writing portions of the SAT. We had lessons each week. He introducesd and elaborated on a different topic at each lesson. At the end, Neil assigns word parts and an essay for homework which helped to furthur expand the concepts. Neil made sure that he answers all of my questions and concerns. If he did not know the answer, Neil finds any sources that provides the answer. Neil provides an unique way to boost vocabulary, attack the essay, and complete the passage based questions. I have learned a lot from Neil and I recommend him to anyone in need of a responsible and dedicated tutor.
Bryan is the best tutor I've ever used for my kids (for SSAT and SAT testing). He is a teacher who really understands the learning process. His ability to teach, target problem areas and explain concepts is outstanding. There was a significant improvement in the pre/post results for both my kids. Beyond standardized testing Bryan's subject knowledge (of many areas) is exceptional. He has patience and a manner that really makes kids want to learn. I attribute my kids' success to this trait, in that there was never any stress involved. I highly recommend his tutoring services.
Laura is very friendly and welcoming. She is easy to understand and easy to learn from. I learned so much about SAT and ACT strategies, which helped my time management on the test. I got into my number one school, and 9 out of 11 schools that I applied to. I definitely wouldn't have been able to do that without Laura!
Great tutor! I hired him for SAT preparation, and I could not have made a better choice. My score improved greatly! He was very helpful for Math, in particular.
Mark was awesome to work with. He broke down the steps for me and made sure I had a good understanding of my statistics problems.

I have over 30 years of experience teaching 6th through 12th grade mathematics. I am a trained math and SAT tutor from Rowan University through the CHAMPS program. I am a patient, caring and motivating teacher who loves math!
Let's face it: the college admissions process is stressful enough, but the SAT doesn't have to be. How to reduce the stress? Know what to expect and feel confident that you are ready for whatever could come your way. My philosophy as a tutor is to give students the tools and guidance they need to get their best possible scores. I do this by focusing not only on test strategies, but also on the content of the exam. I work closely with students and parents to develop a study plan that meets the student's needs and talents. There is no one-size-fits-all here. Over the past eight years, I have tutored over one thousand students on all sections of the SAT. My students are from all walks of life and academic backgrounds, from inner city public schools to the most elite private school. I am successful as a tutor, because I believe that every student can learn to master the exam. As part of my philosophy of approaching every student as an individual, I have developed an expertise in working with students with learning differences. Over the past few years, I have had the opportunity to tutor many students who received accommodations on the exam due to ADHD, Asperger's, dyslexia, and other diagnoses. I work closely with these students and their parents to develop an approach to the exam that compliments their learning styles and makes the best use of their specific accommodation. Do you have questions? Do you want to know more about me and my teaching style? Please get in touch. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you.
Hi! My name is Dave. If you are looking for a math, chemistry, or SAT tutor, I would be happy to help you! Math and chemistry have always been my strongest subjects in school. I was a member of competitive math teams growing up. I received high marks in all my math and chemistry courses at Ursinus College, and I worked in several chemistry labs around the world. I received a perfect 800 SAT score on the math section, so math and chemistry come second nature to me. I also received a 700 on the verbal section and have experience tutoring it, so I can help you with that too. As for my experience, I have tutored for over five years. I tutored math and chemistry all throughout college. I worked at Huntington Learning Center for a year, where I tutored the SAT math section. I also traveled to South Korea for six months to tutor the SAT math and writing sections and the SAT II chemistry and history tests. After that, I have been freelancing, and that eventually brought me to Thumbtack. All of my students drastically improved their scores and grades, and I'd be happy to help you improve yours. Each student learns in his or her own unique way. The tutor must be able to adapt to this and to the student's personality. I am, in general, an empathetic and patient person, so I can quickly adapt and figure out fun ways to help you learn quickly and effectively. My availability is flexible. I'm free most weekday evenings and anytime on weekends. I'd be happy to meet at a place of your choice. Please let me know if I can be of help! Take care and best of luck with your studies. Dave
