Michael has been tutoring my son in Algebra and daughter for SAT testing. His patience and ability to teach them not just how to break down math problems but why is amazing. My daughter in particular is not happy just knowing how to do something she wants to understand the logic behind it. He does an excellent job helping her with this. Moving on to English part of SAT test next and will update.

I met John using thumbtack and I received his Resume and spoke to him on the phone. My daughter was in serious need of help in math and it was behind a couple years with some things! She never received a higher grade then a 70 something on any of her math test. We met with John during the summer, once a week, she returned to school and received the highest grade in the class On her first test, I couldn't be more pleased with John! My daughter adores John and he's extremely easy for her to talk to and answers any of her questions through email!! He's very reliable and prompt and I can guarantee your child will succeed tremendously with his help!! Thanks John

Lisa is one of the best writing tutors that I have ever had. She is smart, kind, and believes in every single one of her students. I first started working with Lisa to prep for the ACT. She always believed in me and encouraged me to keep working towards my goals. After getting through the ACT, Lisa helped me with my college application and supplemental essays. She helped me to get my vision into solidified and ideas. She has a hyper focus on making sure that her students voice is heard. Her respect and confidence in me is what made me believe in myself and my work.

For the past year, I have worked with Ms. Lisa Kay on multiple subjects: studying for the SAT/ACT, and working on my college application essays. With her variety of tricks and strategies, I have developed skills to do well on these tests. Although I struggled with grasping certain subjects in the beginning, Lisa has been very patient and helped me understand why I got questions wrong versus how many questions I do. Sometimes, when I was frustrated with the practice test I took, she would always reply to my emails and calm me down, keeping me motivated and thinking more positively. Over the course of this year, she has helped build up my self esteem/confidence for test taking, and now I feel much more comfortable with the SAT/ACT. She is very rational and realistic: she always speaks the truth and will make sure that her students improve one way or another. Although her tutoring sessions are only once a week for about an hour each, she can be easily contacted via Skype, email, text, phone call, etc. I know for sure that whenever I have questions, she will always be there to help, and without her, I have no idea where I would be right now in the college process.

I asked Brandon on relatively short notice to help tutor my daughter for her math SAT's. He was responsive, as he answered quickly. He seemed able to do an assessment of her needs, and address his teaching accordingly. We called with relatively little time before the test, but he helped her use some helpful strategies. And her SAT's improved as well. If she were to take the SAT's again (I think we are done with that part, thankfully), I would definitely ask him to work with her again, and I would definitely recommend him.

I signed up with Cambridge Tutoring last winter when I was preparing for my GMATs. Working with Karthic saved me a ton of time as he was able to help me break down my studying into more organized sections. I stopped spending hours reading test prep books and instead spent a fraction of that time working through problem sets with him that addressed my individual needs as a student. I'd highly recommend Cambridge Tutoring to anyone that wants to accelerate/improve their preparation for the GMAT.

Linda has tutored two of my sons over the last five years. My older son was able to improve his SAT scores as well as perfect his college application essay. He got into his first college choice. My younger son had problems expressing himself in writing and started working with Linda in 8th grade. Later he studied with Linda for ACT and got into his first college choice. Overall I was impressed with Linda's professionalism, great energy and great rapport with kids. They loved studying with her. In addition I could always rely on Linda being up to date on latest changes in SAT/ACT tests, which was tremendously helpful last year. We all feel very fortunate to have Linda as our ' Language Coach'.

Alicia is humble, professional, punctual, flexible and speaks with our son on his level, to make geometry understandable. She cares about his success and has already stayed late with him twice, and doesn't rush to leave when the hour is up. If he needs more time, she stays and she doesn't make mention of it. The first thing she did when we met, was like a gap assessment, to see what he understood, how he likes to learn (visual) and where he was with respect to terminology. In three weeks, Alicia has helped our son turn around his failing average grade of a 59 to a passing grade of 74 for the quarter, not an easy feat. His HW assignments since AA(After Alicia) have been 100, 95, 100 and test scores have been 77, 80 and a 92 - Wish we found her in August!!! Just yesterday, I got a text from Ryan during school that he just got his grade back on his geometry test and he couldn't wait to tell me he got the third highest grade on the test in the class, with that 92!! Feels like he is going to make it out of the woods and we are keeping Alicia on for the rest of this year and beyond I am sure! Its been hard work, hw assignments from her, making and STUDYING flash cards and practice using the formulas/proofs, but NOTHING feels better than giving your child the tools/help they need to succeed on their own - what a confidence builder!!! MATH is a LANGUAGE and she speaks with perfect grammar and fluency. She won't tell you outright, but if you ask during your interview process, you will find a pedigree for mathematics and a love for education. She attended Harvard Graduate School and her daughters were both accepted to MIT. If you need a reference for Alicia, I would be happy to provide one for her!!

I've been out of college for nearly ten years, out of basic math/algebra for...lets just say...longer than that. With my recent decision to go back to school to become an RN, I had to take a math placement test. This worried me because I am notoriously bad at math, and had to take several remedial courses my first time around in college. This time, I was determined to avoid that, I did not want to spend extra time or money on math classes that I wouldn't enjoy! I went from knowing nothing to knowing everything I would need to test into the math requirement for my nursing program, and I couldn't have done it without Erika! (Seriously, every damn question on that test I thought to myself, THANK GOD FOR ERIKA). I had three valuable tutoring sessions with her. She is calm, easy-going, and fun to talk to (someone who I have fun talking about math with, what?!). At the same time she is concise, to the point, and encourages you to solve problems until she can tell that you are really "getting it." If I need further tutoring in math or science during my program, I have every intention of reaching out to Erika, and I would recommend her to anyone!

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.

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.
