I had a great experience working with Michael in preparation for my series 7 exam. He was extremely knowledgeable on all aspects of the exam. Michael was generous with his time and by the time I took my exam I was very confident. The one on one time and tutoring was invaluable. Having the immediate feedback from a tutor was exactly what I needed in my preparation. I passed my exam on the first sitting. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone preparing to take the series 7 exam. Wes Palmer

Whitney provided me with a much needed SAT prep class. My mother and I were worried about my taking the test, I believing a high score was the only affordable way into college and my mother concerned that I was halfway through tenth grade and had not studied anything for it. Knowing little about the SAT, she had purchased a book which I had only glanced at. Having taken Whitney's class, I am very grateful I did not use that book, for I would have walked into the SAT, thinking I was prepared but knowing little more than if I had not studied at all. Whitney has surveyed all the SAT books to find those most accurate to the real test and beneficial to the student, which he used to teach the class. His knowledge is invaluable both to taking the SAT and when applied to future studies in high school and college. He helped me understand the test, gave strategies for mastering each section, and pinpointed my weaknesses to strengthen my skills. His vocabulary cards, for example, were so effective that I memorized over five hundred words and still remember most of them today. Now if I want to learn a new word, I make the same vocabulary cards as I did while preparing for the SAT. And his three types of math cards, which I used in college algebra last semester, prevented me from making the same mistakes twice. Even after completing the class he provided me with information on Wofford College, where he attended and one of the colleges I was applying to, and wrote two recommendations for me during my college application process. Neither Whitney's methods nor his friendship can be found in a book or an online program. I cannot say enough for Whitney and have recommended him to my own friends. Though his rate may seem expensive, it is worth every cent, and I would not hesitate to pay it again if I needed his help. It is an honor to write this recommendation for Whitney, and I recommend Whitney's services with a six-star rating above anyone else or any other program in his field.

      I contacted Billy about tutoring my son in Science and Math. He responded the same day and started the following week. He has been very patient as my son does have some issues focusing on his work. Billy has kept his lessons very entertaining but on task while teaching, I believe that's why my son is doing so much better. He is actually excited about doing his school work and looks forward to Billy coming in to work with him. Can't wait to see his first report card this year.

      Unique in its approach, The Learning Tree offers programs that are specifically tailored to each child. Each engagement starts with an initial consultation at which students needs are assessed and matched with a tutor who will then work closely with parents, the student and their teachers to identify areas for improvement in the student’s learning styles. The Tutor then develops a program with lessons uniquely suited to the student. Our goal is to make the process of learning yield better results and therefore be more satisfying.

      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.
