I was on the verge of failing my Chemistry class when I contacted Arbor Tutors for tutoring. The tutor was very patient in explaining to me all its concepts so I could have a better understanding of it. My test scores increased significantly since then.

    Anna - has been a God send for our daughter. She is very knowledgeable and skilled in this field. She sees each student as an individual and works to adapt the type of ACT/Tutoring plan the student needs to fit his/her schedule, academic standing and flexibility needed. The only thing I wish - I wish we would have started working with her sooner. She has a passion for her students and for learning!

    Very detailed in her explanations, she was well versed in the reading and English sections helping me raise my score in each. She teaches a class for act tutoring at my school (Central Magnet), but I didn't have the time to take a semester class. This is a great alternative that I would recommend for anyone looking to bump up their score.

    Julie is fantastic- nurturing, kind, professional and a great writing tutor. Her rates are lower than average, so the value was terrific. She is always on time or a bit early. My son loved her. We used her multiple times a week as our primary writing teacher for my 6th grader who was homeschooled at the time. I recommended her to a friend who needed a homeschool tutor due to some emotional difficulty with school and she was so grateful. Julie was the first tutor that her daughter responded to positively. Julie is kind and gentle, but firm so things get done. She will bend over backward to help a student or their parents. She has a true love of both learning and of her students. She is a wonderful person to have in your home. Peaceful, kind, personable. You will be fortunate if you are able to fit into her schedule and she into yours!!

    Sam was incredibly helpful. Our daughter needed some extra time with algebra work outside the classroom. And while we were a little skeptical finding someone not through the school, glad that we decided to go for it.

    All sessions are one-one-one. I can conduct sessions over the internet with VOIP and synchronized white boarding or in person. We begin with a meeting of the parent(s) and the student to review expectations they have of me and my expectations of the student. We review the specific goals they wish to accomplish. This has helped all involved feel more comfortable with the tutoring sessions. I love to see students achieve! Parents say they can see their children become more confident and therefore not dread certain school subjects. Often times, a student just needs clarification or additional explanations about certain fundamentals associated with a subject and their understanding skyrockets.

    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.
