My first day of math class I sat at my computer and literally cried because I had no idea what I was doing. I was hesitant to pay for a tutor because as a college student money is already tight but failing my class is not an option I've meet with him once and he is awesome and believe me when I say this because the only time I give reviews is to warn people not to waste their time or money however Alfonso is worth every penny

Teresa was an excellent tutor. I am a senior about to take another SAT because I wanted a higher score. She narrowed down my strengths and weaknesses and focused on my subjects I needed help with. Overall, it was a great experience and I recommend her to anybody looking to strengthen their intellectual/academic knowledge.

Honestly have nothing but positive things to say about Mr.Burke! Can safely say that the reason why I scored higher on my SAT test was because in the 2/3weeks he did tutor me he made it his mission to see me succeed and meet my goals! He went out of his way to meet with me to see me succeed, he tutored me on weekdays for hours and even drove to a place that was closer to my house just so I could get the help that I needed more than once! Mr.Burke isn't the type of person to help you just because it's his job. Mr. Burke is the person that will help you because he believes in you as a person and knows you are capable of achieving many things in life. Mr.Burke has made it his mission to help anyone who needs help in school, to see them succeed and he will go the extra mile just to see you succeed and surpass your set goals

I have never used a tutor before, so I was apprehensive to use one recommended to me by my fellow student for my ACT. Having sat them before I really needed help to ensure I could raise my score. So I engaged Chelsea International. I am flipped over by the level of support I have received from them as a student and now realize what my friend was talking about, no wonder he was always doing so well. My ACT score came in above average at a 28 and I am really pleased. Thank you!

I have been an educator for over 18 years now, and I truly understand the value of an education and the meaning of lifelong learners. I offer tutorials for the following subjects: * Spanish I, II, III, IV, AP and College Level and CLEP * SAT, ACT, GRE and GED * Algebra I and II, Geometry, and Precalculus * Reading and Writing I am able to help students improve or utilize their skills to study, and I help them with time management. The SAT is just one factor in the admissions' decision. Schools also consider your high school GPA, academic transcript, letters of recommendation, interviews and personal essays. The weight placed on SAT scores varies from school to school. Most colleges and universities will accept the ACT in lieu of the SAT. For more specific information on the importance of SAT scores at the schools you're interested in, contact the admissions offices directly. What specifically is the SAT? There are 3 SAT sections: math, critical reading, and writing. The writing section includes an essay, which, unlike the ACT, is not optional. From start to finish, the test will take you 3 hours and 45 minutes. Should I take the SAT or the ACT? Is one harder? Is one better, more prestigious, or more useful? If only it were that simple. More information about the SAT vs. the ACT will depend on your school of choice. How is the SAT scored? Each section is scored on a 200 to 800-point scale, making the perfect score 2400. How do I know if my score is good enough to get me into my dream school? Good question. Check out the admissions department at the university you wish to attend by either searching their website or by setting up an appointment. How do I register? SAT registration deadlines fall approximately 5 weeks before each test date. Ask your guidance counselors for test dates, and applications are available in every high schools. How can I prepare? Practice all three sections, and take each practice test seriously. Get a one-on-one tutoring or help to secure a better or higher score. The GED is a high school equivalency examination. You need a total of 2250 points and a basic score of 400 on each test in order to pass. The scores are derived from a special scoring system that isn't based on percentage or rank. If you fail any of the individual tests, you'll have to take that test over again. If necessary, you can take each test up to three times in the span of one year. The following comprise GED's five-part structure: * The GED Writing Skills Test - This measures your ability to use standard English in writing in two ways. Multiple-choice questions test your knowledge in sentence structure, usage, punctuation, capitalization and your ability to organize sentences.

Two hours are allotted for this section of the GED. * The GED Social Studies Test - This is 80 minutes in length and tests knowledge of US geography, history, political science, behavioral science and economics.

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.
