Chuck worked with my raising 5th grader to review the past year and work on upcoming skills. He was great with her. Very patient and made it fun for her. She didn't hate tutoring the way she thought she would. He explained everything on her level and really helped her gain confidence in her math skills. We hope to continue with Chuck during the school year.

My son needed help with math and when I started shopping around I found private tutors to be expensive which was discouraging until I found Planting Seeds Tutoring!!! We worked with Chris to set a clear goal path and we were matched with Hannah as our tutor. Planting Seeds aka Hannah has been a blessing to us. Hannah is incredible!! She has this ability to drag my son out of his teen mode and get him to interact and have fun while tutoring. Some days are harder than others but Hannah doesn't give up! Its only been a few months and my sons math grade has already improved at school. I highly recommend Planting Seeds Tutoring they will work with you to ensure you get the service you need. They are not just selling a product they actually care and want to help you accomplish your goals. Not only are they service friendly but also affordable. Chris has worked with my on every level to ensure nothing would get in the way of my son getting the help he needed. Hannah has been great and flexible with our crazy weekly schedules and is always wiling to accommodate us. I'm excited to see what Planting Seeds will help my son achieve. Thank you Chris & Hannah!!!

Vikas responded to my request for a tutor almost immediately, which was great, especially because I was doing a really heavy statistics class that went really really fast as a summer course! I really appreciated how much he was able to help me, and asked me to send any handouts and lectures so he could review the material and make sure he aligned with the course material before we would meet. His rates for tutoring were very reasonable compared with other tutors. He told me he knew that he could charge more but didn't because he wanted to help students, not just make money off them.

The company replied in a timely manner and arranged for SAT tutors to connect with my student right away. We were given an opportunity to select which type of tutors my daughter would listen to...authoritative or patient. We also liked the fact that there were many tutors to choose from.

I’ve taken my SATs a couple of times and although I am not a bad student, I just felt that I could have done better, I knew it inside, but just could not find where it was. I got the Getting Into The Ivys tutoring program and worked with a Chelsea tutor. What I really like about my tutor is that she’s a qualified teacher and is professional and knows how to actually teach concepts properly. I really did not want to take any chances. Going to university is very important to me and my family. Susan my tutor developed a special study plan just for me, which helped me focus on my key weaknesses, without feeling de-motivated, in-fact I was so enthused by her, I actually looked forward to all my sessions. She is a brilliant tutor and I am so very grateful. I was able to increase my composite core by 100. I am very pleased.

Jesse is an excellent math tutor. He is very kind and easy to understand. He made a big difference in my understanding of calculus, and helped me grasp concepts I could not get in class. I look forward to working with Jesse more in the future.

I love the fact the tutoring hours never expire. We bought a package of hours at a cheaper rate and use the initial hours in the spring, some of the summer and some in the fall. Arbor Tutors is amazing!

I went to Michal for GRE tutoring. He was fantastic! It had been a while since I'd been in an academic setting and he never made me feel like I was lacking the knowledge I knew I was. He was patient and helped me address problems from multiple perspectives so that I really understood them. He helped me set goals and work towards them. He went the extra mile for all the students and prepared well for each class. Michal's teaching style was engaging and had a conversational tone that was easy to follow. I wish I had found him back in high school!

    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.
