We hired Chuck to help our 17yr old son, Mark, prepare for his SAT and ACT. Chuck was always on time meeting my son which I love because I love punctuality. My son really liked Chuck and didn't mind meeting with him at all on his own time. Chuck was understanding to my son work schedule. Also, Chuck was able to give Mark ways of understanding the questions better so Mark can get through the questions thoroughly but faster and with confidence. His practice tests clearly showed the improvements that Chuck was helping him with.

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!!!

    I took Michal’s 8-wk GRE class at ATX prep this fall and I had a very positive experience. As a working professional preparing for graduate school, preparing for the math portion of GRE test was an intimidating endeavor. Michal is extremely encouraging and supportive of his students while maintaining a laid-back teaching style. He’s also generous with his time and genuinely wants to see his students succeed. An exceptionally nice guy and great teacher! The only thing I would I didn’t like about the class (and this may just be based on personal learning-preference) was that 2 or 3 of the 8-wk class classes were taught by another teacher named Chelsea. I thought the class she taught on the analytical essay was very helpful, but her math-teaching approach didn't work for me. When I left Michal’s classes, I left feeling confident about the material that was covered. I left Chelsea’s math feeling flustered and with unanswered questions. However, I was able to get those questions resolved before the end of the course. My overall experience was excellent and I would recommend this course to anyone who needs support preparing for the GRE.

    Love the SAT with Christian was exactly what we needed for our fist kid going through the process. Christian would fit each time he met with our daughter to her specific needs. He would look at her recent scores on testing efforts and would work with her till her scores in everything stated to climb. He was patient and thorough and never made our daughter feel anything but optimistic about her chances of getting her scores to the level she needed them to be to gain admittance to the college of her choice. Now she is a happy freshman at the University of Texas at Austin and we will definitely use Love the SAT for our next two up and coming college applicants.

      Mr. Blair was the absolute best with assisting my daughter in passing the math exit TAKs test. Before Mr. Blair, my daughter had failed 2x with the assistance of the extra tutoring offered from the school district. But thanks to Mr. Blairs patience and expertise, my daughter has finally received Her diploma. I highly recommend Mr. Blair, he was absolutely awesome.

      I used Megan as a personal tutor 2 years ago in my English class. She was amazing, I brought my grade up to an A from a C thanks to her. So I then decided to use her last year to get a professional resume done. Thanks to her very professional help, I managed to score a great job over three others. She even helped me prep for the interview.

      About

      My name is Merry Zide and I have been studying as a graduate student in the History Department at UT-Austin. I provide private tutoring in history, English, writing, and test prep for students of all ages. Learning how to read critically and write clearly tends to improve academic performance across the board. Students with strong reading and writing skills can absorb and communicate information effectively, even when they are not entirely familiar with the material. I have learned that mastering these basic skills is as important for college and graduate students as for elementary and high school students. When I tutor in particular subjects like History or English, I try to help students improve on basic study skills, and I emphasize relationships and critical thinking over memorization and rote learning.

      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.

      How long does it take to prepare for the GMAT?

      Pros recommend planning to spend two to six months for GMAT prep. The test itself is only 3.5 hours long, but your score will have a major effect on what schools grant you admission. If you’d like to be considered for one of the top-tier schools, it’s recommended to score at least a 700. Your goals for your MBA can help drive your GMAT prep. GMAT tutors will guide your study plan and help analyze your strengths and weaknesses. GMAT tutors also offer professional guidance and insights on strategic GMAT test-taking. Avail yourself of free GMAT prep software that provides sample test questions for you to practice. The creators of the GMAT recommend creating a structured study plan detailing when you will study each day and what topics you will study during each session. Take into account what style of learning works best for you (solo study, one-on-one tutoring, group tutoring, study groups, prep courses) and proceed accordingly. The test is made up of these four categories, each with an allotted time:

      • Analytical writing assessment: 1 topic, 30 minutes.
      • Integrated reasoning: 12 questions, 30 minutes.
      • Quantitative: 37 questions, 75 minutes.
      • Verbal: 41 questions: 75 minutes.
