Experience with Mr. Lacara starts much before the first class. He gave the name of couple of books that he will be using and asked the children to do a test before his visit. He then sat down with my children and analyzed their performance on the test and was able to guide them accordingly. We are looking forward to more help from him in improving the scores on SAT/ACT. He is a well organized person and brings lot of value to the table. My children are grateful to him.
My son actually became proactive between sessions beginnimg to seek preparation options for his SAT. Something he had not previously done. A refreshing change brought on by his assigned Tutor. Thank you for the help
"A patient, intuitive and smart tutor who really connects with me" Sandeep is an expert. He exceeded my expectations. If you want the best and if you want the best results, go with Sandeep. Sandeep is an excellent tutor. He was extremely thorough and quickly found my weaknesses. he was extremely valuable when he focused on my weak points and we worked together to improve them. He also helped me write, edit and proofread my college applications, essays, resume and cover letter. I had a wonderful experience with Sandeep. I really enjoyed my sessions with him. He is brilliant and he connected with and engaged me and truly made SAT prep fun and positive for me. I was also looking for someone to help me write my personal statement for my college apps and to polish up my cover letter and resume. I was looking for someone with excellent writing skills. Sandeep knows how to how to present my strengths in my essays and applications. I also worked with Sandeep remotely for a while (phone, emails & fax) and that saved a lot of time. Since Sandeep's rate is on the higher side, I did not work with him initially, but after working with him, I know he's totally worth it. Having worked with other tutors in the past, I can say that Sandeep is the tutor and writer you need if you are looking for the best. Don't wait.
Meanie is a suitable SAT Tutor.
My experience with Mrs. Willis at Christian Cottage Prep changed my life for the better. There was alot of work every day in subjects like math and English, which felt cumbersome at the time. However, now I am in highschool and suddenly I'm the kid everyone is trying to copy off of. It's difficult to fail with this program because Mrs. Willis gives you 1 on 1 attention with every lesson. Even if you fail an assignment, she will tutor you on the side until you completely understand the material on it and she'll even let you make it up. I'm not going to pretend that there werent days I finished my homework and didnt see the sun in the sky. But thanks to all that work in Algebra 1, I have a better grasp in math class and I dont have to strain as hard as others do to understand what my Pre Cal teacher is saying. I also have to give Mrs. Willis credit for my PSAT scores, the colleges that saw my PSAT scores and are still blowing up my email, and that my writing skills are above 98% of Juniors nationwide. Thats not my ego talking, thats what the PSAT said. My ego would tell you I'm above 98% of seniors world-wide. Christian Cottage Prep is a prepratory school that left me well prepared for highschool, college, and life. And while Mrs. Willis wasn't my favorite teacher, she was the best teacher I've ever had.
Very knowledgable and nice tutor! My SAT improved a lot!
Michelle is such a caring, and genuinely understanding person and tutor! I went into SAT tutoring scared and now I take the test in November and I'm feeling ten times more confident about it. I can really tell I have improved since the beginning of our sessions and I owe it all to her, she truly is amazing. Over time we really have developed a friendship and I am so excited to see how I do on the test!
Brian helped me prepare for both the SAT and ACT. We talked about how to break down the test so that I was not so overwhelmed. He and the company were very helpful.
AMAZING! Michael is a master at teaching the fundamentals in how to take the ACT or Sat exams. He methodically goes over in a pragmatic way what tools can be used to be successful at taking these exams. He is a delight and very good at what he does. Highly recommend him!
Before finding Brittany, our family had gone through six other tutors and tried a few different agencies. My daughter Maggie had not done well on her SAT and had struggled in math as well. Brittany worked with her over eight weeks to cover each section in depth and really helped her to understand the material. My daughter retook the test and her score improved 370 points! Brittany has so much experience and is so great at working with our daughter to get to the root of the problem. We recommended her to all of our friends with children in high school. If you need help with test prep for your students, she is the tutor for you! Brittany made Maggie feel so comfortable and helped her so much with understanding the material, that we kept her on as a weekly tutor for math and chemistry. She is such a bright and compassionate young girl, we feel so thankful to have her in our lives!
Mrs. Blojay helped my daughter make progress in several of her math classes, especially in Algebra. The customized plans she developed for my daughter accurately identified the learning gaps that had impeded her grasping new concepts. While working on the learning gaps, my daughter was better able to grasp and understand the concepts presented to her. As a result, my daughter kept pace in her math classes and successfully completed them. Equally important, my daughter made acceptable math scores on college entrance exams and gained entry to college-level math classes without having to take non-credit prep math courses. Mrs. Blojay also provided a foundation of problem-solving strategies that assisted my daughter throughout her college years and into her current profession. As a retired educator (math teacher and guidance counselor), I can appreciate the efforts made by Mrs. Blojay in assuring the successful outcome for each student she encounters. Her comprehensive approach to "meeting the student where he/she is" and providing understandable, knowledge-building steps to "where he/she should be" is highly beneficial and satisfying to the student. Students who have received tutoring from Mrs. Blojay met or surpassed the required passing scores on local school and national assessments. As a result of receiving help from Mrs. Blojay, students have thrived, succeeded, and gained self-confidence in learning and using math.
Dylan Nguyen was absouloutely spectacular to engage with during my SAT training process. He is very clear in expressing how to tackle difficult problems but can also aid with easy problems. Dylan covers the whole spectrum and delivers results if you are willing to listen. He is consistent in his training and has the expertise to put you over the top.
I went to David Burk for SAT Math tutoring for my son. He was a junior at the time and needed to improve his SAT score in order to get into UNT. He had around a 1350 when we started with David. We only had about 3 months to get the tutoring in before the big test. I can say after tutoring with David for once weekly, my son made a 1650 on his SAT Score and can now get into UNT, yay! I think the results were AMAZING and would HIGHLY recommend David to anyone needing any type of math tutoring. My son's personality takes a special kind of person in order for tutoring to be successful. And my son really grasped the material from David. That in itself is a huge compliment to David! Thanks again David! Will definitely recommend to anyone in need of math tutoring!!!
Dr. Fikar is extremely knowledgeable of the SAT and Subject tests, quite detailed with his approach and study materials, and patient with his teaching. While my son has yet to take the exam, I feel confident with Dr. Fikar guiding him toward the test date. Yes, he is expensive, but I believe the sessions will be well worth it. Highly recommended.
Ms. Wen is an amazing violin instructor. She has studied violin and piano since 5 years to age and it shows through her knowledge and practice of the arts. My son and daughter love working with her and always look forward to her lessons. I make sure my kids practice at least 30 minutes every day to apply what they learned in their music and build a solid foundation. Wen is very responsive and will be flexible with my schedule if my kids have something come up. Recommend 5/5
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 provide SAT tutoring for $30 an hour. My credentials: 2370 in SAT, 234 in PSAT, 800 in SAT math II, and 780 in SAT chemistry. I was also a valedictorian. I have 5 years of tutoring experience.
We take the stress out of test prep; instead of teaching students how to “hack the test,” we equip them with the fundamental skills of critical thinking, communication, and collaboration to enhance their understanding and problem solving skills in all domains. Students can start our customized program as early as 7th grade and as late as 11th grade (12th graders enroll on a case-by-case basis only). At Vanguard, our mission is to enable the future leaders of the globalized world to meet their full potential. We commit to providing meaningful and encompassing college preparation that regards each student as an individual.
Our tutors are highly educated and experienced in dealing with students of all ages. They will tailor a specific learning strategy to each individual. Our highly qualified tutors work with students to improve and ultimately master skills such as the following: - reading comprehension - spelling - grammar - punctuation - sentence structure - parts of speech - creative writing - literary analysis - research papers - critical writing - SAT/ACT prep - PSAT - STARR - GMAT - GRE - LSAT and more I also offer editing and proofreading.
I have taken four different SAT and ACT test prep classes to master as many different strategies as possible. Now, I tutor in math and English skills to high school students with a focus on applying those skills to the SAT, PSAT, and ACT + writing. I was homeschooled in high school and specialize in helping home-educated and private-schooled students get the grades they need to earn major scholarships. At first, I searched for the best test-taking strategy, a "silver bullet" for the SAT and ACT. After months of study, I realized that there is no single solution. The best strategy depends on your natural talents, the scores you want, and how much time you have to prepare. Together, we can find the best strategy for you! I use a service called frog tutoring to make payment and session booking easy. Learn more about me from my profile there or here on Thumbtack to decide if I would be a good fit for your situation.
