Robert has been very helpful in preparing me for my exam in Calculus I. My first test went well and I got an A! You have to put in the work but he will teach the concepts in an easy-to-remember way!

Jessica is tutoring my kids (grades 7, 9 & 10) and she is amazing. The kids have each said how good she is and how they like the way she explains concepts. If they are having difficulty with a concept, Jessica will email color coded step by step instructions for them to follow to help them when doing homework or to refer to later when studying for a test. Jessica is an outstanding tutor - I am so thankful we found her!

Daughter needed last minute Pre-Calc tutoring to understand concepts appearing on her next test. Steven was willing to meet that very day. He was very respectful to respect my daughters privacy and recommended they meet at the public library. The only downside was the library closed early and cut their session time short before my daughter felt comfortable with all the concepts. I recommend him and my daughter says she will use him again.

I hired Johnita in the 11th hour, just two days before my first test. I struggle with math. She is most helpful in getting me to "see it" and then apply it. Johnita is definitely going to be a MAJOR asset in getting me through this class. Highly recommend!

Our daughter had pretty much given up on getting through this course because her math teacher's explantions did not help but Charly is able to explain math in such a way that the principles make sense.

I engaged with Dale on short notice, to run a leadership development session with a young team of assistant managers who were visiting Salt Lake City from the Philippines. He was extremely responsive and put together a great 2-hour workshop with less than 2 business days of prep. His activities and content were appropriate for my group, and his approach was very empathetic and professional.

I worked with Arafat last year. He was a wonderful mentor to my son both as an ACT prep tutor and as a college application counselor. He was punctual in reporting my son's progress back to me which I appreciate. I recommend him highly.

Michael Owens helped me with a lot of things. He initially helped me with preparing to take the GED test. I lived in Detroit, Michigan and he took about 3 months helping me. He gave me the confidence that I needed to succeed. I was impressed with how thorough Mr. Owens was with me. He was always punctual and expected the same out of me. He insisted that I did not allow myself to feel inadequate as most inner-city youth do. Mr. Owens went above and beyond tutoring me to also help me prepare for college (thanks to passing the GED test) by preparing me to take the ACT test, helping me fill out university applications and proofreading my essays. I was accepted into a university where I now have a 3.9 GPA. I fully endorse his tutoring services. He is attentive, knowledgeable, and helpful. He will make sure that you succeed. and he will push you to see your potential. He is approachable and a great listener. I find no faults with his teaching style as he encourages and expects you to ask questions.

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.
