As the tag lines says, "Bill Knows Math"! We hired him for SAT math prep and we purchased the book he recommended, which he knows backwards and forwards. He leads very energetic tutoring sessions revealing his passion for helping kids learn the content. My daughter was more engaged than I've normally seen her with math. His help provided her the confidence she needed for the SAT.

You can't ask for a better tutor than the one we got. We ended up doing in-home tutoring and the tutor was very kind and courteous and knowledgeable.

My daughter has taken several tutoring sessions in Pre-Calc with Nema. He has been very helpful and explains the concepts really well making it easier for her to understand the topic at hand. We'll continue with more sessions with Nema.

My son has only met with Paul once, but immediately we were impressed with his experience and friendly style. My son left his tutoring session, I think, feeling hopeful of the outcomes.

Michael's program is great. All the other people just wanted to tutor or sit down and do homework with him but what my son needs is to learn how to study on his own, which Michael's service teaches him how to do. Thanks!

Prior to tutoring, two things were holding my daughter back on the SAT- the math section and her confidence. Alex was the perfect tutor to improve both of those areas. He provided clear teaching in math that honed in on the areas where she needed the most help. He was consistently positive and encouraging, helping her believe in herself. This led to her math score jumping 180 points.

Edward is currently tutoring my 7th grader in Algebra 1. My son told me that Edward not only teaches the mechanics but also gives him the explanation as to why. Edward uses an iPad during sessions and emails the notes after each session. Edward is also very nice and personable!

    Eric tutored my daughter in Calculus II for about 8 weeks. He was always courteous/respectful, responsive, and timely. He was also flexible, willing to change the tutoring dates/times to accommodate our fluctuating schedules. My daughter’s Calculus II grade went from a D to B.

      I needed lots of help with SAT math as I hadn't learned several of the concepts involved and Anna was incredibly patient and helpful. She talked me through various ways to approach each problem and made sure I actually understood the ideas involved with problems and their solutions. Anna was really reassuring when I got frustrated and she made me a lot more confident about SAT math and essays.

      My daughter is an elementary school students. At one of the teacher-parent meetings last school year we were informed that she has difficulties with understanding certain maths concepts. We decided to find a tutor for her so the problems don't get any worse. We contacted Ms Dominika and she helped our daughter understand the things she had issues with. The atmosphere during their meetings was so friendly that our daughter not only learn a lot but also had fun doing it.

      I was looking for an SAT tutor for my son Michael who had never taken the SAT. We were looking for someone who could teach Michael test taking strategies. Les was a perfect match for my son Michael. Les took every day, real world situations and integrated them into his teaching. Michael responded well to the personal, individualized training that Les provided which matched perfectly with Michael's learning style. We highly recommend Les to any student who is looking for a personal, individualized style of learning.

        About

        I am an educator with over 10 years of experience. I have taught college for over three years and tutored throughout my own education and after. I truly do care about the success of those with whom I work for, so I take all aspects of education very seriously, including tutoring.

        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.
