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 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.

Mr. Mougy Ahmed has done wonders as a math tutor for our sophomore son! He has a very agreeable, non-threatening tutoring style, and our son enjoyed working with him right away. Our son was getting D's and C's in Algebra II , even with the assistance of a previous math tutor. Mougy came to our house and immediately recognized where our son was misunderstanding foundational concepts in Algebra II, and worked with him to build up that knowledge base and apply those skills correctly. He has been highly responsive in setting up tutoring sessions, sending additional lessons/exercises via email, and even holding extra sessions in advance of math tests/quizzes. As a direct result of Mougy's tutoring, our son earned a B+ and an A on his last two math tests. We highly recommend him to any student or parent who is searching for tutoring assistance.

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.

Barbara tutored my twin girls over the summer to prepare them for the SAT. They had tried the test before without personalized tutoring and did not do well. Barbara was great. She traveled out to my home and was very punctual. She was able to engage my girls at each session which was no easy feat as the last thing they wanted to do in the summer was math. I am happy to report that both girls saw a score increase of over 130 points in math. And not only that, they both are earning A's this year in AP stat. I believe that is a direct result of their work with Barbara. I highly recommend her.

My experience with Erin was very brief but, very helpful and enjoyable. My 4th grader needed help with his writing. she did a very thorough assessment of his ability and proceeded. It was summer and we had a lot of travel and were not consistent clients. We are currently looking to rehire and work with her this winter/spring.

Wendy is a wonderful instructor. She also helps the child have confidence in his/her self. She offers encouraging support in addition to her tutoring skills. I have seen a child bloom from an underachiever to an above average student.

I have had tutors for my daughter previously. None have taken any approach as Ms Nancy. She has provided my daughter with ways to solve problems that she can do and her confidence in completing problems has been amazing. Even the teacher is amazed with how my daughter goes about solving problems Ms Nancy has done more for my daughter with school than FCPS has done in 3yrs

    Nancy is always punctual and prepared for teaching different lessons. She is a great listener and instructor since she is able to connect with students effectively when teaching various lessons. She uses different methods of teaching which helps students learn since they are responsive to the different techniques implemented. She is great colleague who is always helpful to others and maintains her priority on her students. I think that Nancy is always able to overcome any challenges that students face as she is always helpful and has had previous experience teaching students of all levels. I think that she has great work quality, that she is professional and she is always a pleasure to work with.

    She tutored my husband during his college years in India, and much later, she tutored our younger daughter with her AP Calculus course during her senior year in high school (2013-2014). Dr. Mitra continues to mentor her time to time as she pursues a Bachelor's degree in engineering. Dr. Mitra, a genuinely caring and compassionate individual goes above and beyond expectations when it comes to working with her students. Her teaching style is rigorous, but by using fun-filled activities as supplements she makes sure that Mathematics is not just a subject to be mastered. Moreover, her students learn to love the subject and genuinely enjoy learning. She is patient and always ready to do whatever it takes to facilitate student 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.

    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.
