My two children have worked with Dickson across a range of math disciplines including Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, and Trigonometry, as well as SAT Prep. They always walk out the door with a much better understanding of the math concepts they are working on than when they walked in.

Best tutoring service out there!! John Young makes it affordable and convenient by coming to your home. His skill set and knowledge are so vast he can switch from math to science on the fly. John can read the student and teach a concept several different ways so that it matches their learning style. He stays with a concept until the 'light bulb clicks' and makes it fun. We've been with John for 5 years and our children's grades in both math and science have been consistent and top notch because they are truly learning the subject matter. Great SAT and ACT prep course!

Poojitha had a two hour session with my daughter today and we have scheduled two additional two hour sessions over next two days in prep for a GED Math section test. She is very quick to return calls, punctual, professional, and very flexible. Most importantly, my daughter liked her style and found her proactive in making sure that she was really "getting it" as they went along. Very nice too! No negatives at all. Would refer her to anyone.

I am so grateful that I happened to come across Kimberly Canty and KJS Tutoring Services when I had reached a low point in my GRE preparation. Until I worked with Kimberly I had been using self-study prep services for a year and I had taken the GRE once, receiving a dismal quantitative score of 155. After working with Kimberly I received a quant score of 163. I am giving Kimberly five stars for the following reasons: - extremely reasonable rates ($40 per hour for GRE Math prep), plus she was able to provide me a new copy of the Official Guide to the Revised GRE free of charge - Sessions are held via Skype, which worked perfectly with my schedule, plus the sessions did not lose anything qualitatively; I was able to view her blackboard via the camera, plus we used online practice tests to run through timed drills together - Kimberly not only provides a foundation in the basics, but also reveals the subtle tricks and tips that help you identify and solve the more advanced problems more efficiently - She identifies your weak points and targets them during sessions and through homework assignments - She is incredibly encouraging and instills the confidence you need on test day (a critical point as my low confidence was definitely affecting my performance) Again, highly recommend her services!

My son is a senior at HRA and needed help with his SAT prep, since his score from May testing was not enough to apply in the college of his top choices. I reached out back in June of 2015 and ended up hiring Megan as a tutor after a long conversation with her and felt very confident about my choice even though there weren't much of review about her. Megan was very attentive and flexible with my very busy senior's schedule ( plays foot ball and hockey) I was pleased with her assessment of his skills before she began. She has helped out so much and now that we have the result of his improved recent SAT score, he is putting in the early decision application to one of his choice school. is improved enough to apply at school of his choice. I believe that Megan truly loves math and teaching others to love and improve on this subject and enjoys what she does. Charges for the lessons are very reasonable and to be frank, I would pay a lot more for all the extra work she has done for my son. I wish she could've been my son's tutor during his entire high school. Not only Megan is highly recommended by both my husband and I, my son is happy with the help she has given him. I wish I could give her 10 stars but unfortunately, 5 is max.

Andrea was super helpful then any tutor I have ever had. She makes you feel so smart and give some great advice. We did not just jump into writing the paper which I liked. We talked about it brainstormed and then began. She helped me receive an A on the hardest paper I had to do this semester. Without her I would have not passed.

Joy was an excellent tutor for my twin boys. They were both having trouble in different problem areas in 10th grade math, and she made a plan to successfully help them both. She independently began talking with them about college, and it went so well that we retained her for SAT test prep and other college readiness prep. It was worth the investment!

Personal Statement I am a graduate of James Madison University. I double majored in English Literature and Arabic. In college, I started tutoring students of all ages. I assisted them in various areas of study, including essay and Arabic grammar. After college, I worked at a refugee center with children of immigrants. I helped them to adjust to a new environment, while simultaneously adapting to the public school curriculum. Also I have experience tutoring groups of students as an assistant ESL teacher. Working in different environments, with a diverse range of students, encouraged me to explore more creative tutoring methods in order to understand and communicate ideas. Through my experience as a tutor, I developed a multifaceted approach to teaching and learning; a style that is adaptable and uniquely catered to each individual personality. I have found that humor and games are particularly effective in motivating students to achieve in subjects they may otherwise find dull or abstract. While I tutor a broad range of subjects, I am most passionate about languages and literature. I have spent much of my life traveling abroad and have a deep affinity for culture.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
