Frequently Asked Questions about Tutoring
More specifically, about 60% of my SAT or ACT students use about 5 hours, while 20% of my students use fewer (around 3) hours, and the remaining 20% of my students need 7 or more hours.
It usually depends on the student’s starting score, or how much the student is trying to raise their score. A student who starts with a lower score will likely need more hours, while a student who starts with a very high score will likely need fewer hours. Of course, it always depends on the individual student, so you never know for sure!
For LSAT, GMAT, GRE, and MCAT, tutoring might be as short as 3 hours, or much longer. It all depends on what sort of help the student is looking for. If you’re looking for tutoring for those tests, contact me and we can discuss all the options!
If you’d like to know more, contact me and I’ll be happy to answer your questions and discuss my tutoring process with you!
Everything I write on the whiteboards is saved as a PDF file that you can review after the session. So, as long as everything makes sense to you during the session, you don’t have to actually take notes; all the notes are right there for you to review in the future.
That’s the score increase that at times has been claimed by some of the major test prep companies: students who take one of their 25-hour courses, do lots of hours of homework, and take four practice tests, on average would earn increases in that range.
So, if we can achieve an improvement in that range in just a few hours of tutoring, that is a great result!
However, the reason people choose to work with me is because I have a well-earned reputation for helping students achieve what I like to call an “unreasonable score increase.” I want my students to earn score increases beyond that 200-point SAT / 3-point ACT goal described above! And I’m happy to say that it happens often enough that I have lots of success stories from former students!
