How our test prep works
DETERMINE BASELINE & GOALS
First we establish your baseline score, either through a prior test or a new practice test. We’ll also discuss your admissions plan and timeline.
ESTABLISH A PLAN AND START PREPARING
Next, we’ll create a plan and your tutor will implement it with you. Sessions will occur regularly (with the same tutor) that take the stress out of the prep process while boosting your score.
MAKE SURE YOU’RE ON TRACK:
Once every few weeks we will reevaluate your progress and refine the study plan and tutoring to improve weak areas.
A Typical Test Prep session
Your tutor will review any prior “homework” with you, noting any errors so you recognize and avoid them in the future.
Your tutor will teach you the academic concepts covered by the exam. These might include math, science, reading comprehension, grammar, writing, etc.
It’s not enough to just learn content. Successful students understand how to recognize “patterns” in questions and avoid getting tricked.
You’ll learn how to combine content and strategy to tackle any question on the exam.
Your tutor will assign specific sections of the exam based on your session, and full-length exams (less often) to make you familiar with the test-taking environment.
Online and In-Person Tutoring
Online tutoring occurs via our convenient online lesson space. This is private tutoring (in real-time) just like having an in-person session—but it occurs remotely! Our online lesson space is easy to use and requires NO extra software. All the tools and features you need are built in: a virtual whiteboard, a text editor, a code editor, screen sharing, file sharing, and more.

Our in-person tutoring occurs at your home or at a convenient location. You can choose any productive study space near you such as a library or coffee shop. We'll schedule a session at a time and place that's ideal for you, and your tutor will commute to you! No more driving to a test prep center just to do a bunch of boring worksheets!
Common Challenges with the SAT
The SAT exam is a massive undertaking that requires extensive preparation and patience. Since the vast majority of students have never taken this sort of exam before, they would need to develop a good learning approach. The reason SAT is very tricky is because of its three dimensions, Maths, Reading, Writing, and Language. Students are required to master all three dimensions to get favorable results. Here at TutorNerds, we pair you with a perfect tutor who brings a tailored approach to your learning.
How to get the best SAT tutor near you
With young students who take SAT, it's important to partner with a tutor who can explain these concepts in a way students can understand. The tutor needs to know the material, but also has to have experience working with young students in particular. It all comes down to experience: Has the tutor produced good results with SAT students before. That's why students get results from TutorNerd: Our tutors make difficult concepts easy to understand (check out all our five-star reviews).
