SAT test prep, when done right, can be very rewarding. I helped my last student raise her composite SAT score by over 100 points after just 8 lessons!

Given my background and experience in tutoring algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and precalculus, I have helped countless high school students with test prep for the SAT math sections. SAT math requires a different way of looking at math problems and applying concept skills to solve them. Students work with me on practice sets and practice tests so they can learn how to dissect problems in a quick, practical way and find the right answers. Their time management and test taking skills improve through regular test prep as they master how to navigate both the calculator and no-calculator sections.

During all the years I’ve tutored students for the SAT Reading section, I show them exactly how to break down the material in each passage into plain English, interpret the questions as simple directions, and use the best strategies to find ...

About Natalie

I don't just teach them how to count, read, and write: I show them how to build on their skills and reach their true potential. I know from my own experience how hard it is t

My son has been working with Natalie on SAT practice tests, mainly on the English portion of the SAT. Her style of teaching is to help him thinking through the problems and the ways to tackle them. So at the end of the day, my son is learning the tools to solve a problem/answer a question correctly. When he is doing the tests himself, Natalie’s approach is stuck with him. Overall, his time in Natalie’s class has been well spent. I am also glad to see that with all these remote learning at his school, he is able to get one-on-one attention every week to truly learn something and get him prepared for SAT.

My 14 year old daughter worked with Natalie weekly over a 2 month period to prep for the SSAT and HSPT. She did a fabulous job helping my daughter prepare; she was super knowledgeable, patient, and supportive. My daughter has so much confidence going into her tests, thanks to Natalie. We highly recommend her!!!

Marwa has been very patient and engaging with my seventh grader who is challenged with math primarily due to dyslexia. So far, it seems to be a great student/tutor match and I’m eager to see how this propels my daughter forward towards a successful year. Thank you Marwa for your dedication and excellent work!

Marwa helped my son on very short notice understand material from his advanced 8th grade algebra class. He felt such relief after spending time with her and gaining a better grasp of the material. We will definitely be booking Marwa again!

I am an MIT tutor specializing in math, science, and test prep, and I have received a perfect score on the SAT Math. I have taught math anywhere between pre-algebra and calculus (including including test prep) for 5 years. I also have received perfect scores on both ACT Math and SAT Math Level 2 (SAT Subject Test).

Before we begin our lessons, I ask the student to take a diagnostic test that I provide and discuss the results with the parents and/or student so that we can develop a plan that works the best for the student and his/her schedule.

During the lessons, I drill the students on these topics until I am fully convinced that the student has fully mastered the materials. As we progress through the course and as the student make progress in different areas, I adapt the curriculum so that the students can most benefit from the lessons.

I normally use the Princeton Review's Cracking the SAT with 6 Practice Tests, Kaplan's SAT Math Workbook, and McGraw Hill's SAT with 4 ...

Nayoon took my daughter from a failing grade to an “A”. I am indebted to her. My daughter loves Nayoon because she is interested, kind & cheery. She is ten steps ahead and understands exactly what the teacher wants her to learn. But, more importantly, Nayoon taught her how to think and not just memorize. Nayoon doesn’t try to waste time or spread out a lesson. She cares more about my daughter learning & absorbing & being prepared! My daughter now wants to take the AP exam in chemistry because Nayoon made chemistry interesting & understandable. Thank you so much!!! Hilary Kramer

"Aalok Shah's in depth knowledge of admission testing, coupled with his easy demeanor, made all the difference for our son as he prepped for the college process. In addition to advising our son on the proper material to study, Aalok taught him to strategically tackle each section and manage his question answering time accordingly. He set up realistic weekly goals for our son to meet as well as providing many study guides and materials for his reference. We found Aalok’s advice on college planning extremely useful and he was always readily available to answer any questions that we had. Aalok’s calm and encouraging personality eased the stress surrounding standardized testing. This fall, our son will join the Rutgers University inaugural Honors College Class of 2019 with a full tuition, room & board scholarship worth $102,400. We are extremely grateful to Aalok for the integral role he played in making this happen. We cannot recommend Aalok highly enough to any family who is embarking on the college pathway."

About Sat

A standardized test widely used for college admissions, the SAT tests the skills students acquire in high school. Most students take the SAT during their junior or senior years of high school, when they begin applying for college admissions. It's never too early to start preparing for one of the most important exams students ever take. 

Most guidelines recommend an absolute minimum of 10 hours of preparation prior to taking the SAT. Moderate study schedules hover around 40 hours of study time, and super-charged schedules at about 100 hours. The soon you start, the better prepared you'll be. Whether you have 10 or 100 hours to study, you'll get the most out of your time working with a private SAT teacher. 

Why Sign Up for SAT Prep Classes?

In order to achieve high

...

scores and competitive college applications, high school students should start preparing as soon as possible. In SAT classes for children, students learn to overcome test anxiety and gain confidence. They'll learn how to take the test, practice working through SAT-like questions, and vastly improve their scores. 

In addition, SAT classes for adults can be quite beneficial for non-traditional students applying to undergraduate programs. Although some colleges waive the SAT requirements for non-traditional students, some still require all applicants to take the exams. Even if your college of choice doesn't require the SAT for adult admissions, they might still require it for financial aid qualification. Taking an SAT prep course will get you back into the test-taking mode and help ensure you get a respectable score. 

When you sign up with TakeLessons, you will receive some of the best SAT tutoring available online. Between catering to your individual needs and providing you with the best SAT prep services, your SAT tutor will have you well on your way to reaching your highest potential.

The Benefits of An Online SAT Tutor

Nowadays, it’s becoming more common than ever for students to receive online instruction. Students eagerly turn to online courses because they are comfortable and confident learning in a remote setting. These online courses certainly have their benefits, as they often provide much more flexibility than learning in a physical classroom. What’s more, private SAT tutoring online gives you the opportunity to receive the individualized attention you need to perform your best on the exam.

The beauty of our online SAT tutoring here at TakeLessons is that you can begin receiving additional help wherever and whenever best works for you. All you need is an internet connection to begin your SAT tutoring lessons. Simply sign on using a computer and a web camera or log on with your smartphone. You can virtually meet with your SAT tutor from the comfort of your living room or the privacy of your at-home office--wherever best suits your learning style. Since all instruction occurs remotely, you do not need to drive to a classroom environment or meet your tutor in person.

And to top it all off, because you get to choose your own private instructor, you can pick one who can teach you at times that work best for you. Whether you want to receive your private SAT tutoring sessions after work, before school, or over the weekend, your tutor will accommodate your schedule.

The Best Way to Get SAT Help and What You'll Study in Lessons

Although you can find plenty of free SAT lessons online, the best way to prepare for the test is by studying with a private SAT teacher. In private lessons, you'll receive individualized instruction and your teacher's undivided attention — two benefits that simply aren't possible when watching online videos or studying in a larger class setting. In private lessons, over students overcome challenges and improve their scores fast. 

Plus, every private SAT prep course is different. Tutors customize each class to meet each student's needs and preferred learning style. With personalized course content and syllabi, students can focus on the subjects that need the most improvement and work on a timeline scheduled to prepare for a specific test date. 

Your private SAT tutor will know how to assess your needs and help you work toward your dream SAT score. After all, they are experts at catering lessons to suit your needs, as they offer you the private attention you deserve. Wherever you are in your SAT preparation journey, whether you are a beginner or an advanced student, it’s never too early to begin planning for your future.

Sample Curriculum for Beginner SAT Preparation

During the beginning of your SAT preparation, your teacher will have you take an initial practice test to establish a baseline and reasonable goals, depending on the amount of time you have together. You'll then begin working on strategies to improve the areas which need the most progress. Your teacher might cover the following topics:

  • Take your first practice test to establish a baseline score
  • Set a goal for your target SAT scores
  • Identify subjects that need the most improvement
  • Introduction to strategies for SAT success

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate SAT Preparation

More familiar with the SAT, you'll practice strategies to improve your scores. You'll also work on test-taking skills. Your teacher might cover the following:

  • Lessons in SAT-based reading, writing, no-calculator math, calculator math, and optional essay
  • Introduction to deductive reasoning strategies for multiple choice questions
  • Learn strategies for approaching each type of math and verbal question on the SAT
  • Learn the elements of strong essays

Sample Curriculum for Advanced SAT Preparation

As your test date approaches, you'll be more focused on building your confidence for taking the real test. You'll revisit past mistakes to reinforce everything you've practiced. Your teacher might cover the following:

  • Understand mistakes made on practice tests
  • Reduce testing anxiety by mimicking SAT testing atmosphere
  • Learn how to manage time and practice prioritizing questions
  • Take final practice test to see improved score and boost your confidence in preparation for actual exam

Prepare with an SAT Tutor Near You

A quick search will direct you to pages of highly qualified, experienced, and personable SAT teachers who offer lessons to students of all ages both online and in person.
