Stellar Credentials In An SAT Test Prep Guru Near Me

Your nearby test prep guru would have aced the SAT himself. He would be a National Merit Finalist (scoring in the top 2% of the SAT); or have qualified for MENSA via SAT score submission; or a score equivalent to Harvard’s incoming freshman class. Best, he would have achieved all three.

Next, you might want someone who graduated from a top college himself. Maybe a school that was recently ranked #1 by Forbes (2015).

Teaching and Tutoring Experience of the SAT Guru

You’d also want someone who worked at a prestigious teaching job as an undergrad, such as a teaching assistant through Johns Hopkins’ CTY summer program.

Maybe add a more altruistic teaching endeavor, such as a gig through Upward Bound. There, he’d have worked with low-income students as an academic mentor / test prepper / subject tutor.

To add icing to the cake, your ideal test prep guru near you would have spent some time as a high school teacher.

Naturally, some experience working for more established test prep companies would be a bonus.

Of course, you’d prefer that he has experience, preferable a couple decades’ worth. And not only with high-achieving students. You’d want to make sure he’s comfortable working with a wide range of students.

What You Want And Don’t Want In SAT Preparation Nearby

Oh, and you’d want:

Not to pay for time taking practice tests. You realize that you can manage that with your daughter or son. You don’t need an expensive chaperone for that. Why pay for time taking a test? That’s not really the SAT prep you want to pay for.

And you would want flexibility in scheduling sessions as needed. Your student’s availability might change week to week. The freedom to schedule according to your want and needs would be a great relief.

How Does SAT Tutoring Work?

First, you will take a Real Practice SAT test to establish your baseline score. Though you might have taken a Real SAT recently, you likely won’t have received your scores until at least 3 weeks after your test date.

Now you’re asking yourself: why the emphasis on Real? What does that mean?

There are 2 types of Real in this context:

1: a Real SAT, basically an official SAT taken at a College Board testing center, or

2: a Real Practice Test, one provided by the College Board. These are available free of charge below.

It is the latter Real that is important to you. Most big-box test prep companies create their own tests with their own grading scale. The problem is that their Unreal tests are harder and graded on a harder scale than the Real SAT (Wall Street Journal article). This is a common sales tactic used to create an artificial sense of fear, doubt, and worry.

So, rather than worry about a Fake score from a Fake test, take a Real practice test (download here).

Fourth, you will receive reminders about your sessions. You will receive an email confirmation when you set a session. Then, on the day of the session, you’ll receive a text reminder. This helps you keep on track with your scheduled sessions.
