Your child deserves the best SAT math tutoring experience

With something as important as the SAT on the line, you want to ensure your child gets the very best math tutoring experience. Our expert SAT prep tutors help students work through practice exams and explain tough high school math topics like linear equations and data analysis.

Is your child ready for the SAT math section?

Your child’s scores on the College Board SAT exam can make or break their chances of acceptance at their dream university. The math portion of this standardized test is particularly challenging because it requires both a thorough knowledge of computational mathematics and sharp, accurate problem-solving skills.

Whether your child is preparing to take the test for the first time or trying to boost their previous SAT scores, a private SAT math tutor can help. With an SAT math tutor from Learner, your child can solidify their understanding of essential math concepts and hone their testing skills to get the best possible score.

Benefits students can expect from working with Learner

Thorough math instruction

The SAT math section covers a wide range of topics from pre-algebra and geometry to trigonometry and pre-calculus. In order to score well, students need a deep understanding of these foundational concepts. Our SAT tutors take the time to teach each student at their own pace and build up their knowledge of math fundamentals.

Practical test prep tips

Even students who felt confident in middle school and elementary math often have trouble with the SAT math test. They need to be able to instantly recall the correct strategy or formula for each problem. Sharp mental math skills are also important for the no-calculator section. Our SAT prep tutors help students practice their problem-solving skills effectively to prepare them for test day.

More confidence and personal responsibility

Another important part of a student’s senior year of high school is to prepare for the increased pace and responsibility of college. With Learner, students get the chance to work one-on-one with an experienced math teacher who can help them study effectively and take more responsibility for their education. Seeing progress in their grades and scores gives students more confidence.

Why students love Learner.

Chelsea from Learner helped me to get a full ride to Duke University.

“Chelsea from Learner was the perfect match for me. She customized the training so that it would push me hard - but not too hard where I would get frustrated. I worked with Chelsea for years because she took a genuine interest in me and my future.”

"Stephanie taught me how to be more organized. I was getting Bs and Cs before I started working with her. I used to get overwhelmed before studying for a test. Stephanie taught me how to create “study guides” so I’d have all the big ideas in one place. I am now getting As and Bs and my parents are much happier."

"When I first started working with Alan, I told him I would never be good at math. I barely passed my first two years of high school math and I needed one more hard math class to graduate. Alan believed in me and worked with me on the basics. Little by little, he built up my confidence to the point where I realized I am good at math and I did well in the class."

7. Multiple Unit Conversions (density):

Students are performing an experiment with hydrogen gas. They have a 900 gallon air-tight empty vessel into which they release 940 grams of hydrogen gas. The gas distributes in the vessel, and they next release an additional 3.6 liters of hydrogen into the vessel. What is the final density of the hydrogen gas in the vessel in kilograms per cubic meter? Round your answer to the nearest tenth of a kilogram. (Density is equal to the mass divided by volume and 100 gallons = 0.3785 cubic meters)

Reveal Answer:

1.3 kg/m^3 ]

8. Cumulative Percent Discount:

A home appliance store sells refrigerators. If a floor model is designated for sale, its sticker price is marked down 25% with a sign “Floor Model Sale.” If it is not sold in three weeks, it is marked down another 10% off of the reduced price. Every 3 weeks it is not sold, it gets marked down by an additional 10% of its last reduced price. What is the sale price of a refrigerator whose sticker price was $1800 and it was sold 10 weeks after it was designated for sale? Express your answer in the units of dollars.

Reveal Answer:


9. Exponential vs Linear Model (population):

In the year 2010, population of a town was 15,400. At the next census, taken in the year 2020, the population was 19,700. If the population is assumed to have been growing according to the linear model, by what percent would the population in the year 2006 be smaller than the population in 2006 if exponential model of population of growth was assumed? Round your answer to the nearest tenth of a percent.

Reveal Answer:


10. Weighted Average and Percent Change:

Ms. Felps’ class has 23 students. On the test day, 6 were absent, and the remaining students took the test. The test was graded on a scale from 0 to 80 points. The average point score for the students that took the test was 64. At the end of the week, the 6 students that were absent took a make-up test scaled on the same range of points as the original test. Their average was 70 points. Ms. Felps then computed the average of the entire class. By what percent did the original average increase once all the scores were accounted for in the new class average? Round your answer to the nearest tenth of a percent.

Reveal Answer:


11. Probability from Contingency Table Data:

In a study done for a medication that treats back pain, doctors gave patients experiencing back pain either a test drug or a placebo (sugar pill). The patients were split into two equally sized groups, and were not told which group they belonged to. Upon completion of the experiment, the doctors found that of the patients that were given the drug, the drug was effective in treating back pain for 84 patients and was not effective for 29 patients. Additionally, they found that 3 times as many patients found the drug effective as those who were given the sugar pill and whose back pain was cured.

Based on these results, what is the probability, rounded to the nearest percent, that if a test patient’s back pain is not cured, they were given the sugar pill?

Reveal Answer:


12. Statistics - Distribution Parameters (range):
