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.

At Learner, we believe that anyone can improve their algebra skills. Learner teaches all age groups and grade levels, whether you or your child are in elementary, high school, or in college.

It's becoming harder for students to find qualified private online math tutors who live in their area. Learner's primary goal is to solve this problem by connecting students with online algebra tutors who are a good fit for them. This way, students can work with qualified teachers worldwide without ever needing to leave their homes. Here are a handful of the locations with the highest demand for online tutoring.

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.

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.

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.

**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."

Learner tutors are outstanding educators with proven track records of helping their students improve SAT and ACT math scores.

A private tutor can help your child prepare for the SAT exam, but not every instructor can ensure results. And if you live outside of a big city, it can be hard to find any local test prep experts. With online tutoring from Learner, you can give your child access to top SAT math test prep educators who have a proven history of helping students boost their test scores.

Preparing for the math section of the SAT exam isn’t just about studying basic math concepts and word problems.

Schedule a risk-free SAT math tutoring session!

Regarding SAT math content, there will be some concepts that a student already thoroughly understands and others that they need a better gauge on. A private tutor can use their time with a student to work on their weak spots and make plans based on what the student is interested in. A lot of SAT math involves applying mathematical concepts to real-world situations. Once a tutor knows what a student’s hobbies and interests are, they can turn these things into practice questions for greater student engagement.

To do well on the SAT, you need to understand the material and remember what you've learned, but you also need to be confident. The more confident a student feels, the more likely they are to persevere through complex questions and try new approaches when something isn’t working, which leads to better test scores. A tutor can give a student the encouragement and positive feedback they need to feel more confident.

Understanding SAT math content will only take a student so far on test day. The SAT is timed so that students have an average of 1 minute and 10 seconds to spend on each question, but some questions may be more complex and require more time. Students can learn necessary SAT test-taking skills from a private tutor to help them make the most of their precious time on test day.

In order to cover all the required material in group SAT classes, instructors must follow a set pace when delivering lesson plans. Some students might be able to keep up and remember what they learn at this speed, but others might need more help. In private tutoring sessions, teachers can always adjust their pace to suit the needs of the pupils. A private tutor may always put the student's needs first if they require more time to ask questions or to reexplain a concept.

Larger classroom sizes can be disruptive for a variety of reasons. Peers can sometimes take a student's attention away, and when they have to speak in front of a group, they may feel nervous. This is yet another factor that makes private SAT tutoring more effective than class instruction. If there are no other things going on, students will be able to focus on the material and get through it quickly.

When a student is upset or feeling like they've failed, a tutor must keep their cool. There will likely be times when a student hits a wall or feels like giving up, and in those instances, they will need a patient tutor willing to work with them until they experience that “light bulb” moment.

One factor distinguishing between a good and an excellent tutor is the instructor’s motivation. If the instructor is motivated by helping their student succeed on the SATs and get their desired score, they are much more likely to significantly impact the student than a tutor who is simply trying to make a little extra money.

Not every student is going to approach the SAT in the same way. While there may be universal test-taking tips and tricks that help all students, every student will also need personalized approaches and assistance to help them excel. A good tutor can watch a student and figure out how they learn best. They will then be able to plan lessons around the student’s strengths and weaknesses.

Between the difficulty of the exam content and the pressure riding on it, tutors may be hard-pressed to find a tutee who is excited by the idea of the SAT. That’s not to say that SAT prep has to be miserable. If a tutor shows up to their lessons full of energy and enthusiasm and includes engaging and exciting content in their sessions, SAT tutoring will be far more enjoyable and productive for the student.

Another factor that distinguishes between a good tutor and an excellent tutor is communication. Even if a teacher is very good at SAT math, if they can’t explain concepts and test-taking strategies in a clear and digestible way, the student won’t be able to understand and remember them.

The SAT can invoke lots of complex emotions in students. Some students may need to do well on the test to get a scholarship they need for college, while others may have a hard time with test anxiety. No matter what they are going through, a good tutor can help students work through their emotional hurdles.

No one likes to be around people who are too proud or full of themselves, but in a one-on-one tutoring situation, these traits can be even more harmful. One of the primary benefits of tutoring is that it helps create a safe learning environment for students where they feel comfortable asking questions and opening up about their struggling areas. A student is likely to feel at ease with a modest and unassuming tutor.

An excellent tutor will help a student strive for the best SAT score possible. If a tutor isn’t ambitious with their hopes and expectations for their students, their students are less likely to aim high and achieve results they are proud of.

In-person SAT math tutoring has existed for decades, and online tutoring is simply the next evolution. With an online platform like Learner, you can access a big pool of exceptional tutors without worrying whether they live in your area. Many students find that accessing the online platform from the comfort of home helps them concentrate and focus better.

Our tutors are experts on the SAT math test. They know the concepts and understand the way questions are worded. Every Learner SAT math tutor can help students recognize wrong multiple-choice answers quickly and give them reliable tips to improve their studying and test-taking skills.

Our Academic Advisor will discuss your child’s unique needs and recommend a tutor that matches their learning style. However, you get the final say in which tutor your child has and can request a new tutor if you aren’t satisfied with your child’s experience.

A private SAT math test prep tutor helps students prepare to take or retake the SAT. Our tutors specifically focus on the math sections of the exam and help students improve their speed and accuracy with no-calculator problems. Learner tutors also explain complicated math concepts from high school algebra and college calculus.

Our proprietary matching system does a great job of matching students with tutors, but there is always room for change if necessary. If you or your child feel that the tutor isn’t ideal, let us know so we can switch you to another tutor at no extra cost.

It takes a little bit of time to match your student with the perfect SAT math tutor, but you can expect to have the first session in a few days of contacting us. The first lesson is completely free and gives your child the chance to make sure they’re comfortable with their tutor.

At Learner, we have a cutting-edge online classroom where tutoring sessions are held. Tutors and students can work on practice tests together on the interactive whiteboard. Students can also upload practice problems to ask for help or demonstrate their problem-solving strategies to their tutors. Each session is automatically recorded for students to access during study sessions.

Definitely. While our SAT math tutoring is focused on the specific knowledge and skills needed for standardized tests, your student can expect to improve their performance in their high school math classes as well.

SAT math tutoring services vary in cost, and sometimes there are discounts for purchasing multiple hours in bulk. In most cases, however, you’ll pay about $90 to $120 per hour.

If you want to be an SAT math tutor with Learner, you need to have several years of math test prep tutoring experience, including time spent teaching online. We also require our tutors to have at least a bachelor’s degree. You need to have an effective teaching style and proof that your students have improved their SAT test scores.

No. According to the IRS, personal expenses, like the cost of a private SAT math tutor, are not eligible deductions.

We offer a full satisfaction guarantee with our service. If you aren’t completely happy with your child’s tutor, you can request a new one at no additional charge

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.

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?
