Top SAT Tutor related questions
You can find reviewed and rated SAT tutors here on Airtasker. To start with, ask questions like:
- Select the “Post a task” button and fill out the form.
- Include details like your location or if you prefer online SAT tutoring, your budget, and the student’s available schedule.
- Tap “Get quotes” and wait for the offers to pop up. You can view each Tasker’s ratings and customer reviews, compare them, then pick the one you like best.
Some questions you should ask your potential SAT tutor include:
- What is your approach or teaching style?
- Do you use real test questions?
- What results do your clients see?
- What makes you an SAT expert?
- Do you assign homework?
- How can you improve my diagnostic score?
- How do you cope with test anxiety?
This would depend on the student’s situation as well as your budget. Some say that students who have scored 75% or higher in a mock test may not need a tutor. These students may just need a couple of test preparation books and encouragement from their parents (and snack delivery while they work doesn’t hurt either). But for those who struggle to improve or study on their own, SAT tutoring can be a great help.
A typical tutoring session can be as short as 30 minutes or as long as 2 hours. The length and frequency can also vary depending on how soon the student will be sitting for their SATs, their current aptitude. Some sessions may also include practice tests (SATs run for 3-4 hours). What’s important is that the student maximises the time spent on each session and that any logistics concerns (whether at-home or virtual SAT tutoring) are taken care of.
Usually, SAT home tutors do offer practice tests. Some start the first session with a diagnostic exam. Practice tests quantify the student’s current level and growth, help the tutor and student determine what areas to focus on further, and support a test-anxious student remain calm and focused during the actual exam. You can also ask your potential tutor about the practice tests they plan to give during the sessions.
In general, SAT tutoring can also aid with the ACTs. Since the tests are quite similar, and some students may need help with test-taking nervousness, SAT tutoring can suffice for those who plan to take both tests. If you want to find a tutor who focuses more on the ACTs, you can request one on our platform as well. You can also hire Taskers for other sorts of jobs, such as help with proofreading a college entrance essay.

What do an SAT tutor’s services include?
When you book an SAT tutor via Airtasker, you can expect several sessions that will cover assessing a student’s current level (strengths and weaknesses), improving the student’s knowledge and test-taking abilities, and emotionally preparing a student for the exam. Whether you prefer to have private tutoring at home or need a virtual set-up, you can expect your Tasker to do the following:
SAT practice exams
First, the SAT tutor learns about the student, their test dates, thoughts on the test, how they feel about the test and their skills, and their own goals. It is vital that the student and tutor build rapport and that they are on the same page from the very start of their sessions. While a parent might have done the tutor’s hiring, it is the student that the Tasker will primarily be working with.
The tutor may also give a diagnostic test or simply ask for diagnostic test scores. This serves as the starting point for the student’s target score, and your hired tutor will fill in the gap via the next step: goal-setting and planning.
SAT Tutoring: Goal-setting and study plans
Ideally, the SAT tutor sets up a study plan to guide the rest of the sessions. This can be built around a target test score or target university. This will vary from student to student, and a good tutor should recognise that. They should also help set feasible expectations.
Next, the tutor helps a student plan their study schedule. This may be built around their current classes and extracurriculars and how many weeks are left until the test date. This should not be a cookie-cutter type of study plan; it should be made based on the student’s needs and goals.
Assessment of test-taking skills
The tutor then helps the student identify and address their weak points based on their diagnostic exam, practice tests, or their assessment of their skills. They get to know the student’s thinking process and explain challenging material in an easily-digestible manner. They should not merely go through the answers or solutions - the student must understand the process behind getting the correct answer.
Also, a tutor may give suggestions for approaching various problems and will go through them, one step at a time. If the student plans to take the written essay portion of the SAT, the tutor must also include this in the study plan. This includes writing well under a time-limit, reading comprehension, and analysing written material.
Tutoring: Practical strategies for exam-takers
Some students perform well outside of tests, but the time pressure can wreck their focus. The tutor’s job is to help them get comfortable with the activity. This can include learning testing strategies, learning how to manage their time, using only the allowed materials and official, and taking the practice tests early in the morning (the same time SATs are usually scheduled).
Tutoring mentorship and support
An excellent SAT tutor should also have an eye and heart for students who are struggling under pressure. They should encourage their students and let them know that they support them, no matter their final score.
Once your child is off to college, they may need help moving their things to their new dorm. Or, you might even decide to move your family to a neighbourhood closer to their school! You can easily find movers or real estate experts on Airtasker to help you out once you reach this new phase of your family life.
