1-1 SAT Tutoring
An SAT Prep Package from MyGuru is a comprehensive solution consisting of a test prep book, 15 hours of customized, 1-1 instruction from a recognized expert (delivered in your home or a local library), access to online prep for the new SAT from Magoosh, and introductory college admissions and financial planning sessions. All for only $1,125.
Students receive an official SAT prep book prior to their first session & complete a diagnostic practice test to identify strengths & weaknesses. The first session involves a review of this diagnostic test, an overview of each section of the test, and development of a study plan. This is followed by a series of 1-2 hour sessions in which strategies for each section of the test are reviewed & practice problems are completed. The full package provides a total of 15 hours of customized, 1-on-1 test prep, and includes access to Magoosh's online SAT portal with additional test prep questions.
However, many students often just purchase 5, 10, or 15 hours of tutoring support. We charge a base rate of $80 per hour, and then offer 5, 10, or 15% discounts for investing in 5, 10, or 15 hours in advance.
In all cases, we help you develop a customized study plan designed around your particular strengths, weaknesses, test date, etc.
