Private SAT Tutoring

One on one SAT tutoring from MyGuru is a customized experience featuring 1-1 instruction from one of our experienced private SAT tutors.

Students are asked to purchase the The Official SAT Study Guide prior to their first session and complete a diagnostic practice SAT exam to identify strengths and weaknesses. Although all of our SAT tutors have achieved 95th percentile SAT score or better and have at least three years of SAT tutoring experience, based on an initial intake discussion with one of our Managing Tutors, we'll connect you with the best SAT tutor we have available for you, given your unique situation.

The first session involves a review of this diagnostic test, an overview of each section of the test, and development of an SAT study plan.  In developing your personalized SAT study plan, our tutors will consider your starting point, target score, unique strengths and weaknesses, test date, and schedule.  After the initial meeting, there will be a series of 1-2 hour sessions in which strategies for each section of the SAT are reviewed and practice problems are completed. Our private SAT tutoring services include regular practice tests, assigned between sessions, to measure and track progress. Tutoring sessions are delivered in your home or a local library.
