1-1 SAT Tutoring

SAT tutoring from MyGuru is a customized experience featuring 1-1 instruction from a recognized expert (delivered in your home or a local library). 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.

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.  

However, many students often just purchase 5, 10, or 15 hours of tutoring support. We charge a base rate of $95 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.

Our base rate for private SAT tutoring is $99, but we also offer 5, 10, or 15 hour packages which come with discounts of 5, 10, or 15%. That's a long term rate of $99 × 85% = $84.15 per hour. After the first session, if you then choose to continue with a 15 hour package, that's a total cost of $84.15 × 15 hours = $1,262.25.

We encourage you to check around for a better value. Typical hourly rates for 1-1 SAT Test prep from an instructor like Constance can run well above $150 per hour at comparable companies.

We are confident our solution represents strong value for the money – it combines the best of what’s available from the creators of the SAT with an expert MyGuru tutor to create an affordable, yet high quality and customized test prep solution.
