FAQ’s

 

How long will it take for my student to do the assignments?

Each assignment will take your student an hour to an hour and a half, and the practice tests will take 4 hours each.


How can I be sure my student is completing their assignments?

Effective communication is very important to me. I will let you know immediately if your student doesn't complete an assignment by the due date, and we'll work together to ensure the assignment is completed as soon as possible.


What does it mean that assignments in the test prep course are "video-graded?"

"Video-graded" means I record videos of me going over your student's assignments with a fine toothed comb, pointing out errors, teaching subject material and test-specific strategies, giving suggestions for better ways to do problems - everything your student would get in a tutoring session. See here for an example.


How can the video-graded assignments in the test prep course replace tutoring sessions?

In some ways, the video-graded assignments are even better than tutoring sessions. In a tutoring session, as soon as I've delivered a piece of instruction, it lives only in the student's memory or in their notes. The video-graded assignments, on the other hand, exist forever as video files that students can refer back to as often as they'd like.


What if I have a question?

Email or call me anytime, and I'll respond within 24 hours.


Do you tutor other tests besides the SAT and ACT?

In the past I have tutored other tests (ISEE, SSAT, HSPT, etc.) but I'm focusing only on the ACT and SAT at this point.
