FAQ's

Find the answers to your questions about the SAT tutoring program here.

If your tutor knows the test well and you put in the work, then absolutely. Almost all of our students improve; the amount of improvement and the pace at which it happens can vary significantly from student to student, but it is very possible to see substantial score improvement on the SAT if you put in the time and effort.

The first and most important thing is experience with the test. Above all, the SAT is a test of your pattern-recognition skills; in order to teach you to recognize and exploit the test’s patterns, your tutor first needs to know them backwards and forwards.

Beyond that, there are several other aspects that should also factor into your decision:

  • Personality and teaching style
  • Scheduling availability
  • Cost

There are a ton of great tutors out there—many of them on this very site—and you should absolutely be able to find one who’s an ideal fit for your needs.

It depends on the specific tutor/company, as well as on the format of the tutoring. On one end of the spectrum is the SAT prep course. These can take many different forms, from a library of instructional videos that you work through on your own to a virtual or even in-person class with a live instructor, and their prices can range from $100 (or even less) to thousands of dollars. The difference in cost is usually due to the amount of included material and the number of included hours with an instructor.

The “middle ground” approach is the hybrid course. These prep courses consist mainly of classroom or independent work but include a certain number of 1:1 instructional hours within the initial cost; this creates a more financially feasible option that still provides some amount of personalized instruction.

Finally, traditional 1:1 tutoring will often be the most expensive option. Most tutors charge by the hour as opposed to charging a flat fee, which—depending on the hourly rate—can result in a larger financial outlay than would be required for a prep course. Don’t simply assume that 1:1 tutoring is going to be prohibitively expensive, however! Hourly rates can vary significantly, and many tutors will work with families to devise a prep plan that is as efficient as possible in order to optimize the cost-to-results ratio.

While we obviously hope that you work with Inspirica Pros, there are many ways to prepare for the SAT successfully. You can choose to partner with a tutor, you can take a course, or you can opt to prepare by yourself using the many resources that are available. Whichever path you select, make sure it follows these key tenets:

  • Look for a mix of content and strategy. There are many great (and sometimes free) options that will help you review the grammar and math concepts with which you may be struggling; Khan Academy is one example. Remember, however, that getting a good SAT score is about more than knowing the material—it’s about knowing the test, its patterns, and how best to attack them.
  • There’s no substitute for timed practice. Make sure that your prep plan incorporates plenty of timed practice sections and full practice tests, particularly as you get closer to the date of the test.
  • Review your mistakes. Practice alone isn’t enough. Make sure that you’re building in time to look back over your timed sections and review the questions you miss. In Verbal, ask yourself why your answer was wrong and what makes the correct answer better; in Math, try to locate the error in your work, then see if you can rework the problem correctly without time pressure.

Start by working backwards from your application deadlines. Remember that you want to allow room to take the test 2-3 times if necessary, and that it’s generally better to err on the side of allowing too much time for repeat testing (to a point) rather than not enough time. The SAT is offered roughly every other month, so it usually makes sense to plan for your first test date to be 6+ months before applications are due. 

We generally recommend that students aim to get in at least 8 weeks of prep before their first test date, so in total, you’ll probably want to start preparing for the SAT roughly 8 months before your first application is due. With early action and early decision deadlines typically falling in November, this means that students ideally want to begin the prep process no later than early spring of their junior year.

It’s important to note, however, that this timeline can vary depending on the individual student. Talk to your college counselor about what specific timeline best fits your admissions needs.

Despite what you might have heard, there is no “easiest” or “hardest” month to take the SAT; in the event that a particular test form is slightly more or less difficult than average, the process that College Board uses to standardize scoring accounts for that fact in order to ensure fairness. Because of that, you should plan to take the test at whatever time lines up best with your preparation.

Generally speaking, junior year is the sweet spot to begin preparing for and taking the SAT. By that point, students will typically have seen most if not all of the content that shows up on the test, but they’ll still have enough time to fit in several test administrations before their college applications are due.

There is no limit on how many times you can take the SAT, so feel free to sit for the test as many times as your heart desires. It is worth noting, however, that many students find that their score improvement slows after approximately three test dates, and it’s also important to remember that preparing for this test is work; make sure you’re not prioritizing the SAT to the point that you compromise either the other important aspects of your application, such as grades and extracurricular activities, or your mental well-being.
