Test Prep

We offer preparation for a number of standardized tests.

Cornell Chimes Bell Tower in Cornell University Campus


Our tutors stand out because they:

  1. Take the SAT regularly (every 2 years and/or whenever there is a major change) to stay current and to remain the very best.
  2. Score above 98% on their SAT to even qualify, though most score above 99%.
  3. Undergo rigorous training and are constantly supervised and guided by Tatum. You can look at Tatum's background, credentials, and testimonials on her website at www.tutortimenow.com.

Our results speak for themselves. Most national ‘famous’ test prep programs boast a score raise above 25 points, whereas our average score raise is over 100 (for the 2400 SAT scale).

Higher scores lead to increased academic and career opportunities.

Tutor Time Now's SAT Preparatory Program is a personalized course that Tatum Hutton perfected over the past 12 years after getting a perfect score herself. She knew that there was a way to translate her success into something that could help others. 

Because of Tatum's expertise, 97% of her students achieved or surpassed their goals, and are currently thriving in colleges, law schools, medical schools, etc., all across the country. Tatum attributes this to the fact that she relentlessly encourages students through positive reinforcement, humor, and constantly reminding them that they can be and do anything that they set their minds to--the very philosophy that led her to Harvard and a successful career.

Spaces fill up as much as 9-18 months in advance--so PLEASE schedule your course dates as soon as you make a decision.

Customized Test Prep Tutoring includes a great deal of time analyzing the student's scores and assignments, grading assignments/practice tests, customizing lessons, and analyzing all results for maximum improvement.

It takes on average 12 sessions to properly prepare for most standardized tests.

If after the first attempt the student did not meet his/her goal, we usually recommend that students take a break, and then do a shortened prep course before the next attempt.

The only other cost for test prep is the cost of books. For SAT and ACT prep (only), there is a one-time book fee of $150. This provides students with access to ALL of the books they will need for the entire course. For all other tests, the books are recommended by the tutor and the cost is the responsibility of the client.

For parents of students with learning differences (LD), Tatum has developed numerous techniques for success. The approach for an LD student is even more customized, often longer in duration.
