INFORMATION

  • 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 12-15 sessions to properly prepare for most standardized tests.

  • If after the first attempt the student did not meet his/her goal, we typically recommend that students take a break, and then do a shortened prep course (4-6 sessions) before the next attempt.

  • The only other cost for test prep is the cost of books. Only for SAT and ACT prep, there is a one-time book fee of $125. This provides students with access to ALL the books they will need for the course. For all other tests, the books are recommended by Tatum, and the cost is the responsibility of the client.

  • For students with learning differences (LD), Tatum has developed numerous techniques for success. The approach is even more customized, often longer in duration, but equally successful.

Testimonials

By Real Students & Parents

Tatum is very devoted to her students and makes a point to get to know her students and more important how they each individually learn, allowing them to prosper in their academic pursuits.

I first met Tatum when I began the scary endeavor of the SAT standardized tests. I had taken one or two tests already and had gotten scores that weren’t bad but I knew I could do better. Tatum and I started tutoring sessions and I was definitely expecting a bit more rigorous work but she made the work and studying very easy to manage and I eventually saw progress in my test scores. Contrasting to other test prep programs, Tatum’s approach is to prepare students not so much as to SAT and ACT specific tactics and more of general test taking strategies that allows students to not only apply those strategies to standardize tests, but to any other test a student may come across in their education. Tatum is very devoted to her students and makes a point to get to know her students and more important how they each individually learn, allowing them to prosper in their academic pursuits.

The one on one attention Tatum was able to give was extremely helpful...

We used Tatum to help both our kids prepare for HSPT exams and would gladly recommend her to others. The one on one attention Tatum was able to give was extremely helpful as it allowed the time to be spent on my children’s specific areas of need. My kids did great on their exams and were admitted to both high schools where they applied. We also recently used Tatum to provide some early college counseling for my oldest child. Kids don’t always want to listen to their parents, so it was great to have a resource like Tatum. Tatum spent an evening with my daughter and me covering all kinds of important college prep things to be thinking about during high school. My daughter came out of that meeting with a clearer understanding of her options and a road map for her remaining high school years.

Tatum was able to identify Wyatt's strengths and challenges and fine tune her tutoring program over time, to bring out his best.

We had the good sense to sign our son Wyatt up with Tatum early on, commencing sessions in the summer following sophomore year, something I would highly recommend. Tatum was able to identify Wyatt's strengths and challenges and fine tune her tutoring program over time to bring out his best. For our son working with Tatum not only improved his performance substantively, but, as improvement was documented, the process bolstered his confidence for the tests as well. He went in as calm as one can be, under the circumstances, and achieved solid results. He'll be attending Cal Berkeley in the fall.
