If you go to a company that has name recognition from their extensive advertising (such as Kaplan, Princeton Review, etc), you’ll be paying $200/hr or more for the privilege, but did you know that they pay their tutors a starting rate of $35/hr or less? So in essence, you’re paying $200/hour for a $35/hour tutor who has little or no experience. The rest of that money goes into marketing and other overhead costs, and then it’s pure profit for the owners. With me, you’re paying for my expertise and getting one of the premier SAT/ACT tutors in the world. Most companies want to meet with your child for 3 or more hours per week, so even if their rate is a little lower, you’ll end up paying more because they convince you to do more hours than necessary!
