Get The Best SAT Tuition From Expert Tutors.

At A-List, we have been helping students maximise their scores on standardised tests since 2005. Our tutors, who are graduates of top US universities, undergo rigorous SAT training and participate in ongoing professional development.

Director Tutors are our most experienced tutors, many of whom have more than 20 years’ experience teaching the tests and create our educational materials.

In addition to personalised 1-1 SAT test tutoring, we also provide intensive SAT prep courses and ACT prep courses designed specifically for group preparation.

Should I get an SAT tutor?

Many students choose to get tuition as an effective way to help them prepare for the test. Clients say our private SAT tutoring is worth it, as it is individualised and focused on each student, giving them real-time feedback on their work and reminders to apply efficient test-taking approaches.

All A-List tutors are professionally trained and have also excelled on standardised tests themselves. They act as guides to help students unveil their strengths and areas for improvements, while allowing students to take ownership of the process.

When should I start tutoring for the SAT?

It can take months of practice to solidify the content and consolidate techniques to attain a high score in the SAT. At A-List, we recommend that you start preparing for this test after you have taken your GCSE exams, to give yourself ample time to review the content, learn strategic techniques, and develop robust psychological confidence so you can excel when the real test approaches.

What does our SAT tutoring include?

Following a student’s diagnostic test, we will design a customised timeline so you have a clear understanding of the study plan.

"My tutor Charlotte McKechnie was excellent. She made me feel confident and able in every session, and all the work we did was targeted on specific areas of improvement (I was studying for the SAT). In the end, I obtained a score that I was delighted with, so the sessions really paid off. Thank you to A-List and Charlotte :)"

"A-List provided me with some of the most dedicated tutors I have ever worked with. They were extremely knowledgable, encouraging, kind and made lessons fun and engaging. Most importantly you can tell the tutors care about their students, which for me was a massive motivation to work harder."

Pricing

We offer a range of fee levels and discounted packages to ensure we can meet a student's requirements.

SAT ACT tutoring pricing table

Struggling to decide between the SAT and ACT?

Both exams are lengthy and timed, with the SAT providing a few more seconds per question. The SAT has a more complex questioning style, requiring careful unravelling. Both tests offer extra time for eligible students. Our advice is to try both exams under exam conditions. We provide invigilated practice tests, available in-person (at our Central London office) or online.
