Frequently Asked Questions

How does Kaplan's Private Tutoring work?

After you enrol in a tutoring option, you will first sit the diagnostic exam and then begin the tutoring once you have established a base level with your tutor. From this, your tutor will create a study plan that suits your needs based on your strengths and weaknesses. If you are not happy with the first hour of your tutoring package, we will be happy to give you a full refund and cancel the rest of your sessions, providing you notify us after the first session.

If you want private tutoring because you are unable to attend a classroom course, please note that you will still have a significant amount of work to do in between your sessions, and so you might not want to do more than 2 sessions of 2 hours each per week.

If you’re unsure of how to structure your private tutoring session, do not worry! First complete the diagnostic exam, then meet with your tutor for the first one-hour session, get the homework and see how you feel. You can discuss with your tutor what the best structure and schedule will be for you.

Beyond your general availability (i.e. evenings, daytimes, weekends) you can also schedule additional sessions directly with your tutor and adjust the pace depending on how you’re progressing.

How long are each of the tutoring sessions?

In general, we recommend your tutoring session be between 90 minutes to 2 hours long, and usually meeting no more than 2 times a week so that you also have time to complete assignments. However, it is completely up to you!

How long does it take to match me a tutor?

Usually it can take up to 10 days. However, the more flexible you are in terms of availability the quicker we are likely to match you to a tutor.

Can the tutor travel to my office/house?

Outside of centre tutoring is considered on a case by case basis and depending on where the student is located could incur an additional surcharge. However, if you are unable to make it to our London centre we do offer Online Private Tutoring. 

How does Online Private Tutoring work?

It's very easy and extremely convenient! Just ensure you have a working internet connection, and test your video and voice connection on Skype prior to your first session. This will ensure a smooth one-to-one session with your tutor.

Can I meet a tutor?

Not beforehand, however rest assured that you will be in expert hands. Not only are all of our tutors required to have scored in the 90th percentile or above on the SAT, they are all put through a rigorous training process making sure that they know how to convey the strategies to students of all levels. They are also extremely engaging and passionate about helping students grow their confidence with the test!

How much time do I need to give myself to prepare for the SAT?

We recommend giving yourself around 2-3 months before the test date. Then allow for about 2 weeks to review before your actual test. Also, make sure the day before the test you take a break and relax from studying to ensure everything you've learned has soaked in.

SAT Classroom Student, Easter Programme, April 2015

The teaching was very thorough and constructive. I really liked the structure to the classes and taking all of the practice tests under exam conditions was great practice.

SAT Classroom Student, Easter Programme, April 2015

My teacher was very clear when explaining a question and made sure that the entire class participated. He was funny, approachable, happy to answer and explain any questions we had and his tips for the essay were particularly helpful. Thank you!
