How much does sat tutoring improve scores?

For the youth taking a cold mock test, scoring within the normal range (16-28 for ACT and 900-1350 for SAT), and then begins tutoring, a standard 12-16 hour tutoring package usually yields 3-5 points of improvement on the ACT and 100-140 points of improvement on the SAT. Bob Schaeffer, the director of public education at FairTest, has recently made the media rounds calling expensive tutoring a form of “test prep steroids,” and the existence of expensive tutors has been cited in numerous articles about whether it might be time to abolish standardized tests for admission to the university.

Future teacher-I hope! I am currently at university in England. I got into blogging during lockdown, which is when I became an online tutee too! I love blogging and love tutoring. I'm also a total maths geek. I've been tutoring GCSE students for a while, and this is a blog about GCSE tutoring.
