Our Tutors

Amikka tutors are recent graduates and upperclassmen from top universities (like UPenn, Duke, and Harvard) who received perfect or near-perfect SAT/ACT scores.

All of our tutors are warm, friendly, motivating, and excellent communicators. By working with a team of vibrant young professionals, our students feel they can relate and connect with their tutor on a personal level.

Our Platform and Resources

Our digital SAT platform gives students a competitive edge by providing deep personalization and exclusive practice resources. Get access to 8 additional digital SAT practice exams, 3500 mimicked questions, 30 hours of video content, personalized insights, and projected SAT scores.

Average Results and Score Improvement Guarantee

For students who work with us for 30 - 40 hours, we see an average score increase of 240 points on the SAT and 5 points on the ACT.

We provide families with peace of mind by making our courses risk-free. Students are guaranteed the following results after tutoring with us for 40+ hours, or they will receive up to 20 hours of free tutoring until their next exam. This additional tutoring would be held in a small group setting.

  • Score a 1500 on the SAT or improve by 200+ points 
  • Score a 34 on the ACT or improve by 4+ points

Our Approach

We understand that tutoring is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Our SAT/ACT program focuses on the three fundamentals of standardized testing: time management, content, and strategy.

Based on the analysis of a diagnostic test given at the beginning of the course, we identify each student’s specific strengths and weaknesses to create an individualized program designed for improvement.

Course Format

For the flexibility of our students, we utilize an online tutoring format via Zoom. Each session includes face-to-face video instruction with a digital whiteboard to walk through exam content and strategies.

We recommend that students start by meeting with their tutor twice per week, for an hour and a half each session. This timing is flexible based on the student’s timeline, workload, and learning speed. 

We are very flexible in terms of scheduling. We are available for tutoring every day from 8am - 11pm EST! 

Free Video Courses

With this program, we provide three free video courses to enhance content knowledge and provide guidance with college application strategy.

SAT Video Course: Review hundreds of videos, questions, and practice exams designed by our top tutors. Usually $299, this course includes 30 hours of video content covering every part of the exam.

Usually $299, this course includes over 20 hours of video content, 80 videos, year-by-year checklists, and college essay examples created by applicants accepted into the top 10 US universities.
