OUR SAT TEST PREP PROGRAM

OUR SAT TEST PREP TUTORIALS:

Students enroll in our SAT TEST-PREP TUTORIALS in January of their junior year. Classes begin the last weekend of January and continue for the next 12/13 weeks, meeting once a week, usually over the weekend for three hours – 1 ½ hour math and 1 ½ hour verbal. Class size is limited to 15-18 students and students are organized into classes according to their skill-level determined by the PSAT test scores/school GPA. Our January classes prepare students to take the SAT Tests both in March and May of the junior year. If a student wishes to re-take the test in  October, we offer FREE summer classes to keep their skills sharp through targeted test practice sessions.

New students who do not enroll during our January session can take advantage of our summer classes. Sessions begin mid-July, meet once a week, over the weekend, for three hours and prepare students to take their SAT test in October of the senior year.

 

In order to prepare students for the verbal portion of the test, students are taught specific strategies of how to handle each section of the test.  In order to prepare students for the “reading” portion of the test, students are provided explicit details of how to read, highlight, comprehend and answer the questions. This is important since students need to make careful use of evidence as they read; some passages will ask students to also analyze data represented graphically in tables, graphs and charts. Since students are also tested in vocabulary-in-context, students learn vocabulary through proven methods other than the mere memorization of words. Students are also provided a thorough overview of grammar/sentence structure and writing skills to prepare them for the “writing” portion of the test. Finally, students learn important skills of how to write the optional essay.
